We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The dashboards are quite good, especially on the latest versions.""The most valuable features of this solution are the Excel automation and support for SharePoint.""The solution is very manageable.""BotFarm has been working perfectly fine with our business model. Its scalability is the most valuable feature. We can easily scale out bots on a need basis. Portability is another valuable feature. We work with different payment systems like Visa and MasterCard and have bots for them. Because of BotFarm, we are able to reuse these bots.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""The most valuable features are PDF extraction and emailing.""The most valuable features are the portals for extracting data from PDF files, appending data to SAP, automating the SAP, downloading reports, and mapping and creating the reports accordingly to your requirements.""The solution seems to offer high stability. We haven't seen any bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze."

More BotFarm Pros →

"Provides good automation features.""It is easy to deploy. To do the automation in NICE, you really need to use your programming expertise. There are no inbuilt features in it, and you have to create all the required features, which can be very interesting for a programmer.""It is a kind of desktop automation. Its licensing model is a little bit different. It tends to be individual automation specific to a role. It excels at that."

Cons
"The OCR command needs to improve. This feature is used to convert the extracted data from an image file. While converting this file I was facing a lot of issues with the data because it was getting lost and some of the data which was extracted was mismatched. The data loss was rated as a nine and the data accuracy was a massive decrease and was up to 80%.""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.""The user experience could be made a little better with this solution. I find it difficult to find qualified people to be able to use the solution.""The CL command poses an issue during the process of data conversion, accuracy, data loss and the assessment of certain data as false.""The discovery suite that they just acquired could be included.""The pricing of this product could be better.""We do have some troubles with the internal software commands, but we have been troubleshooting this bug to fix it.""When somebody is just learning this product it can be difficult for them to understand, so improvements to the user interface would be helpful."

More BotFarm Cons →

"The solution is not as intuitive as it could be and integrating took a lot of time.""We haven't found it to be as powerful as some of the other platforms. From a true RPA perspective, it is pretty far behind some of the other solutions. It has emerged as a more desktop automation kind of tool, but it lacks a lot of enterprise features. It is not really a true RPA because of its licensing, which is kind of user-initiated. It would be nice it can be deployed at a more enterprise licensing model versus a user-based model. It didn't have autonomous automation so far, and they have just released this feature. They have kind of hodgepodged a bunch of products together to get there, but it is not as seamless as other solutions.""Its connectivity with other applications should be improved. In the version that I was using, it would just stop interacting with the other application. Its graphical interface should also be improved. It should have a user-friendly interface. Sometimes, people find it very difficult to understand. One of the obstacles that I faced while programming was that if I needed any kind of help, there wasn't much content on the internet. It can be very difficult to find a solution for a particular issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We pay approximately $15,000 USD per year."
  • "Licenses are paid on a yearly basis and the cost is quite high."
  • "It is too expensive and not worth the price."
  • "Automation Anywhere is more reasonable than Blue Prism and UiPath in terms of cost."
  • "Its price is quite high as compared to other solutions, but it has a lot of features and good stability. They should reduce its price."
  • "The licensing is on a monthly basis."
  • "The license of this solution is on an annual basis. The price is fair. However, what we did initially was a POC, but now we are looking at moving from a POC to expanding it out further. I would appreciate some kind of discount."
  • "We are on an annual license for the solution and is priced well."

    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.”

    NICE Robotic Automation is allowing organizations to reinvent customer service in the back office and the contact center. Automation offers an immediate reduction of administrative costs for a quick return on your investment. With robots able to perform tasks four to five times faster than a human, NICE Robotic Automation enables quicker turnaround times for customer requests and improved service-level agreements (SLAs). Routine processes are completed flawlessly every time, reducing the need to allocate time for making corrections. NICE Robotic Automation is highly scalable, so a center's processing power can increase when demand does.
