Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The solution is quite stable.""The load testing, reporting, and scripting features are all valuable features.""I like the user interface. I like the way we can divide our scenarios and can tune them. The integration with the quality center is great. These features are really good.""I think that analytics is very good and that the analytics features are very powerful.""The reporting mechanism is a valuable feature that generates good reports.""The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations.""It has good protocol coverage.""What we like the most is that it integrates with UC."

"The most valuable aspect of the solution is that it covers all types of devices on the market allowing you to test different versions of an operating system.""The most valuable feature is automated testing.""One of the good things about Perfecto is the scalability that it provides.""The reporting feature is really tough to find in some of the other products that are competitors. Having your CITB type dashboard, where we can see the test results and see recordings of each test that passed or failed, is probably one of the distinguishing aspects of Perfecto."

Cons
"I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients.""The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive.""The solution uses a lot of memory and then it dies. It's difficult to work with the solution sometimes when you run a scenario it dies. They need to make the solution lighter somehow.""I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.""The debugging capability should be improved.""The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using.""I would like to see better-licensing costs."

"It would be ideal if there was a complete integration with other test management tools and other applications like HPLM, Micro Focus, or Microsoft Azure.""We have had some issues with performance, which is something that should be improved.""It does well for mobile testing, but when it comes to the web aspect, it is lagging a little bit in terms of execution.""Its performance should be improved. Anything to speed up the user interface would be a great help. We've had a lot of pain with their migration from a product UI that was based on Adobe Flash to the new product that is based on HTML5. Migrations like that seemed to be very painful and not a real smooth process. We're still sort of recovering from that migration from old technology to new, and we haven't got all the functionality ported over that we used to have on the old UI."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive.""LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product.""This is not a cheap product.""There is a licensing cost that is expensive."
