We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"'ve only had a few cases where I've had to request support in the past 12 years of use, but the support response time and resolution were was extremely quick."
"VisualCron is a very powerful program to automate different steps in your business processes. We use it to automate replacing files and inform departments about the replacement."
"It helped us reduce manual steps."
"The ability to clone jobs to shorten the time it takes to implement a process has been invaluable, but its flexibility also gives us the ability to create a job that can handle a multifaceted process with a complex workflow."
"It has improved our organization with more automation within the business departments and less administration and development in the IT department. Usually, as the IT department, we are the bottleneck for many requirements within the business. With this tool, the business departments are able to perform many task themselves."
"The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel."
"The pricing of the solution is competitive, which is good for the Romanian market."
"The technical support is good."
"The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations."
"This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems."
"The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity."
"I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable."
"The error timeout and info could be better. When making web request calls, it will time out sometimes and we won't get any useful info out of the error response."
"VisualCron seems to operate like an efficient machine when it comes to improvements and enhancements and new features. I always appreciate the quick response I get when bringing up an issue or coming up with suggestions. I've mentioned before that it would be great to see a move away from SQLCE and XML configuration files."
"I would like for VisualCron to expand audit log to show who changed job variables that are initialized per job run."
"There are some conditions in the mail trigger, but you can only use them as an "AND" condition, not as an "OR" condition. This is an improvement that could be useful. For example, some people put "invoice" in the subject and others put "invoice" in the body. If I want to make a trigger for everybody whose sending invoices, I have to make two jobs for this now."
"Our suggestion to make it better and more manageable in terms of GDPR: Implement it in a very partnership way."
"One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition."
"The OCR functionality needs to be improved."
"WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard."
"The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects."
"There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions."
"It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems."
"The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses."
"The solution could offer more specific training. There should be more examples of what the functions can do and more instructions and explanations to the process."
"We are fine with a rather cheap setup. Licensing with VisualCron is fair. You have a simple one-year licence in different sizes. There isn't a licensing jungle with hundreds of options and opt-ins."
"ROI is 95 percent."
"The pricing is extremely fair, and because of that I recommend purchasing multiple instances to split out the processing load across multiple application servers."
"ROI is one month."
"This is a cost-effective RPA solution."
"This solution is reasonably priced and offers a free trial period."
