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"

More Blue Prism Cloud Cons »

"Extending the UiPath studio in terms of UI and functionality would improve this solution.""Better alignment of workflows for development is needed.""Optical character recognition for hand written documents could be improved.""Templates had to be created for different formats.""Additional help with ROM and approach would be an improvement.""On the development side, more documentation on how to structure the setup for different environments would be helpful.""We had some issues with instability for which we were never able to determine the root cause.""One of the things we're struggling with it how to project how many robots we need to do these processes, so better documentation or assistance in this regard would be useful."

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."

More Blue Prism Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution has a very competitive and flexible pricing scheme that depends on the process complexity.""With respect to the cost, you're going to recognize the savings immediately for the cost of the tool.""It's the same as what you would see on any of their list prices. There is also a corporate discount because of scale. Overall, we think it was a competitive price offering. They were the cheapest out of the three, so that's why we went with them.""The licensing costs for the unattended bots are a little too expensive.""I can estimate our licensing costs are approximately $100,000 USD per year.""We got purchased the basic minimum package and it was around $35,000 USD, annually.""Because we have so many agents, that's why we went unattended. Attended was very expensive for us because it's a per person license. Where we can take entire workflows, do the triggering and scheduling, etc. We never have to have any human interaction with unattended.""We have a cost model for operating expense savings. It is usually about $100,000 to $125,000 and takes us six weeks to develop and implement. That's development, testing, and implementation. We do code reviews on everything. That does not include all the documentation, assessment, etc."
