Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Improved Efficiency : Post RPA services, the efficiency and accuracy of the processes have increased tremendously and now the employees can focus more on important research and analysis work.""Easy to access: Without the need to download and install software on a local machine, we can access the RPA application from virtually anywhere.""V.11 has three different recorders but A2019 Automation Anywhere created an all-in-one recorder called Universal recorder which more reliable to use.""I love its reliability, ease of use, and the vast customer support that are always present to help us.""Error handling plays an important role when you schedule a bot because if you are not physically present and something happens, you need to know what has gone wrong.""The Object Cloning command is the most useful feature. Through the use of this command, between 30% and 40% of the process automation is complete.""SAP GUI Integration commands are highly useful while working with SAP applications and facilitate easy use of the software. This feature has been recently incorporated within the software and we have been using it to interface with SAP systems in development as well as production.""The advantage of Automation Anywhere is that you don't necessarily have to come from a programming background."

"The most valuable aspect for myself was access to the .net framework. If I couldn't figure something out using the objects that they had provided, I could bring in the .net objects and do so using similar logic that I would in a .net or C sharp coding language. Having that familiarity was helpful.""The workflow system is very intuitive.""They are leaders in the same industry.""The most valuable features are the loops to lookup tables to read the data.""The tech support is highly available and there is plenty of online training available.""The solution's ability to create adapters quickly is its most valuable feature.""It is really flexible in what it can do.""Pega Robotics offers all the required features to build end-to-end process automation like any other similar tools. It's unique development style using data line and control flow line makes it easy to debug through the flow."

Cons
"The API integration should be improved further since it is a bit difficult at the moment to connect with the API in the enterprise version.""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.""I feel the tool has to provide deeper insights for debugging issues, considering both internal and external factors.""While exporting a package, an option to de-select all the depending/referenced files should be available. Currently, it only allows for selecting all the files. Also, the views should be re-sizable as they are currently a fixed width. This would enable to view long file names easily eliminating any chances of exporting the wrong file.""Bots get disconnected from control rooms sometimes without any reason and this takes up a lot of time.""As a developer or user, I feel that the performance of the overall package could be made a little better or reliable. For example, if I'm opening up a heavy Excel file, which is uploaded in some shared drive over the net, and I have my box coded to open that Excel to do some work or formatting on it, and depending on the network load and the size of the file, this client version while trying to access that file becomes unstable at times. It goes into the hang position until a human being comes in, ends the task, and restarts it. Until this happens, it does not respond.""Custom models with advanced features can be included in the IQ Bot models for unstructured and semi-structured data.""The IQ Bot has not yet succeeded in living up to its reputation due to its high cost, low ROI, and its inability to meet client requirements."

"I would like to see an enhanced auditing feature included.""The development experience needs to be improved.""Pega has a no-code low-code environment. We do everything based on established rules. You kind-of have to learn how all their rules work and how it works for robotics before you can use the solution effectively.""The ease-of-use could be improved.""You cannot use a two-dimensional array to read the data.""I have faced many scenarios in the business workflow, where a few applications run on the Citrix environment. That could be a critical part of the process without which business won't be able to accept the automation solution. Because of one small bottleneck, you will lose a very good candidate for process automation.""The OCR capabilities of the solution could be improved.""The handwritten structured and semi-structured data recognition accuracy is much lower and is an area that definitely needs to improve."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Costs savings have been seen by employing bots for multiple shifts instead of people."
  • "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."
