Ranorex Studio Review

We can now perform automatic testing of a web solution every night and after every deployment, but it needs more possibilities on mobile devices.


Valuable Features

  • Easy to use - without any dev skills you can automate some nice things
  • C# or VB.NET is used for development, and you can find a lot of information online
  • Fast email support and a forum with several experienced users and Ranorex employees on it
  • Online webinars to help you get started
  • We can combine Ranorex with Jenkins and JIRA. We can store our test results in a database, configure our email templates, and create libraries so we can easily reuse code.

Improvements to My Organization

  • Automatic testing of a web solution every night and after every deployment
  • Every morning we get a test status of our different brands. We've created status pages that read the test status from a database, so we get a clear overview of all the tests that have been running at night or after each deployment
  • Everybody have access to our status pages and can have a look of the status of a specific test

Room for Improvement

More possibilities on mobile devices, as we have already encountered some problems with iFrames integrated in a web page.

Use of Solution

We bought this solution more than a year ago, in March 2014.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's at a high level, as we always get a clear and fast answer. There’s also a lot of activity on the Ranorex forum.

Initial Setup

Setup and installation was straightforward. If you watch the online webinars, you can easily start with recording test steps. If you have previous experience with C# or VB.NET in visual studios, you won’t have any problems developing in Ranorex. Otherwise, you can find a lot of information online how to expand your recorded modules with additional code.

Implementation Team

We did the implementation by ourselves, it was not that difficult to install and add the license key.

ROI

Previously, we had to check and test every night the same test sets, and after every deployment a basic check of several test cases was needed. To do that, we needed a full time person to do that. Now, we can focus on new functionalities after each deployment.

Other Solutions Considered

We did some tests with Selenium, but you still need a lot of dev skills to setup and write an automated test.

Other Advice

Try the free trial and have a look at the several demo videos.
