Pros
"What I like about Automation Anywhere is the object cloning and the way you can move the mouse and either go to a particular point or go to an element. That's very easy and intuitive in Automation Anywhere... If I need to mimic a human behavior, I will use Automation Anywhere.""The customer engagement is really deep, and they work with the “gemba”. They work with operations very closely. I also believe they have a good product roadmap.""Automation Anywhere was easier to learn for the developers. It has a lot of out of box features when it comes to SAP, Excel, and others.""This solution is valuable because it can automate tasks which would otherwise be left for us to process manually.""The immediate impact is administrative tasks which were traditionally done manually are now being done by robots. This reduces the workload for people.""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 most valuable feature is the ability to create code from a flow chart, and then run the code through it.""The solution is based on a Windows model, where adding users is just a few clicks. It is easy to manage users and add them.""The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR."

Cons
"There's a loss of overhead on the computing resources in Automation Anywhere. If you have an encrypted bot, the Automation Anywhere software has to read it first, decrypt it, and run it. So there is a potential that, if the logic of the bot isn't good enough, a lot of CPU and memory overload will happen. This is something which Automation Anywhere should look at because it takes a lot of computing resources. I have seen CPUs running at 100 percent.""They will need much more support, because it is a new thing and it’ll never fail because of productive partners. It will fail if people on the “gemba” don’t adopt it.""The biggest issue was that the new license required upgraded hardware infrastructure so we were getting all new tech stuff procured which meant that we were getting updated RAMs and things like that. Getting the licenses was easier but building the infrastructure which was required to support the new version was difficult.""As far as stability is concerned, there have been some challenges. Sometimes, we experience our computers freezing up for no apparent reason or the network being inaccessible.""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."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons »

"We found that we had issues regarding the VPN setup, which is one of the reasons that we did not purchase this solution.""The reporting function is a bit shallow. The solution does not offer very comprehensive reporting in terms of your test results. The reporting time and the logs are very high level as well. These areas need improvement.""In terms of additional features, it would be helpful to have one package for all testing. You have the manager, the AI, then you have functional, and about 10 different packages for installing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"If you look at the capital expenditure, Automation Anywhere is number two to UiPath. But if you take a long-term view, on a scalable model of a large number of bots coming out, it slowly goes on to become the costliest tool. There is something they can do about that. The capital expenditure goes out right at the point of buying the tool. For Automation Anywhere, I would need to spend $20,000. UiPath can give me something for $6,000, while Blue Prism will come in at $300,000.""It's cheaper than other similar solutions.""The cost for scalability is much cheaper than developing a new system.""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."
