Pros
"Automation Anywhere improved our organization since it saved us a lot monetary value.""I'd say the most impactful and heavily or commonly used ability of v11 and A2019 has been the ability to integrate other code types and operations within the process.""The Bot Store is an online library where anybody can find variously developed, production-ready bots.""Easy to access: Without the need to download and install software on a local machine, we can access the RPA application from virtually anywhere.""The tutorials that are available from Automation Anywhere are very helpful for newbies to learn the platform and get going with the tool.""The most valuable feature is recording in the Control Room, as it allows me to chose what I want to have recorded, ensuring that I get the right thing on time.""The biggest challenge in attended automation, every time the agent has to log in to the control room and execute bot for most of the agents this is a time-consuming activity plus they are not tech-savvy""Earlier users were converting the unstructured data from the PDF into the structured format to process the task but now, this activity is replaced by IQ Bot."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pros →

"The most valuable features are the Excel activities. It has a number of Excel activities that are quite reliable.""The most valuable feature is that it is easy to use.""The cognitive features of this solution are good.""The Robotic Desktop Automation Express component allows us to do rapid development outside the normal, time-consuming processes.""WorkFusion's RPA Express's ability to scale across multiple geographies with limited impact on additional IT Hardware requirements. This has enabled the scaling of Robotics capabilities and solutions across all our entities.""For automating mundane activities, I can recommend WorkFusion.""The solution is stable, we have not had any glitches or problems.""It's a pretty robust product."

Cons
"Going on-cloud comes with security hiccups and concerns.""There should be more available Data Analytics and more AI Front and Deep Learn concepts.""IQ Bot has some limitations that should be improved in future releases.""Intelligent automation is currently a buzz and I would love to see more innovation in this segment.""Having fewer connection instances would make it more secure, more simple to troubleshoot, and possibly more flexible with the type of applications in use.""Though IQ Bot is the most powerful and effective cognitive OCR platform for data extraction in the market, still, there is a lot of scope for improvement as there are a lot of non-standard documents which do not give a high straight-through processing rate and accuracy.""Automation Anywhere can be improved in certain areas specified in the cognitive zone where the information needs better OCR Engine + Machine Learning capabilities. Also, they can improve on the System Identified region function of the IQ Bot - Our team faced a tough time in handling that as we were not able to assign variable to System Identified Region as the IQ Bot tool wasn't allowing it.""I feel the tool has to provide deeper insights for debugging issues, considering both internal and external factors."

More Automation Anywhere (AA) Cons →

"The user experience could be better both from an RPA perspective and from a business perspective.""The solution is not user-friendly, this is something they should improve.""This is a Java-based application that takes up a lot of space and when it runs, consumes a lot of memory. This affects the reliability because it gets to a point where it hangs.""One of the issues that we are facing here in China, is that we cannot access the material for training because it is on YouTube. In China, we do not have access to YouTube.""I would also like for it to be NLP-based.""The product needs to be "simple and easy" to use. A good example of this is the use of Python code to perform automations. It is free and the skills transfer is able to happen quickly and the operation and initiation of the completed automation is easy to execute.""We are having some database issues, but we are addressing them.""We have had some problems in the past with the Inspector tool that looks at the elements on the screen. Replacing it or improving it is needed."

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."
  • More Automation Anywhere (AA) Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest."
  • "I can't speak to pricing. It's a contract signed by upper management."
  • "We are on an annual contract to use the solution."
  • "My client is using RPA Express, which is available for them to use free of charge."
