Pros
"I love its reliability, ease of use, and the vast customer support that are always present to help us.""Recorders and Bot Insights are very valuable features.""It improved on 40+ % of manual effort which was a pain point for project budget and Project team SMEs.""I like all of the features, especially the MetaBot, REST API, and SAP DLL.""The advantage of Automation Anywhere is that you don't necessarily have to come from a programming background.""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.""It has definitely helped automating a lot of processes, but it is very difficult to build resilient bots. It is very difficult to find skilled developers in the market, who actually build resilient bots with appropriate error handling. Maintaining the bots is another challenge as the applications keep changing.""Bot Insights is neatly integrated into the platform, which enables us to develop rapidly and train the learning instances using pre-defined domains over the purchase orders, forms, and invoices that need to be processed."

"The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations.""This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features.""The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel.""The technical support is good.""The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems.""I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable.""The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity."

Cons
"Configuring A2019 and using it is getting a little difficult because of frequent errors of compatibility. It is not so user friendly like the enterprise desktop version.""Our current version needs drag and drop, but that should be in the next release.""The price is a little high and could be reduced.""I would like to see them continue building out documentation with more video-aides.""There should be more available Data Analytics and more AI Front and Deep Learn concepts.""The time taken to execute a Bot through A2019 can be reduced.""AA sometimes poses compatibility problems with new web browser versions like Chrome.""Setting up Automation Anywhere is a bit complex."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons →

"WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems.""The OCR functionality needs to be improved.""The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions.""The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses.""One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition."

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."
