Overall Satisfaction with Blue Prism

We are using Blue prism for automating recruitment processes, outsourcing, and it is being used by our Automation department(Team). We are using it to solve business problems such as web crawling, replacing our RSS feed, souring, parsing, and many more. Recently we solved a major problem in using the RSS feed. We have Replaced the RSS feed with Blue Prism.
  • The major strength of Blue Prism is that it has load balancing, encryption, Audit, spying modes, etc.
  • Dashboards can be configured in such a way that session details can be directed to external analytics.
  • Many other excellent features, like automating Excel, XML, CSV, and PDFs, and with no need to write any code.
  • I personally like the software developed in Java, as mainframe and Web-based applications can be easily automated.
  • It is better to have functionalities for an attended ROBOT, but I am okay with that.
  • Data types are constant only if we are using their special type of code block. I've had no other issues with Blue Prism operations.
  • It would be better to have a free online "Advanced Training Program" for Blue Prism, apart from their certification program.
  • For a level of medium projects, Blue Prism performs well, and the speed of execution is good. In our organization, we are applying for medium projects, where we can increase the workforce of our employees.
  • Blue Prism's Client Server Architecture is good, because we need such a feature to implement automation.
  • When it comes to pricing, I personally feel that it is costlier.
In our company, we are using many RPA tools. For most of our medium projects we are using Blue Prism, as other tools are frequently crashing. One of the best features is that the robots can be unattended. Blue Prism has a high rate of reliability when compared to other tools, and Re-usability is also good in Blue Prism.
Blue Prism is well suited as a Back office Robot. We are currently in the process of replacing our RSS feed with Blue Prism. If you are looking for a front office robot, then it is less appropriate. Blue Prism has a good built-in queue, where we don't need to set up a database, and it also has a great debugging system.
