Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The scalability of the product is good.""One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements.""It is good for API testing. It is also good for continuous integration testing. You can connect it to Jenkins.""The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds.""The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality.""It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""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.""The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options."

"We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.""The technical support is good, we were satisfied.""Tosca BI is important to make sure that our data integrity is in check and validated; to make sure our data is good. Our data is the number-one important driver for our company, so if that's not good, we have some big problems.""This solution is easy to use for everybody, including those who are not IT-educated.""The reporting is really nice.""It can provide all levels of testing from design to execution to reporting.""Tricentis Tosca is a really cool tool that you don't have to be technical to use it. Additionally, the solution is easy to use. The modules, libraries, and reusable are in an efficient way to update all the tests. I find it spot on with that. We also started using the design which we switched from Excel. The design was superior to Excel.""You can quickly build automated testing, manage it, and have it run on a regular basis to ensure that there are no issues."

Cons
"It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature.""We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved.""There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example.""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."

More Katalon Studio Cons »

"I have found that some of the functions could be missed in the solution for new users. They are not obviously present.""They can make it more stable. I have used this tool for SAP applications. They have an alliance with SAP, and it mostly worked fine, but there were a few glitches. However, we got the required support from the Tricentis team. They are coming up with their new versions and upgrades with respect to how the Tricentis systems as cloud applications are updated, and it would be good if they have a robust accelerator pack.""Many times when we have raised a ticket, we did not get an urgent response.""You need to spend much more time learning the tool and how to use it, compared to others.""I would like to be able to manage different projects in one repository or have better data exchange between repositories.""The solution needs to improve its simulation of mobile environments. Right now, that aspect is really lacking.""Tosca's reporting features could be better. Tricentis had a reporting tool called Analytics, but it didn't function properly after they reworked it. After that, they tried a new approach with key-tracing, and that didn't work.""It would be of great help if they can fix the loading or performance issues. Sometimes, when I create the test case folder and test cases, it feels like it has loading or performance issues. When passing the objects, we can't sometimes find the exact element. We need to find out that exact location and just give the path for that, and then it works. In the pipeline, when creating Jenkins, we create the list execution for passing the execution list to the commander. I feel it is a bit late, by a fraction of seconds. I first thought it could be my mistake or a setting issue, but I worked on that, and it's not a mistake or a setting issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The price is not high it's good.""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 were using the free version of this tool.""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.""We are using the free version of Katalon Studio at this point.""Katalon Studio is a free tool."

More Katalon Studio Pricing and Cost Advice »

"My understanding is that it's an expensive product, although I don't know the specifics with regards to pricing.""They are probably more expensive than other comparable tools, but you also get the full suite of testing tools.""I would like to see better costing packs. There are several features but USD $11,000 for one license is expensive.""I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to talk about the pricing, but it has some significant costs. For example, you have to pay a license and maintenance fee. Then the rest of the terms are negotiable. We have to consider what we need and what benefit we get from it.""I am satisfied with the cost.""Tricentis Tosca is an expensive solution and there is an annual license required. The whole licensing process is confusing and it could be made easier."
