What do you like best?

I have recently moved to A2019 Cloud version, previously I have worked on other versions of Automation Anywhere. Automation Anywhere is one of the most convenient and useful RPA Tool as compared to the others in the market. Automation Anywhere offers you a wide range of commands to automate nearly every application ( Web Based or Windows Application). Email automation, Excel automation, Object Cloning, PDF Integration, App integration, Web services are some of the listed commands. Automation Anywhere ensures the client data security by not letting the sensitive Login credentials out in the open. There are dedicated Credential Vault feature in the Application which holds all the Login credentials without letting it visible even to the developers and there are features such as PGP which helps to encrypt and decrypt the files. The best part of Automation Anywhere is its interactive Control Room Dashboard, which gives the insight of almost everything out there. one can see the status of all the deployed task in the production along with the audit log details. The introduction of the Workload balance feature in 11.X version has made the job of load balancing much easier. Overall my experience with Automation anywhere was amazing and I would recommend this to every one in RPA to try it out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Moving on to the A2019 Cloud version, there are lots of changes in this new version of Automation Anywhere as compared to its previous versions like 11.X. The look and feel got entirely changed along with many of the new commands and the existing commands also got modified. Not much to dislike just the variable declaration and mapping in the old versions were far more comfortable rather than in the new version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Automation Anywhere is really one of the best tool to work with.

Do try out the A2019 version if you haven't done that yet, its the best cloud based RPA Application. There are may great features to play with such as AARI Web, IBM Watson Authentication, Interactive forms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are many business problems that I have solved using Automation Anywhere, one such business problem includes reading the Email body with fixed subject line and extracting required data from it, then processing the extracted data with the use of a third party web application and generating reports and sending and email to the Client along with the status and attaching the generated reports.

In the evolving field of Intelligent automation, Automation Anywhere always bring a new aspect and a new way to look at RPA tools which are in the crawling stage as of now and needs much more stability when it comes to getting the product releases out into the market.

What do you like best?

A2019 which is next level of RPA tool. One can develop the process across all platforms & can connect from any where with out any infrastructural setup. Giving tool as a service makes the organization less worry about the infrastructural maintainence and focus more on the process developments and deployments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

v11 vs A2019 which is complete changeover of the architecture where organizations think before migrating. People might opt for other competitive tools which won't let this changeover happen example UIPath or Blueprism.

Development wise, developers has to adapt this change while developing a process in web environment.

Automation Anywhere has to take care of uniform level of architectural approach while releasing new versions which won't bother the organizations for migration Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Every RPA developer has to be familiar with popular tools in market being A2019 as one of it. One can learn easily and develop the process. one who is familiar with v11 also has to focus on A2019 as it has different GUI. Any organization who is freshly looking for RPA implementation, I suggest A2019 as one of the tool to approach.

In current world, most of the organization work on linux, In order to implement RPA, they don't need to worry for the windows/remote servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Day to Day mundane works within the organization are accomplished with this tool. As service based organization, to provide next level of RPA product to client we include AI which can adopt according to the time giving less maintainence in long run. We accept challenges and provides the RPA services within time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is an wonderful automation tool which automates everything from cut, copy, paste to complex task which you do on your system. Basically it's a robot which do all your work for you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A proper tool guidance is missing. We easily accessible all the navigation but it is a bit difficult to remember which navigation we need to chose for what type of activity. Which makes it a bit complex to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best tool in robotic process automation for end to end automation activities. Also it is the best tool available in the automation field which can be very user friendly. I like the user interface a lot which is so simple and easily accessible. The tool will automate your needs in a very short span which you will not find in other competitive tools. I would say I like the tool a lot and would recommend it to every user who like to automate their work with minimum efforts. Surely you won't be disappointed if you would suggest this tool for your clients. They will surely amuse with results provided by this tool which will eventually reflect in the revenue of the organisation. The wide variety of automate option makes it to lead in the market. Also they have are providing various certifications by contracting with most of the top companies to make sure there should be enough resource available to support their product. It's a good market approach which will make them to stand in the market for a long time period. So the companies which planning to buy this tool won't suffer due to lac of technical support. Also which makes the professional people to become skilled with future driven tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Most notably, automation is very easy to build and handle bots. Web automation and Excel automation in particular are made very straightforward. From basic bots to complicated bots, we can build any bot in no time. You don't have to be an expert in programming to build automation processes that allow users with limited experience to grow their robots, maybe the method I use the most and consider the speed at which you can create a bot through their commands and gui. Metabot reliability and consistency are the best thing about this RPA and make it the best device in the industry, it has choices to work with. PDF files are very convenient and most of the drawings shown are in this format. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a cost-effective programme, designed for big corporations who can pay for permits, it doesn't mean that it's evil, but I believe it reduces the need for the automation of their enterprises for small businesses. They have a control room in the development and programming that I had to use to perform it correctly. In my view, the documentation is much less helpful. I would really appreciate some AA or documentation support if I got lost on something when designing the bot. I like to use Python to integrate more in this language of programming. It's also impossible to handle both glitches and debugging computer code isn't the easiest way to eliminate risks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Anyone who needs to carry out their business operations would strongly encourage automation. In a short amount of time, we can also create complex bots. Managing bots after release is also very simple. In reality, AA's options are limitless, one of the best RPAs available today, its high price may restrict smaller businesses, but the programming and running of the app, to be frank, is a very easy job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With our cloud platform automation process, it is completely effective to use. I have thoroughly applied it in this area. I still use it for the integration of sales processes. Data collection is performed everyday with python and java on web platforms that need it. I found that by using automation anywhere we save a lot of time and it's also economical. With automation everywhere you could create bots in no time. I feel like creating bots and automating business processes anywhere using automation is really simple.

What do you like best?

It is easy to use, easy to understand, and easy to automate the processes with Drag Drop functionality.

I mostly like the functionality of Metabot which makes AA more scalar, robust, reusable, and can be used to automate a wide variety of applications (SAP, web application, windows application, outlook, excel). It supports running Jave script and vbs.

AA training courses have Interactive sessions with Hands-on features in between the topics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has fewer features for excel and email automation commands and sometimes object cloning doesn't work properly. Debugging feature is not much enhanced. It has less variable type and so we face issues with dates and numbers format. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is more script-based so logical analysis should be good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have to automate the store reconciliation process for one of the client. In this process, I have to reconcile the cash deposit by different company stores with bank deposits. Using AA, It took very little time and human error was negligible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

In Automation anywhere, I mostly fond of IQ bot where bot can learn by doing alotted work , later it comes to meta bot, where we can write scripts to automate sequence of complex, scalable process steps in a single application window.

It has built in machine learning capabilities as well as natural language processing, which will help to read pdf's and image processing to read data from images also.

Any novice user, who spends some time can learn easily, such a well organized tool. Built in tools for API's and FTP's.

In A2019, Excel activities got updates and it has google sheets integration toolkits also very amazing and easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Installing automation anywhere server and client is a bit complex and difficult job to do. Reading hand written documents and scanned pdfs are difficult even to a IQbot, the resultant data is not accurate.

when compare to other RPA tools, debugging mode is poorly functional. in blue prism its very nice and you have full control over the code in a debugging mode.

while running in a debugging mode, variables don't store values of current debug run, to check the result always need to use message box to check.

In A2019, bot agent is continuously disconnected and takes time to run a bot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend Automation anywhere to utilize every organization's need, where there is a repetitive task, no human decision making required and office front end tasks like sending bulk emails, where there is no need of technical background required. we can easily automate any use case in any department. Its license is also low cost to purchase. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using automation anywhere, we can reduces working time of humans on a tedious repetitive tasks. Now officials are utilizing their precious time on core processes and improving knowledge to implementing new things in work place.

By using natural language processing and machine learning in IQBot, we can automate HR and finance use cases like reading pdfs, images and by using AA we solve complex problems like sending bulk emails to customers and other retailers to deliver news, offers and promotions.
