Pros
"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 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.""TestComplete is simple, it's a very easy-to-use tool.""The solution has a very nice interface.""The initial setup is pretty easy and it's quick to deploy.""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.""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.""You can record your actions and play them back later."

Cons
"Right now, the product only supports Windows.""To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing.""There could be API interfaces with this tool.""During the distribution of our regression test cases, the control IDs are not always recognized correctly.""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.""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.""Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work."

"In an upcoming release, there should be a SaaS offering available.""Difficult trying to configure on more than one browser.""We'd like to see a direct cloud from TestProject instead of some other third party."

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."
  • "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: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.
    Top Answer:Ability to carry out automatic testing without having coding knowledge.
    Top Answer:I have had some difficulty trying to configure it on several browsers. I was able to configure several tests, but I can run in one browser only. Whenever I run a test they always fail when they need… more »
