Scalable, stable, and very user friendly
Pros and Cons
  • "The interface is very user-friendly and easy to navigate."
  • "It would be ideal if they had the exact same features as the CA Workload Automation DE series. It would be helpful to have calendaring options."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our clients.

What is most valuable?

The installation of the product is very straightforward.

The interface is very user-friendly and easy to navigate.

The solution is very stable.

The product can scale easily.

We've found the pricing to be reasonable.

What needs improvement?

The product is very new to us still. Therefore, it's difficult to gauge if there's anything missing. We're still learning about the product as we go.

For how long have I used the solution?

We started using this solution last year. It hasn't been too long.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is very reasonable. It's reliable. We haven't found that there are bugs or glitches. We haven't dealt with it crashing or freezing. It's been good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very easy to scale. If a company needs to scale the solution out, it can do so.

So far, the projects we are working on are for a small company. We haven't tried it for an enterprise-level company just yet. That may come in the future.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before starting with this solution, we worked with CA.

How was the initial setup?

We've found the initial setup to be quite straightforward. It's not complex at all. It's very easy and this is one of the solution's selling points.

The deployment is quite quick. Within the hour I had everything pretty much up and running.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is quite reasonable. We found the cost to be surprisingly good.

What other advice do I have?

We are a reseller. We are a software company.

So far, we've had a pretty good experience using the solution. We need a bit more time with it, however, to get more comfortable with everything.

Overall, I would rate it at an eight out of ten, as so far the experience we've had has been positive.

Reliable, scalable, with multiple workflows
Pros and Cons
  • "I like the dashboard and the various workflows."
  • "It can't handle negative written codes."

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant. Stonebranch was used for retail businesses.

What is most valuable?

I like the dashboard and the various workflows. 

What needs improvement?

It can't handle negative written codes. 

If a program was providing a negative value, it wouldn't be able to handle it well.

There some issues with the conversions initially and with the initial simulations. These are areas that could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the most recent version of Stonebranch Universal Automation Center for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's reasonably stable and there are no complaints.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a very scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't dealt with technical support directly, but I have worked with people in the company who have worked with Stonebranc technical support.

There are no complaints, but they have to work on some of the criteria they use. Some of the things suggested didn't work well and didn't get converted properly. I have had to redo it because of that.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was handled by another department. We transitioned and built our virtuals after the environment was set up.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not aware of the cost.

What other advice do I have?

The project using Stonebranch has finished. I don't have access to the Stonebranch environment now. We last used it six to twelve months ago.

It was not complex for me, but you have to follow the documentation. Spend some time to learn about it, then it's no big deal.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
