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."

"Support is very quick. You can write to them and on the same day, they will respond. This is one of the best features.""The scalability is very good. It's probably one of the better tools I've seen on the market.""This is a powerful, reliable and versatile all-around application testing suite.""Code Conversion is one of the great features because sometimes, the automation tool doesn't have the capability of maneuvering around two specific evaluations."

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 »

"If there are many queries on the web page, Ranorex will not render the page correctly. I had about 1,000 queries on the page, and the solution was not able to handle it.""One of the areas the service could be improved would be to have the training in Italian.""For our purposes it requires integration with other products to get out the results in the format we want them. Adding this to the product could improve it.""The object detection functionality needs to be improved."

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 »

"We paid €3,000 (approximately $3,300 USD) for this solution. When you add the runtime licenses it will be €3,500 (approximately $3,900 USD).""There are several types of licenses and you need to choose depending on your needs and level of usage.""The licensing fees depend on the number of users."
