Ript Labs

Introduction

This case study of Ript Labs is based on a July 2017 survey of TestRail customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“The value is incredible. Efficiency executing daily / weekly tests, simplicity of usability, UI friendliness, ability to integrate a broad number of 3rd party tools. So far only one of the Test Management tools that completely meets our needs.”
