Overall Satisfaction with Blue Prism

Blue Prism is used for automating the Engineering and Project Management of mundane, repetitive tasks in my organization for a few departments. It automates file handling and downloading related tasks. It brought a sudden ROI for the teams, helped to reduce the team size, and also helped to ensure delivered work within SLAs every time.
  • Visual interface for ease of programming.
  • Debugging is very easy.
  • Automatic logging mechanism.
  • Built-in queue concept.
  • While reading captcha, errors are high.
  • No ticket raising feature for automation and environment challenges.
  • Citrix automation reliability is less.
  • For invoice generation automation, the Project Management team is now able to send invoices to end clients within 2-3 days, down from 15 days.
  • Another team reduced its team size by 40% by automation/
  • Our company won a bid by showcasing RPA technology, and thus quoting a lower bid amount.
There's high execution speed and high reliability of codes made in Blue Prism, compared to UiPath and Automation Anywhere. Lack of front office automation and lack of recording features were the limitations of Blue Prism. Also, Blue Prism had certification programs from the beginning, although other vendors have started to provide it by now. The ease of scalability of Blue Prism is also higher than other RPA vendors.
BOT errors are less common in Blue Prism and reliability is also high compared to other RPA vendors. Blue Prism does not have attended bot functionality, and the reliability is less for Citrix automations. The system to system integration facility is far better in Blue Prism than other tools. BluePrismm is a pioneer in RPA technology, and is still one of the market rulers among all RPA vendors
