Great Value , Wonderful tool Why pay more?

What do you like best?

Very good test management tool, beats our ALM for a 1/4 of the price. Why pay more? I reduced my maintenance cost fo 2 tools of $32K to $15K. With no decrease of features or functionality. Savings allowed me to hire one more off shore resource for testing.

What do you dislike?

Needs connections to Ranorex automation tool, and Blue print requirements tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Reduces maintenance cost to the organization, transition was very seamless form ALM to QTest

A quick (and hopefully informative!) review of qTest

What do you like best?

The simplicity of qTest combined with a slick UI makes it an easy and intuitive piece of software to use on a daily basis. Writing test scripts is made easy and on boarding new members of the team is hassle free.

The ability to record systems and create test cases from them has decreased the amount of time it takes to script and improved the accuracy of our scripts (when applicable) + recording of our test execution has improved the quality of our defect reporting.

Ultimately it does what a lot of other products on the market do, however it simply does everything better.

What do you dislike?

Currently very little; I would like to be able to call tests from other projects (though this could be down to user error rather than a limitation of the software!)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of the trial and lean on the support you get from their excellent customer support team. It made evaluation and implementation a breeze for my team at Sky Bet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Due to the solution we had previously implemented it was difficult to encourage testers to make the most of the system. Subsequently test execution wasn't always clear or even visible; qTest gave the test management team a way to increase engagement with our test tool and improve utilisation.

Due to the ease of use we have also had no issues getting UAT testers from within the business to engage with the tool.

Robust Test Design and Execution Platform

What do you like best?

We can maintain a suite of step-by-step test designs, one test to cover each feature of the product, or one aspect of a feature. Those tests can easily be rolled forward to the next baseline, or the next delivery of the current baseline. Additional tests can be added to any baseline's suite of tests at any time, so we can add a test that covers a particular defect coming back from fielded software or a new test of a newly added feature. We can also designate a onetime group of tests as part of a particular milestone, e.g. a set of regression tests to make sure that a product change did not leak into related areas.

What do you dislike?

QTest has a lot of features and can be overwhelming in that regard. We use it primarily to manage manual tests though we are looking into tracking automated tests as well. It can be difficult to reorganize a large product, or to manage a suite of inter-related but not hierarchical products. In one instance we ended up exporting our tests to a spreadsheet and then re-importing them, but at least that was possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are ensuring product quality and consistency by using common test management software across a large number of software products (dozens) and across multiple baselines (several). We even rolled some of our older, but still fielded, baselines from a prior test management tool and have been quite happy that we did so.

QTest Review from a daily user

What do you like best?

The ability to integrate with Jira for tracking purposes. We use Jira to create stories and sub-tasks and we link them directly to the associated test cases in qTest so it is easy to find related requirements for all our work in qTest.

What do you dislike?

No testing specific functionality and lack of some reporting ability. Also, we didn't want developers to all have their own access to qTest, even though we want DEVs to review test cases. We had to get around this by creating 1 read only user account they could all use and then have them sign their initials when leaving comments to show who reviewed what, but with a read only account, you can't even leave comments in qTest which doesn't make much sense. I can see a read only account not having ability to edit or delete, but leaving a comment doesn't affect anything and is a really useful part of the tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using Jira to track stories and requirements than this tool will work well to unify your work by being able to link to Jira requirements right in your test cases for reference.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to standardize development and testing work across multiple teams and have that work integrated with the original user stories and requirements as closely as possible. We have definitely saved a lot of man hours by having all our work in one shared location that everyone can see so that efforts are not duplicated across teams.

Great for testcase creation and managment

What do you like best?

The ease of creating individual test-cases.

The ease of creating test cycles and test suites.

The ease of managing requirements.

The ease of managing test execution.

The usefulness of the reporting tool in graphing project progress.

What do you dislike?

Modifying test steps on many test cases since the find/replace function does not include test steps and step expected results.

The program response is 'clunky' and sometimes takes extra time or even extra selections to access desired functional areas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The qTest program is very well designed and very useful right out of the box. It's ability to link with the JIRA issue tracking software makes the use of both programs seamless and efficient.

The qTest development team is always improving the software and are very open to new ideas and improvements. The customer service is very helpful in find out how to use a feature in the software.

Everything you need to get moving in the right direction fast

What do you like best?

qTest does an excellent job of making managing Releases, Requirements, Test Cases, and Test Results very easy. You can create requirements and quickly create test cases linked to that requirement in order to track test coverage. By utilizing Test Suites and Test Cycles it's easy to organize your tests for a release. The interface used for running tests is great, and geared toward making it easy to execute and maintain tests at the same time. Additionally, the support team is awesome. They always reply quickly, even when you simply ping them with a question. More than once, I have seen requests I have made to the support team addressed in the next release.

What do you dislike?

My only wish is that the reports be a little more configurable, but they provide more than enough canned reports and query functionality that you can get the info you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am managing a QA team at a startup with a distributed team. qTest made it easy to quickly get started writing and managing test cases and their results.

It is a pain to install, update and backup

What do you like best?

It works okay with TFS 2012. Once installed it does seem to be mostly set it and forget it. As long as you use Java 7. Support is pretty good.

What do you dislike?

It is very difficult to set up all the technologies. We can't update to TFS 2015 until they support it. A real issue with our team. It should be able to use whatever Java or TFS version. It would be great if they had an installer that installed all the underlying technology. Instead we had to setup redis, elasticsearch and java before we could install qTest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a pain to setup and as long as you use software published a few years ago, you shouldn't have a problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm in the development group. We use in our QA area. They seem to like it.
