Overall Satisfaction with TestComplete

In our organization we have a software system that consists of several windows desktop applications. We use TestComplete to create automated tests for those applications so we can perform continuous automated regression testing. In this way we are trying to release more often and increase the quality of our software
  • We are using TestComplete for windows desktop applications and, compared to other tools that we tried, it was most intuitive and easy to use
  • Other than that, since our application is large and consists of lots of different UI controls, TestComplete worked well with most of them, since some other tools didn't work at all
  • TestComplete has integration with Git so we can easily save our tests to a remote Git repository
  • Sometimes is not easy to find the property you would like to use for checkpoint
  • TestComplete for windows could run faster in some scenarios
  • Git integration could be improved (to not only use Tortoise Git)
  • We have started to think more about automation as a whole in our company (not only testing and QA but other processes as well)
  • A negative would be that it takes time to learn and we had to invest time in order to create tests
Yes, we bought it for creating automated tests for our Windows desktop applications and we managed to create tests and to run them every day. This way, we increased confidence in our software quality, and saved time and money that we used for manual testing.
We use only desktop applications currently.

Since we are using Test Complete for windows desktop applications, we think it is well suited for that purpose and we recommend it for it. For other scenarios we have't used it so we cannot either recommend or not recommend.
