The tool can be handled without any knowledge in parameterisation, especially the TestCaseDesign which makes the tool mighty and stable - even when releases in the tested software are subjected to deep code changes. The maintenance of the test tool is manageble. View full review »

QA Developer II at a university with 10,001+ employees
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 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. Certify provided outstanding feature support for SAP test automation which is unrivaled by other tools in the market. If implement SAP and need to automate, first pilot the tool with a representative scenario and then evaluate that retesting the scenario multiple times will provide compelling overall value for SAP test automation.

Senior Programmer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Our web site is dynamically generated to each user, so much so that the only testing solution we found was AscentialTest. The unique ability to take a snapshot of a form, have controls on that page dynamically recognized, combined with being able to store all our form variables in a SQL database helped us automate repeatable testing.

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 »

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 »

The record and play feature is very useful. It helps in quickly creating and rerunning tests on different combinations of OS/browsers/mobile platforms. This helps to ensure nothing regressed on any particular platform. View full review »
Samuel Iovuta says in a Tricentis Tosca review
Test Manager with 10,001+ employees
Image recognition: It has allowed us to automate a GUI section of our product which involves drawing different topologies. I’m aware that other tools have this feature, but the whole test suite, it makes it good enough for us not to look for something else. View full review »
Kanika Gupta says in a Selenium HQ review
QA Expert at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Selenium WebDriver and Selenium IDE are useful. Selenium IDE is able to record and playback. It was useful for me when I did not know coding. Selenium WebDriver has got packages which help in automating test cases. The best part of Selenium WebDriver is that it supports multiple web browsers, thus, helping in cross-browser testing. It is free to use and is not limited to any scripting language. View full review »

Seniora134 says in a Tricentis Tosca review
Senior at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Below are the features that are the most valuable in regards to this product: * With one click, it will scan all the elements on the screen, so that the user can select the required elements for automation tests. * Exploratory testing gives an option to record a video, has interactive steps to capture a manual test case flow, and it can be converted to a PDF document with links for the video. * Using exploratory testing, we can send an email to record manual test cases to the business analysts (BAs) who never need a product to be installed in their machine. The recorded files can be stored on a common server (that needs to be set up separately) or they can send those files to the intended automation team via emails. * Not much in the way of programming skills is required to use this product.

RobBlack says in a SoapUI Pro review
Enterprise Software Quality Architect at a tech vendor with 5,001-10,000 employees
I found the REST Discovery and Groovy scripting features to be most valuable. Additionally, the Simple programming model enables a wide audience (in contrast to Java or JavaScript). The XML format makes it easy for scripts to analyze the test base (metrics, bulk simple changes). View full review »

RobMiller says in a Worksoft Certify review
Worksoft Certify Test Automation Architect, Developer, Trainer at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Parameter-driven action steps (no programming): Able to interact with all application objects, as well as execute all logical, mathematical and text manipulations, with clearly defined parameter-driven action steps. These features, and the basic structure and framework, eliminate the confusion of building a framework for every test. The framework is inherent with Certify. Certify is built on a database where all components are indexed for easy usability and reusability. This concept is difficult to manage with most other tools where tests and components of tests are very possibly on different servers, workstations, and folders. Process and data RecordSet coupling feature: You can import lengthy spreadsheets and, with the framework of Certify, then extract only test data needed by attaching that one imported spreadsheet RecordSet to your executable process and, with just one action step in the process, write to the RecordSet, and build only the test data you need. This feature of a Certify process does automatically read and process the next row of data in the spreadsheet RecordSet without any programming. And the feature of a Write action will write all the variables associated with a RecordSet with just one write action step. Point and click on application objects will automatically create an action step referencing the Object's Attributes and with a variety of actions automatically promoted for selection based on your application object type. This means minimal guess work on how to interact with an object. Easy transition during execution between application development disciplines. Go to SAP, Web, Java, mainframe, or any discipline, all in the same test execution. Easy interaction with DOS files during execution. View full review »

Jonathon Wright says in an UFT Pro (LeanFT) review
Director Testing & Quality Assurance at Automation Development Services
I work a lot with guys who work with meta-mathematics, like applied maths and quantum mathematics. So for us, the most important feature is the ability to handle complex algorithms, such as fuzzy logic techniques which is the first step towards artificial intelligence in our field. The support for containerisation and continuous learning, adapting to our needs like support for DevOps practices, is paramount in our work. View full review »
