Cons
"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.""The licensing schemes could be more competitive. They need to be much more flexible in their pricing.""The OCR tool, the optical character recognition tool, could be more efficient.""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 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.""Normally we need to monitor the solution using an AWS console and the control room. We would like to have a standardized dashboard to see all the information in one place.""We do have some troubles with the internal software commands, but we have been troubleshooting this bug to fix it.""The discovery suite that they just acquired could be included."

More BotFarm Cons →

"The only problem I face when I use the tool is that it doesn't contain much documentation or it doesn't have many video tutorials on its features.""There are some conditions in the mail trigger, but you can only use them as an "AND" condition, not as an "OR" condition. This is an improvement that could be useful. For example, some people put "invoice" in the subject and others put "invoice" in the body. If I want to make a trigger for everybody whose sending invoices, I have to make two jobs for this now."

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."

    Top Answer:Licensing is something that management handles. I don't have any visibility on the costs or the licensing arrangements.
    Top Answer:The version that I'm using, the Excel command, is a bit limited. The OCR tool, the optical character recognition tool, could be more efficient. It should be monitored thoroughly due to the fact that… more »

    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

    BotFarm Features

    • No code/low code solutions: Users can easily create and deploy bots to perform undesirable, mundane tasks, freeing IT staff to work on more productive, complicated tasks.

    • IQ Bots: Easily extrapolate data from any document, such as resumes, invoices, and legal documents, to ensure data is correctly correlated and grouped together and that overall data integrity is never compromised.

    • 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.”

    VisualCron combines many features into one product. Through scheduling you can set your Jobs to run on a specific time or event. The Tasks in each Job automate scripts and eliminate human errors. Through various Tasks you can integrate different systems through file transfer and conversion.
