Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It provides automated testing. Instead of us doing manual testing, we can utilize Leapwork, and it tests most of our critical processes. In the next phase, we also plan to do some process work with it, such as using Leapwork to create reports or provide certain extracts of data.""The most valuable of this solution is the no code option. It offers drag and drop when it comes to development and removes the need for a developer.""The UI is user-friendly."

More LEAPWORK Pros →

"Integrates well with other products.""The most valuable feature for UFT is the ability to test a desktop application.""The most valuable feature of Micro Focus UFT Developer is the flexibility to work with many different types of software.""The most valuable feature is the automation of test cases.""The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.""The solution is very scalable.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local."

More OpenText UFT Developer Pros →

"It is a very comprehensive tool, and there is a significant learning curve to being able to adopt the tool. Because it does so much, there is only so much that you can learn. You can, however, do some simpler things right away. They do have a kind of boot camp where some of their experts engage with you, and during that time, you can work on the top initiatives that you want to do, and that's a good process. After you start using the tool, there is a lot more that you would want to do.""The initial setup is difficult.""The only thing that I don't like about the product is the need to deploy agents on the laptops of people doing the testing. So, you have an agent on a server, then you have an agent on the laptop of the person who is doing the testing, and that seems like a lot of stuff and a kind of anti-cloud. Why do I have to deploy agents on people's machines in order to do something in the cloud? I'm sure they're doing that so they can monitor their licensing and all that stuff, but it is not necessarily a friendly process.""This solution could be improved by offering better reporting related to the integration into Azure DevOps."

More LEAPWORK Cons →

"The support from Micro Focus needs a lot of improvement.""The tool could be a little easier.""Object definition and recognition need improvement, especially with calendar controls. I faced challenges with schedulers and calendars.""We push one button and the tests are completely executed at once, so just have to analyze and say it's okay. It would be nice if this could be entirely automated.""The pricing could be improved.""UFT Developer is good, but it requires high-level development skills. Scripting is something that everybody should know to be able to work with this product. Currently, it is very development intensive, and you need to know various scripting languages. It would be good if the development effort could be cut short, and it can be scriptless like Tosca. It will help in more adoption because not every team has people with a software engineering background. If it is scriptless, the analysts who wear multiple hats and come from different backgrounds can also use it in a friendly manner. It is also quite expensive.""In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable.""Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful."

    LEAPWORK Features

    LEAPWORK has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Hyper-visual debugging: LEAPWORK’s hyper-visual debugging leads to faster maintenance. LEAPWORK’s platform provides representation of issues either with a video recording of the run, a debug version of the automation flow that contains data-level insights, or an activity log.
    • Reusable sub-flows: With LEAPWORK, you can identify process steps that can resurface across different automation cases, which can then be turned into reusable sub-flows. The sub-flows can be used over and over across projects and teams.
    • Robust execution across multiple machines: LEAPWORK makes it possible for you to run automation in multiple environments at the same time. The solution also makes it easy to handle SSO scenarios and execute remotely.
    • Efficient scheduling: With LEAPWORK you can schedule automation flows to run during any time of day or night, in parallel, or on local, remote, and virtual machines, in the cloud, or even in closed networks. The scheduling feature can also be programmed to run once or repeatedly according to a recurring schedule.
    • Calendar assistant: LEAPWORK has an advanced calendar assistant that allows you to see what is running and when, which also helps you plan more strategically. In addition, the calendar assistant provides you with an overview of agent resource usage.
    • Workflow and assignee management: LEAPWORK enables you to segregate duties and to track contributors as needed, providing complete transparency so that managing hundreds of automation flows is more efficient.
    • Governance and compliance: LEAPWORK offers audit logs, video-based reporting, and dashboards, which helps you manage governance issues. LEAPWORK also provides compliance features to help your organization.
