What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature was that it was very easy to connect to our web-application without much additional configuration. So we could do very quick checks to get fast feedback.

How has it helped my organization?

It helped us a lot to accomplish our testing related goals and helped to provide better service to our customer, but I don’t think that it changed our organization functioning that much.

What needs improvement?

I would like application performance improvement to be better as, for me, it looked a bit slow. For example, loading one page sometime took 10-15 seconds.

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

This was done by my colleague, I just got a user account from him.

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

This was recommended and tried first by my colleague. I may have used some different solutions previously but I don’t recall them.

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

The product support for different OS and mobile devices is awesome. Most importantly, it has support for Automation of web application designed with Selenium and Java. With few configuration set up , we can able to execute automation scripts without any difficulty.

How has it helped my organization?

The real challenges I noticed when I ran few tests with Test NG : * Unable to see the remote view while testing on real iOS devices - when we run the automation scripts, we do not see the real… more»

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

I like the resolution of virtual browsers. Also running Javascript for autorun speed is superb.

How has it helped my organization?

As per my experience, we are not suppose to bound our product with particular devices/OS. BrowserStack makes it possible to verify my product in all latest devices and different OS.

What needs improvement?

I used it for a week an half. As I used it for compatibility testing only. I used it for mobile browsers as well as desktop browsers for different OS.

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

I had some other options for cross browser testing, but I found this product easy to use.

What other advice do I have?

For UI testing it is easy to use. But for automation perspective, configuration is lil bit confusing for the first time user. They are doing great job by maintaining the performance of this product.
