Pros
"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.""I have found CrossBrowserTesting to be scalable."

More CrossBrowserTesting Pros →

"What I find valuable is that Tricentis is always refining the test methodology. They listen to feedback from the analysts about what the testing tool should do, and then Tricentis always implements it. So all the necessary testing functions are already implemented in their tools.""The reporting is really nice.""It's integrated with different technologies, desktop applications, package solutions like SAP, and mobile applications.""It can provide all levels of testing from design to execution to reporting.""It's been very helpful to have connectivity with mobile. The tool also identifies some of the actual changes from the recordings on the actual testing suite. That is something that I really like.""It's a simple tool, particularly in terms of system testing. You can also convert and automate using Tricentis Tosca with ease.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is the recovery and cleanup process. Suppose there is a list of test cases and one test case has failed, it should not impact the other test cases. We can reuse the same test case. We can change the configuration of parameters and then use the test cases on the same thing. So, that's a useful thing. Otherwise, we have to use the cleanup process. Another useful feature is to have our own library files. We can create our objects in the libraries and reuse them. There is no need to create duplicate data for that. They have been giving some enhancements recently which means integration is also there. They've integrated with different software like Jenkins, Bamboo. So, we can also create pipeline points. They have recently given SAP and everything, which is very useful.""The most valuable feature is being able to create a test case by recording some scenarios and then leasing that task case to other scenarios."

Cons
"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.""We had some issues with the onboarding process and the cloud conductivity could improve."

More CrossBrowserTesting Cons →

"The user management could improve in Tricentis Tosca because it is confusing. It would be better to have it in one place. Having to add it to the cloud and to a specific project can be a mess.""Primarily I'm dealing with customers looking for a cheap solution, and they are willing to try open-source automation solutions. So from this perspective, the price of Tosca is not as competitive.""The UI does not have the option of automating the scroll bars.""The support we received from Tricentis Tosca was good, but it can improve.""While the initial setup was straightforward, we required assistance with the configuration to ensure that everything was done correctly.""The document object model or some aspects of it has a bit of a learning curve.""Their license management should be improved. One of our customers is a global customer. They want to use one licensed server and then split the licenses based on the different users of the different business units, but currently, there is only one license server that everybody can access. There is no control, and that's why sometimes congestion can happen.""I would like to see more implementation of AI on the self-healing aspect. That would be like the next step."

  • More CrossBrowserTesting Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "My understanding is that it's an expensive product, although I don't know the specifics with regards to pricing."
  • "I would like to see better costing packs. There are several features but USD $11,000 for one license is expensive."
  • "Tricentis Tosca is an expensive solution and there is an annual license required. The whole licensing process is confusing and it could be made easier."
  • "I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to talk about the pricing, but it has some significant costs. For example, you have to pay a license and maintenance fee. Then the rest of the terms are negotiable. We have to consider what we need and what benefit we get from it."
  • "They are probably more expensive than other comparable tools, but you also get the full suite of testing tools."
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
  • "I am satisfied with the cost."
  • "A competitor of Tricentis Tosca: Katalon Studio, is very similar and offers lower pricing, though Tricentis Tosca offers more features and benefits."
