We performed a comparison between Robocorp 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.
"The price is good."
"The process execution and all features are very good."
"I have worked with UiPath and Automation Anywhere previously. Robocorp offers an improved development style and support as well as flexibility of its tools. You can easily develop custom libraries in Robocorp."
"if you are a business user, even if you don't have a technical team, you can install the second version of the Community edition, which is StudioX. This is specifically made for business people who don't have a lot of ideas about technicalities. This is a great feature."
"The desktop Assistant tool provides a personal automation launchpad so that you can easily access and run automations. That's important because you don't have to go to someone every time you face a problem, or every time you have to run an automation process. It helps make you independent so that you can do your own tasks."
"UiPath has definitely reduced the percentage of human errors that we have in our processes. In our system, all of the bots follow our best practices so there is a very small chance of error."
"It has a very easy drag and drop process and logic base setup. Previous projects were taking a lot of time. However, when we used UiPath on the same projects, instead of a process/task taking a day, it was now taking anywhere from 10 minutes to five hours."
"This solution has reduced manual effort on our part. It's removed repetitive tasks which do not bring any value to the company."
"Time-saving is the biggest area that has improved for us. We had users spending lots of time trying to get data from a system and then creating a file that was going to be used for our auditing purposes, which then gets submitted online. We definitely found some issues where an end-user was pulling data from different sources and then storing that data with lots of human touching that created issues."
"The solution has helped our organization save costs. It’s likely saved us about $10 million."
"It's definitely saving time for employees. One of our most successful automations frees them up from doing an entire task. Their quality of life has had a big improvement. It also happens to save a lot of hours. It saves a little over 2,000 hours annually."
"An additional feature I'm looking for in Robocorp is SAP automation."
"We use the latest version of the process studio and it takes up a lot of CPU storage. In our case, this has been up to 14 GB of storage."
"I don't like the complexity of deployment."
"The should be more out-of-the-box models if UiPath keeps adding on."
"The stability needs to be improved, as does the scalability."
"The forum's a great place, however, for a new person, it was better some years ago. It's grown so fast, and it's not that as nimble. Previously, if you asked questions and the response time was quicker."
"To improve this solution, there could be increased transparency over licensing and consistency regarding what it costs for on-prem and what it costs for the cloud."
"The license model changing every year can be a little bit frustrating. It's hard sometimes when things go from being robot-based to being runtime-based."
"The update process has resulted in several small issues for us. Sometimes when you update, there are several lines that are not included in the package. This kind of technical error, even though it's small, has to improve."
"The stability of this solution does depend upon the applications we are using."
"It is a little confusing at first. I came from Blue Prism where you have one dashboard and very little jumping back and forth. In Orchestrator, you have menus, and there is a lot of jumping between tabs and sub-tabs to get to the specific information, but once you learn that, it is pretty intuitive. There is just that initial learning curve if you're coming from another system. Blue Prism does everything in the one pane, and even though UiPath is neatly laid out, you just got to learn how they laid it out."
Most robotic process automation initiatives fail to get off the ground because the current drag-and-drop offerings are expensive and frustrating for developers. Robocorp is a Python-based open source stack for automating applications and processes. Automate any task you can imagine with hundreds of keywords and libraries with performance, scalability, and security built-in. Our cloud robots can run on any platform from any machine, and scale horizontally to ensure mission-critical processes complete as efficiently as possible. Getting started is free, and our resource-based pricing ensures your costs are always straightforward - no matter how much your implementation grows.
UiPath is a popular RPA tool that helps users automate manual and redundant tasks as well as other business processes. The platform is open-source, and is most commonly used for performing PDF automation, web automation, Citrix automation, and Windows desktop automation.
