price point is good; it was an early product available which allowed us to link requirements to tests (and vice versa), create test runs from clones and provide reports. I also like how easy it is to import test results back into the system
What do you dislike?
Hasn't changed much in the past 10 years; uses an embedded, headless DB that we can't query, and the support for synchronization to standard DBs (SQL Server, for example) is shaky. I also don't like that it is based on PERL - customization requires that you're well versed in PERL and in my 20 years I've only known 1 person who really is, and 2 who thought they were.
Recommendations to others considering the product
While difficult to set up (it can take days), it is stable once in place. don't expect to customize much unless you're very well versed in PERL. The product is rarely enhanced - the look and feel is nearly identical to what it was when I first evaluated for another company in about 2005. That being said, it's a no frills package that works. Integration is week though
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
allows us to manage test cases, execute and report on testing. The reports aren't half bad... searching is relatively good, in a Bugzilla manner of speaking
