Researched WorkFusion but chose Automation Anywhere (AA): MetaBots' reusable drag-and-drop code helps business users save time
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Automation Anywhere has surely helped our organization to shape its Digital Journey - It was our first RPA tool which helped us to perform basic automation which created Point solutions but has added tremendous value at the early stage. We were able to scale-up fast using Automation Anywhere due to its user-friendly AI and later on IQ Bots provided the required edge to handle the unstructured data.
I implemented AA in different environments, the AA installation is the smoothest compared to other RPA software installs.
The universal recorder is a kind of hybrid recorder that enables the user to record the data across devices.
Movement on cloud architecture according to me provided by AA2019, will be most beneficial as it will be easy to use and will provide flexibility.
AA has improved our digital strategy extensively and provided the required leverage to place ourselves above other peers in the O&G Industry. We were able to develop quick digital solutions by demonstrating the ROI and gain momentum by aligning the desired resources & budget from leadership.
The advantage of Automation Anywhere is that you don't necessarily have to come from a programming background.
We have improved on IQ Bot collectively with the normal Taskbot that we use. How it got started was that we have a lot of scanned documents to input for our solution. So, I used to get a lot of scanned documents, and extracting or reading the data from those has always been a pain area. We always used to bring a manual person in to do it. Once a manual person did that activity, it was brought into Excel where I could run the bot. With the entry of IQ Bot, it now takes care of my scanned documents, which means IQ Bot does the OCR extraction and gives my data to the Automation Anywhere Taskbot. This means no manual intervention and end-to-end bot processing, along with a happy customer at the end of the day. We provide these services to multiple clients, so we have been doing this for all of our clients.
Scalability is one of the best things about most of the RPA bots. Once you create one, scalability is just about multiplying them.
Ability to calculate the ROI on the jobs that are running.
The Robotic Desktop Automation Express component allows us to do rapid development outside the normal, time-consuming processes.
WorkFusion's RPA Express's ability to scale across multiple geographies with limited impact on additional IT Hardware requirements. This has enabled the scaling of Robotics capabilities and solutions across all our entities.
WorkFusion's SAP integrations are really good.
The most valuable feature is that it is easy to use.
We can see that its competitive ability is quite good.
In our opinion this group are the leaders in providing RPA solutions.
In terms of stability, it's quite good. It's an internal IP product.
The dashboard is the solution's most valuable feature. When clients want to look at the data it's very easy for them to do so. The dashboard for the IT manager is very useful if there are issues and to create and follow processes.
Automation Anywhere can be improved in certain areas specified in the cognitive zone where the information needs better OCR Engine + Machine Learning capabilities. Also, they can improve on the System Identified region function of the IQ Bot - Our team faced a tough time in handling that as we were not able to assign variable to System Identified Region as the IQ Bot tool wasn't allowing it.
Bringing a DevOps model for bot implementation integrated through private bot store might be a good idea to improve the tool.
SMTP mail features should come with migration options. All kind of VB scripts and Java scripts which we built using exiting version should support in this version.
[They] should add more Analytics and Intelligence related capabilities.
Additional features should involve the Cognitive Section where we need more Advance solutions involving ML & AI.
Because we are very new to our process, so we're still sort of working through it.
I would like a couple more features where I can talk and the line comes up automatically. I can just put on a mic, like in "Ok Google". With "Ok Google", I can tell it to please open an Excel spreadsheet with the header read. If this is there, then I don't even need to sit on a computer, I can just dictate my commands and it will automatically come up.
Some things that I do not see as of today are interactive chat or video interface. These are things that I will look for in future. I saw something like picture recognition, but something like a video or voice recognition is something that I'm looking for in the Automation Anywhere platform as an end user and even as a reseller.
Would like to see more additions to the library.
The product could do more to expand its 'codeless' coding options by adding drag-and-drop assistance in building bots for non-technical users.
The product needs to be "simple and easy" to use. A good example of this is the use of Python code to perform automations. It is free and the skills transfer is able to happen quickly and the operation and initiation of the completed automation is easy to execute.
It is complex for enterprise implementation. The solution needs a needs minimum, of 20-22 servers. It's no small task. This is not a straightforward setup. It's a large undertaking and there are many moving parts.
One of the issues that we are facing here in China, is that we cannot access the material for training because it is on YouTube. In China, we do not have access to YouTube.
I would also like for it to be NLP-based.
We would like to see further improvement in the area of running headless.
On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate them a 6. That's not low - that 60%. But as I said, it needs to be upgraded and modified.
The problem with the solution is that it is agnostic, so it's not made for banks. Sometimes we are challenged because of this. We have to make everything from scratch to make it work for our clients.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Costs savings have been seen by employing bots for multiple shifts instead of people.
If we talk about the automation RPA. it definitely has worked very well for us. I'm talking about giving good savings, about more than 180 FTE savings, after implementing more than 200 plus bots. It has worked well. As an organization, it has supported us very well, and also for our customers.
It saves on the quality of work, because the quality can be bad when somebody's doing it. If a bot does the work, it's faster and comes with good quality. These are two important things along with the cost saving in the long run. That's where the value is.
We have seen ROI on one of the process, but not on the other processes yet.
The licensing cost is approximately $4,000 USD, which is a seed license.
The certifications are free of cost.
There are a lot of savings in terms of effort and time as well as costs. Automation Anywhere automates a lot of processes. It allows an organization to save the efforts of a lot people. It saves a lot of time because people can't work a whole day (24/7), but Automation Anywhere bots can.
We are interested in saving manual engineer man-hours. So far, we have saved $100,000.
Information Not Available
It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest.
They have a very expensive license compared to any other automation tool. For instance, at $50,000 - $60,000, you can bring in an Automation Anywhere solution. For this solution, you need at least $250,000 to get something going.
