Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

We started using UiPath as a part of our portfolio for automation. We integrate it with Chatbots too, so Chatbot can identify the user request and run the UiPath robot on the backend. We have a team that develops the solutions end-to-end, and afterword sells it to the end client. The main problem is that RPA, as we know it, is still quite a new thing so it takes time to get used to.
  • You can start for free.
  • You have a great community and perfect learning platform called UiPath Academy.
  • You don´t need many skills to start, even from a business or technical point of view. All you need to start with is common sense.
  • I would appreciate more advanced courses from the Academy, like how to implement your own code, how to deal with vb.net classes in UiPath etc.
  • Give the user a chance to customize the studio more, like layout etc.
  • Great ROI - positive.
  • Fast and easy to deploy - positive.
  • Low starting costs - positive.
  • Quite high running costs for individuals or small business - negative.
We selected it for two main reasons. First, you can start for free and don´t need to bother yourself with a license. Second, its extraordinary community and Academy provided by the platform. With a little time investment, you can create an RPA developer from someone who has no IT experience so far.
Mainly useful for handling repeat process that drains many man-hours. This process is a great fit to be automated with RPA tool. Also, it is well suited for helping you with filling out forms, handling emails, gathering data around the internet, etc.

You can not really use it when the input data is unstructured or the decisions during the process are human-made.
