Considered Both Products

Chose BrowserStack
I have used perfecto but BrowserStack experience is better compared to that as it is much easier to log in and preform quick tests
Chose BrowserStack
Simple UX and UI made it easier to use with a Chrome addon. Vastly better performance compared to the other offerings was the critical success factor that won the deal plus the pre-sales team zoom calls.
Chose BrowserStack
All are pretty good platforms and its tough to compare them. BrowserStack I felt was much more responsive from Support perspective and also better on performance of the platform.
Chose BrowserStack
When using Perfecto by Perfecto, we were experiencing issues with the product and the support, which we have not experienced since our subscription to BrowserStack
Chose BrowserStack
We never really took a serious look at other platforms. BrowserStack had been recommended to us and after a brief evaluation, we were hook and never really considered an alternative. The other platforms seem to provide similar features and benefits, but we've been pleased with …

BrowserStack
For debugging mobile app, there's feature to inspect the network and app. In order to run a lot of test scenario, to get faster result we need a lot of devices. Using browserstack really help us because they provides us with "cloud device farm" that can be run in parallel. Running automation testing through browserstack will give us summary that contains of video, passrate, error info, etc.

Same test case scripts can be executed on different mobiles irrespective of operating systems and language it supports. This covers a wide range of devices (Android, iOS, Blackberry etc) on which automated testing can be performed in very less time. The test scripts are written written using keyword-based Script Once Technology. The creation of scripts are easy. It saves time and effort. Repetitive testing on each iteration would be now be less tedious. This would also allow QA to focus on quality. It would expand test case coverage in the application and finally release reliable/robust application. In all, improving the app quality.

Pros
BrowserStack
  • BrowserStack App Automate dashboard gives us video, screenshots and logs of what exactly happened during the test run. This helps us easily analyse failures in our automation test and figure out the root cause for failures.
  • BrowserStack App Live provides us with lot of devices to test on. This is specifically useful in case of high end iPhone devices which are costly for us to procure in house.
  • BrowserStack App Automate provides parallel threads which can be shared across multiple teams. This has helped us scale our mobile test automation effort across the organisation.
  • In house mobile lab might be cost effective initially but when it comes to maintaining it and add new devices as and when it comes in market makes it less cost effective than cloud solution like BrowserStack

Perforce Software
  • It has a lot of room for improvements in terms of reporting and integration with other reporting and defect tools.
  • It should have the capability of capturing charts data.
  • It should be able to do some scenarios that only manual testers can do. Like - use of camera and touch ID features.

This decisions mostly taken by senior management at VP and CEO level, they also need approval from many other teams like dev, design according to the use, and finance due to competitive cost, They do check other product as well, and I am just a single person from QA team, and not a decision maker

Usability
BrowserStack
It integrates directly in internal networks and local development. The point and click interface of choosing your device, pick the browser/version and you have a working emulation of that exact environment. What else could you ask for? I've set our least computer savvy users up with BrowserStack for testing in minutes. It feels like it's just part of your local environemnt.

Performance
BrowserStack
The tests are fast considering the fact that they're Appium tests. I've seen tests reliably pass or fail when they're supposed to, with next to zero issues on the BrowserStack side of things. Tests launch only seconds after I kick off them off from my CLI.

I'm saying a 10 for support for BrowserStack only based on feedback from the development team. I myself have never had to reach out to support for any questions or issues, but others in the company have. From my conversations with them, the support was fantastic and had been a pleasure working with the BrowserStack team.

BrowserStack's library of devices and browsers is way bigger than Chrome DevTools. Additionally, I find that BrowserStack is more accurate than Chrome DevTools in regards to how pages render on the various devices I need to test on. Overall, BrowserStack is far better than Chrome DevTools.

Perfecto has a wide array of mobile devices we can chose from. Automation is easier using OCR technology. The test script generated detailed report of the executed test script at the end with vast variety of information such as actual results, screen captures in digital format, continuous video recording of the entire script and graphs showing statistics about the execution
