How ACCELQ differs from Traditional Test Automation tools
I am sure, like me, you would have also used several different test automation tools. So, why ACCELQ? How is ACCELQ different from other test automation tools in the market? I will be honest with you and give you my opinion based upon my experience of exploring this tool. ACCELQ is different from other conventional tools in terms of the following:

Have you got impressed with the solutions given by ACCELQ? If not, keep reading. By the end of this blog, you will surely want to check out the official site: https://www.accelq.com/. However, there is one more important aspect which I would like to talk about.
Manual Testing with ACCELQ with the power of Automation – Yes, you read it right. My favorite feature, which I have liked and loved so far for agile test management, is ACCELQ with Manual; however, I am exploring all other valuable options provided by this fantastic tool.
ACCELQ with Manual feature provides a dashboard where you can view Test Suites and Scenarios. A test suite is a set of tests that you can view in Dashboard. You can also view the different status of your test along with each test in the Dashboard. For example, how many test cases got passed, how many test cases got failed, etc. In addition, it provides information like what is the name of the test suite, who executed it, and time taken, etc.
Test Execution Summary
It also shows the last execution overview. In addition, it shows the severity of the defect like low, medium, or high under the perspective section. It also keeps track of the entire execution history. For example, if you want to view the test execution history of the last seven days, you can select the option, and it shows you the result immediately. You can view the test execution history by filtering on the date range as well.
This feature of ACCELQ integrates with other tools for requirement traceability and defect tracking. You can select a particular defect to view the detailed explanation about the defect logged by a tester in Jira Software. It will show to which test the defect is related. It offers test coverage with requirements as well. We can see if we have missed any user story/requirement for writing a test case.
Test Team Progress
You can see the progress of the entire team and how the sprint is progressing. There are different ways to write test cases in ACCELQ – Manual. You can import your tests. You can write it directly in the tool or import it from external sources like MS-Excel. You can write test steps in order and view the run accordingly.
You can configure parameters in ACCELQ-Manual. Each test case gives you an option to configure your test by choosing the appropriate option from the provided drop-down. You can choose the environment as per your requirement. You can add tags to scenarios or test cases. You can send notifications to the concerned person by providing their email address. There is much more to the tool.
While ACCELQ Manual is Free for Life for Individuals, other products would have a 14 day Free Trial period, after which they have a per-user annual billing. Please refer to https://www.accelq.com/pricing for more details on the pricing.
You will notice significant lower maintenance using the ACCELQ tool regardless of using it from a manual testing perspective or automation way.
I hope you are safe & healthy where ever you are! I wish you a great day ahead!
