Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

It plays a really important role in the organization's automation endeavor. At the moment, it is used just in one department, but in the future, there will be significant growth in terms of using this product. It addresses the need to automate the manually done, monotonous tasks. With this product, people can do much more creative tasks.
  • Easy to use - You can easily pick up the way to use it because of its user-friendly UI and the comprehensive tutorials.
  • Easy to learn - UiPath provides a really useful Academy Platform where you can get all the required knowledge to start using the software and automate business tasks.
  • Easy to implement - It provides a wide range of activities, you can automate a lot of programs/software with it. It just needs UiPath Studio installed, and that's all.
  • There are some annoying bugs, which can take a lot of time to debug. I mean, a few hours pass with debugging until you realize, that the problem you've met, is caused by a bug, and it is not because of faulty code.
  • It is a bit easy to get lost in the naming conventions (eg. Robots, Orchestrator, Job, Process, Queues, Environment etc). However, after the training, you will quickly get used to it in a real-life working situation.
  • UiPath needs to improve in terms of the certification platform (it is really old school and outdated), and because of the monthly community releases - sometimes, when you are watching the training videos, you can realize that it was recorded in a much older environment.
  • I am sure that it generates a positive impact on almost every business objective.
  • With the use of UiPath, your employees could do a more creative job instead of the monotonous tasks.
  • It may happen that your employees are not open to these kinds of innovations, therefore they lose their job.
The UiPath platform is the most widely used RPA platform nowadays. Moreover, it offers a totally free Community Version with free Orchestrator as well. In order to use these appropriately, they offer a totally free online course called UiPath Academy, where you can learn how to use the software and what it is capable of. The competing platforms don't offer as well developed online course as UiPath for free. Automation Anywhere has just released their Community Version, and Automation Anywhere University online courses so we will see where it leads to.
When your organization has a lot of monotonous, manually done tasks, UiPath comes into the picture. With that, you can easily automate tasks, which are taking a lot of time to do manually and have low added value (such as copying invoice data to backend systems, etc.). It is less appropriate when it faces that kind of tasks, which needs a lot of human actions and has a lot of decision points. In that situation, you should decide whether is it worth it to automate that task, or not?
