Bottom Line

Both PractiTest and qTest are Agile compatible Test Management tools that offer end-to-end coverage of the entire QA process: Requirements, Tests and Test Case management, Issue Management and Reporting.

While qTest offers both cloud and server (in-house) hosting for its software, PractiTest is a SaaS-only solution.

qTest’s different modules work in different tabs and are not all available in all pricing plans. With PractiTest, all modules are in the same location, helping users concentrate on the actual work. Both PractiTest pricing plans are transparent and include all modules.

PractiTest offers an internal kanban task board that helps manage your projects in a more efficient manner.

PractiTest’s unique hierarchical filters make it possible to define parameters for test cases and test sets, avoid duplicate bugs, and offer a smarter way to easily manage all project information.

So who is better?

When it comes to ROI and comparing the cost vs. benefits, qTest is much more expensive and doesn’t have any major additional takeaways. PractiTest costs less and brings more value to test managers and the development process. Add PractiTest’s all-time-available free-of-charge support and PractiTest takes the lead
