We performed a comparison between Microsoft Power Automate and Robocorp based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution integrates more easily and with more tools than Automation Anywhere."
"The most valuable features of Microsoft Power Automate are the connectors, such as loops, which make things easier."
"It works best to build cloud flows."
"You can create a flow, and it can be shared across different environments."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"Different trigger events were most valuable. You could schedule a process on a recurring basis, at a certain time of day or week, or when something happens, which is huge."
"AI Builder is a good add-on."
"Third-party integrations with third-party applications are quite easy."
"The ability to create separate organizations on this platform makes it easier to bill each of the clients separately."
"The solution is based on Python which makes it very valuable."
"Robocorp is based on Python, so you can use Python scripts and create libraries for your use cases. Building libraries and custom scripts for a particular client and general use cases is easy. We can reuse those scripts for other clients, so we start seeing benefits quickly."
"The process execution and all features are very good."
"It offers high scalability and enables automation in ways that haven't been possible before."
"I have worked with UiPath and Automation Anywhere previously. Robocorp offers an improved development style and support as well as flexibility of its tools. You can easily develop custom libraries in Robocorp."
"I can use it as a library by importing Python scripts, allowing me to access its many features while working with coding."
"As a developer, I found it easy to integrate third-party applications with Robocorp. I have previous experience with Selenium, and I found the Robocorp framework to be accessible because it uses Python and Selenium keywords."
"Microsoft Power Automate could improve by offering recurring execution on the desktop."
"I rate the technical support from Microsoft Power Automate a four out of five."
"The debugging tools require improvement as well as the monitoring which goes along with it."
"For countries in our region, it's not very well known."
"When you try to create a flow or work on the flow in Microsoft Power Automate you cannot undo changes. There are no options to edit or, undo an action. This feature would be useful. The editing option within the flow can be enhanced."
"I would like to see better data integration with different sources."
"There are frequent version updates and that impacts different algorithms so we have to adjust our code."
"The technical support has room for improvement."
"They should fully develop Robocorp Studio because it would attract a lot of people to the Robocorp platform."
"I preferred the user interface in the older versions. When troubleshooting, it's sometimes hard to find details about where things went wrong. You need to search a little harder. It takes more clicks to get to where you want to go. It can be somewhat confusing. When you run a process that fails, it takes you somewhere you may not expect."
"We would also like an integrated PDF reader and better integration with custom solutions. The built-in Excel customization is limited, but we can still accomplish what we want using Python. We must rely on Python to customize processes in Robocorp. I don't know about the latest IDE from Robocorp, but the old one doesn't have a lot of activities."
"The deployment process is complex and not straightforward, especially for legacy modernization."
"An additional feature I'm looking for in Robocorp is SAP automation."
"Robocorp is still in development, so most of the keywords are a bit confusing. I have to alter lots of automation steps between processing and development. However, Selenium is due for an update soon, and Robcorp is addressing some of the limitations caused by the previous Selenium version."
"There are certain libraries in Python, such as those dealing with PDF automation and word files, that require the presence of certain external dependencies in the environment to be successfully used."
"The solution could be more stable."
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:
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:
A few of the major benefits of Microsoft Power Automate include:
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."
Most robotic process automation initiatives fail to get off the ground because the current drag-and-drop offerings are expensive and frustrating for developers. Robocorp is a Python-based open source stack for automating applications and processes. Automate any task you can imagine with hundreds of keywords and libraries with performance, scalability, and security built-in. Our cloud robots can run on any platform from any machine, and scale horizontally to ensure mission-critical processes complete as efficiently as possible. Getting started is free, and our resource-based pricing ensures your costs are always straightforward - no matter how much your implementation grows.
