Pros
"The most valuable features are the exception handling and embedded control room.""Blue Prism MAPIEx and the Java Bridge are really great features provided for automating Java-based applications and for allowing mail to send and receive smoothly.""I use the basic features that are very useful.""I like the cloud features such as IADA and Decipher.""The development interface is quite easy to work with.""The most valuable feature is that people with zero coding knowledge can use Blue Prism very well.""The new features that have come out have been great.""It is not just for coders, as you can have a diagrammatic representation of the process."

More Blue Prism Pros →

"The development time for ProcessRobot is very good compared to other solutions.""I have found the scheduling and email notifications features to very good compared to other RPA tools I have used.""This product is the best in terms of price and capabilities.""It is very easy to learn and use. It is quite useful for any sort of back-office work. Any kind of work with low and medium complexity is very doable in ProcessRobot. For higher complexity, some refinement is required, but it is doable.""The most valuable features of this solution are the cost and ease of use, it's very simple.""The interface is user-friendly.""This solution improved the reporting in our organization. The financial department was doing a lot of copy pasting from different sources to create financial reports. Through ProcessRobot, we were able to automate all those copy pasting and produce all those financial reports overnight."

Cons
"I don't like that it is so limited, anything that you do feels limited in your capabilities.""Lotus Notes automation should be easier to understand.""I have been speaking directly with Blue Prism's engagement manager about making the solution more web-based. It's not quite there yet. Currently, the latest version is still under the beta version, so, as a customer, we don't have access to it. They are making it much more web-based, but for now, everything you have to log into requires an enterprise server — It's still more client-based than web-based.""It's not very easy to use. There is some learning curve that you need to manage as an individual.""Blue Prism could be more scalable.""The solution is not user-friendly. It has a very high learning curve.""The recording of the transaction is missing in this solution.""If that bot is running 24/7, we have to allocate people 24/7, 24 hours a day. The cost of support can be quite high."

More Blue Prism Cons →

"This solution should be more resilient, with robots more capable of recovering after an error.""In an upcoming release, the exception handling mechanism could improve. The issue that we are facing is whenever there is a failure in any of the middle execution and if you wanted to navigate it to the end of the last line of execution, we do not have this feature available. If we had this feature it would make it even more stable.""They need to come up with a little more on AI and precision discovery path to be able to record the processes.""Better support is needed for building custom components on top of ProcessRobot.""Some automation features on some programs did not work smoothly.""It should be more stable, and their technical support should be faster. It should also have more integration with tools from other vendors, such as SAP and Oracle, and technology partners, such as Salesforce.""We are looking to see more features implemented there are already available in UiPath or Automation Anywhere."
