We use it to automate repeat activities across organization. There are certain tasks that require us to consolidate data from different applications and report that into an excel sheet. Automating this has helped reduce FTA.
This is being used by a select few departments currently.
We are also in the process of assisting our customers in implementation of UIPath RPA for their automation needs. Supporting parsing of invoices, purchase orders and automating entry into SAP is one of our objective.
  • Enabling automation on remote environment
  • Consolidation of data across applications
  • Automated screen entry
  • Parsing of documents like pdfs (Currently, features provided are very limited to enable parsing of different formats)
  • No support for flash
  • Passing parameters across workflows is confusing
It is well suited to automate well defined repeatable tasks. It works great on citrix and other image based remote desktop applications. However, there is scope of improvement in recording features of the tool. Parsing of documents needs to be worked on to add flexibility. Recent AI vision is a welcome feature.

Being a Recruitment Process Outsourcing Company, we use UiPath for RPO Automation and Data Extraction Solutions. Our Automation Department is using UiPath. In RPO processing, the recruiters' closures and submissions are much more efficiently completed. After implementing automation, our recruiters have more free time and hence closures and submissions have also increased. We are also using UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform [in a similar way] for data extraction solutions.
  • The data scraping is precise and extracts data perfectly. We can easily format the data based on our requirements using Excel Automation.
  • UiPathGo gives many customized activities such as chatbots and vision automation which helps in integrating applications with UiPath. No other tool is providing such facilities.
  • The recording performance is marvelous. Particularly the desktop recording and web recording both work really well.
  • It is difficult to extract data from Iframes, but it is still possible.
  • It would be good to provide a Ubuntu version of UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform.
It is well suited in the recruitment process. I'd say that 80% of the work can be automated [using UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform]. In dynamically changing environments or environments requiring human intervention, it is not well suited. With that being said, there is still the ability to do some automation in dynamically changing environments. UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform can be used in almost all environments.

We're a specialist RPA firm that provides solutions to our clients using UiPath. Common business problems solved by UiPath are usually found in financial services and the energy sector.
  • Data mining + extraction
  • Process optimisation
  • Data entry
  • OCR Tech
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is well suited for web automation, excel. OCR is good if combined with ABBYY.
Support is usually very quick to get back to us, but the UiPath forum is usually more helpful.

We are using the UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform to produce proofs-of-concept for clients showing UiPath as an integration tool between Oracle legacy systems. Also aiding form filling in said systems and in new cloud-based systems. We are also in the process of linking UiPath automation with machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate our in-house expenses. Only the Capgemini Oracle Platform as a Service team are using UiPath as of now (that I am aware of). The business problems it addresses are lack of integration tools between old Oracle Legacy software and new or third-party applications or platforms.
  • Excellent low code environment, easy for beginners to pick up as well as experts in the field. Very intuitive and due to UiPath Studio being an application rather than a web-app, it is much quicker and more stable than other low code tools such as Oracle Integration Cloud.
  • Brilliant online learning through UiPath academy, perfect for people who are new to either UiPath or RPA in general. Easy to listen to and very informative. Doesn't take ages to get through or to understand either.
  • UiPath Go and third-party support help massively when creating automations as it is likely someone has done something similar already. So given that the automation is open-source, it is very easy to get going.
  • Easy to use orchestrator allows for deploying robots with minimal stress, switching from DEV to PROD environments is very simple.
  • Selecting variables for functions can be tricky for novices as there are no "recommended" variables and some are badly named and require googling, memorizing, and wasting time.
  • It is expensive and for low-level automations there are cheaper or free alternatives.
  • Adding extensions can cause issues, some do not install properly and sometimes pre-requisites are not listed.
When used in conjunction with Oracle services or with other partner applications or platforms. Like any automation tool, the system it is deployed on must be robust, not prone to change, and normally require little human intervention. However, when used with advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, it can be used to automate heavy tasks such as expenses.

It is less appropriate to use where integration/automation is already included, such as with certain Oracle cloud systems.

I am having a great experience with UiPath RPA. Nowadays it has become a famous tool for dealing with image-based automation. It can be used so comfortably. The biggest plus is that it is incredibly easy to use. I highly appreciate the way it gives me perfect reporting and also gives me clear-cut ideas about the processes. It is immensely easy for monitoring the key operations.
  • If there is a need to share data mutually with other platforms then UiPath is the best tool. It makes me much [more] confident by giving me a full-fledged authority on data [...] for automating even complex or hard processes.
  • The best thing about it is that it is very much user-friendly. Moreover, it can be easily adopted.
  • This is the most reliable tool for making robots. This is indeed the best ever tool for automating multiple processes as well as plugins.
  • This is the most user-friendly tool. The only drawback is that people that are having less knowledge about programming, have to face difficulty in its use. Due [to] which they have to learn complete knowledge in order to have complete command of it.
  • Otherwise I do not have any complaint against this RPA.
I suggest you to go and [get] this tool. It will make you get rid of the complexities. Also, it is based on modern and advance technology. It has strong capabilities that will surely lay a positive impact on your organization. If I write about my experience [...] in simple words, I would say this tool is excellent and it keeps everything I can expect from it.

UiPath has been using throughout the organization. We started with IT department but now it spread across the department because it is very useful. Mostly we addressed accounting issues and jobs with UiPath because it is expert and easy to develop on SAP. Our robotics COE team who are looking for new opportunities and our business analyst are sharing the details with developers.
  • If you are looking to automate some SAP jobs, it's best.
  • If you have a problem with data manipulating UiPath best for this.
  • Documentation understanding works very good.
  • Customer Support improvement needed.
  • UiPath Academy - please add more courses to learn.
  • AI factor.
If you know the details of the process for each step and it static process not dynamically change the thing, UiPath is best to automate that process. But, if the process needs some human decision and [requires] changing some part after making a decision, it less suitable for RPA.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is being used to automate some of the common manual tasks done by L1 level workforce, including data entry, calculations, etc. Some of the business problems it helps with are increasing focus time for workforce and increasing productivity for their actual core work.
  • Great low-code platform with very low learning curve
  • Great workflow management and automation capabilities
  • Extremely powerful AI & ML capabilities in the product
  • Pricing is little high and should be more flexible
  • Training and available help need to be made better for users
Well suited--Extremely useful to automate your day-to-day repetitive tasks that take lot of time.
Less suited--Simple automations can be done using some of the other free RPA tools like UI Flows from Power Platform MS.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is used in specific departments like adminstration, procurement and others etc. where automation is more relevant and needed to replace repititive and time consuming tasks in my organisation
Tackling numerous tickets naturally which have standard jobs and standard advances is one of the key reasons to use UiPath
Can be integrated with ERP to bring down the time consumed from lengthy hours to 1-2 hours of time
  • Integration with ERP is easy and efficient
  • Extremely useful to computerize your day by day repititive tasks
  • UiPath Bots perform and does processes assigned to it, working non-stop 24/7 without any human involvement
  • Yearly License cost is comparatively high
  • Product Crashes multiple times when loaded with huge data oriented files causing it to be restarted again & again - they need to work on solving this
  • Focus more on providing technical support - really a time consuming problem i am taliking about, they take their own sweet time in resolving issues
Useful in automating processes across departments and saving plenty of time, cost beneficial and also efficient to use. offers wide variety of scope to use and once implemented, hardly human involvement is needed
less appropriate is where the technical support is much needed but hard to get. Also work on hanging and crashing issues, it is becoming a real problem on regular basis

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is being used as automation platform for key data and workflows of the organization and we have integrated different applications to get attended and unattended routine workflows running under the artificial intelligence of UiPath RPA. We are using this platform in few of our key departments like HR, Finance, PMO and Technical Operations. UiPath RPA is primarily used by us to make different processes automated like Web management, Email data, Organizational announcements, and data updating etc.
  • Automatic data and workflows management through AI.
  • Equally useful for attended and unattended workflows.
  • User friendly interface
  • Not a mobile friendly platform.
UiPath Enterprise RPA is one of the most advanced robotic automation solution in the market and has capabilities lot more than a regular AI tool as it also take care of your unattended data and workflows equally efficient. This can be a very appropriate and useful tool for the organizations who have to go through management of set workflows and data in their routine business needs.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is used to deliver RPA-based projects across my company. It has taken the business process automation at the next level. UiPath has many inbuilt commands, which makes automation simple, easy to learn, and deploy. Excel Command, Screen Capture, OCR integration, support for multiple other applications, and NLP support have all helped novice people to gain momentum and earn a good reputation in IT development. I developed a hiring process automation bot for my client. It was deployed on Orchestrator and is working perfectly fine. It helped my client in FTE saving and saves their time in hiring the best candidate.
  • Citrix Automation
  • Excel Automation
  • Web Scraping
  • Chat Bot development
  • Application Integration with other software like SAP
  • OCR technology has a lot of workarounds
  • Multiple Cloud-based solutions can be automated and there is a scope where a company should work.
  • Machine Learning can be introduced with more sophisticated capabilities
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is well suited for the following scenarios -> OCR, ChatBot, Excel, Web scraping, Citrix Automation, SQL Operations

It is not suited for the following -> Complex ChatBots, Unstructured OCR templates, Cognitive Abilities
It has made my life easier and helped my client's business to grow as well. It has given him profits, which made him look back to me for every new project that comes to mind which I highly appreciate.

UiPath Studio is being used by many different departments for its ease of use and the plethora of features. For instance, our HR department has been using UiPath Studio for automating their employee leave management and travel allowance process. Similarly, UiPath Studio is being used by our service desk team at L1 for automating some of the low-priority incidents based on some pre-set conditions. It's also been utilized by our finance department for streamlining and standardizing its payroll process. We make use of UiPath Studio for both attended and unattended automation for achieving front-end and back-end processes. UiPath Studio has considerably helped us to increase overall process efficiency by automating the mundane tasks, leaving us with more time to focus on high-priority tasks.
  • Intuitive yet very powerful and easy-to-use interface
  • Built-in AI and ML capabilities
  • Very prompt user community along with interactive tutorials
  • A well managed web-based centralized orchestrator
  • Robust error handling mechanism
  • Needs to have more OCR engines on board
  • Pricing could be made more flexible and affordable
  • Integration with Outlook needs to be further fine-tuned
  • RE platform needs to be explained in depth on UiPath Academy
UiPath Studio, or any RPA tool for that matter, is suited best where there is very little or no human decision making involved. Also, any process with digital inputs and a lot of structure data is suitable for RPA using UiPath Studio. If the process has too many decisions involved along with unstructured data and multiple legacy systems, then that is not an ideal process for RPA consideration.

It is used across the whole organization. It is the RPA tool my company has chosen for being the best RPA option in the Magic Quadrant Gartner 2019. I have not had many business problems. My company uses GSuite instead of Microsoft Office, but UiPath already has a package of activities to work with GSuite in the background with no problems. Many applications already have direct integration with UiPath, which makes automation easier.
  • User-friendly Interface
  • Many products that make the ecosystem reliable (orchestrator, automation hub, studio, attended and unattended robots, etc.)
  • Direct integration with many applications
  • Orchestrator allows works with queues
  • Business exception and error is really easy to manage.
  • Huge community developing new components and supporting your queries
  • You do not need to know any programming language.
  • Being the most used tool in RPA makes it easier to resolve your problems in the forum.
  • UiPath also has courses to learn how to use it.
  • License price
  • Low customization interface
  • Automation hub could be difficult for non-familiarized RPA user
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is completely well suited for integration: databases, HTTP requests, Microsoft Office, etc. Also the automation with selectors (web, desktop apps, etc) is really easy to develop and very reliable.
From my point of view, the worst scenario is with Citrix, which requiered image recognition instead of selectors. It makes the automation more difficult but not impossible!
I have had no problem contacting with the UiPath team to resolve some doubts about the platform. In addition, the forum of UiPath has many developers happy to help you with your doubts and usually resolve your problems in less than 24 hours. The community is growthing more and more.

We aim for HR transformation for our clients. We use UiPath extensively to bring in digital efficiency to the HR process, bridging the legacy HR system with modern applications for reporting and analysis.
  • Integration with legacy mainframe application
  • Integration with AI models and python
  • Integration with API for seamless reporting
  • Debugging tool
  • Single license for all the products
  • Testing framework
UiPath is well suited for building integrations with legacy applications and modern applications and not well suited if the modern applications already have API for seamless integrations. The attended robot concept is also not well suited, as the person has to sit idle during the execution of the robot in the user machine.
There is a lot of room for improvement in customer support. The customer support takes lot of time to respond. Most of the junior resources are not aware of the product. They need senior guidance to solve even a small issue. A lot of trial and error is being done in issue fixing.

I have been using UiPath for several months now and I think it is one of the best tools I have ever seen. In fact a basic training to start using UiPath (with the free downloadable version) can be done with the UiPath materials themselves and they certify you. This basic training is more than enough to start developing the first automations in daily work for you and those around you; I think that testing this training (1 or 2 weeks) is vital to start taking advantage from robots and especially to realize the possibilities that RPA offers (for professional jobs you will have to buy licenses or even outsource the programming of complex robots, specially if you are not a programmer). I think RPA is here to stay, and UiPath from my experience is a simple and very powerful tool, I have not tested other RPA software but my experience with UiPath cannot be better, I recommend it for anyone interested in learning and in new technologies, although not a programmer!!
  • Easy to learn.
  • Good user interface.
  • Drag and drop activities.
  • Image processing.
  • Price is high.
  • Computer version not working.
UiPath is an application where you can build your Robotics process automation to help you to save maximum time. If you want to save your time using robots on your daily non-valuable tasks, get started with UiPath. UiPath provides all the material which supports you in learning all the features and how to develop, if you are not familiar with coding.
UiPath is designed for addressing future kind of things. We implemented this robotics technology in our organization in February last year.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is being used by several company departments such as IT, MIS, and HR. A wide variety of solutions are being enabled integrating internal and external Information Systems. Customer Support representatives benefit from the automated processing of mail requests. Corrective IT actions are being automatically triggered and performed by smart robots.
  • Integrating Office applications such as Outlook, Excel, and Word
  • Filling in complex forms on Web interfaces
  • Executing command line instructions to administer operating systems
  • I believe that management of the application can be optimized.
  • I believe that Cloud licensing costs are too expensive.
  • Cloud SaaS version availability is too low.
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is best suited for the integration of office automation software tools, replacing dull and non-creative work. It frees humans to perform more challenging tasks, involving creativity and smart analysis of problems that must be solved. It enables automatic response for most common incidents encountered in office work. It does so without requiring the implementation of complex programming projects.
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform provides excellent support for the product itself, its infrastructure, and account management. Customer queries are always welcomed and prompt response is available from the technical or sales team. Release management policy is clear and each new version introduces support for many modern features required such as chatbots and AI.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is being used first in our company to ensure that we have experience with it before we make it commercially available to clients. We used UiPath to automate internal processes such as Payroll and the Background Checking of BPO associates. It greatly helps the company to build confidence around RPA automation since we decided to offer RPA services to clients. Now, we have a lot of project experience in RPA and we have been using the UiPath as the primary tool.
  • It is easier to use and very efficient
  • Do not need to have a coding background
  • A community that helps you if encountered issues
  • RE framework that can be used
  • Easy to implement and easy drop and drop coding
  • Hard to debug functional test
  • The license for each features is pricey
  • The general search button sometimes is not working properly in the UiPath studio
Uipath Enterprise RPA Platform is well suited for processes that involve highly manual and repetitive processes like reading PDFs, web applications, and MS documents, and matching for value discrepancies.
Most of the projects that we are handling, especially those companies that our clients, I suggest using UiPath.

The tool has been used for years by analysts and IT developers. The activities of UiPath basically go through some stages which are planning, projection and execution. Understanding tasks and workflows, robots do everything automatically without stopping and 24 hours a day. We use everything from simple tasks and general e-mail activities to the most advanced ones involving Excel spreadsheets that contribute to the financial and sales sectors with the aim of creating, editing, filling, calculating and saving spreadsheets. We also use it in databases to make connections to the database, execute SQL, extract and save selected data.
  • Acceleration in processes and tests.
  • Excellent community and tutorials.
  • Everything is under control.
  • Great UiPath Community that helps a lot.
  • Automation of E-mails, Excel Spreadsheets, databases and Windows Systems.
  • I feel that there could still be an improvement in the artificial intelligence system. But in general, I have nothing to complain about.
UiPath has great cost benefit and I claim that it is one of the best tools in this segment. It has a simple and easy to understand approach with a good interface and the main one that I believe is easy to learn. Processes that previously depended on many hours of a person are now done by robots and we are not concerned anymore. Everything is under control.
The UiPath tool brings a great return on investment with great usability, learning and maintenance of the scripts. The community is great and in the frequently asked questions, you usually find what you need because it is a doubt that many RPA developers have also had. With all these benefits and positives it is very difficult to change the RPA tool.

We use UiPath as a tool to automate repetitive manual tasks that need to be performed in the same manner either once a day/week/month. Many processes related to finance and managing details are automated and bots perform them to reduce manual labour. Many processes that deal with processing data in excels and putting it to websites have been automated and these bots are live. It has really been a great help for our back office team as well. Data entry tasks can now be performed using UiPath robots, resources can be utilized to do some more technical work hence resulting in better efficiency.
  • Processing data in Excel files: Using lookups and other formulas and creating pivots. It can easily read, write or update excel data.
  • Entering/ Reading data to/ from websites and web pages.
  • Interacting with various applications like SAP to perform better data interpretations.
  • Integrating with multiple databases.
  • UiPath can still improve the performance of its Citrix based recorders.
  • The OCRs can be updated to provide better results.
The UiPath Enterprise RPA framework is best suited to be used for front office and back office tasks where repetitive work is done. The UiPath bots can easily read, interpret, analyze or write data from/to a preferred data source. It is best to use them in scenarios where much decision making is not required by humans and a predefined set of rules is followed to complete the process. It is great to use them for customer service support desk or data entry tasks.
It is less suited in scenarios where a lot of human decisions are required. But we can solve that problem too, using attended automation.
The customer support of UiPath is very supportive and provides immediate solutions for the problems. They are also available in the community to provide instant solutions. You just need to raise a ticket or drop a mail for your concerns and the support team would provide the best service at the earliest.

UiPath is being used to solve bigger problems than just solving repetitive work. 100s of processes are being implemented to automate in different departments wherever the opportunity exists for RPAs and save money for the client in the long run.
  • Automating Web Applications
  • Processed data using APIs and generating reports
  • Monitoring outlook
  • Slow IDE
  • Nested blocks when designing
  • More code editing options for programmers
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform can be used to run on Windows applications, Citrix, etc. and also it can run by finding something by image match (OCR). These tools are hot in the market and clients are looking forward to saving money by giving this work to the computer/bot instead of humans to help humans to make better decisions.
UiPath is constantly working to improve their tool by providing updates to it. Their new Studio X is like IDEs we used to have for older coding tools, but faster and better. Their monitoring tools are also better to work with on Orchestrator.

My organization uses UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform to implement automation solutions for our clients. The main business problem that UiPath targets is how can we enable our clients to reduce reliance on human capital, unlock higher efficiency and quality of operations and enable them to scale beyond what was possible with manual processing
  • Has a large library of pre-built UiPath activities that can be utilized, meaning you do not have to start building robotic solutions from scratch
  • The UI is user-friendly and reminicent of the MS Visual Studio so experienced .NET framework developers will feel right at home
  • Easy to record interactions with web, desktop and citrix applications and scrape data from web interfaces means development time is sped up significantly
  • Automation solution debugging capabilities and features could be enhanced to make it easier for developers and identify, validate and ammend code
  • The attribute matching could be improved to allow for more flexibility in screen identification
  • Overall workflow layout could be improved as navigating a massive solution through nested components may be inconvenient and you may not get a comprehensive helicopter view
UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is very well suited for small to medium enterprises who want to scale up operations. Especially ones that have a strong and well-established in-house IT and Development team. It may be less suited for large enterprises or industries where data security and encryption plays a crucial role.
I give this rating because I believe that the overall support for UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform is great - the tool has extensive documentation available online to help with setting up, managing and using the tool. It also has free courses available online through the UiPath academy which help upskill the team. If more support is needed, UiPath is easy to reach via email.
