Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The only feature that stands out in Blue Prism, as compared to other tools, is security. This is the only reason for still having Blue Prism in our bucket. It is very secure and reliable, and it has also been in the market for a very long time. We automated a lot of federal and government automation processes very recently with this solution.""It has a centrally managed infrastructure, and it is secure. Our client was using it because of its ease of use. They had already identified some workflows that were trained on Blue Prism RPAs. It was much more convenient for them to preselect Blue Prism as compared to other vendors.""This is a scalable product.""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's quite easy to use and easy to understand the process studio.""Its ability to talk to different systems that we have is a valuable feature. We use Pega, which is like a credit card processing system. We also use a Debit Process Manager, which is like the Visa debit application. In the bank, we have credit card and debit card sections, and we need to kind of investigate some of the transactions when customers are complaining about the charges. Blue Prism can log in to a different system to perform the exact actions that the agents are doing. This feature has been very helpful. Its ability to engage with external systems and websites is also very valuable. Each of our RPA projects could go across different systems. We have an in-house banking system. We also use the Visa network, and we have to go to different sites to do a lot of data scraping to ensure the data in our system matches the data in the Visa systems, and we just deal with some of the charges.""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.""It works very well for batch processing at the backend. Scalability-wise, it is very robust. It is also stable."

"The technical support is good.""The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity.""The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel.""The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations.""I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable.""This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features.""The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems."

Cons
"All of the processes that we've automated have been completed successfully, and the bots are able to process them as expected.""Developing is more time consuming than with other products.""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.""There are some security issues in Blue Prism. The German vendor Servicetrace is way better. This is also reflected in the Gartner report where Servicetrace is mentioned as the tool of choice in high-security environments. So, security, particularly in terms of administration, needs to be improved. We must have the possibility to prevent the administration from taking a look at the ongoing process. When we have restricted data flow, the operations team should not be able to take a look at the data that is processed.""My clients report that there is a little bit of a challenge regarding the cost-benefit ratio.""Everyone uses Workday and Salesforce and all that stuff. If they had specific plugins to interact with these enterprise tools, that would be very helpful.""Technical support is in need of improvement.""The activities that we do are a bit difficult to do in Blue Prism as compared to UiPath. UiPath provides create activities and create packages related to AI analytical skills. This is something that Blue Prism doesn't have."

More Blue Prism Cons →

"One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition.""The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects.""The OCR functionality needs to be improved.""It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems.""WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard.""The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses.""There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions."
