Our automation engineers can create tests more easily, but the code editor gives poorly formatted code.
Find out what your peers are saying about SmartBear TestComplete vs. Tricentis Tosca and other solutions. Updated: January 2019.
317,758 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The database checkpoints detect problems which are difficult for a human resource to find.
Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional.
Test items, project variables helps in managing automation suite and scheduling execution.
It's cross platform automation capabilities specially ranging across web, UNIX (via putty), and other systems.
The ability to run a whole suite of tests automatically (which we did overnight).
TestComplete fits almost perfectly with a large amount of stacks, such as Delphi, C#, Java and web applications.
Runs in different remote machines. We have multiple versions of the software being tested.
Compared to other tools we have been looking at, you don't have to be a programmer to operate it, though it helps. It also a product that can be used by business people.
We are satisfied with the support of Tricentis.
We have multiple applications, and it supports parallel execution. It has mobile automation.
Multiple scanning engines to automate many different applications.
Object Identification Wizard.
Image recognition: It has allowed us to automate a GUI section of our product which involves drawing different topologies.
Good use in Agile workshops, where the person needs to conceptualize the tests before the developer provides the complete application interface.
The tool can be handled without any knowledge in parameterisation, especially the TestCaseDesign which makes the tool mighty and stable.
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.
Error handling features in the tool are a little limited.
The code editor, though following eclipse-style, is still a work in progress and gives a very poorly formatted code once viewed via other editing tools.
We were testing handheld barcode scanners running WindowsCE with many menus of warehouse functions, and our biggest problem was the timing between input and responses.
TestComplete gives support to do requests to a SOAP web service but has no support to do HTTP requests on Restful services.
Product is not stable enough and it crashes often.
Setup wasn't that straightforward; it was more complex. It all depends on the environment, because there were a lot of errors on our applications. Therefore, it wasn't an easy setup for us.
It needs better integration with JIRA.
I would like a better user interface.
Making it more stable would be good because we get around 90% stability.
The reporting function was lacking in usability and detail.
Security, UI, and basic performance improvements could be done to the product to enhance its use.
Running the regression – if multiple lists are executed at once or if a list contains 200+ tests, it’s a pain to stop the execution.
Might have a learning curve, as it does not follow the traditional Record-Play functionality, but tests have to be built from requirements or Agile story cards.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The license price for a physical machine is cheap, and for virtual machine, it is very expensive.
Our ROI is about $10,000 a year.
TestComplete now have come up with three modules (Web, Desktop & Mobile), so based on the type of product for automation, it is adequate to purchase the required module.
Buy modules on demand. If you have a four-person team and they will each automate tests only 25% of the time, it's better to buy a floating licence and share the tool during the work day.
The price is less, compared to other products, such as QTP.
My advice so far, is that while it’s not quite as powerful and easy to use as UFT, its price tag more than makes up for it.
The product is becoming more and more expensive.
We hired a consultant to figure out all the tools in our company and how they fit in our company before we purchased the solution.
The pricing is high, but altogether it offers you the ability to automate all sorts of applications: desktop, web, mobile, etc.
Expensive, but for long-term projects, it is paying back.
It is an expensive tool compared to other test automation tools. It has a lot of advantages over other tools.
