What is UiPath Automation Platform?

UiPath's hyperautomation platform combines a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution with capabilities to enable organizations to scale digital business operations at speed, automating millions of repetitive, mind-numbing tasks for businesses and government organizations all over the world.

The UiPath Automation Platform enables users to discover opportunities for process improvement by mining communications taking place throughout the business, and through mapping out how employees work, while mining and monitoring every business conversation. This process enables users to capture and manage automation ideas and process improvements in one place, prioritized by impact and ROI .

All created integrations and automations are centrally managed through the UiPath Automation Platform. Users can continuously test and monitor automations and the applications they rely on with the platform's built-in testing.

  • Build business apps and automations with low-code, visual tools
  • Combine RPA and API integration for speed and scale across the widest range of systems
  • Remove work from paperwork with intelligent document processing
  • Incorporate AI and machine learning (ML) models into automations
  • Get various kinds of robots to do all kinds of work—from ready-to-go SaaS robots to robots that work alongside their people on everyday tasks
  • Create smarter decision-making and collaboration between people and digital workers

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.
  • Business Process Automation for some of the financial processes which reduces time to market and efficiency. It also helped us reducing the cost and by doing automation repetative task needs lesser time.
  • 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.
The other RPA tool which I used is Blue Prism, however comparatively Uipath is quiet user friendly and easy to learn and use. We can not use BP processes on Citrix/Virtual machines. Also Uipath has strong user community. Uipath also provides free trial community and enterprise edition for 30 days. UIpath is quite easy compared to other business process automation tools, it has a better UI and its more of a self explanatory tool.

We're using UiPath to automate HR activities in the company using attended and unattended setup. Attended robots are installed on the employee's workstation and can be called at will to assist them in specific tasks.
Unattended bots process backend information for the tasks that cannot be handled by the backend systems.
  • Interfacing with front-end applications
  • Studio development software works intuitively
  • Fast-evolving to be able to handle future challenges
  • Process development troubleshooting
  • Development in UiPath Studio requires technical knowledge and development skills
The UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform learning environment is available for everyone and offers anyone the ability to get insights on how UiPath works. Developers can obtain certification to prove their (advanced) skills.
The ultimate goal of UiPath is to provide a robot assistant for every employee in a company, but that might become quite costly. I suggest picking your battles on automation carefully.
  • Quicker processing of input
  • Creating added value for end-users
At the moment, we only rely on the community for support, which is quite active and many issues are already encountered by other users and resolved.
  • Online training
Video material supported by text. The training has evolved a lot in the past 3 years to become more attractive.
Specific training tracks exist for the different roles in RPA development, where everyone is expected to learn basic development.
