We performed a comparison between Pega Robotic Process Automation and UiPath based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"We have a very large operational team and we are able to avoid mistakes and ensure accuracy and speed using Pega."
"Pega Robotic Process Automation's most valuable feature is that it is robust. Additionally, they have plenty of online documents that are good and Pega Academy is helpful, they are doing a great job. They give training on practical use cases. They take domain use cases, and they are great."
"It was very smooth and very seamless to create automations."
"Its stability has been good."
"The initial setup is pretty easy and quite fast."
"They are leaders in the same industry."
"The workflow system is very intuitive."
"The low-code/no-code development aspect of the solution is great."
"In terms of the ease of building automation, from what I've seen, I'm very impressed. We're using a partner. We built the COE and everything that they're developing right now. Obviously, we're just starting down this path. This means we're going to go work with a partner while we're developing our own guys. We can get to market quicker."
"The goal of the project was to get 75% of our invoices done with no human intervention. We actually hit 90%."
"One of the most important features of UiPath is the transactional basis of how it works. I can see which ones are successful, which ones are not, and then have the bot take care of 98% of it. Our staff only deal with the exceptions and this has led to greater job satisfaction."
"It has reduced human error because there would be some different document types. It's able to detect multiple types versus a user finding one document type when there could be multiple document types that are associated with a letter, while the user is browsing over it that can be missed in the second document type. But when you're looking at machine learning and at the text, it'll be able to easily pick out those keywords from a document that has multiple document types."
"I feel comfortable with UiPath. The thing that I like most is that UiPath has a very large community and a large ecosystem. So, it is easy to connect with other applications or platforms."
"Excel automation is extremely reliable. Excel integration is one of the top features that I have been using. We also have a feature called Document Understanding for processing the PDF format of an invoice by a bot. It has the capability to scan an invoice and then pick out the required fields, such as the name of the vendor, the details of the products being sent, or the cost of the product."
"The stability so far has been good."
"The product has freed up employee time. It’s likely freed up more than a day, an average of 12 hours at least. That’s 12 hours per day. It allows our employees to focus on more high-value work."
"Pega Robotic Process Automation scalability is too low."
"There have been some scenarios where the bot was not able to replace some of the controls and could not recognize and personalize the task we wanted to automate."
"Excel connectors need to be improved as there are a few connectors in Excel areas."
"They have tied the deployment with the Pega BPM product, the robot manager. You need to have the BPM installed."
"I would like to see an enhanced auditing feature included."
"The orchestration needs to be better."
"The development experience needs to be improved."
"What I don't like that much in Pega Robotic Process Automation is its monitoring tool because that tool is tightly connected with the platform. If the Pega team can deploy the monitoring tool separately, so that it's a separate solution altogether, then that would be good because currently, if you have to use the monitoring tool, then that means you have to use the Pega Robotic Process Automation platform. The initial setup for Pega Robotic Process Automation also needs improvement because it is complex. The only additional feature I'd like to see in the solution is for the monitoring tool to be a stand-alone rather than being tightly coupled with the Pega platform. Looking at the current features of Pega Robotic Process Automation concerning application automation, it covers most of my needs currently."
"UiPath has a built-in functionality called Computer Vision to extract values from a PDF... The cost is based on how many documents we are using Computer Vision on. That makes it difficult to estimate ROI."
"UiPath should take several steps forward to be prepared for this competition and create differentiation with capabilities that Microsoft does not have. The innovation within UiPath is going to be very, very crucial. However, the most important thing is clear the differentiation in the messaging."
"While I like the Academy a lot, it could maybe go deeper into some of the topics."
"Some of the licenses, such as for Document Understanding, are a little bit expensive, and we hope that they will reduce the prices over time. Apart from this, I don't have anything to improve."
"One of the products where I would definitely see a need for improvement would be a Task Capture."
"UiPath should improve the test case criteria in future versions because the test cases are not well-designed. I feel everything is fine other than that."
"The graphics could always be improved."
"In exception handling, wherever exception occurs, the out arguments are not being passed. It would be good if there is a way to pass the out arguments."
