Testers have been able to free up their time: instead of doing mundane, repetitive tasks, they shift them off to automation

What is our primary use case?

We build helper utilities. For example, your particular test is one where when you do the test, you have 30 minutes of setup, but then at the end, you need a real human eye because it is brand new stuff and you don't know what to do.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the UI component tester."
  • "As many of our products are moving from PC to mobile, the most important thing that this solution needs is mobile app support."
