Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
There is a cost involved to doing it, but once you get over the initial cost, then you'll start reaping the benefits and seeing that testing is getting done more quickly and efficiently. We are still early on with it, but the expectation and what we're seeing is that we will start seeing some savings coming out on the back-end once we have this done.The price is in line with everyone else's in the market. They are not cheaper nor more expensive than anyone else who was in our RFP.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.The initial investment is probably a little high. It was a little hard for me to sell, but it's a one shot deal and that's why it's so high. All we are doing now is paying annual maintenance, which we don't have to if we don't want upgrades, but we do.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.
