What is most valuable?

* The availability of the support. * The internet presentation: If there are any questions, most of the questions can be answered with the web presentation and documentation. * The strength of the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to now automate tests, which so far have been manual. Now, it is possible to automate them.

What needs improvement?

A step forward would be to have event support; supporting different events. At the moment, it is more or less linear. We write the code, but from the tool, we do not have support of events in the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we used C# based implementation. The reason that we changed was the instability and inflexibility of the tool. If the system on the test has improved and developed, then we needed a test… more»

What other advice do I have?

You should be very clear about what your goals are. If you have this, then check the fit and the match. Afterwards, have a trial period and again check how the tool fits. When discussing eggPlant, it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate another US vendor, but I have forgotten their name. They reused something which were the property rights on eggPlant's site, which is why we did not select them.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR. We're also using the API now. we also made a POC for the Selenium WebDriver. When comparing with other tools, the clear advantage of eggplant is that it is system independent.

What needs improvement?

When you have release branches and you make feature branches then you can commit. But you cannot make a push, that can only be done on the master and it's not very compatible. It can also be difficult if you write a lot of scripts and have some images. If you change the name of one of the images… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used to use UFT but not anymore, because we have a lot of legacy applications, and we use a lot of different systems that are dependent on each other and because we are independent from where the system hooks up.

What other advice do I have?

The product isn't pre-installed. We use xCloud. It really is a very good product, very cool. I would rate the product a nine out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The OCR (Optical Character Cognition) is a very useful feature. It mirrors your phone or your device system. The scripting is nice and easy to use. The use of the tool is great. You can recreate scripts as well. It can generate scripts based on your actions from the screen.

What needs improvement?

The setup process is quite lengthy. There's a lot of dependencies. Parts of it need to be centralized. The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement.

What other advice do I have?

Implementation depends on a lot of factors, but you do need a team that has technical knowledge of the tool. There's a lot of configuration involved when you set up the solution. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. I am not a fan because of the reporting functionality and the difficulty in configuring the solution.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to create code from a flow chart, and then run the code through it.

What needs improvement?

We found that we had issues regarding the VPN setup, which is one of the reasons that we did not purchase this solution. We found that the interface is not user-friendly. We were not able to write code as fast as with the competing… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before trying Eggplant.
