Robotic Process Automation Pricing Plans for CFOs

Jason Dzamba by Jason Dzamba - May 19, 2022

CFOs overseeing robotic process automation projects have been tightening budgets. When evaluating ROI, they weigh the costs to automate processes, but they’re not only focusing on the numbers.  

Toptal pointed out in a recent article that the role of the CFO has changed. Ten years ago, the focus was on reporting, records, and compliance. Now, operational strategy, influenced by lean finances, is prompting CFOs to adopt a multi-vendor approach for RPA projects.  

This article covers the enterprise RPA+ tools available on OpenBots and the costs of each plan. Our pricing plans will help CFOs understand the investment they can expect to develop a solid RPA strategy. It’s simple and straightforward, as it should be.

Robotic Process Automation Enterprise Tools  

Two important questions for CFOs to answer are (1) what processes you want to automate and (2) what tools you will need to get the job done with minimum cost and maximum benefit. 

The OpenBots Enterprise RPA+ tools available will help you scale your digital transformation efforts without paying unnecessary bot licensing fees which can result in millions of annual savings.

How much is it going to cost to develop? How many developer licenses will you need? How many virtual machines will you need hosted? Will your bots be on-prem or in the cloud?  

These are essential questions you should consider when deciding which of the following RPA tools are right for your enterprise.

Scaling Robotic Process Automation  

When you start automating a process, it’s easy to get a quick win with low-hanging fruit—the ROI is high. Going past initial pilot automations is when the cost and the benefits of robotic process automation break down.  

Working with the OpenBots Platform will help you leave more money on the table to reinvest in processes that will digitally transform your business.
