Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of Katalon Studio is that everything can be managed from one platform.""The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding.""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 scalability of the product is good.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete.""The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality.""User-friendly and a good solution.""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 solution scales well.""SoapUI is uncomplicated and user-friendly.""Using SoapUI's automation suites to run all our test cases saved us a lot of time. Running 300 test cases takes about three to four days. When you automate all that, it takes only two to three hours.""It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly.""The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature.""One good feature is SoapUI's URL check, which allows you to check among the applications. I'm not just talking about the ones for Android. It has all kinds of multi-world tests that are really helpful.""It's a very simple solution to use.""SoapUI Pro is a good tool when it comes to API design and orchestration. Additionally, it is beneficial for functional and for performance testing."

Cons
"Katalon lacks integration with other software, including integrating other languages like .NET and PHP.""It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""One aspect that can be improved is testing for desktop applications. I would like to see them support more technologies in this area.""There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example.""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.""I've seen that our clients are not truly aware of the power behind Katalon."

"SoapUI Pro is a little heavy due to the number of features. Previously it was not that heavy. Now the tool is too heavy, they should work on fixing this issue because until your system has lots of resources, you won't be able to use it seamlessly. The performance of the application itself could improve.""I find that I'm fighting with the opportunities to order requests.""There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users.""Grouping of the cases is not possible in SoapUI, to my knowledge. When working with critical cases or the, we were not able to group them properly. We can definitely create a suite and add them there, but within a whole suite, we have to identify them, which was not easy.""I would like more documentation, training, tutorials, etc. Also, I don't particularly appreciate that I have to save everything. It takes up a lot of space on my laptop, but I have to install the WSDL again If I don't save it.""SoapUI would benefit from some more customization abilities. It's a good interface, but it would be nice if they added the ability to build custom dashboards where the user can do their own bar graphs and pie charts.""It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there.""SoapUI Pro could improve by having dashboards."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We are using the free version of Katalon Studio at this point."
  • "The price is not high it's good."
  • "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."
  • More Katalon Studio Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
  • "My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years."
  • "The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
  • "We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member."
  • "SoapUI Pro is open source but it has a subscription-based model which involves some more features. At the moment we are using the free version. The Pro version requires a license, and it is an annual license to use it."
