Summary

Both PractiTest and TestRail solutions are great tools for Agile oriented teams; have a variety of integration options with bug trackers, automation tools, API etc; and are easy to set up and use.

However, PractiTest offers more options for complex test management with advanced customizable workflow; unique data organization using Hierarchical filters; Traceability between requirements, tests and issues; external dashboards and more. All of the above means that PractiTest provides more insight and control of project progression with both pinpoint and broad resolution of all testing stages.

Another major differentiating factor between them is that while PractiTest is it’s own “stand alone” solution for the entire QA process, TestRail relays on external integrations to accomplish full testing coverage for both requirement management and Issue/ Bug management.

Why TestRail?

  • Relatively cheaper
  • Has both Cloud and Server solutions
  • Easy intuitive use

Why PractiTest?

  • Internal Requirements and Issue/bug management
  • Traceability between requirements, tests and issues
