The automated test farm of 20 virtual machines for execution, 20 TestComplete licenses and 20 automated testers are doing the job of 100 manual testers.
What is most valuable?* SoapUI/ReadyAPI integration * Selenium integration * We run all of tests using TestExecute, this is just the executer for all TestComplete tests – command line version so can be integrated with any… more»
How has it helped my organization?We did a POC for number of tools in past and eventually decided on TestComplete. We started with one tester and one test which we used to trigger manually. As the product matured, it added cross… more»
What needs improvement?* Error handling features in the tool are a little limited * The tool currently is Windows only, would like to see it being implemented for Mac and Linux * Once the tests are created in one languages… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?No. We did a POC on multiple tools and TestComplete was our first selection
What other advice do I have?The tool has great capability but also has great potential to demoralize if you implement it in incorrectly. Automated tests complement manual testing and doesn’t remove manual tests completely so I… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?QTP, TOSCA, RATIONAL, RANOREX

Our automation engineers can create tests more easily, but the code editor gives poorly formatted code.
What is most valuable?It's cross platform automation capabilities specially ranging across web, UNIX (via putty), and other systems.
How has it helped my organization?TestComplete replaced QTP as the preferred choice of tool for the organization. It is much faster, works better across technologies (esp. Flex based UI) and is better compatible with newer technologies directly out of the box. We could have… more»
What needs improvement?The code editor, though following eclipse-style, is still a work in progress and gives a very poorly formatted code once viewed via other editing tools like Notepad++. Performance is another aspect which can be improved.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We previously used QTP, and later moved to TestComplete as it provided more out of the box support for newer technologies like Flex and AIR.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?* QTP * Selenium

Our biggest problem was the timing between input and responses, but a whole suite of tests could be run automatically.
What is most valuable?The features of TestComplete that were most valuable to me were: * The ability to run a whole suite of tests automatically (which we did overnight) * The ability to create test scripts that were easy… more»
How has it helped my organization?It would have been a huge task to have to run the test scripts manually, probably 12 hours straight. We were able to run tests on daily promotions of software so all software was tested every night… more»
What needs improvement?We were testing handheld barcode scanners running WindowsCE with many menus of warehouse functions, and our biggest problem was the timing between input and responses. This was because sometimes the… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?unknown.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Nothing previous to TestComplete.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?TestComplete was installed before I was hired, so I know nothing about this.

We've now automated 90% of the testing we used to perform manually, but I would have preferred Python support in earlier versions.
What is most valuable?It's easy to work with and doesn’t take much to get it setup to start working with it.
How has it helped my organization?In my previous three positions, there was not a test automation solution in place. I was given the opportunity to explore options. Once I chose a solution, we were able to implement TestComplete and were able to automate about 90% of the… more»
What needs improvement?This product continually improves and in v11, they now have Python support. This was something that I wanted and they provided it the latest version.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?One of the main reasons I went with TestComplete, besides the information that I already provided, was the cost for TestComplete and TestExecute. They make it very easy for large to small companies to implement without large costs. The… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I looked at various options like QuickTest Professional, Rational Functional Tester, and SilkTest.

The latest version can be used for mobile testing, but more effective object mapping for Citrix systems is needed.
What is most valuable?Keywords-Driven frameworks and Data-Driven Testing (DDT) methodologies used for building effective frameworks.

What do you think of SmartBear TestComplete?For more than a year, I've been working on automation of functional testing, regression testing using TestComplete. It's a paid automation tool. It's an little tricky to learn and use but quite similar to Selenium. You can use xpath, record and play to script test cases. Pros: - Similar to Selenium IDE, you can record and play test scripts - Similar to Selenium webdriver, you can create test scripts in VBScript, JScript, DelphiScript, C++Script or C#Script. (personally, I liked VBScript) - Test results logs helps in finding precisely the issue where test failed - Tests can be recorded in keyword driven or screen capture modes - Tests can be created for regression, functional, DDT (data driven testing), ODT(object driven testing), and so on - Can easily do…
