Zeenyx AscentialTest Review

We're able to reuse steps when developing our tests, but the Web Tables and Siebel Tables should be readily available and simpler while automating apps.

What is most valuable?

Reusability of the steps was something that we (our team members) found the most valuable. That helped in saving a lot of time we spend on developing our tests.

How has it helped my organization?

Zeenyx team did provide us with a very reliable support throughout the automation of Siebel as we were unable to find a good automation solution for an older version of Siebel app.

What needs improvement?

It would be better if the support for Web Tables and Siebel Tables are readily available and made more simpler as they are encountered quite often while automating the apps.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 Years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We did not find any issues whatsoever with the deployment of AT on our Windows XP machines and later in Windows 7 as well. The deployment was indeed an hassle-free experience.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The tool is pretty stable and we never encountered any stability issues with the new version of the application.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

With respect to scalability also AT is a reliable option. We had generated a Regression Suite of more than 600 Test Cases and we didnt notice any issues during the execution of the same.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Zeenyx team provides a wonderful customer support for any kind of issues we face and they worked along with us and provided solutions as early as possible too.

Technical Support:

Zeenyx has got a quality tech support team who are always there to help you out. Especially, their support to find out a solution for a complicated scroll table issue in Siebel was outstanding.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In fact we couldnt use another solution previously as we were working on an old version of Siebel that was not been supported by many solutions out there in the market.

How was the initial setup?

Initial set-up was pretty straightforward and also their installtion package comes with all the prerequisites and hence we did not face any problem in the set-up phase.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented through the Zeenyx vendor team itself. And I would rate their level of expertise and the support highly.

What was our ROI?

We had a pretty decent ROI for this venture of investing in AscentialTest. We were able to find out many crucial bugs in our regression tests developed using AscentialTest, which improved the quality of the software decently.

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

The pricing and license cost is decent considering the features we have got from AscentialTest and the support they provide throughout. We are in fact using the Enterprise version of the solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we did evaluate some other options like Routine Boat, EggPlant etc., but we were unable to get a satisfactory solution. Finally we ended upon AscentialTest which proved very helpful.

What other advice do I have?

The scripting time required is less compared to other solutions. In fact not much scripting is required as most of the actions are readily available on the Actions Panel of the solution.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
