We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The license price for a physical machine is cheap, and for virtual machine, it is very expensive.Our ROI is about $10,000 a year.TestComplete now have come up with three modules (Web, Desktop & Mobile), so based on the type of product for automation, it is adequate to purchase the required module.Buy modules on demand. If you have a four-person team and they will each automate tests only 25% of the time, it's better to buy a floating licence and share the tool during the work day.The price is less, compared to other products, such as QTP.My advice so far, is that while it’s not quite as powerful and easy to use as UFT, its price tag more than makes up for it.The product is becoming more and more expensive.
