"The reporting is really nice.""This solution is very easy to learn and any non-programmer or manual tester, with little experience in automation, can pick it up quite easily.""The technical support is good, we were satisfied.""Tricentis Tosca is a really cool tool that you don't have to be technical to use it. Additionally, the solution is easy to use. The modules, libraries, and reusable are in an efficient way to update all the tests. I find it spot on with that. We also started using the design which we switched from Excel. The design was superior to Excel.""The solution has plenty of features compared to other solutions.""It can provide all levels of testing from design to execution to reporting.""We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.""This solution is easy to use for everybody, including those who are not IT-educated."

Cons
"There are some features that Micro Focus LoadRunner provides, but they are not available in IBM Rational Performance Tester. They should include such features. It can also have more reports similar to what HP provides. It might also need some improvement in terms of the tools and support for other technology areas. Certain technologies are not supported by every tool. They need to support all sorts of technologies and platforms on which web applications and mobile applications are built. They need complete support for all sorts of technologies."

"The UI does not have the option of automating the scroll bars.""The user management could improve in Tricentis Tosca because it is confusing. It would be better to have it in one place. Having to add it to the cloud and to a specific project can be a mess.""Many times when we have raised a ticket, we did not get an urgent response.""You need to spend much more time learning the tool and how to use it, compared to others.""Tosca's reporting features could be better. Tricentis had a reporting tool called Analytics, but it didn't function properly after they reworked it. After that, they tried a new approach with key-tracing, and that didn't work.""I have found that some of the functions could be missed in the solution for new users. They are not obviously present.""The main area where there is room for improvement is how they do upgrades. Going through this current upgrade, we were delayed a month because we are using a third-party tool. It's called Tosca Connect by Tasktop. When this latest upgrade broke that relationship between the two, it took Tricentis a month to come back with a workable solution... Their whole upgrade process needs to be better and cleaner, from an end-user standpoint.""It would be of great help if they can fix the loading or performance issues. Sometimes, when I create the test case folder and test cases, it feels like it has loading or performance issues. When passing the objects, we can't sometimes find the exact element. We need to find out that exact location and just give the path for that, and then it works. In the pipeline, when creating Jenkins, we create the list execution for passing the execution list to the commander. I feel it is a bit late, by a fraction of seconds. I first thought it could be my mistake or a setting issue, but I worked on that, and it's not a mistake or a setting issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is much cheaper than Micro Focus LoadRunner. We need perpetual licenses. Support is included in the first sale. After that, you need to renew support every year."

"Tricentis Tosca is an expensive solution and there is an annual license required. The whole licensing process is confusing and it could be made easier.""I am satisfied with the cost.""They are probably more expensive than other comparable tools, but you also get the full suite of testing tools.""I would like to see better costing packs. There are several features but USD $11,000 for one license is expensive.""My understanding is that it's an expensive product, although I don't know the specifics with regards to pricing.""I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to talk about the pricing, but it has some significant costs. For example, you have to pay a license and maintenance fee. Then the rest of the terms are negotiable. We have to consider what we need and what benefit we get from it."
