What is most valuable?

The feature of Blue Prism that I find most valuable is the ability to build my own custom objects or use custom logic for doing the particular task. If there is a task… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I use Blue Prism for my customers. I really don't use Blue Prism in my own company or for my own automation. I do automation for my clients. If you look at the banking… more»

What needs improvement?

Since Blue Prism gives me a lot of flexibility, I don't want the vendor to make any changes out of the box. I believe that there could be more community support, or there… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We really don't bear the costs. The cost is borne by the customer. It runs into about $100,000 per year per customer for Blue Prism. We need to add the hardware costs to… more»

What needs improvement?

I feel like it's pretty good as it is. One thing I would change is when you're nesting certain workflows, it can get a little complicated as you start getting deeper. For example, if you have multiple blocks that need to live inside each… more»

What other advice do I have?

Automation technology is non-existent in our company currently, but definitely something that should be leveraged for. I think there's a lot of value in being able to free up people from doing small repetitive tasks and just be more… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at a couple of alternatives. Automation Anywhere was one of them. I haven't looked at the other ones, since we chose UiPath pretty early on, having heard about them previously. We also considered some others like Pega and a few… more»
