What is most valuable?The bot is typically about twice as fast as a person and more accurate, as long as the data going in is good. That is the biggest advantage. I do like the feature if you… more»
How has it helped my organization?Our company has seen crazy growth over the last 10 to 12 years. We have been up 20 percent year-over-year for that amount of time. Without some of this automation, we… more»
What needs improvement?Process Discovery is brand new. We are on 19.1 for it. I know on 19.2 that they change the architecture completely. From talking to some other companies that use this, it… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?They license per robot and we have 25 robots. You get so many robot licenses and can allocate those licenses to either attended, unintended, or Process Discovery bots. If… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?This is the first RPA solution that my company has used. Someone in the business found the solution. We weren't in a position where we were actually looking for it. One of… more»
What other advice do I have?I would really recommend the tool. I definitely see a lot of value with it. Just in the few release notes that I have read for some of the versions they've released since… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We also looked at Blue Prism. We just briefly looked at some demos, then we even got pricing, but we were sold from the get-go with the Kryon tool because it was so… more»

What is most valuable?We have relied heavily on the the data group base integration features, as well as the email and Exchange integration features. The ability to integrate with Office makes life a lot easier. One of the… more»
How has it helped my organization?It has benefited our organization through automated rates and pricing. We built an automated rate system that runs four times a day. Our initial analytics coming back from that rate system for a… more»
What needs improvement?This need for improvement deals with the Office APIs in it. There have been some times when dealing with the macro interactions that we have had to build our own way of executing those macros rather… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Previously, we had tiny bits of automation, but it wasn't automation like this. It was more scripted automation. Just people running bash scripts to perform certain things for them. There was never… more»
What other advice do I have?Take your time. Don't rush it. Ensure that you have a few good use case scenarios to start working with, because if you don't have something to work on right out of the gate, the system will just be… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Kryon came into the picture before I did. In the past, I know that we informally looked at a couple other products, but we never went in-depth with them. Once we picked Kryon, we stuck with Kryon. We… more»

Helps us find and prioritize processes that are ripe for automation, while .NET plugins make it scalable
What is most valuable?We do have bots where we use .NET plugins to make some of them faster, but other than those, I have built most of the bots that we have. Even though I'm in IT, I'm a… more»
How has it helped my organization?We have a bot that creates a proposal using a request-for-proposal template that people fill out. We then create the proposal, based on that information, on our internal… more»
What needs improvement?At first, we had problems with the object detection but in this latest release it has been better, and I think it keeps getting better. They also came and trained us a… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The OCR reader, to help read non-digital PDFs, has a separate charge. We don't have that plugin. The only other cost that I know was separate, at the time, is the Process… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We did not have a prior solution.
What other advice do I have?The biggest lesson we've learned through our time using it is the .NET component for scaling. One of our biggest lessons is to use that wherever possible because it makes… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We evaluated Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism. I wasn't involved in all of that process, but the biggest thing in our decision to go with Kryon was that IT didn't need… more»

What is most valuable?The recording capability is valuable because of the amount of data it captures automatically. It's quite good. It means less development, and fewer configuration settings to fill in after you're done… more»
How has it helped my organization?Kryon has saved us a bunch of money and time. Specifically, it sends reminders out for claims that have not been actioned after a set period of time; for example, dormant claims, which haven't been… more»
What needs improvement?Process Discovery currently is not working for us. It's not giving correct information, correct stats. It's an issue that is currently open with Kryon as a ticket that they are investigating. In our… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?With this client, there was no other solution in use. I use some, myself, as a consultant with other clients. I've been here for the last almost two years. Prior to that, I used Cherwell which is more… more»
What other advice do I have?You do need someone with some development knowledge. Not necessarily everybody involved has to know development, but as a resource, it would definitely be important to have. A straight business-user… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Automation Anywhere was the other one they were considering. I think they looked at a couple of others, but that was before I was here. I saw the paperwork comparing the final two and they were Kryon… more»

It is very easy to learn and implement, but the products has limitations due to its lack of interoperability with Citrix
What is most valuable?The simplicity of it: Kryon was very easy to learn and implement. The learning curve was very small. It didn't take a lot of time to set up or go live. It is easy for… more»
How has it helped my organization?It has been helpful in reducing the manpower and error rate since we are able to run tasks 24/7 without interruptions. As humans definitely take breaks and there may be… more»
What needs improvement?While it does help reduce manpower, we still do require manpower because there are some processes and steps that we cannot do with automation. It may be too sensitive to… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Our workforce management (WFM) team is managing the licensing costs.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?This is our first RPA solution. We did try automation with Visual Studio, like encoding, but it was a failure. We thought RPA would be a better solution: easier to… more»
What other advice do I have?It is a good solution if you're not using any virtual machines, like Citrix. It would be better if you get a demo or automate a simple task using Kryon. Get them to show… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Kryon was our choice. Our project manager brought in Kryon team for a demo. Once we saw the features, we did a test with their training specialist, then we were convinced… more»

What is most valuable?Its ability to work with multiple platforms within the same application or "wizard". Some of the SQL functionality has also been extremely helpful. All of our platforms… more»
How has it helped my organization?We have some idea of what we wanted to start with. We have been able to expand on that since embracing Kryon a bit more. We originally went into this solution knowing… more»
What needs improvement?The read from screen functionality needs improvement We still do a lot of stuff in the user interface. Finding UI information and split UI need improvement. I would like… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Licensing costs are about $100,000 a year without any additional costs.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We have used other RPA tools previous to my time at LTCG. None of them were successful after the original deployment. Therefore, we decided to wash the project. While I… more»
What other advice do I have?Understand that you need to have a very well-documented framework of what you plan to automate. Not necessarily the idea of, "I want to automate this task." But, as a… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We had requests out to four vendors: Kryon, UiPath, Automation Anywhere, and Blue Prism. Kryon did not end up being the most financially inexpensive, but it did make the… more»

How has it helped my organization?The currency automation saves us around five minutes per day, but it has to be done every day. For this one, the amount of time is irrelevant. It's more that there are many processes that rely on the currency. So if it hasn't been done or… more»
What needs improvement?I think our version is two versions behind. I just had a talk about it last week with our account manager at Kryon and we planned together to upgrade the environment once per year. In my opinion, today, if possible, it would be better to… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We have a yearly license. It's about $5,000 per year. There are no additional costs other than that a server has a license.
What other advice do I have?Take the training course. At least the person who is going to program the robots has to have some background in information systems in general and in more specific, operation systems, in programming and in Office, of course. He has to have… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Initially, our CIO came up with the idea and brought Ernst Young in to implement it in our organization. In the first meeting we had with EY, they put two RPA systems on the table, Kryon and another which I don't remember. They gave the… more»

How has it helped my organization?The process I noted above is a main business area with a lot of very specific processes inside - we have now more than 15 specific processes in this business area. All of them, as of now, have saved us almost six FTEs. That's a lot of… more»
What needs improvement?What we are lacking is OCR, the ability to read text. We would like it to have the ability to take a page which is free text and analyze it, and then for the robot to know what to do next. This ability does not exist in Kryon products, so… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The first robot was very expensive. For us, there are the additional implementation costs that we paying to HMS.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Prior to Kryon, we didn't work with another solution. But we are now starting to work with another solution because of OCR.
What other advice do I have?We have a lot of people coming to us to learn from our process, so we've been providing advice already. First of all, it's important to do a very smart business analysis, from the business side, and not automate exactly the way it was done… more»
