I'm currently working with the latest version of the solution. My advice to others is to just decide if this tool is usable for your requirements. I spent a lot of time developing some tests, but then I understood that we actually needed more platforms. That's why we will switch to another tool. That's also why it's important to check your organization's requirements. Otherwise, like us, you may need to switch. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

The solution is pretty good. Other options to use are TestComplete, and, for negative scenarios, Katalon Studios. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I'm using the desktop version of the solution. Right now, I'm working with TestComplete, and will compare it to another product called Squish. Once I've compared the two, I'll make recommendations to my customers and our company about whether or not to buy the complete solution. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate it higher if the solution offered the ability to test on Mac OS.

This product is quite mature, able to compete with other products in the market, and I would highly recommend it. Overall, we're very pleased with the implementation. My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to do a PoC and try this solution out. They can always reach out to me for help, and I can assist. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is that there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes with this tool, to make each customer's journey easier. This tool is simple to implement and easy to use. If you don't have much time to do a lot of reading then it is still easy to take each case and adopt it quickly. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We haven't fully evaluated this solution, although I know that they have made a lot of updates since I worked on it the last time. The results of this evaluation will set the standard for other projects. We are creating the basis for everything. As things progress, it will be me creating the test, but it will be executed on several machines. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
