Pros
"The most valuable features of Katalon Studio are its user-friendliness and the AI smart healing capabilities.""It is good for API testing. It is also good for continuous integration testing. You can connect it to Jenkins.""The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete.""It has been good so far for API testing on Mac. It is not that hard to learn and use. There is so much support out there, so if anyone wants to start using it, there is enough help.""The scalability of the product is good.""Katalon Studio's biggest advantage is its price. It's a good tool for the price, albeit with some limitations when you compare it with tools like Tricentis Tosca.""The most valuable feature of Katalon Studio is that everything can be managed from one platform."

Cons
"There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing.""I've seen that our clients are not truly aware of the power behind Katalon.""One improvement would be if it could support more programming languages such as JavaScript or Python. Right now, it is only on Groovy, which I think is not a too popular language.""Katalon Studio could improve having visual testing, but I think they're launching that feature very soon. We would like to see an increase in the usage of AI.""We would like to see improved integration with various reporting tools; this would make our testing data more complete.""Katalon Studio should improve its usability, it still needs some improvement where users can easily use it to build their automation suite. It requires some initial work to set it up. There should be more keywords in the library to limit the coding requirements, this will allow a non-technical person easily start using it, which would be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are using the free version. We plan on getting a paid version because there is a limitation in terms of the number of users. We want to maximize it."
  • "I am using the free version."
  • "Its pricing is quite reasonable. If you require their help in getting started, then there is a professional services fee on top of the product license cost."
  • "In terms of pricing, Katalon, Selenium, and Cypress all represent a similar level of investment. The software for these tools are either true open source or almost open source (because they charge a small fee), so pricing is a neutral point for me."
  • "The cost of Katalon Studio is expensive but it is less than some of the other solutions, such as Micro Focus UFT or SmartBear TestComplete. The cost is the main reason we are using Katalon Studio."
  • "Katalon Studio is less expensive than other solutions, such as Micro Focus UFT."
