In the current COVID-plagued environments, we built many bots, which was a plus, in place of requiring people to be physically present in the organization. We use UiPath Mining Review in multiple forums. At the day's outset, we upload economic information and make much use of the financial reports at day's end. This used to be done manually, but the solution now allows us to do so automatically. As such, we focus our attention on many areas. This said, the remote desktop we utilize suffers from inconsistent performance, sometimes functioning well and other times not. There should also be adapters for enabling more control of the remote desktop. The solution should include some adapters for numeric use, as well as a remote tester.

Licensing could be cheaper, it's quite expensive.

It's too early to say as we've only been working with this solution for six months. However, the main issue I have is with its programming. I think they need to work more on producing low code to make it more end-user-friendly. I think there's a big dependency on developers and technical teams in the background.

I don't think Process Mining has any areas for improvement. I think once you start using it, it's absolutely vital for a project. It's truly one of the most helpful things for a project. It should be an original part of the package and not just an add-on. Obviously, that makes it more expensive. But I think that once people see the value and they use it, it's so important for everybody. The BAs are really impressed and the developers really get a kick out of it — they love it. It makes it easier to sell. I believe it's even more valuable than Automation Hub. I used to be a trainer and an instructional designer. I think the training has to be more specific — it's a little scattered.

This is not a perfect tool, as there are things that should be improved.

The user interface could be more user intuitive. Also, they need some better data management features. For example, as far as what we are collecting, being able to decipher and comprehend what the process or flow is, that we are looking at. They could increase the feature set. I would like to see the ability to do fixes, such as to address and mitigate some of the gaps or issues in the process flow. They could develop models, or use cases that can be leveraged for mitigating and remediating process gaps.

The connection to other systems could be better. I don't think it's an issue right now, but I think it could be better. I would also like the connection between ProcessGold and the RPA's interface to be more transparent.

In an upcoming release, they could improve on the customization.

There is always a challenge with the infrastructure set up for the client. Setting up the server is something that might be difficult. It needs to be simplified to make it easier to install the tools and start working on the automation.

The main issue for us is how data is being collected. I think a lot of Process Mining's tool has a very limited way of collecting process data. Industry-wide there's a gap and data collection needs improvement, it's a constant challenge. Any demo will show an ideal case but when you use it in the actual environment, collecting data is a real problem. Cleaning the data is also a problem, and then being able to analyze it and make any meaningful sense out of the whole thing is the issue.

Getting a salesperson to actually call me back when I have a pricing question is extremely difficult. They need to work harder at getting back to their clients when they have queries. I don't have any special requests in terms of new features I would like to see in upcoming releases. Right now, it does everything we need it to do. The training materials sometimes don't keep up with the system changes.

Documentation could be improved and the cost of the product is high, even if you're a middle scale industry. You might reject the solution on the grounds of cost. Power Automate Desktop is much cheaper than UiPath and Automation Anywhere is also cheaper.

Process mining doesn't need an improvement as such. However, to get the data from the business process, the backend data, and the log data, from the business and feeding that to process mining is a challenge. Not everyone in the business can readily provide the kind of information that is to be put into process mining, which is an area that needs to be worked on. At the moment, process mining is a new product, so the pitfalls or the cons of this tool are yet to be realized. It's too early to say. What I would expect is a little bit of an AI component included in process mining. That would help the developers or the business analyst get more insights into the other possible options. The element of features that can be included. At the moment it is data-driven. There should be some improvement in terms of its intelligence to artificial means. That is what I'm looking for from them.

Process Mining still has to mature somewhat. There is a bit of a concern about being able to use this on a mobile device.

Its price can be improved. They can also have a better plan for training the end users to be able to use this solution.

One of the main pain points that I identified with the tool is the simulation. What I am looking for is a tool that is able to help us simulate scenarios. In practice, we pose scenarios to determine what happens if we change the value of a specific step in the process. A good simulation module would help you answer the question as to how well making that change will go. Process Mining is more of a pure process mining tool, but I think adding simulation capabilities will increase the value of the solution exponentially. Adding simulation capabilities would allow us to do some additional forecasting as well. I think my suggestion — considering the product category — is doing more to support integration with that type of simulation capability even if it is not directly in the product. A second pain point has to do with a deeper exploration of what you have mined. If there were an option to export to UiPath Orchestrator or the UiPath Studio functionality you can then further explore and utilize whatever you have mined. The export would make the process into some usable components that could be mined or used in other ways. I think that will be a great help and addition to the product. It would mostly be useful for development purposes.

In terms of what can be improved, what I've seen so far in most of the implementations is that the client's expectations towards the RPA solution and their road map for the solution are different. The road map should be very clear in terms of what should be done and why it has to be done. As for features that should be included in the next release, I would say that the UiPath should follow a flow X where a person who has a business process understanding and has an understanding of UiPath would be able to automate their own processes.

Some things could be improved in ProcessGold even though it is already very useful. New integrations sometimes depend on new technologies or new hardware. The compatibility with the various integrations with new technologies should be enhanced so that these can be adopted as they become available. It is an expensive solution. It would be good if the company could consider some type of change to the licensing model that could help clients better regulate the costs in different ways. Another improvement would be on the development side for test management. It would be nice to be able to create new custom features for testing within that module.

We do not have much confidence in the intelligence or cognitive capabilities and they should be improved. Automation Anywhere is really good in that area, so I'm looking forward to more advanced features in the future. I would like to see better integration with the Azure and AWS machine learning platforms.

The main thing that can be improved is the price, nobody wants to pay that much money for a scheduler. Another feature they can add is, instead of doing only UiPath bots, it should handle other bots as well. Then I can deploy automation anywhere on any other software. It should not be only UiPath. That's the future of it.

The software at first is hard to use and you're not sure where to start. I would like a few tutorials that explain step by step how to start, including a few tips for new users. I would like it to be more user-friendly and more visually appealing so that my eyes can keep watching for hours without getting so tired. I would like to know what the exceptions are when they occur, including more details about them. I would like to see enhancements to the recording feature.

I would like to see more enhancements to the recording feature. Also, more logic-based conditions and flows should be shown.

Improvement depends on whether I can get the input information to explain why the exceptions are happening. Is it because of different policies or incorrect procedures being applied? If that information would also be integrated as part of it, it would make my life easier. How the input is received from the medium and assimilated is important. The kind of application that we are using to process the particular process also plays a role. I would like to know what the exceptions are when they occur. Is it because of the process selected needs or is it because of policy, legal issues, or incorrect procedural obligation? That would really help me. In general, if they can provide the exceptions, as well as why those exceptions are happening from the input side and what applications had been used to process the information, it would be much easier for me.
