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

Pros
"We don't have a big team of people that can watch the dials and check that everything is okay. We're doing a lot of the monitoring of our website and our product at the side of the desk. We need a solution that does a lot for us, and that's what Eggplant does.""We find the solution stable and scalable."

"The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight.""The debugging capability should be improved.""We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market.""The solution uses a lot of memory and then it dies. It's difficult to work with the solution sometimes when you run a scenario it dies. They need to make the solution lighter somehow.""Licensing costs could be reduced.""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using.""I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.""I would like to see better-licensing costs."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Eggplant came out as the most competitive in terms of commercials (terms and conditions) which was positive. When we did the initial negotiations, Eggplant started at a price but they were open to negotiations and we did negotiate a discount. That was really important to us because it showed a level of commitment to us."

"This is not a cheap product.""There is a licensing cost that is expensive.""The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product.""It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive."
