Often we get asked the question, how do you determine the Return on Investment (ROI) of purchasing and using SpiraTest to manage a team's requirements, test cases and defects. If the organization in question is using another tool (for example Micro Focus / HP ALM) it is easy, you simply compare features and license cost. However what is the ROI and business case for teams that are using manual methods, using MS-Word and MS-Excel instead of a tool? This is a bit trickier to calculate, so don't worry - we've put together a handy spreadsheet to help you out!Read More

We always want to make things easy for our customers, and many of our recent customers have been looking to move to SpiraTest for their test management because they are excited about the new exploratory testing features, easy to use drag-and-drop user interface, integrated requirements management, and the powerful reporting and analytics. They are also concerned that their old legacy test management tool will no longer be supported or developed due to a recent company acquisition (TestRail by IDERA, HPE by Micro Focus, etc.). So to augment our line up of migration tools that we already have for HP ALM, Microsoft Test Manager, Excel, Word and Google Sheets, we have added a new migration tool to streamline switching from TestRail to SpiraTest.Read More

Over the years, we have received countless requests to introduce a feature allowing users to "hand-off" a test run that is already in progress from one tester to another. This lets person A do some testing and then dynamically hand it over to person B who can finish off the test run. In the current version (5.1) you have to start a new test execution. Well now.... despite us telling customers that this feature would probably not be included in Spiratest v5.2, we have some good news and some better news:Read More
