"UiPath - A good choice for beginners and experts"

What do you like best?

When I started working with UiPath I realized that it was a tool that would make a big difference in the market. Using it since 2015 I realized that the main focus of UiPath is to bring ease in the development of the robot. And that's exactly what the tool provides us. In addition, the online academy is a great differential. With free courses and a wide range of courses available, it is very easy for anyone to learn what RPA is and start applying it on a day to day basis. The Community version of the tool is also a great advantage compared to other tools available in the market.

In addition to the strengths mentioned above, the ease of integration with other tools is also somewhat surprising. Creating Custom Activities is something very easy to do. To this day I have not seen any situation where it was not possible to use UiPath to resolve because of this easy integration.

I can not stop commenting also about the Forum. There you can connect with several people who also use UiPath and share experiences. With just a few clicks you can find the solution that bothers you so much, as well as being able to share your own experiences.

In conclusion, I believe that UiPath is the market leader precisely for bringing ease of development and especially for listening to its users.

What do you dislike?

I've been working with UiPath since 2015. When we compare this RPA tool with others available in the market, we can see that the big difference is community-focused work. In addition, we can see that Uipath has been perfecting itself very quickly, which makes it a bit difficult to keep up with so many changes in such a short time. I would not say that this is a disadvantage, but that it is necessary to be in constant learning. Another point I wanted to mention is that the Orchestrator is a bit expensive, since it is necessary to purchase it separately. We should also make it clear that Orchestrator is only worth it if we have at least 50+ robots in operation. The lack of a resource that manages fewer robots is something that would be needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath is easy to learn. They have the UiPath Academy (on-line courses) which is easy to follow and to learn how to use the platform and what is RPA.

There is a official Forum too! So you have any doubt there will be always someone to help you to solve it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my company we have used UiPath since 2015 as well. To date we have had no process where we could not robotize using UiPath. Of course, it is necessary to focus on processes that have standards, are manual and repetitive. RPA is not about robotizing everything, but rather robotizing the processes that are prepared for it.

Until today we robotized several areas. Among them: P2P, R2R, O2C and HR. It was a great challenge in the beginning, however, we currently have more than 200 robots in operation here in Brazil.

In the case of benefits, it is difficult not to rejoice in the great results that the robotization using UiPath has brought us. We achieve greater speed, precision and reduction of effort. I can consider that today my company is not the same as 3 years ago. UiPath has come to change the way we do business and I am pleased to have used this tool in my company.

"Dive into automation era"

What do you like best?

Most of automation is done with simple click and select items, directly on the automated system. Less code and more productive results. UIPath makes easy to use automation as you can simply click on items you want to interact. The use visual designing and common workflows makes easy even for non-IT professionals to draw flow diagrams.

What do you dislike?

There's no free Orchestrator for small processes. UIPath Chrome extensions sometimes is unstable. When you update to a version, sometimes opening previous versions solutions become nasty. The packages between versions become incompatible, and when you install a package from other version, the previous one is not removed, causing a start up error, because DLLs and other files are in conflict.

Automating web site fill in forms, capturing characters via OCR, automating SAP transactions. Repetitive tasks like transactions within several rows. Working with Excel files, reading and writing rows, updating information. Interact directly with databases using UIPath Activities, making easy to select, update or delete data, since you don't have to write much code to execute SQL statements. If you need more integration, it is available to invoke webservices, closing the integration circle.

"Rpa uipath automation reviews"

What do you like best?

The tool which has no coding is obviously the one of the great thing so that each users can easily work on this automated tool. Via proper knowledge of this rpa tool people can easily learn the workflows whether they have the prior knowledge of coding or not. Uipath makes the process very friendly towards their users so that a new hope is create between the users and the tool which is very much essential in todays world. Uipath is great tool having good users interface and its open source which is its community edition. It has a community through people can discuss their problems and new ideas and together they can work on that.

What do you dislike?

The tool having lits of functionality like recording, ocr, activities this make it a complete package. The dislike is not really in this but still we can say we can do new things in this by inventing new task or activities. The tool is good and easy to use and popular everywhere. The property tab of the activities have very less knowledge this is the thing i dislike only we can do thia better by adding proper functioning of the property tab

Recommendations to others considering the product

people should follow this amazing tool which done the automation very fast and reliable. they should follow the academy.uipath training and certification too with the use of this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The automatic task like to fetch large amount of data from the table like to fetch no. Of employees having salary greater than 200000 with some specific filters and data is in large amount this should be done for each and every users present in the database and haing link with email.

Also the processes of workflows like to send automatic email to user to inform them about some incidents with specific reports and much more information.

"The Best RPA tool"

What do you like best?

1. It is very easy to develop/implement

2. Any kind of process can be easily automated.

3. It offers one of the best integration features with OCR

What do you dislike?

1. The UI Path Studio IDE can be slightly modified

2. More integration options can be provided for PDF files

Recommendations to others considering the product

More support can be provided by UI Path team in case of any bugs/issues for better understanding for people like us/developers

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. By using this tool, we were able to reduce the Turn Around Time(TAT) drastically. For processes which took around around 5 minutes for one record we were able to complete within 1 minute using UI path.

2. Manual validations done by excel were reduced efficiently. The users had to spend manually for more than an hour in excel to validate few results by using Vlookup. By using UI path , we were able to minimise the effort spent by them and do the validations within minutes there by reducing manual work and their time.

"UiPath is in the top 2 of the RPA tools"

What do you like best?

Uipath is certainly the most acclaimed RPA tool on the market. Its ease of use and firepower are prime points for its worship. Its interface is user friendly and even those who do not have programming ease can use it. The implementation and editing of selectors make the tool extremely powerful and your courses at UiPath Academy make learning very easy and fast. The Orchestrator course is really good and allows the solution developer to completely meet any type of demand

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately some things can still be improved. The documentation of ReFramework is very confusing, although there is the Advanced Course of UiPath, where the focus is ReFramework itself. I believe this is the most difficult, since certification is mandatory in ReFramework, and it is the Framework indicated by the company for the solution of problems

Recommendations to others considering the product

If they are starting in the RPA area, start with UiPath. It will certainly be a pleasant learning, the community is extremely active in the forums and the social network of UiPath itself and the courses they offer are of great value

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We currently use the tool to sell solutions to internal customers. Most of the work that we automated is the migration of data between systems, automation of emails, extraction of data of pdf with OCR, among others. The gain has been perceptible from the first moment, as human errors have been noticeably reduced to almost zero. Another good point for us is that we can leave the robot working as long as we want.

"Must have tool for RPA developer"

What do you like best?

Gone are the days when you have to deploy 100s of people for repeated tasks. We regularly update invoices of different channels and merchants to our workflow. Capturing each invoice requires some human attention. There are chances of using OCR or Text based extraction of invoices. We easily automate each type of invoice extraction to our Spreadsheet. This reduces 1 hour (Max 1.5 hr) of 100 employees in our organization.

What do you dislike?

We have deployed the technology since 6 mos. We are facing a major challenge in front of us. The invoice automation can only be done when the invoices are on website. Usually we fetch invoices from partner websites as PDF. Thus we are doing an extra work in converting the PDF to HTML. Though the robot is doing that but we had to add extra sequence in that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath RPA is leading tool and working on technology. Every automation company and its officials should get certified and be ready for RPA.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Majorly replacing all the remote freelancers which were doing the copy-paste work for us to fetch invoices at low pay are now set free. We do not hire them rather our UiPath robot does that.

What do you like best?

UiPath tool is one of the good tool i have ever used. its a robotic process automation tool which helps to built the automated workflows and scripts. the best thing is the user interface which i like the most in this tool. its user interface is very simple and robust. we can simply access the activities from the activity pannel and use drag and drop option for our workflows. the activities name are very common name so that we easily learn them and use accordingly.

another best part of this tool re framework through this we can implement large business process very easily.

What do you dislike?

UiPath is good in use and i believe these is some issues related to selector which i faced a lot as if you switch the project and run again sometimes we need to update the selector again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"UiPath- the best RPA tool I used !"

What do you like best?

UiPath is very user friendly, easy to learn and implementable RPA tool. It has drag and drop commands which helps the developers with very minimal level of coding. UiPath is the best tool among all vendors for Citrix automation and they, in their recent version published selector based automation even for Citrix automation thus making it more robust. Also, VBA, Python, C# or any code and application can be easily integrated with UiPath.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is bit aggressive compared to other but is manageable for the quality of software they provide. Also, with latest versions some bugs are there, some features like "get visible text" is not reliable always. So always migrate to latest version after 2 or 3 months once the product is stabilized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy and quick automation with robust citrix automation technology. From my experience best tool among the top 3 (UiPath, Automation Anywhere, Blue prism)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Citrix automation for order processing, document management, Invoice processing, HR Recruitment process, Downloading and Uploading of design documents, SAP automation etc.

"Great Visual Based Desing RPA"

What do you like best?

The ability to integrate flowcharts and sequences for decision making and logic testing. As well has many tools that can be integrated into the platform such as google chrome and more.

UiPath is used for multiple very different cases. We're using it to automate regression testing for example. It's easy to let a robot test a process like the end user would and validate that everything works. Another interesting usecase is transmitting data from a new system to an old system, during the implementation of the new system. The old system is still needed for a while, but we avoid users having to go through the process in both systems, by having a robot that collects the info and runs it through the old system.

What do you dislike?

Not many object or element tools for interacting with a legacy system of SAP or other ERP systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a better Activities side bar that breaks up the available activity boxes so you are not always searching for things.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to create complex decision making scripts that can integrate on a multitude of platforms and be used again in future development projects.

"Very easy and viable solution for automation of simple and repetitive tasks"

What do you like best?

You can really start off very quickly, I had a very small training (2 hours) and I was off to go! Of course there was a lot of material available to help me in the process (Free lessons in the Uipath Academy site or a simple google search in the Uipath formus might be enough).

Programming is easy for someone like me that doesnt have a TI related degree, but at least im familiar with some programming basics.

Uipath is also very easy to install and update, also its simple interface and search functions makes it very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

There were some tools that I couldnt get to work, such as the OCR (wasn't very reliable), and the fact that image recognition activities would sometimes fail due to changes in the resolution of the screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software can really increase your operating efficiency, and doest need an expensive TI team to use it. Benefits of the RPA projects really stand out in the results of the company, if you are not using RPA solutions you should start now with Uipath!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work on a big insurance company, and we have a lot of common and repetitive operations that weren't candidate for a big automation Project, but fitted just perfect for a RPA solution. As an example, for the monthly renewal of insurance policies, we automated the extraction of qualification reports of clients and the processing of the renewal itself.

"UiPath: Blast For Functional Experts"

What do you like best?

UiPath is a software company specialized in robotic process automation software solutions by providing the solution as human works especially in the field of document management, call center, healthcare, financial, API enablement, data extraction and migration, process automation, application integration. It provides a platform in which human work becomes creative and inspiring by eradicating repetitive tasks through intelligent use of software automation. It provides an agile robotic workforce by providing state-of-the-art technology.

What do you dislike?

Uipath Academy can introduce more than at least three or more than that for practicing the orchestrator tutorials, along with providing dummy websites in order to improve the Citrix SAP Automation tutorials

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool whose main mission is to free people from repetitive, boring jobs and has a blast in your job along the way. We’re growing faster than we expected and that’s humbling

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to automate Microsoft CRM tool which is based on.net

For every deployment, the developers are manually pushing the code and they raise CR for getting the deployment window which involves redundant tasks.

Our idea to get this done is creating a scheduler which regularly updates the logs of deployment window from CICD portal.

In this way, the developers are already aware of the upcoming outrage and while pushing their changes they can triage the complexity involved by manually checking.

Also, the CICD is already automated by which involves the process of logging into GIT HUB and cloning and running sanity test cases for the newly developed code.

What do you dislike?

The PDF reader is reviewed, it has many bug in the part of scanning the PDF of the internet.

"UiPath- Stable BOTs with Awesome Tool-"

What do you like best?

Following are best features provided by UiPath as per my knowledge:

7. Develop Efficient, reliable and stable BOTs

8. Supports creating custom codes if some functionality is not provided by UiPath

What do you dislike?

Following are features provided by UiPath that I DISLIKE as per my knowledge:

1. Version Incompatible: Sometimes code developed in Higher Version shows many error while opening in lower version . Even you will not be able to identify which activity is unable to load.

2. PDF Acitvity: UiPath PDF Activities are with very limited functionality as compared to other tool like Automation Anywhere

3. Licence Cost : As compared to other RPA tools UiPath cost more to the clients.

After thing a lot I can find only these 3, otherwise UiPath is an AWESOME TOOL

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tool to any new or experienced person in RPA due to following reasons:

1. This tool is featured with almost all the actions on all type of application

2. This tool allows to create your own custom code to automate an application

3.Tool is very easy to understand and use.Good in performance

4. Any guy having who wants to still grom in Programming and RPA can opt this tool as it will never hamper coding skills of any one

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With around 2.5 years of experience in UiPath. I have worked on many use cases and am listing few of them in brief to support my point:

1.Invoice Processing: Invoice in PDF text formats and extracting the key values and load into SAP.this process needs a standard type of PDF here variation in PDF format can cause error in results

2. Oil and Gas Domain: Here I have worked on many processes dealing with many different applications like Excel, web, windows, Oracle DB, SOL DB , SAP etc.

3.Email Automation: Usually in all process we have to deal Emails and performing activities like reading, sending attaching etc.

Benefits:

in Organisation like EY and other BIG4 , we measure success of our projects with client happiness.

Implementing RPA we can see Clients happy as it saves FTE , money, time etc. to them.

They also up-skills them selves

"Simple and powerful: This is UiPath"

What do you like best?

UiPath is a simple tool to be used, friendly interface and at the same time powerful and useful to automate most repetitive processes. From an academy with training courses that enroll anyone who wants to join the RPA area, teaching from basic to advanced around 20 hours. Available features, integrations with other applications, and a large amount of community-made frameworks that are very active are the things that make UiPath more feasible to use or choose from its competitors Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism.

What do you dislike?

Despite all the good points, UiPath still leaves a bit to be desired with the documentation. ReFramwork, which is an adopted Community Framework, is too nebulous to be understood and poorly documented and presented in the course, causing us to scour the Internet for help. Another downside is the passage of arguments and the number of native commands is not as vast as that of one of your competitors

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath will surely win over anyone planning to join the RPA. The tool is friendly, simple to use, very visual, courses are well produced and explained, certification is free until the end of March

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently implementing a solution for a large telephony company to migrate data between systems. This data is fetched on an A system and placed on a system B. Much of UiPath's functions are well used, such as integration with PDF, OCR, Excel, and a few others. The financial return tends to be large, since the robot manages to work 24/7 and with almost zero errors

"An emerging form of Business Process Automation Technology based on the notation of AI with Robots."

What do you like best?

Robotic process automation (or RPA) is an emerging form of business process automation technology based on the notion of software robots or artificial intelligence (AI) workers.It has Excellent wide variety of activities which can reduce most of the manual work and time.Many Handy Options are there ,video tutorial is very helpfull even nondeveloper can hold the hands on UiPath. Brilliant Job from team.UiPath Studio Community Edition is open for all small professional teams, developers, learning and training purposes, very easy to understand and implement .Non Developer can easily automate the process using UiPath.UiPath solves the challenges discussed above with an AI Computer Vision algorithm that enables human-like recognition of user interfaces, using a mix of AI, OCR , text fuzzy-matching, and an anchoring system to tie it all together.

What do you dislike?

Little more example with some treal time short projects would helpfull for begginers.The Community Edition software will not be available with a phone or email support.

The features that are doesn’t available in UIPath community Edition are

• Local hosting of UIPath Orchestrator server.

• Auto Start of UI Robot.exe which is used to connect to the Orchestrator server.

• The libraries which you download from nugget package manager will get deleted every time the tool asks you to activate it; this generally happens if you do not use the tool for a long time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has community addition which if open source , I would recommend to take the benefit of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are automating the Entire Sales process includes getting Customer oders from an email, Formatting the files, uploading into Application, Comparing the updated report with Existing one , matching the orders with many processes , finally send the Status via emails to notify the customer about the order. We are performing some excel and email automation.

"Amazing Experience with UiPath "

What do you like best?

Periodic work becomes so easy specially data feeding jobs , really like the idea of community edition , i was new to automation with Uipath not only i have learnt how to do the automation also delivered many use cases.

Its great boost the career, and tutorial were really to best approach to make anyone understand.

What do you dislike?

In Community edition while debugging sometimes it hangs, and looses its focus of step into feature and that run need to be killed from the task bar.both the BOT service or opened XMAL. One thing its dark theme is too dark it should be little bit grey side as it making difficult to focus on the screen because of it complete darkness and the text is white its high contrast making it unsuitable to work, i shift to dark theme but back to white.Also if there is big process certainly a large volume of variables is there so it is very difficult to search a specific variable. Search variable option should have been there as it can make development process a lot more easier.

.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the big reason that is community edition that comes free so the any new user can learn and practice and make their career its great opportunity to boost CV.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reading attachment from outlook and logging to another application and performing the daily task like new user creation generating reports based on the Bot process.

Picking up the request from ticketing tool and logging into another application and creating an account for requested user since the account can be created limited number so based on the last activity first it delete the user and then create new user and again go to the ticketing tool to update the ticket and also send the reports to relevant people.All of that kind of work is now automated apart form this there is few more automation has been done.

"Reliable, Simple and Fast"

What do you like best?

It is very simple to make a workflow, very interactive and easy to use. The drag-and-drop feature is required.

The training of the gym is very complete and very useful for people who start working with uipath. The examples and exercises are very realistic and very self-explanatory.

If we use the reformulation, all the exceptions that can occur are very simple to treat. The recovery process is very simple.

The UIPath community is quick to respond to your help topic

What do you dislike?

Some bugs with the Google Chrome interaction, we do not have selectors in Chrome pop-ups or in the print menu.

Sometimes the UI Explorer can not make a trusted selector or just can not find one.

When we update a project or simply move the project to another machine, project dependencies can be a difficult problem to solve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very important to make the training of the academy available on the UIPATH website for a carrier development.

Before development, it is important to study the current process and how we can make it better and faster with a robot.

See some topics in the UIPath forum to improve your solutions or just to see the most common problems and solutions

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Read, process, and insert invoices in SAP, report and email, update, and control multiple databases with information discarded on a specific site

The best benefit is the time and money that your business can save.

"World of Automation"

What do you like best?

I actually automated our visitors bot app of our organization. Its a inhouse app which'll have to click picture of a visitor whoever stands infront of the camera and identify if the visitor is new or old visitor. Its almost complete. I'm feeling extremely happy about this and its a very good experience. This is one such great thing what we are actually inculcating in our organization so that everything which is boring to do can be automated. Like filling our timesheets and all.

What do you dislike?

Nothing like that. everything seems good and great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No such things . Keep up the good job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can automate our computer logging in and connecting to wifi as soon as machine is turned on by setting up our username and password.We in our project have included the RPA process for automating few things. We used for sending the banking reports in our banking application which will be sending automatically emailers to the users.

Thanks to G2 Crowd.We are motivated to learn more in RPA. And also we implemented in sending the account balance of the customers on monthly basis. we automated this and its really great.

"Get on the train. Uipath is changing Automation the way we see it!"

What do you like best?

Its really easy to learn. We have been able to automate some of the tasks we do here in the company, We can replace the human workers doing labor-intensive repetitive task, and focus them on other more difficult ones. No need to spend money on training new people, hiring, etc. As we just built the bot and it will do it all on his own.

Their new computer Vision, which allow you to automate inside citrix enviroments is really awesome and comes handy.

What do you dislike?

The abrupt updates has been an issue to me at the time of developing my bots. These are not too frequently as they always work their best to improve everything, but it does happens.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Uipath has come of great help for when we are planning on reducing cost in our production

Improvement in quality, as the bot is more accurate

No need to spend money on training new people, hiring, etc

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company is focus in the healthcare industry. We billed forms to the insurance companies, we have to receive the payments and update their respective patient. We work with denials, exceptions, explanations of benefits. We also get information that needs to be updated in the system. Im really excited to mention that Uipath has created even a new way of working inside Citrix enviroments. I don't think I can recall any other Automation software out there capable of doing this

"UIpath Review"

What do you like best?

Since its my first RPA tool, I like almost everything in this tool. It provides faster output with reduced Average Handling Time and very less probability of error. For process with bulk inputs its very good option to opt for to save FT benifits.the trial version avilable for new learners for free gives very good opportunity f or exploring the uipath RPA tool. Using Orchestrator has also been very good experience. Once one get it properly its very easy go to handle. and manage all jobs and scheduling jobs.

What do you dislike?

While working for citrix automation its bit difficult. the image capture some times fails . Out of most of the part which i explored in uipath , the part which i don't like is citrix or suface automation. Also not always OCR gives the desired outcome.Apart from it till now as much uipath I explored its perfect, No much points to be counted as dislikes or negative exists.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its very Good platform to go for automation. Community version helps alot to explore the tool so please keep it going.If the OCR part will be more accurate then Citrix Automation will go bit easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for business process which are recursive with bulk data.It provides faster output with reduced Average Handling Time and very less probability of error. For process with bulk inputs its very good option to opt for to save FT benifits.

"My own experience using UiPath"

What do you like best?

The way to be able to automatize almost everything (depending on developer skills) and how easy is it. Thanks to VB knowledge you can carry out many actions by calling methods of this language and be able to perform many tasks that other RPA tools can not do or need a previous work to carry out the work. Ease to separate code and be able to reuse it in other projects, and that the way to modify it is as easy as it is currently

What do you dislike?

Probably some points that other RPA tools have (like BP), as for example, start the process execution at one desired point of the workflow. But those things just are developing points. Another point that I would like to put out would be that the trial version (limited) was permanent so that the vast majority of users would use UiPath instead of other tools

Recommendations to others considering the product

Using this tool will make business being more productive than they were

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Be able to automatize any task what client was doing in its own work. Like make the counts in fact to make an invoice for a company... Control the number of customers who unsubscribe from a telephone company and send them a message (Orange), etc ... I have also done projects on remote systems, host or Citrix, which has resolved any task that client needed.

"Best in Class "

What do you like best?

It makes repeated task run uninterrupted smoothly and compared to selenium automation, its very easy and fast as compared to Selinium

What do you dislike?

Since i am still in the learning stage ,Till now i didn't face anything that would make me dislike it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It' very user friendly and easy to understand , it has got the most advanced features for automating today's process up to date.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have to deal with several multiple number of zip codes , currently we are dealing with Workers compensation and claim bills which we get through electronic correspondence, Mainly we deal with brokers and claim ends, for dealing with this we need Ui path support so that we can run multiple number of tasks to handle each claims with a desired set value. Similarly we created a BOT which will run getting the zip codes from attached csv file and get through each carrier sites and get the details that need to collect. It also helps to reduce that time , using this has created very user friendly it doesn't require a human requirement to run, Another advantage is this bot can be used in multiple systems and can be made to run , So we have implemented on many systems here through which we have made our work simple and and more efficient.

Since our company is a health insurance company we deal with multiple LOB's for collecting data , so a single human effort isn't possible to get through all the carriers and get the data so Ui path has been a key tool for solving this problem.

"Automation Done Easy"

What do you like best?

The graphical interface is really smooth, there is no need for technical background to start automating easy task. The effort needed to start from scratch and end up automating some really complicated tasks could not be easier.

What do you dislike?

In order to get the most out of UiPath, a programming background is needed. Because it is based on C#, automating tasks becomes a lot easier once you are able to write some basic code to handle the background logic your process is probably relying on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have not had an approach to RPA before, there is a long way ahead to go. But UiPath offers you a lot of options to do so. First of all, UiPath is free to use (if you meet the terms of use), there is a great and awesome community behind, where people supports people, and everyone from the community, an even from UiPath team, are always willing to help you, even if the question you have sounds too basic, there is always someone who will point you in the right direction.

And, of course, there is the UiPath academy. A website with a lot of resources available for you to learn at your own pace, no need to rush, just a need to learn.

If, on the other hand, you have been working with RPA before, you know there are a lot of tools out there like BluePrism, Automation Anywhere, Kapow, Automate, etc. Having this in mind there is no perfection in any of this tools, they have their ups and downs. But, personally, having seen and used some of this tools for the past year, has led me to feel really confident with the approach taken by UiPath to lead a community and not just a product, which from my developer perspective, means a lot. It is free to use, easy to learn and reliable. I do not think anything else is needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At the moment I am working on a Healthcare organization, the processes involve a lot of Excel files handling, database read/write operations, and front end automation (uploading and downloading files, and updating batches of data into websites).

The greater benefit for our client is the amount of time reduced. We have been able to reduce a human process that takes about 2 days to be finished, to an automated process that only takes as much as 1.5 hours to be done; this allows our client to invest the time left into much more productive tasks, while also reducing the delivery time for our end users.

"Deploy it Seamlessly on Azure IaaS + PaaS "

What do you like best?

Folks, I have tested this product in 3 weeks and in next 3 weeks it was deployed in our IT-Operations department. Major challenge was Setup and Configuration in Azure PaaS environment. I Reached out for help on:

"A no Brainer tool for implementing RPA"

What do you like best?

With a wave of many RPA vendors, UI path is the best one I've used till date. The overall IDE, the simplicity of the visuals and the complete yet free version of studio has no parallel. The fact that the overall cost of the bots developed in UI Path compared to other RPA tools is low, the ROI starts with a high note! There is also full fledged RPA academy training which no other competitor offers. It has clear distinctions between various recorders for Desktop, Web & Citrix. Its advanced computer vision to get correct elements is also like no other. Has a user friendly drag & drop workflow which requires minimum knowledge of .Net for coding purposes.

What do you dislike?

Not the fault in the tool, but overall convincing the existing resources = huge challenge.

Apart from this, Wish the following:

Libraries from nugget package manager will get deleted every time, and the tool asks to activate it.

Local hosting of UIPath Orchestrator server is not provided.

Auto-start feature of the UIRobot.exe is not available.

No:of test robots are limited to 5

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are new to RPA, dont think twice on using UI Path. If not, then too the answer is the same. :-)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Almost in PRODUCTION for the implemented scenario of Quote to Cash and realized benefits of 3-4 FTEs. The entire business process underwent HUGE savings and almost 100000$ per year savings (projected)

"Great tool for automation - easy,no prevoius experience of RPA sofware or coding is required"

What do you like best?

The software is user-friendly and allows you to explore your creativity when designing business processes through its flowchart.

UiPath was suggested to us for automation of back-office services and some tasks that requiring simple copy -> paste in another app/site. It was amazing to find out that almost no coding knowledge/experience was required in order to implement UiPath software.

Also, nice news was that it can perform some tasks minimized in the system tray without the necessity to been run on top of the other apps.

What do you dislike?

The only problems that we're faced for now are: Windows OS needed to run it(no support for Mac and other operating systems for now), some simple tasks couldn't be solved without knowing .Net methods. Plus It requires excessive computer resources

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are new to automation it is the best tool in the market to start as it has good user experience and easy to learn and do the task of automation perfectly

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation of back-office services and simple tasks requiring to paste info from one application to another.

"Most Accessible RPA Platform"

What do you like best?

Best part about UiPath is its comprehensive free courses that anyone can go through and learn an important skill in today's world, by actually practicing on the free community edition of their software.

What do you dislike?

Their development tool runs only on Windows. I would love to have a Mac version too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath software and platform is a fast, easy and reliable way of developing your RPA team, implementing your automations and maintaining it. As an organization implementing RPA, you need to look at what pricing they offer, and compare it with what other RPA providers (e.g. BluePrism, AutomateAnywhere, Kofax Kapow) have to offer, while also considering what value each of them offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on project to automate Quality Assurance User Interface Testing that currently needs to be done manually by software testers, or need to develop very complex time consuming software themselves with things like Selenium, and still very limited. I can see UiPath as a very powerful, easy and fast solution for this.

"It's intuitive, easy-to-understand, remarkable and fascinating to use"

What do you like best?

I like the process of automation the best when you have finished the flow and watch as your newly created bot is finished and ready to be deployed. Success!

What do you dislike?

I dislike when I encounter minor bugs in UiPath like for example assigning a variable and changing the data type right after is an error waiting to happen, usually it's just as simple as erasing the previously created variable and putting in the same one 2 seconds after. It's really not very efficient.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start now and don't regret not trying even once! The results are tremendous and are very helpful to either the success of your company or for yourself as you move forward, since the experience in learning RPA is invaluable to future endeavors and maybe your future business if ever!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With UiPath RPA, the possibilities are endless. With it, you can command an army of robots to be your staffs in doing any work on your desktop or laptop without the need for constant monitoring or fear of mistakes happening. Benefits of automation include time efficiency, endless repetitions and guaranteed progress for your work or task. It's a very rewarding experience to be able to create a functioning rpa for your business!

"Easy to use yet powerful."

What do you like best?

I'm a visual person so for me it's best to see everything in visual like the flowchart and state. Easy to understand and to use even in non experienced programmer as long as you have the background in flowchart. The community and the free online tutorial is on within your reach.

What do you dislike?

Every app or language have its cons or drawback. After months of using the UIpath one thing I notice is hard to follow the workflow specially in long and tedious process. I think the best way to do is create a color in each seq, there's an option where you can select the color of your sequence based on your grouping. Invoke flow may solved this but it won't be advisable if you already on 4th level deep.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UIPath RPA is the future. So it would be best to adopt early as possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Giving the employee or worker the opportunity to work on a smarter task since RPA already solve/do the manual repetitive task.

"Best low cost and efficient tool for Robotic Process Automation"

What do you like best?

Best thing that makes UiPath different than other tools is, this is available at very low cost and also it's Image Automation is very efficient. Also it's community is very vast and solutions are easily available for the problems. Learning of this tool is also very efficient because videos prepared by professionals are very good. Also UiPath team is working on enhancement that is really good, we can see updates very frequently with the new functionalities.

What do you dislike?

Comparison between 2 version of codes. Because this tool doesn't provide such feature as available in BluePrism. Also assignment of global variables is not straight forward, first you have to pass variable till parent file and then you have to pass these variables to child module.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please go through the learning and UiPath community portal because team is really doing great work to enhance the functionalities of this product. Also it's really great to work on this project. Please at least give a try and feel it's features and use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're currently automating a manual process of FNOL(First Notice of Loss) for one of the major UK Insurance company. By automating the process, it has reduces Average Handling Time(AHT) of the process as well as now less business people are required to handle this process. So directly this is giving benefit in terms of finance to the client as well.

"A very easy to learn tool which is constantly being updated"

What do you like best?

We have been using UiPath for quite some time now and we have realized its many benefits such as drag drop activities, a pleasing to see user interface, free community edition etc. The best part about UiPath is that the company itself provides you with academy content which consists of videos, assignments, Certifications etc. All these are for free and can be accessed from anywhere. The tool itself is great too. It has a lot of inbuilt activities, thus making it easy for you to automate.

What do you dislike?

I have completed a lot of certifications but on the Level 3 of UiPath, there is this thing called ReFramework. This is one of the most important part of UiPath. The content in level 3 is very confusing and mind boggling. You won't be able to complete the tutorial/ walk-through without actually searching on the internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a highly recommended tool as it is free and anyone can try it. You should be able to learn everything very fast and enter RPA if you're not already in it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently solving problems like, desktop automation, Entry automation etc.

"Spend less time, get more stuff"

What do you like best?

I liked the way they have an academy and certification process to self-learn the tool. Most of the tools I have used doesn't provide a single learning hands-on. But on the contrary, UiPath has its own well-structured academy. Most of the times when you do a repetitive task like sending daily mail letters or you are an admin of a website to send newsletters, then this tool is must have for you. Tags for this product can be Data Scraping, Automation, Excel Automation, Data Analysis, Task Scheduling and many more. This product can have an endless scope.

What do you dislike?

I disliked the level 3 material. There should be more content on Re Framework. The tool requires more understanding of Re Framework. A noob learning UiPath cannot easily cross Level 3 of the training.

Also, UiPath should have another tool which could work with Linux Environment. There is always a demand. As per me, I can say the product must have a Linux Version also. There are many industry tasks which are done on Linux Environment. Though You can use VMs anywhere and anytime But having a separate framework or can say installer for Linux would be best.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to learn new stuff which will take human force and want to rule in Industry 4.0 in the near future, Join the UiPath League now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use UiPath mostly for scraping the Twitter Data. From twitter, I fetch reviews of the customers for a particular product or service (Like #Zomato). After Scraping the reviews from twitter, I divide them into + and - clusters. Then after using Natural Language Understanding, I bifurcate the +ve and -ve reviews in an excel sheet. Then the excel sheet is used as a dataset for other firms.

Secondly, I do the same thing on Tripadvisor for a place. (Like Udaipur,India)

"UIPath - good RPA solution"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use and speed of the UIPath solutions.

What I believe to be very important is their UIPath Academy program. Although there are already tons of forum posts and the community is very helpful, UIPath Academy is perfect for the newcomers since it has a neat structure and quite a lot of practice examples and exercises.

What do you dislike?

The community edition needs a bit more love. The package has to be put together in a more consistent manner, however it is functional and does its job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UIPath is a good Robotic Process Automation tool which allows companies or even individuals to speed up their workflow in a fun and easy to learn way by cutting down dull and repetitive tasks. At a master level though even more complex tasks can be automated, making UIPath a versatile, powerful and promising tool even for large companies or complex activities such as science or engineering.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since I currently work in a media company, I have identified some automation solutions for repetitive tasks such as 360 movie frame by frame capture. What can I say, the big guys in the industry still have nothing on this, so if UIPath can do the job, great!

"Incredible RPA Tool "

What do you like best?

Its ease of use ,user interface is friendly ,it has self learning tutorials.It provides RPA advance training which provides a smooth path and helps in clearing the certification. All the excel and manual work can be done very smoothly. It provides REFramework which takes care of all the exception handling and orchestrator to remotely run the bots as per your convenience. It provides us with Uipath Connect which is a one stop platform for all your additional needs and resolving the issues. Its recording feature is great and looking up to its upcoming new feature Computer Vision . This tool is very easy and smooth to work with .

What do you dislike?

It could have been visually more good and colourful. There are functionalities which needs to be added to make automation work more easier like execute test method by which we can test how the activity will work on that particular browser or stuff without running the whole workflow. For some of the complex activities visual demonstration of how that activity works should be provided.There are some minor bugs ,like we could not find the voting option for outlook mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The future is bright with this tool .It keeps on constantly upgrading itself with the latest tech and is one on one with the latest industry requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automating the manual repetitive stuffs for the client ,basically web browser automation,sending data from PDF to html Form and then to excel,sending files to FTP and vice versa.It greatly helps in eliminating the manual repetitive tasks.

"Excellent automation tool for banking services applications"

What do you like best?

Provides the capability to create the reports, email those reports to stakeholders and it is very easy to manipulate the reports with UiPath with VBScript. The UiPath studio also provides the capability to work with PDF, Excel, Word and PPT. The studio comes with capability to not only automate windows application and browser application, it also provides feature to automate with citrix or VM. The UiPath also provides an Orchestrator application which helps to create automation jobs to run our automation script at defined time. So it provides similar capability like Jenkins provide. The .xaml files are platform independent so it can be run on any machines and can be used for the future purpose without any hurdle.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes browser extensions doesn't work. This issue occurs while automation web application with various browsers. No other worries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath should work for the stable chrome browser extension.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is the best platform for generating several reports for the banking transactions such as funds transfer, trading orders etc, It provides complete insight for the development of automation flow and it is very easy to integrate various applications while automating the banking application. Previously I used to take data from several dependent applications and used to generate the graphs in excel. However, with single workflow I could generate the report within few seconds. It has really our time and enhanced our productivity in achieving our day to day goal.

"Started studying for fun, now learning to grow."

What do you like best?

About UiPath I love that is really friendly and easy to start developing. It´s great how in simple steps you can so interesting things and as your learning grows, you can solve big problems on your daily basis. For companies I think you can feel the relief of forgeting to do tasks that are necessary but take precious time out of you, you can solve more important tasks and focus on improvements.

What do you dislike?

I would love to have more Academic resources including some basic business day to day cases, not only in english but also in other languages such as Spanish. I think licensing should be more flexible, specially for small and medium businesses ans they are using UiPath for the first time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that if you are yout that your process is automatable, you can do it with UiPath

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think the focus of UiPath is solving really extenuating tasks that most people have to work with on a daily basis. I thing mostly everything that you find monotonous and repetitive can be automated simply.

"A easy entry for RPA world"

What do you like best?

The easy to use user interface makes me from a beginner to a knowledgeable RPA engineer. The online training is very impressive that steps by steps illustrate the use cases that Uipath can be helpful in our daily life.

The drag and drop feature in Uipath Studio is great. Most of the tools can be found easily by just search in the Activity Panel. Most of the tools are self explanatory.

What do you dislike?

Though the training video are very helpful, the lesson recap is too general that as an engineer i cannot reuse the recap materials for my further work.

Besides the training material, I do hope the documentation can be more fruitful. For example, for each attributes give an sample syntax which will be great for a first comer to understand how to use the it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More discussion in forum will make people using Uipath more easy to learn

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have tones of repeating document work for our AP deployment projects. Each time after deploying a new site with AP, our engineer takes time to consolidate documentation. Human have mistake and are easily variate the standard. With the help of uiPath RPA, we can transfer the repeating, boring document work to robot! the time saved can let our engineer can more focus on their implementation work and testing procedure.

"Developer Perspective"

What do you like best?

From my perspective, UIPath is an easy tool to understand and do basic developments with when you're starting on your RPA journey while having an hidden depth when you start to take into account Orchestrator and scalable robots. The academy is really well done with lots of practicals exercices to work after each theorical video.

What do you dislike?

The only thing to dislike regarding UIPath is related to RPA, it's easy to build a robot to help automate a process but the most problematic part is to help understand employees that will use it that you're not replacing them but helping them to win time on low value tasks to spend more time on high value tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time for change management and security/infrastructure analysis before starting with any RPA product to make sure it's matching your company policies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every process with no added value from human intelligence: doing manual tasks as copying data from an excel/word file into a specific system (SAP, CRM applications...)

"Top class platform for Process Automation"

What do you like best?

I've been using UiPath since couple of months at my workplace. We tried using this to automate tedious processes in Oracle E-Business Suite. First things first, What differentiates UiPath from other players is the execution speed of the BOT. A particular task which I tried on other reputed Automation Platform that stands next to UiPath took 15-16 mins to execute a task where as UiPath done the same in 5 mins which is really a blazing pace. Coming to the features and options, no one understands RPA / Automation better than UiPath and that is why they are far superior than any other competitors in the RPA market. I cannot resist mentioning about UiPath support team, they are very courteous and prompt in responding to their users / clients. Overall I would strongly suggest UiPath from a developer perspective & Business users angle too.

What do you dislike?

I infact don't find any dislikes in developers perspective but the complaint I hear from businesses is UiPath is bit costly, but who cares for it when it outperforms other players in performance

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath is fastest evolving platform. They never rest and keep on adding more and more features that are really helpful for its users & Partners aswell

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We tried to automate some repetitive processes in Oracle EBS system. That PoC later on became a product

"User Friendly and interesting topic to work on which can eliminate most of human work."

What do you like best?

Free training videos, trial versions and all documents are helpful in learning RPA and it is very informative.

Main thing is you don't need to have coding skill to perform development and several steps to prepare sequence is helpful. Installation is simple and studio is freely available.

Analyzing errors and fixing the code is very simple as it gives exact errors which is giving trouble to execute the process.

What do you dislike?

Everything seems to be fine and till now haven't found any issues. Data can be backed up so no major issue will occur except our system issues. License is bit costly which is only one thing which can be disliked.

Recommendations to others considering the product

very useful in automating day today simple works and it saves time by automating time consuming works.

Accurate and fast also easy to debug errors. Communicty forum will help for all type of issues and queries which will help to fix any issues which you face during live.

"Easy to use yet powerful"

What do you like best?

Easy to get started but also a very powerful platform for expert users. Great training in the Academy and it's possible to become a certified developer free online.

The open documentation and forums make for great self learning. Haven't yet met a technical challenge that couldn't be solved using UiPath

Also Integrates very easily with web services (APIs) so the functionality can be extended to include Google, Microsoft or Amazon Cloud Services.

What do you dislike?

Debugging of workflows could be improved

- the ability to change variables while debugging (like in Visual Studio)

- view of local variables is not very clear and it's hard to inspect the contents of larger data structures such as Data Tables of large arrays.

- running in debug mode is very slow taking a long time to reach breakpoints.

The ability to schedule robots without purchasing the Orchestrator was recently removed increasing the cost very significantly. Previously we could use the Windows Task Scheduler to start robots but this is no longer supported.

Also with very large workflows it's often hard to get an overview of the whole flow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with a small POC but once the business case is proven ramp up to production as soon as possible. The biggest mistake is being too cautious.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have automated across Finance, IT, Logistics and Retail functions in our brands automating data entry and validation of data.

Automation has improved data quality, reduced lead times and freed up human effort for other tasks.

"RPA is Future"

What do you like best?

Impressed with the free courses provided with quality training.

I enjoy the process of designing visual automation processes.

The software available for free trial period is a god opportunity for everyone to learn the technology.

The results provided after implementing any solution using UiPath RPA design is amazing.

The availability of Studio for small and large professional teams.

What do you dislike?

Support is only available on the UiPath Forum (this means no ticketing support)

Cannot be activated offline.

Since there is no server integration, CE Robots can only be connected to Orchestrator CE 27 - for evaluation and training purposes.

The Community Orchestrator Edition has two free Development type Robots that you can provision.

Would look forward for more courses.

Libraries from nugget package manager will get deleted every time, and the tool asks to activate it.

Local hosting of UIPath Orchestrator server is not provided.

Auto-start feature of the UIRobot.exe is not available.

No:of test robots are limited to 5 (in Orchestrator Community Edition).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trying to handle UiPath on your own without any support might lead to frustration and may lead to delays in business projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

UiPath Community Edition is fully functional version of the platform.

All the topics and the training is covered with the real-time scenarios.

This is why I felt that it is prosperous to have the training from UiPath courses

I received daily recordings which would be useful in my future.

Certification dumps and tool for lifetime access.

24*7 support service that means if you have some queries regarding the tool, just a call away in the solution.

Sample resumes and Job assistance are available, which is free of cost.

"The best tool for Automation and AI"

What do you like best?

Uipath tools are very flexible in working with different type of files. the OCR capability is amazing. it feels like you implementing AI in your workflow. that is really amazing for any developer.

Increased compliance

Best customer experience

Productivity improvement

Good management capabilities

Machine learning capabilities

Image to text conversion

Automating UI Interfaces

Calling SOA, Rest or Web services

Integrations between multiple types of operations

Sending emails or reading emails

Automating enterprise applications.

Interacting with databases

Reading and writing different documents

etc…

UiPath has embedded the capability to trigger python scripts, which means it can even trigger machine learning models, now bringing them in to business process automation leads to different possibilities. Robots can now predict and take decisions wherever required and bring in the data science capabilities. In addition UiPath had introduced Natural Language processing ( NLP ) which will make reading and understanding of documents/emails more possible.

UiPath with its centralized management server, allows organizations to deploy and manage bots to perform the activities automatically. It also has one stop place for audit and analytics. Ability to control bots from central server provides better security and management capabilities.

What do you dislike?

1. I get stuck some time working with the UI element. accuracy is not 100% for UI element. working with pdf is also not a good experience . acuarrcy is not 100% .

"Having 2.9 years of experience in UiPath Automation"

What do you like best?

Easy to automate , easy to find the solutions for unknown issues in the UIpath forum where as Blue prism does not have this facility which takes lot of time in resolving the issues , developer friendly,Can get the selectors easily and takes less time to automate using RE FRAMEWORK as some of the exceptions has been handled in it and the using of work queues makes easier .Continuous updates and support on UIPATH tool makes easier to automate saving a lot of time. Uipath is a developer friendly with the simple user interface which can make wonders in learning and automating.

What do you dislike?

In order to perform some operations in large excels we need to use Macros that some uipath activities because the uipath is giving error as RPC server unavailable so because of this we had to use VBA code just calling them using uipath. Some operations in Excels like clicks are not responding properly that is making the less stable and and because of some selectors in SAP is also not reliable so had to use scripts to run those.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to learn and gets support easily from Uipath forum which makes less effort in resolving the issues.Easy to automate .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Handling large excels and generating reports on hourly bases which generates lot many reports and reducing the FTE errors in preparing documents and generating reports for approximately 300 to 500 accounts by doing quick validations.

"My Right Choice : UiPath"

What do you like best?

Unlike other booming technologies, RPA made a huge difference in the terms of growth, the UiPath community is helping a lot to the learner, boosting enthusiasm and encouragement. Liked how UiPath considering community ideas and implementing the impossibilities. I liked how flexible enough to customise options and the contributions from the community are fab. The recent releases like Computer vison, work flow comparer etc are encouraging.

What do you dislike?

When it comes to learning, we love everything, the new or change brings the difference in us, we can't put it as dislike but we can say like UiPath is not advertising the actual power what they have, the unique qualities are not shining.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product over other RPA tools for mostly for the developers switching from DotNet background which helps in the developing custom activities, and also for the testing background peers who have very quick gathering abilities. Also, anyone can try and succeed to work on this as UiPath have the best community support. Cheers

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a developer, we are working for distribution Service provider company which helped them save the days of work and reduce a lot of wastage in manpower, now they can channelize their resources in a more productive way. It was a great experience to help the business.

"A smart intelligent automation tool with capable of automating process in different sectors"

What do you like best?

Updation during each period makes developers to stay alive in the technology. First RPA tool to introduce a community version which would encourage people to learn new things in RPA. Rather than just staying within the boundary of RPA tool, it is capable to extend more wider as a cognitive tool as well.

What do you dislike?

Development of any RPA solution using UiPath is very efficient and flexible. But at the same time, the testing is very difficult. Debugging feature of UiPath is quite difficult to understand and there is no option that we could go and start from any step rather it needs to start from very first step of the process which would again a time consuming factor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend UiPath to others. It doesn't limit your skills in programming language instead it had more extensive feature on it, hence we can utilize those to inject our code and it is versatile to any programming language even though the technology that UiPath is build under .net.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Processes we automated not only under the financial domain but also non financial domain too. It proves that RPA is capable of implementing in almost every clients. It really helps human to do better jobs rather than doing daily same duties. It Makes life easier. The Dashboard that shows in UiPath orchestrator would really helps for business to calculate their return of investment and all. Again it would shows a brief idea that number of robots utilized.

"Consultation and data collection of Maritime Freight (Logistics)"

What do you like best?

We had a ship region inquiry process (sea freight provided by the company), where various information was verified and then stored in an excel file. It turns out that a person had to take line by line the file and enter the site to seek the information, this daily and more than once a day, so that the Logistics team could update the indicators and control of freight and materials. With UiPath, it was possible to fully automate the process, the Robot looped through the file, accessed the site and returned all information separated by ship name, then the robot saved the file and sent it in Gmail for the whole Logistics team, that is, the robot managed to make the interface of Excel, Google and maritime website so as to generate a very large economy of staff effort on a daily basis!

What do you dislike?

Some workflows and components of the Robot failed to update the systems and browsers used, but the problem was solved by making the logic "dynamic" in the Robot code, in general there are no problems to be highlighted, only here in Brazil UiPath still is at an early stage of maturation, we are very much looking forward to growing the use of the solution in large companies and spreading the world of robots

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a fantastic tool, you can automate without necessarily mastering "programming", UiPath acts at the level of graphical interface and allows automations without any changes in infrastructure and other "huge" changes in standard systems. The tool can interface with infinite applications in an easy way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned in the good outputs, we saved the work of one person (daily) who was focused on updating the worksheet and warn team every 3 hours

"Uipath - Best RPA tool"

What do you like best?

Uipath shines when it comes to Citrix automation. It is highly reliable for Citrix automation as compared to other RPA tools. Recording option is also better in Uipath as compared to AA and BP. I have worked in AA as well and I really feel the workflows created in Uipath are more reliable and accurate. Uipath provides very good community where we can discuss our queries with the best in the business. So for me UIpath is best RPA tool in the market.

What do you dislike?

I feel good coding knowledge is required in Uipath as compared to other tools. So it becomes little difficult to understand and work in Uipath. However it is very efficient in logic building because we can use .Net functions to create even the complex of logics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Uipath is the best tool in the market for RPA implementation. It has very robust and reliable solutions as comapared to other RPA tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problem where we need to read the purchase orders in PDF format from different customers and the read fields to be set in a particular excel file and them out of which we need to take only few fields and create a new template to feed this data in new template which needs to be used as an input for SAP. We are processing it for 29 customers as of now and targeting to add 30 more customers in coming months. This is very complex process where we had to work with folders, files and PDF files to generate the final template to use it as SAP input.

There are around 1000 Purchase orders per day and it takes whole day for to process them manually so with RPA in place it takes 3 hours to complete the whole process which saves a lot of manual work with high accuracy and efficiency.
