Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

Inside of our Automation development silo, we underwent several programs to first teach ourselves about the service, and then apply it to our own company, specifically on our payroll process for consultants and employees. Inside of this we managed to overhaul an error-ridden process and speed up payment processing times. From there we went to new and existing clients we have worked with on the basis of improving their technology, and applied the same principles to good result.
  • As an Automation Platform, UiPath Studio and Orchestrator excel at helping to identify, catalogue, and improve workplace processes. From improving security to reducing human error and processing time, Automation via UiPath is now a vital part of our company.
  • To teach yourself and your team, UiPath Academy Certifications can be completed in about 2-3 weeks, to not only educate yourself about the platform but to improve your teams capabilities and guarantee ability.
  • Bot Logs and Process monitoring is efficient through Orchestrator, cutting down on the amount of time it takes to make sure that your client automations are performing their tasks.
  • A lack of macOS Support requires additional hurdles for certain client implementations, or forces you into using VMs.
  • UiPath is attempting to sponsor an open source and user friendly community, but forgoes native GitHub tools in favour of paid Version Control systems.
  • Built-in Citrix recording is the current weak point we have found, and may require you to find alternative software for complex automations.
  • Creation of a new development team and those associated costs, along with the licensing fees, can be a large dampening factor on early ROI.
  • Taking the time to certify the team and implement projects within the company allow for cost and time-saving for employees along with being a training ground for anything not covered.
  • UiPath is becoming a larger share of our management revenue by allowing us to achieve continuous and repeating income streams for relatively low overhead.
The support, cost, and learning academy of UiPath made it a clear winner in this race. Blue Prism looked useful and functionally similar, but didn't provide the support structure necessary to launch this as a full first-time development silo for our company. If it's already being used and implemented it may be easy, but being able to all a developer to full self-direct their learning and have a development standard of code right off the bat was invaluable.
As stated before, overhauling an existing payroll process that relies on the manual processing of dozens if not hundreds of client/consultant invoices each month was a huge win for time-saving in our organization. This is because UiPath excels at automating repetitive tasks that can be quantified and controlled. If you think UiPath can help with answering client questions through an automated support bot, the email infrastructure and analysis is not there yet, and I would personally go with other sources for automation.
