Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The interface is ok and they have the ability to re-load tests so that you can reuse them.""The dashboards are very good and consolidate all of the tests that you are performing with the client.""The most valuable feature of ReadyAPI is that it is user-friendly.""It has the ability to combine it with different CI/CD tools.""A single platform for functional testing, load testing security, and service actualization."

More ReadyAPI Pros »

"The ease of use is superior to anything on the market. It's very easy to integrate. We've been very impressed with the tool. Because we primarily use the configuration with SAP, the integration is pretty seamless. But we have used our own in-house VB app as well, and it's worked very well with that.""We love the Capture 2.0 feature. It seems to work very well.""The ability to work with the data, with recordsets, and plug those into the scripts is very easy and very powerful. We use it extensively.""It's script-free, which is really important for our end users because we are usually dealing with colleagues who are not developers and who do not always have the technical background of developing and scripting. It's very useful that there is a nice UI and the tool is script-free.""One big advantage of Worksoft Certify is its integration with SAP Solution Manager...""It is very user-friendly with an appealing UI, unlike a lot of other automation tools that we have evaluated. The fact that it can be used to across SAP and non-SAP applications (including web-based apps) is a big advantage. Using Certify Process Capture functionality has helped in hassle free test design creation, without the need to spend any extra effort to capture test steps and screenshots. The integration elements across HPE ALM and Solution Manager also work well.""If we write a new test that's 80 percent the same as an existing test, it is pretty straightforward to reuse the steps from existing tests for our new tests and build upon them.""It is very easy to maintain. With scripts, I can change one line and in one step. Whatever I want, I can do. I don't need to be an expert to use it."

Cons
"I would like to see a better dashboard for monitoring in the next release of this solution.""If ReadyAPI had more integration with all of the big tools on the market then this would be very useful.""Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.""The performance in some cases needs improvement. Sometimes it requires too many resources.""Lacking flexibility of adding more custom verification for security testing."

"In the past, when we've tried to automate some of our web apps, it has not been as robust. If there were one thing that could be improved, it's interaction with web applications. The issue we were running into is that it was harder to identify the objects than it is with some of the other architectured applications.""The definitions for the objects need to be automated. They need to be recognized automatically by Worksoft Certify instead of changing them back and forth manually. This is also something that Worksoft is currently working on.""Our interactions with technical support has not been the best always and there is room for improvement especially with respect to the time taken to respond to cases. However, with the right contacts and reasonable escalations we have always managed to get quick attention on our cases.""One feature that we have been asking for has been to treat tests as code and store the source code for tests in a configuration management tool. Right now, for version control of testing, it's all internally within the tool. If we have a test of a business process and want to revive that test, our methodology now is purely manual work. We go into the tool, create a copy of the existing test, and call the next one: v2. Now, we have two of them and the only way you can tell them apart is by its naming convention.""I would like to see the impact analysis integrated with the performance testing tool. We have multiple tools doing multiple items. I would like to have one common tool.""We are looking for some enhancements on the Capture 2.0 tool. This would give us the ability to control it directly, like we could with Capture 1.0. Right now, Capture 2.0 doesn't really work for our Business Analysts.""There was a change to Capture 2.0. In the end, there have been some challenges with the newer version. Therefore, the company testers, the local ones, do not want to use Capture 2.0.""When it is unstable, there will be times when a test that we are running in Certify will just stop, and it will say, "Aborted." There will be errors. There will be no explanation as to why it happens. It has now happened maybe one out of 20 times. When it happens, I just tell our QA team to stop Certify and restart it, hoping we don't see it again."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a cheap solution when you consider the money that will be saved in testing."

More ReadyAPI Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We would purchase more licenses right now if they were cheaper. Pricing is a little bit of a hindrance.""It is expensive compared to some of the other automation tools in the market. However, the benefits and ROI has proved that it has been a good investment.""The initial upfront cost in terms of licenses, plus all the money that we spent developing tests, has proven it's worth. Now, we can do a regression test suite in ten days as opposed to sixteen weeks.""Our ROI is primarily a reduction in testing time. The testing, when we were doing it manually, was 30 to 40 percent of the project's cost.""We ended up buying too many licenses. They were very good at selling it to us, and probably oversold it a little. We bought 45 licenses and have never used more than twenty. However, they gave us a pretty significant discount on the bigger license, so it made sense for us to buy enough that we wouldn't have to go back and ask for more.""We could use Certify to do robotic process automation, which is basically running a process on your correction system instead of your test system. Therefore, we may do that in the future.""By using automation, it reduced about 75 percent of the time when compared to any other tool.""Saving money and better quality, these are the benefits of Certify."
