It’s not easy to get customer reviews on ITCentral Station. The software review site insists on calling each and every reviewer. Here at RadView, we have hundreds of supportive customers. We collaborate with our “fans” and produce case studies and surveys.
Getting busy DevOps and QA managers on the phone isn’t easy! And what did our customers recently say to ITCentral Station about their experience with WebLOAD?
It’s a Pretty Strong Product From a Load-Testing Perspective, and Easy To Use
Dr. James Logan is QA Manager at Georgia Tech. Here’s what he told ITCentral Station about WebLOAD:
“From my perspective, the most valuable feature is the ability to test APIs. Another benefit is how the correlation engine turns a lot of the dynamic contents into variables. That’s a real big thing for us.
Technical support is responsive. To take it a step further, I’ve participated in several betas, including the first new-look redesign, so I got to see the product before it was actually introduced to the customers. They actually went back and made design changes based on my feedback. Back in 2003, they used to do recording at the protocol layer. Then they switched to the more interactive interface; both functional and load scripts, and decided to go back to the protocol layer recording. They added mobile, and they added a more robust correlation engine, so I got a chance to look at that, as well.
I made some suggestions to the new-look redesign as we went through beta, and they incorporated some of my feedback. Specifically, I suggested a change to the statistical-cause analysis component, and I thought they were very responsive.”
Best of all, Dr. Logan speaks of WebLOAD’s superb value:
“RadView WebLOAD, HP LoadRunner, and other load tools pretty much provide the same metrics, but if you’re in a situation where cost is an issue, then I would recommend the RadView tool because the other tools could be cost-prohibitive.”

WebLOAD’s Integration With Amazon Web Services Allowed Us to Test Our Registration Process
WebLOAD allows you to generate load on premise or in the cloud. Kelley Baran, a Director of Administrative Services at a large university, uses WebLOAD to test student registration in the cloud.
“It integrates with Amazon Web Services (AWS). That’s definitely the number one most valuable feature for me. We installed a brand new Oracle hardware server rack system on our enterprise platform.
WebLOAD allowed us to test our registration process and to register thousands of students, many of them within the first minutes registration was open. It was important that we were able to test our hardware prior to the event occurring.”
And what about customer support?
“Customer service is excellent. They’re very responsive and willing to work extra hours. In the first couple of hours that we were up and running, they taught us how to implement it and to figure out and negotiate AWS. They were excellent.”
