Cons
For our purposes it requires integration with other products to get out the results in the format we want them. Adding this to the product could improve it.One of the areas the service could be improved would be to have the training in Italian.If there are many queries on the web page, Ranorex will not render the page correctly. I had about 1,000 queries on the page, and the solution was not able to handle it.Binding to other sources is very good but the object recognition in .NET desktop applications often doesn't work.Ranorex is used in Windows while other solutions, for example, Katalon Studio, are cross-platform. (But in my opinion, overall, Ranorex is better).When Ranorex is upgraded, the compatibility with other projects, in version control, in-house or on-premise, fails on occasion. However, overall, the stability is good.

The solution needs more training manuals or some form of online forum for learning. It needs more documentation.The solution needs Mac OS support. Right now, the solution has only been developed to accommodate Windows OS.The artificial intelligence needs to be improved.What is currently missing from this solution is better support for mobile testing.Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover.Increased performance with less memory and CPU usage.
