We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things."
"Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools."
"The pricing of the solution is quite good."
"The OCR was quite stable and flexible."
"The drag and drop functionality is quite good."
"The ability to script information from websites is most valuable. It also seems to be fairly robust and reasonably easy to manage on a server-based deployment. We have a number of robots operating on the central server."
"This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems."
"It is stable and scalable."
"I like that Power Automate gives us a connector to be able to connect different data sources or different software."
"The most valuable feature is the ability and ease of linking multiple connectors within the same flow."
"Automation is the best feature of the product."
"The most valuable feature is that it is pretty low-code, so you don't need much coding expertise to use it."
"The templates on offer are very good."
"The solution is easy to understand and to develop connectors."
"Its integration with the Office 365 ecosystem is most valuable. We use a lot of ready-to-use templates."
"The initial setup isn't too difficult."
"Its documentation is not widely available on the web. They should work on the availability of its documentation. In Automation Anywhere, there is a feature called Discovery Bot that automatically records the process steps and suggests a possible bot. I am not sure if such a feature is available in Kofax. If it is not available, it will be very good to have this feature. "
"We are on version 10.6, and the current version seems to be 11. Kofax is cycling the capabilities of the product very quickly. One of the difficulties has been to actually keep up with the capabilities as they've evolved. On the one hand, it is good that the product is getting better, but on the other hand, it is difficult to implement the best way with a product that is evolving constantly."
"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."
"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."
"The process discovery could be a bit better."
"When we scale up, we switch to another application."
"It would be good to have some kind of on-premises solution for BPMN users, but I don't think Microsoft will ever go back to the on-premises solution. They all train their clients to use their online services. It is easy, but it doesn't follow the industry-wide standards. I can only use the processes that Microsoft gives us. I can't map a business process by using other standards or notations, such as Business Process Management (BPM). I have to use whatever Microsoft gives us. I would like to have support for some standards because if we decide to use another BPM tomorrow, we will have to remap everything in notation to transfer from this solution. This is the only block or obstacle that I see in using this solution. It is closed in its infrastructure."
"Not suitable for connecting other applications like browsers and third party applications."
"The solution is still maturing, and it's going to take time for that to happen."
"The solution is not actually satisfying the complex programs that we want to execute."
"It should be faster and more user-friendly."
"There is an RPA feature gap between this solution and other more mature products."
"Looping can be a bit tricky."
"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."
"Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
"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)."
"We are just using the free products at the moment. We are using the ones that come with the license that we have got."
"This solution can save money when used for simple tasks specifically using only Microsoft products."
"Its licensing cost is comparatively less as compared to Automation Anywhere. We have bought a two-year license agreement."
"The price is right. If you have Office 365 It's included."
"Currently, we are using the free license for testing. After everything is done, we'll buy the license."
"There should be increased transparency about which features attend the pricing."
"We have it on our system. I don't really know if we need a separate license."
"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."
