Good support, easy licensing, and useful automation capabilities
We wanted to build automation solutions for our clients as well as for improving the efficiency of our internal processes. This platform provided a solution without the complicated licensing model that is prevalent in other RPA tools. Furthermore, the containers orchestrated on its platform are Python-based, meaning it's developer-friendly and one doesn't have to go about learning an altogether different tool. Also, the ability to create separate organizations on this platform makes it easier to bill each of the clients separately. Then there is the vault feature which allows for storing sensitive data and the code can then fetch it from there.

It's easier for beginners to learn, and the learning curve is shorter compared to other tools
UiPath could improve machine learning for its Document Understanding module. We have to train that model to pull the data from different digitized or non-digitized documents. The classification could be improved, but I'm not sure how they could make it better. Sometimes, we get an error when we are developing something in the UiPath Studio for Salesforce. It gives me an error when I create one line of code, but I don't get the error when I make the same line of code again. We also get some bugs when UiPath adds new features. If we're developing multiple activities on one core, it can slow the response times a bit, and it will take more time when we try to download the dependencies or other packages. If we're doing UI-related automation, updates to the website might remove a specific UI element, and it affects the code. That's a drawback to using UiPath for a website.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"It offers high scalability and enables automation in ways that haven't been possible before."
"The product has a valuable business process automation feature."
"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."
"The solution is based on Python which makes it very valuable."
"The price is good."
"The process execution and all features are very good."
"It's easy to deploy bots via the API helper in Control Room. Robocorp's debugging features are also robust. It shows you a lot of data."
"Robocorp is based on Python, so you can use Python scripts and create libraries for your use cases. Building libraries and custom scripts for a particular client and general use cases is easy. We can reuse those scripts for other clients, so we start seeing benefits quickly."
"The orchestrator functionality is good."
"Our stability is great. You rarely have any downtime, once you build it."
"The most valuable feature is UiPath's integration with the AI chatbot for automating customer service in our web applications. We directly integrate ChatGPT to talk to the customer because it performs better than our old Python-based chatbot, which was really slow."
"The Excel activities are valuable. We can do browser automation through other sites or tools, but for Excel, using tools or options like Selenium or JavaScript is quite complicated because we have to import the file from the JSQL or other things, whereas, in UiPath, we get direct activities. We can directly perform the operations by using the activities. We can directly apply logic to it, and that is how UiPath makes Excel automation easy. This is why I like it."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to view my own activity and customize it on the platform."
"In my particular job function, Automation Hub has been invaluable. We have set up an Automation Hub specific to what we need within our team to be able to solicit automation ideas from our business users. It helps us to be able to review those ideas, meet with our functions and ask them more questions, and build our value case as well, so Automation Hub has been huge for us."
"The steps, documentation, and information are pretty straightforward when it comes to the product, so there is no ambiguity."
"I like that UiPath makes life easier through its multiple features. It's easy to use through its Excel functionality, a basic application you need. UiPath also has many connectors available, so using the solution is easier."
 

Cons

"An additional feature I'm looking for in Robocorp is SAP automation."
"It would be better if it were more user-friendly for non-technical users. It would be better if they had some drag-and-drop features to create logic."
"I preferred the user interface in the older versions. When troubleshooting, it's sometimes hard to find details about where things went wrong. You need to search a little harder. It takes more clicks to get to where you want to go. It can be somewhat confusing. When you run a process that fails, it takes you somewhere you may not expect."
"The standard libraries in Robocorp should be more advanced."
"The platform's documentation could be better."
"Robocorp is still in development, so most of the keywords are a bit confusing. I have to alter lots of automation steps between processing and development. However, Selenium is due for an update soon, and Robcorp is addressing some of the limitations caused by the previous Selenium version."
"I don't like the complexity of deployment."
"They should fully develop Robocorp Studio because it would attract a lot of people to the Robocorp platform."
"The initial setup was very complex. We had the data, but we had to streamline it. You can build a robot in 30 minutes, but the robot needs to get the data correctly."
"Orchestrator needs to have better integration to include business users."
"I think the only issue we have faced is with the upgrade compatibility."
"UiPath can probably work on improving the AI features. We tried UiPath's AI functionality in our automation program. We did some research on that, but right now, nothing is in production. When we did some research, we weren't getting the expected results. We weren't completely satisfied with the results, so we put it aside. It could be a drawback on our side in terms of learning the tool."
"We have to change our account representative every year, which is frustrating. We have to re-explain our business every year."
"We can not exceed ten records in the UiPath database because the UiPath architecture will become extremely slow and not respond."
"The path forward is probably to tie this all together in a platform and look at the workflow automation"
"On the investment side, it is a huge investment, especially with the current situation in Sri Lanka. If they can reduce the price or provide affordable packages, it will be very helpful."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price is cheaper than other competitors. I would rate the cost as one out of five."
"The pricing is fine."
"The solution is a very affordable price."
"Robocorp is much better in terms of pricing compared to UiPath."
"You don't have to pay for the license. You have to pay for the time you use it."
"It's a cost-effective solution."
"In terms of licenses, there is a return on investment in that area."
"The product has good pricing."
"Compared to other automation tools, UiPath is expensive."
"The pricing differs on the requirements. If there is a huge purchase, then we get a discount. There is not a fixed pricing of the product."
"There are different licensing options and you should study which one better suits your company's needs."
"Overall, the model is fine except for AI units. It is usage-based, which makes sense if you are processing documents, and you have one unit per page. It is the hosting cost of the models where there are issues, so we are running into potentially designing poor solutions because we are having to say, "If the documents are very similar but different enough, even though you would prefer to use two models, maybe consider not using two because of the hosting costs.""
"UiPath is expensive."
"It's the same as what you would see on any of their list prices. There is also a corporate discount because of scale. Overall, we think it was a competitive price offering. They were the cheapest out of the three, so that's why we went with them."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"The pricing and licensing are okay. It's quite affordable."
