"IBM Rational Functional Tester is very contextual."
"TestComplete is simple, it's a very easy-to-use tool."
"You can record your actions and play them back later."
"The ease-of-use and quality of the overall product are above average."
"The initial setup is pretty easy and it's quick to deploy."
"It is very easy to maintain tests with this tool. It covers all necessary items in the test plan. The most painful item in testing is maintenance. When changes occur, the tests should be maintained."
"Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional."
"In TestComplete, I saw a conformed package of a tool that kept everybody in consistency. The team was able to regenerate further tests without having to manipulate more code because the record feature is great."
"They need to do a complete revamp so that even a non-technical person can manage the tool."
"To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing."
"Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover."
"In the cross-browser domain, it has a few snags with Microsoft Edge and Chrome; although, these problems are not critical."
"During the distribution of our regression test cases, the control IDs are not always recognized correctly."
"In SmartBear TestComplete the integration with Jenkins could be easier. Additionally, some of the controls could have better customization options. For example, if a grid is used and it contains multiple controls within it, it can be a checkbox, radio button, or any kind of control, the way the Object Spy is operating currently there is a lot of room for improvement."
"Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work."
"Right now, when you buy the solution, you need to pay for one solution. You receive one set up and you install it and it's just in that one machine. It would be ideal if they could offer one subscription where you can connect to different machines with a group subscription."
"If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better."
