Quotes From Members

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

Pros
When developing new pages that have questionable functionality or coding, we will often use CBT to test it in a browser. CBT works with our testing environment and development site.I can run a page through the screenshot tool, then send a URL with the results to my team.Record and Replay is the most used functionality for us, as we can record the test cases and play them on multiple combinations of platforms.This solution helps lower the overhead cost associated with buying multiple devices.The screen shot portal is essential for an easy way to run tests across hundreds of browsers and retrieve screenshots which then indicate success or failure.I am able to continuously test my new releases across browser versions without issues.The ability to choose from many devices is the best feature.SmartBear has excellent, informative webinars, so keep an eye out for those.

Cons
The screenshot tool defaults to a screen layout instead of a full page test. I find it a bit cumbersome that I can't have it run a full screenshot as my default.It would be useful if we can run the live-testing test cases on multiple platforms at the same time, instead of waiting for one session to finish.I have had quite a few issues trying to use a virtual machine to test our application on.Sometimes, some of their instances fail, particularly in older versions of browsers.Sometimes the testing is slow.The speed connection in mobile devices could be improved, because sometimes the load time is uncertain.A problem that we are facing quite often is related to the network connection. Tests can fail if the remote CrossBrowserTesting's VM has connection problems. This happens mostly with browsers of Internet Explorer family which work on Windows OS.The "Getting Started" documentation for Selenium testing could be improved.

The ability to configure the memory and CPU for the test machines should be included.The ability to install profiles on iOS real mobile devices should be included.Progress towards reducing application testing time can be made.Lacks the ability to start multiple tests simultaneously.Integration with Github, as well as several other similar tools, could be improved.An image comparison would be a nice feature to include in the Sauce Labs product.Sometimes pasting text while using "text object" does not seem to work, and it slows down testing times quite a bit.It should provide more examples of script code.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is worth the pricing as the product is supported on multiple platforms and browsers.CrossBrowserTesting offered the best value for its price.The lowest price point is very reasonable. It is also useful if only one person in the company needs to check on the browser display.A few intermediary pricing options for small QA teams would be nice, e.g., unlimited screenshots, "as you need it" parallel tests, etc.

​Now that we have an enterprise license, we no longer have to worry about minutes each month!​Compared with other services, Sauce Labs is a bit expensive.When you reach the Enterprise licensing tier, base level being with 10 concurrent test sessions, pricing is essentially per-unit-of-concurrency thereafter with a relatively linear increase and not much benefit for "bulk".Trial the product and see if it suits your needs.
