They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic. That is one of the most valuable features that we've found. So we can run our UI automation tests and directly create services tests from that, which is really, really helpful. View full review »

Emma says in a Katalon Studio review
QA Engineer at a tech company with 11-50 employees
* Katalon Studio provides the team much flexibility to adapt to various situations to address a problem appropriately. There are certain test cases that can only be tested manually, but Katalon allows the team to automate as many test cases as possible. * The “Debug from here” feature reduces the debugging time considerably. * It produces detailed and useful logs, helping the team to detect a defect’s root causes easily. * It scales well, supporting the execution of large test suites. * It can be used to verify various issues, ranging from minor errors like typos to performance and stability problems of the system.

QaDevelo01dd says in a Worksoft Certify review
QA Developer II at a university with 10,001+ employees
Worksoft Certify provides the ability to develop test scripts with a low bar of entry among automation tools. It’s very simple to develop. However, great care must be taken to use the tool as intended, otherwise efficiencies and effort savings will not be realized. Like all automation projects, well-designed automation, with thoughtful planning and application, is necessary or you will unable to get back the return after spending the cost in investing time and effort with the tool. Worksoft Certify provided outstanding feature support for SAP test automation which is unrivaled by other tools in the market. If implementing and need to automate SAP, first pilot the tool with a representative scenario, and then evaluate that retesting the scenario multiple times will ultimately provide compelling overall value for SAP test automation effort.

LokeshKumar says in a Zeenyx AscentialTest review
Managing Director at MatryxSoft Tech
The feature that we find most valuable is the 'Restricted String', used for objects which have a variable number of items. This helps in selecting the input into the data table because it appears as a dropdown box. Another feature is the Plan creation; it is very easy to create and execute an arbitrary number of similar tests that differ only in the data. View full review »
Santhi George says in a Worksoft Certify review
Testing & Quality Assurance Manager at Johnson Matthey Plc
It is very user-friendly with an appealing UI, unlike a lot of other automation tools that we have evaluated. With sufficient training and adoption of best practices, the tool will certainly help organisations to successfully implement an automated testing framework and eliminate manual testing activities. The fact that it can be used to across SAP and non-SAP applications (including web-based apps like Web Dynpro) is a big advantage for us because we have a variety of SAP and non-SAP applications across the Johnson Matthey IT landscape. Being a 200-year-old organisation, our variety of legacy systems have a lot to benefit from the use of automated testing. Certify has many interesting features, e.g.: 'PRIMO' which is the image recognition functionality is a life saver in instances where Certify standard functionality cannot identify and learn objects within certain legacy applications. Regarding end-to-end testing of packaged applications, Certify is primarily used across our SAP application landscape and the Openlink Endur (commodity trading and risk management system). We hope to realise more benefits by implementing Certify across our wider application landscape over the next few months. We have been using the Capture feature, although not the latest version, the initial version, for process captures was used to create our test designs. It has been a life saver in many instances, without the need to spend any extra effort to create test designs and captures. The test steps get captured in the background which generates an XML file which can be easily imported into Certify, creating the basic test structure which can be improvised/modified to make it a repeatable reusable test. In terms of the amount of time it takes users to create documentation automation using this feature, it is the same amount one would spend to do a manual test. While a person is performing a manual test, Captures are automatically generated in the background. We have used it extensively to build our test designs. View full review »

Senior Test Consultant at a tech services company
Almost all the features are very good. They have unique features: the snapshot technology, and the drag and drop. By using the above two features, you save a lot of time and effort in development and maintenance. There are some more features which are unique, render image and rendertext concept did help us to identify the element uniquely. View full review »
Dylan Goldade says in a CrossBrowserTesting review
QA Analyst / Software QC at Quartzy, Inc
I use the screenshot functionality most frequently and live testing on occasion. I have also used the record and replay functionality once or twice. With screenshots, I can quickly verify a page looks good universally in minutes. It is also shareable to all my coworkers, so reporting issues to engineering are simple. View full review »
Michael Hutchison says in a CrossBrowserTesting review
Web Specialist at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Static screenshots are the feature most often used, because they are a simple method of detecting problems. I can run a page through the screenshot tool, then send a URL with the results to my team. Though it is probably a minor part of what CBT does, I find it the most useful. View full review »

Shatskiy Kirill says in a CrossBrowserTesting review
Javascript Developer at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
At the moment, all our deploys depend on results of automation. If the tests are failing, then we know that something is wrong at the early stages of development. Live testing helps us to debug problems across all browsers. View full review »

Leo Steenbergen says in a Parasoft SOAtest review
Testprofessional at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
* Fast and easy automated tests for UI * Interfaces (SOAP, REST) * Additional database queries * Easy validations on responses (soap, rest, json, sql, Gui) Most valuable for us is the combination of all these items in one solution for us. Broad user story scenario's from A to Z, though a chain of systems, including test data prerequisites. The next most valuable benefit over the past year is the possibility to use the tooling for continuous testing purposes, using the server-side run option 'as a web service' for (nightly) batch runs.

reviewer1202277 says in a SmartBear TestComplete review
Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The most valuable feature is the integration with Azure DevOps. That has been, by far, the best thing for us. We can use it to integrate everything that we are running in the test automation tool, which is linked directly to the test cases. This is the only tool on the marked at actually has this functionality, and it has only come about since 14.2, the latest version. View full review »
Vijay Singh Bhadouriya says in a Katalon Studio review
Business Analyst at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
The Keyword feature is very good to use in your test cases. There are lots of inbuilt Keyword features already there to use, and one can write their own for use in respective test cases. Less Java knowledge is required to write a keyword. This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation. View full review »
reviewer1054392 says in a ReadyAPI review
Testing Tool Expert at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable feature of this solution is SoapUI Pro. It is very friendly to use with the API. ReadyAPI is not just a web service launcher, but a tool that can analyze results, for example from a dashboard, for tests that take a long time. You can see if there is a degradation in the service of the management system. You will not find the coverage provided by ReadyAPI in other tools. The dashboards are very good and consolidate all of the tests that you are performing with the client. View full review »
PP Eijkenboom says in an UFT Pro (LeanFT) review
Senior Test Automation Specialist at APG
The most valuable feature for me is the number of protocols that can be tested. It not only tests Web, but also SAP, Siebel, .Net, and even pdf. That's a strong point of this tool because open source tools like Selenium can run only one protocol, like Web, for example. A lot of legacy systems do not use Web as their front end, however. They use a Windows-built .Net application or something else that is not web-enabled. View full review »
Pieter De Jager says in a Panaya Test Dynamix review
Enterprise Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The features I find most valuable is the fact that you gain the auto recording of the evidence as you execute the test cases from the 15 sites. Secondly, I like the collaboration amongst team members. The third thing I like is sprint feature, which is based on your weekly or bi-weekly sprints where you have all your development or functionalities, and where you want to roll it out in the next few days. It's easy, it's online and you can drag and drop. When I think from a project governance perspective, the fact that you have a place for all your releases, and where you can drill down or add extra attributes to the pages for recording additional information is very valuable. I also like the building workflow that you can customize to your requirements, as well as the inputs and export features on the pages. View full review »
Senior QA Engineer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
We like that we don't need a separate management tool. This is a good feature. It also has an inbuilt performance tool which is on Flash. It has very good record and playback features as well. The inspection tool is also very good. Overall, since it comes with all the three packages, it's very good. It has a very good inbuilt reporting system. View full review »
