"HP Unified Functional Testing Is Way Too Costly For Us"

Problem

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. 

Solution

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.

"No Flexibility to Use Selenium or Modern Languages with UFT "

Problem

QA Engineers love Selenium or using modern scripting languages like JavaScript. Developers on the other end want to work within their IDE when creating UI tests. With no Selenium integration, support for old languages like VB.NET, and limited ability to link to dev ecosystem, UFT can be a big blocker to such a process. 

Solution

TestComplete combines the best of all worlds. Whether you are looking for point and click, Selenium support, or want to work in an IDE, TestComplete supports all of these. You can also choose from multiple languages like JavaScript, Python, VB.NET, JScript among others to create tests. 

"Integrating UFT with Other Tools Is Cumbersome"

Problem

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.

Solution

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.
