Pre-built integration with our scanning solution gave us the ability to automate processes, and we went from two hours to 15 minutes and from 600 people to 150 people
Pros and Cons
  • "It had pre-built integration with the scanning solution that we use called Kodak Alaris. They use our current scanners to scan in the documents, and then they have the software that allows you to load those documents right into UiPath Orchestrator. That gave us the ability to automate those processes."
  • "It took quite a bit of time to understand some of the document types. Some of the documents were already pre-built, but some of the documents were new, and it took us quite a bit of time to get it to train on those documents. If there was any variation, we had to re-train it. It took longer than expected."

What is our primary use case?

We're doing mortgage loan processing. When people are applying for a new loan, we're using it to gather all loan documents and validate the property ownership and do a title search. We then put the loan documents in a package.

We are using its latest version.

How has it helped my organization?

It used to take two hours to take all these documents and load them in, and now, it takes 15 minutes. So, we went from two hours to 15 minutes. We're able to process a significantly larger number of documents in a much shorter time.

What is most valuable?

It had pre-built integration with the scanning solution that we use called Kodak Alaris. They use our current scanners to scan in the documents, and then they have the software that allows you to load those documents right into UiPath Orchestrator. That gave us the ability to automate those processes.

What needs improvement?

It took quite a bit of time to understand some of the document types. Some of the documents were already pre-built, but some of the documents were new, and it took us quite a bit of time to get it to train on those documents. If there was any variation, we had to re-train it. It took longer than expected.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Its stability is very good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is enterprise-ready. So far, we are very happy with everything that we have been working with. It is designed for enterprises. 

We're going to continue to use it for the next five years. It is automating the roles. It has to do more with validation than anything else. The users like it a lot, and we're very happy with it so far. 

How are customer service and support?

We have a third party for support, and they are very good. They are very quick to support.

How was the initial setup?

All in all, it was pretty straightforward. We had to bring in third-party consultants to get it going. We were expecting that, but the costs were a little bit more than what we were thinking at the time.

From beginning to end, it probably took about four months. It included everything that we were trying to do. We got started right away, but the actual deployment took a little bit longer than what we thought it was going to take.

We've moved from different versions over time, and we were able to do it pretty seamlessly. We had another product called Automation Anywhere, and that took a lot more effort to do the migration. So, we were happy with the implementation time that UiPath took.

What about the implementation team?

We took the help of a third party. Our experience with them was good. It was more expensive than we thought it was going to be, but overall, it was good.

For its deployment and maintenance, we have a team of four people in the house, and then we have five people outside who are actually continuing to do maintenance in terms of upgrades and new forms as they come up.

What was our ROI?

We have probably saved about $6 million using the product. We were going to have to hire about 600 people to be able to process the loans, but we only had to hire 150 people. We didn't have to hire 450 people, which was pretty significant.

We did pay more than what we thought we were going to have to pay upfront. We had a third party for implementation, and the cost turned out to be about twice of what we thought it was going to be upfront. So, instead of one month, it took us three months for an ROI, but we got significant returns. 

The hardware requirements to manage this was also a little bit more than we thought it was going to be, but our ROI was so high that in a way we earned it back. So, even though the costs were more than what we were expecting, the return was much better than we were expecting. We were supposed to go from two hours to one hour. That was the goal, and we went from two hours to 15 minutes. The benefit was more than what we were expecting.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Its actual cost turned out to be about two times more than what we thought it was going to be upfront. There were hardware costs that we were not expecting. Some of the server costs and things of that nature were higher than what we were expecting but based upon the return, it was a net.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Blue Prism, Datamatics, and Signavio. We just looked at the market and how many references they had that were in our market space. We were able to talk to a significant number of companies that were already using these products for the same thing, and that's what we based our decision on.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise doing the homework upfront and seeing what the full impact is going to be. You should not just look at task automation; you should also look at the full process. That's because when you make a change in one area, you need to consider how that's going to affect another area in your organization. You may get a big benefit in one area, and then all of a sudden, you have to change the way you're doing business to take advantage of that. If you correct a bottleneck in one area, you might still have another area that's a bottleneck, so you need to look at the full process. This is something that we learned in general from our experience. As we were fixing different things and automating different things, there was another bottleneck down the road. We went from doing 10 a minute to 100 a minute, but when we went to the next process, we could only do 10 a minute. It didn't really make a difference unless we fixed that one too. That's why you have to look at the full end-to-end process.

I would like them to work on the process mining solution that they have to give us a better picture of the full end-to-end process. That was what was really missing. They do have a process mining solution that you can run up front, but it wasn't very good. We ended up running into things thinking why didn't we know that. If we had a better tool upfront to give us the bigger picture, it would've saved us a lot of time and effort down the road.

I would rate it an eight out of 10.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Time to market is very quick - my team has produced bots in as little as two days
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable features are the ease of use and the UI. It's much better compared to all the competitor applications out there. I've literally used all the applications that are in the market, and UiPath has been, by far, the best. Another prime factor is that scales up horizontally and is on the cloud, on AWS cloud. That's where we host our processes and our services. That connectivity feature, the availability, is a primary winning element."
  • "My organization has been pretty happy with the amount of scalability that it has provided. One bot can literally run multiple processes and process millions of records."
  • "The Citrix automation - the way that it's fragile right now - if that could be made stronger and more stable, that would be icing on the cake for UiPath."

What is our primary use case?

I work in the healthcare domain. We've automated a lot of financial and invoice-types of business processes, bringing in efficiencies in terms of saving time spent by field representatives in processing requests.

How has it helped my organization?

The time saved is anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes, on average, because a human would have at least that long, and up to 20 minutes, to do these tasks, while a bot takes just 4.3 seconds, which is huge efficiency.

Also, the time to market is very quick compared to other applications out there. RPA is very quick. My team has produced bots in as little as two days, from discovery to development and go-live.

Performance benefits rate a nine out of ten, because of a Citrix automation fragility concern. Otherwise, I would have given a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

It's easy to use and it's easy to host.

The most valuable features are the ease of use and the UI. It's much better compared to all the competitor applications out there. I've literally used all the applications that are in the market, and UiPath has been, by far, the best.

Another prime factor is that it scales up horizontally and is on the cloud, on AWS cloud. That's where we host our processes and our services. That connectivity feature, the availability, is a primary winning element.

What needs improvement?

The Citrix automation - the way that it's fragile right now - if that could be made stronger and more stable, that would be icing on the cake for UiPath.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

When it comes to stability, it all depends upon what kind of touchpoints it has with third-party applications. Citrix automation is always a little bit fragile compared to non-Citrix automations, especially with UiPath. But I'm sure the 2018.3 version, which is going to come out, is going to fix that. I'm hoping that it fixes the issue.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is tremendous. My organization has been pretty happy with the amount of scalability that it has provided. One bot can literally run multiple processes, and process millions of records.

How is customer service and technical support?

I feel customer support can be improved a little bit. I raise service requests day in and day out with UiPath. Compared to the competitors, support is very good. Still, the average SLA is around three to four days, which I think can be reduced to one to two business days. It would be very good if UiPath Support could do that.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved in the initial setup: discovery, setup, and development stabilization, end-to-end. It is straightforward. It's a no-nonsense, plug-and-play type of application where you don't have to code something for it to start up and work. It's already available there. All you have to do is build flows in Visio or BPMN flows, as they can be directly consumed by UiPath. And then the solution is working.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It costs much less and it does much more than the competitors' solutions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The only solution that is close to UiPath is Automation Anywhere.

What other advice do I have?

There are three points that I always have my clients identify to determine if this is a good approach for them:

  1. Does your process have a lot of manual steps involved?
  2. Are they repetitive in nature?
  3. Are they rules-based?

If these three are checked off as "yes," then they qualify for RPA. It's as simple as that.

Regarding UiPath RPA Academy training, I myself am certified by UiPath at all levels of certification which are offered by the LMS system. All my workforce is certified by UiPath as well. It's very intuitive and very easy to follow through and complete the courses, compared to the competitors.

In terms of staff required for development and maintenance with UiPath, for a small to medium-scale bot, we have around two developers working at any given point in time. Developers, here, also play the role of testers because it's an Agile implementation and a single person wears multiple hats. So there is one business analyst, there are two developers, and that's pretty much the team. We are very lean.

The important criteria when selecting an RPA vendor are the scalability, stability, and hosting and licensing costs. Hosting and licensing costs come at the end of the list because people are more concerned about whether the solution works or not. They always want to see a proof of concept and see that it's working. Then they get that sense of trust.

I've been using RPA for almost five years now, pretty much from the time where North America did not know what RPA was. UiPath has stood out and exceeded expectations, always. It's the best. Hands-down, go with UiPath. Don't even think about others.

It is easy to implement and use to provide training to people
Pros and Cons
  • "It is easy to use and quick to install."
  • "With this solution, it has a more hands on GUI-based feature."
  • "It is easy to implement and use to provide training to people."
  • "The steps, documentation, and information are pretty straightforward when it comes to the product, so there is no ambiguity."
  • "There are certain areas that we need to see improvements: performance, efficiency, and complex environment."
  • "We need to be able to span across a bigger complex network. Right now, the decision-making is based on a five step rule. It would like to see this increased, so we can take on bigger productions and work more efficiently."

What is our primary use case?

We work in the healthcare industry. We are trying to establish a use case for our company to speed up our processes. Because with FDA regulations, there are a lot of processes to follow. There are a lot of phases of implementation to follow. For example, if you want a drug for cancer, a lot of time is spent, but it takes more time to release to the market because of all the manual labor intensive work which is happening. 

Therefore, I am working with legislators and the FDA to see where we can cut paths. There's a lot of scope for automation. UiPath is one of the best product for this.

How has it helped my organization?

UiPath is user-friendly, so when we are working with the customer, if they want something immediately they will jump in. We don't have to give the level of estimation, then how much price will be (quote) at all. They don't really talk about the price or the time. They say, "There is a problem," and they are very excited about solving that problem. This excitement is good, and that's what our CEO has always said, "Immersing yourself is always important."

Everyone feels positive when they want to talk about RPA and what they want to do. When we go and explain how easy and adaptable it is, people are happy. It is not complex, because we are simplifying the way how they use it. 

If you're able to discuss and give the layout and the architecture purposeful meaning along with the training, then people can adapt to it well.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to implement and use to provide training to people. With a lot of other tools, it is more about scripting. Whereas with this solution, it has a more hands on GUI-based feature.

It is easy to use and quick to install.

What needs improvement?

With every product that we have, there are still improvements needed in some areas. There are certain areas that we need to see improvements: performance, efficiency, and complex environment. We need to work with the product manager on these, and say, "Now that everything has met the industry standards, there's a way to go."

We need to be able to span across a bigger complex network. Right now, the decision-making is based on a five step rule. It would like to see this increased, so we can take on bigger productions and work more efficiently. Also, the performance has to be improved in some areas.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

For the last three years, they have been very aggressive. They have been progressing nicely. So far, the stability has been good, because of the continuous product implementation. There has been a focus on the product and everything working. 

The people who started the company are still with the company, and this is a good sign that there is stability. This can be seen in the financial markets. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is one of the nice features, because they're able to come up with the UiPath Orchestrator. They have improved this with the 20.18.3 version, which has a lot of good scalability features compared to the previous one. Right now, it is scalable, and there are always new use cases coming out. The more use cases that we pump into the product development team, the more scalability that we will see and more features will be added on, because they can only think of what they have on hand.

How is customer service and technical support?

Being a partner, I have my own team that I work with.

The UiPath Academy RPA training is good, but we have a good geek squad. Our people have really gone to the community research and downloaded it, so most of my team is self-learning. However, the support people are always available, if needed, when we need some help.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty easy, because now my team has been implementing it a lot. For more than a year, we have been a partner. We have been doing a lot of PoCs.

Overall, the steps, documentation, and information are pretty straightforward when it comes to the product, so there is no ambiguity.

The staff that we need for deployment and maintenance depends on the complexity of the process. Typically, we start with a couple of people for the PoC. Depending on how many parallel approaches we have to do, we may increase to four to five people. With that number, we are able to create a good sizable environment and solution. These staff members would be responsible for the architecture, one would be the lead developer, and another would be the functional expert to understand the processes, then there could be a couple of people helping in the development environment and doing all the testing to make sure whatever they have implemented follows the process.

What about the implementation team?

We have use customer support for implementation of the projects because the team is really good.

What was our ROI?

Some of the return on investments are quick. Because some of the processes that we have implemented, a person who does manual labor over two weeks will see a reduction in hours. Thus, that person is already focusing on some other intellectual work. 

Our goal is not remove all the people, but repurpose their work time in better ways, therefore these people can work better and their throughput is good. So, customers are able understand ROI very quickly.

Its performance benefits are the reduced time, making it is very efficient. If someone is taking two weeks, and now it is takes them ten hours, you already have a performance benefit. 

In terms of product performance, there are still things they need to work on.

I would rate the performance benefits at an eight (out of ten).

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If you want to do a demo trial, it is a 30 days free. 

However, the community edition is completely free. Then, people say, "There is nothing to lose, let me try it."

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism are competitors. They have been in the industry a little longer than UiPath, which is just coming up. One good thing about UiPath is that it is really capturing the market.

What other advice do I have?

  1. The company culture: We are an extended family, not just a partner. Their entire team is available to us.
  2. As a product, it is really coming up in the market with a different architecture, most which is .NET and C#. For a lot of my developers, it is easy condition for my team to learn more quickly. We have not really used the Academy. My team was able to learn on their own. 
  3. The product has more in terms of supportability, predictability, ease of use, and overall culture of organization.

We have not really seen anyone moving from Automation Anywhere to displays or some other product.

Our customers want to see:

  • Whether it is a viable product.
  • Does it make sense for their business. 
  • If it does makes sense and are there other companies, why should they go with UiPath?
  • What are the benefits compared to other products? 
  • What is the benefits that it is giving to the customer?

If I can layer all of those decisions, then I have walked them down the path of the realization of ROI and why they should be doing UiPath. So, it is an easy sell.

There are operational benefits in terms of time savings and user satisfaction of not having to do menial, repetitive tasks
Pros and Cons
  • "The UI interface and the back-end platform are very easy to use."
  • "The customer support is supportive and knowledgeable. They are always willing to help and support me."
  • "Ease of use could be improved. The newer features are easy to use and positive additions, but there is room for improvement, specifically of the UI console for the developer."
  • "I would like to see the OCR, machine learning, and cognitive package that is being discussed in the next release."

What is our primary use case?

We use UiPath for automating activities that which from operations, such as policy administration, claims handling, HR activities, and finance to a little bit of underwriting support.

How has it helped my organization?

We are still at about a year and half of implementation, so the benefits are already being realized. Because of the size of our organization, it's going to take more time for it to make a real tremendous impact. What I already see is there are financial benefits that we have been yielding. There are also operational benefits in terms of time savings and user satisfaction of not having to do the menial, repetitive tasks.

What is most valuable?

  • It scales fairly easily. 
  • The UI and the back-end platform are very easy to use. 
  • There is a roadmap for growth in the organization: scalability-wise and additional features going forward.

What needs improvement?

Ease of use could be improved. The newer features are easy to use and positive additions, but there is room for improvement, specifically of the UI console for the developer. There are also other features that could use improvements.

I would like to see the OCR, machine learning, and cognitive package that is being discussed in the next release.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

How are customer service and technical support?

The customer support is supportive and knowledgeable. I tend to deal more with the account and management directors because of the relationship. They are always willing to help and support me.

The UiPath Academy RPA feedback from my team has been positive. It's real structured. One of my guys did the RPA development course, and it should have been an in-depth development and less high-level development. So, it was supposed to be an advanced training, but it wasn't advanced from his viewpoint. I think he wanted more hands-on experience.

How was the initial setup?

The version that we implemented two years was probably harder to implement than what it is now. Though, I would not necessarily say it's very complex to set up. It's fairly straightforward compared to other solutions.

We're still figuring out how much staff we need for deployment and maintenance, as it has been a much bigger requirement than initially expected. We're not at the stage yet where everything is hands-off. 

At the moment, I have a team of seven people offshore that do maintenance, support, and run operations. This is helping us have a seamless experience for the user. The staff in the those roles are support analysts and maintenance level 1 support.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you have your infrastructure correctly set up and that you are ready to scale up, because it will grow.

Ease of use has met our expectations. It would only exceed them once we see the new features come in and they all work seamlessly together. Every release gets better, which is what I want.

This is now a cognitive solution. It's leading in the industry, but there's still room for improvement. However, I know they're getting there.

It creates bots that save man-hours and money
Pros and Cons
  • "Technical support has been good. I am happy with their response times."
  • "Look into the data web scraping. I don't think another tool has that feature and we use it a lot. Data web scraping was probably the bonus of why we went with UiPath."
  • "We would like to know the prerequisites when installing bots."
  • "A bot that could provide feedback would be nice."

What is our primary use case?

A lot of our business development teams (end users) use it by going to a vendor's site.

How has it helped my organization?

For example, end users download information at the point of sale and export it to an Excel sheet, where what happens next is usually manual labor. Whereas, we can go to a site and download a file, then that file is loaded to our business data warehouse. Therefore, we are taking an element away and leveraging UiPath, so staff can do other stuff. That is how were leveraging the UiPath.

It works without human intervention. Since it has become more popular in our company, we will see how we can leverage UiPath with our supply chain, because it seems like supply chain is one of the top five ways to leverage UiPath.

What is most valuable?

There is a big community, which is very helpful and end user friendly. 

What needs improvement?

  • We would like to know the prerequisites when installing bots. 
  • A bot that could provide feedback would be nice.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is great. The product works. UiPath seems better at this than Automation Anywhere.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been good. I am happy with their response times.

We have not used UiPath Academy RPA training. I plan to suggest this as a training solution when I return from the UiPath conference to eliminate people asking me random questions about using UiPath.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I came from Automation Anywhere. The UiPath GUI is better for the end user, since I don't have time to develop a bot. Any user can use it.

While UiPath can be complicated, it is much easier than Automation Anywhere.

We were able to replace what we had with Automation Anywhere with UiPath, meeting our expectations. Then, it got popular within the company, exceeding our expectations. A lot of people are interested in UiPath. A lot of people weren't interested in Automation Anywhere. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It's not like an SAP product that takes forever to configure something. It was easy to install. 

We haven't upgraded yet because it seems like they just released the next version.

We're a team of eight business analysts. All of us try to create a bot, so we can familiarize ourselves with the process. So, if I create a bot and someone else has to support it, everybody knows at a high level what the bot does. 

What was our ROI?

We created an orders to cash department bot, which is already saving man-hours and money. Because of it, we don't have to hire an employee.

I would rate the performance benefits as a 10 out of 10.

What other advice do I have?

UiPath keeps growing, so it has met and exceeded our expectations.

Look into the data web scraping. I don't think another tool has that feature and we use it a lot. Data web scraping was probably the bonus of why we went with UiPath.

The community enablement of this solution is a key differentiator that customers can benefit from

What is our primary use case?

Our platform, it's called Cevitr. It's a best-of-breed platform through which we offer automation as a service. In our world, we have two kinds of robots. Our robots have a personality. Jo is our robot. Jo is a gender-neutral term that can be John, that can be Josephine, that can be Joe. We have two variance of Jo. Simple Jo, which does the normal routine repetitive mundane stuff, and Smart Jo, which is more focused with the AI and cognitive capability. Both of these are part of our co-platform offering, Cevitr Jo.

How has it helped my organization?

We offer UIPath as one of our core technologies on a platform, through which we offer automation as a service. There are multiple use cases for our end customers on UiPath. It's one of our core offerings as a core product on a platform. I think UiPath as a production, it's obviously one of the leaders in the RPA space and there are quite a few technology features outside which are quite good for us. But I would say one of the key differentiators of the product itself is the community enablement of the platform. If you talk about how they enable write from their training, it is being opened for everybody to be able to enhance their skills to the new UiPath Go!, where people can come and collaborate and create and put compliments for others to share. The whole community enablement of UiPath is a fantastic way for customers to benefit and move forward.

What is most valuable?

As a product, the stability that it brings in, the volume of transactions it's able to handle, and some of the leading feature functionality in terms of AI and cognitive capability. It's absolutely brilliant.

We are focused more on the unattended space. That's where our predominant offering is. Though in the newer version of UiPath, there are new features coming up in the attended space, which we might have a look at. From a cost point-of-view, since it's a platform offering, we are able to offer it as a service so it's not a price per robot that we typically charge our customers. It's a slightly different model.

What needs improvement?

I think from a feature functionality point of view, it's an evolving product. There will be more features added. Every product is going up. I think from a UiPath perspective, it is evolving as we speak. But I think where it could really improve is being able to create a development platform that is easier to use. Today, as an end user, if I have X number of developers, each of them have to have a studio environment to be able to use. Typically, that's not a license model. But if that is more easily accessible to the development teams. Without constraints, it would be easier for us to use this platform more widely among our customers. So, I think, from a licensing point of view, studio environment should be more easily accessible. But other than that, from a feature functionality point of view, I think it's pretty comprehensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've been quite pleased with the stability of UiPath across platforms and even things like Citrix. There, we have found UiPath to be quite good so far.

How is customer service and technical support?

It has been able to handle certain volumes with ease. We believe that it is one of the products, which is  quite scalable. The tech support so far has been good. But like I mentioned earlier, what we find is the community. It's brilliant. 

If there is a standard problem that we have, we probably aren't in the first people in the world to have faced it so we can very well go to the community forums and ask questions and get them clarified. 

How was the initial setup?

It's pretty straightforward, like most of these products. RPA is a technology. It's been around for a few years so it's very easy to deploy to end customers. Even the installation for usage isn't that technically complex, but we had to have had to cross certain boundaries to make it extremely robust on the platform. We have done those investments and made it seamless as possible.

What was our ROI?

ROI is for our end customers. With the technology like this powering our platform, we're pretty confident that we can give quite a good reasonable ROI to our customers.

What other advice do I have?

We have a best-of-breed platform. It has other products in it, as well. UiPath is one of our key products and platform. What we want to give our customers is a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end capability. This is across simple RPA to more robust AI-based process automation scenarios. To be able to do that, we have to have a best-of-breed capability. You know, we will be plugging in the right components. UIPath is a core component of that.

We are early in the journey with UiPath, We've had it for a few months, and I would say on our basis, I would definitely give it an eight. We are very happy with the product so far and we hope to do much more with it.

The easy drag-and-drop options make it easy to solve the challenges within a short time frame

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case is for creating custom-specific products based on the customer's needs. The requirements can be received from the customer on emails and then based on it the order can be created. This reduces time, ensuring no human error and on time delivery. 

The total time taken to enter this in the system is less compared to the manual process which is indeed error-prone. This also removes the process of reviewing the order for correctness as the straight-through processing is enhanced. By making this scale on all the other locations and geographies, lots of time and effort can be saved. This also enhances the reputation of the services and organization. 

In addition to this, the confidence created by the successful implementation is a real eye-opener as the big step is taken with great success.

How has it helped my organization?

UiPath has taken automation to a pinnacle of excellence by mixing technology, attention to detail, and keen observation. The way UiPath has revolutionized automation with excellent coverage, user-friendliness is helping companies focus on their core areas. Employees can now focus on real problems than spend time on routine jobs.

What is most valuable?

Feature-rich options to help easy implementation: It's flexible, scalable, and easy to implement. The time taken to create the bot is less. 

The easy drag-and-drop options make it easy to solve the challenges within a short time frame. Another important aspect is the framework and other useful tools and templates available have that makes it easy to document the audit trail and also standardization.

What needs improvement?

More support for certification is needed to attract professionals. The certification process could be made more interesting.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

This product provides most of the good software APIs that can easily integrate our solutions with processes

What is our primary use case?

The primary function of the organization is quick data entry to specific systems better than humans, with accuracy and without any interaction.

How has it helped my organization?

This product can work heavily with data entry. Most of the software, when working with them, don't allow you to input data directly to DB. This is the simple solution that fulfills the requirement by using a bot to enter data into any third-party application easily. It's not only about entering data but also the accuracy, speed, reducing human interaction, and more.

Although, think about the officer working at midnight, so what about a bot working 24/7 without having any salary, without using your resources -- that would save money for your company.

What is most valuable?

This product provides most of the good software APIs such as ABBYY that can easily integrate our solutions with processes.

What needs improvement?

  • Image recognition could be improved with more AI that identifies what objects are in the pictures, as example if we think about future about uipath, captcha reading , like if we given few images and find what are the picture that cantain with car
  • also If we scan any images , possibility of identifying this image contained pen, book,tea,cupboard, cake ....like that
  • Also, speeding bots may be good for some companies because some processes don't need to be viewed while executing, so if the bot can run faster than we see, it might be helpful.means that generally bot can run with their default speed and the application speed that its interact with, if the application support any speed eg(typing speeds) uipath should perform or having facilities to speed up the bot that its processing 

For how long have I used the solution?

Still implementing.
