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
"While this solution is continually improving, as it is now, the user interface could use improvement when I compare it to a product like UiPath.""The OCR for Hebrew text needs to be improved.""The vendor is currently working on a solution that allows us to automatically create a process that is based on a document that we receive via email.""They do not encrypt passwords, so this is an issue with HIPAA compliance.""The solution has a very weak knowledge base.""It's possible that they could use a stronger community for seeking guidance and help.""The technical support could be better. We suffer from language barriers, as we are in Argentina.""Some companies have asked for voice integration. This is likely part of the roadmap."

"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
"Compared to other products, the pricing model for this solution is much more convenient, flexible, and adaptable to the Portuguese reality.""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.""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."

More HelpSystems AutoMate 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."
