Trial

Exploring a software's capabilities, mapping your requirements to its features and getting your team members to participate in the evaluation takes around 2-3 weeks, especially since you will not be doing this full-time and you may also be evaluating other tools in parallel.

Managing Test Cases

A good test case management tool facilitates in writing effective and expressive test cases. It also enables you to organise your test cases effectively, make modifications to multiple test cases quickly, and helps you recover from mistakes.

Managing Test Runs

In most cases, you will not be testing the entire system. A practical test management software will help you quickly create test runs from a subset of the test cases. It will also help you distribute the testing workload equitably amongst the test team. During testing, the workflow for the tester should be efficient - they should see their instructions, record their result and move to the next test case efficiently.

Dynamic Integrations

Many test management tools offer native integrations with other apps. However, they are restrictive — you like 60% but want to customize the remaining 40%, but you can't — which makes the entire integration useless. You are forced to write your own. Further, in the future, you may want to switch tools or add new ones, e.g., a time tracking app, and if your QA testing tool doesn't integrate with it, then you are in trouble. A better way is to integrate your software with integration automation tools like Zapier or Integromat. These tools allow you to build your own integrations precisely the way you want without writing a single line of code. It also makes you future-proof by ensuring that you can integrate with thousands of other popular applications.

Quick Summary

Tuskr SpiraTest

Inflectra SpiraTest is a comprehensive test case management software. From interactions with SpiraTest users, we hear three main issues: clunky user interface, below par Jira™ integration, and high prices. A clumsy user experience makes users unhappy and reduces productivity. It also makes it challenging to train new users leading to increased training costs. It also slows down testing as testers struggle with navigation. Pricing is another relevant factor. Inflectra SpiraTest starts at around $36/user per month, and even though you do get volume discounts, pricing remains on the higher side. However, on the positive side, the pricing is for concurrent users.

Tuskr™ is intuitive without compromising on power — it takes about ten minutes to train someone who has never used any test management software before. We don't do different things but do better in terms of features. For example, you can drag-drop image files or even copy screenshots from your clipboard. This functionality, which is the key in writing expressive test cases, is not intuitive in SpiraTest. Our interface is also much more intuitive and pleasing. In terms of pricing, there is no comparison — we are $5/user per month. For Indian customers, the price is even lower at ₹250/user per month. If you sign up for the yearly plan, the prices will reduce even further.

A natural question is - "so what am I missing in Tuskr"? In this article, we compared the two tools a level deeper to help you get a good idea about their similarities and differences. However, the best way to experience these two test management tools is to try them out. Tuskr and SpiraTest both offer a free 30-day trial.
