Best Automated Testing Tool For Maintainability And Reusability.

“Overall, AscentialTest has been a fantastic automated tool, performing way better than any manual testing. The maintainability of test suites are super easy. Regressions take significantly fewer man-hours and UAT is much faster. We can conduct intensive performance testing, specifically volume and stress testing that was not possible before. Defect tracking has become much more streamlined.”

What we liked most: We appreciate that you don’t need to be a coder to use it. The snapshot feature to define app objects is incredibly helpful. However, the best thing is the maintainability. The ability to maintain is huge. If something changes in the app, only have to change it once within AscentialTest and it will update that object throughout the rest of the test. Also, enjoy their amazing customer service. Whenever there is an issue we are able to get on a call the same day and Zeenyx is always very patient and willing to help sort it out.

Very suitable program for automated testing of PowerBuilder applications

“Ascential Test is the most suitable program to test Powerbuilder applications. The basic tests are easy to compile in the editor, and with the help of scripts almost anything you want can be automated. The support from Zeenyx is excellent.”

What we liked most: The application has a logical structure and is fairly intuitive to use. Working with screenshots from which objects of the application can be collected for use in the test is very user-friendly. Although there are possibilities to always set up the interface optimally for a task, the many panels are often all used and so it is best to buy a large monitor. It is nice that all tests are in one single structured file. This also applies to all steps, objects, scripts, data and settings. In this way, an extensive set with a lot of tests and steps remains a well-organized whole. The files can be viewed and edited in the own script editor, but also in an editor such as Notepad ++, which is useful for example to look up something quickly. What I use a lot is the possibility to save values in a text file and read them again later. In this way, data can easily be passed on to a subsequent step or test. The help desk responds very quickly and adequately to questions and offers webinars where various practical matters are discussed.

Factors Considered:

Strong customer focus; Product functionality and performance

Reasons for Purchase:

Reasons for Purchase: Our applications are quite complex and contain a lot of configurable options so that the various customers can work well in their own country. Going through the basic flow for the regression test is an intensive job and it saves a lot of time if this can be done automatically.

Excellent product for Automation Testing

“I have great experience using Ascential Test, There are only few tools in the market which provides automation testing for power builder. I have found Ascential Test as best tool for power builder applications. Because, with other tools i had issues like recognition of object and they were too complicated to resolve for each of the object. But, with Ascential Test, it was much easier to find all objects and use them in my scripts. It saves a lot of time. Excellent support and compatibility with power builder objects.”

AscentialTest is a life saver for my team!

“I have worked with my lead QA person who set up the suite of tests and saw how flexible and powerful the product is. Tests can be run on an ad-hoc basis or as part of a suite of tests. Tests are relatively easy to set up and the product fully understands PowerBuilder which is the product we use for development and so makes it easier for us to test functionality. Support has been great and always friendly and helpful.”

Excellent product, particularly for PowerBuilder

“We have found the tool easy to use (after initial training), even for novices, and it works very well over PowerBuilder apps. Support from Zeenyx has been outstanding, they are extremely helpful and will spent whatever time is needed helping us get scripts working. I have found the tool slightly more difficult to get working nicely over a mudBlazor web app but, in general, our existing scripts have been portable”

What we liked most: Help guide is excellent, lots of ‘how to’ videos available, regular webcasts, excellent support.
