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 features are the recorder because it's user-friendly and the integration with other tools Excel."
"This solution has great document recognition capabilities."
"The dashboard is the solution's most valuable feature. When clients want to look at the data it's very easy for them to do so. The dashboard for the IT manager is very useful if there are issues and to create and follow processes."
"In terms of stability, it's quite good. It's an internal IP product."
"In our opinion this group are the leaders in providing RPA solutions."
"We can see that its competitive ability is quite good."
"The most valuable feature is that it is easy to use."
"WorkFusion's SAP integrations are really good."
"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 should integrate with more ERP solutions like SAP. It doesn't currently have that ability."
"A better graphical user interface that allows business users to perform automation would make this solution number one in the market."
"The problem with the solution is that it is agnostic, so it's not made for banks. Sometimes we are challenged because of this. We have to make everything from scratch to make it work for our clients."
"On a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate them a 6. That's not low - that 60%. But as I said, it needs to be upgraded and modified."
"We would like to see further improvement in the area of running headless."
"I would also like for it to be NLP-based."
"One of the issues that we are facing here in China, is that we cannot access the material for training because it is on YouTube. In China, we do not have access to YouTube."
"It is complex for enterprise implementation. The solution needs a needs minimum, of 20-22 servers. It's no small task. This is not a straightforward setup. It's a large undertaking and there are many moving parts."
"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."
"Find it online."
"They have a very expensive license compared to any other automation tool. For instance, at $50,000 - $60,000, you can bring in an Automation Anywhere solution. For this solution, you need at least $250,000 to get something going."
"It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest."
"I can't speak to pricing. It's a contract signed by upper management."
"We are on an annual contract to use the solution."
