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

Pros
"Having a cloud-based deployment provides more flexibility because we just need an internet connection for connecting the agent into the AA cloud.""Automation Anywhere has saved us a lot of time, money & efforts by automating our ServiceNow tickets.""AA has good coverage in terms of out-of-the-box functionality for bot development and management.""Excel automation is especially helpful because a lot of small companies are still using Excel as their data storage.""The biggest challenge in attended automation, every time the agent has to log in to the control room and execute bot for most of the agents this is a time-consuming activity plus they are not tech-savvy""By using this, we are saving time and we no need to do routine work, as it is now automated and the result is shared with all of the end-users.""The ease of use for the end user and the very low complexity in trying to build a bot are the big factors for us. We are able to work on a project, identify a use case, come up with a design spec, and execute and build a bot within a span of six to eight weeks. In nine to ten weeks, we are able to go live, which reduced complexity. Once we go live, the user interface and the user experience are extremely good.""AA control room is one central system to manage our tasks. We found it excellent to administrate. It was used for easy scheduling of process/task in Remote desktop. This helped to avoid manual intervention to trigger tasks."

Cons
"The quality and response time of the support, even on Sev-1 tickets, is not satisfactory.""The AA portal should not give us pop-ups every time a bot agent is updated.""A2019 should have more improvement for developers, as it was in v11.x.""Instead of depending on other open-source BPM products, AA should provide their own BPM for attended automations.""Many clients use the Citrix environment but AA has very low functionality to automate a Citrix environment.""Intelligent automation is currently a buzz and I would love to see more innovation in this segment.""The mobile application can be improved by adding more functions and capabilities abuse right now, only a few features are enabled for mobile users.""I would like to see a technology where they can automatically update or upgrade themselves to the latest version, without having to uninstall the current bot."

"Lacks integration with third party tools."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is a bit higher.""Pricing is affordable and I would recommend beginning with the Starter Package.""This is a comprehensive automation offering with a scalable architecture and flexible pricing models.""Regarding the price, licensing, and maintenance, Automation Anywhere provides its customers with its best and affordable value.""There is a free trial so that they can get an overview, and there are different licenses that are very affordable and can suit every business model.""It's very good in terms of cost and pricing.""Our pricing a year ago was $600 per license.""Costs savings have been seen by employing bots for multiple shifts instead of people."
