Ranorex Studio Customer Testimonial

Why did you choose Ranorex Studio?

Since we have some legacy VB Windows forms, there is no tool which supports that other than Ranorex Studio. As we know .NET, It is very easier for us to automate using user code. Jenkins integration is very helpful for us to run the tests remotely. TestRail integration is another useful part of Ranorex. We can easily share the TestRail report to anybody using email.
