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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
