3 reviewers had the following to say about ProdPerfect's pricing:
The pros section probably summarizes it best – but they are high quality tests that are maintained entirely by the ProdPerfect platform that cover our highest trafficked workflows and are kept up to to date. They are integrated perfectly into our pipelines and provide a final layer of safety in the deployment process at a cost that is significantly less than we would have spent to do it ourselves.
- Setup is hands on where you want it to be, hands off where you want it to be. ProdPerfect determined which tests would be the most effective, wrote and delivered them to us, but we got to decide exactly how they fit into our pipelines. - Test maintenance and writing is completely automatic – we know the outcome of the tests that are written but don't need to be involved in the creation or upkeep of them. - Tests are high quality – important workflows have been saved on multiple occasions now from being broken due to the suite catching issues that weren't caught by our unit tests. - Communication is top notch – very professional, quick to respond, friendly. - Multiple times cheaper than doing it ourselves. We would have either had to hire QA or have existing engineers context switch to writing regression tests alongside regular development and unit tests.
This sounds ridiculous but we really don't have any. We got exactly what we expected.

Rock solid. The implementation team is great, quick turnarounds, open to working together. It's a partnership - not a product.
ProdPerfect is my silent production guardian. We have it installed in our CI/CD pipeline and we run their auto-generated test suite on every commit. When that test suite fails (which means that we have bad code) - it stops our build process and alerts us that we've done something stupid - thus saving us from releasing broken code to production.
It's a struggle to come up with something that I don't like - instead, I would offer a small suggestion - in the onboarding process, their test suite needs to record how your users use your app so it can generate tests. It would be nice if there was a way their test suite could crawl your app or you could give it something like Gherkin test writeups and it could generate off that. That would get the time to value faster.

The experience has been extremely positive. Every step of the sales journey and onboarding has been surprisingly delightful: we were offered a free trial for our first month _after_ the tests had been written and integrated into our CI/CD tool, the account manager on our team has been down to Earth and accommodating to some of our shifting needs, and their tech team has been really responsive to feedback on how the integration could be improved and worked with us on testing out new features which we liked. It's also worth noting that ProdPerfect hangs out in a shared Slack channel with us, which has a bot reporting test runs that pass (or sometimes fail, whoopsies). In that channel we can click on a report to view a video of what went wrong, talk to the ProdPerfect team to communicate if it was an intentional change or not, and pretty quick any changes to our tests can get rolled out and we'll kick off another run. It really feels like we have an integrated QA team that has successfully caught a handful of issues for us before they make it to production. Definitely worth it in my opinion.
The worst part about setting up an outsourced QA team is training them on the flows users go through - simultaneously how users behave and where they are interacting with the product. The highest value proposition of ProdPerfect to me is the tracking beacon that lets them not only figure out what flows to monitor from the start, but as we launch feature changes, ProdPerfect notices the change in behavior and builds out the next suite of tests. It's incredibly hands off but offering us continued and accurate protection.
The data viz tool to look at how users are behaving on the site could use some tuning. It's a bit information overload and unintuitive to manipulate to make it useful. Luckily, I have never had to actually use it and after talking to the team at ProdPerfect I was relieved to know I didn't ever actually have to use it - and they're working on a better way to represent the heaps of data they have on our user behavior already.
