Ranorex Studio Review

A flexible and stable automation tool that provides a powerful code conversion option


What is our primary use case?

We use Ranorex for automating the testing of the GUI components in our applications.

What is most valuable?

Code Conversion is one of the great features because sometimes, the automation tool doesn't have the capability of maneuvering around two specific evaluations. Using the code conversion option means that you can easily write the code the way you want.

What needs improvement?

The object detection functionality needs to be improved.  We have found that when you are selecting objects by moving the mouse, and then the position of these objects change in the newer versions of the application, the test tool fails to correctly identify them.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Ranorex for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is fine and we have had no problem with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't had any problems in terms of scalability. We have more than five people using it, and their roles range from developer to management.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have been in contact with technical support and they are responsive. It is fair to say that they have resolved our issues quickly.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

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

The licensing fees depend on the number of users.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When we started using this tool a few years ago, we had finished an evaluation where Ranorex was the winner in terms of capability.

We will be working on new products and we are in the process of looking at more test automation tools. Right now, we are investigating Telerik Test Studio to see if it has more capability than Ranorex.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Ranorex is that it is a powerful tool, it is far-reaching, and it works as advertised. In my opinion, it is one of the best tools available in the market.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
