More AntWorks CMR+ Pros →

"I implemented AA in different environments, the AA installation is the smoothest compared to other RPA software installs.""There are many features of Automation Anywhere that were found to be most valuable like WLM, PDF integration, Advanced Excel Commands, Terminal Emulator and its commands, Interactive Forms building features of A2019 which helped us in developing UI for our front office automation and integrate it with multiple rest APIs.""We use AA Client, Bot runners, Control room, IQ Bot, Bot insights. With the AA Client, we are able to automate almost all kinds of automation requirements without any big challenges. We found the availability of the number of commands provided by AA is really helpful to do automation within a small time frame.""Object Cloning is the most valuable feature I have found for automating a website or a process that includes multiple mouse clicks.""While RPA is the cutting-edge technology to bring digital transformation, the RPA as a service will reduce costs and increase efficiency with ease of deployment, less maintenance, and cheaper upgrade costs.""I like all of the features, especially the MetaBot, REST API, and SAP DLL.""The feature of this solution that I like the most is that it is coding free - it is a coding free tool. It does not need much coding at all. For all the activities you just drag and drop. That is the best advantage of this tool.""Automation Anywhere has a uniqueness with respect to the IQ Bot."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pros →

"We would like to see the overall accuracy increase from approximately 70% to perhaps 85%."

More AntWorks CMR+ Cons →

"It is not able to use OCR effectively and has limited usability.""IQ Bot requires a significant improvement for its data detection and data retention, mainly from the previously trained documents: regarding the document's format, layout, data contained within the document, the type of data that needs to be extracted.""One area for improvement in Automation Anywhere (AA) is its monitoring system. It's not that good. Both scalability and stability are also areas for improvement in the tool.""The OCR can be a little better because sometimes while scrapping, it leads to data loss.""It should have more commands, which should remove the dependency on MetaBots or other scripts so that everything is available in the tool itself.""I would like to see a technology where they can automatically update or upgrade themselves to the latest version, without having to uninstall the current bot.""The error handling command on this solution still needs improvement, especially when compared to other platforms that are doing very well.""For assisted automation, the AA bot needs the facility to be triggered through an application interface after collecting input from the user."
