We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is very scalable.""This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us.""It is quite stable, and it has got very user-friendly features, which are important in terms of maintaining our scripts from a long-term perspective. It is very stable for desktop-based, UI-based, and mobile applications. Object repositories and other features are also quite good.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""The most valuable feature is stability.""The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local.""The cost is the most important factor in this tool.""The most valuable feature for UFT is the ability to test a desktop application."

"The solution is intuitive and pretty self-sustaining. You don't need a lot of help with it in terms of setup or assistance.""I'm from a UFT background, so Ranorex Studio has a similar feel in terms of how it handles objects. It just felt familiar even though I'd never seen it before. However, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of UFT, but it's a pretty good start, and it's cost-effective.""Code Conversion is one of the great features because sometimes, the automation tool doesn't have the capability of maneuvering around two specific evaluations.""This is a powerful, reliable and versatile all-around application testing suite."

Cons
"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure.""The pricing could be improved.""I have to keep the remote machine open while the tests are running, otherwise, it leads to instability.""It would be improved by adding a drag-and-drop interface to help alleviate the coding.""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.""Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful.""With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine.""In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable."

"Part of the challenge is that Ranorex's support is over in Europe, so we can't get responses on the same day. If we had support in the United States that was a bit more timely, that would be helpful.""For our purposes it requires integration with other products to get out the results in the format we want them. Adding this to the product could improve it.""The object detection functionality needs to be improved.""I'd like to know their testing strategies and to know what they can automate and what they can't. It can become pretty frustrating if you're trying to automate something that changes on a monthly or weekly basis."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of this solution is a little bit high and we are considering moving to another solution."
  • "When we compare in the market with other tools that have similar features, it may be a little bit extra, but the cost is ten times less."
  • "It is cheap, but if you take the enterprise license, it is valid for both software items."
  • "The licensing is very expensive, so often, we don't have enough VMs to run all of our tests."
  • "Its cost is a bit high. From the licensing perspective, I am using a concurrent license. It is not a seed license. It is something that I can use in our network. It can also be used by other users."

  • "The licensing fees depend on the number of users."
  • "There are several types of licenses and you need to choose depending on your needs and level of usage."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer: 
    The issue with all the integration is that it can become very costly and expensive and we'd like to be able to recommend one single tool that will do it all.

    Top Answer: 
    I don't have those numbers, but it's under $10,000. I think it's around $6,000 or something like that. We have, I believe, four floating licenses and one console license, so it's a pretty small… more »
    Top Answer: 
    We don't use Ranorex very heavily, so I can't really say. As I said, I've got one legacy developer who uses it to create automation scripts, and they use Ranorex for some basic local hosting. We're… more »
