Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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"

"It lets us automate almost anything, even with the legacy tools. It is very easy for us now to automate with legacy tools, which used to be difficult earlier. We work with a lot of other automation tools from Micro Focus, such as Operation Orchestration, but these tools can only connect to the API. So, there was a gap when we wanted to automate older and legacy tools that didn't have any API to connect to. We can now also automate without any changes in the customer environment. We don't need to change anything in the way that the customer environment works."

Cons
"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"

"It currently supports only on-premises deployments. They can include support for cloud deployments. It should provide us the ability to choose a robot for executing a workflow. We want to control which robot executes a certain workflow. Right now, it automatically chooses the robot that is going to execute our workflow. It should also provide the ability to get filters on the outputs of the steps. We have each workflow as a step, and each step has some output. We would like to have the functionality to execute some script or some logic on these outputs to format the tests directly on the variables."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"The pricing model is very straightforward. You can have a one-year or three-year subscription. You pay for each robot that you want to use simultaneously. If you want, you can install 50 robots and get 50 licenses. If you want to use only one robot at a time, you just need one license. For each license, you pay around 10% or 15% to support. You pay for the license, and you pay a small percentage of the cost of the license for support. This is their licensing model, which is very easy to understand."
