There are a few fundamental differences when managing test cases in TestMonitor or PractiTest.
TestMonitor uses test suites to organize test cases. PractiTest uses tests (test cases) without any hierarchy. You can assign tests to a user by using test sets. A test set in PractiTest is similar to a test run in TestMonitor. A test set in PractiTest can be run multiple times, a test run in TestMonitor can be run one single time. TestMonitor uses milestones to organize test runs, which can either be a sprint, a new release test, or another major project milestone. TestMonitor is more suitable for large amounts of test cases (100+) involving larger test teams. PractiTest uses custom filters to organize tests and test sets.
TestMonitor includes a sidebar which is revealed when you select a test case: an easy way to quickly navigate through your test cases and edit them, when needed. Both tools offer a batch edit mode for editing multiple test cases at once.
There are some major differences between the user interfaces of both test tools. PractiTest presents each of its features on a single screen, which can be overwhelming and confusing, especially at the beginning. TestMonitor offers a “layered” and less distracting interface that only shows common features. It optionally reveals more advanced actions by using the configuration options.

PractiTest makes it easy to plan a test set per tester. When you have a large test team this might be a cumbersome task. In TestMonitor it is possible to assign multiple test cases to multiple testers within a single test run.
PractiTest combines creating and running test runs, which is traditionally aimed at the experienced tester. Less experienced testers might be overloaded with the amount of information and options such a screen provides. TestMonitor distinguishes creating and running test runs. The tester is provided with a personalized overview of test runs assigned to him. This overview allows the tester to focus and review the testing progress and start test runs.
Both PractiTest and Testmonitor use notifications for planning and running test runs. Both test management tools are capable of sending multiple notifications: when a tester is added to a test run, when the start date of a test run is reached, and when a test run has been completed by the tester.
TestMonitor and PractiTest both have an integrated issue tracker. They also offer extensive integrations with third-party issue trackers. Both offer integrations with Jira and Slack. PractiTest even has a 2-way integration with Jira. TestMonitor offers integrations with TopDesk, Asana and Azure Devops. PractiTest is available on Zapier. All the apps available on Zapier can be integrated with PractiTest. TestMonitor is still working on a Zapier integration.
TestMonitor and PractiTest are two powerful test management tools that offer an end-to-end test methodology including issue tracking. PractiTest has a lot of customization possibilities including custom filters and fields. PractiTest mainly focuses on test management for developers. TestMonitor advocates end users as the perfect testers. TestMonitor facilitates in a quick project start by offering standard project templates. With a single click, you can reuse a test case or plan a new test run.
