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

More Kofax RPA Pros »

"It is easy to manage the robotics environment with Orchestrator, including scheduling and reporting.""This solution has improved business by facilitating increased speed and accuracy.""Ease of deployment means that business benefits can be developed quickly and easily.""We really like the Orchestrator and how I'm able to see what's going on with all of the different automations.""The Orchestrator is great because you schedule it, and that's it, you don't have to worry about it.""I like Orchestrator and how easy it is to manipulate and get your data, to see what's going on.""The software itself is relatively straightforward and easy to use.""I think the most valuable feature is being able to run processes in an unattended way where we can schedule them, and then have the report sent to the process owner's inbox in the morning."

More Kofax RPA Cons »

"Optical character recognition for hand written documents could be improved.""Templates had to be created for different formats.""Additional help with ROM and approach would be an improvement.""On the development side, more documentation on how to structure the setup for different environments would be helpful.""We had some issues with instability for which we were never able to determine the root cause.""One of the things we're struggling with it how to project how many robots we need to do these processes, so better documentation or assistance in this regard would be useful.""Enhanced capability in the document management space would be a huge benefit to our organization.""I would like to see a biweekly scheduling option in Orchestrator."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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)."

More Kofax RPA Pricing and Cost Advice »

"With respect to the cost, you're going to recognize the savings immediately for the cost of the tool.""It's the same as what you would see on any of their list prices. There is also a corporate discount because of scale. Overall, we think it was a competitive price offering. They were the cheapest out of the three, so that's why we went with them.""The licensing costs for the unattended bots are a little too expensive.""I can estimate our licensing costs are approximately $100,000 USD per year.""We got purchased the basic minimum package and it was around $35,000 USD, annually.""Because we have so many agents, that's why we went unattended. Attended was very expensive for us because it's a per person license. Where we can take entire workflows, do the triggering and scheduling, etc. We never have to have any human interaction with unattended.""We have a cost model for operating expense savings. It is usually about $100,000 to $125,000 and takes us six weeks to develop and implement. That's development, testing, and implementation. We do code reviews on everything. That does not include all the documentation, assessment, etc.""There are cheaper options than UiPath."
