Pros
"WLM & Device Pool, where multiple devices perform the same thing parallel and complete the tasks at the same time. The credential manager for security is one of the most valuable features for storing credentials and providing security between the developer usage and future maintenance where passwords expire every 90 days.""The scheduling feature allows for scheduling of the bots to a specific time every day, which helped remove the dependency on humans completely.""We have a lot of clients who use AA bots in their own process. Automated that are automated require less human input. AA bots save lots of time, increase efficiency, deliver accurate output, and provide consistency which improves the overall function of processes in different domains.""The addition of excel advanced to directly append worksheets, add formulas, etc was very beneficial and made the code development faster.""AA has good coverage in terms of out-of-the-box functionality for bot development and management.""Automation Anywhere has improved my organization by automating many rule-based and nonjudgmental processes in domains like telecommunications, human resources, financial services, and daily or monthly reporting.""It has improved a lot. We could identify a lot of manual processes that can be automated for our customers. The scope of automation by using Automation Anywhere has become wonderful. IQ Bot and AI sense are the incredible features provided.""AA has improved our digital strategy extensively and provided the required leverage to place ourselves above other peers in the O&G Industry. We were able to develop quick digital solutions by demonstrating the ROI and gain momentum by aligning the desired resources & budget from leadership."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pros →

"The development time for ProcessRobot is very good compared to other solutions.""This product is the best in terms of price and capabilities.""I have found the scheduling and email notifications features to very good compared to other RPA tools I have used.""It is very easy to learn and use. It is quite useful for any sort of back-office work. Any kind of work with low and medium complexity is very doable in ProcessRobot. For higher complexity, some refinement is required, but it is doable.""The most valuable features of this solution are the cost and ease of use, it's very simple.""The interface is user-friendly.""This solution improved the reporting in our organization. The financial department was doing a lot of copy pasting from different sources to create financial reports. Through ProcessRobot, we were able to automate all those copy pasting and produce all those financial reports overnight."

Cons
"I would like to see them continue building out documentation with more video-aides.""MetaBot still needs to be optimized, though Version 11.3 did integrate all the commands into it. We are not able to see all the lines of code which are executed in MetaBot.""You could improve the tools for reading CSV/Excel, also providing wizards or detailed guides, otherwise, it is quite complex to use them, especially at the beginning.""The accuracy in Web Recorder needs to be improved, defective outputs found most of the time(not sure if is a website side issue).""We have a challenge in our front office automation where capturing details from a table within a table does not happen in the existing AA Enterprise client version 11.3.4. The AA team tries various methods like using an Excel spreadsheet to capture the tables.""We had a few setbacks because of bots getting queued and unable to force delete a task bot which kept persisting in the control room. These features should be included in future releases which will be highly beneficial.""Queues are great but need improvement. They are helpful because most of the automations are transaction-based.""Automation Anywhere should add a couple of commands which will help most developers not to always use a script, a good example is in String operations."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons →

"In an upcoming release, the exception handling mechanism could improve. The issue that we are facing is whenever there is a failure in any of the middle execution and if you wanted to navigate it to the end of the last line of execution, we do not have this feature available. If we had this feature it would make it even more stable.""Better support is needed for building custom components on top of ProcessRobot.""We are looking to see more features implemented there are already available in UiPath or Automation Anywhere.""This solution should be more resilient, with robots more capable of recovering after an error.""It should be more stable, and their technical support should be faster. It should also have more integration with tools from other vendors, such as SAP and Oracle, and technology partners, such as Salesforce.""Some automation features on some programs did not work smoothly.""They need to come up with a little more on AI and precision discovery path to be able to record the processes."

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."

  • "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."

  • "Automation Anywhere is flexible in terms of costing and licensing."
