Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable features for my client are timing and scheduling.""This tool has machine learning and voice recognition and computer vision, which are both quite useful aspects. These aren't available in other tools. It's a good addition to this tool and it gives the solution an edge on the market.""The licensing of the product is very good. You only need to license it once and then you have it forever.""I actually quite liked the no-coding functionality.""We have found the pricing to be very reasonable.""The interface is simple, user-friendly, and very intuitive.""The pricing is excellent. I would give them perfect marks in that regard.""The solution is continuously adding more integrations to help with workflows and bot and task creation."

Cons
"Some companies have asked for voice integration. This is likely part of the roadmap.""The OCR for Hebrew text needs to be improved.""The solution has a very weak knowledge base.""The documentation is not that great.""They do not encrypt passwords, so this is an issue with HIPAA compliance.""It's possible that they could use a stronger community for seeking guidance and help.""The interface could be more user-friendly and easier to navigate.""The technical support could be better. We suffer from language barriers, as we are in Argentina."

More HelpSystems AutoMate Cons »

"The visual presentation is a little too colorful and seems that it is dumbed down.""What needs the most improvement are semantic lineage and usability.""The model diagram because very clumsy when you save it on the team server and the models are very big."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"While solutions like UiPath and Blue Prism cost around $11,000-$12,000 for each license, this product costs around $7,000 and you can keep it forever.""I like the way this solution is priced because you can buy a license, or you can buy the software outright.""It comes with a package that costs approximately $20,000 USD per year."
