Likelihood to Recommend

Catalytic

Catalytic is best suited for process automation. It is great with unstructured data and the machine learning capability is so accessible. The AI aspect is super intuitive and helps make good business decisions. The ability to drop pushbots into process and then do a seamless handshake to a human and back again is not something I have seen anywhere else.

Pega RPA

It is not suited for centralized bot deployments. If several bots need to be deployed, then it will be difficult to manage and control. Programmers have to create custom code components to collect log files, health files, etc. On the other hand, it is best suited for an application which takes a random time to load, works in Windows MDI, or in parallel programming.

Pega RPA

  • Pega RPA has translators for specific platforms which makes it easy to integrate and automate. For example, .Net translators helps to interrogate applications based on .Net platform.
  • "Wait for Create" feature is not available in any other RPA tool, which is handy during RPA workflows.
  • Pega RPA has special features for Pega application which makes it a preferred RPA tool for them.

Cons

Catalytic

  • Funky UI - doesn't take much to get used to
  • Handlebar
  • Hard to grasp the full extent of the power of the application

Pega RPA

  • Pega RPA doesn't have centralized control room which is available in other RPA tools. It should be there for the centralized control of bots.
  • Pega RPA should have better help documents and tutorials. Help.Openspan.com doesn't contain enough examples to understand the product. This will ease the lives of developers.
  • It should have better recording and data scrapping features which are present in other RPA tools like UIPath, AA, and Blueprism.

Using Catalytic is dead simple, click and drag. Start simple and iterate. Once you start using the tool, you soon want to add more in and then the more you add in the higher the ROI. People will start to line up to want to use it, and realise the benefits

We have been so lucky with Catalytic, the team have been super responsive and more than willing to go that extra mile to make sure we have everything that we need. Even with the time zone challenges, they are the kind of team that will always make sure they are available and will follow up until we have the answer and more.

Alternatives Considered

Catalytic

We started on the process automation journey a few years back and people kept coming back to ask, was there an alternative that would allow us to connect all the disparate systems in my organisation. We looked at RPA, that wasn't the answer, some of the larger players could do what we were looking for, but it came at a price that precluded usage. Then we should Catalytic was right in that sweet spot, - we call it bang for buck, functionality that was accessible from a price point of view but delivered in terms of realising our goals

Pega RPA

Pega RPA and UIPath both are tools for Robotic process automation. In our projects we were dealing with Pega applications which are easily coupled with Pega RPA. It is better in a multi-threading environment as separate features are provided in Pega RPA. In UIPath, one needs to know VB.NET in order to write custom code which is not a popular programming language. And in Pega RPA, it is a C# and .Net application which is famous among programmers.

Return on Investment

Catalytic

  • Made us look more closely at why we do what we do
  • Shortened the cycle time on a lot of previously manual processes
  • Better experience for our customer base

Pega RPA

  • Once bots are deployed they carry out work 24*7*365, which resulted in saving several work hours.
  • The support team has to monitor regularly. If there is no change in target applications or bots are running fine. This is a bit of negative impact from RPA side.
  • Overall, the organizations are benefited from bots as they save operation cost and work hours.
