For our purposes it requires integration with other products to get out the results in the format we want them. Adding this to the product could improve it.One of the areas the service could be improved would be to have the training in Italian.If there are many queries on the web page, Ranorex will not render the page correctly. I had about 1,000 queries on the page, and the solution was not able to handle it.Binding to other sources is very good but the object recognition in .NET desktop applications often doesn't work.Ranorex is used in Windows while other solutions, for example, Katalon Studio, are cross-platform. (But in my opinion, overall, Ranorex is better).When Ranorex is upgraded, the compatibility with other projects, in version control, in-house or on-premise, fails on occasion. However, overall, the stability is good.
