UiPath provides free community editions but that comes with limitations.


Recently I came across one of the emerging RPA platforms which is most advanced and more than 50% economical than UiPath & other leading RPA vendors such as Automation Anywhere and Blueprism etc. The USP of this new RPA platform is self-service automation.


It's a business user-friendly platform where business users simply record the process and that's it automation is done without any coding.


To know more about this RPA platform please reach out to,

We are using the Community Edition. The cost is only that of the virtual machines. The pricing of the Enterprise Edition is a bit high. It's several thousand dollars a month. That's too much, because not every enterprise or organization can build such useful robots that will make it worthwhile for them to pay this much. Maybe the cost of the program could depend on the number of automations, or the complexity of the automations.

One of the downsides to UiPath is the cost of the enterprise version. It is a little bit on the higher side. UiPath's cloud offering is a centralized, all-in-one platform. It saves money because you don't have to invest as much in other software, and it's cheaper than some solutions because you don't have to maintain the platform or the database. However, because it's not cheap, the overall cost reduction is not drastic at first. Taking a holistic view, it does because overall, it will reduce costs. There is also a Community Edition that can be used free of charge. This is an option for users that find the price to be high. One main differentiating factor with the Community Edition is the number of updates. There are fewer in the Community Edition. Also, the support offered for the Community Edition is not as quick. People will not have a great user experience. However, it is important to remember that in terms of cost, the Enterprise Edition is a little bit pricey for small and medium-scale enterprises.

Developing countries like Sri Lanka are currently experiencing high inflation. We share UiPath across several platforms with attended and unattended robots. We pay an affordable price for attended robots, but the unattended robot costs nearly 10 times as much. That's a huge cost, even if you only need five robots. Even with the budget constraints and the high prices in our country, we can buy around eight attended robots for the cost of one unattended robot. Unattended bots are useful and have a lot of valuable features, so it would be nice if they can bring the cost down.

The main thing that could be improved is the cost. I have worked with other tools and the licensing cost of UiPath is slightly higher than the others. Also, UiPath has a built-in functionality called Computer Vision to extract values from a PDF. If we want to use Computer Vision, UiPath has one drawback. The cost is based on how many documents we are using Computer Vision on. That makes it difficult to estimate ROI. Computer Vision has a dynamic cost. To propose a project to a client, a project that includes Computer Vision, we need to have some kind of standard cost so that they can calculate the ROI effectively. Computer Vision should not be based on usage. This is one of the main drawbacks that I have seen in real-life situations, when quoting a price for a client. If UiPath improved in this area, they might have many more customers who want to automate PDF interactions based on Computer Vision, because it has huge scope.

The licensing could be more flexible. They might have a different enterprise cost strategy for each of the licenses. The license is rigid in that you cannot generally scale up. To scale up, we have to have a license procured before we can run a bot there.

As long as your company has enough repetitive work where you can automate, the pricing is quite easy to calculate. If you save more money automating these tasks in the first half-year, then it's definitely a worthwhile investment. You should take into account the different server where you actually run the product with a Windows license and the cost of purchasing the machine.

UiPath is an expensive solution but it is worth the money. You have a lot of features. The licenses need to be improved because when you have to use UiPath on another system, you have to set up the processes manually, and you are not able to change the process the time if you configure a process running at the system. You have to stop it and then run to the other system. It's not too easy to configure it according to the system. If you have a large deployment, for example, 10 to 20 bots, it's hard to configure.

The pricing and licensing are pretty decent. If you are using it as an automation developer, it comes in at under $500 a month. Still, the pricing can be reduced, but the service and functionality are solid. I have heard from some of my colleagues that there are many subdivisions of the pricing and some of them are between $1,500 and $2,000 a month. That is expensive. But overall, my colleagues say it is a cost-effective program in the long run.

The cost is better than that of other solutions in the market, like Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism. Still, I would like to see them improve the pricing for small and mid-sized organizations. If you are working in a large corporation, adoption is not a challenge. But if you're working in a small or mid-sized company, there are financial constraints. UiPath has to introduce flexible plans and pricing so that smaller companies can also use the solution. In some cases, if you compare the overall cost of the solution and the cost of human effort, the human effort is cheaper.

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.

UiPath is becoming expensive and will be outpricing themselves if they continue to enforce their current service configuration (model). Many clients have been impacted by the pandemic and instead of assisting to breach the gaps, there is a sense that UiPath is monetizing on the disaster.

From what I hear, UiPath's licensing costs are a bit high, but I can't evaluate that information because I haven't actually experienced the cost. We are using a free version at the moment. A good thing about the Community Edition is that they allow you to deploy even as a company as long as revenues are below $5 million I think.

If you're smart about it, you understand what your needs are, you can get an ROI out of it without having to go get the full-blown solution. You don't want to drop $20,000 on an orchestrator unnecessarily. You can ease into it, into adoption, without dropping a lot of money. Maybe some attendant bots, and an unattended locally on a large scale, in a small area. If you do that and start easy, you'll get a return on investment. Eventually, when we start scaling, we'll pay for the orchestrator. You'll need that when you start getting a lot of bots, and it becomes like herding cats. It gets crazy. That's what you need an orchestrator for. While you can avoid a cost at a certain point, you're probably getting diminishing returns, and then it's going to be more costly to manage something all over the place. It's best to start small and then add on.

The pricing was great at the start, and so, down the line, we have been enhancing all these features. We are seeing that, as we are looking for opportunities to grow, the number of robots that we need to purchase and the software cost is going to go up. UiPath has increased the cost. We feel that it's good, however, based on all the new features, which we are pursuing. That said, we expect that whatever robots that we have purchased or whatever the standard platform that we have from UiPath should continue with the pricing that they had earlier. There will be an offset, however, when it comes to the existing platform like Orchestrator or robots, and we are expecting that the margin should be less.

The pricing and licensing get a little complex. There are so many different options that you can choose from, and practice adds to the time to figure these things out. Whereas, with, for example, Blue Prism. It's a pretty standard basic model. UiPath gets a little hectic at times.

I don't really have too much to offer about the pricing part of it. I don't really work on that side of the business. I would say my only gripe about the pricing would be something like a Studio Pro license being more expensive than a Studio license, just to essentially get something that links Test Manager. Some people might've found that a little bit hard to swallow. From what I've heard, Studio Pro is going away and Test Manager is just going to come into Studio. That would be the only thing I've noticed that I thought was a little silly. Everything else is typically not really my side of the business.

I do know about the prices of attended and unattended bots as well as Orchestrator. There are costs related to Orchestrator, Studio, and attended bots. There are also infrastructure costs, and, while implementing this tool in any organization, there are different costs attached to it. The price for the attended bot is between $1,800 and $3,000. The unattended bot was $8,000 last year. Orchestrator is around $20,000.

A couple of our clients cannot actually go ahead with the initial investment of Orchestrator as it costs quite a lot. The thing is that we don't need that much of a license in order to automate our processes. Having a free version of a cloud or having a cheaper version of Orchestrator has actually helped a lot. Automation Cloud helps decrease UiPath's total cost of ownership. However, overall, if we talk about scalability, once the number of licenses that I need increases, ultimately, Automation Cloud might be a bit expensive. It depends upon the version you're using. Yet, since the license cost is increasing, what happens is if you go ahead and buy more than five licenses, then essentially you would have been in better shape if you would've actually bought the paid version of Automation Cloud and installed it on-prem. That would've been a cheaper option. It's subjective. Our scenario is just that we need two unattended licenses to do the job. Some of the clients do consider the initial investment of UiPath to be expensive. It's seen as expensive specifically from the cost of getting a licensing for an on-premises setup. For some projects, UiPath can be overkill. However, it is the best software a company can invest in for automation purposes. I cannot speak to the exact cost, as I don't handle licensing directly. It's paid per year. We get licenses not directly from UiPath. Rather, we get them from a vendor. There are additional costs as well. For example, the cost of an SQL server is one. We are definitely using the Azure product suite as well. We had to actually invest quite a lot in SQL Server in terms of database management, just to make sure that everything gets logged properly and that the Orchestrator is functioning properly.

I always work to design my solution in such a way that is the most cost-effective. You do need to pay the full license cost in order to use UiPath, so you need to be strategic to get the most out of it. Our company handles costs internally as we do not directly deal with a vendor.

Licensing is quite complex, and sometimes that's true even when we have to explain it to our customers. There may not be a way to do it more simply. The only potential additional cost when implementing UiPath involves the third-party tools. It can be a quite big portion, of course, so you should consider that aspect. Examples would be integrating different systems within a company, systems such as Salesforce, SAP, or ServiceNow; all of the main CRMs that businesses use.

There are three leaders in the market: UiPath, Automation Anywhere, and Blue Prism. UiPath is in-between the two. BluePrism is on the higher end when it comes to pricing. Automation Anywhere is on the lower side when it comes to pricing. When comparing the automation of business processes, analyze the amount of work that your organization will save using automation, particularly compared to the pricing. You will be compensated for buying the product when you see processes automating.

It required $750 down. That price was low compared to other competitors. However, we don't have a very good currency rate per dollar. This was a huge amount for our company, which was the reason UiPath offered a very good price. At the same time, they offered us some discounts, e.g., a five percent discount. It has a good price for the licensing as well as for its overall cost.

I don't really know about the specifics of pricing, but identifying the type of automation you need will determine whether you can go with attended or unattended licenses. Think about whether you want your robots to run unattended and 24/7 or not, or whether you want a person to validate something in a given process, or if you want to constantly monitor the bot. Those are the types of things that will help determine the types of licenses you need. With unattended, they now have something called Action Center where you can do a hybrid automation. That type of automation will be unattended, but there will be a human in the loop.

If you want to start doing RPA, I think you should definitely go with UiPath because it has the Community edition. You can just install it and check whether or not your process works fine with UiPath. It will be an attended bot, but you can form an idea whether your bot can easily be automated.

The pricing is pretty fair. Sometimes the pricing can be a little bit strange. There are different prices if it's for a specific user, a specific PC or if it's an attended bot or unattended bot. The price can be quite different, but I think when you talk to UiPath or when you look at the pricing sheets, there's not always a justification of why a certain license is more expensive than another. Licenses are more expensive than another but I wonder why there's such a big difference, why attended is four times more expensive, and that sort of thing. In terms of the orchestrator, I think it was a bit too much. It used to cost about 20,000 pounds a year. Now, they are ramping up costs. If you get an orchestrator but with just a few blocks, it's cheaper and then you can add up more parts to the orchestrator. So the cost goes up, which I think is better.

Take advantage of the Cloud-based implementation. You'll have to handle the Orchestrator licensing costs. It's obviously different for every organization. It's beneficial to get away from the on-premise installation. Also make sure that your business case justifies whatever the license cost is for an unattended or attended bot. Show your business case and that the automation will help you to exceed the license cost. You want to look at things that are going to give you a return on investment in about six months' time. Take advantage of the Cloud-hosted version so as not to pay the cost for Orchestrator. Then for your bots, make sure you will see a six months ROI in terms of how much automation you've gotten and how much you can get the robot to get done.

The pricing is okay, but I recommend to build a business case before going live. Ensure that you really use the license and building the robot makes sense. Try to think of multiple use cases, because one license can be used for several robots. There are additional costs for using third-parties. We also have internal costs with the infrastructure and for the virtual machines where the robot operates. The costs are quite affordable. It is a solution that makes sense from a business perspective.

1. The UiPath Platform is very cheap compared to other platforms.
2. You can recover this cost in Months time if your discovery process is stronger :)
3. To start with UiPath Starter Pack you would end up only paying <= USD $32,000 annually.
4. Considering bare minimum good enough to to 20 RPA cases:
5. With at least 1 Un-attended Bot, 1-Non-Production Bot, 2-Attended Bots, 2-UiPath Studios.

Hope this Answer helps :).

I can't say whether their licensing structure is complicated or easy. I'd like to say it's complicated, but I try to stay away from the whole licensing issue. I tell my clients, "You buy the license. It's your tool. I'll come and build the bot for you." I don't want to have anything to do with the licensing. That deters some of the clients because it's a bit pricey. In the government sector, where I work, "free" is looked at skeptically: "Why are you giving this to me for free? If I download it what is it going to do on my laptop?" from a security standpoint. Some of the agencies get the approval to download and install but others don't.

There's information online. There's actually a section where you can go through training online for licensing. There's some documentation available as well from the UiPath sales team. You can just ask them. I've already struggled with licensing a little bit. It's never been super clear because you have the notion of a mode lock and concurrent users and things like that depending on whether you want it on one machine or whether you want the licenses to be able to float around different users. The wording around it can be improved. They communicate in a simpler way.

The cost depends on how many licenses we have and how we use the bots. We have a rate for attended bots and a rate for unattended bots. The price itself depends on the project and the number of licenses required. The prices, in general, are good — actually they are the best — but they could always be cheaper. Right now there is no one that is cheaper. The cost is in line with what we thought that it should be.

We license the use of the product on a yearly basis. The licensing we bought costs $7000 in 2019 for what we have in production. That is the cost of the license plus Studio. From a cost perspective, I believe that unattended robots can save even more time and more money than attended robots. The only reason we haven't gotten unattended processes into production yet is simply that we haven't got the authority to operate Orchestrator on our network server. The cost is not an issue given our budget, we need to be able to justify how secure it is.

Because we have so many agents, that's why we went unattended. Attended was very expensive for us because it's a per person license. Where we can take entire workflows, do the triggering and scheduling, etc. We never have to have any human interaction with unattended. We have a cost model for operating expense savings. It is usually about $100,000 to $125,000 and takes us six weeks to develop and implement. That's development, testing, and implementation. We do code reviews on everything. That does not include all the documentation, assessment, etc. We just signed a very large perpetual agreement. So, we had 125 Studios and 1200 unattended licenses. We paid $3.7 million. Then, we paid maintenance costs for the next three years, which was 15 percent of that.

Plan to scale from the start! We initially deployed with a single-node on-premise configuration to test everything out and validate the business case. Six-months later and we now have to stand-up a new environment that is critical-process-capable (multi-site/cloud, load balancing, log monitoring, failover, etc) and has the capacity to handle the number of robots and users needed as we roll out enterprise-wide. It would have been more cost-effective and much easier on the infrastructure team to plan it all out ahead of time.

The most important tip that I would share with respect to the licensing is that you should not think of a bot as being able to do only one thing. You should always consider the downtime and utilize the bots properly. That's the way you can have exponential ROI from just that one simple investment. Even though these bots don't really cost much, you still want to say there are resources like a dedicated machine that is there, there are electricity and all kinds of resources that also go into it. So the overall cost, we should look at that. If a bot is doing ten hours' worth of work in five minutes, there are twenty-three-plus hours work that the bot can actually do. So, think of orchestration.

Given how cheap it is to initially buy the product, the licensing methodology that they have in terms of renewing every year is appropriate. Later on, if they start charging more early on, for deployment, buying the license, and deploying it initially, then having a lower maintenance fee might be more appropriate. Now, with the scale they are at, it is an appropriate way to do the licensing.

I'm never really clear on what the pricing model is, the skews, and how much of an investment can be made in letting new agencies do any of the following: * Start to do pilots versus proofs of concept. * Pricing per bot in production versus Orchestrator costs. * Fixed cost versus licensing cost per user. * Have access to Studio.

Blue Prism definitely has a simpler licensing structure, but I feel like that's almost a shot in the foot at certain points. It also gets kind of deceptive. There's a crossover point at which, if you're scaling up to a high number of bots, UiPath path definitely does come out cheaper. But the initial implementation has a higher cost.

Getting licenses has been relatively easy. We have all the prices for the software. Every project is up for a negotiation on how it's going to be done. A lot of times, with the federal government, it will be necessary to put it on contract. When we are bidding for something, we need to know, how many bots are we talking about? The tricky part is when the government is unsure what they actually want. A lot of times when contracts or proposals are put on the street, the government wants something that can support 100 bots. That's not really helpful given that the price points for unattended and attended are different. So, clarification is often necessary when we're asking, what ratio of attended to unattended are you really asking for? There is some initial sticker shock from a lot of people regarding cost, until you show them what the actual benefit is. Initially, people are just going, "Why?" So, the retort for that is, "Look how much you will save, time, and budget-wise with one bot. If one bot costs X, this is how much it will save you over one year. This alleviates the "Oh my gosh" face, when it's 1200 dollars for a bot. Getting clients, and our own people internally, to recognize that this is an investment in efficiency to drive effectiveness. If you can do that, and you can get past any initial sticker shock, thinking strategically and long term, then you've got them. But if they say, "Look, my budget this year is only 10,000 dollars. Why would I put that into bots?" That becomes a different type of discussion. It's mostly focused on, you're thinking about today. We need you to be thinking about three years from now.

Generally, we push unattended. We think the cost savings is better with unattended. As far as ROI, when you are talking about returning man-hours or moving people off work, unattended does that efficiently. Attended doesn't always save much time. Thus, we push unattended for cost.

For pricing there is a variable at play, and that's scale. Depending on how you want to scale - whether working with a partner or directly with UiPath - there's a specific cost per license. But then it's all about optimizing a process, and what we call "license utilization." We try to maximize each license, and we'll have it running three or four processes. The cost is nothing, it's peanuts, when you see the capabilities. When you're talking about one license supporting what was previously done by 14 people, what is $1,500, or whatever the licensing cost is for unattended bots? Even more importantly, as a technology expert, I know that I could do some additional coding and automate the running of the bots. But why would I spend that extra time when they have Orchestrator. I could have a person running them as well, but the Orchestrator license is far cheaper than a resource; just click "run." When you compare the results that you get, the price is a moot point.

Our licensing costs are roughly 1.1 million Danish krones a year. We see some elements in the license model that we're trying to figure out how to utilize. There have been some elements in the license model where UiPath has helped us solve them commercially, and having a license model which is more focused on scalability would be a great feature. If UiPath really wants to put Attended Robots out to everyone, there will be a cost issue. We have some that we are testing now and what their effect will be. However, these are the robots where the license model needs to change before we go full throttle in that direction.

We only use the technical support when we were renewing our license. The process could be easier, as there are a lot of steps. We are set up for annual licensing and will be taking the time to renew.

Licensing costs are high, but still well within a positive return on investment. We like the hybrid model, but it would be very costly for us to have one Attended Robot for each person in the organization. Although, it would be nice to have, we don't do many mundane, repetitive tasks in entire our organization. We actually have UiPath to do all the work that we don't do, which means we can think about it differently from the start. If we can consolidate all those tasks on Unattended Robots from the start, then we save on licensing money, which we try to keep as tight as possible. The main cost driver is developing and maintaining the software. Ensure that you don't spend unnecessary time implementing something you don't know. Get someone who knows it to get it up and running. Let that be the basis of your tech choice. I like UiPath roadmap, and the roadmap of the product should also be very important.

It is not a cheap solution. There is an annual licensing cost for all the components. When it comes to back office licenses, why can't we have parallel processors running on one back office license? I understand the commercial aspect, but when you have servers and a node locked license, you should be able to use the license from different instances.

Scalability is there. There are so many use cases, certainly for our company. There are many opportunities.

UiPath absolutely is capable of scaling.

Traditionally, Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism are the biggest things competing against UiPath. Those are usually what most of the clients lean towards, if they see a cheaper licensing option. Most of the time, clients choose UiPath because it's easier to deploy and learn within their teams. That's what truly makes sense for them.

Licensing is one of the big issues when I have been doing some pre-sale activities. One robot price licensing is quite high with UiPath. They should provide some discounts to partners so we can spread the product easily in countries, like Pakistan and other areas in the Middle East. Licensing should be reduced and price should be cut down a bit.

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.
