Cons
"One aspect that can be improved is testing for desktop applications. I would like to see them support more technologies in this area.""I've seen that our clients are not truly aware of the power behind Katalon.""It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing.""We would like to see improved integration with various reporting tools; this would make our testing data more complete.""It seems to lack a few requirements that a typical customer would want. Compared to other solutions, this product is lacking.""Katalon lacks integration with other software, including integrating other languages like .NET and PHP.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""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."
