All http checks with Apica Synthetic [make] it the natural choice. When it comes to other types of checks, Apica Synthetic has a solution but there are [also] some other tools you can use instead.

Catchpoint

It's an excellent tool for monitoring results and looking for failures, errors, or abnormal behavior in your applications; also, you can configure alerts to be sent to the appropriate person in case of failures. It can be used to run a smoke test so you can save some time. It's not the appropriate tool to run regression testing.

Cons

Apica Synthetic

  • It's very clunky. Infrastructure is large and very difficult to upgrade.
  • SaaS and On-premise versions are different. There is an LDAP integration but users can only be assigned to one group (i.e. department). If you are in 2 departments, you need 2 separate logins.
  • It filled a gap in monitoring for us, but we're looking to move on.

Catchpoint

  • Would like Catchpoint to replace awful canned scheduled reports with customized ad-hoc reports built from the Performance tab.
  • Pricing for Catchpoint Points is too high. Limits the number of tests we use.

It's hard to find the functionalities that I am looking for in the application. Even if I did something in the past, after a time I have to re-learn again where the functionalities are. This is a powerful tool, but not user-friendly. Texts in the buttons and menus are not always meaningful or easily comprehensible.

Alternatives Considered

Apica Synthetic

Apica Synthetic is more flexible [when] making custom checks. The support from Apica can help you with nearly every check you have to do.

We are an ex-Keynote customer and an ex-Gomez customer. Catchpoint is better than both of those platforms.

Return on Investment

Apica Synthetic

  • Got visibility into availability other than relying on just canary pages.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Catchpoint

  • It's very helpful to run tests after a deployment or release, so we can quickly see at the results before investing time on testing manually or running other tools.
  • It provides alerts, so we can be aware of errors even during the weekends (when our engineering team is not usually looking at the application).
