"I use the basic features that are very useful."
"Blue Prism is very good at doing background processing."
"The web-based designer is very user-friendly and easy to use."
"It is good for transactions that are very straightforward. It works very nicely with the structured data. It is user-friendly. It is easy to implement and easy to understand."
"The integration has improved a lot in terms of SAP, and other screens."
"The support is good."
"The entire tool is valuable because it is an enterprise tool. It is on par with other tools like Automation Anywhere or UiPath with the OCR/ICR facilities, analytics, and the entire package for enterprise-level security. It has the highest level of security as compared to any other tool."
"This is a scalable product."
"The fact that we have the opportunity to access all of our services without any requirements from our side suits us very well."
"The speed is much better because we're doing it on the cloud. With other solutions there were network problems, but in UiPath I have found that network connectivity is much stronger when transferring data from the back end to the front end. It is much faster."
"Previously, nobody could automate the process. The design and implementation allowed clients to handle their own data, for example, for transfers and items like that. We were able to digitize entirely from end to end. Now, the customer doesn't have to come to the bank and they don't need a pen and paper. They just have to log on and fill out the details of their request."
"UiPath support is amazing."
"The functionality where you can quickly convert your code from Studio X to Studio is really nice."
"The most valuable feature is the fluidity of the products. When I want to use RPA, I can use RPA. When I want to do process mining, I can do process mining. Those are the two top that I typically use it for."
"I have trained people to use this product and it is so easy to use that even on the first day, people are able to start working with it."
"Scraping data from the application using OCR and other text validation features is amazing in UiPath."
"For developers, they should have some kind of recording feature."
"Its pricing is sometimes higher. Its price can be better. Its presale support should be increased. Currently, its presale support is very less. System integrators generally position Blue Prism in front of customers. Though they have an ecosystem, they don't have people who can train for the partner ecosystem. They have to increase the presales consultants for partners. In addition, their L1 and L2 support can also be improved."
"If that bot is running 24/7, we have to allocate people 24/7, 24 hours a day. The cost of support can be quite high."
"The control room is still the desktop version, which restricts access. You can't really access it from anywhere."
"If this solution had a framework for exception handling then it would be very helpful."
"Blue Prism needs to work in a web-based account. I think that the Blue Prism will need to have the main features be web-based so that you can control the box in a web-based environment and not in a client's environment."
"The domain in regards to cognitive abilities and the use of processing activity needs improvement. They have added this capability, but that's not really big in the public. It is more also available for gold partners. So they should improve the user activity for the public or even the regular customer."
"All of the processes that we've automated have been completed successfully, and the bots are able to process them as expected."
"Many of the features that UiPath has are good, although better documentation is required for them."
"While I like the Academy a lot, it could maybe go deeper into some of the topics."
"It is not very easy to build on automations. That's a problem with UiPath. I don't think it's very easy to build automation on top of it."
"The pricing could be more transparent. Overall, I think the pricing is fine, but they keep changing it. It should be more structured. They don't have to tell us what their pricing is, but they should publish how the product is broken down."
"The platform that shows the reports and errors is not too transparent."
"Sometimes, in my experience, Picture In Picture is a bit buggy. It takes over your control, then the controls get mixed. That is one of few issues that I have found."
"Most of our PDFs are scanned PDFs and the OCR does not always capture all the information correctly. That's why the document understanding feature will be good for us."
"The pricing of particularly on the bot licenses is placed to maximize revenue forUiPath and is not in the best interests of the customer. For example, if I have 150 robots, our utilization of that is about 27% as my demands come in spikes. Most of the robots sit there doing nothing, and I paid for them."
