Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best feature of the tool is that it is generic, so it allows one to do as he wishes.""The tool is very good at implementing automation within processes. It's saved us from doing a lot of manual processes.""The RPA robotic process automation is a good feature. We can make a flow within a flow. We just made a UI flow. The flow is to run every day so far it's been quite helpful.""The most valuable feature is that it easily integrates with other Microsoft products, so it has multiple connectors. You can create solutions that connect to Teams, Outlook, SharePoint, and OneDrive.""It's easy to learn.""Power Automate has allowed us to simplify the business process and improve operational efficiency.""The integrations that are built into Power Automate for those different Microsoft functions are good.""I like the scalability option and the simplicity, the way we can really use the interface to easily scale up."

"The tech support is highly available and there is plenty of online training available.""The most valuable aspect for myself was access to the .net framework. If I couldn't figure something out using the objects that they had provided, I could bring in the .net objects and do so using similar logic that I would in a .net or C sharp coding language. Having that familiarity was helpful.""It is really flexible in what it can do.""They are leaders in the same industry.""The solution's ability to create adapters quickly is its most valuable feature.""Using the tool actually ends up teaching you about making workflows more efficient.""The most valuable features are the loops to lookup tables to read the data.""The workflow system is very intuitive."

Cons
"Their OCR capabilities are not as evolved as the other tools.""Execution of workflows could be improved.""It can have customizations like enterprise solutions. In the approval section, there should be an option to reassign approval to some other employee. It would be good if we are able to create custom tables by linking to an item, and there is an integration with the HTML table through HTTP calls or Swagger connectors.""I was working on it for around three days and then took a break of about two days. When I went back to it, all of the Excel, and all the Excel functions, just disappeared. Completely vanished. When I looked up the help, it said that sometimes that happens when you're not connected to the internet.""It would be great if you could integrate outside of Microsoft environments.""The solution lacks maturity.""Any task that is automated needs to be very simple. This tool does not seem to handle complicated tasks very well.""It's not as user-friendly as a solution such as UiPath, which is really easy to use."

"I have faced many scenarios in the business workflow, where a few applications run on the Citrix environment. That could be a critical part of the process without which business won't be able to accept the automation solution. Because of one small bottleneck, you will lose a very good candidate for process automation.""The handwritten structured and semi-structured data recognition accuracy is much lower and is an area that definitely needs to improve.""Pega has a no-code low-code environment. We do everything based on established rules. You kind-of have to learn how all their rules work and how it works for robotics before you can use the solution effectively.""The development experience needs to be improved.""The OCR capabilities of the solution could be improved.""You cannot use a two-dimensional array to read the data.""I would like to see an enhanced auditing feature included.""The ease-of-use could be improved."
