Spiratest Review

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Well besides the cost, the over all experience is great!!! The interface has nothing to be complained about.

Pros:

Excellent product!!! So easy to organize and manage your team. Creating requirements is quite simple . We can create software requirements and insert child features in an instant. Managing the priorities for your teams testing is a breeze with color coded priorities. Observing and handling your teams test steps is made easier to handle with the color coded labeling.

Cons:

The only thing that I can say is that it is expensive costing over $9k per year!! Also, you have to lie $40 a month for each concurrent user.

Thanks for the response, we're glad you like the product and features. On the pricing side, we are one of the few tools to price by concurrent user and we try and keep our prices to be one of the more affordable in the industry. Also the price per concurrent user decreases the more users you purchase.

SpiraTest, a one stop shop for Quality Management

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: As the company's SpiraTest administrator, I have been able to present the highlights to new users in 30 minute sessions, and that's how easy it is to get new users started on using the suite. The software is easy to use, but its only limitation is its lack of third-[arty integration to some popular software packages such as RemedyForce.

Pros:

SpiraTest is a little-known Quality Management suite, but it packs a lot under the hood. It is readily customizable, has an easily navigable UI, and its main modules are Planning )Requirements, Planning Board, Releases, Documents), Testing (Test Cases, Test Sets, Test Runs, Automation Hosts, and Configurations), Developing (Source Code, Commits, and Pull Requests) and Tracking (Incidents, Risks, Tasks, and Resources). The reports and graphs are intuitive and can be exported to a variety of formats for sharing and dissemination.

Cons:

The one glaring feature lacking in this software package is the limited of third-party integration it supports. Currently SpiraTest doesn't have a plug-in for Remedy Integration, although there is one for SalesForce.

Love version 4 but we are unable to work with version 5

2.0 8 years ago

Comments: My rating above is for Spiratest version 5. We have used and loved Spiratest for the last three years but we are considering stop using after seeing version 5 features. We upgraded to version 5 months ago and we have to downgrade it because we found it unusable. I was hoping something has gone wrong with the upgrade and we started a trial version hosted by Inflecta so we could create a brand new project and work with any problems and issues with tech support. It turns out the original upgrade was working fine and what we thought were bugs turned out to be features. We can't work with projects that force our test cases to be ordered alphabetically. To upgrade to version 5 will cause us to spend a lot of time creating custom fields and assigning numbers so we can see the test cases in the order we like. In addition, we will need to write code so we can have a report that doesn't list the test cases in alphabetical order. It doesn't make sense to us to spend time and resources trying to make the new version work like the previous version. I am not opposed to software changes and I am always happy to see improvements in new versions but this is a showstopper for us. We are in the process of deciding whether we need to keep to paying our annual fee if we are not going to continue upgrading the software. Sorry, we loved your software but you lost us here.

Pros:

The colors

Cons:

Hi Begonia Sorry that you didn't like the changes in v5.0. Unfortunately for every user that liked the way the old folders and test cases worked, a much larger number really didn't like them and found them cumbersome and confusing. That's why we did the redesign in v5.0 and most of our users are much happier. But as the old saying goes, you cannot please everyone! If you really need it to work the old way, then probably staying on v4.0 makes the most sense.

SpiraTest: Test and automation management tool

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: My overall experience has been good. It was one of tool which is easy to learn and get the work done.

Pros:

The way we can manage many project at a single place. The overall tracking of testing tasks. The defect management and tracking the defect from the time of raising to fixed, re tested and closure.

Cons:

The Automation capability could have been much more better. The UI can also be improved a little

Test Management Service for Modern Ways of Working

4.0 4 years ago

Comments: It's a well-developed testing solution with a price model that beats many other product hands down. If you have testers who walk on to cover a project, then go back to their day jobs between testing cycles, give SpiraTest another look.

Pros:

I like the fact that a cloud-hosted version of the software is available.

Cons:

It can be a bit too rigid in the way it expects testing to be performed, which can be a barrier to getting things done. If you don't use the software the way they expect, it can be difficult to work around it.
