"The ease of building automation and the development environment"
"The most valuable feature is the ability to write custom code."
"The reusability of the solution is excellent. It's a superior feature - far superior to any other tool on the market."
"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."
"Once it does the monitor, it collects the respective data and creates an output that is required for reconfiguration."
"The user performance is the most valuable feature."
"It is more secure for complex implementations."
"The solution is very complete. It's a good solution, for the kind of features that they offer."
"The second thing that I like about Datacap is the fingerprint capture which is easy to configure on Datacap. From the form of the document, if a document is redundant in the same department, we can configure the capture based on the form of the documents"
"While we are doing indexing, we tag the document type. It's programmed inside of Datacap to automatically detect the document based on a given template. It auto-indexes that document, which means that it automatically tags the correct document type to the scanned document."
"The solution automates manual data entry."
"Blue Prism is slightly difficult for the non-technical user."
"Selecting the right business processes that are stable enough to automate can be challenging."
"The cost is a bit high. Other tools are much cheaper."
"They should improve the user-friendliness and they should change their business model."
"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."
"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."
"The vendor does not make their pricing clear when you are searching for it, which is something that needs to be improved."
"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 interface can be more intuitive."
"When I scan a document in Datacap that has a watermark or the document is a little distorted, the image output is poor. It either becomes completely black, or there is so much distortion that we cannot read the numbers or the addresses mentioned in the POD. When we scan a document, we expect the output to be at least 95 percent accurate."
"I would like better ease of use and more support options."
