Pricing and Cost Advice
Their licensing processes are in par with most industry standards.
We have established a CoE and we take our bot opportunities based on their ROIs. The best ROI opportunity goes to development first. Our ROI opportunities are compliance, profitable growth, productivity enhancements, productivity gains, number of hours the productivity saved, and resources not available that the work can be done by the bot. However, the single most important criteria that we use to measure ROI is how much time does the bot cut down from an analyst's work, as this has the best ROI. E.g., if an analyst is spending a 100 hours of work that a bot can do in one hour, we calculate the 99 hours saved as ROI.
The pricing strategy for us is one license for development. It is more complicated than that depending on the options you choose.
Our costs are approximately between $5,000 to $10,000 per license.
One of the key features that we chose, the bot as a service or the BotFarm, when they launched version 11.3, they decided not to have the BotFarm anymore. This put us in a situation because we expected to have bots on demand, just like our cloud software. This would have been cost efficient for us to use. We hope to see this again being realized with A2019. I hope the scalability from an on demand basis improves.
They have a ridiculously expensive bot licensing structure, especially for the Asian region.
In the Indian market, I feel that for mid-size companies, such as ourselves, that having multiple bots costs a lot. If Automation Anywhere wants to expand in the Indian market, they will need to look at their pricing.
While calculating the setup cost you should account for the server, virtual machines, product licenses, maintenance costs, and running costs.

This solution has a very competitive and flexible pricing scheme that depends on the process complexity.
Licensing should be reduced and price should be cut down a bit.
This solution is priced less compared with other products.
Given how cheap it is to initially buy the product, the licensing methodology that they have in terms of renewing every year is appropriate. Later on, if they start charging more early on, for deployment, buying the license, and deploying it initially, then having a lower maintenance fee might be more appropriate. Now, with the scale they are at, it is an appropriate way to do the licensing.
There is some initial sticker shock from a lot of people regarding cost, until you show them what the actual benefit is. Initially, people are just going, "Why?" So, the retort for that is, "Look how much you will save, time, and budget-wise with one bot. If one bot costs X, this is how much it will save you over one year. This alleviates the "Oh my gosh" face, when it's 1200 dollars for a bot.
It would be nice if you could just buy the product instead of having the annual rate license renewals. It's expensive, but I guess we'll have to see what the ROI truly is.
I would like to have transparency in pricing. We're creating a lot of robotic process automation use cases all over the place. I'm never really clear on what the pricing model is and the skews.
Go download it, install it, and play with it. You can't do this with any of the other platforms.
