Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality.""It is good for API testing. It is also good for continuous integration testing. You can connect it to Jenkins.""It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete.""This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.""The basic framework and project organization is very good.""The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding.""It has been good so far for API testing on Mac. It is not that hard to learn and use. There is so much support out there, so if anyone wants to start using it, there is enough help."

More Katalon Studio Pros »

"Micro Focus UFT One gives us integration capabilities with both API and GUI components. I like the user interface. It doesn't require that much skill to use and has automatic settings, which is useful for users who don't know what to select. It also has dark and light themes.""It is easy to automate and new personnel can start learning automation using UFT One. You don't have to learn any scripting.""I find UFT One to be very good for thick clients, which are non-browser applications.""For traditional automation, approximately half of our tests end up automated. Therefore, we are saving half the testing time by pushing it off to automation. That gives it an intrinsic benefit of more time for manual testers and business testers to work on possibly more important and interesting things. For some of our applications, they don't just have to do happy path testing anymore, they can go more in-depth and breadth into the process.""The initial setup is relatively easy.""UFT has improved our ability to regression test.""This product is easy to use, understand, and maintain.""The solution has good out-of-the-box protocols."

Cons
"We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.""One improvement would be if it could support more programming languages such as JavaScript or Python. Right now, it is only on Groovy, which I think is not a too popular language.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.""The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""Now we are having difficulties in using it and had to limit our automation experts to the features that Katalon allows us to use for free. It was free access and they claimed that it would be free for all time.""There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example."

More Katalon Studio Cons »

"They need to reduce the cost because it is pretty high. It's approximately $3,000 per user.""The artificial intelligence functionality is applicable only on the web, and it should be expanded to cover non-web applications as well.""The price is very high. They should work to lower the costs for their clients.""The AI feature needs improvement. For banking applications, we input formatted text from documents, but the AI feature is recognizing three fields as one field, e.g., for a phone number, it puts all 10 digits in the international code or country code. Then, the script fails.""Technical support could be improved.""There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to friction-free continuous testing across the software life cycle, as a local installation is required to run UFT.""[Tech support is] not a 10 because what happens with some of our issues is that we might not get a patch quickly and we have to hold on to an application until we get a proper solution.""Sometimes, the results' file size can be intense. I wish it was a little more compact."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We were using the free version of this tool.""Katalon Studio is a free tool.""There is a free version of the tool to use and support is available through the community forums, but there is a licensed version as well.""We are using the free version. We plan on getting a paid version because there is a limitation in terms of the number of users. We want to maximize it.""I am using the free version.""Its pricing is quite reasonable. If you require their help in getting started, then there is a professional services fee on top of the product license cost.""We are using the free version of Katalon Studio at this point.""The price is not high it's good."

More Katalon Studio Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is only $3,000. I don't know how many QA analysts you would have in any given company. Probably no more than five or 10. So if it's a large corporation, it can easily afford $15,000 to $25,000. I don't see that being an issue.""The way the pricing model works is that you pay a whole boatload year one. Then, every year after, it is around half or less. Because instead of paying for the new product, you are just paying for the support and maintenance of it. That is probably one of the biggest things that I hear from most people, even at conferences, "Yeah, I would love to use UFT One, but we don't have a budget for it."""Compared to other tools in the market, UFT One is very competitive. The recent Covid pandemic situation also hit customer budgets significantly, so Micro Focus offered some discounted prices, which is definitely competitive.""The pricing fee is good. If someone makes use of the solution once a day for a half hour then the fee will be more expensive. For continuous use and application of the solution to different use cases, the fee is average."
