What is most valuable?* Spy * CodeModule * XPath
How has it helped my organization?Automation coverage overnight is very useful. Compared to Selenium, Ranorex has a very small learning curve, so most of the technical QA people can start development with it right away.
What needs improvement?They need to have modularity (running concurrently different parts of the tests on different environments and reporting back to centralized run centre). Currently we are implementing this… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Floating licensing are good for running the scripts on different machines (runtime). For developing, we are using node-locked ones, because Ranorex requires Windows, so we need to buy Windows laptops… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Selenium was in use before Ranorex. Ranorex have a great starter's guide for people that have never done automation. Selenium problems will lead to huge stack traces and unclear errors, while Ranorex… more»
What other advice do I have?You need to have several windows environments for development. You can use Ubuntu or Mac for running tests inside AWS windows box, but development is better or native windows.

What is most valuable?* Ranorex Spy * Ranorex Repository * Ranorex Recorder * Mobile libraries * User Guide * Support Team
How has it helped my organization?Need few upgrades to automate desktop applications
What needs improvement?* Snapshots for WPF applications taking too long than expected. *
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We're really satisfied with the pricing as well and buying licenses is easy. If you have a large automation team try floating license and runtime license which is cheaper than premium license.
What other advice do I have?Go through the user guide and update your library files for your mobile automation process.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We tried using HP QTP and Selenium, but opted for Ranorex because of its reasonable price and the ease of use of the automation tool.

It supports multiple repositories and the ability to sort and maintain the repository in a positive way. It needs the ability to maintain and access tests in a more intuitive/structured way.
What is most valuable?Element Identification, I really liked the way Ranorex created a way (XPath) to identify their solution for maintaining stored elements in the repository.
How has it helped my organization?The product supports multiple repositories and the ability to sort and maintain the repository in a positive way. I used the repository in combination with shared functions to pretty easily create reusable functions, that only needed… more»
What needs improvement?I would like it to be more intuitive to use, especially in test management. I'd also like the ability to maintain and access tests in a more intuitive/structured way .
What other advice do I have?My advice for implementation is to do a proof of concept first to ensure this product works for you. Do your research, all products have their positives and negatives. Assemble a list of requirements, interview vendors and other users of… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We evaluated many different products for the engagement. We went with Ranorex due to its relative ease of use, and its support for automating desktop/WPF applications out of the box.

It provides us a better user-friendly UI, a less expensive tool, and continuous integration capabilities. However, it needs support for OSs other than Windows.
What is most valuable?A non-technical person can record a test and execute the same. But, a technical person is required to write code module and test data.
How has it helped my organization?As per my knowledge, we don't have a (Free) robust tool for functional and GUI testing in desktop application testing field. This is way better than QTP and Silktest when compared to in following aspects: User friendly UI Cost of Tool Continuous Integration Instant release of updated add-on as per latest technologies and browsers. Full fledged trial product for exact 30 days.
What needs improvement?Need support for other operating systems like Mac and Linux, and not just Windows.
