Highlights
The solution is easy to learn and with it, it's easy to replicate knowledge.
Metabots are useful when connecting to websites or to forms with objects that need to be captured.
Its integration with source control is very refreshing. There could be a little bit more maturity around how to do some of the features, but not having to go outside the app, not having a separate set of procedures, allows you to check in and check out right from within the app. You can make edits and uploads and undo your checkouts.
It really does have a great dashboard. It has Bot Insight, it has meta bots, and IQ Bots. It has so many features where it can read a file and loop.
MetaBot is the most valuable feature. Other products have robotic functionality but MetaBot is a kind of functionality by which code is created... so business users who do not have coding knowledge can drag and drop.
We have seen more efficient processing and less number of errors due to quality control.
We have staff who have been moved out of the mundane tasks and are now doing value-added activities.
