Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a cost involved to doing it, but once you get over the initial cost, then you'll start reaping the benefits and seeing that testing is getting done more quickly and efficiently. We are still early on with it, but the expectation and what we're seeing is that we will start seeing some savings coming out on the back-end once we have this done.""The price is in line with everyone else's in the market. They are not cheaper nor more expensive than anyone else who was in our RFP.""The initial investment is probably a little high. It was a little hard for me to sell, but it was a one-shot deal and that's why it's so high. All we are doing now is paying annual maintenance, which we don't have to do if we don't want upgrades, but we do.""Purchasing and licensing are okay. Go for the perpetual licenses. In that way, you own a license, then you can purchase maintenance and support on top of that, so you don't have to pay every year for it. Even if you don't want it a contract with Worksoft Certify in the future, you will have your own license of it. Then, if your usage is not that much, you can have one or two perpetual licenses. However, if you want to run your processes, you will need more licenses, e.g., using the run-only licenses. They are really cheap compared to the full licensing."

"Licensing is good but the prices for the products are expensive. A single-user license may go for something like $10,000 to $30,000. There are no additional costs, and support is included within that price."

A complete platform for application quality management Qualify AQM comes with fully configurable data stores, workflows, electronic signature, security, dashboards, and reporting.

Every member of the quality process from management, through development and QA, to end users can share in the quality process, allowing real-time decision making and driving predictability. Your team can focus on delivery rather than infrastructure and tools.

Desktop, Tablet & Phone

Qualify is available as a desktop application and as a web application optimized for desktop browsers and tablets. Note that some advanced capabilities are only available in the desktop version.

Multiple Methodologies

Qualify is shipped with several predefined application models that can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition, you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. You can map agile, waterfall, or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Information Portal

In addition to the data stored within Qualify it can also display and link to data held within point solutions such as Microsoft TFS and JIRA to give a single integrated view of corporate data. That consolidated information can then be analyzed, graphed, and reported.

Communication Backbone

Qualify allows you to create and manage your quality plans and as importantly acts as the communication backbone letting every team member share in the progress and status. In addition to the on-line access, automatic and manual alerts can be generated which are distributed via email.

Workflows

It is essential that key steps in your quality processes are controlled and can only be passed by the appropriate users. Qualify provides all this and more, enabling rules to be set as to the critical data that must be stored at each step in the process combined with a complete audit trail.

Resource Management

Planning your medium and short-term resourcing needs can be complex but Qualify provides a powerful view of your work in progress, (optionally including time-sheet data), allocated tasks, and forward projects – highlighting areas of potential contention and endangered dead-lines so that you can balance and re-assign your resources as needed.

Totally Configurable

Qualify comes with a number of pre-defined application models that can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition, you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. Map agile, waterfall or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Full Security

A role-based security model is a fundamental part of Qualify with a full range of accumulated permissions. Integration with LDAP is fully supported so existing user data can be simply extended.

Easy Data Import

For customers moving to Qualify from spreadsheets and documents or legacy test management products such as QC/ALM, we provide a powerful data import capability that minimizes the data conversion process.
