Good testing, stable, and scalable, but the pricing could be lower

Pros and Cons

  • "We are happy with the technical support."
  • "On a smaller scale, there will be no budget issues, but as we expand to a larger user base, I believe we will face some pricing challenges."

What is our primary use case?

We work as consultants. This solution is used by our customer's company.

This product is primarily used for API testing. We do some load testing, but the REST API is what we mainly use.

What needs improvement?

The cost could be reduced slightly.

On a smaller scale, there will be no budget issues, but as we expand to a larger user base, I believe we will face some pricing challenges.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with SmartBear LoadComplete for approximately nine months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is, for the most part, stable. We had some issues, but we were able to resolve them.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

SmartBear LoadComplete is a product that can be scaled. This is what we intend to do in the future. Our product is in the architectural phase. We will add new features and scale our product as more people use this solution. We haven't tested the scalability yet but definitely something we will need in the future.

We have approximately 50 people who are using this solution.

We hope to reach 500 employees soon.

How are customer service and support?

We are happy with the technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had worked with some other API testing products such as SoapUI, and Postman. We did not use it at the enterprise level.

How was the initial setup?

We had better coordination and assistance with installation. 

The installation went well, it was simple. It did not cause any problems for us.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Certainly, the cost could be reduced. It requires attention. Clients have expressed dissatisfaction with the price.

What other advice do I have?

We are still in the early stages of development. 

We may expand our use case in the future, but for now, we haven't addressed any other aspects of it.

We are experiencing some issues with our own product. We are still in the open phase, once we move out of that we can definitely explore this product further. But for now, we are happy with what have been using.

For now, with what I have used, I would rate  SmartBear LoadComplete a seven out of ten.
