The decision fell in favour of „QF-Test“ by QFS.
The main reason for this decision is the fact that QF-Test is much less developer-oriented than the other products. However, QF-Test still grants the necessary and also sufficient flexibility regarding changes in the GUI in test. Another decisive advantage of QFTest to be mentioned is its clearly arranged view and its - after some (although slightly longer) familiarization - also intuitive interface. The display of the test results and the available reports completed the overall impression positively.
*Remark: A developer-oriented solution (mainly script-based) is not necessarily a disadvantage, but we have been looking for a product usable without advanced programming skills if possible.
