Likelihood to Recommend
Automation Anywhere
Automation Anywhere is well suited for automating repetitive or complex tasks that can be performed on a timeline such as data processing, data extraction, and file transfers. Automation Anywhere also has capabilities for integration with legacy applications and APIs to automate more complex data flows. Automation Anywhere is also ideal for automating document processing, form filling and other web activities since it has both image recognition and image-based automation capabilities.

On the other hand, Automation Anywhere is less appropriate for tasks requiring high levels of system intelligence such as machine learning or natural language processing as these require different types of technology. Additionally, if a task requires manual elements such as validations or reviews then Automation Anywhere may not be the most suitable solution either. It can be possible to set up automated validations but that might not always result in an ideal solution due to its limitations.

Hyland Software
Hyland RPA is well suited for highly repetitive manual processes. It works really well with more modern web applications. It is more difficult to work with older client-server applications where fields, buttons, and links may be harder to identify, but with time and experience using the tools, most problems can be resolved.

Pros
Automation Anywhere
  • Now I easily generate the invoices and quotation generation is an easy task now. Previously it was very time consuming as we have to drag the data from the excel sheets.
  • I will praise its integration with other software that has facilitated us to make amendments in the data across those platforms.
  • Its interface is very easy and user friendly.

Our teams are now completely dependent on this solution and we've restructured our teams around the new processes we now have in place. It would be extremely difficult to be able to move forward without this product. We are more likely to buy more RPA bots than not renew at this point in time

Usability
Automation Anywhere
On more complex use cases, Automation Anywhere requires technical background like knowledge on network protocols and database language on task creation, and even people with technical background might have some trouble in the beginning because of the product particularities on how variable manipulation works, or how to get the object cloning (a more resilient screen manipulation command) to work as intended. The scheduling of tasks on the Control Room and the autologin feature isn't intuitive as they should, so much of this works requires documentation analysis to get it done on the first time.

Both RPA Analyst and RPA Designer are easy to learn and with experience almost any manual process can be automated. Once, the infrastructure is understood any organization should be able easily scale up it's automation efforts across multiple departments.

Support Rating
Automation Anywhere
Automation Anywhere is a great tool for a low cost, fairly easily scalable, and quickly learned. The company is growing by leaps and bounds and continually pushing the automation boundaries. The problem with fast expansion is that sometimes you can grow more quickly than you can appropriately support your products. While Automation Anywhere has an excellent support structure in place, every company and situation is different, and they often struggle with why problems arise in the system and how to fix them.

Alternatives Considered
Automation Anywhere
Automation anywhere scores well with respect to other solutions when we look at bot implementation, bot management, and basic automation. From a security perspective as well, AA fares well as compared to other solutions. UIpath is better suited when we operate using VPN systems and integrating with homegrown solutions.

Hyland Software
Hyland RPA [(formerly AM Ensemble)] is much easier to configure and is fully integrated with Hyland. We probably would have used Selenium to accomplish what we were looking for but that required development resources and we were going to have to build in the integrations with Hyland and OnBase manually. This was useable out of the box and saved on development time

  • Customer satisfaction has increased. They are pleased with faster development and execution.
  • Cost internally for our company is heavy and the client doesn't bear the full cost for it.
  • We didn't need to train our staff a lot for this. Just a week of overview was enough to get started.
