We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The automation provided by this solution has saved us a lot of time."
"They've now included the code so we can add some additional code. That's good."
"We have been able to reduce the amount of repetitive tasks completed by operations, allowing individuals to move onto tasks which cannot yet be automated."
"Very comprehensive with different platforms especially SAP and Oracle EBS."
"The digital worker is interesting."
"In Automation Anywhere we liked the drag-and-drop and easily stitching the recording of mouse control and keyboard controls."
"Automation Anywhere is excellent for integrating with other solutions. It provides the ability to leverage the APIs of third-party solutions. We use some of the already built-in MetaBots to then scrape the data and manipulate independent data that we need in order to integrate with other third-party solutions."
"The solution has removed humans making errors while increasing our time savings. We now have a lot of more efficiencies in our process."
"We are making less mistakes and have more metrics available to understand what our problems are. Now, we can do root cause analysis and have less noise in the system during the process."
"It would be very helpful to have a simple and extensive training guide, or training model, to help learn how to work with the product."
"I'd like to see the OCR feature be perfected. Today we get an accuracy ratio from OCR of around 40 percent to 50 percent only."
"I would like to see more stability around scheduling a bot to run headless."
"I think the pricing model should be more flexible."
"I would like to have a bot as a service platform on AA Cloud. This would minimize the installation process, and we wouldn't need to have all the hardware to support the platform in-house."
"Understanding what we wanted to do the tool after setup, that was complex."
"I would like more with OCR and data capture. We are partnering with IBM to help bridge this gap, but Automation Anywhere should continue to expand on their product line and provide these capabilities, as well."
"I would like to see more bots available right out-of-the-box in the SAP area. For example, if you take the overall OTC in our organization, we have to contact 15 teams. Even if we provide one big bot for the OTC, it won't work. It will not be used by one person. So if there could be more specific bots out-of-the-box, that would be really helpful."
"I would like more integration into the entire Microsoft Suite of products, not just Excel. Companies use all of Microsoft products at the same time, and being good at just one Microsoft tool is a limiting factor. Being able to use Microsoft Excel, Access, and Outlook together and have them integrated (as standard) into the tool would be very useful, especially when you go into attended automation."
"If I compare it with Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere is cheaper. Blue Prism is very costly. Automation Anywhere's pricing follows the market, not less and not more."
"It is expensive. Automation Anywhere has reduced the price slightly, as we have grown. However, the price is still excessive enough that we are engaged in PoCs on other tools."
"Cost is the biggest area in need of improvement for Automation Anywhere. Annually it's $250,000. That's what deterred us right away."
"We save 34,000 hours of time per year and have recouped up to $6000 in lost revenue."
"We have a three-year contract with Automation Anywhere."
"If you are looking into Automation Anywhere, get the Community Edition and play with it."
"We have reduced our headcount, approximately 200 to 300 employees, by eliminating manual, repetitive work. It provides profit to the business."
"I'm not sure what the monthly licensing cost is, as that is taken care of by another team, but I would say it's around $100,000."
