Kryon RPA Valuable Features

Adam Staude
Manager, Application Support at a consumer goods company with 1,001-5,000 employees
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 find an opportunity that it is very simple to export the recording of that process and import it into Kryon Studio as a starting point to build that automation. It's a really good tool for our business process managers because they can take all that information to their constituents in their departments. Even if it's not robot automation, they have an opportunity to improve the process as a whole. I find that that is an added benefit to this piece of the tool. Just using it as a place to start the conversation and really look at what people are doing on a day-to-day basis. Because managers may be aware of their people's tasks, but might not know the level of manual effort that it takes to do certain tasks. We are finding this helpful. Also, building it in Studio and deploying it into production is a seamless process. It is all very simple and easy to use. It is just great to be able to traverse software platforms. With all the variable handling and logic that it has, It is an easy tool for a non-technical person to work with and automate across apps. Some of our business people are like, "It's like a giant macro. It works with everything." I'm like, "Yeah, at the basic core, it's a giant macro." We primarily use it for unattended bots, so it's pure. We don't use any attended bots. So, it's all completely automated using email triggers. The bot will put in whatever data it receives and it has been really quite effective. The tool helps with speed to market on anything that we are doing. It is such a quick tool to use if you're doing any sort of automation, even if it's just SQL based. View full review »

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 things that we do is interact with a lot of Excel worksheets and their information without having to load up the Excel worksheets themselves. Instead, we are able to pull the data directly from them and do the manipulations that we need, then put them back into the spreadsheet or into another worksheet without having to wait for Excel to load. The ability to integrate with a database is a big perk from a scalability standpoint. Our automated processes for our rate programs are driven by database entry. We also use databases for our queuing systems and reporting purposes. It is proving to be the backbone of our analytics side of tracking and monitoring our automated processes and systems. We have been using Kryon Process Discovery for about a year now. With our initial tests and monitoring just a couple people, we were able to identify 79 possible use cases within a one-month period. For developers, Kryon is quite easy to use. I come from a scripting background. Adapting from scripting over to working in Kryon's development environment is very simple. It was an easy adjustment. It is easy to move things through testing and into production. From a development standpoint, it is a pretty streamlined, straightforward process. View full review »

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 business analyst. As a business user, it's so easy to use. With the recording of the processes, we didn't need to hire a specific developer. We do have one now because there was only one of me, but we are able to build most of our processes without having to develop the actual development skillset. It's nice to have that skillset here, because we can scale by using .NET, but the simplicity is the biggest win. View full review »

IT Consultant & Robotics Business Analyst at a insurance company with 201-500 employees
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. It's quite easy to use, end-to-end, minus the Process Discovery piece. The ease of use is probably the best part about it. For developers, the program is very user-friendly. View full review »

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 business users to utilize. Mostly, it is a visual based tool. You don't need any expert coding knowledge. Even if you don't know anything about coding, a couple of weeks training should do the trick, as long as you are able to identify the logic behind whatever task you're going to automate.

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 are homegrown. We don't use an out-of-the-box software, which makes our availability to using RPA software suites pretty limited. Then, you have a product like Kryon which is flexible. We use PowerBuilder as our application building codex. Kryon adds flexibility when we have the functionality of SQL, where we can take sets of data out of the back-end and run complex computations or do a bunch of data validations inside the wizard. It can save us sometimes dozens of steps, then if we were to try and do those same reviews using the user interface completely. The balance that we get from using Kryon RPA, alongside being able to screen scrape and frequent screen, gives us an advantage that we haven't had previously with any of our other attempts at robotic process automation. Kryon Process Discovery is a very exciting thing. We are rolling it out to approximately 100 VM machines, but we will be using it comprehensively for the next few years, as long as we can get it rolled out here soon and start gathering more information. It's been a very exciting thing for us here at LTCG. We haven't finished rolling out Process Discovery. We only have it on three computers right now for the test environment. However, one of the most complex tasks that we are using two full-time employees to do was have it record and monitor these employees, along with all its variations, and how they are working through a process. We then exported that from Process Discovery into Studio. Now, instead of starting from scratch on a process that a developer wouldn't know, we have a framework and outline on how to make that work from end-to-end. View full review »

The best feature is its reporting. The core features of Kryon are the best. In addition, the number of commands it gives us to edit and modify is really good. It also captures screen activities and plays them back. I'm a technical guy, so it's very easy for me to do it. If I imagine giving this to a business guy, it is really amazing, because he knows what action he is going to perform. View full review »
Director of Information Management and Development at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
One of the main features is its ability to connect into literally everything we've got here. Some of that was easier; some of it took some extra labor. But all in all, it has the capability to connect and to interact with almost every system that we have. That's the main feature. The next feature is the triggers. It's relatively simple to activate it. You can activate it via Control-M or via email. It has a lot of built-in triggers which enable us to easily activate the jobs. The third is the support. We have great support from the guys here. It's not the product itself, but let's call it the "ecosystem" of the product. We have a strong product owner, and they respond very quickly to every question we have. That's a good thing. View full review »
Director of Process Engineering at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The thing that we find the most value in is the Process Discovery component and the ability to really see what users are doing on a day-to-day basis. We're starting to make sense of the processes that they're doing and getting visibility into what they're doing. Overall, the Process Discovery is very good. The product is very new to the market so there have been some issues here and there but Kryon support has been great in working through that. It has really helped us drive understanding of what's happening. It certainly helps us understand the work the users are doing, the like things they're doing, and it helps us filter some of that work. View full review »
BI and Data Warehouse Developer at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
The recording feature enables us to record what we're doing, like typing or clicking the mouse, and to identify objects on the screen. We basically teach the program how to type, instead of a person. That's the most powerful feature. That's valuable for us because it's the only way we can automate this process. View full review »

All our users have no technical background. But Kryon is really simple and intuitive. Our business adapted very quickly and easily. This is the main thing and it's why we love the system so much. It's why we are always trying to put more processes into the system and make more use cases: because of the simplicity and the intuitive nature of the system. View full review »
Jared Wright
Operations Technology Specialist at Aquent
The advanced Excel functionalities are really convenient because we work a lot with spreadsheets. It’s also easy to use the HTML selectors on most major sites. It’s just a click and it picks it up. There’s not a lot of no hard-coding with it. While I have some technical background, everything is self-taught. I'm not necessarily a developer myself, but picking up the tool, with the training they provided, has been pretty easy. I’m currently the only person using the tool in our company. View full review »
Guy Blat
Head of BI and Process Automation at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We use Kryon Studio to develop new wizards and we use the features to capture elements from the screen and automate processes. We use the product thoroughly. The screen capture allows us to interface with systems which don't have an API, or where the API is very expensive, and it allows us to do on-screen integration. The automation process is very user-friendly and the usability is very good. Developers are very satisfied with the system. View full review »

Apart from the usual advantages (recording etc), I think the process that is presented as 'Powerpoint' slides makes it really easy to close the gap between the subject matter expert and the person configuring the robot. View full review »
