What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are the GUI, the easy identification of objects, and folder structure creation.

How has it helped my organization?

It's improved the way our organization functions by automating test cases that were previously done manually. It also improved the robustness and execution time of these test cases.

What needs improvement?

It doesn’t support Telerik UI controls and we are currently looking for a patch for this. It's also quite an expensive solution.

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

What other advice do I have?

This tool is awesome for automation even though it is expensive.

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

HP UFT cost a lot and there are other free tools that can do the same and much more.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Selenium Webdriver.

What other advice do I have?

If cost is not an issue, then UFT can be considered. There are other tools on the market that can do the same for less.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I joined the company after the decision was made to use HP UFT.
