Likelihood to Recommend

Automation Anywhere

[Automation Anywhere] is
independent of any business size, but mostly it will benefit large setups. So I
will recommend you its usage. It will enhance your productivity and let you
improve the management of tasks. It is one of the most effective RPA in the
market.

WinAutomation

WinAutomation is great at web data extraction jobs where you need to go through steps on a web site to get to the data you are after. You can use WinAutomation to click buttons, move the mouse, send specific key combinations. WinAutomation is also good for ftp monitoring and automating jobs that use many programs.

Pros

Automation Anywhere

  • Exception handling is pretty decent. WE don't have to worry about process being stuck as it moves to the next iteration on its own.
  • Automation is easier to achieve as it doesn't require high coding skills or designing a specific framework.
  • It can achieve PDF editing and automation, which in our case of policy documents has been valuable.

Cons

Automation Anywhere

  • Automation Anywhere doesn't come with easy installation, We need to install Java, IDEs and Databases in an orderly fashion which we are not able to do.
  • Automation Anywhere has no workflow design which is not making us to understand the process.
  • Automation Anywhere has no fit to size object cloning.

  • Licensing can randomly lose the license key and need to be reapplied.
  • Secure FTP commands need to be revamped as some FTP sites will not connect via SFTP.

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.

For most tasks WinAutomation is great and easy to use. You just set up tasks on a step by step basis and you can even tell the program what to do when there is an error (such as continue with job). Sometimes with complicated web extraction jobs it would be good to be able to easily extract data from the web page source.

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

Other than Automaton Anywhere I have also used UiPath. What I like about Automation Anywhere is the object cloning and the way you can move the mouse and either go to a particular point or go to an element. That's very easy and intuitive in Automation Anywhere. It gets the job done in terms of getting the data out of the pages. Although I have other tools, I still have this habit of going through the clicks. If you're going through the clicks, Automation Anywhere is the best.

WinAutomation

I did not have to review other applications before deciding to purchase WinAutomation. I downloaded the trial and after a few days of using the trial, I knew this was the correct application for what I needed to automate.
