We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution has increased the speed, accuracy, and happiness of staff involved in the activities for which RPA has been deployed."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to do surface automation, allowing interaction with legacy systems where terminal emulation is still in use."
"The ease of use is really good because a lot of business people, who have some idea about logic and who can think in logic, can configure things, because there is no coding."
"It is not just for coders, as you can have a diagrammatic representation of the process."
"The most valuable feature is that people with zero coding knowledge can use Blue Prism very well."
"We started with a very small team and small projects. As the project started getting success with Blue Prism we have a large number of teams now just for automating all the business procedures. Larger time was saved after automating the processes."
"The web-based designer is very user-friendly and easy to use."
"It's quite easy to use and easy to understand the process studio."
"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"
"We would like to see intelligent process automation that integrates RPA and machine learning."
"I would like to see the vendor improve the efficiency of Blue Prism interaction with applications."
"Blue Prism has been a little bit slow when it comes to the commitments on their roadmap. They had some delays last year, so I hope they make it up this year... For example, they were launching a Decipher tool. It was delayed by more than a year. It has still not launched."
"The assisted automation functionality needs improvement."
"If this solution had a framework for exception handling then it would be very helpful."
"They improve more in OCR, to read text more correctly, currently can say OCR in blue prism only works for less cases and is only effective 50%. so mostly OCR's of Blue prism is very less used and other API's or tools are integrated with Blue prism for OCR techniques."
"I would like to see machine learning functionality integrated with the automation."
"I don't like that it is so limited, anything that you do feels limited in your capabilities."
"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 pricing is really good for an enterprise-level solution. It's quite scalable and it's quite comparable with the market."
"Our licensing fees are approximately $5,000 USD per year."
"The licensing fees are low compared to other tools."
"Blue Prism is less expensive than some of the other RPA solutions."
"We have a three-year contract that is paid on a yearly basis."
"With Blue Prism, there are no additional fees"
"Blue Prism has a really simple licensing model, where the licenses are not confusing and there are no hidden costs the way there are in UiPath."
"Blue Prism is quite costly."
"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."
