Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like the error handling, it's very good.""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.""Blue Prism has a lot of flexibility to integrate with other enterprise applications""The only good thing about Blue Prism is the execution speed.""All of the processes that we've automated have been completed successfully, and the bots are able to process them as expected.""This is a scalable product.""The web-based designer is very user-friendly and easy to use.""The tool is very technically sound."

"Pega Robotics offers all the required features to build end-to-end process automation like any other similar tools. It's unique development style using data line and control flow line makes it easy to debug through the flow.""Using the tool actually ends up teaching you about making workflows more efficient.""The workflow system is very intuitive.""The low-code/no-code development aspect of the solution is great.""They are leaders in the same industry.""The most valuable features are the loops to lookup tables to read the data.""It is really flexible in what it can do.""The most valuable aspect for myself was access to the .net framework. If I couldn't figure something out using the objects that they had provided, I could bring in the .net objects and do so using similar logic that I would in a .net or C sharp coding language. Having that familiarity was helpful."

Cons
"Blue Prism could improve by having better integration with Computer Vision.""The upgrades could be managed better. I would also like to see more true AI development and machine learning.""The deployment of the bots should be much faster and more intuitive.""Blue Prism could be more scalable.""The OCR capability, along with the connectivity with some of the legacy tools, needs to be improved.""From a monitoring perspective, the way the screens are set up, or the reporting within Blue Prism, is not really user-friendly. You need a technical person to basically put that up. It's not necessarily easily viewable.""They have OCR technology, but it's not that great.""We would like to have something, not particularly within the tool, that gives flexibility to the end-users to schedule the bots themselves. There should be some kind of control room flexibility so that they can go in. We don't have to always keep that centralized with us. We would also like to have inbuilt scheduling and resource pooling to distribute the bots on servers from within the platform. I should be able to distribute or orchestrate them internally so that if one bot takes a little longer than planned, it automatically shifts to another server. We would also like its price to be lower."

"The development experience needs to be improved.""I would like to see an enhanced auditing feature included.""Pega has a no-code low-code environment. We do everything based on established rules. You kind-of have to learn how all their rules work and how it works for robotics before you can use the solution effectively.""The handwritten structured and semi-structured data recognition accuracy is much lower and is an area that definitely needs to improve.""I have faced many scenarios in the business workflow, where a few applications run on the Citrix environment. That could be a critical part of the process without which business won't be able to accept the automation solution. Because of one small bottleneck, you will lose a very good candidate for process automation.""The OCR capabilities of the solution could be improved.""The ease-of-use could be improved.""You cannot use a two-dimensional array to read the data."
