We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The studio design is fine compared to other similar products. There is nothing extraordinary about it, but at the same time, there are not any negatives."
"The most valuable feature of Blue Prism's Virtual Workforce is that it is quite stable."
"The product itself is quite mature."
"I would say that the stability of Blue Prism is superior to any of the competing products because of the maintainability of the features and the openness of the tool."
"Once it does the monitor, it collects the respective data and creates an output that is required for reconfiguration."
"The user performance is the most valuable feature."
"This solution comes with a lot of good features."
"Ability to see the blueprint of the design executed alongside the actual process."
"The ease of building automation and the development environment"
"In the future, they should have a similar version for the cloud and on-premises, and the installation should be flawless within few minutes."
"Several things need improvement, like ease-of-use, adding tended robots, adding process recording, and updating the look and feel so it seems modern."
"The pricing of the solution could be improved. It's a bit expensive right now. They should work to make it more competitive."
"Blue Prism is slightly difficult for the non-technical user."
"The main issue is screen scraping with Blue Prism gives us a big challenge because we need to define which technologies are web-based have been built instead of by itself discovering the technology that it is built on."
"The cost is a bit high. Other tools are much cheaper."
"Selecting the right business processes that are stable enough to automate can be challenging."
"There's a need to deal with unstructured input with RPA."
"Lacking advance features like CIO and optical character recognition"
"The licensing for this solution should have a more competitive pricing model. The price is in the top five of similar products."
"Pricing can be negotiated in situations where there will be heavy usage."
"The licensing structure is complex and the minimum contract length is three years."
"We pay about $15,000 per quarter in licensing costs. We don't have to pay for any other extra costs. There isn't, for example, an extra cost for technical support. We just pay the licensing."
"There are many RPA solutions available from different vendors and the pricing for Blue Prism is competitive."
"Annual licensing costs were somewhere between $5,000 - $10,000 for the development tool. For the control tower, I think fees were about $50,000 annually."
