We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"While using ABBYY FlexiCapture we did not use the generic models that they do have for invoice and purchase orders. For one of the use-cases, the document was exactly the purchase order, but we are not using that generic model. We are creating the model from Scratch. However, if I was to compare ABBYY FlexiCapture with other IA tools, the machine learning and how the extraction is done is far better than competitors. This allows a lot less effort for the development.""The most valuable feature is the ability to capture data from documents with different formats.""The most valuable feature is the ability to scale for big processes. We are able to process 1 million pages a day. Its accuracy is also very nice. It is a good feature that they have. It is an independent platform, which is its biggest advantage as compared to other solutions. It is also very stable and powerful. It is 100% on time.""We are able to extract details from a PDF and put them into a CSV. It is able to extract the details that we are looking for. We have the Machine Learning feature to extract the data with respect to the position of the field.""The machine learning capability is pretty good.""We have found the solution to be stable so far.""The whole idea of designing your own templates is pretty much the bread and butter of the product, but that's really the best part because you can design flexible templates.""Verification station is a really good feature. It allows part-owners to be able to take a look at what comes out of the tool after a document, such as an invoice, is run through ABBYY. It also allows them to update it if there are any mistakes. So, it kind of gives them a little more control over what goes through the system and lessens the errors."

"It is more secure for complex implementations.""I would say that the stability of Blue Prism is superior to any of the competing products because of the maintainability of the features and the openness of the tool.""Blue Prism is able to scale up at an enterprise-level. It's what I used when I was working for a big bank in Belgium.""The solution is very complete. It's a good solution, for the kind of features that they offer.""The most valuable feature of Blue Prism's Virtual Workforce is that it is quite stable.""The reusability of the solution is excellent. It's a superior feature - far superior to any other tool on the market.""Once it does the monitor, it collects the respective data and creates an output that is required for reconfiguration.""This solution comes with a lot of good features."

Cons
"Machine learning needs to be improved.""Even though the training works, it's not as good as it is made out to be.""The is a long time between application updates.""The generic models have a lot of areas to improve. In our experience, we are not able to get good results in the generic models. From a developer's point of view, there could be more improvement if the source code is available on a broader scope""They should improve the RESTful API side of this solution. Currently, fully RESTful API is not available in the on-prem version, which is really a problem, and we have to work around this limitation. The cloud version already has a fully RESTful API, but the on-prem version doesn't have a fully RESTful API, which is a big mistake. It is easy to solve, but they aren't solving it quicker. They are taking a long time. Nowadays, most people don't go to the interface. They like to use RESTful API.""The recognition intelligence could improve by having more details in the documents. There are limitations with the forms, templates, and manuscripts.""Could be simplified, particularly the UI.""Not a ten because sometimes some documents have handwritten data. If this improved, I would rate it a ten out of ten."

"I personally would like the solution to be supporting more languages.""They should improve the user-friendliness and they should change their business model.""Selecting the right business processes that are stable enough to automate can be challenging.""The pricing of the solution could be improved. It's a bit expensive right now. They should work to make it more competitive.""The vendor does not make their pricing clear when you are searching for it, which is something that needs to be improved.""Lacking advance features like CIO and optical character recognition""The pricing was a bit high, from what I understand. That might have played a role in the decision to migrate to another solution.""It takes a while to get up and running."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For us, the price is reasonable.""The price of this ABBYY FlexiCapture is a bit expensive and the price is based on how many documents have been captured. For example, one or two million captures.""Most of our customers have purchased an annual license and if you have multiple developers from other companies, you can assign the license on a monthly basis to developers.""It is more on the reasonable side as compared to the competition that I am aware of. I'm not an expert on pricing schemes for all sorts of things, but when we offer them a solution, we like to say we're agnostic. So, we offer more than one solution when possible. Amongst the ones that we've offered, ABBYY usually is the more reasonable solution on a big scale. On a small scale, they're all pretty similar. As far as I understand, you pay a license for a number of pages, and that's pretty much it. It has just the rate per page, and it decreases as you scale.""It is expensive as compared to UiPath. We pay for the licensing and the page count.""Its price is a little bit high and can be lower. Its licensing is very expensive. I don't remember exactly, but for each page, it is about four or seven cents, which is too expensive.""Its price should be a little lower. It is a lot higher than the competition, and if they just break the gap a little, then more people might jump onto their product. Their price is definitely a deterrent in the few cases that I remember. They have monthly and yearly options, and if you want, they also have per project and per page options. They do charge extra for different types of installation. They have the standalone, which is pretty straightforward and a lot cheaper than the server installation. Server installation gives you a lot more, and it gives you control over the environment."

"The licensing structure is complex and the minimum contract length is three years.""Pricing can be negotiated in situations where there will be heavy usage.""We pay about $15,000 per quarter in licensing costs. We don't have to pay for any other extra costs. There isn't, for example, an extra cost for technical support. We just pay the licensing.""There are many RPA solutions available from different vendors and the pricing for Blue Prism is competitive.""Annual licensing costs were somewhere between $5,000 - $10,000 for the development tool. For the control tower, I think fees were about $50,000 annually."
