Worksoft Certify Pricing and License Cost

Judy Zeman
QA Manager at Carrier Global Corp.
The initial investment is probably a little high. It was a little hard for me to sell, but it was a one-shot deal and that's why it's so high. All we are doing now is paying annual maintenance, which we don't have to do if we don't want upgrades, but we do. It is based on the number of licenses. If we had bought a larger number of licenses, our costs would have come down significantly, which is fair. I did struggle a little bit trying to sell it because our company had already had one failure with a testing solution, and here I was asking for money to try again. However, since we got it in, we have had great success. We have seven licenses today. The people using it are three automation engineers/quality assurance testers who do SAP ECC. We also have three who do web application testing. They are the ones creating the automation for our portals, e.g., customer portal. I have one test lead who oversees this team and bounces between both SAP and web testing. We haven't bought a whole lot of licenses and haven't rolled it out to a massive number of users. We're doing all the work ourselves. Since these are concurrent licenses, we could double the number of users with our current licenses because six out of the seven are offshore. While we are sleeping, they're using them. View full review »

We ended up buying too many licenses. They were very good at selling it to us, and probably oversold it a little. We bought 45 licenses and have never used more than twenty. However, they gave us a pretty significant discount on the bigger license, so it made sense for us to buy enough that we wouldn't have to go back and ask for more. At that time, we had budget to do that. The licensing is pretty straightforward. We have considered using them to do robotic process automation and may still do that. Initially, we were worried that our license might preclude us from using the tool for something other than testing, but when we checked into that, there is no limitation. We could use Certify to do robotic process automation, which is basically running a process on your correction system instead of your test system. Therefore, we may do that in the future.

Purchasing and licensing are okay. Go for the perpetual licenses. In that way, you own a license, then you can purchase maintenance and support on top of that, so you don't have to pay every year for it. Even if you don't want it a contract with Worksoft Certify in the future, you will have your own license of it. Then, if your usage is not that much, you can have one or two perpetual licenses. However, if you want to run your processes, you will need more licenses, e.g., using the run-only licenses. They are really cheap compared to the full licensing. There are multiple licenses available from Worksoft depending on your requirements. You can take any one of them, and they are really good. For example, if we are using five to 10 perpetual licenses where we need to update or create scripts and run parallelly, simultaneously multiple scripts with just one license, it will take months for us to run 162 processes. Therefore, we have run-only licenses that we use when it comes to executing our test scripts on releases. View full review »

The price is in line with everyone else's in the market. They are not cheaper nor more expensive than anyone else who was in our RFP. There is a cost involved to doing it, but once you get over the initial cost, then you'll start reaping the benefits and seeing that testing is getting done more quickly and efficiently. We are still early on with it, but the expectation and what we're seeing is that we will start seeing some savings coming out on the back-end once we have this done. View full review »

It is expensive compared to some of the other automation tools in the market. However, the benefits and ROI has proved that it has been a good investment. We have concurrent licenses. View full review »

License model is a traditional one. As with any other manufacturing company, the software testing is not our core business, it's not in our interest to invest capital into the licenses. It would be preferable to have a pay-per-use model. At the same time, it's a fair game, for now. Aside from their standard licensing fee, if you want to have enterprise support, there's an additional cost. View full review »

Conduct a proof of concept (POC) so that you understand what needs to be invested with Worksoft Certify. You will need to understand what sort of time you need to initially set aside to learn and apply the tool, and how that time can be leveraged to shorten continuing development of Worksoft Certify test scripts (processes) as facility in the tool increases. * Someone needs to know to administer it. * Someone needs to know how to develop the tests. * Someone needs to develop a representative automated test script for a candidate application in your organization. * That person also needs to execute the scripts and then report results of the scripts. That script needs to execute several times. Now a comparison needs to be done with the time it takes to execute the multiple test runs against the same time it would take to do the same thing manually. In this way, you can now quantify your savings. Now apply the need over the instances in your organization and compare that to the pricing and licensing to see how many instances of this effort would give you a return on your investment. You will find that you will have many instances that would justify the price and licensing costs. View full review »

We would purchase more licenses right now if they were cheaper. Pricing is a little bit of a hindrance. View full review »

We are not using Capture 2.0 at this point, because we don't have a Worksoft Analyze license. View full review »

We would like to have a cheaper version for a single user/trail version of the same for our trainings. The cloud based environment should be available free for the trainings for 15 days or so. View full review »

The license cost is quite high. This might not be a consideration for a large company, but it will be for a small company. E.g., Tricentis (their competitor) offers certain exclusive use cases where a company can use it in a certain way, so this is another option that companies consider. View full review »
