Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Worksoft Certify Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is quite expensive and is priced per seat or in concurrent (or floating) licenses over a period of months.""The pricing is quite high compared to the competition.""The cost of this solution is a little bit high and we are considering moving to another solution.""When we compare in the market with other tools that have similar features, it may be a little bit extra, but the cost is ten times less.""It is cheap, but if you take the enterprise license, it is valid for both software items.""It's more than $10,000 per floating license. That's a yearly cost.""The licensing is very expensive, so often, we don't have enough VMs to run all of our tests.""Its cost is a bit high. From the licensing perspective, I am using a concurrent license. It is not a seed license. It is something that I can use in our network. It can also be used by other users."

TestDrive, the only truly code-free test automation tool in the world. Test 4X faster end-to-end across all applications
 All significant application vendors, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and Salesforce, have moved or are in the process of moving their user interfaces to the browser. 

TestDrive not only tests browsers but also client/server and legacy applications, all without the need for high cost, specialized automation engineers.

TestDrive’s unique ability to check every element of every screen makes it the only viable way to run a full regression test.

Result: higher-quality applications, delivered to the market in a shorter period of time.

100% code-free- no need for programming skills Playback timing, screenshots, analysis of all the visible and invisible screen elements are all handled automatically by TestDrive which lets you concentrate on the testing!

A.I. Object recognition & simplification-Your view of the application content is not cluttered with irrelevant components You see only the items you are interested in, and hence it is simple to identify what you have, what you can interact with and what properties you want to validate. Without this, it would be impossible to understand the real content of each web page.

Human vision annotation Patented user annotation thinks like a user does

Automatic synchronization Including over single page web apps (BusySense) You do not have to worry about varying response times for the application, nor do you have to code ‘timing loops’ to check if the application is in the right state. Synchronization errors are simply something we do not get, and you don’t have to worry about them.

Easy script maintenance Self -healing minimizes maintenance Script maintenance is probably the biggest reason for automation projects to fail; it becomes harder to fix the scripts before you can use them than to test manually. When changes are needed, perhaps because of some new input, self-healing takes you through inserting the new input or action while the script runs and adapts to the latest version. At the end of a test, you can designate the results as a new baseline. Maintenance virtually disappears and the biggest killer of automation along with it.

One script, many browsers Record over Chrome, playback over Firefox etc.
You can quickly test in different environments and configurations with no extra work to be sure of browser compatibility. TestDrive will run seamlessly across every browser enabling cross-browser testing at the click of a button, without the need to re-create. This is even true of the previously difficult to automate, single page ‘Ajax’ applications.

Out-of-the- box full regression testing.
Most testing tools have validation based solely on ‘assertions. Meaning you specify what you want to check; a technique which is great for some situations. But that alone is a bit like asking one of the children to feed the cat they do, and later you find the dog was dead which they did not mention. Testing tools can be as pedantic! But not TestDrive, it will check all the essential data at the same time. What is different, moved, gone, appeared – all things you cannot easily define a check for and hence will catch you out if you do not know about them. This is grown-up regression testing.

Checking rules Automated Testing.
Indeed, when you run an automated test, you will have some specific objectives to validate, probably expressed as an assertion. But it also makes sense to check other things simultaneously, and checking rules enable you to do this automatically. The user can select which checking rules are to be verified as an automated test executes. These include base-line comparisons, specific content, spell-checks, link checks, hardware impact checks and performance checks. It saves you time, takes little set-up and expands the coverage and purpose of a test, to trap more errors.
Data driven Expanded coverage with variable data.
Data-driven tests are fundamental to expanding test coverage. Use spreadsheet-style data to drive inputs, to act as values to verify against and even update columns so that the values can be used later in the test. It is a simple drag and drop process to match the columns to the inputs on the screen. It could not be easier and no sign of anything like coding!

Modular playlists Optimizing re-use
Uniquely TestDrive separates instructions on how to navigate an application from the logic, tests, da-ta drivers and success criteria. If the application under test changes significantly and the navigation has to be replaced, it ensures that the business logic survives. This means fewer scripts to maintain as the modular scripts are reused and repurposed in the Playlist that drives each scenario.

Multiple applications? End-to-end testing?
Most organizations have many applications that run the business and hence carry out end-to-end testing, which must be done across multiple applications (integrated or otherwise). A single test can embrace multiple applications and technologies enabling you to have a complete end to end scenarios and check each step in a business process along the way whether cloud, browser, green screen, Windows GUI, Java, SAP, Salesforce or anything. One solution, for all your application testing
