With autotesting, we have been able to eliminate duplication of test cases across those four areas. This has helped us knock down our number of test cases. Our test cases are also running more optimally. Therefore, it has very much helped in that sense, so we were able to eliminate a lot of test cases and get out of manual silos by running on autotesting, which is more efficient.It is a pretty easy tool to use as far as automated testing tools go.We are now trying to automate all our applications: SAP, web, third-party, and legacy. Instead of multiple tools, we have been able to have Worksoft handle a lot of our applications. This has saved us a lot of time and effort.People who don't have coding knowledge are capable of doing automation with Certify. It reduces coding and scripting dependencies.Our business users are doing regression testing as their day job. This is an add-on to their daily work. With everything so pressured in the industry, automation takes the pressure of these users.It helps us to implement automation testing as part of most projects, so the need for manual testing can be reduced. This really accelerates the testing process as a whole. Before, where it could take ten days to test a project, now it takes only one or two days to do the complete testing.Worksoft has helped us position our company better because the product lets us show our value in terms of the benefits that we bring.Mostly in the area of project testing, the most immediate benefit is when you historically have manual testers do a certain job, and a full regression testing was previously done 100 percent manually. We have had cases where the release testing for an entire region would take around 12 weeks. With Worksoft, we are now down to two to three weeks. So, that is one use case where we have had success.

It would be great if our business testers could develop their own automated test cases. With every release you do, you have to go back and touch your old test cases and bring them up to speed, or develop new test cases. In the beginning, that is a challenge because you have to have someone who is certified in the tool to help you develop these test cases.Technical support's first response to us is usually late.Web UI testing was difficult in the beginning, as we had a homegrown product, and we had to do the proper object naming.One feature that could be added to Capture 2.0 is generating a PDF file from your capture, so you can see your screenshots and steps.The updates for SAP Fiori have been great, where previously we saw a lot of issues. A year ago, it used to fail miserably.There have been some previous security concerns with the way that Capture has worked. When you turn it on, you don't know what it's capturing. This has raised some concerns in the past, especially in our European regions.The stability needs help. This is main thing that needs help, and if it's not the stability, then it's Worksoft's ability to respond to issues.The technical support comes on, and says, "Oh, so-and-so link is here, go through that link, and make the modifications." I'm not comfortable in making those changes. I want to schedule a call, share my screen, and have them fix it for me.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
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.We no longer need ten people sitting and manually testing something. We can just have one person running the entire regression automation testing suite, and this has saved us dollars.The license cost is quite high. This might not be a consideration for a large company, but it will be for a small company. E.g., Tricentis (their competitor) offers certain exclusive use cases where a company can use it in a certain way, so this is another option that companies consider.Automating our manual processes has saved us 70 to 80 percent in time.We saved $1.3 million using Worksoft Certify in 2017.Cost-wise, compared with other tools, it is a great product.This solution has enabled our clients to automate and save time (approximately 40 to 50 percent).
