Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We found the unassisted bots very useful because they can program a variety of different processes. This is a valuable feature of Blue Prism, especially when compared to other tools on the market.""The most valuable feature is the work queue. This helps the user to create a workflow, and it is a very powerful tool for generating management reports.""If there is a task that Blue Prism cannot do out of the box, Blue Prism provides me the facility of designing one and integrating it into the application. This process is called Visual Basic Objects.""The way you design the flow and configure the activities for the bot is very useful if you are working with any of the BPM or local platforms.""It offers assessments by way of a robotics or automation readiness assessment tool, which was quite helpful.""The most valuable feature is the design studio and its ease of use.""The most valuable improvement in utilizing process automation is the cost savings, but we have also had cases where the customer experience is enhanced.""This solution has increased the speed, accuracy, and happiness of staff involved in the activities for which RPA has been deployed."

"The out-of-the-box finance modules within the Redwood Finance framework help to speed up the process, versus designing and writing generic BOT code."

Cons
"Blue Prism needs to provide better customer support because there are some bugs in the product that make implementation tricky. Blue Prism is designed more for operational than transactional processes. If Blue Prism incorporated a lot of IQ bots and cognitive processing, then it might be of better value at a lower cost. The issue of the cost of the tool needs to be addressed. To become a Blue Prism partner, it's costly. I think that this is one of the negative aspects of using Blue Prism.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for attended robots.""I believe that there could be more community support, or there could be more support for developers like us from Blue Prism. Blue Prism provides a lot of documentation, but there is a lack of support.""I would like to see wider integration with other products.""This solution is lacking attended automation, which is the worst thing about this solution.""A feature that I would like to see in the next release is the ability to easily call on the robots to fulfill part of the process, and be run by the users in the business, where the robot can simply be activated rather than running mass processes from a control room.""We would like to see some desktop automation, although we have been told that the product is not going to be taken in that direction.""We would like to see intelligent process automation that integrates RPA and machine learning."

"Mapping the process steps to an existing R2R process quickly would be a definite step forward."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We really don't bear the costs. The cost is borne by the customer. It runs into about $100,000 per year per customer for Blue Prism. We normally budget around $30,000 for the first year for the hardware, setup, and people cost.""Other than your infrastructure, in terms of servers that you have to set up, I don't think that there are any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""Compared to other tools on the market, it is one of the most expensive.""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."
