More BotFarm Pros →

"This tool has machine learning and voice recognition and computer vision, which are both quite useful aspects. These aren't available in other tools. It's a good addition to this tool and it gives the solution an edge on the market.""The solution is continuously adding more integrations to help with workflows and bot and task creation.""The most valuable features for my client are timing and scheduling.""The most valuable feature is the drag-and-drop interface, which is very Windows-like.""The licensing of the product is very good. You only need to license it once and then you have it forever.""The pricing is excellent. I would give them perfect marks in that regard.""We have found the pricing to be very reasonable.""I actually quite liked the no-coding functionality."

Cons
"The dashboard needs improvement. For Bot Farm, the visualization is not that good compared to the main Automation Anywhere dashboard.""The solution automation is incapable of interacting with our Pega software application development. It is based on the nested table concept and it is unable to read these tables. Several projects have been put on hold because of that.""The discovery suite that they just acquired could be included.""The only challenge that we have faced with BotFarm is that there is no continuous deployment. The whole world is moving to the DevOps model, but BotFarm is still not on the DevOps model. It should have integration with the DevOps model. The migration of the bots or bots pipeline is currently purely manual.""When somebody is just learning this product it can be difficult for them to understand, so improvements to the user interface would be helpful.""I have called customer service three times and the experience has not been good. They do not offer 24/7 support, which forces us to wait till the next working day to solve a problem.""It would be ideal if the solution offered more language options, such as Arabic.""The deployment could be simplified."

More BotFarm Cons →

"It's possible that they could use a stronger community for seeking guidance and help.""The interface could be more user-friendly and easier to navigate.""The documentation is not that great.""The solution has a very weak knowledge base.""The vendor is currently working on a solution that allows us to automatically create a process that is based on a document that we receive via email.""Some companies have asked for voice integration. This is likely part of the roadmap.""The technical support could be better. We suffer from language barriers, as we are in Argentina.""They do not encrypt passwords, so this is an issue with HIPAA compliance."

    Overview

    BotFarm is an enterprise-level robotic process automation (RPA) solution. What is unique about BotFarm is that users can buy RPA processes based on demand and not be confined to a license or a strict capacity structure. BotFarm, a robust product of Automation Anywhere, is the only RPA solution that allows users to buy only the products they need when they need them. BotFarm allows users to launch all the robots they need to get tasks completed sooner and more efficiently than many other products in the marketplace today. This consumption-based business model will result in significant savings and increase an organization's overall profitability.

    BotFarm Benefits

    • Fast: Deployed bots can complete tasks significantly faster than any human component, and with less error.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Akshay P., Associate Systems Analyst at NSEiT Limited, relates, “It is very easy, simple. You're working on a notepad, and you don't need to know programming to work on this. The dashboards are quite good, especially on the latest versions.”

    A Digital Strategy Manager at an energy/utilities company shares, “The scalability is the solution's most valuable aspect. The reason Bot Farm is used is to have only one license available whenever you have a spike in the transactions. That is a core feature. That is something which we are using to the maximum. It's working well due to the fact that the solution use case is quite structured.”

    A Senior RPA Developer at a tech services company tells us, “The solution is great to automate any repetitive tasks, which you might do on a daily basis. For example, the organization may need to be generating invoices or extracting data from PDF files daily. It is very versatile in what you can automate. This has improved my organization by cutting down on repetitive tasks that now can be automated.”

    Modular dealership management system that includes service dispatching, accounts payable, vehicle merchandising, parts invoicing.
