Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

UiPath is currently being used to automate processes across our whole company, but putting special attention in Finance related processes. The already deployed projects cover processes mostly involving the download of information from internal web applications and/or SAP, massaging the data in a certain form, and providing an analysis of that data in a specific format required by the business users.
  • Web automation, as the recording capability of UiPath, makes it extremely easy to build the skeleton of your automation just by recording the steps
  • Email related activities, as it enables not only interaction with Outlook but also allows SMTP configurations.
  • Interaction with Excel, as it allows executing macros.
  • PowerShell related activities are confusing and hard to use. The worst part is that there is not a lot of documentation available to reference.
  • HTTP activities for API fail even in situations where the API call is tested in other applications like Postman.
  • The stability of the Google Chrome extension can be improved. We have had situations where we have been in the need to reinstall it.
  • 200+ man-hours saved.
  • $250K+ cost savings.
UiPath has a great advantage that building your automation involves mostly dragging and dropping pre-defined activities, so there is no need for having people with actual coding experience. This enables you to train business users into actually automating their own processes. The best scenarios where the tool is applicable are repetitive, rule-based and well-defined processes. Probably the worst scenarios are where you have non-native PDF files and you need to rely solely on the OCR capabilities, which are not 100% accurate by definition.
