Pros
"Blue Prism is able to scale up at an enterprise-level. It's what I used when I was working for a big bank in Belgium.""The most valuable feature is the ability to write custom code.""The product itself is quite mature.""The user performance is the most valuable feature.""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.""The reusability of the solution is excellent. It's a superior feature - far superior to any other tool on the market.""The most valuable feature is security.""The solution is very complete. It's a good solution, for the kind of features that they offer."

Cons
"I wouldn't call Blue Prism user-friendly. It's one of its downfalls. They would benefit from having drag and drop functionality, for example. It would make them a strong competitor in the space. There needs to be less reliance on coding for customization, similar to Microsoft's Power Automate.""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.""It takes a while to get up and running.""The cost is a bit high. Other tools are much cheaper.""Having more AI functionality would be an improvement.""Selecting the right business processes that are stable enough to automate can be challenging.""Lacking advance features like CIO and optical character recognition""The pricing was a bit high, from what I understand. That might have played a role in the decision to migrate to another solution."

"It would be ideal if the solution offered more language options, such as Arabic.""The deployment could be simplified.""The OCR command needs to improve. This feature is used to convert the extracted data from an image file. While converting this file I was facing a lot of issues with the data because it was getting lost and some of the data which was extracted was mismatched. The data loss was rated as a nine and the data accuracy was a massive decrease and was up to 80%.""Its UI could be made better. It should also be more flexible. Currently, it is more rigid, and a little more flexibility is required. Their technical support should also be better. We are not very happy with their technical support. Its price is also quite high as of now. They should improve its price. Its setup should also be made easier. It is quite complex to set it up. Even though we were able to set it up a little fast because we had done something similar earlier, but it has a very complex setup. It is extremely resource-hungry. If they can make it a little light on resources, that would also be useful.""We do have some troubles with the internal software commands, but we have been troubleshooting this bug to fix it.""The user experience could be made a little better with this solution. I find it difficult to find qualified people to be able to use the solution.""Although I like the OCR technology, it could still be further improved.""When somebody is just learning this product it can be difficult for them to understand, so improvements to the user interface would be helpful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."

  • "We pay approximately $15,000 USD per year."
  • "Licenses are paid on a yearly basis and the cost is quite high."

    Top Answer: 
    The dashboards are quite good, especially on the latest versions.
    Top Answer: 
    Licensing is something that management handles. I don't have any visibility on the costs or the licensing arrangements.
    Top Answer: 
    The version that I'm using, the Excel command, is a bit limited. The OCR tool, the optical character recognition tool, could be more efficient. It should be monitored thoroughly due to the fact that… more »
