We performed a comparison between BrowserStack and Perfecto based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Functional Testing Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most valuable features are the variety of tools available."
"The main core concept behind this product is, it takes the overhead of maintaining all of your devices or particular computers. It continuously adds the latest devices that are coming into the market."
"I have found that BrowserStack is stable."
"Maintenance of the solution is easy."
"The integration is very good."
"The most valuable feature is the variety the solution offers around the different types of devices, especially mobile devices."
"BrowserStack's best feature is browser testing across different platforms, including mobile."
"BrowserStack has lots of devices to choose from."
"We're working in Agile and we need results ASAP. The fact that the lab provides same-day access to new devices is extremely important to us."
"We are able to offer a quality product that has been tested fully, which improves our customer satisfaction. That is a good thing. It has also reduced our IT infrastructure cost. We don't have to spend a lot on setting up infrastructure, which becomes redundant or obsolete very soon. It helps in offsetting that cost."
"I also like the reporting functions. We are constantly downloading these reports and sharing them with our final customers. They help us understand what kind of bugs are happening through the applications. The recording feature is handy because it lets us see a video of the process we run through the pipeline and discover the point at which the automation is breaking."
"The quality of our software has improved since we implemented this solution."
"It saves on the cost and effort of having to maintain our own virtual testing environment. Even our onshore team is not in the city that we work in, so that helps a lot. Even if we didn't invest a lot in getting multiple devices, having to share those devices would become a hassle."
"We are continuously doing testing on different environments, devices, and platforms. It executes seamlessly on multiple devices without having any connectivity issues. It has been really helpful for us to test on cloud devices."
"The automated test reporting functionality is the most valuable feature. We use the CI Dashboard. It's very important as it is the main reporting tool for our automated tests."
"Perfecto has affected our software quality in a good way. It has allowed us to execute on-demand and on-choice. We also track the number of issues that we find in the product. Every single day, we tag the issues that we found. For example, if something was found by automation, that means it was found by a Perfecto execution. Over time, we realized the real value in tracking those numbers. We can see now that we have clearly been finding issues earlier. It has allowed us to catch our defects earlier, thus improving the quality of our applications."
"If you are inactive for 30 minutes, the solution will close."
"The solution is slow."
"BrowserStack operates at a slow pace, it could improve by making it faster."
"We had some execution issues."
"Sometimes BrowserStack is really slow and devices are not loading. it is really annoying and that's why we bought several newer devices because sometimes it's affecting us a lot."
"I would like to see clearer visibility."
"We are having difficulty with the payment system for the BrowserStack team, as they only accept credit cards and we are encountering some issues."
"One of the biggest issues with BrowserStack is that if you don't have your network set up by the book, it's hard to get it to work with local desk machines."
"One improvement would be speed of execution. If it is an iOS native app, we have noticed that the speed is a bit slower. Perfecto might need to make some improvements in this area."
"Its performance should be improved. Anything to speed up the user interface would be a great help. We've had a lot of pain with their migration from a product UI that was based on Adobe Flash to the new product that is based on HTML5. Migrations like that seemed to be very painful and not a real smooth process. We're still sort of recovering from that migration from old technology to new, and we haven't got all the functionality ported over that we used to have on the old UI."
"We feel that Perfecto is a little slow. If they could improve on that slowness in accessing the app, when we want to click a button, that would be great because we feel the difference. An improvement in the connectivity speed is required."
"It is slow compared to physical device testing. The interactive speed could be improved."
"I would like to see the inclusion of machine learning features. If we can have that, it will be a better tool."
"We don't use Perforce's BlazeMeter with Perfecto. From my perspective, it's not really relevant."
"It would be nice if there were some kind of AI to compile a list of available devices. Currently, we have to look at the web interface to see the available devices, but the pipelines can't do it on their own there. We always need to do this manually, so it would be better if this feature were automated."
"When using devices on the cloud, it lags quite a bit at times. I know that these are real devices that are being projected on our laptop screens and monitors, but if the speed could be improved, that would be good."
Perfecto is a cloud-based mobile app testing tool that is designed to help test applications on different operating systems and devices. The solution lets users automate processes related to advanced test scenarios and access browser versions and devices according to individual requirements. With Perfecto’s smart test execution capabilities, teams can manage testing across web and mobile platforms using a single script, conduct parallel testing for large test suites, and design advanced user-based test scenarios to accelerate app release cycles. The solution is also helpful for IT departments, providing insights into biometrics, device vitals, audio injection, network throttling, packet loss, and rotation data to meet desired end-user conditions that align with business priorities.
Perfecto has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

Reviews from Real Users
Perfecto is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Some of its major advantages are that it has fantastic testing, reporting, and automation capabilities.
Roland C., QA Lead at BMO Financial, says, “The most valuable would be their Live Stream analysis, where I can see the live analysis of all the executions on a single device or multiple devices as well as track them. The live analysis and reporting would be the single most valuable feature.”
Andy B., Systems Engineer at a financial services firm, writes, “I really love the interaction it has with mobile devices, the testing capabilities, as well as reporting capabilities that we get from the application. Perfecto is excellent when it comes to executing cross-platform testing.”
A Director, QE Automation & Analytics at a financial services firm, says, “The most valuable feature is cloud-based automation and testing.”
Another PeerSpot reviewer, Kristina B., Product Manager at a manufacturing company, states, “The solution allows us to do seamless cross-platform testing, saves time, and comes with excellent customer service.”
