Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The product provides end-to-end solutions for different business problems.""The most valuable features are workflow and process automation.""The most valuable feature of Kofax RPA is the simplicity of automating tasks.""It is very simple and easy to learn compared to any other RPA tools such as UiPath, Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism.""The most valuable feature is the robotic process.""Kofax RPA's best feature is its high success percentage in picking up information from documents, especially where the DPI is really low.""Kofax handles UIs via the browser well. If it's not possible, they have other features like modeling screen scrapes, etc."

More Kofax RPA Pros →

"The solution is relatively easy to use and cost-effective.""The solution has saved us hours of work.""From my personal experience of using Microsoft Power Automate, I think that the automatic document processing feature is helpful for many organizations in streamlining administrative processes. It is a very good feature. It has helped many enterprises to process documents without spending much time on them.""You can automate almost everything in your organization by simply dragging and dropping and selecting a few options, whether it's an Excel spreadsheet or other on-premise data.""The best feature of the tool is that it is generic, so it allows one to do as he wishes.""The most valuable features of Microsoft Power Automate are the ease of use and the templates that are provided. I no longer need to make the document from scratch. I can search for what template I want and then it only requires me to modify it a bit for my needs. Additionally, it's helped improve my productivity and efficiency, and at the same time, it's quicker.""It is a stable solution.""Triggering and scheduling were pretty good. There was no real commitment with WinAutomation because the licensing was very fair and you could trigger bots very easily."

More Microsoft Power Automate Pros →

"RPA technology is constantly changing, and sometimes Kofax lags behind.""Kofax RPA could improve web-based automation and there should be a choice of what browser we can use, such as Google Chrome, instead of an inbuilt browser from Kofax RPA. Additionally, Kofax RPA is missing an orchestrator that other solutions have, such as UiPath.""The scalability has room for improvement.""Automation with the latest websites is not effective. The support of newer websites developed using new technologies would improve this solution.""The product has some constraints and performance issues.""Kofax RPA's UI could be more user-friendly.""The interface could be better from a usability standpoint."

More Kofax RPA Cons →

"It lacks a lot of functionality that other tools have. There should be queue management, and there should also be the capability to deal with a little bit more complex automation. If it had queue support and if it was capable of doing more complex automation, it would be a much better tool.""The product should improve its RPA capabilities.""Some automation features on some programs did not work smoothly.""I rate the technical support from Microsoft Power Automate a four out of five.""It would be great if it was able to integrate more with various other platforms. It would make development easier.""These products have some limitations, such as the need to build some custom controls in PCF or use the JSON format.""There are frequent version updates and that impacts different algorithms so we have to adjust our code.""Their connector to Oracle or premium data sets that aren't Microsoft would often fail for me. The information given back about why it failed wasn't always robust to understand how to fix it and why it happened."

We've got some discount because we're a big corporate client of Microsoft 365 and other solutions, but the standard price of the package that we use is $40. For the product, you don't have to pay anything extra. If you're using a partner, you need to pay for their coding, advice, and services, which is a separate cost. The majority of the features are available for free for anyone who is on Microsoft 365."
  • "Good price-quality relationship. Its features for its price were the best fit for our company."
  • "This is the cheapest option among competitors. You can choose to have the RPA with attendance at $40/month with add-on's totaling about $190. There are standalone options that require someone to run the process and there are fully automated options that are integrated within the cloud."
  • "The licensing model is flexible in that you can pay per automation or per user. My client receives a discount because of the large number of users and pays approximately $15 for each one."

    Microsoft Power Automate is an intelligent, cloud-based solution that allows users to boost their productivity by creating automated workflows between multiple services and applications.

    These workflows are used to synchronize files, receive notifications, and retrieve data. The system creates workflows by recording user actions, like mouse clicks, data entry, and keyboard use, which are processed into intelligent, secure workflows.

    Users can easily add intelligence to their workflow automation with AI Builder. AI Builder has a set of AI tools which range from language comprehension to image recognition, as well as hundreds of pre-built connectors and thousands of templates.

    Power Automate utilizes triggers and events to create chain reactions within each workflow so that all manual and repetitive tasks are carried out without any human intervention. The automation of time-consuming manual tasks frees teams up to focus on other strategic opportunities for their organization.

    The workflow creation tool allows users to easily set up custom integrations and processes between Office 365 and third-party applications by using pre-built connectors. These integrations are typically services like data loss prevention and access management services.

    Microsoft Power Automate seamlessly integrates and automates tasks with hundreds of out-of-the-box data sources. Some of the more popular third-party applications include:

    • SharePoint
    • Microsoft BI
    • Microsoft Office
    • Asana
    • Mailchimp
    • Twitter
    • Trello
    • Google Docs
    • Salesforce
    • OneDrive

    Microsoft Power Automate was designed to allow non-technical business users to create their own automated processes with AI builder’s easy-to-use drag-and-drop-based interface, using four different types of automation flows:

    • Cloud flows: Automations that are triggered by a specific event in the cloud or on-premises, such as an email or a social media post related to your organization.
    • Scheduled flows: As soon as a designated time is reached, a scheduled process is triggered and continues to run until it completes all of its assigned scheduled tasks.
    • Desktop flows: This allows users to automate their desktop by recording their screen. The visual flow designer automates mouse and keyboard clicks. Desktop flows can be used for extracting text from files, retrieving files from folders, and more.
    • Business process flows: This automation can be designed in order for employees with different security roles to have a smooth work experience that best suits the tasks they need to perform.

    A few of the major benefits of Microsoft Power Automate include:

    • Automated processes improve workforce productivity and reduce human error.
    • Streamlined repetitive and time-consuming tasks.
    • Constant access to the solution via the mobile app to create, run, and monitor automated workflows from anywhere at any time.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Microsoft Power Automate stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Several major ones are its user-friendly interface, its automation capabilities, and its integration options.

    Thiago R., the head of Digital transformation at Zaact, writes, "Workflow management is what clients select the most. It is very intuitive and pretty much drag-and-drop, so we can create escalation, decision flows, and if-else conditions pretty much by dragging and dropping boxes. Even someone who is not technical can develop a workflow for the business."
