Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The workflow system is very intuitive.""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 tech support is highly available and there is plenty of online training available.""It is really flexible in what it can do.""The most valuable features are the loops to lookup tables to read the data.""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.""They are leaders in the same industry."

"It helped us reduce manual steps.""'ve only had a few cases where I've had to request support in the past 12 years of use, but the support response time and resolution were was extremely quick.""It has improved our organization with more automation within the business departments and less administration and development in the IT department. Usually, as the IT department, we are the bottleneck for many requirements within the business. With this tool, the business departments are able to perform many task themselves.""VisualCron is a very powerful program to automate different steps in your business processes. We use it to automate replacing files and inform departments about the replacement.""The ability to clone jobs to shorten the time it takes to implement a process has been invaluable, but its flexibility also gives us the ability to create a job that can handle a multifaceted process with a complex workflow."

Cons
"You cannot use a two-dimensional array to read the data.""The handwritten structured and semi-structured data recognition accuracy is much lower and is an area that definitely needs to improve.""The development experience needs to be improved.""The ease-of-use could be improved.""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 OCR capabilities of the solution could be improved.""I would like to see an enhanced auditing feature included.""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."

"VisualCron seems to operate like an efficient machine when it comes to improvements and enhancements and new features. I always appreciate the quick response I get when bringing up an issue or coming up with suggestions. I've mentioned before that it would be great to see a move away from SQLCE and XML configuration files.""There are some conditions in the mail trigger, but you can only use them as an "AND" condition, not as an "OR" condition. This is an improvement that could be useful. For example, some people put "invoice" in the subject and others put "invoice" in the body. If I want to make a trigger for everybody whose sending invoices, I have to make two jobs for this now.""The error timeout and info could be better. When making web request calls, it will time out sometimes and we won't get any useful info out of the error response.""I would like for VisualCron to expand audit log to show who changed job variables that are initialized per job run.""Our suggestion to make it better and more manageable in terms of GDPR: Implement it in a very partnership way."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "ROI is 95 percent."
  • "We are fine with a rather cheap setup. Licensing with VisualCron is fair. You have a simple one-year licence in different sizes. There isn't a licensing jungle with hundreds of options and opt-ins."
  • "The pricing is extremely fair, and because of that I recommend purchasing multiple instances to split out the processing load across multiple application servers."
  • "ROI is one month."
