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.

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.

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 scalable, but it is a matter of money in the pocket. You can scale it, but then you have to have additional licenses. The licensing approach of eggPlant is not the best.

​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".
