Cons
"The OCR for Hebrew text needs to be improved.""The documentation is not that great.""The interface could be more user-friendly and easier to navigate.""They do not encrypt passwords, so this is an issue with HIPAA compliance.""The technical support could be better. We suffer from language barriers, as we are in Argentina.""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.""The solution has a very weak knowledge base.""Some companies have asked for voice integration. This is likely part of the roadmap."

"There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions.""One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition.""WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems.""The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""The OCR functionality needs to be improved."
