We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that it is pretty low-code, so you don't need much coding expertise to use it."
"Power Automate has allowed us to simplify the business process and improve operational efficiency."
"This product is a really easy-to-use solution for quickly developing prototypes."
"Power Automate is not complex and is very easy-to-use in deploying most development projects."
"For people who already use Office 365, Power Automate is very easy to integrate and use."
"Power Automate is intuitive and easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the ability and ease of linking multiple connectors within the same flow."
"In just in one click, we can see any documentation, etc., that we need. It makes it very easy to navigate."
"The most valuable features are the recorder because it's user-friendly and the integration with other tools Excel."
"This solution has great document recognition capabilities."
"The dashboard is the solution's most valuable feature. When clients want to look at the data it's very easy for them to do so. The dashboard for the IT manager is very useful if there are issues and to create and follow processes."
"In terms of stability, it's quite good. It's an internal IP product."
"In our opinion this group are the leaders in providing RPA solutions."
"We can see that its competitive ability is quite good."
"The most valuable feature is that it is easy to use."
"WorkFusion's SAP integrations are really good."
"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."
"It should integrate with more ERP solutions like SAP. It doesn't currently have that ability."
"A better graphical user interface that allows business users to perform automation would make this solution number one in the market."
"The problem with the solution is that it is agnostic, so it's not made for banks. Sometimes we are challenged because of this. We have to make everything from scratch to make it work for our clients."
"On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate them a 6. That's not low - that 60%. But as I said, it needs to be upgraded and modified."
"We would like to see further improvement in the area of running headless."
"I would also like for it to be NLP-based."
"One of the issues that we are facing here in China, is that we cannot access the material for training because it is on YouTube. In China, we do not have access to YouTube."
"It is complex for enterprise implementation. The solution needs a needs minimum, of 20-22 servers. It's no small task. This is not a straightforward setup. It's a large undertaking and there are many moving parts."
"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."
"Find it online."
"They have a very expensive license compared to any other automation tool. For instance, at $50,000 - $60,000, you can bring in an Automation Anywhere solution. For this solution, you need at least $250,000 to get something going."
"It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest."
"I can't speak to pricing. It's a contract signed by upper management."
"We are on an annual contract to use the solution."
