Cons
"Stability could be better.""We're based in Thailand, but the documentation is not in Thai, which makes it difficult for us. If they could translate all of their documentation into our language, we'd be very grateful.""IBM should provide specific solutions for specific problems, like templates for invoicing processes, or general templates for creating efficient processes.""The time it takes for approvals, and risk analysis could be faster.""This RPA should be under the umbrella of BPM. This is what the future should be."

"The OCR functionality needs to be improved.""One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition.""The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""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.""There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems.""The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses."
