Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The test repository to follow the test progress is most valuable because we can easily create and manage a huge number of test scripts. We can copy and paste, replicate, and drag and drop many tests scripts. We can create test scripts en masse. When you have a high volume of tests, the tool is quite useful. It works well when you want to manage a lot of tests, such as you have 1,000 or more test scripts."

"The most valuable features are the desktop and mobile modules.""The initial setup is pretty easy and it's quick to deploy.""TestComplete is simple, it's a very easy-to-use tool.""The reporting is ready to use and doesn't require any setup.""The ease-of-use and quality of the overall product are above average.""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.""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."

Cons
"The setup of Panaya Recorder is a bit complex. Panaya is a SaaS application, but you need to install some components on your computer. You need to set up your computer to allow Panaya Recorder to work. There are five or six things to do each time you install Panaya for any user. If you miss something, Panaya Recorder doesn't work. So, it is complex to install."

"In SmartBear TestComplete the integration with Jenkins could be easier. Additionally, some of the controls could have better customization options. For example, if a grid is used and it contains multiple controls within it, it can be a checkbox, radio button, or any kind of control, the way the Object Spy is operating currently there is a lot of room for improvement.""In the cross-browser domain, it has a few snags with Microsoft Edge and Chrome; although, these problems are not critical.""If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better.""There could be API interfaces with this tool.""To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing.""The licensing costs are a little bit high and should be reduced.""Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is expensive. Because of its cost, we couldn't deploy Panaya to a large extent. Its licensing should be improved, and there should be more license types. There should be an advanced license and a basic license."
  • More Panaya Test Dynamix Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The option we chose was around $2,000 USD."
  • "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."
  • "We have a TestComplete 12 license."
  • "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."

    Top Answer:While it's my understanding that clients don't seem bothered by the pricing, I can't speak to the actual cost of the product. That said, it is, as far as I know, competitive in the market.
    Top Answer:Right now, the product only supports Windows. We'd like to see it work with other operating systems as well. They should definitely be working with iOS, for example. That should just be a given.
