Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

UiPath has been working great for us in automating processes where data needs to be manually fed into one application and the result transposed to another one. Data entry and data transfer between applications is a slow and error-prone process when done manually. RPA is a great solution to this problem. We're using attended automation for this, but productivity has increased by a factor of ten.
  • Quick learning curve for developers, with great templates.
  • Wide application support (both native and web-based).
  • Lots of training and learning material available, including an online academy.
  • Great pricing when considering the productivity gains.
  • Developers used to complain about UiPath becoming slow when developing complex processes. This only happens when developing, not when running the automation, so we solved this by boosting developers laptops with more RAM.
  • Productivity has increased by a factor of 10.
  • Errors made in data transfer were virtually eliminated.
  • People are happier doing more interesting work.
We've evaluated Contextor and Jacada, but UiPath is simpler to implement, has better developer support and offers wider training material.
With great automation tools such as UiPath there's really no reason to have staff executing repetitive and boring tasks. However, when human judgment is critical, RPA automation won't be a good fit.
