https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/jY/rA/0EG18D27T0HS.PNGUiPath is a Major Upgrade in Automation and Digital TransformationWe mainly worked on Web Automation for US-based Clients in Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) Domain, which involves automating end to end processes based on functional requirements using Agile Best Practices. Technically, it involves Excel Automation in terms of reading the details of users having loads of data around 2-3 lakhs records per process. These are further processed after login into the application using integrated securities and Client Level authentication. At the end of the process sending the automated emails to the stakeholders informing about the insights above the transactions and errors that occurred using an unattended bot for the whole process. The handiest aspect when learning and implementing UiPath, it is less programming when compared to other software tools which require firstly programming concepts then one needs to have tool familiarity.UiPath has now introduced Source and Version control capabilities using GitHub and NuGet by Microsoft Corporation which gives us more control for the overall maintenance of repositories and workflows providing Continous Integration and Continous Deployment.,It provides more control while dealing with Web Applications, Desktop Applications, VDI and Image-Based Automation on Citrix. Can be extended its scope on Mainframe Automation. GitHub Integration in order to maintain different repositories for different process.,Implementing image-based automation is quite challenging especially when you are working on the Client network using VDI. There can be many more activities that need to be provided so it can be further enhanced. If not possible to give the activities, then at least provide some paid activities like Abby OCR when it comes to the Optical Character Recognition. They have recently rolled out a course which is having contents for automating salesforce application, but no automation is required when you use sales force for development. Extension to Linux based Applications. Security can be further enhanced by providing different activities rather than basic Typesecurestring in order to control logging at the verbose level.,9,Automating the rule-based tasks with the help of robots saves time money and dollars for an organization. Inbuilt framework for implementing Banking and Health Insurance. The third-party integration adds on like ABBYY FlexiCapture is quite costly. Linux-based applications cannot be automated. Citrix applications are some times difficult to handle when the screen coordinates changes.,Selenium, Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS), SoapUI Pro, Eclipse, Jenkins, Unified Functional Testing (formerly HP UFT), Slack, Workplace by Facebook, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database 12c,SoapUI Pro, Selenium, Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS), GitHub, Jenkins, JIRA Software, Unified Functional Testing (formerly HP UFT), TOSCA Orchestrated Service Virtualization, Appium, Slack, Workplace by Facebook, MS SharePoint, Oracle Database 12c, Microsoft SQL Server, Eclipse, Notepad++, iSpring Suite, Postman, Chrome Remote Desktop, TeamViewer, Micro Focus LoadRunner (formerly HP LoadRunner), Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Skype for Business (formerly Lync), Microsoft Office 2016,,20,Migration to Telecom Sector Automating business transaction end to end flow for BFSI Domain Automating Mainframe Applications,The Citrix-based application can be better handled by using the custom activity approach. Updated framework for easy migration,In Automation testing In creating Custom Framework Organizing Hackethrones to bring in more creativity,9UiPath-A Market Leader in RPAWe used UiPath to automate some of the insurance processes within our department on Legacy platform, the basic idea behind using the UiPath RPA is to automate the day to day policy servicing processes. We have deployed the solution internally and it has greatly helped the team to streamline processes. We have used RPA to automate various claims and underwriting processes. It allows user to reduce the turn around time taken by business users for processing claims and underwriting which in tern reduce time to market meaning scrutiny of claims, underwriting, payouts etc. It is highly flexible tool as it can support a lot of data types and have a lot of activities that work in the background.,UiPath provides free trial version of both Community and Enterprise edition. UiPath provides free tutorials and documentations UiPath provides a strong, active and very helpful official community platform for clarifying doubts, sharing issues etc and has assigned an official team for providing support for the community users through this platform. UiPath is an easy to learn and use tool with a great user interface. Unlike other leading RPA tools UiPath provides a great user interface so that a person with minimum technical knowledge can understand the flow UiPath provides large number of activities which we can reuse as per our need just by changing the properties and parameters It provides the flexibility to create custom activities as per users need. UiPath provides the flexibility to use unattended robot without need of Orchestrator. UiPath orchestrator component is a very powerful tool which if utilized effectively can make the robot management and monitoring very easy.,Sometimes it is difficult to find the objects locators using UiPath especially on Legacy Platforms. The licencing cost per user is higher when compared to other RPA tools available in market. Non availability of maximize option in Property edit box, argument value edit box is another flaw.,9,It reduces the time to market by automating the day to day business processes. Improved the speed of execution of process. The automated processes can be easily reused. It eliminates the human error where processes involves complex calculations, excel data consolidation etc. It also supports integrating with various tools which makes it highly flexible to use. User can record the processes which is also a important feature.,,Blue PrismEase of Use!My organization uses UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform to support both client needs and internal needs across the advisory department. The intent across the organization is to push RPA for tasks that are time-consuming but not overly complex. It allows resources to focus time on more complex tasks and mitigates the risk of user error in largely manual processes. Overall, it is being used to make teams operate more efficiently.,One benefit I've noticed is the training modules. These modules have provided users with a good base of knowledge to create bots without any prior experience. This has made it very user-friendly which can be a concern when it comes to RPA platforms. Another benefit is the re-usability of the platform. We have been able to share bots amongst teams to use for clients with similar needs/processes with slight modifications. Similarly, teams have shared bots they have used to improve internal processes, usually PMO related. UiPath is a good platform for improving overall efficiency with PMO activities. It is based on Microsoft SharePoint workflow which makes the interface more familiar and my team has been able to use it to confirm the accuracy of travel expenses and client invoicing.,UiPath can work to improve overall processing capabilities in terms of data. While I have not personally experienced it, other users within my company have had an issue in running a bot pulling information from multiple large data files. I believe UiPath is most likely working to improve this aspect.,10,UiPath has taken a process that would normally take 2 team members about 8 hours total and made it completely automated allowing us to focus resources on client deliverables.,Blue Prism,Blue Prism"Best RPA tool to start with" - UiPath RPAGone are the days when you have to deploy 100s of people for repeated tasks. We regularly update invoices of different channels and merchants to our workflow. Capturing each invoice requires some human attention. There are chances of using OCR or Text based extraction of invoices. We easily automate each type of invoice extraction to our Spreadsheet. This reduces 1 hour (Max 1.5 hr) of 100 employees in our organization.,Firstly, Web scraping - Data scraping became so easy after deploying Uipath. It provides various OCR engines to get through Scraping. Secondly, Excel Automation - It seems like UiPath studio is well suited for excel automation. Thirdly, Remote Controlling - using Orchestrator you can easily invoke remote robots so as to get your work done on remote machine and working on current machine.,We have deployed the technology since 6 mos. We are facing a major challenge in front of us. The invoice automation can only be done when the invoices are on website. Usually we fetch invoices from partner websites as PDF. Thus we are doing an extra work in scraping PDF. There is need of Screen Recording facility when performing robot activities. So that it is easy to debug when the robot gets stopped unexpectedly. When writing data to excel there should be an option to write the data one by one to excel file or inside a buffer table. Till now UiPath stores excel/table data first to a temporary table and then writes to excel/csv. There can be a case when you want to write the data directly to excel/csv. In other words, the data should be written real-time.,8,First Positive: Investing in RPA made our freelance workforce free. Thus we can now save cost of freelancers and give perks to our permanent employees. Second Negative: Our employees had to learn the technology which took us 1 month behind as the work force had to learn and train with UiPath academy. Third Positive: After deploying UiPath RPA, we can now also do extra work and keep our system free in mainstream business. Thus increasing efficiency. Once a robot is started on Virtual Machine, the main machine is free and can be used to achieve other business goals.,Selenium,Selenium, AntWorks ANTsteinUiPath will change the way how you thing about process improvmentsUiPath software is used mainly within McCormick Global Enablement structure to automate processes from HR/FINANCE/IT/TECHNICAL SERVICES/SOTC/PTP areas. We mainly automate processes which are rule-based, time-consuming and with low financial risk to build capacity for our employees who can focus on more strategic activities. We have a special RPA team which learned everything from the very beginning. 15 automations successfully automated!,UiPath Academy UiPath Community Friendly user UiPath layout Good Uipath support,Abby software should be provided, now you have to pay for tis advance OCR tool You need to have at least some programing skills, UiPath say at the beginning you do not need....,9,Drive innovation Better process discipline Another tool to improve processes,Celonis, Promapp, ASG-Remote Desktop and OneDrive,Promapp, OneDrive, MS SharePoint, SAP Business Warehouse, WinshuttleGreat softwareUiPath is used for multiple very different cases. We're using it to automate regression testing for example. It's easy to let a robot test a process like the end user would and validate that everything works. Another interesting usecase is transmitting data from a new system to an old system, during the implementation of the new system. The old system is still needed for a while, but we avoid users having to go through the process in both systems, by having a robot that collects the info and runs it through the old system.,Easy to implement, also with little coding experience. Users always get excited when they see a robot doing their 'boring' tasks. Tons and tons of options and features.,Upgrading to newer versions can be a challenge Customer support can be a hassle,10,People have more time to focus on more valuable tasks Scale up without having to hire more peopleUiPath, the best way into RPA!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.,9,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.,,Microsoft 365 Business, Oracle Application Container Cloud, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access ManagementUiPath brings the RPA FutureWe use UiPath in our company to automate various robotic processes for our partners. Most processes involve data migration between systems, reporting, sending multiple emails, reading PDFs with OCR, and extracting multiple structured site data. We set up an RPA team in our company to meet the demands of the partners.,Integration with PDF, Outlook, SAP, Google and Windows OCR Editing objects through page selectors Training courses,Argumentation ReFramework,10,Robots work fast Zero error Low maintenance cost,Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism and WorkFusion RPA Express,Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, WorkFusion RPA ExpressOne stop solution for RPA needsOur organization uses the tool mainly for Excel specific tasks which are repetitive in our department. We use UiPath to solve the following business problems: 1. Fetching website data to a local spreadsheet in one click. 2. Automatic feeding the local data to other websites for client management. 3. Fetching new prices from product specific sites.,Native Excel support makes it a unique RPA tool among all others. Data fetching from different websites using the scraping feature. No coding is required.,RE Framework requires more understanding. Some features like data scraping do not apply in every case where a websites changes/updates its HTML structure. UiPath does not have debugging in the robot feature.,8,Fast development and growth. No coding is required. The workload is distributed and easily handled.,WinAutomation, Automation Anywhere, Microsoft Office 2016, Google Analytics, Google Ads (formerly AdWords), Google Hangouts, Trello, Slack, EclipseUiPath Enterprise Platform Product ReviewCurrently, UiPath is being used by the Corporate office and some of the Business Units. Apart from the hardcoded benefits that RPA brings to the table like saving revenue, time and error-free processes, I believe UiPath has built a great environment among the employees by providing efficient RPA solutions. Also, enabling employees to work on what they feel challenged on, rather than doing the mundane monotonous tasks.,User-friendly interface. It is very easy to get UiPath expert. The only mantra is getting your hands dirty and you will be a guru of it in no time. I believe UiPath Academy is well organized to get you started with the RPA.,ReFramework was a bit confusing at first for me, but once I got my feet dirty in there and it's pretty useful in there. Excel Addins disappears while I use Excel application scope, but it works fine if I use start process/job. It would be great if this issue gets resolved.,9,Apart from the hardcoded benefits that RPA brings to the table like saving revenue, time and error-free processes, I believe UiPath has built a great environment among the employees by providing efficient RPA solutions.,WorkFusion RPA ExpressUiPath helping Business with Digital Workforce or BOTsRPA has become a game changer in our Engineering project deliveries by enabling us to deliver project well before the deadlines. RPA is used for Citrix automation, Recruiting, Project Management Invoice Preparation, AutoCAD 2D to 3D model conversion, Data Transfer between Project wise and Business Collaborator portal, Finance Invoice processing with OCR and many related tasks. The stakeholders were able to showcase the effectiveness of RPA in their annual report.,Citrix Data Entry and Validation Bulk file download and upload Invoice preparation by integrating with VBA Scripting Finance invoice processing with OCR,Artificial Intelligence and decision making capability for BOTs in the long run Automatic licence management between different tenants based on work load Being an industry leader, UiPath can focus on zero coding environment so that even people with no programming knowledge can use it,7,Immediate savings are visible and ROI can be achieved in the short-term itself Can scale up/down the BOTs easily, instead of recruiting/layoffs of employees The integration capability helps to bring end-to-end automation capability under a single roof with UiPath,Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism,Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, Jira Service Desk, Bentley ProjectWise,100,10,Data management Citrix Data Entry OCR Invoice processing,Front end attended bot for 3-layer secured design document download automation GoogleMaps automation for the transportation design team,Citrix automation with selectors,9,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Prior Experience with the Product Vendor Reputation Analyst Reports,nil,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a minor issue with the implementation,environment configuration same as development license management between tenants,9,No,During deploying of the BOTs to the Servers, UiPath staff came to our office along with online assistance of support team, the deployment and migration was seamless.,9,data entry ocr reading downloading,front end process,Yes,9The tool that brought a new context to the RPA world!My first contact with the tool was very pleasant. It was very intuitive and easy to use and I was surprised and delighted with the speed and intelligence behind the web recording and Data Scrapping tool. The company provides great training and the community is very active, great for anyone who is entering the market as it helps you feel comfortable to create anything.,I liked the Step-Recording tool, very intuitive. I liked the workflow. I liked REFramework, it helps a lot in controlling logs. I liked the drag-and-drop interface, extremely simple and fast to use!,The reading part of the PDF needs to be reviewed and the use of variables updated. The PDF reader should be reviewed. It has many bugs when trying to scan a PDF to the internet.,9,Helped the company become more competitive. We have tasks being carried out 24 hours a day.,Automation Anywhere,Automation AnywhereRPA UiPATH reviewUiPath is used as an RPA tool in our organization. UiPath used to automate the web, desktop, all Windows and Citrix applications and also for mailing automation, API automation etc. UiPath used to automate end to end process. We can replace human activities with a robot. We can schedule the processes to initiate the execution without manual interruption. Fast-paced automation processes can be achieved through this UiPATH tool. Those who are not having programming skills can easily adopt this tool.,Suppose we need to fetch data from a web application and process the data to generate report and mailing, all these activities are done very simple and effective way. In-build framework helps for easy implementation. Tools - is an intelligent automation tool. It helps in fetching data from multiple pages without any coding.,It cannot handle large processes. Code implementation is hard to get for new things. Slow execution.,9,Good, since it's open source and fast-paced implementation. Sometimes execution slowness reduces the efficiency of the tool. It massively reduces manual work.,Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere, Pega RPAUiPath experience with several implementationsUiPath is used to automate the Process of Insurance as we are working with an Insurance client. Also it is used to create a repository which can be used in the future as a small system which can work automatically as on one click. It is used by the IT department of our organization and also made usable for our operational team as they require some small tasks which they can run and their work is completed, Business problems such as proposal creation, claim processing, as well as refund initiation are solved and automated. It also helps individuals for growing logical thinking power by implementing with it.,Easy to learn and easy to use Strong UI Explorer feature Universal search feature Easy activity creation for process automation,Hanging issue of AI while implementing Slow startup of application No Validation is displayed in the application as if the user starts the app from system startup instead of double-clicking application setup.,9,It allows new projects to be introduced in the organization. It is very easy to use as less coding knowledge is required and more business can be gained.,,Bugzilla, Selenium, CrossBrowserTesting, Mobility Portal, TeamViewer,Ui Explorer Activity creation Steps recording Screen scrapping Debugging featureOur RPA automations using Ui PathWe are using UiPath for handling manual activities in our organization. It has saved us a lot of time and cost. We are doing web portal automation, windows softwares like Quickbooks, CRM and ERP softwares. Our main goal is to automate whatever we can through this Automation tool. It is really helpful for RPA automation, data scraping and for citrix environments.,UiPath handles a lot of problems we are facing in Citrix environment like windows keys and commands. It is easy to read the text from Image, PDF using OCR engines like Google, Microsoft and results are accurate. We can also add our own DLL or NuGet packages in UiPath. For Web scraping, UiPath is the best solution. It gives you the result in few seconds.,They could implement a find option in the workflow. It is very difficult to find the activities in the flowchart or sequence. Debugging, takes too much time. They could implement it how visual studio does it currently. If we put a break point, it should stop at that point. No need to show the process. Add option for adding own line of code inside a sequence.,10,It saves lots of money. Using UiPath, we can provide automation solution to any kind of problem. It saves us ton of time.,Winworks AutoShop,AutomationEdge, Selenium, Kanban ToolAn Intuitive toolWe use UiPath as a timesaver for "swivel chair" operations. We had a lot of manual work where we extract data from a system and put it into Excel and transform the data. Now, a robot takes care of that. After UiPath proved its value at reading data from applications and we had built up our trust in the tool, we started to make robots that could also put data into the systems. This had major benefits in terms of time savings and quality of data, but also the mood of our employees was an important factor.,Ease of use. It's very intuitive to use, so pretty much anyone can automate their own process (as long as it is relatively simple). Fast. You can have a flow running in a day. The predefined activities make it easy to drag and drop building blocks for a process. Just set the parameters and you're good to go. The academy is free which gives you the opportunity to check it out and get comfortable with it without having to spend a lot of money. The community really helps. Most questions you have are already answered (and if not, support is excellent). Support generally answers within a day and keeps checking up with you to make sure a solution was reached.,Even though it is easy to use, programming a robot that can be used by different persons requires a lot more skills. It is not as easy as they make it seem Getting to know UiPath with the Robot/Studio/Orchestrator components can be quite complicated and challenging. Fortunately there is the academy, but still not easy The different license models are not clear.,8,Efficieny gains: A robot often does it faster. This resulted in a more accurate planning. Quality of data: a robot makes less mistakes. Mood: Employees have to do fewer annoying tasks.UiPath is the present and future of RPAWe currently use the tool to sell solutions to internal customers. Most of the work that we automated is the migration of data between systems, automation of emails, extraction of data of pdf with OCR, among others. The gain has been perceptible from the first moment, as human errors have been noticeably reduced to almost zero. Another good point for us is that we can leave the robot working as long as we want.,Ease of use The interface is user-friendly. The implementation and editing of selectors make the tool extremely powerful. Courses at UiPath Academy make learning very easy and fast. The Orchestrator course is really good.,The documentation of Re-Framework is very confusing.,9,Reduced human error. Robots can work as long as we want.,Automation Anywhere, IBM Robotic Process Automation with Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism,Automation Anywhere, IBM Robotic Process Automation with Automation Anywhere, Blue PrismA simple and very effective RPA platformWe're using UiPath to automate data entry processes and copy-pasting between different desktop apps and web apps. Before UiPath we could never automate these tasks because these are legacy apps with poor support for any kind of integrations (no API, web services, import/export). With UiPath it was very easy and straight forward.,UiPath user interface is very intuitive and user-friendly. UiPath Academy provides lots of great training courses and training material. There's good support for developers to help with coding mode advanced automation processes.,Our developers faced some application slowness while developing a very complex process with dozens of mxml files. This was only during development though, the actual automation execution is running very smoothly.,9,We've reduced the data entry team headcount from 10 to 1. We've reduced the average process duration from 10 minutes to 30 seconds. We've dramatically decreased the error rates.,,Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), MessageBird Voice, Microsoft SQL ServerUNICORN in RPAIt is used across the organization and is helping us to automate mundane tasks and weekly reports. We have integrated it with ServiceNow. We have also automated a couple of manual browser operations and health checks for our website. The weekly reports are automatically generated and shared over email. This has really helped employees to engage in other quality work.,Browser Automation. Beats Selenium in this. Drag and drop makes it fun and easy to understand. The community is really helpful. Endless possibilities with cognitive introduction and Standford NLP. Easy to manipulate and understand the selector concept.,Plug and play for IT reports, employee task management. Creating more job opportunities in every segment of the product. Engaging more complex systems and scalability.,10,Increased productivity. Saving 100 hours of manual operation monthly. Increased billing by 1000 CAD for current processes. Negative people have become lazy.,Automation Anywhere,Automation AnywhereThe most user-friendly RPA ToolBeing an IT consulting organization we help our clients by implementing automation using UiPath in their core business processes. We have a Centre of Excellence Team who are spread out across the organization. We automate in all business areas whether it may be banking, insurance domain, manufacturing, or telecommunications, etc.,User-friendly tool to implement automation. Free learning platform with detailed material helps an organization to get trained and find developers easily. Regular upgrades with new features released almost every quarter. The best community forum where someone can post and get answers for most of their queries.,Few legacy applications are still not supported for automation. But UiPath recently announced some activities with which legacy systems can also be well automated. No inbuilt chat functionality among the other developers of the team. No inbuilt error reporting feature. A support ticket should be raised manually.,9,Employee effectiveness has improved a lot. Instead of doing the same repetitive process each and every day, no SMEs can work on something challenging. Most of the clients are happy and it has given more business because of the performance of UiPath automation in their core businesses. Cost cutting and reduction in human errors are the other benefits attained.,MS SharePoint, IBM Notes, ServiceNowUiPath: one of the best RPA tools of 2019At the company, we develop robotic solutions for other companies (or clients). We automate the process in order to deliver efficiency and speed in departments such as HR, Taxes, etc. There's a whole team that develops robotic solutions with UiPath for each client. The UiPath platform enables us to address any kind of problem within a company. From the tax process, work certificates, or even call center optimization.,Various options to automate Citrix applications. Intuitive user interface to develop and design the solution. Three different ways to design the workflow allows us to get a better design. UI browser and intuitive editable selectors allow the developer to fine tune the robot for better automation. A wide range of third-party packages and a very warm community to support and solve most doubts. Impressive interaction between workflow files.,The user interface is very intuitive, but could be more effective if the design allows a better view of the large and complex workflows Cross-platform support, not only Windows users but Unix user as well. They can be more orginal in the layout of the Studio app. Feels like a Office app for RPA Orchestrator for Community Edition users works very slowly and not that fluent as expected,10,The learning curve for new developers is impressive. A new user can achieve advanced things within weeks. The academy and documentation sites allow us to train new developers for the action very quickly The UiPath framework allows us to build better projects. Some clients have decided to use UiPath trough us on every automation project. When is not well learned, UiPath can be a mess. Some developers have serious delays on projects because they have not trained properly.,Pega RPA,Microsoft Office 365, Slack, G SuiteEasy to learn and use, and full of creativity and passion to create great thingsWe have a new department that is starting the automation of some business process, as we are a third-party company for several clients. We are working mostly with the handling of exceptions and posting payments in a billing software for health charges, and this software is completely worked through remote desktop. So this is a virtual environment and we cannot work with all the activities that UIPath offers. The business problems we address is the reliability and also quality for the process we handle, a robot is more accurate and easy to test and keep track of its productivity rather than a human agent. As we work completely via remote desktop, we need to use the OCR and image recognition assets. Fortunately in the last versions and packages of UIPath they have improved the way to work in such environments. Now our capacity to work with this has increased by far, and we can pay attention to other processes that are sure to be automated in the near future. No doubt this software for RPA is currently one of the best. We plan to make a bigger group of bot developers to create even more solutions for our clients.,Excellent management of project files and dependencies Easy integration with .Net technologies, also you can include new activities and features through the Package manager, that use all the power of NuGet Large set of activities that allow you to build the bots for a lot of scenarios and use cases. The limit is your imagination. Easy deployment of the projects and bots, locally or remotely through Orchestrator platform Easy coding and programming by the use of a quite friendly language: VB.net,They have to improve the way of how to show error message to the developer, I mean in which file is the error and also, offer suggestions in case that you declare a wrong type of variable or if you are missing something else. For Citrix/Remote desktop environments they have to improve the recognition of some elements in the remote screen, the added a new package to do this but is still in beta version and need several adjustments. It would be awesome if we might choose the language we want to use to code the activities, because even when VB.net is easy, is not the most popular language, rather, C# is currently one of the most famous,10,We can process a greater number of batches and posting payments, almost +300 per hour, and if we implement more robots it could be +600 per hour. As we work with remote desktop environment, there is always a delay while the bot is doing the tasks, so it's a bit slower than do the same job with human agents. With the bot implementation you can prepare the agents to assist them and help them.,AutomationNG and Jenkins,Microsoft Azure, Microsoft BI, Microsoft 365 BusinessUiPath - Best RPA choice for beginners and expertsHere in my organization we use UiPath for robotic manual and repetitive processes in order to gain performance, speed and accuracy in the results of these processes. We have a specialized team focused on delivering RPA projects (using the UiPath tool). The focus of these projects are manual and repetitive rules-based processes.,Easy integration with other applications Free On-line academy Easy-to-learn Free Community Edition,UiPath has Orchestrator to manage robots but it's not worth it when we consider a project with less than 50 robots. Lack of documents about how to create Custom Activities. It would be great to have some detailed information. Today we have just the basics, so if you don't have experience it can be very hard to develop. It will be great to implement AI features in the future.,10,Best process performance, accuracy and low effort FTE reduction is the main positive impact of implemeting RPA with UiPath Robots "working" 24/7Best RPA Tool for Stable ProcessesAs EY(Ernst and Young ) is a big four organization, Uipath is a very crucial RPA tool used in EY across Globe to provide highly stable, efficient RPA BOTs to clients. In EY GDS until now, we have created approx 850 BOTs in a time span of 3 Years. It is being used by all departments like Tax, audit, and advisory etc. It helps in automating approximately all business process with different domains like FS, non-FS, oil and gas, health sectors, tax etc.,Computer Vision: Latest CV activity enables efficient Citrix automation. Custom Activities: UiPath is very close to .net and C# languages and helps to expand the functionality by writing custom codes for actions which are not supported by UiPath Heaven for developers of a C#, Java, dot net background. Ease of development and BOT implementation. Awesome UiPath support team always help you whenever you are in a difficult situation.,Not very great PDF activities. Debugging and testing is not up to the mark as provided by other RPA vendors Code sometimes becomes very large as each activity occupies some space on your computer screen. So it is difficult to look at the whole code in a single view. Another too,l like (AA), is good at that.,10,ROI can be increased if the process is analyzed in a good manner. An RPA tool like UiPath cannot help if the requirement is not gathered properly.,Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism,Automation Anywhere, Blue PrismUiPath has the best training courses and the best learning curveI am automating validation of work items between BPOpen and SAP. Avoiding too much manual labor on the part of the user, freeing the time gained for more analytical and less repetitive work. UiPath is being used on the RPA Factory for meeting the needs of internal customers and providing financial savings by reducing the hours needed to carry out a specific tax process. In addition to avoiding possible human error.,Very easy to use, great learning curve. The UiPath academy is possibly the best portal to learn among other tools. Speed ​​to start produced verified results. Excellent orchestrator for managing robots and logs. Best OCR is available on the market, including Citrix automation.,I miss a functionality similar to the "immediate window" of Visual Studio. The Immediate window is used to debug and evaluate expressions, execute statements, and print variable values. The Immediate window evaluates expressions by building and using the currently selected project. Adapting the automation to new versions of the product can be challenging. It's not the most cost-friendly tool in the market.,10,The customers were happy with the low maintenance and rework rate required. Reduced time to perform certain tasks compared to competitors. Full-time employee reduction.,Automation Anywhere,Automation Anywhere, Microsoft Visual Studio Code, Microsoft SQL Server, JIRA Software

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "UiPath is a Major Upgrade in Automation and Digital Transformation"

We mainly worked on Web Automation for US-based Clients in Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) Domain, which involves automating end to end processes based on functional requirements using Agile Best Practices.

Technically, it involves Excel Automation in terms of reading the details of users having loads of data around 2-3 lakhs records per process.

These are further processed after login into the application using integrated securities and Client Level authentication.

At the end of the process sending the automated emails to the stakeholders informing about the insights above the transactions and errors that occurred using an unattended bot for the whole process.

The handiest aspect when learning and implementing UiPath, it is less programming when compared to other software tools which require firstly programming concepts then one needs to have tool familiarity.
UiPath has now introduced Source and Version control capabilities using GitHub and NuGet by Microsoft Corporation which gives us more control for the overall maintenance of repositories and workflows providing Continous Integration and Continous Deployment.
  • It provides more control while dealing with Web Applications, Desktop Applications, VDI and Image-Based Automation on Citrix.
  • Can be extended its scope on Mainframe Automation.
  • GitHub Integration in order to maintain different repositories for different process.
  • Implementing image-based automation is quite challenging especially when you are working on the Client network using VDI.
  • There can be many more activities that need to be provided so it can be further enhanced.
  • If not possible to give the activities, then at least provide some paid activities like Abby OCR when it comes to the Optical Character Recognition.
  • They have recently rolled out a course which is having contents for automating salesforce application, but no automation is required when you use sales force for development.
  • Extension to Linux based Applications.
  • Security can be further enhanced by providing different activities rather than basic Typesecurestring in order to control logging at the verbose level.
It is well suited for web-based application automation which involves structured and unstructured data. It provides GitHub integration for maintaining different repositories for different processes, as well as NuGet package integration for managing dependencies. The scope is extended to implement mainframe automation which is quite secure in terms of managing data and bank related operations. It did well with controlled robots in terms of unattended and attended bots by using state machines and orchestrator. We appreciated the ability to trigger different processes by using the orchestrator app. It was found to be less appropriate when we wanted to run a process for fewer times. Since this is a paid tool it does not bring value when implemented for a process that is not recurring, the reason being there are other free open source tools that can do that job which will cost less money.

We used UiPath to automate some of the insurance processes within our department on Legacy platform, the basic idea behind using the UiPath RPA is to automate the day to day policy servicing processes. We have deployed the solution internally and it has greatly helped the team to streamline processes. We have used RPA to automate various claims and underwriting processes. It allows user to reduce the turn around time taken by business users for processing claims and underwriting which in tern reduce time to market meaning scrutiny of claims, underwriting, payouts etc. It is highly flexible tool as it can support a lot of data types and have a
lot of activities that work in the background.
  • UiPath provides free trial version of both Community and Enterprise edition. UiPath provides free tutorials and documentations
  • UiPath provides a strong, active and very helpful official community platform for clarifying doubts, sharing issues etc and has assigned an official team for providing support for the community users through this platform.
  • UiPath is an easy to learn and use tool with a great user interface.
  • Unlike other leading RPA tools UiPath provides a great user interface so that a person with minimum technical knowledge can understand the flow
  • UiPath provides large number of activities which we can reuse as per our need just by changing the properties and parameters
  • It provides the flexibility to create custom activities as per users need.
  • UiPath provides the flexibility to use unattended robot without need of Orchestrator.
  • UiPath orchestrator component is a very powerful tool which if utilized effectively can make the robot management and monitoring very easy.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to find the objects locators using UiPath especially on Legacy Platforms.
  • The licencing cost per user is higher when compared to other RPA tools available in market.
  • Non availability of maximize option in Property edit box, argument value edit box is another flaw.
It can very well be suited to automate the recursive business processes. It eliminates human errors - the manual actions performed during processing of daily activities. Development was easy with UiPath with the numerous
inbuilt activities and support for custom activities.
We have tried automating insurance processes for our internal stakeholders and the result and feedback received was awesome. We have automated processes for claims processing where we have validated various excel formulas to calculate correct the payouts. The best part is we can reuse the automated processes.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "Ease of Use!"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

My organization uses UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform to support both client needs and internal needs across the advisory department. The intent across the organization is to push RPA for tasks that are time-consuming but not overly complex. It allows resources to focus time on more complex tasks and mitigates the risk of user error in largely manual processes. Overall, it is being used to make teams operate more efficiently.
  • One benefit I've noticed is the training modules. These modules have provided users with a good base of knowledge to create bots without any prior experience. This has made it very user-friendly which can be a concern when it comes to RPA platforms.
  • Another benefit is the re-usability of the platform. We have been able to share bots amongst teams to use for clients with similar needs/processes with slight modifications. Similarly, teams have shared bots they have used to improve internal processes, usually PMO related.
  • UiPath is a good platform for improving overall efficiency with PMO activities. It is based on Microsoft SharePoint workflow which makes the interface more familiar and my team has been able to use it to confirm the accuracy of travel expenses and client invoicing.
  • UiPath can work to improve overall processing capabilities in terms of data. While I have not personally experienced it, other users within my company have had an issue in running a bot pulling information from multiple large data files. I believe UiPath is most likely working to improve this aspect.
UiPath is best suited for processes that are largely manual in nature and can be very time-consuming. My company has focused primarily on processes that are not too complex in nature but this is not necessarily a stipulation. My team uses it to ensure the accuracy of the invoices we send to clients. It is very important that our invoices are accurate and can be very time-consuming to ensure it's correct. There are a lot of PMO activities that can fall into this category. Additionally, we have used UiPath to help with compliance control testing to ensure clients are in compliance with SOX 404 standards.

Gone are the days when you have to deploy 100s of people for repeated tasks. We regularly update invoices of different channels and merchants to our workflow. Capturing each invoice requires some human attention. There are chances of using OCR or Text based extraction of invoices. We easily automate each type of invoice extraction to our Spreadsheet. This reduces 1 hour (Max 1.5 hr) of 100 employees in our organization.
  • Firstly, Web scraping - Data scraping became so easy after deploying Uipath. It provides various OCR engines to get through Scraping.
  • Secondly, Excel Automation - It seems like UiPath studio is well suited for excel automation.
  • Thirdly, Remote Controlling - using Orchestrator you can easily invoke remote robots so as to get your work done on remote machine and working on current machine.
  • We have deployed the technology since 6 mos. We are facing a major challenge in front of us. The invoice automation can only be done when the invoices are on website. Usually we fetch invoices from partner websites as PDF. Thus we are doing an extra work in scraping PDF.
  • There is need of Screen Recording facility when performing robot activities. So that it is easy to debug when the robot gets stopped unexpectedly.
  • When writing data to excel there should be an option to write the data one by one to excel file or inside a buffer table. Till now UiPath stores excel/table data first to a temporary table and then writes to excel/csv. There can be a case when you want to write the data directly to excel/csv. In other words, the data should be written real-time.
Well Suited - We majorly use UiPath for invoice-automation. We daily deal with 1000s of invoices from different channels and Stock Keeping Units. All the invoices are stored in excel from various sources. Thus we try to automate all the sources of data for us so as to club all the channles to a CSV or Excel file. All the channles have different Excel data thus we have to merge all of them. The process workflow looks like:
Fetching data from various sources/channels > Writing to CSVs > Merging daily CSVs > Getting Insights and analytics

UiPath software is used mainly within McCormick Global Enablement structure to automate processes from HR/FINANCE/IT/TECHNICAL SERVICES/SOTC/PTP areas. We mainly automate processes which are rule-based, time-consuming and with low financial risk to build capacity for our employees who can focus on more strategic activities. We have a special RPA team which learned everything from the very beginning. 15 automations successfully automated!
  • UiPath Academy
  • UiPath Community
  • Friendly user UiPath layout
  • Good Uipath support
  • Abby software should be provided, now you have to pay for tis advance OCR tool
  • You need to have at least some programing skills, UiPath say at the beginning you do not need....
Best for standardized, rule-based processes which not required a human decision. The process should have not a lot exceptions otherwise it is hard to capture all options. If the process will change within months or a year it is not a good candidate to be automated.

UiPath is used for multiple very different cases. We're using it to automate regression testing for example. It's easy to let a robot test a process like the end user would and validate that everything works. Another interesting usecase is transmitting data from a new system to an old system, during the implementation of the new system. The old system is still needed for a while, but we avoid users having to go through the process in both systems, by having a robot that collects the info and runs it through the old system.
  • Easy to implement, also with little coding experience.
  • Users always get excited when they see a robot doing their 'boring' tasks.
  • Tons and tons of options and features.
  • Upgrading to newer versions can be a challenge
  • Customer support can be a hassle
It's great for automating easy, repetitive tasks which take up time. That's where the most value lies. We've also used it for (regression) testing, preparing data for educational purposes, etc.

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.

We use UiPath in our company to automate various robotic processes for our partners. Most processes involve data migration between systems, reporting, sending multiple emails, reading PDFs with OCR, and extracting multiple structured site data. We set up an RPA team in our company to meet the demands of the partners.
  • Integration with PDF, Outlook, SAP, Google and Windows OCR
  • Editing objects through page selectors
  • Training courses
  • Argumentation
  • ReFramework
UiPath is suitable for automation of emails, extraction of data of sites, extraction of data from PDFs for migration, and extraction of Citrix environments. Not recommended for processes that require many user interactions and are not repetitive.

Our organization uses the tool mainly for Excel specific tasks which are repetitive in our department. We use UiPath to solve the following business problems:
1. Fetching website data to a local spreadsheet in one click.
2. Automatic feeding the local data to other websites for client management.
3. Fetching new prices from product specific sites.
  • Native Excel support makes it a unique RPA tool among all others.
  • Data fetching from different websites using the scraping feature.
  • No coding is required.
  • RE Framework requires more understanding.
  • Some features like data scraping do not apply in every case where a websites changes/updates its HTML structure.
  • UiPath does not have debugging in the robot feature.
Well suited for mundane office tasks like mass email messages, data storing from websites and many more
Not well suited for where websites changes/updates their structure on a regular basis.

Currently, UiPath is being used by the Corporate office and some of the Business Units. Apart from the hardcoded benefits that RPA brings to the table like saving revenue, time and error-free processes, I believe UiPath has built a great environment among the employees by providing efficient RPA solutions. Also, enabling employees to work on what they feel challenged on, rather than doing the mundane monotonous tasks.
  • User-friendly interface. It is very easy to get UiPath expert. The only mantra is getting your hands dirty and you will be a guru of it in no time.
  • I believe UiPath Academy is well organized to get you started with the RPA.
  • ReFramework was a bit confusing at first for me, but once I got my feet dirty in there and it's pretty useful in there.
  • Excel Addins disappears while I use Excel application scope, but it works fine if I use start process/job. It would be great if this issue gets resolved.
UiPath is very well suited for automating the monotonous manual task. Also, the UiPath community and the slack channel is very responsive and you get the response quickly. Not to forget the newly introduced UiPath go platform this year, which is a repository of solutions, snippets and custom activities. Scenarios which needs user inputs to complete the task might be a bit difficult with UiPath. Also integrating AI is not in the current capability, but is being introduced in Q3. Thus will have to play around with that to say anything about it.

RPA has become a game changer in our Engineering project deliveries by enabling us to deliver project well before the deadlines. RPA is used for Citrix automation, Recruiting, Project Management Invoice Preparation, AutoCAD 2D to 3D model conversion, Data Transfer between Project wise and Business Collaborator portal, Finance Invoice processing with OCR and many related tasks. The stakeholders were able to showcase the effectiveness of RPA in their annual report.


  • Citrix Data Entry and Validation
  • Bulk file download and upload
  • Invoice preparation by integrating with VBA Scripting
  • Finance invoice processing with OCR
  • Artificial Intelligence and decision making capability for BOTs in the long run
  • Automatic licence management between different tenants based on work load
  • Being an industry leader, UiPath can focus on zero coding environment so that even people with no programming knowledge can use it
UiPath is best suited for any rule-based mundane repetitive tasks, where human intelligence is not required. It is not a good solution where human interaction is frequently required or high-level decision making is required. Also, if the process is highly secure, based on the challenges full/partial automations can be suggested, in which human-BOT collaboration can be the best solution.

My first contact with the tool was very pleasant. It was very intuitive and easy to use and I was surprised and delighted with the speed and intelligence behind the web recording and Data Scrapping tool. The company provides great training and the community is very active, great for anyone who is entering the market as it helps you feel comfortable to create anything.
  • I liked the Step-Recording tool, very intuitive.
  • I liked the workflow.
  • I liked REFramework, it helps a lot in controlling logs.
  • I liked the drag-and-drop interface, extremely simple and fast to use!
  • The reading part of the PDF needs to be reviewed and the use of variables updated.
  • The PDF reader should be reviewed. It has many bugs when trying to scan a PDF to the internet.
UiPath is perfect for carrying out price quotation on the internet with the Data Scrapping tool as it is very simple and easy to use. The simulated click option is very useful. Queues are also very simple to create for use on large scale tasks.

UiPath is used as an RPA tool in our organization. UiPath used to automate the web, desktop, all Windows and Citrix applications and also for mailing automation, API automation etc. UiPath used to automate end to end process. We can replace human activities with a robot. We can schedule the processes to initiate the execution without manual interruption. Fast-paced automation processes can be achieved through this UiPATH tool. Those who are not having programming skills can easily adopt this tool.




  • Suppose we need to fetch data from a web application and process the data to generate report and mailing, all these activities are done very simple and effective way.
  • In-build framework helps for easy implementation.
  • Tools - is an intelligent automation tool. It helps in fetching data from multiple pages without any coding.
  • It cannot handle large processes.
  • Code implementation is hard to get for new things.
  • Slow execution.
Quick Automation implementation is possible through UiPath. List of activities are built in, so you can use them to create scenarios or use a ready-made one. Orchestrator is used to manage tasks in a user-friendly way. Having a list of activities like Excel, mail, web, Windows, and Citirix can be implemented with UiPath.

UiPath is used to automate the Process of Insurance as we are working with an Insurance client. Also it is used to create a repository which can be used in the future as a small system which can work automatically as on one click. It is used by the IT department of our organization and also made usable for our operational team as they require some small tasks which they can run and their work is completed, Business problems such as proposal creation, claim processing, as well as refund initiation are solved and automated. It also helps individuals for growing logical thinking power by implementing with it.
  • Easy to learn and easy to use
  • Strong UI Explorer feature
  • Universal search feature
  • Easy activity creation for process automation
  • Hanging issue of AI while implementing
  • Slow startup of application
  • No Validation is displayed in the application as if the user starts the app from system startup instead of double-clicking application setup.
It is easy to learn and use, also it is very easy to implement over cloud. As it is available in a Community version, it is very useful for individual to learn and implement their own technologies. Also great support is available in the community forum. Right for automation and simplifying everyday workflow process. It can be also useful in short process improvement.

We are using UiPath for handling manual activities in our organization. It has saved us a lot of time and cost. We are doing web portal automation, windows softwares like Quickbooks, CRM and ERP softwares. Our main goal is to automate whatever we can through this Automation tool. It is really helpful for RPA automation, data scraping and for citrix environments.
  • UiPath handles a lot of problems we are facing in Citrix environment like windows keys and commands.
  • It is easy to read the text from Image, PDF using OCR engines like Google, Microsoft and results are accurate.
  • We can also add our own DLL or NuGet packages in UiPath.
  • For Web scraping, UiPath is the best solution. It gives you the result in few seconds.
  • They could implement a find option in the workflow. It is very difficult to find the activities in the flowchart or sequence.
  • Debugging, takes too much time. They could implement it how visual studio does it currently. If we put a break point, it should stop at that point. No need to show the process.
  • Add option for adding own line of code inside a sequence.
It is well suited for all kinds of data scraping, web scraping, web automation and automations in billing, CRM and ERP softwares.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "An Intuitive tool"

We use UiPath as a timesaver for "swivel chair" operations. We had a lot of manual work where we extract data from a system and put it into Excel and transform the data. Now, a robot takes care of that.

After UiPath proved its value at reading data from applications and we had built up our trust in the tool, we started to make robots that could also put data into the systems. This had major benefits in terms of time savings and quality of data, but also the mood of our employees was an important factor.
  • Ease of use. It's very intuitive to use, so pretty much anyone can automate their own process (as long as it is relatively simple).
  • Fast. You can have a flow running in a day.
  • The predefined activities make it easy to drag and drop building blocks for a process. Just set the parameters and you're good to go.
  • The academy is free which gives you the opportunity to check it out and get comfortable with it without having to spend a lot of money.
  • The community really helps. Most questions you have are already answered (and if not, support is excellent).
  • Support generally answers within a day and keeps checking up with you to make sure a solution was reached.
  • Even though it is easy to use, programming a robot that can be used by different persons requires a lot more skills. It is not as easy as they make it seem
  • Getting to know UiPath with the Robot/Studio/Orchestrator components can be quite complicated and challenging. Fortunately there is the academy, but still not easy
  • The different license models are not clear.

The most obvious problems are the 'swivel chair' operations where data from one system needs to be inputted in another. Other uses cases include building Excel tools based on data from systems and transforming data from one format to another (financial).

An interesting case was where our company had contracts with customers. The customers would then make orders based on that contract. However, often there were errors where the order had different data compared to the contract (e.g. different pricing, transportation). Those orders have to be adapted to the contract as soon as possible. A robot currently takes care of that instead of an employee that had to check regularly for wrong orders.

We currently use the tool to sell solutions to internal customers. Most of the work that we automated is the migration of data between systems, automation of emails, extraction of data of pdf with OCR, among others. The gain has been perceptible from the first moment, as human errors have been noticeably reduced to almost zero. Another good point for us is that we can leave the robot working as long as we want.
  • Ease of use
  • The interface is user-friendly.
  • The implementation and editing of selectors make the tool extremely powerful.
  • Courses at UiPath Academy make learning very easy and fast.
  • The Orchestrator course is really good.
  • The documentation of Re-Framework is very confusing.
UiPath, like any other RPA tool, is intended for the automation of repetitive processes with well-defined standards. It has good communication with Emails, PDFs, Office, Google and Microsoft OCR, and some other tools as well as .NET. Not recommended for confusing processes with lots of user interaction. Processes that require some level of cognition are not recommended to use UiPath.

We're using UiPath to automate data entry processes and copy-pasting between different desktop apps and web apps. Before UiPath we could never automate these tasks because these are legacy apps with poor support for any kind of integrations (no API, web services, import/export). With UiPath it was very easy and straight forward.
  • UiPath user interface is very intuitive and user-friendly.
  • UiPath Academy provides lots of great training courses and training material.
  • There's good support for developers to help with coding mode advanced automation processes.
  • Our developers faced some application slowness while developing a very complex process with dozens of mxml files. This was only during development though, the actual automation execution is running very smoothly.
Data entry and data copying between legacy apps with poor integration support is where UiPath excels. There's a very high return opportunity here because you'll end up both reducing headcount and process execution duration. For tasks where human judgment and intuition is key, UiPath won't be much of a help.

It is used across the organization and is helping us to automate mundane tasks and weekly reports. We have integrated it with ServiceNow. We have also automated a couple of manual browser operations and health checks for our website. The weekly reports are automatically generated and shared over email. This has really helped employees to engage in other quality work.
  • Browser Automation. Beats Selenium in this.
  • Drag and drop makes it fun and easy to understand. The community is really helpful.
  • Endless possibilities with cognitive introduction and Standford NLP.
  • Easy to manipulate and understand the selector concept.
  • Plug and play for IT reports, employee task management.
  • Creating more job opportunities in every segment of the product.
  • Engaging more complex systems and scalability.
Well suited for big clients who can afford this to easily improve processes. Everyone can be trained in this tool, hence less dependency across various projects. They could Introduce small packages for mid-level companies/government organizations.

Being an IT consulting organization we help our clients by implementing automation using UiPath in their core business processes. We have a Centre of Excellence Team who are spread out across the organization. We automate in all business areas whether it may be banking, insurance domain, manufacturing, or telecommunications, etc.
  • User-friendly tool to implement automation.
  • Free learning platform with detailed material helps an organization to get trained and find developers easily.
  • Regular upgrades with new features released almost every quarter.
  • The best community forum where someone can post and get answers for most of their queries.
  • Few legacy applications are still not supported for automation. But UiPath recently announced some activities with which legacy systems can also be well automated.
  • No inbuilt chat functionality among the other developers of the team.
  • No inbuilt error reporting feature. A support ticket should be raised manually.
UiPath is well suited for automating almost all the web applications. Human-like recognition selectors keep this tool ahead of other RPA tools on the market. As there is a free version of this, tool developers can easily learn and get completely hands-on before accepting a project. The only scenario where I felt UiPath still needs improvements is in automating Siebel 7.8 CRM. This looks like a web application, but in fact, it is not. It works on IE but uses Siebel DLLS.

We automate the process in order to deliver efficiency and speed in departments such as HR, Taxes, etc. There's a whole team that develops robotic solutions with UiPath for each client. The UiPath platform enables us to address any kind of problem within a company. From the tax process, work certificates, or even call center optimization.
  • Various options to automate Citrix applications.
  • Intuitive user interface to develop and design the solution. Three different ways to design the workflow allows us to get a better design.
  • UI browser and intuitive editable selectors allow the developer to fine tune the robot for better automation.
  • A wide range of third-party packages and a very warm community to support and solve most doubts.
  • Impressive interaction between workflow files.
  • The user interface is very intuitive, but could be more effective if the design allows a better view of the large and complex workflows
  • Cross-platform support, not only Windows users but Unix user as well.
  • They can be more orginal in the layout of the Studio app. Feels like a Office app for RPA
  • Orchestrator for Community Edition users works very slowly and not that fluent as expected
In the RPA environment, UiPath is such a powerful tool. Allows for web apps, desktop apps, and virtual apps to be automated in any possible way. There's a lot of support and documentation as well. For "background" business processes UiPath works perfectly. However, if we decide to use it as a RDA tool, it could lack some features like Window Design and interactions.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "Easy to learn and use, and full of creativity and passion to create great things"

We have a new department that is starting the automation of some business process, as we are a third-party company for several clients. We are working mostly with the handling of exceptions and posting payments in a billing software for health charges, and this software is completely worked through remote desktop. So this is a virtual environment and we cannot work with all the activities that UIPath offers. The business problems we address is the reliability and also quality for the process we handle, a robot is more accurate and easy to test and keep track of its productivity rather than a human agent. As we work completely via remote desktop, we need to use the OCR and image recognition assets. Fortunately in the last versions and packages of UIPath they have improved the way to work in such environments. Now our capacity to work with this has increased by far, and we can pay attention to other processes that are sure to be automated in the near future. No doubt this software for RPA is currently one of the best. We plan to make a bigger group of bot developers to create even more solutions for our clients.
  • Excellent management of project files and dependencies
  • Easy integration with .Net technologies, also you can include new activities and features through the Package manager, that use all the power of NuGet
  • Large set of activities that allow you to build the bots for a lot of scenarios and use cases. The limit is your imagination.
  • Easy deployment of the projects and bots, locally or remotely through Orchestrator platform
  • Easy coding and programming by the use of a quite friendly language: VB.net
  • They have to improve the way of how to show error message to the developer, I mean in which file is the error and also, offer suggestions in case that you declare a wrong type of variable or if you are missing something else.
  • For Citrix/Remote desktop environments they have to improve the recognition of some elements in the remote screen, the added a new package to do this but is still in beta version and need several adjustments.
  • It would be awesome if we might choose the language we want to use to code the activities, because even when VB.net is easy, is not the most popular language, rather, C# is currently one of the most famous
UIPath is well suited for processes that have a unique structure, that are not going to change through time, and where the information provided has the same format. It is also appropriate for automating simple office tasks such as opening and sending email, extracting information from them, and resending it. If you work in a local environment you can implement the RPA bots in a easier way, but if you have remote desktop apps to handle with UIPath, it will be quite difficult, because there are a lot of issues about work involved in such scenarios. Another scenario when UIPath is not appropriate is when the business processes needs human logic or analysis for being completed. We are still far [from getting] the bots to think or decide as a human so do not take the risk.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "UiPath - Best RPA choice for beginners and experts"

Here in my organization we use UiPath for robotic manual and repetitive processes in order to gain performance, speed and accuracy in the results of these processes. We have a specialized team focused on delivering RPA projects (using the UiPath tool). The focus of these projects are manual and repetitive rules-based processes.
  • Easy integration with other applications
  • Free On-line academy
  • Easy-to-learn
  • Free Community Edition
  • UiPath has Orchestrator to manage robots but it's not worth it when we consider a project with less than 50 robots.
  • Lack of documents about how to create Custom Activities. It would be great to have some detailed information. Today we have just the basics, so if you don't have experience it can be very hard to develop.
  • It will be great to implement AI features in the future.

When I started working with UiPath I realized that it was a tool that would make a big difference in the market. Using it since 2015 I realized that the main focus of UiPath is to bring ease in the development of the robot. And that's exactly what the tool provides us. In addition, the online academy is a great differential. With free courses and a wide range of courses available, it is very easy for anyone to learn what RPA is and start applying it on a day to day basis. The Community version of the tool is also a great advantage compared to other tools available in the market.

In addition to the strengths mentioned above, the ease of integration with other tools is also somewhat surprising. Creating Custom Activities is something very easy to do. To this day I have not seen any situation where it was not possible to use UiPath to resolve because of this easy integration.

I can not stop commenting also about the Forum. There you can connect with several people who also use UiPath and share experiences. With just a few clicks you can find the solution that bothers you so much, as well as being able to share your own experiences.

In conclusion, I believe that UiPath is the market leader precisely for bringing ease of development and especially for listening to its users.

I've been working with UiPath since 2015. When we compare this RPA tool with others available in the market, we can see that the big difference is community-focused work. In addition, we can see that Uipath has been perfecting itself very quickly, which makes it a bit difficult to keep up with so many changes in such a short time. I would not say that this is a disadvantage, but that it is necessary to be in constant learning. Another point I wanted to mention is that the Orchestrator is a bit expensive, since it is necessary to purchase it separately. We should also make it clear that Orchestrator is only worth it if we have at least 50+ robots in operation. The lack of a resource that manages fewer robots is something that would be needed.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "Best RPA Tool for Stable Processes"

As EY(Ernst and Young ) is a big four organization, Uipath is a very crucial RPA tool used in EY across Globe to provide highly stable, efficient RPA BOTs to clients. In EY GDS until now, we have created approx 850 BOTs in a time span of 3 Years. It is being used by all departments like Tax, audit, and advisory etc. It helps in automating approximately all business process with different domains like FS, non-FS, oil and gas, health sectors, tax etc.
  • Computer Vision: Latest CV activity enables efficient Citrix automation.
  • Custom Activities: UiPath is very close to .net and C# languages and helps to expand the functionality by writing custom codes for actions which are not supported by UiPath
  • Heaven for developers of a C#, Java, dot net background.
  • Ease of development and BOT implementation.
  • Awesome UiPath support team always help you whenever you are in a difficult situation.
  • Not very great PDF activities.
  • Debugging and testing is not up to the mark as provided by other RPA vendors
  • Code sometimes becomes very large as each activity occupies some space on your computer screen. So it is difficult to look at the whole code in a single view. Another too,l like (AA), is good at that.
It is well suited in all scenarios where there is no human thinking required and business logic is not changing. It is not well suited to get captcha information.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform Review: "UiPath has the best training courses and the best learning curve"

I am automating validation of work items between BPOpen and SAP. Avoiding too much manual labor on the part of the user, freeing the time gained for more analytical and less repetitive work. UiPath is being used on the RPA Factory for meeting the needs of internal customers and providing financial savings by reducing the hours needed to carry out a specific tax process. In addition to avoiding possible human error.
  • Very easy to use, great learning curve. The UiPath academy is possibly the best portal to learn among other tools.
  • Speed ​​to start produced verified results.
  • Excellent orchestrator for managing robots and logs.
  • Best OCR is available on the market, including Citrix automation.
  • I miss a functionality similar to the "immediate window" of Visual Studio. The Immediate window is used to debug and evaluate expressions, execute statements, and print variable values. The Immediate window evaluates expressions by building and using the currently selected project.
  • Adapting the automation to new versions of the product can be challenging.
  • It's not the most cost-friendly tool in the market.
UiPath is suitable to any need, but it is notably better in automations that run in the background with the "'simulate click" and "send window messages," that can be used in various scenarios, as well as its integrations with plenty of excellent OCR engines. UiPath would not be appropriate on some low-budget projects, but in the long term, it has proven to be better due to the low maintenance and rework rate required.
