Kryon RPA Valuable Features
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 »
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 »
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 »
