Overall Satisfaction with TestComplete

Currently only the QA department uses TestComplete and mainly as a regression tool. Recently though Development Head also start using this as part of a system overhaul, again using it as a regression and sanity check tool. TestComplete will assist any "reader" of the test case to see the process flow and of course, any errors caused by the recent deployment of code will be flagged.
  • Allow non technical staff to capture automation tests
  • Clear and uncomplicated visualization of results
  • Compatibility with other applications like selenium
  • Remote connection e.g. into a jump box is an issue that seems we can overcome by using selenium, but using only TestComplete would have been preferable.
  • Automatic kick-off of test cases. Might just be my team that is struggling but possibly look at an easy solution/interface for nontechnical staff?
  • Regression testing often requires a dedicated team, but human and monetary resources do not always allow for it. Having automation cover parts of this directly relates to saving on both - and top management can make the quick calculation to convert those man-hours into money
  • Where you have smaller QA teams, clients are more assured knowing that automation is involved, in effect increasing the QA count dedicated to their project.
None, TestComplete is our first go at automation
Again it allows both staffs with and without coding ability to capture and run test cases which is a big plus. The click, record, runway is good enough to get a noncoder started, while those with more technical ability can add additional and quicker ways of capturing and setting up more complex tests, so TestComplete caters for both.
