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.

"I would like it to do pretty much everything out-of-the-box without any need for any customization. However, that is not the case right now. We absolutely have to do some amount of customization with the solution in order to use it out-of-the-box as-is.""We are looking to see how it can connect with various interfaces seamlessly, through APIs.""We're based in Thailand, but the documentation is not in Thai, which makes it difficult for us. If they could translate all of their documentation into our language, we'd be very grateful.""This RPA should be under the umbrella of BPM. This is what the future should be.""IBM should provide specific solutions for specific problems, like templates for invoicing processes, or general templates for creating efficient processes.""The time it takes for approvals, and risk analysis could be faster.""Stability could be better."
