RPA has created an unmissable ‘big bang’ in the world of technology, whereas no business can now stay away from using it. But, this bang-bang has created multiple loopholes across the industry, with newborn players launching girthy packages with varied services and pricing. The biggest roadblock that has restricted the RPA adoption over the years is ‘confusing prices.’ The heavy package-compiled RPA pricing model has confined the companies in their automation journey.

The highlights of this issue are:

  • No standard unit of measurement, each vendor works on their pricing mechanism
  • It is increasingly challenging to compare services due to diverse pricing configurations
  • There is little to zero flexibility in the RPA pricing models
  • Software remains as a small portion of the total calculated cost of ownership
  • RPA offerings listed by the vendor in their packages are divergent; mapping them to the business need is the real struggle

RPA vendors are unusually boastful about the awesome number of bots and services they offer in their lump-sum packages. But, this begs an immensely critical question – is the quantity a justified measure of RPA success?

It seems to be a mere bragging factor with a significant chunk of the underutilized services, and maybe a few major utilities remain missing. To evaluate and justify the RPA investment, the primary goal is to be outcome-driven, backed by the below questions:

  • Is the RPA package aligned to the business’s purpose, serving all the requirements precisely?
  • Are the services utilized optimally, or are their wastages?
  • Is there a scope to maximize ROI by driving more revenue or increasing efficiency?
  • Can the current costs be decreased as per usage?

So, at the end of the story – it doesn’t matter how many soldiers you have in your army but how strong and effective they are to get you victory!

Price comparison for RPA tools is confusing as the models might function on concurrent runtime (often referred to as a bot), process flows, or per transaction. Hence, predicting demand for utilization becomes cumbersome, further elongating the buying cycle. This problem is bulked up with prohibitive license costs, mounting infrastructure costs, and restrictive lock-in periods.
