Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ability to automate our processes with external plug-ins and zero code is the most valuable feature.""The chatbot that they have is most valuable. It is one of the best features because they own it, and they don't need to integrate with other parties to have a chatbot. This is one of the main features. The rest of the features are common to all RPA tools or vendors available in the market.""The most valuable feature of AutomationEdge is creating accounts.""If we want to change your processes, we can code it from scratch, making it a beneficial feature of the product.""The initial setup was easy and straightforward.""Stability-wise, I rate the solution a nine out of ten...I rate the technical support of the solution a nine out of ten.""The support from the vendor is very good.""The product's most valuable feature is the executor."

"The process design work and the workflow management and the custom templates, those features are the most valuable to us right now.""I love it for the deep artificial intelligence that it has. It has the AI to recognize the processes, analyze all the workflows through user interactions, and discover automation opportunities. It is very intelligent in these aspects.""The UiPath Apps feature has helped to reduce the workload for our IT department by enabling end-users to create apps. Even some of the business people have been trained to do that. They have been able to build small, attended bots.""We like how UiPath is designed for low-code or no-code users. It's less complicated, enabling everyone to use it with only a basic knowledge of automation or data. Generally, I also like UiPath's ability to mine processes and analyze user interactions to generate analytics.""They have robust libraries we can use to automate a wide range of tasks, and UiPath integrates with multiple technologies. It's an excellent platform with many valuable features we find useful in our business.""The UiPath Academy was pretty helpful for us in the initial stages.""The pricing is fairly decent.""There are two features that I like a lot in UiPath: one is the Orchestrator option, and the other one is the Studio option."

More UiPath Pros →

"The price of the solution could be improved.""It's not an intuitive tool.""With other automation solutions in the market, we can simulate the process in our notebooks where the solution creates the code for us, but with AutomationEdge we can't do this.""The ease of use is the main thing on which they really have to focus. If they want to go against the giants, it should be improved in ease of use, and it should be more user-friendly. It would be helpful because everyone should be empowered irrespective of whether they know how to code or not. They should enhance its user interface and make it more intuitive.""The installation process could improve. It was difficult to complete.""AutomationEdge's ecosystem has shortcomings and needs improvement. When we compare AutomationEdge to other RPA tools in our company, we find that it has a very minor online community.""With the solution, customizing software can be time-consuming.""There are some shortcomings in the product's stability that need improvement."

More AutomationEdge Cons →

"An area for improvement I saw in UiPath is API integration, particularly with Microsoft. If you compare my experience with Power Automate in terms of integration, it is seamless. Integration via Power Automate is easy, more of dragging and dropping and then starting, which is still not the case with UiPath.""UiPath's built-in integration with Python scripts could be more robust so that I do not have to depend on another technology and I can do everything on one platform.""While I like the Academy a lot, it could maybe go deeper into some of the topics.""It sometimes lags when internet connectivity is poor. It depends on the location.""We have had issues with Ingram Micro. It happened that we ordered licenses and we received something else. It takes a relatively long time, two and sometimes even three weeks, after the order until we receive licenses, and clients are sometimes a little bit impatient. This is something that should be accelerated.""UiPath can probably work on improving the AI features. We tried UiPath's AI functionality in our automation program. We did some research on that, but right now, nothing is in production. When we did some research, we weren't getting the expected results. We weren't completely satisfied with the results, so we put it aside. It could be a drawback on our side in terms of learning the tool.""Our challenge with UiPath is getting the infrastructure assets up to speed, particularly on the Orchestrator side. However, I just now came from a demo for UiPath Web, and it seems to be to enable serverless robots, which would definitely be a lower barrier to entry.""Integration is an area for improvement. I still encounter issues with it, like getting errors when I try to use a connection."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If you are looking for a budget solution, you can consider AE. It has all the features. Scaling it is way easier because of the cost itself."
  • "I give the price of the solution a nine out of ten."
  • "Pricing can be made better. Currently, I think the pricing is based on the market. The pricing also depends on the business partners that offer you the solution."
  • "Price-wise, AutomationEdge is pretty affordable, making it not so expensive when you compare this with other tools in the market."
  • More AutomationEdge Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Over and above the subscription fees, we're paying probably $51,000 a year right now."
  • "It is pricey at the beginning, but we'll have to see going forward what we get for the tools. It is always expensive to buy a really nice car and not drive it very far and very much. So, it is about utilization."
  • "The pricing for the robots is fair. One thing that annoys us a little bit is that we have to pay for each developer. With Blue Prism, you can have 20 developers and not incur any additional costs. We don't like having to piecemeal all these different licenses. It is providing value, but it is not in the sense of a robot. You're paying for the tools, whereas other people just give you the tools, and then you pay for the bots."
  • "Its actual cost turned out to be about two times more than what we thought it was going to be upfront. There were hardware costs that we were not expecting. Some of the server costs and things of that nature were higher than what we were expecting but based upon the return, it was a net."
  • "In the RPA industry at the moment and in automation in general, UiPath's pricing model is the most consistent. So, if you are looking at year-on-year growth and pricing, or even if you are comparing solutions, each vendor has their own take on how they are going to generate profits and expand their return on investment. By far, UiPath is the most consistent with their pricing. They make it quite clear what they set out to achieve with their pricing and product. That makes their product so much easier to design for, as you don't need to change your pricing and go back to clients every time that you introduce a new aspect into the solution."
  • "Initially, the pricing was a lot more affordable. Now, it seems a bit excessive."
  • "Some of the licenses, such as for Document Understanding, are a little bit expensive. We hope that they will reduce the prices over time, but it's still something new. I understand that it cannot be given away too cheaply in the beginning."
  • "The cost is better than that of other solutions in the market, like Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism. Still, I would like to see them improve the pricing for small and mid-sized organizations... In some cases, if you compare the overall cost of the solution and the cost of human effort, the human effort is cheaper."
