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 basic framework and project organization is very good.""This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.""The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds.""It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options.""One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements.""The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality."

"If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice.""The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.""It’s been really easy to automate the same application TestComplete struggled with.

Cons
"My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version.""We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.""It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved.""Now we are having difficulties in using it and had to limit our automation experts to the features that Katalon allows us to use for free. It was free access and they claimed that it would be free for all time.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all."

More Katalon Studio Cons »

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