The technology to build Digital Workforce

What do you like best?

UiPath is a developer friendly RPA platform. Availability of the UiPath Community Edition along with forum, academy and documentation at no cost is a major step towards building RPA Developement Skillsets in the industry to address the increasing demand in the businesses for the Digital Workforce. UiPath is improving every release, and with the Marketplace, tech/business specific packages and more AI/ML abilities, it is set to be a RPA tool of first choice. Great steps by UiPath.

What do you dislike?

Workflow building needs more sophisticted IDE and modeller. Debugger & Workflow Model Analytics are not good enough but they are now coming in in 2018.2.Focus on reliability and performance during the production run would be the key.

Recommendations to others considering the product

UiPath is a maturing platform to build Digital Workforce for businesses (and for individuals) by automating automations primarily at the user interface layer. It is getting better every release, product develelopment roadmap looks promising, with the Marketplace coming in and with more inbuilt abilities from AL/ML side and improvement in the Studio & Orchestrator, UiPath is certainly in the right direction to provide a comprehensive platform to build digital workforce.

Citrix Automation

What do you like best?

Is the best RPA to work in citrix that I have tried

What do you dislike?

In some ways the recognition of characters is not good

Recommendations to others considering the product

have careful when they made some update because sometimes they made an update and something can change in your code. For example once time ago I had some issues with sending email, as I had in other Virtual Machine a old version of Uipath I could copy some packages that had changed for the new uptaded so The email worked good again but with the older package and this information I could find in the forum because somebody else Had the same issue than me.

I recommend always if you have a problem or issue before to ask, try to find the solution in the forum because probably somebody else already had the same issue than you and found the solution. I did always that first and if I didn't find the answer I write a question in the forum and almost all times somebody help me.

Also I recommend first go to the Academy and study all the material that is there, is so useful and will be then easy develop anything that you need. All the information that you need to know is there.

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

selling process, we need to process a lot of information. The benefits are that the robot do not make any mistake to enter the information as a person could do

What Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Useful and powerful tool to uplift people's value and transform current operation model

What do you like best?

UiPath is making automation easier to everyone and very powerful to automate complex processes with lots of useful functions.

What do you dislike?

UiPath can be hacked and may have potential risk

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most of the people in the market feel UiPath is easier and cheaper than other RPA tools like Blue Prism and Automation Anywhere. They may have the perception that UiPath is simple and not as good as the other two.

I want to say they are wrong. Many people in the markert (China market) treat UiPath and even RPA in a totally wrong way and they even don't know the real value and potential power of UiPath. Try to learn all the things of UiPath and think more about business transformation and people empowerment.

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

Save manual work effort, aviod human errors, improve efficiency and customer satisfaction. Most important is that UiPath(RPA) can strongly drive process improvement, standardization and centrilzation.

The most cost effective and accurate solution we have used to date.

What do you like best?

Its ability to work with any application and process. To date, we have not found an application UiPath could not work with. That includes a multitude of ERP solutions, desktop apps and older terminal screen solutions. There are many other attributes including ease and speed of design. Ability to re-use common workflow sections (snippets) and most importantly, the ability to "harden" workflows so they operate every day. UiPath also has an excellent online user forum plus free basic training.

What do you dislike?

Not all implementation documentation is available online and there needs to be more implementation bulletins sent to partners and existing customer (these are in addition to the online & release notices sent regularly).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Has the best of many worlds - provides attended and unattends bots, therefore caters for 24/7 backgraound processing through to contact centres. Provides comprehensive process activities but allows users to also use code. Quick to learn and provide benefits.

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

With UiPath, we helped many companies across a wide range of industry types find "leaking" revenue, improve accuracy, comprehensively realign & document processes, improve quality & accuracy and importantly, add value to the companies stakeholders - internal & external.

Have a great experience with Uipath and challenges me to achieve further programming skill

What do you like best?

-easy to use and friendly user

-easy to assign variable and the connection between sequence is easy and reliable

-easy to make an automaton because of the recording function, its mimic the work of human and make it easier to automate also the code is common like using vb.net javascript

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the robot will not responding due to bigger xaml file and many functions recorded in robot.

Sometimes the robot if any update from uipath the variable is also changes. It needs to be check again so the robot running well. Also the Uipath sometimes is not working properly because of something. I dont know about how this error can be happen but the solution is to delete the activities and make the activities again in sequence or flowchart

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes i will recommend Uipath to others because Uipath is easy to use and the GUI is pleasant to use. Also Uipath is more cheaper than any automaton RPA from other competitor

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

Uipath provides a better solution for my company to make an report more easier using SAP also excel. With UIpath its really speed up the performance to our company. Uipath also help me to automate with access database file because my company needs to read the database file and compile it into excel. After that the uipath also make it easier for us to automate the website we need to get the data and its very simple to use

Useful and easy to understand Robotic Process Automation tool

What do you like best?

Providing business (and sometimes bit tech-savvy) users the ability to create their own automated processes and see the benefits immediately. Although RPA tooling is on the market for quite some time now (and clicking scripts even longer), UiPath makes it accessible to a wide audience.

Compared to some other solutions on the market, UiPath is easy to understand thanks to the visual and modern user interface. Likewise, processes are easy to deploy to the orchestrator.

A big contributor to the lowered entry-level, is their good online learning environment. The online learning academy provides you with the basics and works to a n automated process test using the key elements of UiPath. What I also like, is that there is an open forum (/online community) where you can ask questions and interact.

UiPath provides a flexible pricing model, which allows you to start small (e.g. pilot for one department) and then scale up.

Good efforts were made with the development framework; giving you a basis to start from.

Fast development cycle; you will have some functional in the short term, automate a part of a process and expand from there.

What do you dislike?

Within this tool you can refer to other automation workflows. It should be more transparent how other workflows are utilized (references), which data sources and variables are used and overall governance and maintenance of the 'in development' and deployed work processes. Security and compliancy needs extra efforts for the solution to be sustainable in large enterprises.

It should be simplified how licenses are shared amongst environments and tenants. This is important for enterprises to optimize license costs and provide flexibility.

Sometimes the run-time of the robots is slowed down by unknown reasons. You then need to play around with the settings extensively through trial-and-error to get it fixed. This is important, as with high volume transactions the increased lead time will add up.

Dealing with exceptions and making the automation robust & intelligent. A basic example is that the selectors are sometimes not robust enough, meaning you need to spend a significant amount of time making them accurate, or that screen changes. Hoping for AI features in the future saying something like “.. well, it seems the process quits at activity X regularly. The selector is probably missing component X to be reliable, do you want to test it?”

The basic documentation is there and is being discussed in the online learning. However, explaining how the more complex activities should be used needs more attention.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download the free trial and try it! See whether you or your team can make something out of it. Ask the technology vendors and partners for a demo for the tool. Of course, there are assessments on the market done by analysts, ranking RPA vendors against specific criteria (technical, integration features, security etc) but it really depends on your use case which one is best.

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

Repetitive manual labor and integrating information systems. RPA tools are best at high volume repetitive work, which is often the case with (financial) data processing. Currently being used a.o. for monthly financial (F&A) closing, reporting on WIP and overdue invoices. Project management and forecasting; retrieval of project information in automatic manner.

Quality has gone up (first time right), lead time for processing the request has gone down, employees are more satisfied . There is more a sense of innovation and being a digital company, as the automation efforts are visible.

Looking forward to a market place where you can simply buy templates of the shelf, can look at best practices and share ideas. Reuse of material, like shown with the UiPath development framework, is a good way to speed up deployment.
