Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ease of building automation and the development environment""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 user performance is the most valuable feature.""Ability to see the blueprint of the design executed alongside the actual process.""The reusability of the solution is excellent. It's a superior feature - far superior to any other tool on the market.""It is more secure for complex implementations.""The most valuable feature of Blue Prism's Virtual Workforce is that it is quite stable.""The product itself is quite mature."

More Blue Prism Cloud Pros »

"Once we deploy the automation into the production, our manpower has been reduced so there are only one or two people needed for the backup. The rest will be taken care of by the automation itself. So, there has been a drastic reduction in our workforce.""Stability-wise, it's really good. When it comes to backend automation, it's amazing.""I appreciate the simplicity of the interface as I am learning to be a developer.""The automation Cloud Platform has definitely helped reduce the time it takes to create automation. It brings a lot of things together. It's easy to use for clients and customers. It makes it easy to bring different disciplines together, so I don't need to think about how to reuse my code, or how to explain to the customer, and I don't need to share the processes to be able to release, run, and monitor and to get reports on the results.""The ability to do citizen development is the most valuable feature. That initiative has helped us to expand it because that gives folks that are closer to the business the ability to develop their own solutions that are tailored to what they need to do, as opposed to waiting for someone in IT to contact them to build it out. Or to wait for a business analyst to provide some type of value metric, but they can actually go and build it themselves.""I really like that I am able to tell the story, using Orchestrator, how humans work, how bots work, and how humans and bots work together.""UiPath's ease of use for automating our company's processes is a five out of five. We have found it very easy to talk to them, identifying what can be done along with the potential use cases. They have been very good at guiding us through what is realistic at this point, how their robots could help us save time and improve accuracy, and how our users can engage with their robots, e.g., ensuring that users engage with the robots and use their product.""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."

Cons
"Lacking advance features like CIO and optical character recognition""The pricing of the solution could be improved. It's a bit expensive right now. They should work to make it more competitive.""The cost is a bit high. Other tools are much cheaper.""There's a need to deal with unstructured input with RPA.""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 pricing was a bit high, from what I understand. That might have played a role in the decision to migrate to another solution.""It takes a while to get up and running.""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 training could be improved by clarifying more and more at every step.""The built-in OCR is only 60% to 70% correct if you're analyzing a PDF that has images in it, so this is an area that can be improved.""The cognitive area is one where there is room for improvement. Automation Anywhere has grown in that area, whereas UiPath still is more dependent on third-party integration. That is something which they should be focusing on more. They should acquire a product and get it integrated.""The should be more out-of-the-box models if UiPath keeps adding on.""One scenario where it is not great is on remote desktop automation, where applications are not directly accessible.""The regular update of the Community Edition means that the UiRobot path is constantly changing on every update.""It is a little confusing at first. I came from Blue Prism where you have one dashboard and very little jumping back and forth. In Orchestrator, you have menus, and there is a lot of jumping between tabs and sub-tabs to get to the specific information, but once you learn that, it is pretty intuitive. There is just that initial learning curve if you're coming from another system. Blue Prism does everything in the one pane, and even though UiPath is neatly laid out, you just got to learn how they laid it out.""The company needs to continue to develop artifical intelligence capabilities."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing can be negotiated in situations where there will be heavy usage.""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."

"I only know about the community version. They give us two robots as a part of the community version, and they are enough for my practice and personal automations. For the office work, my Infra team checks the licenses needed for a particular use case, and my management team manages the pricing and licenses.""The price of UiPath is a little bit high, although there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""Licensing can be cumbersome and makes overall pricing needs somewhat hard to forecast, but not too difficult once the tool is scaled.""Costing and licensing were generally in line with expectations of this type of software.""Different licenses are used to activate features that the organization wants to use. For example, they offer licenses for UiPath Studio X, attended automation, unattended automation, document understanding, and so forth.""I'd advise others to consider sharing the costs after ensuring they understand their expectations for utilizing the capacity of the robots.""I think the setup cost is quite nominal, but the licensing might be on a higher side when compared to Automation Anywhere.""The best thing is that the UiPath Software is available as a Community Edition that is free and sufficient for personal use or small business."
