Likelihood to Recommend

AntWorks ANTstein

ANTstein needs no code or minimal programming. This makes the assigning tasks to bots much easier without wasting time. ANTstein in very useful in performing rule-based tasks. For some tasks and special cases, human assistance is still needed to make decisions.

Anything where automation would be helpful, I'd recommend. If you're doing a task over and over again, Automate can likely work and do it for you. It helps to keep things running exactly the same so that when failures occur, they can easily be traced to their source.

Pros

AntWorks ANTstein

  • Ai enabled RPA: unique in the market. Most of the RPA tools do not provide Ai in RPA. A.I. in RPA means making an intelligent and self-monitoring robot army.
  • It creates numerous ants when the task is overloaded. Most of the time in Big Data Analytics, unstructured and semi-structured data comes in a pipeline. ANTstein knows very well how to channelize the data.
  • Automated Data analytics and code free automation. This supports all formats like PDF, digital data, and spreadsheets.

  • Very detailed task builder. Easy to read step by step a task's operation even if you don't have much programming knowledge.
  • Scheduling for automation jobs is very flexible. Allows us to create all kinds of job schedules as needed.
  • Organization of jobs, tasks, conditions is done well. Allows us to easily manage our items.

Cons

AntWorks ANTstein

  • Some of the tasks still needs human intervention. The level of complexity of autonomous tasks handling without human intervention is needed to be improved.

  • AutoMate's Windows interface can be quite buggy at times. We are using the latest and final build of AutoMate 10. It took many iterations to get this most stable build, but there are still many little issues that happen when building tasks. Copying and pasting too much causes GUI errors and can crash. Things don't indent properly, success/failure arrow lines in the Job window don't flow perfectly straight, etc. There is a newer version AutoMate 11, but it's so buggy we can't even use it properly.
  • Memory management is terrible on Aut 10 and 11. Just working in the program for a little bit building tasks has memory leaks that don't resolve until you close out of the program. You'll be using several GB of ram in no time.
  • Dashboard reporting could be better. We'd like a better way to track how jobs are running, when failures occur, etc. You can do that now, but the interface is cumbersome.

AntWorks ANTstein

AntWorks ANTstein 9.0
Based on 1 answer
ANTstein is designed to automate the entire business process rather than merely a single
discrete task. Leveraging fractal networks, rather than neural network technology, ANTstein is able to use relatively small data sets to train the engine thus enabling faster training, testing, deployment and execution of business processes.

At an older job we used to use SSIS as kind of an automation tool as well as it could also be used to connect to FTP sources, read files, etc. AutoMate is simply centrally designed to be true automation software. It is much more robust, can work with a variety of software (including SSIS itself) and is much quicker to integrate and troubleshoot.

Return on Investment

AntWorks ANTstein

  • Positive: Robotics Process Automation with AI and self-learning eases repeated tasks. Even when data structure changes, ANTstein handles by itself
  • Negative: It shoes special characters when input fonts are not available in the system. Sometimes it becomes difficult to handle local language fonts.
  • Positive: Detect text and non-text content in screen scraping, and web scraping with replication accuracy using OCR and Data Scraping.

  • It's been a net positive as AutoMate requires less eyes on specific tasks so that people can focus attention elsewhere and do more analysis.
  • Less manual work also decreases the chances of mistakes and/or missed jobs. Since Automate can schedule everything, send email notifications, etc., there is less time wasted.
