[k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]

I think QAComplete is a great way to organize the literal hundreds of development bugs that are discovered throughout an agile-based project. Teams aren't always able to hotfix items on the fly and this tool provides a great repository and facility for storing and prioritizing those technical debt items that may get overlooked from sprint to sprint. It also let's everyone on the team get a clear understanding for project progress.

  • The user interface can be somewhat perplexing and difficult to navigate at times.
  • Naming conventions aren't always succinct and additional training is needed by those who have more experience using the program.
  • A modern refresh of the UI would help keep the product from looking dated.

I gave QAComplete this rating because though I do feel that it is a powerful tool, it's definitely not designed for the everyday user. Obviously the target demographic is QA specialists who should be team members that are very technical and methodical in their approaches. However, for the rest of the team, it can often time prove difficult to navigate. Also, the UI is in need of a serious refresh.

I have not had to work with their customer service directly yet. Our client has been utilizing this tool for years, so I would assume that the support they have received would be good enough to keep them wanting to continue to use the product.
