Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

Currently, UiPath is being used as a multi-departmental tool between IT and Finance to help solve problems such as Invoice organization and renaming and advanced filtering of large Excel documents with crucial information for the business. We also use this as a service to implement with our clients, the most common problem they have is invoice classification using bill numbers that they get from emails or other sources.
  • Uipath has a very intuitive UI that makes it very simple to understand even for people that don't have very high technical knowledge.
  • The highly reliable Orchestrator permits you to have full control of your bots remotely.
  • Easy to deploy in a production environment, linking the robots to the Orchestrator.
  • Could use more OCR options.
  • The REFramework could have some improvements.
  • Operator compatibility.
  • Liberating resources to be used in other processes.
  • Robots can be run only when necessary so it won't interfere with other processes.
  • The lack of IA bots undermines the capabilities to act over more subjective processes.
In terms of the robot capabilities, most of the alternatives in the market (Including UiPath) are pretty tied, so the conclusion of which one you'll use comes from two factors, The first one is UI, and Uipath has by far one of the most intuitive ones out there but on the second one, IA robots, is pretty lacking against competitors like Automation Anywhere and their IQ bots.
UiPath is perfect for automating processes that rely heavily on business rules like filling reports, filtering and creating sheets of data, generation of datasets by capping the source of the data, etc. Where UiPath struggles is with subjective processes that require more human interaction like the classification of invoices based on their content. This could use a better implementation of cognitive technology and IA.
