We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The slow nature of a cloud platform was compensated with parallel testing, and now we are able to finish our testing job faster than it was before COVID.""This product offers out-of-the-box geolocation testing in automation, which is amazing!""The Docker tunnel integration for local testing can be extremely useful to run on multiple instances in parallel.""In case something goes wrong at LambdaTest end, the Support team is extremely responsive to analyze any platform-related issues.""LambdaTest offers geolocation testing in automation, which is amazing!""Builds that took days to complete with in-house infrastructure were executed in a couple of hours.""The most valuable features are that it's essentially on-demand, and you only focus on getting the code that needs to be executed without having to worry about the OS, hardware, etc.""LambdaTest easily integrates with leading project management, bug tracking, and CI-CD tools like Jira, Asana, Jenkins, Circle CI, and more."

"The most valuable features of the SmartBear TestComplete are self-healing, they reduce the maintenance required. The different languages SmartBear TestComplete supports are good because some of our libraries are written in Python, JavaScript, and C#. It's very easy to put them all under one project and use them. The are other features that SmartBear TestComplete has but the competition widely has them as well.""The database checkpoints detect problems which are difficult for a human resource to find.""In TestComplete, I saw a conformed package of a tool that kept everybody in consistency. The team was able to regenerate further tests without having to manipulate more code because the record feature is great.""It works very fine. It is fast on almost any machine, and it is also very well organized. I like its object mapping and its capability to find and interact with almost everything that exists on Windows.""When compared to other tools, it is very simple.""It is very easy to maintain tests with this tool. It covers all necessary items in the test plan. The most painful item in testing is maintenance. When changes occur, the tests should be maintained.""You can record your actions and play them back later.""Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional."

Cons
"Responsive testing UI is a bit cluttered, whereas the LT browser is much better to use.""It would be nice to have an API for visual regression testing.""The analytics over the automation dashboard can be more intuitive.""LambdaTest needs to have native application testing, which would be a great help to my team.""The scalability is good with Amazon, but IBM had some issues.""You cannot perform native-app testing, as they offer simulation for web testing only.""Mobile application testing would be helpful for us.""If possible to simulate the finger pinch, it would make it more realistic."

More LambdaTest Cons →

"I didn't use it very heavily. One issue that I found was that there wasn't a quick way or a button to move Visual Basic scripts to TestComplete. We have a lot of such scripts in our organization, and it would be very useful to have some option to easily move these scripts. It is currently possible to convert these scripts to TestComplete, but it is not easy. I have to write some code, but everything is not available immediately.""During the distribution of our regression test cases, the control IDs are not always recognized correctly.""Right now, the product only supports Windows.""Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover.""Right now, when you buy the solution, you need to pay for one solution. You receive one set up and you install it and it's just in that one machine. It would be ideal if they could offer one subscription where you can connect to different machines with a group subscription.""Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.""If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better.""In the cross-browser domain, it has a few snags with Microsoft Edge and Chrome; although, these problems are not critical."

  • More LambdaTest Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing costs are in the range of $1,000 to $3,000."
  • "The license price for a physical machine is cheap, and for virtual machine, it is very expensive."
  • "Our ROI is about $10,000 a year."
  • "The pricing is a little above average — it could be lower."
  • "It costs a few hundred per year, but I am not sure. It is not at all expensive as compared to other tools."

  • "The price of SmartBear TestComplete could be less. The main challenge is when it comes to node-locked. They should use a subscription model, such as a monthly-based subscription or, a quarterly-based subscription. Their floating license is very expensive, and this high price should be reduced or provide, at a minimum, a subscription model."
