Scripting is the most valuable. We are able to record and then go in and modify the script that it creates. It has a lot of generative scripts.

The ability to develop scripts in Visual Studio, Visual Studio integration, is the most valuable feature.

The scalability of the solution is quite good. You can easily expand the product if you need to.

We moved to Ranorex because the solution did not easily scale, and we could not find good and short term third-party help. We needed to have a bigger pool of third-party contractors that we could draw on for specific implementations. Silk didn't have that, and we found what we needed for Ranorex here in the Houston area. It would be good if there is more community support. I don't know if Silk runs a user conference once a year and how they set up partners. We need to be able to talk to somebody more than just on the phone. It really comes right down to that. The generated automated script was highly dependent upon screen position and other keys that were not as robust as we wanted. We found the automated script generated by Ranorex and the other key information about a specific data point to be more robust. It handled the transition better when we moved from computer to computer and from one size of the application to the other size. When we restarted Silk, we typically had to recalibrate screen elements within the script. Ranorex also has some of these same issues, but when we restart, it typically is faster, which is important.

Everything is very manual. It's up to us to find out exactly what the issues are.

They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.

The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.
