Overall Satisfaction with UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

We are going to use UiPath to automate highly repetitive task across all departments. It can be used universally to address any process you see fit for automation. Wether it is front or back-office. Even if you do not have direct access to the desktop that is beeing automated, that is also not a hindrance for this software. You can easily automate VDIs and there are some very powerful tools upcoming in the future to further improve remote desktop automation.

Pros

  • It is easy to learn and use. There is a great UiPath online Academy that will help you on the way to become a versatile user of the software.
  • And even if you are stuck at some point, there is a great community and great support from UiPath, that will definetly help you out.
  • The robot management system Orchestrator is a great tool to monitor your deployed bots.
  • You do not need extensive coding knowledge to start building your own bots and you will gradually become more confident as you proceed to build own solutions.

Cons

  • Coding knowledge is not required, but it should be stated that you should have some knowledge of it if you want to get the most out of UiPath. If you start building more complex processes coding is needed for the most parts. You don't have to be a pro but you should understand the basics of the .net framework and the languages that are using it.
  • The price of licensing the software and the different kinds of bots should be displayed easier online. It would make things more transparent from the get go.
  • Support can sometimes be a bit slow, but most of the time it is the opposite. So not really a big deal.
  • Expected time savings of up to 30% per FTE that is affected by implementation of UiPath
  • Reduction of human error rate to 0% for chosen process
If you need to automate a very repetitive process with a high volume UiPath is the best way to go, or if you have something to automate in Citrix, then it also can be done easily. But if you have a process that requires human thinking then UiPath is not the way to go right now. It does not include actions that have an AI to decide on more complex cases.

Using UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

It is very easy to learn and use, because it has a clean interface and most items are self explanatory.
