Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 best part of Kofax is that they have a whole concept. It's one product, but also has extra elements that can be integrated.""The drag and drop functionality is quite good.""This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems.""It is stable and scalable.""The OCR was quite stable and flexible.""The pricing of the solution is quite good.""Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools.""The flexibility to use already-developed components is really good. You can use it for Excel-related operations and other things."

Cons
"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."

"I'd like to see a recording function and a more simple interface.""The solution needs to be scalable.""It needs a free training portal for anybody on the internet to use so that they can get an idea of what the possibilities are.""There is really nothing special about the capabilities of this product.""Exception handling needs to be improved.""The product needs more AI capabilities.""I would like to see them further enhance the OCR, specifically in the multi-language support.""The process discovery could be a bit better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Blue Prism Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The normal price for an on-premises license is €50,000. That's the price for one robot license. You can have more than one robot license but only one can be run at any one time. I believe the cost of adding a second robot is around €14,000.""Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate.""I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis.""Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."
