Reviews from Real Users

Perfecto is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Some of its major advantages are that it has fantastic testing, reporting, and automation capabilities.

Roland C., QA Lead at BMO Financial, says, “The most valuable would be their Live Stream analysis, where I can see the live analysis of all the executions on a single device or multiple devices as well as track them. The live analysis and reporting would be the single most valuable feature.”

Andy B., Systems Engineer at a financial services firm, writes, “I really love the interaction it has with mobile devices, the testing capabilities, as well as reporting capabilities that we get from the application. Perfecto is excellent when it comes to executing cross-platform testing.”

A Director, QE Automation & Analytics at a financial services firm, says, “The most valuable feature is cloud-based automation and testing.”

Another PeerSpot reviewer, Kristina B., Product Manager at a manufacturing company, states, “The solution allows us to do seamless cross-platform testing, saves time, and comes with excellent customer service.”

Perfecto was previously known as Perfecto Mobile, Perfecto Web.

Good automated testing, but the price and performance could be better
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is automated testing."
  • "We have had some issues with performance, which is something that should be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We write applications for mobile devices and we use Perfecto Mobile to test them. We set up automated tests, although we perform manual tests in some cases.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is automated testing.

What needs improvement?

We have had challenges while using this product.

The main problem has to do with OTP. OTP comes on the SIM but there is no SIM card in the cloud, so it makes it a big challenge for us. It is available in development but because we don't have the OTP API exposed, we don't have it in production.

We have had some issues with performance, which is something that should be improved.

The price of Perfecto Mobile should be lowered.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Perfecto Mobile for more than a year.

November 2022
Learn what your peers think about Perfecto. Get advice and tips from experienced pros sharing their opinions. Updated: November 2022.
653,757 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We experience some device hangs, as well as other performance-related issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is not auto-scalable. We have dedicated devices that we use for testing our applications. There is an option for scalability but we aren't using it.

How are customer service and support?

We have had contact with technical support and they are good. We have no issues with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not easy because the networking team is in the bank and the network is secure. It took a lot of time to get approval, receive access, and then set it up properly. 

What about the implementation team?

We had to engage the Perfecto team to assist with deployment.

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

This is an expensive solution compared to others, by 30% to 40%.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I would recommend. However, we have complaints about both cost and performance.

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Stable, easy initial setup, and offers coverage of various mobile devices and operating systems
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable aspect of the solution is that it covers all types of devices on the market allowing you to test different versions of an operating system."
  • "It would be ideal if there was a complete integration with other test management tools and other applications like HPLM, Micro Focus, or Microsoft Azure."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a mobile testing tool.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is that it covers all types of devices on the market allowing you to test different versions of an operating system.

What needs improvement?

I looked at the solution a year ago. I'm not sure what functionalities were lacking or need improvement, but I do find it to be a good tool.

It would be ideal if there was a complete integration with other test management tools and other applications like HPLM, Micro Focus, or Microsoft Azure.

For how long have I used the solution?

I worked with the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Once we had an open session and during the next entry, we had difficulties re-entering the tool. This only happened once or twice, but no more than that.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very easy to handle.

How are customer service and technical support?

The current version of the solution is very stable, so we've never had to contact technical support.

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

We use both Perfecto Mobile and Mobile Center. Our customers dictate which tools we use. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy, especially with the cloud version, which is what we use.

What about the implementation team?

My colleagues handled the setup phase and we had a center dedicated to mobile, but I am unsure if we solicited any outside help.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model.

The solution itself is fairly broad in scope meaning you don't need to implement other solutions.

While Mobile Center is a little difficult to install, Perfecto Mobile is simpler for both setup and training.

I would rate the solution eight out of ten. It's the best tool, but it can still be updated to be even better.

It offers cloud-based architecture for manual testing, along with integration with Appium and Selenium.

What is most valuable?

  • Cloud-based architecture for manual testing
  • Performance testing & automation of browsers, mobile devices and gadgets
  • Enhanced reporting with video recording and proper steps
  • Wind tunnel
  • Appium + Selenium integration
  • Best-ever tool for RWD apps
  • Parallel execution of almost any browsers, mobile devices and gadgets

How has it helped my organization?

It has saved hours of manual testing time, costs and efforts. It's pretty much the best tool that has a repository of all the execution status, apps and information, which can be available in any part of the world.

What needs improvement?

Ability to use/automate Windows/iOS/Linux environment would be a great feature to add in cloud.

Increasing local deployment of cloud devices/resources worldwide would be even better.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is 100%.

Technical Support:

Technical support is 100%.

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

We used Perfecto + UFT and then switched to Appium + Perfecto as it gives more flexibility and better control.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was simple. Perfecto took care of all the setup.

What about the implementation team?

Perfecto made it look easy.

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

Go for private cloud as it has unlimited hours of testing and the most availability of devices.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated multiple open-source and commercial tools, but Perfecto helped our needs by providing secured connection over cloud, as we use VPN.

What other advice do I have?

Perfecto has a highly active community so just blend with it. Completing their certifications would give a bright overview about their products and it helps to get better at the tool.
