Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.""The recording feature is quite good as it helps us to find out how things are working.""The most valuable feature is the automation of test cases.""The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local.""The most valuable feature is stability.""The cost is the most important factor in this tool.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us."

Cons
"UFT is like a flagship of testing tools, but it's too expensive and people are not using it so much. They should work on their pricing to make themselves more competitive.""The product has shown no development over the past 10 or 15 years.""The support from Micro Focus needs a lot of improvement.""It would be improved by adding a drag-and-drop interface to help alleviate the coding.""Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful.""In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable.""In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure.""With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
