It’s been really easy to automate the same application TestComplete struggled with. I have been able to automate two of our key applications in just a few months. I haven’t even taken their training.The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice.

Cons
The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.Everything is very manual. It's up to us to find out exactly what the issues are.The solution has a lack of compatibility with newer technologies.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.

The only thing I can't wait for is for Zeenyx to add automating Mobile apps.Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.I would like to see an improvement in the User Interface.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

Once it starts generating ROI, which for us took between three and six months, one will not even think about the investment.
