What is most valuable?

The solution's real-time integration with JIRA is seamless. With ALM or QC, we had an additional plugin which was a schedule-based integration between the tool and JIRA… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our company's workflow starts in JIRA. We create epics, stories, bugs, etc. All of those things are integrated within qTest. There was a disconnect before, with the… more»

What needs improvement?

We are starting to use qTest Insights a little bit. Right now, on a scale of one to five, I would say the Insights reporting engine is a three because we are facing some… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I believe we have an annual subscription.

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

We used to have Micro Focus ALM Quality Center as our test management tool and we were nearing our licensing limitation at the time. We evaluated a couple of tools in the… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's a simple tool. The usability is pretty straightforward. For a QA tester who is an active user, the UI is pretty simple, the linkage of requirements to test case is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated QASymphony and QMetry. To begin with, we had a list of about ten tools that researched on the internet and via some phone calls. We narrowed it down to these… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the flexibility, ease of use for writing new test cases, the test plans, and the composition.

How has it helped my organization?

It was very easy to create a quick test plan, despite the challenges we face, like a lack of documentation and the lesser knowledge we have for testing. We were testing a… more»

What needs improvement?

It's not easy to create a custom report. It's not straightforward. A good improvement would be if there was a way to report and create a custom report without using a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We purchased a license for two years. The license is on an annual basis. We got a nice discount for the second year, around 10%, which is nice. It's priced annually and… more»

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

We previously used HP Quality Center for the last eight years. We switched to TestRail because it is more flexible and cost-effective. The price is very competitive, and… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to consider is that TestRail does not have a defect management policy. They would have to use another tool for defect… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at TestLink in open source, and we looked at ALM. The functionality and the usage, and usability of TestRail is much better than any other product. It's not… more»

What needs improvement?

To improve the product, it needs some enhancement to the application's interface to be more user-friendly. The product has all the features that we need and we can depend upon it. My issue with the product is that it is not easy to use without a guide or a proper manual. That is my point. It is not very friendly to use. For example, we may need the application to be more friendly in other sorts of… more»

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

We used a lot of different products before this one. One was Micro Focus. AccuRev has similar features, but money-wise it is cheaper than Micro Focus. Right now, money-wise, I am not sure that either is worth the investment. Our budget controls our work environment. The AccuRev product is okay. The main difference between AccuRev and Micro Focus is that Micro Focus is a huge name. You can depend… more»

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate AccuRev as an eight.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the reporting of the CPU usage on the dashboard. If we have multiple jobs running it gives us information such as the number of jobs, in a particular timeslot. This allows us to focus on saving CPU time or… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are working on integrating this tool directly into our DevOps pipeline. Once this is done then we will be able to supply our clients with regular updates that tell them what to look at in order to improve performance.

What needs improvement?

The stability of this solution can be improved.

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

We have used similar tools by Atlassian, CA, HP, and Micro Focus. We use some of these simultaneously with IBM.

What other advice do I have?

This is one of the tools that helps us to add value to businesses by fine-tuning systems and assessing pain point areas. By identifying exactly what needs to be looked at, it helps people to bring down the load on the system. Basically… more»
