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

Pros
Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needsBy using QC we broke down silos (of teams), improved the organization of our tests, have a much better view of the testing status, and became much quicker in providing test results with document generation.The enhanced dashboards capabilities are useful for senior management to view the progress of releases under the portfolio in one go and also drill down to the graphs.By standardizing our template, we publish reports at the business unit level.I like the traceability, especially between requirements, testing, and defects.You can do your development from start to finish: starting with the requirements, ending with defects, and testing in-between.You can plan ahead with all the requirements and the test lab set it up as a library, then go do multiple testing times, recording the default that's in the system.Cross project customization through template really helps to maintain standards with respect to fields, workflows throughout the available projects.

The most valuable features are the reporting in the dashboard and the general way in which we can create test runs is helpful.Integration with Confluence and JIRA.The API to support integration of the homemade automated testing tool.Reliable and stable. It is important that TestRail be up and running 24/7 as we have users around the world using it.You don't need to follow complex procedures to create a test run, test case, etc.The ability to time test runs gives the tester the ability to compare calculated times to actual times it takes for a test case to run.Most valuable features are the ease of organizing test cases and a great API for sending results from automated test run results into the database.

Cons
The BPT also known as Business Process Testing can sometimes be very time intensive and sometimes might not be very intuitive to someone who is not familiar with BPT.We would like to have support for agile development.I would rate it a 10 if it had the template functionality on the web side, had better interfaces between other applications, so that we didn't have dual data entry or have to set up our own migrations.The downside is that the Quality Center's only been available on Windows for years, but not on Mac.It is nice, but it does have some weaknesses. It's a bit hard to go back and change the requirement tool after setup.Defect ageing reports need to be included as built-in.

It would be useful if it had its own issue management system. At the moment, it's purely a test management tool and you have to link to a defect management tool, like JIRA. It would be useful if there was an option to use its own defect management tool so that it's integrated and not two separate tools.Better prediction of text.The TestRail API to integrate reporting of automated tests is complete, but requires many requests to identify the appropriate entry.There are a number of improvements that have been requested. While I don't have a list of these requests available, many can be found on Gurock's forum.It would be nice if they would add an export to Word.It would be nice to have a description section when creating the test scenario itself so I can indicate what the configuration should be.Reporting could be more flexible regarding repeating reports.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive.I feel that the licenses are expensive. ‚ÄčIt has several limitations in adapting its agility easily.

Pricing for small teams seems correct with respect to competitors.Negotiate the best deal you can.My advice to others is to shop around for the best deal. Some options out there are free in cyberspace.Use TestRail Cloud (online TR hosted server) and don't worry about maintenance or scalability. It saves a lot of cash and time.
