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.

Javascript Developer at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
May 31 2018

What is most valuable?

At the moment, all our deploys depend on results of automation. If the tests are failing, then we know that something is wrong at the early stages of development. Live testing helps us to debug problems across all browsers.

How has it helped my organization?

During first test stages of implementation, CrossBrowserTesting's live testing was helpful because my company is more about the server's programming and we do not have real devices for the manual testing of the UI. Then, when I started to... more»

What needs improvement?

A problem that we are facing quite often is related to the network connection. Tests can fail if the remote CrossBrowserTesting's VM has connection problems. This happens mostly with browsers of Internet Explorer family which work on Windows... more»

Web Specialist at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
May 31 2018

What is most valuable?

Static screenshots are the feature most often used, because they are a simple method of detecting problems. I can run a page through the screenshot tool, then send a URL with the results to my team. Though it is probably a minor part of what... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our recent conversion from a static to an adaptive flexible layout was a major goal for our web site, and CrossBrowserTesting was an invaluable tool for trying out our new code. We could not have been certain that we would have achieved our... more»

What needs improvement?

The screenshot tool defaults to a screen layout instead of a full page test. I find it a bit cumbersome that I can't have it run a full screenshot as my default. Every time, I have to select the full screen, then restart its captures, which... more»

QA Analyst / Software QC at Quartzy, Inc
Jun 13 2018

What is most valuable?

I use the screenshot functionality most frequently and live testing on occasion. I have also used the record and replay functionality once or twice. With screenshots, I can quickly verify a page looks good universally in minutes. It is also... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution improves the customer experience using Quartzy. It has saved us time and money on our web app. It would taken time to look across many devices and browser versions every time that we made changes to the front-end of the... more»

What needs improvement?

A few intermediary pricing options for small QA teams would be nice, e.g., unlimited screenshots, "as you need it" parallel tests, etc.
