qMetry vs Zephyr Comparison in 2024

Deciding between Test Management Tools is a challenge. There are several excellent free tools, as well as paid solutions available. The three we will compare today are qMetry vs Zephyr, along with AccelaTest. While the three are all great options, deciding which software tool is best for your QA team will come down to cost, your QA process, and team demands.

Summary of Comparison

Before getting into the review of each of the test case management tools, we will analyze the core features of the test management tools and how they will help your software testing efforts.

What is each of the tools going to cost?

qMetry vs Zephyr both require a monthly subscription. In contrast, the test case management features in AccelaTest are completely free for teams.

The pricing for each test case management tool is as follows:

  • qMetry: Price not transparent, quote required
  • Zephyr: price starts at $10 per user per month
  • AccelaTest: price starts at $0.00 per user per month

Additionally, both of these solutions do offer a free trial. In the pricing arena, AccelaTest is the clear winner for being the only no-cost solution that supports your entire testing process.

How do the tools rank as a Test Case Management Solution?

Test Case Management tools should allow you to create test suites, test plans, offer integration abilities and support your software development teams. Fortunately, all three contenders deliver on their ability to manage test cases and do not have many differences.

How do the tools rank on the ability to Manage Test Runs?

The ability to run your test cases and report on the failed test cases is important. The contender lagging the most in this arena is Zephyr as they do not support parameterization. Once all of the enhancements are complete, AccelaTest will be the clear winner in this category.
