Cons

"I would like to have a user account so that the staff can see all of their requests, including the status and other details for each one, on the dashboard.""There is an RPA feature gap between this solution and other more mature products.""If the product had onscreen help, it would be easier to learn and use.""The thing which needs the most improvement is really the documentation. It should have better details of the processes.""Compared to other RPA solutions, there is a little bit of a feature gap.""The licensing model is difficult to understand and is something that should be improved.""I would like to have chatbot assistance available, where you can open it and receive help on the spot.""All the services on the Microsoft platform are great. If we want to try something like with SharePoint or Azure or the 365 CRM, then we can't with the everyday community edition of the Microsoft Power Automate. It would be a good thing if there was some sort of trial period. Let's say you have 14 days. That way, can log into the loading screen with Power Automate, and get to utilize services like SharePoint, OneDrive, 365 CRM or etc. to see if they like them. It would be a good way for Microsoft to cross-sell or up-sell."

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."

It comes with our Microsoft Office subscription.""I don't deal with the financial side. I know that we pay for a per-user license. It is probably less than $20 a user, but I am not sure about the exact figures.""I am not aware of the recent pricing model, but during the time that I was using this solution is was reasonable."
