We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I have found CrossBrowserTesting to be scalable.""Each new session started with the live testing feature allows for a cleared browser and new experience to be able to not only see these attributes on the page clearly but also pass clean data."

More CrossBrowserTesting Pros →

"So far, the stability has proven to be quite good.""They update for the latest browsers and mobile phones and support a lot of combinations. They have 1,000-plus desktop combinations and browser versions, which is really great. We need that at Applause. The all-in-one testing suite aspect of it is really important because most of our clients prefer to go to one place.""The most critical thing is that this software aligns with our Agile and DevOps way of doing things. It integrates with kickoff scripts through DevOps.""The most valuable feature is cross-browser, cross-OS, cross-mobile device testing.""I like the dashboard and seeing the test results. As a manager, I like to see the insights of the people using it, understanding the total path and run. I can see all of that as a manager. I also know team members love seeing the dashboard and seeing the test results in real-time.""Sauce Labs provides us with more combinations to test, so we can keep adding platforms and devices to our network. That's been a very seamless experience. Let's say there's an iOS or a private device we need. Sauce Labs has helped get all those set up when needed.""The error logging is also very robust. If we run a test through Sauce Labs and there's some sort of issue, a log will appear on the screen. Log messages are usually heinous and horrible... Sauce Labs is incredibly good at saying things like, 'Hey, here is the exact issue. Fix this and you can run the test.' That helps in getting things up and running and executing the way they should.""Sauce Labs is optimized for automation and integration with the major CI/CD platforms and developer tools. We have an integration with App Center that we're working on. They have a storage API that lets us retrieve APK and IPA, iOS and Android builds off the phone, so that we can continue testing with CI/CD. They integrate with Jenkins, and Jenkins is the main CI/CD."

Cons
"We had some issues with the onboarding process and the cloud conductivity could improve.""Being able to test on real devices via the virtual connection is wonderful, but it can cause some lag and load time issues while testing."

More CrossBrowserTesting Cons →

"The testing process is difficult. I need to prove the complete competency of the tool, and I am finding that challenging.""We have faced challenges with the availability of mobile devices. There was once or twice where there were no mobile devices available.""When we were in development, it was a bit of a pain because we have onshore and offshore development. One of our development shops is in India, and we were running tests over there. When some of the users tried to log in, it was slow for them or we didn't have enough licenses. That was during the core development before we even launched.""The real concern is the load time of applications or real devices when we start our tests. It takes some time to load the application or web browser. Sometimes, it is frustrating too. Since they are real devices, we understand it takes some time to load. However, if it were to improve, then that would be a great asset to the solution. So, we would like better responsive times when opening applications and running tests.""Sauce Labs' dashboard could be improved by adding more filters and allowing more customization options. There was one instance where the dashboard on the Sauce Labs UI didn't meet our requirements, so we had to use the Sauce Labs API to create some apps and dashboards on our own. The API endpoints could be a little more robust and customizable.""This product is not super scalable, because you have a very specific number of VMs that you can use.""Another aspect that could be improved is having the virtual devices boot up a little quicker. Sometimes we wait up to a minute before a device is available. It would be nice if that was 30 seconds or so.""I would like for there to be more detail in regards to the quality of our code i.e. how many failures occurred, how many passed based on industry standard metrics, etc."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "SmartBear offers bundles of products that work together."
  • More CrossBrowserTesting Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is definitely on the higher end, and there are other options that are more cost-effective."
  • "With respect to pricing, they did a bundled discount because we went with Sauce Labs for both mobile and browser. They were very competitive on pricing and provided a bundle discount for us as a larger customer."
  • "We did initially go with Sauce Labs because of the pricing and integration."
  • "The number of concurrent VMs that Sauce Labs provides depends on your purchase license level."
  • "We pay for a specific number of VMs."
  • "Their pricing is incredibly competitive."
  • "The pricing is reasonable due to the amount of diversity that they provide. However, I feel they might be more flexible to bargain based on their relationship with our organization."
  • "They could improve on the pricing because it seems pretty expensive. I'm sure it's justified, but it's expensive."
