Ranorex Customer Review

4.5/5 Stars

Please describe how your organization uses Ranorex.

We have a test suite that runs every day looking for defects; we also test SAP against the HTML invoice output that is created. We have some bespoke configurations which we test against on the Web.

Would you recommend Ranorex, and if so, why?

Yes, this is a tool I had never used before and was my first step into automation testing. 2.5 years later and I know far more about the product, and still want to learn more!
