We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Our clients have requested by all types of testing, including mobile, desktop, and API testing and all of those are covered by Katalon. I find that very valuable, very complete.""It is good for API testing. It is also good for continuous integration testing. You can connect it to Jenkins.""I like the feature where you can define a model that represents your website and then reuse the components from the model. It makes creating more test cases easy.""The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options.""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 is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements."

"It's integrated with different technologies, desktop applications, package solutions like SAP, and mobile applications.""The solution has plenty of features compared to other solutions.""The reporting is really nice.""We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.""It is easy to maintain and easy to automate. No coding skills are required to automate. It is also easy in terms of transferring knowledge and skills. Many of my team members shifted over the past one and a half years, and there was no big issue with respect to knowledge sharing. It is a good tool that enables me to re-automate my scripts and update my scripts as quickly as possible. Looking at the amount of rework and maintenance activity that we had done for our scripts, it might have been a nightmare with some other scripting tool.""Tricentis Tosca is a really cool tool that you don't have to be technical to use it. Additionally, the solution is easy to use. The modules, libraries, and reusable are in an efficient way to update all the tests. I find it spot on with that. We also started using the design which we switched from Excel. The design was superior to Excel.""You can quickly build automated testing, manage it, and have it run on a regular basis to ensure that there are no issues.""This solution is very easy to learn and any non-programmer or manual tester, with little experience in automation, can pick it up quite easily."

Cons
"It seems to lack a few requirements that a typical customer would want. Compared to other solutions, this product is lacking.""Now we are having difficulties in using it and had to limit our automation experts to the features that Katalon allows us to use for free. It was free access and they claimed that it would be free for all time.""Currently, I'm the only one who can use it because I have a Mac. It is giving a hard time to my team members who are on Linux. My team members are using Linux, and Katalon doesn't support Linux very well. It keeps on crashing. It crashes and shuts down almost every time they save their work, so they are not able to use it. It should have good support for Linux. We don't know what the problem is. If the Katalon team can pick up this issue, it will be very helpful.""It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved."

More Katalon Studio Cons →

"You need to spend much more time learning the tool and how to use it, compared to others.""I would like to see better integration with other testing tools.""Tricentis Tosca's performance could be better. Sometimes when we are remapping or when it is loading it can take a lot of time. There are free solutions that have better performance in this area.""While the initial setup was straightforward, we required assistance with the configuration to ensure that everything was done correctly.""It would be of great help if they can fix the loading or performance issues. Sometimes, when I create the test case folder and test cases, it feels like it has loading or performance issues. When passing the objects, we can't sometimes find the exact element. We need to find out that exact location and just give the path for that, and then it works. In the pipeline, when creating Jenkins, we create the list execution for passing the execution list to the commander. I feel it is a bit late, by a fraction of seconds. I first thought it could be my mistake or a setting issue, but I worked on that, and it's not a mistake or a setting issue.""Many times when we have raised a ticket, we did not get an urgent response.""The solution needs to improve its simulation of mobile environments. Right now, that aspect is really lacking.""I have found that some of the functions could be missed in the solution for new users. They are not obviously present."
