"The ROI on major bots has been phenomenal."
"The addition of excel advanced to directly append worksheets, add formulas, etc was very beneficial and made the code development faster."
"We have a bot running on a computer that is doing manual tasks that we used to do."
"I like all of the product features, but I mostly like to work with IQ Bots because they have cognitive automation capabilities."
"Tasks now don't depend upon the unavailability of certain employees/colleagues to be completed. Also, bots can run all day long which also affects the overall budgets."
"The advantage of Automation Anywhere is that you don't necessarily have to come from a programming background."
"The most valuable feature is the conversion of PDF Invoices to CSV and to PDF Boxes."
"Since it has capabilities to integrate with third-party applications easily, it makes the life of an automation engineer very easy."
"I find UFT One to be very good for thick clients, which are non-browser applications."
"The production and the efficiency of making your test cases can be very high."
"It helps in identifying defects earlier. With manual testing, that 15-day timeline meant there were times when we would find defects on the 11th or 12th day of the cycle, but with automation we are able to run the complete suite within a day and we are able to find the failures. It helps us to provide early feedback."
"I like the Help feature in UFT One. For example, if you are navigating a particular window, where there are different options. One wouldn’t know the purpose of every option, but there is no need to search because that window contains a Help button. If you click on that Help button, it directly navigates to the respective help needed. VBScript is very easy to understand and easy to prepare scripts with minimal learning curve."
"This product is easy to use, understand, and maintain."
"Has improved our organization by allowing us to obtain fast, detailed information about the behavior of our products and to supply this to the customer, enabling us to work together without the need for special programming knowledge."
"The interface is fine and there is nothing else to add in terms of enhancement."
"The solution has good out-of-the-box protocols."
"Especially while using v11, I often experience freezes with OCR extraction from PDF files."
"Automation Anywhere is not fully compatible with browsers other than Internet Explorer while working with web extraction."
"While using IQ Bot we found that data extraction accuracy is a bit weaker in semi-structured documents compared with structured documents. We would like to see improvement in the data extraction part of Automation Anywhere IQ Bot."
"I would like to see a global error handler introduced, which will explicitly handle errors over the entire project."
"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 vendor should increase the training and other engagements with users before they acquire the platform, as this will simplify its usage further and ensure that there no hindrances in using the platform."
"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."
"Our current version needs drag and drop, but that should be in the next release."
"There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to friction-free continuous testing across the software life cycle, as a local installation is required to run UFT."
"Technical support could be improved."
"The AI feature needs improvement. For banking applications, we input formatted text from documents, but the AI feature is recognizing three fields as one field, e.g., for a phone number, it puts all 10 digits in the international code or country code. Then, the script fails."
"[Tech support is] not a 10 because what happens with some of our issues is that we might not get a patch quickly and we have to hold on to an application until we get a proper solution."
"One of the drawbacks is that mobile performance testing is in need of improvement."
"Sometimes, the results' file size can be intense. I wish it was a little more compact."
"UFT has a recording feature. They could make the recording feature window bigger for whatever activities that I am recording. It would improve the user experience if they could create a separate floating panel (or have it automatically show on the side) once the recording starts."
"The overall design needs an entire overhaul. We prefer software designed to ensure the package isn't too loaded."
