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

Pricing for small teams seems correct with respect to competitors.

No.

JIRA/Enterprise Tester: Felt less user-friendly and more complex to start with. Also, it was less adapted for coupling with a homemade automation testing tool.

What is most valuable?

The feature that is of most value is the ease of use. You don't need to follow complex procedures to create a test run, test case, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

Before we used TestRail there were no, or only a very small number of, test cases written. Now, because it is easy to use, there are many more test cases written.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice if they would add an export to Word.

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

I can’t answer this question because I’m not the one handling the financials.

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

We used TestLink. The reason we changed was that it was rather complex to use and there was no way to indicate at what step the case failed.

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give is just do it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I can’t answer this question because the choice was made before I came to this firm.

What is most valuable?

The ability to time test runs gives the tester the ability to compare calculated times to actual times it takes for a test case to run. This is the advantage over the… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Most significantly, I found it was easy to organize test cases, and that the application did not time out while I was in the middle of writing a test case.

What needs improvement?

I found it difficult to link requirements to test cases, if I remember correctly. Also, it would be nice to have a description section when creating the test scenario… more »

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

I hear that the cost is a bit pricey. My advice to others is to shop around for the best deal. Some options out there are free in cyberspace.

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

Well, I really didn't want to switch, but the rest of the team did not want to go through the exercise of learning how to configure the application for our needs. Also… more »

What other advice do I have?

Use the product to its fullest during the trial period, and if you need an extension on your trial time, most honest companies will oblige you with an extension.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.

What is most valuable?

Most valuable features are the ease of organizing test cases and a great API for sending results from automated test run results into the database.

How has it helped my organization?

We don't have to take care of test case results in time. They are automatically added into TestRail (TR) on a per case basis, so you have the test results history.

What needs improvement?

Only a few small ones. Reporting could be more flexible regarding repeating reports. You have to basically repeat the same report run, but then you have two reports. An… more »

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

Use TestRail Cloud (online TR hosted server) and don't worry about maintenance or scalability. It saves a lot of cash and time.

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

I used Zephyr, but didn't make the switch. My new company was already using TR when I joined it.

What other advice do I have?

It is great for manual testing. However, it is awesome for automated testing and integrations with most used testing frameworks.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yeah, Zephyr, Redmine, etc.
