Hi PeerSpot users,
We had a customer who has been using colonies for process mining. They are interested in long-term prices with UiPath. But first, they would like to do some experiments.
Can UiPath support the SaaS model as other competitors do?
Thanks for your help!
I would like to ask you a few questions about UiPath editions:
1. What are the major differences between the UiPath Community and Enterprise editions? Are there any significant differences in activities and features?2. What are the limitations of the Community edition? 3. Can I use ML- and AI-related features in both Ccommunity and Enterprise editions?4. Can I use the same user account i...
Robotic process automation-as-a-service (RPAaaS)
Robotic process automation-as-a-service (RPAaaS) is a form of outsourcing where a service provider deploys a cloud-based software robot that uses automation, machine learning (ML), and computer vision to help clients accomplish repetitive and high-volume tasks. Often, these tasks are trigger-driven and rule-based. The RPAaaS software is respon...

Hi Shibu, a new concept within the RPAaaS, besides being available from the cloud, is pay for what you use.
Still most platforms provide the 24x7 availability of agents which for SMB are too expensive. AutomationEdge, which is considered a contender in the 2021 PEAK analysis from Everest, has an option to pay by chunks of minutes and/or chunks of operations, in case of IT automation, per month.
My years of experience with Uipath and SAP is a key factor for the completion of projects in automation, sales, human resources departments and in general in all areas.
In the automation area, it is very common for users to want to automate processes without the help of specialized tools and it is a very big mistake that we must avoid, trying to do a job only with tools like Excel.
It can be...

Hi @Madison Sophia Bennett,
You have mentioned integration between automatic tools and Excel.
In your opinion, what other popular software should be integrated (or have already been integrated) with leading RPA tools to be used by an HR department? What about a sales department?
The most valuable feature is the ability to retrieve data from Excel files, including filtering the data. It is also straightforward and easy to navigate when building automations and makes our tasks easy to perform. It is very easy to use without any prior coding knowledge.
UiPath saves us time and increases productivity for our organization.
I like how easy it is to automate tasks and how time-efficient the product is.
They have robust libraries we can use to automate a wide range of tasks, and UiPath integrates with multiple technologies. It's an excellent platform with many valuable features we find useful in our business.
The Orchestrator and the Studio are the features that I personally enjoy using.
It offers me various benefits such as AI capabilities and works very well for me on all types of processes. It makes our tasks easy and provides accurate results.
The feature that I like the most is the Document Understanding for extracting information from PDFs.
The option to record processes is the most important feature of UiPath. We can use it to record every action automatically and it is then converted to a workflow. This workflow defines the complete set of processes so that we can automate every requirement.
The UiPath community has grown and is active. It is definitely helpful to be a part of it because others can assist us.
I like the structure of the selectors. They're robust. With other software like Automation Anywhere, we always have problems with recorders, plugins, et cetera. UiPath is more powerful and efficient. UiPath Studio has features like the Excel package, selectors, and recorders.
There are two features that I like a lot in UiPath: one is the Orchestrator option, and the other one is the Studio option.
We like how UiPath is designed for low-code or no-code users. It's less complicated, enabling everyone to use it with only a basic knowledge of automation or data. Generally, I also like UiPath's ability to mine processes and analyze user interactions to generate analytics.
The most valuable feature really depends on the use case. My favorite now is Document Understanding and the AI models that are being pre-trained. That's allowing us to do more, out-of-the-box, without having to do custom programming.
The scheduler tool is valuable because I can slow or speed up run times during peak use.
The speed to market is amazing because an automation can go from the initial planning conversation to production in weeks.
The solution is easy to use, has a good user interface, and processes transactions quickly.
The main focus was improving efficiency. Once you focus more on redundant paths, having a bot doing it over and over again, that eliminates human error every now and then. There is definitely a huge ROI in that. Our main focus was low-hanging fruit. By low hanging fruit, I mean the redundant processes that users are just annoyed by when they go in every day and have to do it. There has definitely been a huge ROI because we are trying to free up a lot of the project managers for construction to do more focused stuff there rather than job cost details.
We are able to remove all repetitive tasks. We are using RPA for HR, salary generation, interview process, appointment, etc. We are using RPA everywhere. We are in the top five just because of RPA. It's very important for us.
I like the fact that UiPath makes everything fast, and you don't need to employ as many people to do all the dirty work. All of our clients only used UiPath.
I like the interface. It's simple to interact with. We can replicate and multiply the robots when we need to change something.
The best part is the way UiPath provides the ability to automate everything, including the architecture and Orchestrator. The interfaces are very user-friendly and intuitive. It's very easy to build automations. Someone who is not very technical can understand quite a lot and start to automate.
The UiPath Academy was pretty helpful for us in the initial stages.
There is a recording feature that copies each step of a task. You can automate every process via this recording. It's a cool feature that helps you define the variables.
The software has an excellent UI; it's very user-friendly. The drag-and-drop options are some of my favorite tools, as they speed up the process, and I find that UiPath offers a solution for all kinds of automation.
Its ease of use is valuable. For building an application, if I give this product to a newbie, he or she would be able to easily use it and build an application with minimum knowledge. No extra training is required. Its features are self-explanatory, and anyone can understand them, which is the main feature of this product.
The UI Explorer in the UiPath Studio is valuable. We can get a unique and dynamic selector for every element in the UI, which is helpful for me in finding out a particular UI element. Most of my automations have had UI interactions. So, I found it the most helpful feature.
Orchestrator lets us see the entire process across various department units so that they can see the separate tenants and units. The application can multi-task to handle processes even when we have a long queue. If the queue is piling up, we can assign multiple robots to clear the queue quickly. We can find the ETA for the queues and everything inside Orchestrator.
The APIs are very effective in building workflows.
I have worked with other automation tools and UI Explorer is the standout feature of UiPath. For web-based applications, we can interact with every HTML element, from head to tail. UI Explorer is a valuable addition to UiPath for creating complex, web-based automation.
And the UiPath user community is the best. The people there are very friendly and helpful, and engage with each other. UiPath has done a good job building a good forum and a good blog, and making the community members interact with each other. The community is one of the reasons UiPath is my choice. It is a strong community.
To build automation using UiPath is fairly simple. The studio is quite easy to use. Even now, with the community edition, it’s great.
REFramework... is a pre-defined template built with proper exception handling and logging activities. Those aspects help developers to develop code properly.
The Automation Cloud service helped decrease time to value. Rather than focusing on infrastructure, our focus is purely on finely automating our computers and development.
One of the features that I like is that the bot will continue to work on other tasks, even if one task is blocked because it is waiting for user input.
UiPath makes you more productive because it comes with a lot of drag-and-drop features. You don't need to know the APIs to access particular elements on the screen.
They are providing an architecture that is really amazing.
The return on investment is really good
The most valuable feature of UiPath is if you set a form and there's an interaction with the user, it's easy and fast to build than the other RPA tools. Additionally, it is simple to use the connectors.
Designing a chatbot would usually require some language coding and it would have to be deployed with certain front-end languages. But UiPath gives us the ability to automate this functionality with drag-and-drop features. That is the very best part, where UiPath is doing an amazing job.
UiPath handles the infrastructure, maintenance, and updates as a managed service, and that means we don't have to take care of those things. All future updates and enhancements are managed by them.
UiPath is also the best tool for a beginner or someone who has no knowledge of programming. It is easy to learn quickly and to understand. You can get working in it much more quickly than if you had to acquire a programming background.
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.
The product as a whole is a valuable contributor to efficiency improvement.
Transformational processes are well managed, including exceptions, so that adds to the stability. Also, you can scale out from one bot to tens of thousands, so automation is quite easy with UiPath.
Every project we've delivered that has some sort of time savings to it has had an intrinsic ROI.
People, in their careers, can become relevant again. If they are in a dying industry or disrupted industry, they can get into something that's growing rapidly. If you have a computer, and a decent internet connection, you can have a new career in a fairly short amount of time.
The two reasons that we went with UiPath were, one, the learning curve, and, two, the community edition of UiPath, which had everything we needed to dig into the solution. Whereas with the other companies, there wasn't that option. With Blue Prism, for example, we had to buy a license in order to check whether the tool was going to work for us.
The solution is very scalable.
UiPath saves costs for our customers’ organizations. That would just be the cost savings from RPA bots. I haven't really dug into the cost savings of the ancillary products, however. I know that one of my clients is using the test suite now after I had built a proof of concept for it, and they've fully implemented it. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of cost savings there as well.
UiPath has helped with data scraping and plugging into websites and combining that with Alteryx. We can attack 90% of our use cases now.
My impression of UiPath's stability is good. Compared to some other automation vendors that I've used, I would say that UiPath is more stable and better.
We are seeing many hours saved with respect to automation. Automation should be on every project's agenda.
We are running around 20 bots and have 105 automations in production today. One of our automations saved 25,000 hours. Overall, I'll say we have more than 250,000 hours saved for the organization.
UiPath has enabled us as an organization to perform an array of tasks with more proficiency and efficiency. Automation is very important to our organization now and UiPath has played an immense role.
I'm not worried about the stability of the product. If others are using it in the cloud with much more complicated processes than we are automating, it's not really a concern of mine.
The ability to do citizen development is the most valuable feature. That initiative has helped us to expand it because that gives folks that are closer to the business the ability to develop their own solutions that are tailored to what they need to do, as opposed to waiting for someone in IT to contact them to build it out. Or to wait for a business analyst to provide some type of value metric, but they can actually go and build it themselves.
In UiPath, REFramework is useful for different use cases with predefined code templates. There are well-established steps. There is a step for code marginalization. Similarly, there are separate steps for initialization and processing. For closing an application process, a step is there. So, it is very well modularized for getting the transaction data. If there is one exception or anything wrong happens with an application, it will log the exception in the orchestrator and send an email. It can also close your applications and end data processing. So, everything is well organized and separated, and we can log the exceptions separately in the queues as business exceptions or application exceptions. We can have the complete report of a particular queue.
UiPath has good recording features that help to create automations.
I've contacted technical support many times and they are very helpful.
We had a cost reduction of approximately 20% in our operations.
Previously, nobody could automate the process. The design and implementation allowed clients to handle their own data, for example, for transfers and items like that. We were able to digitize entirely from end to end. Now, the customer doesn't have to come to the bank and they don't need a pen and paper. They just have to log on and fill out the details of their request.
It is a very simple tool to work with for anybody. Simplicity is the best in UiPath. It also has the best community support. If we are looking for any solution, we can directly reach out to UiPath at any point in time.
It has a lot of features, but the ones that I'm really interested in and focused on are the Automation Hub and the Task Capture tool that they have created. Automation Hub helps you in gathering a lot of ideas, and Task Capture helps subject matter experts in capturing the step-by-step processes. It helps them build their SOPs or a document system wherever it is not already available.
The fact that you can scale automations without having to pay attention to the infrastructure for doing so is quite critical. The infrastructure could require a lot of maintenance resources and affect costs, so that feature is quite important.
I have found Orchestrator is UiPath's most valued feature. It has the ability to automate different applications, such as, mainframe automation and Excel macros. It is so efficient. We can download up to seven days back in just one click, monitoring errors.
In addition to savings in time and cost, UiPath further saves us money because of the reduction in human error.
The Orchestrator is quite good because it is a one-stop shop where you can run robots after creating them using Studio. You can create queues, monitor the bots, and if there are any issues then you can debug them at the Orchestrator level.
The solution reduces human error significantly.
The solution is user-friendly and has great training materials available.
UiPath is much easier than the other solutions when you are developing complex processes.
The most valuable feature that we are using is UiPath Apps because it makes it very easy to implement tasks.
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.
We use UiPath’s selector technology to automate processes with dynamic interfaces. We extract data from multiple websites, collecting this data. Because there are different websites, interfaces, and scenarios, my team chooses some dynamic selectors to make it perfect and accurate. If we don't apply dynamics selectors, then we cannot use UiPath in our organization because we have a lot of use cases where we collect data from multiple websites. Dynamic selectors are easy to use and debug. This is the reason that dynamic selectors are very useful for our company.
UiPath : Product Training, Ease of implementation, Swift on-boarding of customer , Very Cost effective.
Very Strong Product Roadmap with AI-ML, Cloud, Governance products like automation hub etc.
And overall 5-star rating for UiPath Tech team, very innovative and the support team is fast very effective.
The most valuable features are the UiPath studio tools with the recording feature to capture the navigation of the process on the screen.
Its dashboard is quite easy to use and you don’t need to have a programming background to understand it.
I found the Library option as most valuable because first, we can avoid the development of the same task again by developing and publishing a task as an activity into the Orchestrator, and second, in case of any changes required, the developer can make the required changes and republish in the Orchestrator with the new version.
The features that are most valuable are Excel Automation, Web Automation, Web Scrapping, and CV Automation.
The most valuable feature is the UiPath Studio, the graphical coding software, which has high usability and modern appearance.
We used the AI Fabric functionality in one of our projects. We had to categorize users' reviews based on the sentiment scores. Everything was already available, including the model. So, we just have to click on all those things from UiPath now.
When it comes to reducing human error, another name for UiPath could be 'Error-Free Applications.' Humans can make errors while doing their jobs but robots cannot do so as they always do that which they are instructed to do.
They have recently come up with new features, like Document Understanding and AI fabric, which we have also started to use. These are helping us a lot with unstructured data extraction from invoices.... This is a great feature which is built-in.
They have also recently added a feature for attended automation, Picture in Picture, which is also nice to have. It's helpful because you don't want to just sit back and let the bot run and not work during that attended automation. Using the PiP feature, you can have it running on your desktop without having to interrupt it to your work.
UiPath continues to add services to the Portal. It is fairly important that they are all managed from the same place because it is a single point of access, which was a factor that really played into our choice of vendor, UiPath. We use Automation Hub to sort of collect ideas and discover what ideas are good for information, then we use Orchestrator to manage them once they have been developed.
We are using the solution's selector technology for UI automation. That is the most important feature for us. For example, one of the applications in our company is being updated day by day, by the development team. We use selector to make it dynamic.
Once we deploy the automation into the production, our manpower has been reduced so there are only one or two people needed for the backup. The rest will be taken care of by the automation itself. So, there has been a drastic reduction in our workforce.
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.
It is a single point of truth. There is no discrepancy or ambiguity. We can go to the leadership team, and say, "This is what it saves us on costs, man-hours, and effort that we used to do manually versus what we are doing now using the bots."
Being able to customize this is extremely helpful for us because we have other attended automation processes, and they can each be tailored to the needs of the business.
The fact that we have the opportunity to access all of our services without any requirements from our side suits us very well.
The speed is much better because we're doing it on the cloud. With other solutions there were network problems, but in UiPath I have found that network connectivity is much stronger when transferring data from the back end to the front end. It is much faster.
I like the document understanding feature. It gives us more accuracy.
The ability to use APIs within UiPath is really helpful. The web scraping is really great. It's so easy to use, it's very intuitive, and it's usually pretty consistent. When web pages change you need to update it, but it makes it quick. If you need to do another quick process, it's really easy to get it quickly and set something up. I can just scrape data from a website and save it somewhere.
The most valuable aspect of UiPath is the fact that it's a low-code platform. Being able to use a low-code platform really lowers the barrier entry of introducing automation. Normally, you fill in a request to go to IT to get a development resource allocated, and then you spend six months trying to do a project. Because UiPath is a bit of a platform, you can quickly, within weeks, start to knock off automation and get it checked and then successfully deployed. The low-code development environment is key for us.
Regarding the ease of building automations, I'm not sure how it's done because I'm not a programmer myself, but it's great. Just looking at how fast they moved once we had the program settled in — it was quite fast. For this particular process, which is assembling a document, talking to DocuSign, sending out emails, and so on, the deployment of production was like "today." It was quite quick.
It enables us to provide new services, e.g., our use case is something that we could not have delivered manually. Now that we use the robot, it is something that we can offer to clients. Therefore, it has helped us expand our scope of services and offer to clients more competitive fees.
Since we are getting information out to folks faster, they can spend the resource time needed to determine the best approach for what to replace it with, or if we need to work with a sales rep. It ensures that our staff have the best tools to do their job faster.
UiPath's ease of use for automating our company's processes is a five out of five. We have found it very easy to talk to them, identifying what can be done along with the potential use cases. They have been very good at guiding us through what is realistic at this point, how their robots could help us save time and improve accuracy, and how our users can engage with their robots, e.g., ensuring that users engage with the robots and use their product.
Attended Bots have been star cases as it totally removes dependencies of user literacy to know the application.
I found the UiPath Academy very valuable and it has helped us to understand the product we are working with.
Scraping data from the application using OCR and other text validation features is amazing in UiPath.
The most valuable feature that UiPath has is the ability to be able to use .NET functions.
Technical support for UiPath is great.
The drag and drop interface of Studio is very valuable as it minimizes the development time.
UiPath is easy to use with very simple drag and drop functionality that allows you to automate processes without knowledge of coding.
The inbuilt RE Framework makes development easier and fast.
From jobs that require reading and processing emails, to jobs that require scraping information from web pages, this tool allows us to do anything that can be done by a human.
StudioX allows me to build simple automation projects without the need to engage our development team.
The tech support that UiPath provides to the licensed user it is really helpful. There were some scenarios when my issue was resolved within 24 hours. Also, I like the constant updates that UiPath provided to us.
We are using the RE framework and it's very helpful for delivering the product on time.
I can easily get support from the UiPath forum and through the mail.
The most beautiful activity is sentiment analysis, where we can predict the good reviews and the negative reviews.
The cloud deployment option is particularly attractive to some customers for its flexibility and scalability, along with customary thin client advantages.
UiPath is great for desktop automation because it integrates well with applications and we are able to tailor selectors to our needs.
There are a number of activities available in the UiPath Studio, which are enough to automate all types of tasks.
The employee's productive hours increased and they were able to handle more transactions and focused on better quality work that needs human intelligence.
The community is what I like most in UiPath and I think that without it, the solution would be hard to learn like Blue Prism was in its earlier years.
UiPath RPA needs very little coding knowledge, as designing software robots is done largely using drag-and-drop.
Smooth integration of OCR, which is very quick, is a useful feature.
Quality of life improvements such as the multiple assign activity and more recently, the ability to change arguments to variables and vice versa are very appreciated.
The most valuable feature is the simplicity of the Studio software.
The training available in UiPath is really awesome and the material makes you automation-ready so that one can work on real-time projects.
UiPath has helped to make all of the internal business processes lighter, enabling my company to save costs in time and speed for all of them.
This ability to customize what we need has really opened up opportunities to automate programs that otherwise would not work properly.
The most valuable feature is the ability to stop the process after it has been started by an individual user.
The most valuable feature is the ability to extract structured data, as this is an essential part of the bots that we create.
The most important feature of all is the UiPath community and the forums, as they have helped me with countless questions!
Robots take care of tedious and repetitive tasks, where humans concentrate on critical decision making.
I am able to get answers on issues regarding UiPath in the Forum and I can also automate faster because of the reusable components available in UiPath Go!
OCR technologies and computer vision (CV) technologies work very well and produce quality results.
The UI Explorer can examine the underlying structure of the application's user interface.
The AI is also far more advanced than other similar tools, and it is free, which makes it a better product.
This solution is intuitive, user-friendly, and has a specific framework that allows for quick robot deployment.
Once the robots are ready, the scaling of the workforce can be as easy as multiple clicks to add additional workforce for the same task.
Computer Vision using Microsoft and Tesseract are pretty useful.
The most valuable features of UiPath are the drag and drop activities.
I appreciate the simplicity of the interface as I am learning to be a developer.
Our consultants have been able to go through the training videos and pick up the ability to build their own automations.
The most valuable thing about this solution is that it is easy to develop and easy to train everyone how to use.
The most valuable features are PDF, Excel automation, and web scraping.
The most valuable features of this solution are that it is powerful and easy to use.
The solution is quick and easy to implement. It's fairly easy, and it means clients don't have to get IT involved.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the ease of deployment.
The best thing about UiPath is that it is fairly easy to understand and learn how to use it.
It is really easy for people to learn the basics and the learning curve is not steep.
This solution saves us time in all areas.
The most valuable feature in Orchestrator is that it stores the credentials in a safe way.
Customer support is a bright spot and helps give users confidence in the solution.
I think the most valuable feature is being able to run processes in an unattended way where we can schedule them, and then have the report sent to the process owner's inbox in the morning.
The democratization, automation, and attended automation, all of these are pretty good features. Those are all good value add to what it was there previously.
As we are mostly using unintended robots right now, the main value we see is the ability for the solution to take away the redundant tasks. That's the key value. But there's tremendous potential in the attended or hybrid model. The value I see there is allowing people to automate partially or at a time. And whether that's something that we've identified clearly now or something that we look at in the future, I think that lives in the attended or hybrid piece. It would be nice to just see what more we could do and what more value we could add to the business there.
Unattended robots are my favorite because it allows us to completely remove a process from a person's day.
The most valuable aspect is the different capabilities and features that can be applied to different processes.
The most valuable feature of unattended robots is that they are always available.
The most valuable feature in Studio are the macros.
We did not have to do a lot of customization because the standard UiPath activities fit our needs.
Together, the aggregated features add value to the day-to-day operations of the business.
The main value within Orchestrator is definitely the scheduling aspect. That includes the way you can prioritize work and use queuing systems to make sure they're at the right points in time, as well as whether they'd be long term related, especially if we're looking at finance.
We have saved steps and time from people doing their jobs because they're not doing all this crazy validation anymore.
We are the first company to bring UiPath Academy in-house on the 30th of September. When we signed our licensing agreement, we added it in our own LMS. So, we have that connection and everything else. We love it. We've implemented all of their modules: RPA Starter, all three of the development courses, Solution Architect, Business Analyst, and Build a Bot. It's super exciting. It's one of the best things that we've done. I would rate it a five out of five.
The unattended, back-office robots are the most beneficial feature.
The product helps us establish and maintain best practices while simplifying workflows.
The most valuable feature is Studio, which allows developers to specifically focus on development.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the training that is available.
Orchestrator has a lot of good features including the configuration, the queues, the transaction reporting, the logs, and accessibility.
The client is eliminating human errors as they are eliminating some of the accrual processes from SAP, where a lot of mistakes can be made. If the bot is not making mistakes, then they are eliminating errors by 100 percent, but this depends on whether the bot is efficient or error-free.
It has a really good turnaround time for our operations department to start working on claims, because all the information has already been pulled upfront with the bots. Instead of having to go into an account and request medical records or a certain type of document, it's normally already been pulled on the front-end as soon as the account loads because we run everything through the bots.
The ability that this solution has to work with Excel is really good.
They've got the bolt on the market, so even with the new launches that happen with some of the new tools that came in, I think Connect really speaks to an overall automation strategy. I think that sets it apart.
The ease of configuring new processes via drag-and-drop is invaluable.
Orchestrator lets you start a credential stair, so you can get the credentials in a safe way. Before this, they were afraid that credentials would be stored somewhere and people could see them. I think it's really important for our customers that you can do that in Orchestrator. The scheduling feature is also valuable of course.
Its intuitiveness is great. This solution is very user-friendly. There is almost no need to have programming knowledge.
Studio is the most valuable feature from the aspect of developing a bot. It is very nice from the drag and drop perspective. It is very easy to follow and has low guidance from the technical aspect.
Unattended robots completely take tasks out of the user's hands reducing error and unnecessary effort on mundane tasks.
With the robotics and management of Orchestrator, we are able to kick things off. We are starting to get more out of the scheduling of these and into more on demand triggered events, such as a RESTful service calls and things of that nature.
An example of how this product has improved the way our organization functions is that it has doubled the number of records that we process per hour.
The product helps achieve efficiency that will create ROI and the training and support are very good.
The most valuable features are the scheduler, queues, and activities.
The product saves time and effort so employees are spared wasting time on mundane tasks.
Having something that is very flexible like Studio X will make it possible to change with our environments very quickly, very easily, very nimbly, and to deploy and redeploy as needed.
his solution has allowed us to tackle tasks that could not possibly be done by humans.
We're just starting to use UiPath now, but the automation process which reduces human intervention is the one we like most.
Using this solution has allowed us to enter a lot of customer data into our system in a much quicker and more efficient manner.
It gives you a technology or ability to build a solution on any legacy system.
The most valuable feature of Studio is the ease of use for developers who do not have a technical background.
The robots that I have developed can take a process that is normally very complicated and simplify it.
The most valuable feature of Orchestrator is that it gives you the ability to control everything from a centralized location.
The most valuable feature is Studio, which is a very powerful tool.
The most valuable feature is that you can save time when you have to run the same process over and over again with little variation.
All of the features are valuable. I think the best feature for Russian government customers is security. Security in Orchestration for requiring credentials. Our customer are usually serious about security.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the unattended robots because I can schedule my jobs and it can run on its own.
I like Orchestrator and how easy it is to manipulate and get your data, to see what's going on.
We really like the Orchestrator and how I'm able to see what's going on with all of the different automations.
The software itself is relatively straightforward and easy to use.
The Orchestrator management tools are growing a lot and are constantly improving.
The most valuable feature is automating processes and tasks, giving users time for more value-added activities.
We're able to handle some of our tax and HR processes, the volumes of the documents or new hires at a tremendous speed compared to how we used to do it manually in the past.
In terms of ease of use, I would rate the solution five out of five. It's really intuitive and any people that have the basics of coding can handle it.
Compared to other solutions, training is very valuable. You can easily access the resources. There is a community edition which is a plus and something that other tools don't offer. Accessibility is the best feature.
The Orchestrator is great because you schedule it, and that's it, you don't have to worry about it.
I really like that I am able to tell the story, using Orchestrator, how humans work, how bots work, and how humans and bots work together.
The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is user-friendly.
The ability to automate processes allows the opportunity to allocate resources differently.
The most valuable features of Studio are all of the activities that UiPath and their partners have developed.
Ease of deployment means that business benefits can be developed quickly and easily.
This solution has improved business by facilitating increased speed and accuracy.
It is easy to manage the robotics environment with Orchestrator, including scheduling and reporting.
This solution has increased productivity in our organization.
The OCR feature is very handy to extract structured and semi-structured data from documents.
The UiPath Orchestrator is one source to easily manage all bots.
UiPath has improved our organization; the primary difference introduced by the application of the UiPath tool is the speed of processing and accuracy in the data processing.
It helps mitigate the risks. With traditional native active directory delegation, it becomes real messy, real fast. You lose oversight on who has access where. We are an acquisition merger company, so we let go of certain companies and onboard new ones. With native delegations, you lose track on who has access where. With Active Roles, we can always see who has access and what they can do in a very granular way.
We were able to automate a lot of data entry into our financial system. We've automated spreadsheet manipulation in the area of financial management.
I think there's some scalability to UiPath that's going to make everything pretty convenient and easy to use.
UiPath allows people to do more value-added work. I found that we were able to take a person well versed in access programming and convert them to be an RPA developer with relative ease.
It's accessible, but also has enough features for more hands-on developers to be able to do what they need to do. From the two that I've seen, it was the more user-friendly one.
Being able to understand that your path is structured as a process flow, you are still able to declare variables, and ensure the background logic is sound. You are also able to really visualize what the process needs to do and the paths that it needs to take: true, false, etc. So, it has been very useful in terms of crafting it.
It took us only about two days of man-hours to build it out. Thus, it is easily implemented, programmed, and deployed. The ease of use and implementation together are a huge value-add and time saver to any organization.
Screen scraping credentials of whatever features that it has. The robot can log into the system, scrape the data, and enter the data into the system. This eliminates a lot of the manual work that the team had to do, which has improved the performance. Our teams used to do a lot of data entry, and this repetitive work has been reduced. The same resource can now work on some high-end work.
The object cloning in UiPath is a lot more consistent than Automation Anywhere. The consistency with which it captures the information that it's supposed to in order to do the rest of the process is probably the most useful component of the tool package.
There are pre-built activities, which let you build stuff quickly. It is a functionality where you can record, as a baseline, what a process looks like. Then, you can iterate off of that to build the bot and make it more stable. That is pretty nice because it saves you time.
It has a core tool set of things in use to quickly put together an automation, whether it's interacting with an application or website. It gives you the tool kit that you need to quickly put something together. Very often, we can create something in a very short time frame, like in less than a day, and show it to someone. Then, they can see the immediate value of the solution.
It has a simple user interface.
The most valuable feature of UiPath is they have direct access to read and write data in their applications, so we don't need to build a back-end interface.
The eagerness of UiPath engineers and their salespeople to help us along the process has helped us align ourselves more with UiPath.
The automation of repetitive tasks that eliminate human error is a valuable feature.
The number-one valuable feature is the ease of use. I come from a development background where I wrote a lot of code. The fact that you have these activities with pre-built functionality is great. You can drag them in and use them as shortcuts to get to an end result faster than if you had to do it in a programming language.
The differentiation between unattended and attended bots is valuable, as well as being able to do portions of a process that are unattended coupled with portions that are attended. We can get human interaction, all within the same product.
The most valuable features are the unattended bots. Initially, we are going to be looking at a number of attended bots in a pilot phase for our HR internal operations personnel. We are going to come in and try to remove tasks from their daily lives, such as ten minute tasks brought down to five seconds, or we could just completely eliminate them, making them unattended.
Ease of use and speed of development are the most valuable features.
The graphical user interface of the UiPath Studio is fantastic. For someone who is not a computer science major, or for someone who doesn't know how to code but is really good with visual flows, Studio makes it very easy for those individuals to build robots.
The most valuable feature of the software is not the software itself, but the community that supports it. When I first started learning the software to support a program, I had to self-teach; there wasn't a budget for training. But going through their learning platform and then connecting with the community when I didn't understand how to utilize some of the functionality, that was far more powerful than the product itself. The network around the product is amazing.
There are a lot of powerful box components with the possibilities of creating your own.
It has mainly taken the load off of employees. We had a huge amount of tasks which weren't being done. It provides our employees time to do their other work, since we automated very manual things.
Automation can be done in many ways, but UiPath is a more simple approach. There, any layman can learn how to program in UiPath, which is its main benefit.
The platform is object-orientated. You can create and reuse objects, which is a great feature.
The product is very intuitive and easy to use, and I am not a developer.
The platform is open, and we can connect it to other technologies. We connect it to SAP using the SAP Connector. We are also using intelligent OCR technology to read receipts.
You can integrate it to do many things. We have a lot of different data that comes into it.
Valuable features include rapid development and the scale of solution. The most valuable feature would be accuracy: The ability to perform the same job accurately and consistently.
We use it in a very large way across the company. Last year, we implemented approximately 22 processes and saved close to 80,000 hours total. This year, we have already saved close to 6000 hours.
The most valuable feature is its time savings.
The seamless integration with programming underneath, so if you choose to, you can get a bit technical with stuff. If there is something missing, you can make it yourself.
If I need something, I go to my account managers, who are nice people. They respond back quickly and get back with a lot good options, which I like.
It is great for automation. It can reduce the time needed for the entire work assignment, freeing up time for something more exciting.
It is very easy to make beautiful, clear, well-documented workflows that clearly reflect the process. This is an achievement that is not always feasible with regular code. Even though each activity in UiPath is like a line of code, the user interface in Studio and the use of states, flowcharts, and sequences make it so easy to understand the overall process and get an overview of what is actually happening.
It is very easy to use, and you still have a lot of possibilities to modify what you are trying to do and achieve.
We are able to smooth out peak workloads. Because a lot of the period closures, like monthly and yearly closures, we work in peaks. Everything has to be done within a few days. When we can prepare a lot of the data and reports through the night, the employees can start on those in the morning. Therefore, we are leveling out some of the workload features, which is one of the main benefits.
When we would have a huge backlog, we would hire short-term employees for some of our cases. Now, we don't have to do that anymore.
It is easy to use because we receive support from UiPath. Also, the product is easy to train people on and get people using it. You don't need a technical background to learn it.
It is easy to use and understand. You can learn it by yourself.
The scalability is huge.
Email automation can access emails in multiple ways.
UiPath provides scraping of both structured and unstructured data.
I find the most valuable features are automation and RPA.
We are able to extract data from the PDF and website, then translate the data into different languages.
We like the ability to capture some of the features on a screen for the application. We also really like the UI, and the design is pretty good.
It is extremely helpful with our invoicing process.
I like that it's very flexible, so we can design our automation the way we need to. Some other RPA tools don't really allow us to use all the applications that we use for our team.
The speed that in which it can be deployed is something I really like because that cuts down on delivery times. I also like the ease of use. In addition, I like the fact that we can program our own .NET to plug into it and there are APIs for multiple different solutions...
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.
It is very easy to use. We have seen new developers becoming productive in a matter of weeks, not months.
The most valuable feature is automating tasks that are highly repetitive, such as Accounts Payable. It is also easy to use.
Valuable features include the OCR capabilities, to take somewhat structures data and put them into more structured data so that we can do our analysis. Another is screen scraping and, finally, the overall process of integrating it with other applications that we use in our analysis. It has also exceeded our expectations in the fact that it's a lot faster to implement than we thought it would be.
It is easy to use and quick to install.
UiPath Academy RPA training is well put together. It paces well, not too fast nor too slow. You are constantly given new things to experiment with and things to learn which keep you interested, engaged, and moving forward.
The UI interface and the back-end platform are very easy to use.
The initial setup is straightforward. There is a lot of guidance in the configuration and actual setup. It feels like installing Windows. It's simple compared to other solutions which tend to be a bit more complex.
Technical support has been good. I am happy with their response times.
It has exceeded my expectations. It took a job which would take a user up to 30 minutes and decreased the time without their interaction to three minutes.
We seen have operational cost reductions. We have improved our efficiency and capabilities.
The quick delivery is good, and the solution is easy to use.
It is very stable.
There is no coding at all required to implement a complex business process. If you have some programming background, it will help you. However, if you are a business user, you can still develop simple processes.
