Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is very complete. It's a good solution, for the kind of features that they offer.""It is more secure for complex implementations.""The reusability of the solution is excellent. It's a superior feature - far superior to any other tool on the market.""Ability to see the blueprint of the design executed alongside the actual process.""The most valuable feature is security.""The product itself is quite mature.""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.""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."

Cons
"There's a need to deal with unstructured input with RPA.""The pricing of the solution could be improved. It's a bit expensive right now. They should work to make it more competitive.""Blue Prism is slightly difficult for the non-technical user.""The pricing was a bit high, from what I understand. That might have played a role in the decision to migrate to another solution.""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.""The vendor does not make their pricing clear when you are searching for it, which is something that needs to be improved.""Selecting the right business processes that are stable enough to automate can be challenging.""Blue Prism might consider adding package options to allow users to come onboard in different ways that meet their needs rather than buying in to the whole package."

"Although I like the OCR technology, it could still be further improved.""The deployment could be simplified.""We have connectivity and integration with pretty much every single tech stack across the table that we have in the world, and there are a few areas that they don't do that well yet. I'd be looking for some improvement there, in terms of their integration with certain products.""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%.""The machine learning needs to be improved so that they perform better in terms of predictive analysis and sentiment analysis.""I would definitely be wanting to see OCR features for improving the solution.""The only challenge that we have faced with BotFarm is that there is no continuous deployment. The whole world is moving to the DevOps model, but BotFarm is still not on the DevOps model. It should have integration with the DevOps model. The migration of the bots or bots pipeline is currently purely manual.""The pricing of this product could be better."

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."

  • "Our licensing costs are approximately $3,000 USD annually."
  • "The pricing model could be simplified."

  • "We pay approximately $15,000 USD per year."
  • "Licenses are paid on a yearly basis and the cost is quite high."
  • "It is too expensive and not worth the price."

    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 »
