Overall Satisfaction with TestComplete

TestComplete is used by several teams in my organization but not all. It is typically used for test automation and mainly for functional and regression testing.
  • It easily integrates with other tools like Jira, Github, Jenkins and even other test automation frameworks like Selenium. With these features, it makes a perfect case for continuous testing and CI/CD. Also perfect for DevOps style of development.
  • It supports multiple platforms like desktop applications, web applications, and mobile applications. This combination makes a great one as in today's world an app should be functioning in all environments.
  • It has cloud on demand test labs which is excellent for running your test suite in multiple environments without any hassle.
  • Got to say that object recognition is way superior to other tools which is very key for test automation. Also supports codeless automation which is cool.
  • Even though object recognition is their strength, it can still be better. Some times in a dynamic web application, the object recognition fails. Of course there are work arounds but you shouldn't really be using them.
  • Switching to debug mode when an exception pops in is missing. Would be a great add on.
  • There are many open source free tools in the market and license cost is a factor with this tool.
  • It's very hard to calculate ROI. Without automation, the manual test execution was taking 10 days and after automating, the test execution just takes a day. Here you have ROI.
  • Also, time for releasing the software into prod improved a lot. With test automation in place, there are more frequent releases.
We had a case to support testing activities for different platforms, OS and browsers and this tool helped us address it without too many hassles.
As I covered a lot in the review, their on demand cloud support for running the app on multiple OS, browsers, and different platforms is the one feature we wanted the most and we got from this tool.
With this tool in place and an automated test suite in place, our releases were much faster and there were fewer defects.
It's a great tool with a lot of in built features and support for cloud. In the market, there are many test tools available and there are many open source tools too. But this tool has some unique features which fair well.
TestComplete is best suited for automating the test suite. It's also a great tool if you have to test in multiple platforms and multiple OS and browsers. Their cloud on demand service is a great solution for this. If you are working on agile or any CI/CD platform, you should seriously give a try on this tool. If you are aiming to test Rest APIs or any web service testing, this is not the one to go for.
