We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One feature I like is that it makes the matrix easy for an unstructured document.""Kofax TotalAgility is a single package. They provide you with OCR capabilities, BPM capabilities, and case manager features.""Great with recognition providing a high level of confidence.""Now it has an OCR, optical character recognition, engine where it can extract data from the document.""It's not so complex to design what you need to.""The most valuable features of this solution are automation, ease of billing processes with the process net, and low to no code development.""Kofax TotalAgility is a great design tool for reading handwritten invoices.""Data extraction and auto-classification are great features."

"I have a lot of experience in this kind of industry, and Pega is one of the best solutions in terms of performance, capabilities, and the way we develop.""Pega is a local platform that has evolved from a BPM perspective. This allows teams using this solution to address complexities without having deep knowledge in a specific development area.""There is a feature to accelerate the development so that business analysts can directly create their user stories and assign the task to the developers.""The solution is operating well overall.""It's a good tool for workflow automation.""It is a stable product.""In general, we use web services to integrate this solution with our other tools. It is the main approach we use with this solution and it integrates with all tools that we need. If you want to integrate with other solutions such ThreatFire or similar, it is possible as well.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward."

Cons
"Table line item extraction is not possible through Quick Capture.""There needs to be more accessible certification and better pricing.""Kofax should improve its handwritten extractions.""The Transformation Designer of KTA can be made better.""Kofax needs to improve the low-code or citizen developers.""TotalAgility needs to improve communication with ECMs or other file storage systems because TotalAgility does not have file storage. A good improvement would be to create file storage or integrate with other file storage tools that are currently available.""Sometimes there isn't enough accuracy when it comes to extracts.""They provide sufficient but not excellent technical support. Perhaps there is a point where they could use some improvement."

"Pega is claiming they're into low code but as per Gartner Magic Quadrant, Pega is not there now.""There is a scarcity of resources who have worked with this solution before.""If it could also be integrated with robotics, it could help with a lot of things, even if we don't have APIs, we could still talk to other applications. If it could invoke a bot, for example.""To learn Pega, you need to be a partner. If someone just wants to learn Pega for the sake of learning, they won't be able to do so as they don't give access to that.""The workflow automation can be slow, so there is room for improvement there.""UI needs improvement.""They need to support the solution better, at this time the company does not have enough support.""One of the areas of this solution that could be improved would be to advance the low code features of the application itself. We would also like to use the same platform to build any application, even if it is not necessarily defined as a functionality needed by a BPM."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Kofax TotalAgility’s cutting-edge intelligent process automation platform stands out among the many similar products offered by its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the general wealth of features that are already built into the product when it is initially deployed and its optical character recognition (OCR) engine. Kofax TotalAgility provides users with the ability to create, deploy, and manage workflows without requiring them to overly rely on other solutions. Kofax TotalAgility’s suite makes it possible for its users to keep their reliance on any other products to a minimum. Kofax TotalAgility’s OCR engine makes it easy for users to find data that might be buried deep within their systems. It saves users a great deal of time, streamlines their data search process, and makes it easy for them to make use of their data.

    An enterprise service management consultant and Kofax developer at a technological services company writes, “There are also already a lot of built-in features, meaning you don't have to install and integrate many third-party plugins. It has a lot of its own stuff.”

    He also writes, “Now it has an OCR, optical character recognition, engine where it can extract data from the document. You can deploy the CSV file and put it within Kofax, and then it'll search from the CSV file as well. For example, let's say you have a long list of names. It's integrated with scanners so it's easy to find the data you need.

    Pega BPM helps you simplify and automate your operations so that you can reduce costs and improve business agility. Pega's unique Build For Change technology delivers repeatable solutions that can be efficiently reused and tailored to meet the requirements of diverse customers, product lines, channels, and geographies.
