Why Customers Moved to NeoLoad from 
LoadRunner & Performance Center

Replaced LoadRunner with NeoLoad to performance test 50 applications quarterly. Reduced time to write and maintain test scripts by 60%.

Completed the same six-week-long project within the LoadRunner environment in less than two weeks using NeoLoad.

Scripted tests using NeoLoad in 1 day, down from 4 days to write the same scripts in LoadRunner.

Business Benefits

Ship High Quality, Faster

Create test scripts more quickly, across all skill types without requiring expensive performance engineering experts, update scripts automatically as code changes and optimize performance test infrastructure. The result?  Major cost savings in resources, time and cold hard cash.

Control the Experience

Ensure your business applications are reliable and meet your growing customer needs by opening up performance testing across all groups from waterfall to agile teams and make everyone a performance tester regardless of skills. Control the quality of all code before business applications are released into the market and know when you can trust the test results. Go means go.

Break the Silos

Break down silos in your organization and move your Dev, QA and Operations teams into modern testing approaches so that you catch performance issues early when they are easier to fix and the bugs do not adversely impact user adoption or the bottom line. Cross collaborate by sharing and communicating test results, reports, test infrastructure and test asset reuse.
