Ax2012 Testing

Today I was just surfing internet and found one useful axapta functional testing solution from AXeptance company.
The solution is available in Ax2009,AX2012,Ax2012 R2.
Please have a look into the below youtube video, where u can find the demo.

Intially it looks like a simple Task recorder functionality which is there in Ax2009 version.But I found that there are lots of things this tool is capturing while running the business process scenario.
1.Every step parameter values and type.
2.Skip the step.
3.Delay and add timer.
you can run the test script in different m/c or terminal and catch the log of the processes.
