"Early last year we began a study to select a product that would be able to meet our requirements. After examining other products which were unsatisfactory, an internet search turned up TestComplete and TestExecute: products that met our requirements 100%," said Ilaria.
"In particular, these two products combine ease of use with powerful features and feature great stability, despite being adapted to very different scenarios. All at an extremely competitive price."
"In addition, and no less importantly, the technical support we received during our trials was efficient, quick and of the highest quality."
Ilaria describe the TestComplete learning curve: "Learning to use TestComplete was very easy. Unlike other products that use proprietary languages, TestComplete is based on scripts in a standard language; therefore finding online documentation and examples is very easy. The ObjectBrowser is a powerful tool to inspect your application and its controls and related methods. It makes it possible to access anything from test scripts by just cutting and pasting."
Saving Time and Money
"TestComplete allows us to organize the test projects inside of a suite and define parametric functions to make the test modular without having to continually resort to the play-back function," said Ilaria.
"The price of TestComplete is extremely competitive and the price includes rapid and efficient technical support. Furthermore, it is well known that a widely tested product reduces the after-sales burden and reduces the cost of services."
Increasing Test Coverage
Ilaria described how TestComplete increased their overall testing: "TestComplete allowed us to introduce load testing and therefore optimize our applications’ memory management and resource management. Also, we are presently translating our internal acceptance checklists to verify functional aspects in the same number of test suites. Currently, we have implemented about ten test scenarios which cover various aspects of our applications: navigating the image archives, exporting images in AVI/BMP and DICOM formats, and connectivity."
"The main quality of TestComplete is its stability. Unlike the other products that we tried before selecting it, TestComplete's test execution rarely hangs up because it manages unexpected situations very well. If I can repeat myself again, another advantage is the competent and rapid technical support, which greatly helped us in several cases," said Ilaria.
