What is most valuable?

I would say the entire Automation Anywhere RPA functionality is the most valuable part of the product because it helps me to automate the mundane interpretative task. That is where most of my team… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The product is improving our company in a number of different ways through the automation it helps us to create. I would say like the AR function is completely automated right now, but we are in the… more»

What needs improvement?

At least for our requirements, whatever version we have been using till now — I think the current version 11.3.2 — is fantastic and more than we could use as we grew with the product. Any additional… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They are already coming out with a community license, which is really good. That's something that I wish to have.

What other advice do I have?

If I were to rate this product on a scale of one to ten where ten is the best, I would definitely rate them nine. It is not a ten because of what may be my ignorance of the entire Automation Anywhere… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had looked at a lot of prominent players in the market and examined the different options as well, like Blue Prism and UiPath. Automation Anywhere was the one company who was flexible in terms of… more»

What is most valuable?

The bot is typically about twice as fast as a person and more accurate, as long as the data going in is good. That is the biggest advantage. I do like the feature if you… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our company has seen crazy growth over the last 10 to 12 years. We have been up 20 percent year-over-year for that amount of time. Without some of this automation, we… more»

What needs improvement?

Process Discovery is brand new. We are on 19.1 for it. I know on 19.2 that they change the architecture completely. From talking to some other companies that use this, it… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They license per robot and we have 25 robots. You get so many robot licenses and can allocate those licenses to either attended, unintended, or Process Discovery bots. If… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

This is the first RPA solution that my company has used. Someone in the business found the solution. We weren't in a position where we were actually looking for it. One of… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would really recommend the tool. I definitely see a lot of value with it. Just in the few release notes that I have read for some of the versions they've released since… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Blue Prism. We just briefly looked at some demos, then we even got pricing, but we were sold from the get-go with the Kryon tool because it was so… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to integrate between legacy systems is the most valuable feature. We use it mainly to replicate manual processes, where you just have to pull out data or pull… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to smooth out peak workloads. Because a lot of the period closures, like monthly and yearly closures, we work in peaks. Everything has to be done within a few… more»

What needs improvement?

We have looked at it with Citrix, and there are problems with it. Some of the new features coming will address it. We have been looking at Attended Robots, which result in… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We would like to see improvement around the licensing and multitenancy.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The product has a lot of backing from our director, who has been pushing the agenda. To be able to stay relevant, even as a government agency, we have to reduce our costs… more»

What other advice do I have?

Try out different vendors and their labs. See how it fits to the processes that you are trying to automate right now. Some applications are better at old mainframe… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Blue Prism and Kofax Kapow. The reason that we went with UiPath has a lot to do with scalability, as our IT supplier has committed to a multitenancy set… more»

What is most valuable?

The OCR is the best on the market. Even if you go for an open-source solution, it will never be as good as recognizing imagines as ABBYY. The is the main reason that we chose this product.

What needs improvement?

The automatic processing of invoices is not set up. We had to invent our own way of handling this. For example, if the invoice is not recognized successfully then it goes to a verification station for a person to verify whether everything is ok. But, there are no predefined solutions for this. They should have some basic types of different projects already in place, which would allow you to just… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to ask for case studies and examples in advance. Ask for real examples on how to set it up. One example might be for invoices, or for formulas that should be inside the product, and how to set them up quickly. We asked for automatic invoices and they said that they didn't do that yet. We had to put a great deal of effort into this, and it… more»
