Overall Satisfaction with LoadComplete

LoadComplete is used to evaluate the load testing process. We already had TestComplete for test automation so we started to use LoadComplete for load testing.
  • Easy and handy UI options to select
  • Good support from documentation
  • Eye-catching results
  • Slow when the size of tests increase
  • Coding is not possible
  • Need to support flexibility for a framework that can be customized based on needs
  • ROI is a different factor to consider.
  • Not a great tool for load testing if that is the real purpose.
  • JMeter being open-source can easily yield good ROI compared to LoadComplete.
JMeter being an open-source tool has the advantage of no cost to purchase the tool. Of course, to work in JMeter, the tester needs extensive knowledge on the tool to create a framework but LoadComplete has the advantage there as it is easy to start with and does well if the purpose is only basic load testing.
Customer support is good. If any concerns are raised, they are usually resolved soon, but when questioned about a feature LoadComplete does not support, it usually takes more time to resolve.
Usability is really good because being an enterprise tool that might be an easy option to convince users to try this tool. It has a lot of easy-to-use, cool options.

Do you think LoadComplete delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with LoadComplete's feature set?

No

Did LoadComplete live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of LoadComplete go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy LoadComplete again?

Yes

If we already use TestComplete for test automation and there is an urgent need to perform load testing, then it is easy to start with LoadComplete but the tool itself has to improve a lot and support customization to suit our needs. I would say if load testing is the main criteria to use this tool, then there are other open-source tools like JMeter that can support better than this. Of course, as it is an enterprise tool it has very good reporting and record and playback options that I see as an advantage for basic users.
