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."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Katalon Studio is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Some of its major advantages are that it has a valuable record and playback feature, is user friendly, and has fantastic integration capabilities.

    Khurram K., Head of SQA, Project Manager at Vroozi, says, "The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality. The solution allows for specific object files [and it] has great multi-parallel languages that work in the facilities here.”

    Another PeerSpot user expresses the multiple benefits the solution provides for him exclaiming, “I'd describe it as extremely user-friendly. There's a lot of information that is readily available on the internet, and therefore it's easy to learn about the product itself. The scalability of the product is good. The solution was quite stable throughout the time I used it. We found the installation process to be quite simple. There is also very helpful online documentation that can help you if you ever get stuck during the implementation process itself,” comments a Senior Quality Assurance Analyst at an educational organization.

    Tinnaphan W., Professional Services Manager at a non-profit, talks about the Katalon Studio’s advantages. He mentions, “The solution has very good integration capabilities overall. The client has an extremely stable testing framework, and therefore they rely on Katalon to get the results. The reporting is very good.”
