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

Pros
The most valuable feature is the screen recorder, which helps to automate processes easily.The most valuable features of this solution are its scalability, security using the credential vault, and ease of use for business.The advantage of Automation Anywhere is that you don't necessarily have to come from a programming background.We have improved on IQ Bot collectively with the normal Taskbot that we use. How it got started was that we have a lot of scanned documents to input for our solution. So, I used to get a lot of scanned documents, and extracting or reading the data from those has always been a pain area. We always used to bring a manual person in to do it. Once a manual person did that activity, it was brought into Excel where I could run the bot. With the entry of IQ Bot, it now takes care of my scanned documents, which means IQ Bot does the OCR extraction and gives my data to the Automation Anywhere Taskbot. This means no manual intervention and end-to-end bot processing, along with a happy customer at the end of the day. We provide these services to multiple clients, so we have been doing this for all of our clients.From an SAP point of view, we have in-built features. They have integrated everything together, so it's much easier for us to use that.The technical support is good. If it is required that they provide their resources, they will send their resources to your organization to support you in terms of development and technical support.Since our implementation, I can vouch for the fact that it is very easy to use. You do not need to know a lot of coding, even the business users, who have virtually no idea of coding, can easily operate it. They can run their bots and have the analysis ready for higher management. This is something which provides a great ease of use, and also in part why it is scalable.What really helps RPA to grow is the cognitive part of it. That's where the product is really good. Initially, it started out as RPA, but now there is a cognitive aspect to it. That's a key value to it.

With Blue Prism, you automate the back-end processes. Blue Prism is more like service-side automation. It is not off-circuit automation. It is more like attended automation.The most valuable feature is the ability to do surface automation, allowing interaction with legacy systems where terminal emulation is still in use.This solution has increased the speed, accuracy, and happiness of staff involved in the activities for which RPA has been deployed.The most valuable improvement in utilizing process automation is the cost savings, but we have also had cases where the customer experience is enhanced.The most valuable feature is the design studio and its ease of use.It offers assessments by way of a robotics or automation readiness assessment tool, which was quite helpful.The way you design the flow and configure the activities for the bot is very useful if you are working with any of the BPM or local platforms.If there is a task that Blue Prism cannot do out of the box, Blue Prism provides me the facility of designing one and integrating it into the application. This process is called Visual Basic Objects.

In our opinion this group are the leaders in providing RPA solutions.In terms of stability, it's quite good. It's an internal IP product.The dashboard is the solution's most valuable feature. When clients want to look at the data it's very easy for them to do so. The dashboard for the IT manager is very useful if there are issues and to create and follow processes.This solution has great document recognition capabilities.The most valuable features are the recorder because it's user-friendly and the integration with other tools Excel.

Cons
We need more commands for PDF integration to make it more flexible.Better use case management to prevent each development from scratch would be an improvement.Because we are very new to our process, so we're still sort of working through it.I would like a couple more features where I can talk and the line comes up automatically. I can just put on a mic, like in "Ok Google". With "Ok Google", I can tell it to please open an Excel spreadsheet with the header read. If this is there, then I don't even need to sit on a computer, I can just dictate my commands and it will automatically come up.We have in-house, a few variables, which we use from technical perspectives. We don't have them in Automation Anywhere, but they introduced them yesterday.The initial setup was not that great. The road was very up and down. We struggled. A lot of the features were not compatible with applications which we are using. That was the reason. This was the initial days, we are talking about 2016 to 2017. The buzz was not as much as we are having now.The initial setup was quite complex. We have faced an issue. During the initial implementation stages, it took longer than we expected. It affected our timelines to a certain extent.Technical support needs to be much faster. I also had the project delivery. I had six clients whom I looked after. Whenever we got stuck, it was all about sprinting. There was a two or three week sprint. Within that, if you just wait for two to three days, it doesn't make sense. The support needs to implode, because I was just talking to a customer now who came directly and asked us, "Can you give us a dedicated support team?" It's feedback from our customer that support takes too long.

They cannot do assisted automation. That is a drawback because that technology is very old now.I would like to see the vendor improve the efficiency of Blue Prism interaction with applications.We would like to see intelligent process automation that integrates RPA and machine learning.We would like to see some desktop automation, although we have been told that the product is not going to be taken in that direction.A feature that I would like to see in the next release is the ability to easily call on the robots to fulfill part of the process, and be run by the users in the business, where the robot can simply be activated rather than running mass processes from a control room.This solution is lacking attended automation, which is the worst thing about this solution.I would like to see wider integration with other products.I believe that there could be more community support, or there could be more support for developers like us from Blue Prism. Blue Prism provides a lot of documentation, but there is a lack of support.

We would like to see further improvement in the area of running headless.On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate them a 6. That's not low - that 60%. But as I said, it needs to be upgraded and modified.The problem with the solution is that it is agnostic, so it's not made for banks. Sometimes we are challenged because of this. We have to make everything from scratch to make it work for our clients.A better graphical user interface that allows business users to perform automation would make this solution number one in the market.It should integrate with more ERP solutions like SAP. It doesn't currently have that ability.

Pricing and Cost Advice
If we talk about the automation RPA. it definitely has worked very well for us. I'm talking about giving good savings, about more than 180 FTE savings, after implementing more than 200 plus bots. It has worked well. As an organization, it has supported us very well, and also for our customers.It saves on the quality of work, because the quality can be bad when somebody's doing it. If a bot does the work, it's faster and comes with good quality. These are two important things along with the cost saving in the long run. That's where the value is.We have seen ROI on one of the process, but not on the other processes yet.The licensing cost is approximately $4,000 USD, which is a seed license.The certifications are free of cost.There are a lot of savings in terms of effort and time as well as costs. Automation Anywhere automates a lot of processes. It allows an organization to save the efforts of a lot people. It saves a lot of time because people can't work a whole day (24/7), but Automation Anywhere bots can.We are interested in saving manual engineer man-hours. So far, we have saved $100,000.Our company is investing a lot of money in Automation Anywhere. They have saved money wherever humans are working. They invest a lot of money in FTEs and other logistics, so the money saving is very pretty good with Automation Anywhere. While I don't know the exact figure, the tool is saving us millions of dollars as well as saving about 40,000 hours in the last year.

Compared to other tools on the market, it is one of the most expensive.Other than your infrastructure, in terms of servers that you have to set up, I don't think that there are any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.We really don't bear the costs. The cost is borne by the customer. It runs into about $100,000 per year per customer for Blue Prism. We normally budget around $30,000 for the first year for the hardware, setup, and people cost.Blue Prism is pretty steep compared to the others, much more than Automation Anywhere.
