The most valuable feature is the RFT because it allows us to automate manual test cases.Integration with the other professional tools is a very strong advantage, so that we can have a traceability between the requirements and defects in Rational Team Concert. That's the most important aspect.It's very reliable as a solution.

It’s been really easy to automate the same application TestComplete struggled with. I have been able to automate two of our key applications in just a few months. I haven’t even taken their training.The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice.

Cons
Adding support for uploading a collection of test cases would be a helpful addition.I think it's fine from a performance perspective but usability is something that needs improvement.Currently, the user interface needs to be more user-friendly.

The only thing I can't wait for is for Zeenyx to add automating Mobile apps.Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.I would like to see an improvement in the User Interface.
