We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The second thing that I like about Datacap is the fingerprint capture which is easy to configure on Datacap. From the form of the document, if a document is redundant in the same department, we can configure the capture based on the form of the documents"
"The solution automates manual data entry."
"The best part of Kofax is that they have a whole concept. It's one product, but also has extra elements that can be integrated."
"The drag and drop functionality is quite good."
"This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems."
"It is stable and scalable."
"The OCR was quite stable and flexible."
"The pricing of the solution is quite good."
"Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools."
"The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things."
"The interface can be more intuitive."
"I would like better ease of use and more support options."
"I'd like to see a recording function and a more simple interface."
"The solution needs to be scalable."
"It needs a free training portal for anybody on the internet to use so that they can get an idea of what the possibilities are."
"There is really nothing special about the capabilities of this product."
"Exception handling needs to be improved."
"The product needs more AI capabilities."
"I would like to see them further enhance the OCR, specifically in the multi-language support."
"The process discovery could be a bit better."
"The normal price for an on-premises license is €50,000. That's the price for one robot license. You can have more than one robot license but only one can be run at any one time. I believe the cost of adding a second robot is around €14,000."
"Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
"I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis."
"Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."
