Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The Automation Anywhere software has improved our organization by moving us into the RPA climate and allowing us to save on our overhead.""Since we can register multiple bot runners in one control room, and we can easily monitor and re-run bots when necessary, it is convenient for me.""This boosts the customer confidence and experience. When the customer experience increases, obviously sales will increase.""It is highly scalable on cloud and virtual machines.""By using SNMP configurations and Excel, I was able to read the mail. I used this functionality to categorize the fabric, then I used this information to correlate the value to Jira along with Excel.""I utilize all the commands provided by Automation Anywhere, such as all the recorders. I use these commands to develop my processes and bots.""The training and resources for this tool are very good. They are so simple that anyone can easily learn it. One of the tool values is its ease of use.""We have the MetaBot feature, which is valuable because we can read reusable components in the MetaBot, then use them as a framework."

"The solution is easy to use and easy to apply.""The entire backend system structure is something that I found really valuable.""The solution has very good processes. It's very easy to deploy and has good reviews on it. It offers good automation and the solution has very good developers working on it.""From a solution standpoint, screen capture and tight integration with Outlook are valuable features.""The most valuable feature is the rapid deployment of multiple bots.""The ability to drag and drop various components and the customizability are good features.""Automation Anywhere has good document extraction features where it can learn patterns.""They recently released the newest version that has a good program flow, quality, and blueprints that are all good improvements to the automation. They also have good integration with SAP."

Cons
"I would like to see a built-in read-only role for the control room so that the bot creators can log in and monitor the production environment without any auditing concerns.""I have noticed that after the bots have been delivered to run in a production environment, there are issues in terms of quality and performance.""Automation Anywhere is a tool. It is not able to go ahead and extract the hand-written documents. Most of the automation tools that we have in the market are not able to get an accuracy of close to 80 to 90 percent on hand-written documents. So, I'm eagerly looking at a release from Automation Anywhere, wherein they could plug in an LP or look at some sort of a platform which could convert hand-written documents into a readable format. If they could bring in they own platform, this would make a big in-roads for the entire automation industry.""We have HTML mode and Window mode, but Automation Anywhere is limited in this. It would be better if they were able to provide different specification modes.""With the PDF command, you can only read structured data. If your data is in an unstructured format, there is no command for it in Automation Anywhere. Then, people need to use Python coding if their data is in unstructured format. Therefore, Automation Anywhere needs to improve in the PDF area.""The Excel part needs improvement because we use it as a database. Right now, we are using UiPath for this feature, as that RPA tool allows us to sort, search, and filter in Excel databases.""The IQ Bot is pretty immature, in regards to AI and machine learning. I would like them to add additional logic.""Reliability and error handling should be improved."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons »

"The stability needs to be improved.""I would like to have access to self-service support.""The solution doesn't have support like they used to. They need support. We have personnel of our own, but sometimes we need assistance beyond our own team.""I would definitely be wanting to see OCR features for improving the solution.""There should be more support for developing in environments such as Citrix and Linux.""I would like to be able to access BotForm using a mobile app.""I would like to see more process mining features to give us insight into them before we develop automation.""The new version is not very stable. Sometimes I can't use the recording sound."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have saved customers 400% in terms of time saved by implementing this product.""The pricing and licensing of Automation Anywhere plays an important rule in the Indian market because in the Indian market $10,000 USD is too much. Hence, the pricing tends to go down depending on the customer relationship with the partner: A starter pack is $10,000 and an enterprise pack is $100,000. If you go through an implementation partner, you can get good deals. They can save some money.""Their overall pricing falls in the middle of the market. Cost-wise, Automation Anywhere is quite expensive because of their analytics, IQ Bots, and MetaBots. For a standalone machine, the pricing is okay. When adding in the licensing for IQ Bots (or MetaBots), it can become quite costly.""The control room access gives the ability to create different roles, which helps when purchasing additional licensing.""They recently launched a Community Edition, which is okay, but they should have done this a long time ago.""I believe it is $10,000 for Bot Creator.""In most of the cases, the product value is very good. If the infrastructure, implementation, and framework are good, then generally, the client can get a good return on investment.""There are some additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees. There are a couple of add-ons we've looked at: The IQ Bot for OCR and machine-learning were add-ons, as well as the Bot Insights - the analytics."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing for this solution can be better.""Our licensing costs are approximately $3,000 USD annually.""The pricing model could be simplified.""I think payment can vary but it's a re-occurring fee that needs to be paid every year.""An unattended bot license costs around $5,000, whereas an attended bot license costs roughly $1,500.""We pay approximately $15,000 USD per year.""Licenses are paid on a yearly basis and the cost is quite high.""It is too expensive and not worth the price."
