SmartBear TestComplete Review

Advantages include Name Mapping and finding objects at run time, although it has memory leaks

What is most valuable?

Name Mapping and finding objects at run time. I have no issue because its IDE is simple to use.

How has it helped my organization?

  • License is less expensive than the other products available in the market.
  • I have automated the regression test suite of my company's product.

What needs improvement?

It has memory leaks. I have seven complete test projects, all of them loaded in one project suite. I don't know why memory increases when I just write the code and check-in/out files from the VSTS.

For how long have I used the solution?

For last five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Often crashes with large projects. File check-in takes too much time in TFS.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No idea.

How is customer service and technical support?

Community is very helpful.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I didn't switch from another solution.

How was the initial setup?

I would say straightforward, and really easy to work on TestComplete with its simple IDE.

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

They are changing the licensing structure which is really bad. TestComplete 11 supports all TestComplete modules in one license. TestComplete 12 has separate licenses for each module, Web, Desktop, etc. I hate the new licensing structure.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have no idea.

What other advice do I have?

It's a really good product with minimal issues.
