Ranorex Studio Customer Testimonial

The large amount of test data that had to be entered manually before over and over again can now be entered easily by Ranorex. This saves a lot of time for other testing efforts. Also, since the automation covers a large area of the software in a short time, bugs are discovered much earlier.
