Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is stable, we have not had any glitches or problems.""We have seen Workfusion improve on accuracy and compliance... With the Workfusion model, we reduce human error and the need for further QC. We switch more to a QA process where we're testing whether the model is effective.""We recommend different solutions based on our customers' needs, and WorkFusion is what we offer for those who need a premium solution.""It takes care of simple tasks so users can focus more on exceptions than on regular use cases. They only focus on orders where they need to handle an exception, some information was not given, or there is an issue that they had to focus on. The rest of it goes straight through without human touch. We want to see our employees as engineers, wherein they think and solve problems, not necessarily have to do repetitive tasks. I think WorkFusion helps with avoiding repetitive tasks.""The most valuable features are the Excel activities. It has a number of Excel activities that are quite reliable.""Their robots have increased the rate of efficiency by two to five times in our organization. There is still a human element to code out the package running the robots. You can't just click something and have it run. However, once that has been done, you can parallelize it 10 or 100 times in a fairly straightforward manner.""The document processing engine is good. We're extracting around 70 data points from a given document, and we have an automated extraction rate of 80 percent for those fields.""The cognitive features of this solution are good."

"The initial setup is very quick."

More Another Monday Pros →

"I like all of the product features, but I mostly like to work with IQ Bots because they have cognitive automation capabilities.""This RPA software has good scalability and stability, is easy to understand and easy to use, even for users who have no experience with automation software.""We have leveraged automation to increase economies of scale and value-added work while reducing operating costs.""On the server-side, multiple developers working on a single project can save their individual works and have them stored in a single repository.""The tutorials that are available from Automation Anywhere are very helpful for newbies to learn the platform and get going with the tool.""We have a bot running on a computer that is doing manual tasks that we used to do.""The robust and flexible nature of the product gives it the capability to automate almost all rule-based processes in each and every ERP application that is currently available in the market.""Implementation of Automation Anywhere (AA) allows us to automate business processes and has brought productivity gains, error reduction, and speed of execution in multiple HR and Finance operations."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pros →

Cons
"One thing we didn't like was their OCR solution. We felt it's somewhat inefficient.""The user experience could be better both from an RPA perspective and from a business perspective.""There is enhanced functionality I would like to see, things that would further enhance the user experience, deliver greater efficiencies, and further mitigate risk.""We are having some database issues, but we are addressing them.""We had some issues in the past, but it is fairly stable now. From what I hear, it is more stable in the later versions. With version 10.1.4, there were some issues relating to load distribution. However, it is good now.""There could be better version control through their web platform. That is something that could be improved on. Integration from the IDE, e.g., from WorkFusion Studio directly into Control Tower, would be nice to have too.""We have had some problems in the past with the Inspector tool that looks at the elements on the screen. Replacing it or improving it is needed.""So far, we have developed only one automation using machine learning. The results were less than optimal. Part of this could be because of the use case that was selected. Overall, our experience was suboptimal. WorkFusion was an outstanding partner in terms of providing their experts for free to help us on that particular use case, but we still have a lot of things to figure out in terms of how to use its machine learning capability."

More WorkFusion Cons →

"The solution should come with language customization, which would simplify its use for our customers."

More Another Monday Cons →

"The IQ Bot could use improvement.""Replacing the list of search options with voice commands for each item would be great.""A2019 should have more improvement for developers, as it was in v11.x.""I feel A2019 is still not completely ready and the discontinuing of version 11 is a negative impact for all of the users and clients.""The OCR can be a little better because sometimes while scrapping, it leads to data loss.""The accuracy in Web Recorder needs to be improved, defective outputs found most of the time(not sure if is a website side issue).""My experience has been that if the person who codes the bot is not very well-trained, then they might create unstable bots. So, it's not the platform. It is just how somebody has coded the bots which can bring lot of instability to them. I recommend that when you are using a coder that the person well-trained and have a good amount of experience already working on bots. They shouldn't be newbie or beginner who comes in to code because that will impact the quality of the code itself.""The Automation Anywhere Control room component features can be improved, as of now it contains too many roles and rules which makes it confusing to use it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest."
  • "I can't speak to pricing. It's a contract signed by upper management."
  • "We are on an annual contract to use the solution."
  • "My client is using RPA Express, which is available for them to use free of charge."
  • "One upgrade took a year to do, from the first server being built to the last bot being migrated. This was because we had to migrate all our existing bots. This is the same process and time frame that we are expecting towards the upcoming upgrade. I will end up spending half a million dollars to do an upgrade."
  • "The solution was not the cheapest, but it was also not the most expensive. Workfusion was very open to negotiating pricing and to working within the objectives of our firm."
  • "As a first-time customer who wants to engage with WorkFusion, not working for my company, then I would want to do a PoC. The cost is prohibitive because they will ask me to get infrastructure with six or seven servers. Then, you must buy a WorkFusion license to do a PoC, which is expensive. I would then have to set up a team to build the PoC and see the benefits. That is very prohibitive."
  • "We have a good deal from WorkFusion. We have an unlimited global licensing deal with WorkFusion. For us, it is a no-worry solution. We can go ahead and use it as much as possible anywhere we need it. If WorkFusion has a different kind of a deal for licensing with others, then their business decisions need to be evaluated based on that."
  • More WorkFusion Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "There is no licensing fee for our customers."
  • More Another Monday Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "My only suggestion in terms of pricing is very generic and that is to consider that as much as RPA saves cost and does automation, please get a realistic estimation done on whether you are really achieving any ROI over your investment with RPA."
  • "It is one of the most affordable RPA solutions, and as for licensing, they offer a community edition that greatly helps anyone who aspires to learn about the product before buying the enterprise solution."
  • "The price of this product is good."
  • "I don't deal have cost specifics but I can say it is a tool that provides value for the money."
  • "Pricing is affordable and I would recommend beginning with the Starter Package."
  • "The pricing and licensing are definitely moderate to costly but easily recoverable by achieving ROI quickly."
  • "Automation Anywhere is flexible in terms of costing and licensing."
  • "From my experience, I can say that the initial setup cost is easily recovered over a period of time once the bots start running in production."

As the only automation software provider with deep vertical expertise, WorkFusion offers pre-built solutions for your mission-critical processes, such as customer lifecycle management, insurance claims processing, or patient record management. Because of advanced AI and ML technologies including AutoML, Continuous Learning, Differential Privacy, and Federated Learning, WorkFusion’s solutions yield 95%+ out-of-the-box automation rates for various document types, including fully unstructured sources such as emails or news articles. 

    WorkFusion has been recognized as a Leader in both RPA and Intelligent Document Processing categories and has received the highest ranking for the "Augment Knowledge Workers" and "Document Processing" use cases by Gartner Critical Capabilities assessment.

    Building a fully-automated robotic process environment where robot
    workers performed an equivalent volume of work of over 1,500 full-time
    virtual employees required the careful development and optimization of
    an RPA-architecture.
    We created an architecture that embodies the best practices of both
    RPA-methodology and RPA-tools. These two components defined automation
    best practices like the enforcing of a rigorous process mapping and a
    process automation design approach that captures every action for all
    workflow possibilities and exceptions. Further, this enables a bot that
    could seamlessly recover from exception-based failures. Ultimately,
    that delivers industrial-grade performance at scale!
