Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We used to do many daily routine checks and jobs. We have implemented the automation knowledge which resulted in good productivity, time-saving, and extra efforts being reduced.""Bot Insights is the most valuable feature. We don't have to struggle with generating metrics around how the bots are performing. This information coming out of Automation Anywhere is useful to us because of the way the metrics are generated. It inspires confidence from our customers.""Tasks now don't depend upon the unavailability of certain employees/colleagues to be completed. Also, bots can run all day long which also affects the overall budgets.""Sometimes the customer will not provide any data. Using Automation Anywhere, we can easily automate to capture the customer data. Then, we can use that customer data inside the Cisco Unified Wire Voice Portal.""One of the most valuable features is the error handler, as this command has helped me design bots that can handle multiple errors and exceptions.""The universal recorder along with the Excel basic and advanced packages has been highly valuable.""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.""The overall UI of the tool is so user-friendly that even a beginner can use it easily."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pros »

"I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable.""The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity.""This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features.""The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel.""The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations.""The technical support is good.""The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems.""The pricing of the solution is competitive, which is good for the Romanian market."

Cons
"Autosuggestion of existing use cases based on the problem statement could use improvement.""Replacing the list of search options with voice commands for each item would be great.""The Web Recorder should also include a feature where the user can select what browser you want it to run since it is currently using the Internet Explorer browser as default. Some of our web-based systems are currently not compatible with Internet Explorer and can only run using Firefox or Google Chrome.""I would like if the IQ Bot could read hand-written documents, otherwise, Automation Anywhere is fabulous to work or develop processes for customers.""The OCR can be a little better because sometimes while scrapping, it leads to data loss.""We do not have a precise area that needs improvement, but sometimes while running bots that traverse through different websites, the screen hangs or takes time to fully load.""The AA portal should not give us pop-ups every time a bot agent is updated.""One area where I can see room for improvement is the training material that is available."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons »

"The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""The OCR functionality needs to be improved.""The solution could offer more specific training. There should be more examples of what the functions can do and more instructions and explanations to the process.""The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses.""There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions.""One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems.""WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I really enjoy the pricing options with Automation Anywhere, as they are able to flex their ability to adapt to the needs of the customer really well.""The setup cost depends on multiple factors, so you need to get details before choosing.""The price is very reasonable.""Approximately, for a developer, it is around $750 for a license a year. For Bot Runners, it is about $550.""Costs savings have been seen by employing bots for multiple shifts instead of people.""Regarding the price, licensing, and maintenance, Automation Anywhere provides its customers with its best and affordable value.""I don't deal have cost specifics but I can say it is a tool that provides value for the money.""Our advice is that anybody interested in this product should negotiate product bundles in order to reduce the cost of installation and setup."
