We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features of the product are the performance parameters it gives us.""The most valuable feature of HeadSpin it's the integration with other solutions. It is great. I can search for an element or do a quick debugging on the application right on HeadSpin. It's very useful.""The initial setup of HeadSpin was very easy and user-friendly. It was easy to configure and write a script.""The technical support is really helpful because we can set up direct calls with them if we want to. We can use Zoom or Google Meet to interact with them directly, and if there is an issue in our system, they will help us by reproducing the issue in their machines and trying to figure out a solution. The support is really smooth, and we like that they're very supportive.""It has an interesting feature called AV box testing. A lot of companies that are in the OTT segment don't really understand what their streaming is like. They can't test for streaming quality. There are restrictions where you cannot simulate live streaming. For example, on Netflix, you can't simulate how a movie is being streamed on a remote device. That's why HeadSpin has got this AV box testing feature. It is a patented feature. They send an AV box to your location, and you can test live streaming, which is something that no other company does."

Cons
"HeadSpin could improve on the user interface because it is very poor. The checks that are done on the iOS devices are very difficult, but for Android, it runs great. For all iOS devices, the user interface and how it interacts with the device are very poor.""Sometimes, devices go offline and some features are not functioning on some devices, specifically on iOS.""If you want to do some testing or check the devices manually or check the application in a particular device manually, it is really laggy. That's a disappointment because sometimes we would like to do manual testing when our local devices are not available.""They should automate their onboarding. A lot of things are still manual. They can create a video assistant or something like that to completely automate the entire process.""HeadSpin needs to improve the hardware. With the mobile, the battery life reduces and must be continuously charged."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It has a yearly license. There is no other option. It is expensive. There are a lot of other cheaper players in the market, but it is like a Mercedes. You pay an extra premium for it, but you get the benefits. I would love to see them come up with project-based costing. Companies that are low on funds or new-age can do with pricing that is easily digestible. They can give them a pricing model for three months. They can provide a startup package."
  • "I believe the licensing cost is cheap because it's a total solution, hardware, license and software."
  • "We have a yearly license for 16 devices."
