UiPath Automation Platform is well-suited for automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks such as invoice processing, data entry, and report generation. By using UiPath Automation Platform, employees can focus on more strategic tasks, which leads to increased efficiency. Additionally, UiPath Automation Platform is highly effective at automating rule-based processes, such as financial processes like bank statement reconciliation, account payable, and account receivable processes that follow a set of predetermined rules.

They continually persevere and are willing to bring in new data sets to make the platform as productive as possible. The team continually challenges our internal business processes and setups to ensure that we are hunting for opportunities and pushing the limits of what we thought was possible for improving our operations The X-ray view within the process explorer and the variant explorer provides a transparent overview of the order to cash process which we did not have previously OLAP tables and different dimensions to slice the data with [helping] us find the root cause of the improvement opportunity that we want to focus on Execution instruments like Action Flow help us take advantage of any insights provided to us within the process explorer Dashboard views of specific KPIs help us build and export management reports with ease Read full review UiPath is very simple to learn. Any type of application can be automated (Desktop Application, Web Application and also applications reachable only via remote technologies such as Citrix, Remote Desktop and so on). The writing of a process code takes place entirely through the use of objects. In the event that there were no objects capable of solving a particular problem, it is possible to use some languages of the .net platform such as: VB.net, C#. It is easy to scale the solution by adding more robots to run a process in case the solution requires more performance in the future. It can also be used by functional analysts to design the flow to be automated. An academy is available online where basic and advanced courses can be taken. It is also possible to take a completely free basic certification. Read full review Cons Performance: While most of the time the performance is great, there are still days where the performance is too low for too long periods of time. Still some minor, inexplicable errors with no pattern (i.e. Data Load gets stuck for 2 days) Client Centricity (They are working on that with their new structure of Consultants, though) Read full review As I mentioned, Excel automation is not very effective, there are a number of packages to add, but there is nothing as smooth as a good macro. Working with selectors is certainly challenging and UiPath does a good job with that, but there is room for improvement since the interface could be smarter in selecting the right attributes and warn the user if something is not properly setup.

We have been able to leverage Celonis [greatly] because of the commitment and support we receive from our data scientist. I strongly believe that we would not be able to accomplish this without her assistance. Moreover, when we escalate matters, the product development is engaged and commits resources to make sure our initiatives/business cases are supported.

This platform has so much potential and have been garnering a lot of attention by proving benefits in terms of saving operational and manpower costs. I am sure with minute efforts we were able to achieve our ROI and the same is the case with many of our customers whom we have been working around Digital Automation initiatives.

It is a great tool but also requires a lot of work to get it into a useable fashion. Part of this is on our end as we don't have the dedicated analyst function yet to really become self-sufficient with Celonis. It also uncovers a lot of data issues or at the very least, multiple rounds of development and data validation are required before getting to a position where the business users feel comfortable with the data being reflected. This is fairly normal with any data-related development effort and perhaps not unique to Celonis.

It's an easy to maintain and easy to use RPA Tool. It has a relatively low learning curve when compared to other RPA tools in the market. That is mostly due to it's Academy where the bulk of engineers gather their information from. And their Community Forum, is outstanding with support from around the world and almost, if not all, every topic imaginable in the RPA field.
The Community Edition is updated on a regular basis, and last year they even managed to release a build every month!
The Orchestrator, Platform, Go!, Academy is cloud based which makes access to information and data very easy.

We submit tickets to Celonis through product support. No assistance is generally provided, have to wait and the ticket is then escalated to product support in Germany. Many times we submit the ticket and the support desk asks us the same questions back where they should already have this information.

UiPath RPA has an exceptional studio interface. It has been a year and so since I am using UiPath RPA. Whether it is some my personal task to scrape information & links from the Journal or find a specific character string from multiple PDF collection using OCR, UiPath RPA has made its roots to our technological ecosystem

The key difference for me as the user and as an analyst is the ease with which Celonis allowed me to shape the analysis myself. Other tools rely on what an analyst created in hopes that it will serve the purpose to everybody. So many times, however, I find myself stuck, wishing to apply a different angle to my analysis but needing to request IT enhancement, which takes time. Celonis gives me the extra flexibility which I have not yet experienced anywhere else.

As compared to other products, we require programming knowledge and concepts to work but UiPath is for everyone. It provides us extensive event logging at various stages and effective exception handling for applications and business. It increases our agility and enhances the overall productivity further by using the source control SVC. The solution that we implemented is also very scalable in terms of incorporating new requirements.
The open source tools require lots of IT effort in order to set up and maintain over time. UiPath is like a complete package and customer service is also active in terms of solving issues arising while automating procession on a day to day basis.

It can be widely used across various departments regardless of platform the product,processes, use cases are build on.
Read full review Return on Investment I have seen Celonis save tens of millions of euros for some clients in the improvements of processing of invoices. I have seen Celonis take days off of processing times in purchasing processes. I have seen Celonis provide insights for potential opportunities but no monetary or process-based results when an organization did not take action of the insights generated by the platform. Read full review We are well on our way to automating our expenses, saving so many hours for project managers and engagement managers. Proofs-of-concept excite our clients, though we are yet to make a sale on a project. UiPath specifically has incited interest with our apprentices and has led them to join the RPA team.
