Powerful automation testing capabilities with an easy to use and well organized interface
Pros and Cons
  • "This tool is very easy to use and I think that anyone can come in, having no experience with it, and within four to six months be comfortable with it."
  • "I would like to see better integration with other testing tools."

What is our primary use case?

We are primarily using this product as an automation tool, for regression, and as a revision tool. 

How has it helped my organization?

Using the automation tool, I can transfer test cases that are being done manually to ones that are automated. After about 30 such instances, I use the regression system from the suite to create all possible combinations of test cases to try with the new version. This gives us an overview of how the software is performing. Also, when major updates take place, we re-run all of the regression tests to make sure that it still conforms to the requirements.

What is most valuable?

The automation testing functionality is very powerful.

This tool is very easy to use and I think that anyone can come in, having no experience with it, and within four to six months be comfortable with it.

The graphical interface means that you don't have to write any code.

The interface is very organized. You can find folders and settings for everything that you need, and you can easily connect things together.  

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with other testing tools. There is full integration with Selenium and having this with other tools would be good.

Integration with other programming languages would also be helpful.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Tricentis Tosca for the past three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not really found many problems or bugs when using this product, so stability has not been an issue.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Tricentis Tosca is very scalable. You can easily move from a small test suite to a larger test suit, which I think is pretty good. We about 100 users in the organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in touch with technical support from the vendor.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Selenium HQ, Katalon Studio, and Ranorex.

How was the initial setup?

Our organization is broken into separate sections and there is a team for installation and configuration that handled the deployment. As I am not part of that team, I am unable to judge the complexity of the setup.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to make use of the extensive library that they have. It is a good collection of training videos and documentation, and I would advise everybody to go through these materials. They are really helpful and it will allow them to learn much faster, bringing them to the point where they can use it to its full potential.

In summary, I am really comfortable with this tool, I haven't had many problems, and it's sufficient for our work. In the three years that I have been working with it, whenever I've needed something, I've been able to find it.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Feels very complete for the kind of tool, the options and the service that it provides
Pros and Cons
  • "Ability to carry out automatic testing without having coding knowledge."
  • "Difficult trying to configure on more than one browser."

What is our primary use case?

I'm a QA specialist and customer of TestProject. 

What is most valuable?

One of the valuable features the solution offers is the chance to be able to perform automatic tests by recording, and to create them without having coding knowledge. You need to be able to configure the elements but it doesn't require a high level of coding experience. I'm very pleased with the tool and the testing I've done has been positive. The only thing left now is to test how it behaves with the Angular solution. This solution is quite easy to use, it's great. Once we start using it, I think it will prove to be very functional and intuitive. Documentation is very clear and useful for a regular user to configure and use it.

What needs improvement?

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 to pass between browsers. Perhaps that's my issue but I haven't found a solution to the problem. I've also noticed that the solution blocks a little when I try to use the auto-propose function. Those are the limitations I've identified till now but I need to carry out additional testing. Although documentation is good it would be helpful to be able to access instructions to help with understanding some of the functionalities.

For how long have I used the solution?

I had worked with this solution several years ago and then moved to another solution. I've returned to TestProject over the past few weeks to refresh my knowledge. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

TestProject is an open-source tool, and it feels very complete for the kind of tool, the options and the service that it provides. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at Katalon Studio and was trying to run the solution over a software we've developed in the company. It's a web application that is developed in C# and Java and Angular. I was looking for an end-to-end tool that allows me to create automatic tests. I downloaded and tried to explore it but wasn't able to get the necessary performance. 

What other advice do I have?

There are some things related to this solution that I'm not quite sure about yet so for now I will rate it an eight out of 10.
