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 is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local.The most valuable feature is the automation of test cases.The recording feature is quite good as it helps us to find out how things are working.The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.The most valuable feature for me is the number of protocols that can be tested. It not only tests Web, but also SAP, Siebel, .Net, and even pdf.One of the important features, which speeds up the automation testing development with LeanFT, is its object repository functions. Object identification are the most time-consuming aspect of building automation tests. LeanFT gives that out of the box. It helps you identify the objects and after that, once you got the object in place, then it's just about building the test scripts. So it reduces your development time significantly.It is a product that can meet regulations of the banking industry.

Cons
It would be improved by adding a drag-and-drop interface to help alleviate the coding.The support from Micro Focus needs a lot of improvement.The product has shown no development over the past 10 or 15 years.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.It's now too heavy and they should be making it faster. We do an attempt at automatic regression testing. We schedule a test to start at a certain time. It takes a lot of time to download the resources and start UFT. Competitors in this area have tools that start faster and run the test faster. For example, if the test at our side will take 10 minutes, another tool will do that in one minute.The parallel execution of the tests needs improvement. When we are running tests in LeanFT, there are some limitations in terms of running the same tests simultaneously across different browsers. If I'm running a test, let's say to log in, I should be able to execute it through IE, through Microsoft Edge, through Chrome, through Mozilla, etc. This capability doesn't exist in LeanFT. Parallel execution of the test cases across different browsers need to be added.It is unstable, expensive, inflexible, and has poor support.

The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of this solution is a little bit high and we are considering moving to another solution.The pricing is quite high compared to the competition.It is quite expensive and is priced per seat or in concurrent (or floating) licenses over a period of months.

Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and while I think that the price is quite reasonable I am not allowed to share those details.
