We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial investment is probably a little high. It was a little hard for me to sell, but it was a one-shot deal and that's why it's so high. All we are doing now is paying annual maintenance, which we don't have to do if we don't want upgrades, but we do."
"Purchasing and licensing are okay. Go for the perpetual licenses. In that way, you own a license, then you can purchase maintenance and support on top of that, so you don't have to pay every year for it. Even if you don't want it a contract with Worksoft Certify in the future, you will have your own license of it. Then, if your usage is not that much, you can have one or two perpetual licenses. However, if you want to run your processes, you will need more licenses, e.g., using the run-only licenses. They are really cheap compared to the full licensing."
"I can only judge based on the situation that we had around six years ago when we did the tool evaluation. Worksoft was not the cheapest, but it provided the value. For 25 concurrent licenses, we paid more than €400,000, so it was not cheap. In the end, if you see how much time you are saving and compare it with others, its price is okay. We had also compared its cost with the licensing costs for HP and Tricentis, and they were at another level. Now, as we have already booked the licenses, we only have to pay an annual maintenance fee, which is 70%, and that is okay."
"LambdaTest is on the cloud, offers both free and paid plans which start at $19 USD per month."
"This is an affordable product."
"The pricing for LambdaTest is affordable, and one of the reasons we implemented it."
"It is affordable as compared to similar SaaS solutions."
"LambdaTest is priced well, which is why we migrated to it."
"It is free to start, which means you can actually see how it works and then take the decision to buy."
"It is 60% cheaper and there is no fuss in maintaining the lab, so we have more time to do the testing."
