We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation.The functionality of the data is very good. You can upload and disperse data using the solution.We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which is very handy.We are now performing automated testing in 15 minutes, which were previously taking a long time when doing it manually.I personally like the 'Object Spy' feature of this tool. It makes it easy to find an element on the web page.The best feature is the split up between test cases and the test object. This allows us to easily change an error.It provides us daily feedback on the status (failing/working) of the core features of our websites.Video capture on failure is a must have. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand pictures (literally).

Cons
My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version.Katalon doesn't support testing of hybrid applications. It's a limitation.The Object Spy is rather frustrating to work with, so I tend not to use it.It should start working on Silverlight automation.Support options need improvement. It is sometimes hard to find a solution to any given problem, thus you are forced to use another solution.Object Spy is brittle. When I try to capture objects, I have to proceed multiple times before it works.

The ability to configure the memory and CPU for the test machines should be included.The ability to install profiles on iOS real mobile devices should be included.Progress towards reducing application testing time can be made.Lacks the ability to start multiple tests simultaneously.Integration with Github, as well as several other similar tools, could be improved.An image comparison would be a nice feature to include in the Sauce Labs product.Sometimes pasting text while using "text object" does not seem to work, and it slows down testing times quite a bit.It should provide more examples of script code.

​Now that we have an enterprise license, we no longer have to worry about minutes each month!​Compared with other services, Sauce Labs is a bit expensive.When you reach the Enterprise licensing tier, base level being with 10 concurrent test sessions, pricing is essentially per-unit-of-concurrency thereafter with a relatively linear increase and not much benefit for "bulk".
