UFT costs can quickly go out of hand. Global licensing can be complex and expensive to figure out. Expensive renewal rates, maintenance fees, and dedicated 3rd party consultant just add to the costs and the time it take to have any ROI on UFT.
Unlike UFT, TestComplete comes with modular pricing. You can buy what you need, when you need. Just purchase desktop, web, and mobile licenses separately and there is no more need to pay for modules that you don’t use.
TestComplete reduced our software licensing and support costs by about 50% as to compared HP UFT...
Linking UFT to other tools in your ecosystem is time taking and often comes at an additional cost. Limited source control integration, no BDD framework support, and paid third-party integrations to build and defect management tools are some of the examples.
TestComplete tests can be triggered through Jenkins or Bamboo. Built-in plugins for source control systems such as Git, Subversion, Mercurial, and TFS are also available. After completion, tests can be bought back to test management tools like QC and QAComplete.
There is very little visibility into the future product plans and viability given HP’s recent spin-merge with Micro Focus. New versions often deprecate key features without much of an advanced notice.

Quick responses from TestComplete support team helped us dramatically reduced the testing cycle over UFT. We have also reduced long term costs by over 40%.
