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 have a user account so that the staff can see all of their requests, including the status and other details for each one, on the dashboard.""There is an RPA feature gap between this solution and other more mature products.""If the product had onscreen help, it would be easier to learn and use.""The thing which needs the most improvement is really the documentation. It should have better details of the processes.""Compared to other RPA solutions, there is a little bit of a feature gap.""The licensing model is difficult to understand and is something that should be improved.""I would like to have chatbot assistance available, where you can open it and receive help on the spot.""All the services on the Microsoft platform are great. If we want to try something like with SharePoint or Azure or the 365 CRM, then we can't with the everyday community edition of the Microsoft Power Automate. It would be a good thing if there was some sort of trial period. Let's say you have 14 days. That way, can log into the loading screen with Power Automate, and get to utilize services like SharePoint, OneDrive, 365 CRM or etc. to see if they like them. It would be a good way for Microsoft to cross-sell or up-sell."

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."

More BotFarm Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution is bundled with our Office 365, so there is no additional licensing fee.""You pay for use and if you want a premium connector or adapter, but a lot of things are available for free.""Power Automate is a much less expensive product than the competition.""There are many different ways to license it.""This solution can save money when used for simple tasks specifically using only Microsoft products.""There is zero licensing cost. It comes with our Microsoft Office subscription.""I don't deal with the financial side. I know that we pay for a per-user license. It is probably less than $20 a user, but I am not sure about the exact figures.""I am not aware of the recent pricing model, but during the time that I was using this solution is was reasonable."
