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

Pros
"One of the features that we have used the most is an action in the Workbench called Object Cloning. We find that very reliable and very useful for implementing different business processes.""Security is a top priority for us. To be allowed to automate different processes, we need to have a good set of controls around who is allowed to do what, and what credentials people can and can't use. It allows us to manage access make sure that we have full control.""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."

"UFT has improved our ability to regression test.""This product is easy to use, understand, and maintain.""The production and the efficiency of making your test cases can be very high.""The solution has good out-of-the-box protocols.""The interface is fine and there is nothing else to add in terms of enhancement.""The initial setup is relatively easy.""On a scale of one to ten, I would give Micro Focus UFT One a 10 because it is a reliable product, it works, it's as good or better than similar solutions especially because you get technical support from real people. Additionally, upgrades are always provided on a consistent basis."

Cons
"The main things I've found that could be better are small things that can be annoying when you're using them a lot. I would recommend they add a feature where, if you mark the start of an "If" sentence it will highlight the end of the "If" sentence. That would make it easier to get a better overview.""We would like to see more options for merging and un-merging PDFs. More flexibility there would be good. We've figured out ways around this and, using their software, we've been able to do everything we wanted to do. It just took a bit more time to do it. We were on version 10.5 and in their Bot Store they actually had a bot that did exactly what we wanted to do, but it was for Version 11.0.""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."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons »

"It could work with more browsers other than Internet Explorer, and could better handle new things like Ext JS.""One of the drawbacks is that mobile performance testing is in need of improvement.""The price is very high. They should work to lower the costs for their clients.""Technical support could be improved.""We have had some issues with stability, where it crashes sometimes.""The overall design needs an entire overhaul. We prefer software designed to ensure the package isn't too loaded.""They need to reduce the cost because it is pretty high. It's approximately $3,000 per user."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We just did a round of price comparison on a global scale and found it's so hard to compare the license prices. But, Automation Anywhere, in general, is on the same price level as the other vendors, a bit lower in some cases.""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."

"The price is only $3,000. I don't know how many QA analysts you would have in any given company. Probably no more than five or 10. So if it's a large corporation, it can easily afford $15,000 to $25,000. I don't see that being an issue."
