Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I like the inject feature. With desktop injects, we're doing all these things and extracting these things. Its stable, scalable, and technical support is good."

"The most valuable feature is that it is pretty low-code, so you don't need much coding expertise to use it.""Power Automate has allowed us to simplify the business process and improve operational efficiency.""This product is a really easy-to-use solution for quickly developing prototypes.""Power Automate is not complex and is very easy-to-use in deploying most development projects.""For people who already use Office 365, Power Automate is very easy to integrate and use.""Power Automate is intuitive and easy to use.""The most valuable feature is the ability and ease of linking multiple connectors within the same flow.""In just in one click, we can see any documentation, etc., that we need.

Cons
"Their email service and extraction could be better. We get the input via email, and these emails contain different types of documents like Excel, PDF, or they may contain different content in the email body. Due to this variation, sometimes the email service crashes, and emails aren't redirected to Ephesoft Transact. Ephesoft has provided us with new hotfixes. Whatever flaws we found in the 2019.2 version, they have already updated it in the new version, 20.1.05, and it's already released. Drawbacks like not capturing the handwritten fields are now sorted."

"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
"Initially, when I got a licensed copy of Ephesoft Transact, it was for one year. After one year, we had to send an email to the Ephesoft team informing them that our license was going to expire. They updated it and provided one license in our file, and we had to update and install the folder. They have versions for one year and lifelong as well."

More Ephesoft Transact 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."
