Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

More BotFarm Pros »

"It helped us reduce manual steps.""It has improved our organization with more automation within the business departments and less administration and development in the IT department. Usually, as the IT department, we are the bottleneck for many requirements within the business. With this tool, the business departments are able to perform many task themselves.""'ve only had a few cases where I've had to request support in the past 12 years of use, but the support response time and resolution were was extremely quick.""The ability to clone jobs to shorten the time it takes to implement a process has been invaluable, but its flexibility also gives us the ability to create a job that can handle a multifaceted process with a complex workflow.""VisualCron is a very powerful program to automate different steps in your business processes. We use it to automate replacing files and inform departments about the replacement."

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 »

"The error timeout and info could be better. When making web request calls, it will time out sometimes and we won't get any useful info out of the error response.""Our suggestion to make it better and more manageable in terms of GDPR: Implement it in a very partnership way.""I would like for VisualCron to expand audit log to show who changed job variables that are initialized per job run.""VisualCron seems to operate like an efficient machine when it comes to improvements and enhancements and new features. I always appreciate the quick response I get when bringing up an issue or coming up with suggestions. I've mentioned before that it would be great to see a move away from SQLCE and XML configuration files.""There are some conditions in the mail trigger, but you can only use them as an "AND" condition, not as an "OR" condition. This is an improvement that could be useful. For example, some people put "invoice" in the subject and others put "invoice" in the body. If I want to make a trigger for everybody whose sending invoices, I have to make two jobs for this now."

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."

"ROI is 95 percent.""We are fine with a rather cheap setup. Licensing with VisualCron is fair. You have a simple one-year licence in different sizes. There isn't a licensing jungle with hundreds of options and opt-ins.""The pricing is extremely fair, and because of that I recommend purchasing multiple instances to split out the processing load across multiple application servers.""ROI is one month."
