testRigor vs. Functionize

Are you searching for an intelligent automation tool that can reduce testing efforts, cut costs, and expedite test completion? Below, you’ll find a comprehensive comparison between testRigor and Functionize to aid in your decision-making. Explore and determine which tool aligns best with your needs.

Why testRigor?

See our summary table and decide for yourself.
Generative AI-Based Test Creation
You have the ability to generate entire automated tests based on test case titles using testRigor's Generative AI engine. Just provide the title of the test case and watch generative AI create the test steps in seconds.
Ease of Use

Author test cases in plain English with testRigor, eliminating the need for coding or knowledge of automation. Use the same UI locators (text) in test cases as they appear on the screen.

Functionize employs 'Architect', a Chrome extension, to record user actions and generate test steps based on these actions/clicks. 'Architect' needs to be installed separately.

When using Functionize, users are required to click on the UI to produce each action and verification test step. Excessive clicks can result in a less satisfying user experience. Additionally, there's a learning curve involved; one cannot simply dive in and start creating test cases with 'Architect' immediately.

While Functionize offers NLP-based test case creation, it's not as straightforward as testRigor's generative AI-based test case generation.
Supported Applications
Desktop Web Testing

testRigor supports desktop web, mobile web, desktop native app, and mobile app testing for Android and iOS, i.e., basically everything. Use either emulators or actual physical devices for testing, as your choice.

Functionize supports only web testing on desktop and mobile through emulators.

End-to-End Testing
Data-driven Testing
Cross-browser Testing
API Testing
Continuous Testing
Database Testing
Visual Testing
Test Case Creation Features
Supported Testing Types
Behavior-Driven Test Generation
Both tools allow behavior-driven test generation via NLP support.
Reusable Rules/ Subroutines

testRigor and Functionize both support reusable rules.

However, Functionize requires recording the test steps as Page Objects. Recording and then enabling the Page Objects requires many clicks/steps from the user.

testRigor saves the reusable rules separately in plain English. Simply write the name of the rules in the test case to use it. This approach is more convenient and user-friendly.
Email Testing

testRigor supports sending emails, receiving emails, sending attachments, and validating these three scenarios using plain English easily.

Functionize supports email testing but requires many user clicks since it records the user's actions.
Multi-Factor Authentication(MFA)
Both tools support MFA via SMS and email.
Captcha Resolution
testRigor helps automate image-to-text and Google Re-Captcha easily. Functionize doesn’t support captcha resolution.
SMS Support

testRigor supports sending SMS using Twilio. You can validate if the SMS is sent, delivered, or failed, and its contents.

Functionize also provides SMS support.
Phone Call Support

testRigor uses Twilio to provide phone call support. It can validate that a call is ringing, answered, etc.

Functionize does not offer phone call support.
Geolocation Testing
testRigor works with geo locations and can emulate “moving” the device. Functionize does not provide any geolocation support.
File Upload
Both testRigor and Functionize support file upload features.
Audio Testing
testRigor enables audio testing by recording, comparing, playing, and validating audio files in tests with simple commands such as check that audio is playing.
Downloaded File Testing

testRigor verifies file downloads and validates their contents using simple commands such as check that downloaded file "sampleFile.pdf" contains "Lorem Ipsum". Supported file types are PDFs, CSVs, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and more.

Functionize requires training via “Architect” for actions and validation steps, which is not as convenient.
Video Testing

With testRigor, for example, you can validate that the video is playing with the simple command check that video is playing.

Functionize has no support for video testing.
Test Execution Features
Run on Physical Devices

testRigor supports emulator-based testing and on physical devices(via third-party providers).

Functionize supports emulator based-testing only.
Parallel Test Runs
testRigor and Functionize support parallel test runs to achieve high-speed execution.
Customized Test Data

testRigor generates data based on detected field type (we support about 50 types), and you can provide your test data. testRigor generates random data conforming to a specific format every time the test runs.

Functionize also includes support for customized test data.
Reporting Features
Screenshots and Reports
Both testRigor and Functionize provide good reporting features.
Recorded Video of Test Execution
testRigor provides recorded video of test execution by default. Functionize requires enabling this feature on demand to start recording.
Both testRigor and Functionize provide self-healing capabilities.
Free Trial

testRigor provides unlimited free public access, as well as a 14-day trial.

Setting up a Functionize trial is a lengthy process, offering just a 14-day free trial period. After signing up, you must contact their Account Manager to have the trial provisioned.
