Learn More About Automation Testing Tools

What is an Automation Test Tool?

As opposed to manual testing tools, Automation Test Tools produce test cases that can be applied to web pages & apps that are triggered, executed, evaluated and logged by scripts. Test automations can be applied to usability / UI testing (e.g. by simulating a user), load or performance testing, functional tests, or cross-browser compatibility tests as desired. Many automation testing tools also include features for supporting manual tests so that businesses have an all in one tool.

Automation Test Tools vary by what languages they can be built in (or if they have a visual test designer that allows building tests without code, but rather with a graphical model), and what they test, with particular tools specializing in a particular kind of test (e.g. browser compatibility). Businesses use automation testing tools to reduce manual testing needs, which frees up developers to perform other tasks. Additionally, automation testing tools allow businesses to manage testing for more applications than they may be able to with the normal amount of staff.

Features & Capabilities

Below are some of the most common features offered by automation testing tools.

  • Test Execution
  • Test Logging
  • Test Evaluation
  • Mobile and web support
  • Regression testing
  • Cross browser testing

Automation testing tool considerations

When considering purchasing an automation testing tool, consider some of the following factors of each product.

  1. Supported Languages: Some automation testing tools require developers to build tests in specific languages, while others are more generalist or include low code building of tests. Consider what skills your development team has and pick the tool that will work best for them.
  2. Manual Testing Support: Many automation testing tools include support for manual testing. Consider whether you already have the means to perform manual tests. If not, it may be a good choice to select an automation testing tool that can also handle manual testing.
  3. Supported Applications: Automation testing tools often support web and mobile testing, but some specialize in one or the other, while others focus on desktop applications. Consider what applications you need to test when choosing an automation testing tool.

Automation Test Tool Pricing

Automation testing tool pricing is typically subscription based, with increases depending on how testing is handled (virtual machines vs real devices). Businesses should expect to pay at least $20.00 per month, or more if their testing needs are more intense.

Frequently Asked Questions

What businesses benefit most from automation testing tools?

Automation testing tools are a great tool for freeing up developer resources. Businesses can benefit from automation testing tools the most if they find developers are spending a lot of time on testing. Businesses can also predict this need. If you are nearing major releases, a testing tool may make it easier to evaluate the application post release.

If I purchase an automation testing tool, do I need a manual test solution?

Some automation testing tools include support for manual testing, while others do not. If you have an automation testing tool that doesn’t support manual testing, you may benefit from a manual testing solution as a supplement.

Do automation testing tools test on virtual machines or on real devices?

Automation testing tools can run tests on either virtual machines or real devices. Notably, subscriptions often include one or the other, so if you only need virtual machine testing, you can likely purchase a cheaper license than if you need real device testing.
