Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The ability to script information from websites is most valuable. It also seems to be fairly robust and reasonably easy to manage on a server-based deployment. We have a number of robots operating on the central server.""The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things.""The pricing of the solution is quite good.""The OCR was quite stable and flexible.""This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems.""Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools.""The drag and drop functionality is quite good.""It is stable and scalable."

"The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel.""I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable.""The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations.""This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features.""The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems.""The technical support is good.""The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity."

Cons
"There is really nothing special about the capabilities of this product.""The product needs more AI capabilities.""I would like to see them further enhance the OCR, specifically in the multi-language support.""We are on version 10.6, and the current version seems to be 11. Kofax is cycling the capabilities of the product very quickly. One of the difficulties has been to actually keep up with the capabilities as they've evolved. On the one hand, it is good that the product is getting better, but on the other hand, it is difficult to implement the best way with a product that is evolving constantly.""It needs a free training portal for anybody on the internet to use so that they can get an idea of what the possibilities are.""Its documentation is not widely available on the web. They should work on the availability of its documentation. In Automation Anywhere, there is a feature called Discovery Bot that automatically records the process steps and suggests a possible bot. I am not sure if such a feature is available in Kofax. If it is not available, it will be very good to have this feature. ""The process discovery could be a bit better.""The solution needs to be scalable."

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

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
  • "I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis."
  • "Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."
