We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to use and easy to apply."
"The entire backend system structure is something that I found really valuable."
"The solution has very good processes. 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. They also have good integration with SAP."
"It lets us automate almost anything, even with the legacy tools. It is very easy for us now to automate with legacy tools, which used to be difficult earlier. We work with a lot of other automation tools from Micro Focus, such as Operation Orchestration, but these tools can only connect to the API. So, there was a gap when we wanted to automate older and legacy tools that didn't have any API to connect to. We can now also automate without any changes in the customer environment. We don't need to change anything in the way that the customer environment works."
"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."
"It currently supports only on-premises deployments. They can include support for cloud deployments. It should provide us the ability to choose a robot for executing a workflow. We want to control which robot executes a certain workflow. Right now, it automatically chooses the robot that is going to execute our workflow. It should also provide the ability to get filters on the outputs of the steps. We have each workflow as a step, and each step has some output. We would like to have the functionality to execute some script or some logic on these outputs to format the tests directly on the variables."
"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."
"The pricing model is very straightforward. You can have a one-year or three-year subscription. You pay for each robot that you want to use simultaneously. If you want, you can install 50 robots and get 50 licenses. If you want to use only one robot at a time, you just need one license. For each license, you pay around 10% or 15% to support. You pay for the license, and you pay a small percentage of the cost of the license for support. This is their licensing model, which is very easy to understand."
