We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We don't use technical support. We have an office in Austria that provides us with solutions. Also, this solution is pretty simple and user-friendly. We don't really need help with it.""The program is very stable and scalable.""You can group test cases together and track the execution of them."

More Adaptavist Test Management for Jira Pros »

"If anyone is looking for a good, lightweight, flexible and agile test management product, I think they would do very well with Zephyr Enterprise.""It has many features, but the main things that we need are the test cycles and integration with automation because we have automation for the web and mobile applications. We use it for test case management to run the test cases and get the results. At this moment, it is fulfilling our requirements. We are able to get the test execution report and the test pass and fail report. This summary is delivered to our management."

Cons
"I don't like that you need to use a lot of tabs. One test case takes 15-20 minutes and on Zephyr is take about 5-10 minutes.""Lacking visual gadgets that go on a dashboard, pie charts, bar charts and histograms."

"Creating better default varieties of reporting would make the product much better and more popular.""We have a lot of automation for our products, and we require a utility for its integration with automation. Currently, we have to write this utility ourselves. It would be great if they can provide such a utility."
