The most valuable feature is reusing test cases. We can put in a set of test cases for an application and, every time we deploy it, we are able to rerun those tests very easily. It saves us time and improves quality as well.

The most important feature which I like in qTest manager is the user-friendliness, especially the tabs. Since I'm the admin, I use the configuration field settings and allocate the use cases to the different QA people. It is not difficult, as a QA person, for me to understand what is happening behind the scenes.

The JIRA integration is really important to us because it allows our business analysts to see test results inside the JIRA ticket and that we have met the definition of "done," and have made sure we tested to the requirements of the story.

The integration with Selenium and other tools is one of the valuable features. Importing of test cases is also good.

The solution's real-time integration with JIRA is seamless.

Being able to log into Defects, go right into JIRA, add that defect to the user story, right there at that point, means we connect all of that. That is functionality we haven't had in the past. As a communication hub, it works really well. It's pretty much a closed loop; it's all contained right there. There's no delay. You're getting from the defect to the system to JIRA to the developer.

qTest helps us compile issues and have one place to look for them. We're not chasing down emails and other sources. So in the grand scheme of things, it does help to resolve issues faster because everyone is working off of the same information in one location.

I like the way it structures a project... We're able to put the test cases into qTest or modify something that's already there, so it's a reusable-type of environment. It is very important that we can do that and change our test data as needed...

The test automation tracking is valuable because our automated testing systems are distributed and they did not necessarily have a single point where they would come together and be reported. Having all of them report back to qTest, and having one central place where all of my test executions are tracked and reported on, is incredibly valuable because it saves time.

The main thing that really stuck out when we started using this tool, is the linkability of qTest to JIRA, and the traceability of tying JIRA requirement and defects directly with qTest. So when you're executing test cases, if you go to fail it, it automatically links and opens up a JIRA window. You're able to actually write up a ticket and it automatically ties it to the test case itself.

I use it for test case management. I manage testers and I use qTest in order to schedule and track test case execution within my testing group. We're on the cloud version.

The primary use case is to the overall testing process and management of our test cases, as far as the design, creation, review, and archiving of them goes. We use it to manage their overall status. We are cloud users, so we've got the latest and greatest version. They transparently push updates to us.

There is an upfront, yearly cost for concurrent licenses, meaning we're not limited to a specific number of users, only to a specific number of users online at a certain time. That works really well for us because we're a global organization. We'll have people online in San Diego, and those licenses then can be used later in the day by people online in Tel Aviv. It's been a really great licensing model for us. I believe that there is a maintenance cost as well. I'm not really involved in the payment of that, so I don't really know what it would be.

We're paying a little over $1,000 for a concurrent license. One of the solutions we looked at was about half of that but that one is very much a bare-bones test management tool. There are no additional costs. We pay a flat yearly rate for each license.
