Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It lets us automate almost anything, even with the legacy tools. It is very easy for us now to automate with legacy tools, which used to be difficult earlier. We work with a lot of other automation tools from Micro Focus, such as Operation Orchestration, but these tools can only connect to the API. So, there was a gap when we wanted to automate older and legacy tools that didn't have any API to connect to. We can now also automate without any changes in the customer environment. We don't need to change anything in the way that the customer environment works."

"The solution is comparatively quick to deploy for making smaller automation processes.""The pricing of the solution is competitive, which is good for the Romanian market.""The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations.""The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems.""This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features.""The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel.""The technical support is good.""The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity."

Cons
"It currently supports only on-premises deployments. They can include support for cloud deployments. It should provide us the ability to choose a robot for executing a workflow. We want to control which robot executes a certain workflow. Right now, it automatically chooses the robot that is going to execute our workflow. It should also provide the ability to get filters on the outputs of the steps. We have each workflow as a step, and each step has some output. We would like to have the functionality to execute some script or some logic on these outputs to format the tests directly on the variables."

"We find the solution to be not that user-friendly, and might be using the older version, which really did not have a lot of features, so my review is mostly based on the older version.""The solution could offer more specific training. There should be more examples of what the functions can do and more instructions and explanations to the process.""The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses.""One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition.""The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""The OCR functionality needs to be improved.""There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing model is very straightforward. You can have a one-year or three-year subscription. You pay for each robot that you want to use simultaneously. If you want, you can install 50 robots and get 50 licenses. If you want to use only one robot at a time, you just need one license. For each license, you pay around 10% or 15% to support. You pay for the license, and you pay a small percentage of the cost of the license for support. This is their licensing model, which is very easy to understand."

Top Answer: I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable.
Top Answer: As far as pricing goes, WinAutomation's earlier model was good. They were cheap. However, they changed the model. It's per work station now, which is okay.
