Productivity Features

Object Recognition




Whether your application objects are simple or complex, standard or custom, textual or image-based, AscentialTest® has you covered, no matter what your testing platform. No worries about application changes. We'll find those objects where ever they go.


Drag and Drop


Drag & Drop

Record/playback seems like a great idea ... until the target application changes. Then it all breaks loose. Creating tests in our drag and drop editor is a snap. It's faster than recording and the results are for the long haul. No specialized training needed here. If you know how to test your application, AscentialTest is for you.




In AscentialTest, steps, tests, data, objects and plans are all reusable. That translates to less work for you not only when you're building tests but when you're maintaining them, which can be a real pain in the 'you know where'. Less work, less time, less dollars, less agita. That's what it's all about, right?

Manage It

Manage It

Testing projects can get messy fast without good test management tools. AscentialTest helps you keep track of all your testing assets and your test results. Locate your tests using unlimited tags, keep track of progress and generate reports from your browser so you're always up to the minute, no matter where you are.
