The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR.The solution is based on a Windows model, where adding users is just a few clicks. It is easy to manage users and add them.The most valuable feature is the ability to create code from a flow chart, and then run the code through it.We are able to now automate tests, which so far have been manual.GUI testing is the strength of the tool. The tool works as expected, and the support response from eggPlant, as a company, has been quick and substantial.It provides very strong cross-platform support.

Cons
In terms of additional features, it would be helpful to have one package for all testing. You have the manager, the AI, then you have functional, and about 10 different packages for installing.The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement.We found that we had issues regarding the VPN setup, which is one of the reasons that we did not purchase this solution.A step forward would be to have event support, because it is more or less linear at the moment.It has low productivity.
