It's very easy to deploy and has good reviews on it. It offers good automation and the solution has very good developers working on it.""From a solution standpoint, screen capture and tight integration with Outlook are valuable features.""The most valuable feature is the rapid deployment of multiple bots.""The ability to drag and drop various components and the customizability are good features.""Automation Anywhere has good document extraction features where it can learn patterns.""They recently released the newest version that has a good program flow, quality, and blueprints that are all good improvements to the automation.

More BotFarm Pros »

"The most valuable feature is its ability to capture data, which changes all the time into different formats.""The solution automates manual data entry.""The second thing that I like about Datacap is the fingerprint capture which is easy to configure on Datacap. From the form of the document, if a document is redundant in the same department, we can configure the capture based on the form of the documents"

Cons
"The stability needs to be improved.""I would like to have access to self-service support.""The solution doesn't have support like they used to. They need support. We have personnel of our own, but sometimes we need assistance beyond our own team.""I would definitely be wanting to see OCR features for improving the solution.""There should be more support for developing in environments such as Citrix and Linux.""I would like to be able to access BotForm using a mobile app.""I would like to see more process mining features to give us insight into them before we develop automation.""The new version is not very stable. Sometimes I can't use the recording sound."

More BotFarm Cons »

"I would like to see the product have the ability to process more documents in parallel. Right now, it is a single queue. Therefore, if you want to really test the load and stress test it, having multiple instances and the ability to scale it up would be great.""I would like better ease of use and more support options.""The interface can be more intuitive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing for this solution can be better.""Our licensing costs are approximately $3,000 USD annually.""The pricing model could be simplified.""I think payment can vary but it's a re-occurring fee that needs to be paid every year.""An unattended bot license costs around $5,000, whereas an attended bot license costs roughly $1,500.""We pay approximately $15,000 USD per year.""Licenses are paid on a yearly basis and the cost is quite high.""It is too expensive and not worth the price."

"Pricing depends on how much we use it. We pay per bulk quantity. We pay as you go. Therefore, it sort of depends on our usage of it."
