Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

The scope of the project foresees the change of several administrative processes of the America Movil group. We researched several automation tools from leaders of the market and UiPath was one of them. The cost and the impacts of the maintenance of services are the main reasons for our choice, as well as partnerships of the contracting company of the group.
  • Low cost of implementation and maintenance of architecture compared to competitors.
  • A rich collection of examples and an active community for problem-solving.
  • Diversity of packages and add-ons.
  • As in other tools, OCR and its applications are limited and only a few are effective.
  • Rules of argument in the code are confusing.
  • Templates are useful but not applicable due to the diversity of the utility.
  • Greater control of activities and reduction of errors.
  • Cutting costs with idle labor.
  • Hiring specialized professionals and creating architecture.
Better cost in implementation and maintenance, access to solutions and cases by the community. Familiarity with the .NET language and consequently with the Windows operating system.

I should point out that the other tools serve points that are weak in UiPath, such as the possibility of being deployed in Linux and adaptability to cognitive systems. It is necessary to study this on a case by case basis in large corporations where it is possible to have the need for more than one tool.
Web scraping and table generation are quite intuitive and easy to deploy but information that is extracted from documents through OCR is unreliable. The possibility of integration with API and other APP is a strong point of the tool that generates greater freedom in development. The development client interface is a little polluted and the organization of the activity stream is confusing and requires more attention from the developer in script creation and in the change of activities done previously.
