Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is intuitive and pretty self-sustaining. You don't need a lot of help with it in terms of setup or assistance.""Code Conversion is one of the great features because sometimes, the automation tool doesn't have the capability of maneuvering around two specific evaluations.""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.""This is a powerful, reliable and versatile all-around application testing suite."

"The most valuable features are tools like IntelliSense and ReSharper.""It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us.""The stability has always been very good.""I was satisfied with the support given by customer service.""Easy to use and easily scalable.""It is a very common and strong product. A lot of support is available for this product.""The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable.""Performance-wise, it is a great tool."

Cons
"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.""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.""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."

"The solution is quite expensive.""In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line.""The pricing of this solution should be lowered.""There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less.""It is not good in terms of performance. When you open Visual Studio, you have to wait for a while to process your code. It uses a lot of resources and has a lot of features. If we could disable some of the features, it would be lighter and faster to use. Nowadays, for some of the projects, we use VS Code for JavaScript or Python. VS Code is very light and easy to use, whereas, in Visual Studio, we have to wait because it takes time to compile or run a project. It has a lot of competitors in terms of performance, such as Intelligent ID. Intelligent ID is very easy to use. It has many features, and it is lighter to use than Visual Studio. In terms of error handling, sometimes, it shows an error before you finish your code, which can be improved. It would be good if it has a version for Linux. I use VS Code on Linux, but I am not sure if Visual Studio has a version for Linux.""It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently.""One of the problems with this solution is you need to be highly technically skilled to operate it, it is not for everyone.""The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable."

    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 »

    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 »

    In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line. It gives me memory analysis, however, it's not taking me to the code lines. That's what I was… more »
