Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is very stable. We don't have issues with bugs or glitches.""Productivity increased far more than thirty percent.""The dashboards are quite good, especially on the latest versions.""The main features of the solution are the IQ Bot and web-based automation.""The most important feature of BotFarm is web automation.""The system is stable and very little maintenance is required, assuming the bots process is perfectly designed.""The most valuable features are PDF extraction and emailing.""The solution is very manageable."

More BotFarm Pros →

"Attended and unattended automation, which support web and email automation, are the most valuable features for us.""We used the AI Fabric functionality in one of our projects. We had to categorize users' reviews based on the sentiment scores. Everything was already available, including the model. So, we just have to click on all those things from UiPath now.""UiPath has definitely reduced the percentage of human errors that we have in our processes. In our system, all of the bots follow our best practices so there is a very small chance of error.""At my previous company, in the best scenario, we removed almost 200 hours per month of client usage, making it automated with almost zero errors. So, about 32 employees were freed up from their work per month, and now there are only two. This has enabled employees to focus on higher-value work that involves human-base interaction. This saved the client money and provided a recruitment benefit.""We have various automations in various applications like desktop, mainframe-based, and SAP-based applications. I work with almost all of the applications. I see good progress no matter what we do. The most valuable feature is that UiPath works with all these solutions.""Human error was greatly reduced and the solution saves a significant amount of time, these are the two main reasons we started using UiPath.""The biggest benefit that we have from UiPath comes from using the API.""The best feature, for sure, is the ease of development. It's very easy to create an automation from scratch... UiPath has a more friendly development environment compared to other vendors of RPA."

Cons
"The deployment could be simplified.""Its UI could be made better. It should also be more flexible. Currently, it is more rigid, and a little more flexibility is required. Their technical support should also be better. We are not very happy with their technical support. Its price is also quite high as of now. They should improve its price. Its setup should also be made easier. It is quite complex to set it up. Even though we were able to set it up a little fast because we had done something similar earlier, but it has a very complex setup. It is extremely resource-hungry. If they can make it a little light on resources, that would also be useful.""BotFarm newer version has been difficult to install, we have been in contact with the support on this matter.""It would be ideal if the solution offered more language options, such as Arabic.""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.""We do have some troubles with the internal software commands, but we have been troubleshooting this bug to fix it.""We have connectivity and integration with pretty much every single tech stack across the table that we have in the world, and there are a few areas that they don't do that well yet. I'd be looking for some improvement there, in terms of their integration with certain products.""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."

More BotFarm Cons →

"The only concern is it's a bit tough to understand the first time, and you have to invest in the technical improvement of your team in general.""UiPath should take several steps forward to be prepared for this competition and create differentiation with capabilities that Microsoft does not have. The innovation within UiPath is going to be very, very crucial. However, the most important thing is clear the differentiation in the messaging.""There are minor bugs. Every major software has bugs. That said, all are solvable, all are resolvable, and it's not a very bad thing.""The on-prem orchestrator was an issue for us.""The licensing could be more flexible.""The API integrations need improvement. They should build a better framework for the ability to integrate with other external APIs.""When we have to capture some text from our invoices and from our notes and do some manual work, sometimes the tool doesn't extract the data in a precise way.""Recently we were trying to add AI Fabric into our production Orchestrator, but we faced a lot of challenges. We had to involve the UiPath support team in the upgrading process. We were quick movers to upgrade to AI Fabric, as not many companies have done that. There were some bugs that we discovered during our upgrade journey, and that's how UiPath came to know about those bugs. It was a little bit tricky, but UiPath's team is always present and helps along the journey."

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."
  • More BotFarm Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is okay, but I recommend to build a business case before going live. Ensure that you really use the license and building the robot makes sense. Try to think of multiple use cases, because one license can be used for several robots."
  • "It is important for whatever we implement that it's cost effective in a sense that the robots will replace some human time. If human time costs less than the robot, then that's not a good deal."
  • "The pricing is average; it is not too high nor too low."
  • "The pricing is good compared to other software. Based on the features that UiPath is providing, and the community support, the price is reasonable."
  • "The licensing system is something that needs to be improved."
  • "The licensing is close to optimum; however, there is room for improvement in both the cost and flexibility of the licenses."
  • "If you want to start doing RPA, I think you should definitely go with UiPath because it has the Community edition. You can just install it and check whether or not your process works fine with UiPath. It will be an attended bot, but you can form an idea whether your bot can easily be automated."
  • "It is cost-effective and has an affordable price."

    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.”
