Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The advantage of this tool is that it is a proven product. A lot of other products are quite new in the market.""The solution's technical support is very supportive.""I like that it has the capability of processing a high volume of documents with great accuracy.""Compared to other tools, ABBYY Vantage is better because it's very user-friendly.""ABBYY Vantage has reduced our data because it can classify and extract information from documents.""The OTR (Optical Text Recognition) is the most valuable feature of this solution.""The solution has its own language that can be configured many ways and with higher accuracy than other products.""The most valuable feature of ABBYY Vantage is flexibility. You are able to edit at a granular level providing good control over the process. Additionally, the brochures and guides were helpful in learning the solution."

More ABBYY Vantage Pros →

"The solution is very user-friendly and easy to use. It comes with pre-built automation. The tutorials are very helpful.""UiPath has helped reduce human error.""One feature that is particularly very likable is the My Workspace option under the Orchestrator menu. We can easily arrange and/or segregate all the folders there. The My Workspace option has been a very big positive for me. I've been able to streamline my work and do structured work with this My Workspace option.""Document processing is a valuable feature in UiPath.""A lot of our back-office business is driven around emails right now, and there's no automation whatsoever around any of that at the moment. That's where we're really looking to go.""Their core platform of Studio is valuable. The ease of use and the ability to build these automations quickly is definitely a highlight for us. Our average process from start to finish takes three to four weeks. We can knock out automations as quickly as we can identify them. That is probably the best feature I see.""With UiPath, we can automate any module, whether it is a desktop application, web application, or native application.""UiPath has helped speed up digital transformation and significantly reduced the cost of digital transformation."

More UiPath Pros →

"Initially, it was good, but now, in terms of ease of implementation and accuracy, there are better competitors in the market. What we are seeing in some of the other tools isn't there in ABBYY. They have to improve it to include such features. Otherwise, it will be difficult for them to compete in the market.""This solution could be improved by offering better integration with other platforms.""One major area that requires improvement in ABBYY Vantage is its current JSON output format.""Customization in the solution needs to be modified. In the future, I would like to see the product have better customization functionality.""The price for trainings or certifications are on the very, very high side.""ABBYY FlexiCapture could improve the performance. We are looking for better performance because it can be a lengthy capture process and the accuracy needs to be enhanced when it comes to Arabic.""ABBYY Vantage's reporting could be improved - they don't have any out-of-the-box or detailed advanced reports.""It would be good if the product provided an AI-based prebuilt model that predicts and gives output."

More ABBYY Vantage Cons →

"One thing that would be helpful is if the support team could quickly help us when we raise a ticket. It takes them at least one or two hours to get back to us. With Automation Anywhere, if there is a Severity 1 issue, their support responds within 15 minutes.""The tool needs to have more documentation and change logs. Minor upgrades break a few things.""UiPath should improve the test case criteria in future versions because the test cases are not well-designed. I feel everything is fine other than that.""One of my biggest frustrations with UiPath is that they're constantly changing the underlying technology and adding features, so you're not always in a stable state. You're looking at the next shiny thing, and that distracts us from our initiative. Because we work with the government, we must go through the security assessment process each time they change something. We have to pay the costs associated with reviewing their infrastructure.""The licensing could be more flexible.""The UiPath Academy courses could be improved, there are many courses, and some are more useful than others. I would also like to see improvements in course categorization to make it easier for newcomers to learn the solution.""We'd like to see mobile robots in the future.""A task capture feature enables you to capture the workflow from a process and record it. This feature isn't as specific as I would like. It should be able to capture every detail. The same goes for process mining when it comes to system loads. It's already the best, but I think it could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of ABBYY FlexiCapture is better than some competitors, such as OpenText."
  • "You need to purchase user licenses, and you also need to purchase the license for the pages. User licenses are required for your developers to use the developer tools, and you also need to ensure that there is a pool of licenses for the business users so that they can log in and perform their activities."
  • "They have a trial license that is limited to a certain number of pages. The paid license varies from six months to one year depending on the number of documents that need to be processed."
  • "It costs 5,000 Euro per year for one license. There are almost 500,000 pages available, so I think the price is good for what we have. It's worth the money."
  • "Our license is $6,000 and includes unlimited users for the verification station."
  • "The licenses for this solution are payable on a yearly basis, and are transferable from one year to the next, if they go unused. The license payment also includes a number of support hours from the vendor."
  • "The solution offers both cloud and on-premises models but the pricing is on the higher side."
  • "We were able to qualify for a reasonable price. The price is in the low to medium range compared to other solutions."
  • More ABBYY Vantage Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Its actual cost turned out to be about two times more than what we thought it was going to be upfront. There were hardware costs that we were not expecting. Some of the server costs and things of that nature were higher than what we were expecting but based upon the return, it was a net."
  • "In the RPA industry at the moment and in automation in general, UiPath's pricing model is the most consistent. So, if you are looking at year-on-year growth and pricing, or even if you are comparing solutions, each vendor has their own take on how they are going to generate profits and expand their return on investment. By far, UiPath is the most consistent with their pricing. They make it quite clear what they set out to achieve with their pricing and product. That makes their product so much easier to design for, as you don't need to change your pricing and go back to clients every time that you introduce a new aspect into the solution."
  • "Initially, the pricing was a lot more affordable. Now, it seems a bit excessive."
  • "Some of the licenses, such as for Document Understanding, are a little bit expensive. We hope that they will reduce the prices over time, but it's still something new. I understand that it cannot be given away too cheaply in the beginning."
  • "The cost is better than that of other solutions in the market, like Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism. Still, I would like to see them improve the pricing for small and mid-sized organizations... In some cases, if you compare the overall cost of the solution and the cost of human effort, the human effort is cheaper."
  • "UiPath changed the way that they do licensing, starting in 2022. Any partner that has status with them is now allowed to sell licenses, because UiPath itself does not sell licenses anymore."
  • "UiPath is an expensive solution but it is worth the money. You have a lot of features."
  • "Currently our clients are looking for cost optimization post-pandemic and UiPath comes at a high price point."

    Mauricio  Dias - PeerSpot reviewerMauricio Dias

    Hello dear Nesrin Benhayoun, hope you are doing fine. There are some big differences between them. I will name 2 of them which for me are the most important:

    1- FlexiCapture is an independent Platform. This means that you will be able to automate any department demand for documents context (now so called content), no matter this department "is, or is not" provided  with UiPath bot (or any other RPA Vendor). You have to think about FlexiCapture spread all over the organization, helping with any document demand.

    2- FlexiCapture has has more than 30 years experience, and developed extremely powerful intelligence layers, which since the beginning have been guided by AI and ML, and this will bring the organizations all over the world the ability to contextualize all the read fields, paragraphs, tables, images (personal pictures for instance) inside a document or inside a set of documents.

    Uipath is at the beginniing of its journey and also has ABBYY FlexiCapture as one of their strategy for IDP offers.

    If you want a real independent and faster IDP solution (no matter the RPA vendor) go for FlexiCapture and let the bots join when they arrive. You don't need for the bots, to start working with this powerful tool that will really scale your automation...anywhere.

    Celestine D. - PeerSpot reviewerCelestine D.

    I think Omar Madaeen has given the response very crisp and clear! When you use it with a a product along with its built in RPA and AI capabilities like UiPath it will become easy to move the process and address the complete value chain of process. 

    Omar Madaeen - PeerSpot reviewerOmar Madaeen

    Dear Nesrin,

    UIPath is using ABBYY FlexiCapture in their projects as an integration to the OCR capabilities, and UIPath AI is something different UiPath artificial intelligence (AI) allows you to scientifically discover automation opportunities and enhance your robots with AI Skills. Simply drag and drop these AI Skills into your workflows—and start automating more it has nothing to deal with OCR.

    Sahil Sharmaa - PeerSpot reviewerSahil Sharmaa
    Real User

    Abbyy Flexi Capture is an OCR solution. UiPath is an RPA platform solution.

    Abbyy Flexicapture mainly excels where Optical Character Recognition input is required (eg. Reading a physical bill and digitizing/extracting information from it) and it cannot interact with other computer applications.

    UiPath on the other hand can automate the overall processes themselves using excel, word or any other application that runs on a computer just like how a human does but faster and better.

    Questions from the Community
