We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the ability to capture data from documents with different formats.""While using ABBYY FlexiCapture we did not use the generic models that they do have for invoice and purchase orders. For one of the use-cases, the document was exactly the purchase order, but we are not using that generic model. We are creating the model from Scratch. However, if I was to compare ABBYY FlexiCapture with other IA tools, the machine learning and how the extraction is done is far better than competitors. This allows a lot less effort for the development.""We have found the solution to be stable so far.""We are able to extract details from a PDF and put them into a CSV. It is able to extract the details that we are looking for. We have the Machine Learning feature to extract the data with respect to the position of the field.""It saves us a lot of manual work.""The machine learning capability is pretty good.""The whole idea of designing your own templates is pretty much the bread and butter of the product, but that's really the best part because you can design flexible templates.""The handwriting recognition is very good, as it can recognize handwriting done with pen and paper with at least 70% accuracy."

"This product is the best in terms of price and capabilities.""This solution improved the reporting in our organization. The financial department was doing a lot of copy pasting from different sources to create financial reports. Through ProcessRobot, we were able to automate all those copy pasting and produce all those financial reports overnight.""The most valuable features of this solution are the cost and ease of use, it's very simple.""The development time for ProcessRobot is very good compared to other solutions.""The interface is user-friendly.""It is very easy to learn and use. It is quite useful for any sort of back-office work. Any kind of work with low and medium complexity is very doable in ProcessRobot. For higher complexity, some refinement is required, but it is doable.""I have found the scheduling and email notifications features to very good compared to other RPA tools I have used."

Cons
"Machine learning needs to be improved.""Even though the training works, it's not as good as it is made out to be.""Could be simplified, particularly the UI.""In IRISXtract, we can have master data, and we can set the master data. There are more options for taking any data and comparing it with master data. For a project, they have a dump from SAP for validation. This feature is there in ABBYY, but it is not extensive like IRISXtract. ABBYY is capturing the data, but there are not a lot of options to validate the captured data. It would be helpful if there are more options for validating the captured data in ABBYY FlexiCapture.""In the future, I would like to see integration with Google Sheets.""The generic models have a lot of areas to improve. In our experience, we are not able to get good results in the generic models. From a developer's point of view, there could be more improvement if the source code is available on a broader scope""Occasionally, we found the Machine Learning feature to be not working as per our expectations. Sometimes, it also failed to extract details from a PDF. It would be great if training batches work with 100% accuracy. I don't see any other major concerns with ABBYY FlexiCapture.""Not a ten because sometimes some documents have handwritten data. If this improved, I would rate it a ten out of ten."

More ABBYY FlexiCapture Cons →

"It should be more stable, and their technical support should be faster. It should also have more integration with tools from other vendors, such as SAP and Oracle, and technology partners, such as Salesforce.""This solution should be more resilient, with robots more capable of recovering after an error.""In an upcoming release, the exception handling mechanism could improve. The issue that we are facing is whenever there is a failure in any of the middle execution and if you wanted to navigate it to the end of the last line of execution, we do not have this feature available. If we had this feature it would make it even more stable.""Better support is needed for building custom components on top of ProcessRobot.""Some automation features on some programs did not work smoothly.""They need to come up with a little more on AI and precision discovery path to be able to record the processes.""We are looking to see more features implemented there are already available in UiPath or Automation Anywhere."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For us, the price is reasonable."
  • "The price of this ABBYY FlexiCapture is a bit expensive and the price is based on how many documents have been captured. For example, one or two million captures."
  • "Its price is a little bit high and can be lower. Its licensing is very expensive. I don't remember exactly, but for each page, it is about four or seven cents, which is too expensive."
  • "Most of our customers have purchased an annual license and if you have multiple developers from other companies, you can assign the license on a monthly basis to developers."
  • "It is expensive as compared to UiPath. We pay for the licensing and the page count."
  • "It is more on the reasonable side as compared to the competition that I am aware of. I'm not an expert on pricing schemes for all sorts of things, but when we offer them a solution, we like to say we're agnostic. So, we offer more than one solution when possible. Amongst the ones that we've offered, ABBYY usually is the more reasonable solution on a big scale. On a small scale, they're all pretty similar. As far as I understand, you pay a license for a number of pages, and that's pretty much it. It has just the rate per page, and it decreases as you scale."
  • "Its price should be a little lower. It is a lot higher than the competition, and if they just break the gap a little, then more people might jump onto their product. Their price is definitely a deterrent in the few cases that I remember. They have monthly and yearly options, and if you want, they also have per project and per page options. They do charge extra for different types of installation. They have the standalone, which is pretty straightforward and a lot cheaper than the server installation. Server installation gives you a lot more, and it gives you control over the environment."

  • "There is flexibility in pricing."
  • "This is a cost-effective product and now that it has been acquired by Microsoft, we don't expect the cost to increase with the next release."
  • "The pricing of this solution is very good and for me, it's the best option there is."
  • "Licensing is on an annual basis."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable."
  • "Good price-quality relationship. Its features for its price were the best fit for our company."
