Initially, the setup is straightforward. With the upgrade to the new version 19.1, there were some challenges with the configuration files, the common config, the studio config, and the runtime configs.

When we work on a project we go on the config and look at the 19.1 version, but normally it was a simple set up.

I took one hour to set up the Pega Robotics.

My pain points with Pega Robotic come down to two big things. It is swivel chairing and dual entry. Those are the two big things that are an issue with old mainframe systems. That is what people are dealing with. It is just not doing the same thing twice.  

Ease of use could probably be improved. A lot of what you do in Pega is built on Visual Studio with OpenSpan. Pega is very user-friendly and it is easy to build. But you have to know Visual Studio .net to build with it right now. If you are used to Pega, it is a different way of building because it is still essentially Visual Studio. That is the issue. No question that it can be improved. It can be improved a lot.

Supervisor at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees

We would like to have collapsible code loops.

It would be nice to upload a project, instead of individual files, so we can look at file and versions changes.

We would like to have more features inline with our traditional IDE, like what is in Visual Studio.

MetaBot still needs to be optimized, though Version 11.3 did integrate all the commands into it. We are not able to see all the lines of code which are executed in MetaBot. 

Integrate .NET functionalities instead of installing Visual Studio, which is an additional resource to us.

Needs more Excel features and functionality.

We are moving onto Python machine learning and would like to have additional functionalities to be added, especially to MetaBot. This would help for the use cases that we are working on.

There are some discrepancies in respect to the variable creation of copying and pasting the code. However, in version 11.3, these type of disturbances has been removed.

The Visual Studio development for the basic version, which they launched long back, that's amazingly good. It has a good design, which is better than Blue Prism and somewhat better than UiPath.

They have good people.

The studio is very easy to use. It is not just for coders, as you can have a diagrammatic representation of the process.

The debugging is great because you can step into the code during the process, and you can also re-step, which means returning to a previous one. You can also change the code while the process is running and see the effect without having to stop the execution.

RPA Project Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

Valuable feature are for sure the modelers. They are quite easy to understand and use. I think they are what people mean when they say Blue Prism is a bit easier than UiPath. Whereas I definitely like the ease of use, this comes at a cost. In direct comparison to UiPath, the Studios feel like Kindergarden to me. Trying to make robot development accessible to people with limited technical understanding, they are taking away the endless possibilities resulting from the fact that a software robot is still a mature computer program. Not being able to insert code - or even complex expressions - is not a feature to me. Summing up, I like the ease of use of BP but to me, the sacrifice is too high.

Project Manager and RPA(Robotics Process Automation) Lead at a tech services company with 5,001-10,000 employees

Coming from a person that doesn't' know much of robotics or anything of that, as it's a new technology. I think it was quite difficult to get your head around that first. Setting it up, installing the software's very easy on occasion, but getting a grasp and understanding of the difference between the studio and the difference between the robots in that regard was quite difficult to get your head around not only for us who's been setting up the center of excellence but also for explaining to the business the different components and then just understanding what the different components does, and I think it's maybe more around terminology. We're building a bot that's running on a bot, but the building of the bot is in studio.

It's a very easy concept, but it makes it difficult for the business to understand what you're talking about and what we're working in and what actually runs the bot and those type of things.

Ramesh Menon says in an UiPath review
Co-Founder at Cevitr

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.

UiPath comes with an infrastructure suitable for development. It may be a disadvantage that the simple coding sections in the studio environment are with Visual Basic. Nowadays one of the most widely used languages can be supported with C#. Furthermore, it is possible for robots to interpret the information obtained from repetitive operations by machine learning. This is a situation I believe should be directed to the field of artificial intelligence.

UiPath Studio as a whole (the very 'core' component of the entire platform) allows you to concatenate all the different pieces/actions/sources you need — and doesn't matter which one that is (API, web, database, legacy system, OS application, email, or anything else like Excel, data transformation or even OCR).

Also, I'd like to highlight Academy (and e-learns) — it's very good and provides you with everything necessary you need to know.

UiPath is not an open-source project, but it supports private enhancements and plugins. These allow the community to grow and encouraged people to contribute, with best practices. In my experience, the technologies that are supported by an active community, are those ones destined to succeed. This is clearly a great feature that the UiPath Studio platform has. Also, providing free training courses eases interested developers into adopting the technology.

Having an online Orchestrator instance for training purposes is great also.

Currently, I am working on (resume shortlisting bot) benefits I can explain according to developers' point of view. I find it's easy to scrape data. I worked on few projects on an older version of Studio, still, when opening it in a newer version, I don't have to make much effort.

  • The flexibility and easy-to-use platform of UiPath make it on a par with other RPA vendors. 
  • The studio for development is quite intuitive and user-friendly. 
  • Also, what I like most about UiPath is that it has 400+ inbuilt activities, and on top of that, it has introduced customization activities making it more valuable.

  • Fast coding: completes the project very quickly
  • Easy to understand UiPath Studio and its components
  • All components are separate like UiPath Studio, Orchestrator, UiExplorer for creating complex selectors.
  • Easy to integrate a third-party library
  • UiPath has a community forum, and any member can provide solutions. The advantage of this is you will get a solution in much less time.

UiPath has helped to solve our problems by automating all the process listed in the use cases in a short timeframe with the help of UiPath Studio. The major roadblock we faced was at the time of installation on Azure PaaS, and it was resolved by many twists and twigs of conditions based on the experience solutions enabler.

I miss a functionality similar to the "immediate window" of Visual Studio. The immediate window is used for debugging and evaluating expressions, executing statements, and printing variable values. The immediate window evaluates expressions by building and using the currently selected project. Therefore, this would be a great facility for debugging using UiPath.

  • As compared to other tools in the market, this is a little costly.
  • Sometimes the UiPath Studio hangs while running complex processes.
  • Whatever flows I develop using previous versions, it becomes a little difficult to open the same in latest versions. We need to update all the package which was used earlier.

Dan Wulff says in an UiPath review

The stability needs improvement.

Within Studio, if you are holding down variable buttons (50 or more), then our entire application slows down. So, basic performance could improve.

UiPath could do some optimization of how you search through your process flows. Right now, you have like a small box in the corner, and you don't have an overview when you're searching. Then, you receive this list which you can click around in. That's fine, but it needs to be more visible when you are searching for your components.

When it comes to Studio, it is an easy solution to install. Anyone can go download and install it. Though, I'm not sure if just any company can install it, because you need to have permissions from IT in order to install it on your computer.

When it comes to Orchestrator, you need an approved structure from IT security. There are associated firewalls that have to be installed with your IT partner's help. Then, it is quite straightforward.

Maria Evert Riveros says in an UiPath review
RPA Developer at University of Copenhagen

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.

UiPath is easy to use, and it CAN be used by non-programmers, but it is even better to use for programmers. It allows us to make very robust and effective solutions because we have all the functionality of the powerful .NET Framework library within reach, all while the UI makes it possible to create truly beautiful solutions.

Director92ca says in an UiPath review
Director at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees

The product has met expectations in terms of ease of use. There is a lot of stuff going on underneath. In the Studio view, there is a right-hand side where there is a lot of configurable components of activities which are built. Some of those are exposed, and some are not. From a stability standpoint, it would be interesting if more of that was power user available.

Some of the documentation that UiPath has around the technical specifications, from a security perspective, are very factual and comprehensive, but they don't have an audience, like CIOs who need to approve this solution. Therefore, the documentation is one area where I might smooth the process out a bit, since the audience is different from the way the documentation is written as technical specifications.

In a Citrix environment, you can't directly connect to a lot of the applications that you can on a desktop environment, or in a server environment, where it is not a virtual machine and going through a pipe. However, that's just a technical restriction.

I would like it if UiPath could watch someone do a process, then builds the bot, but not in a recorder fashion. I want it to watch someone during their day and observe the processes that they do, then provide an informed assessment of what parts of that could be automated. This is because some people do stuff that they don't even realize could be automated, like an interpretation of people's tasks. Technically, that would be hard to do, but it would make a killer application. This make it a product to install on every single person's computer at a desktop level, or every environment, wherever the process is taking place.

There is some learning curve to using even the initial capabilities. While there are a lot of great tools to help you get up to speed and learn how to do it, I almost think there are two types of tracks which are only being addressed by a single product: 

  1. People who are technical and know the stuff which going on behind the scenes. When they use it, they want to have more access and more ways that they can tweak it. 
  2. People who have no coding experience, or low coding experience. In this case, it's great, but slightly limited, in terms of the activities which are pre-built and those are very extensive.

It would be nice to have a medium between the two or power user concepts, where you can open up all of the back-end. I do know you can do this in UiPath to access the code and take advantage of APIs, when you get into some of the really complex implementations beyond just send an emails and copying and pasting data from one thing to the other, which takes up a lot of people's time. There are additional things behind the scenes that would be great to have access to with UiPath.

It's an easy setup. It's a single install which is pretty simple. Connecting to Orchestrator does get a little complex in some cases. It is what you make of it. Certainly, installing Studio on a single desktop for proof of concept is easy. It takes five minutes. When you start to get into enterprise-level setups, where everything's a different server and everything has to be connected, that's necessarily complex.

With our focus on the federal government, they're looking at dozens of bots: Scaling of five instances of Studio, 10 bots of Orchestrator, and three unattended bots. That is far easier to scale than in the commercial world, where they are asking for 1000 instances of Studio and 500 unattended bots, touching 100 different processes. We haven't had that experience yet.

Dhaval Shrimankar says in an UiPath review
Manager at Capgemini

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. That's one of the best features that I've seen. There are other features that add different values, but Studio, in my opinion, is definitely one of the best.

Overall, UiPath is really easy to use. For example, if somebody is an automated tester, they spent a lot of time trying to identify selectors, and UiPath makes it really easy to find those selectors. You will run into instances where you have to do some manual manipulation to make sure that the correct selectors are identified. But if it's a pretty straightforward instance and you are using something like Selenium, it is very tedious. Whereas, if you use something like UiPath, it is really easy.

I would want UiPath to build as many activities as possible. The new machine learning activities in the UiPath AI fabric is something I am looking up to. There are many focused sets of activities and the ability to build custom activities is a great feature and can be made richer.

Extending the UiPath studio in terms of UI and functionality would improve this solution. This relates to adding hooks to the workflow/activity execution and extending the UiPath Studio UI with more functionality like a handy tool for activities with icons etc.

The orchestrator also can have set of APIs to work with.

Aaron Falk says in an UiPath review
Process System Administrator at Rich products

We are using Studio and the attended robots, but we haven't implemented Orchestrator yet.

Our primary use is to automate tasks within the accounts receivable, accounts payable, and trade settlement realm that we work in. We're also getting into some more internal audit automation.

We run automations in Windows Virtual Machines. It was a long process for us to get started, getting our IS to buy into letting us set up this environment and get started with it.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a two or three. They offer upfront training, the UiPath Academy, and that makes it easier but you still need to have a technical mindset to understand it, as it is now.

We have all used the Academy. On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. It's a great experience and very beneficial.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately six months. It took us a while because we had a bunch of other projects in front of getting our first automation. The process was hard, although it was not complicated. The approval process involved going through a security review.

CTO at OOO “DMS”

We use all of the UiPath products: UiPath Studio, Orchestrator, attended robots, and unattended. Primarily, we use them for financial liquidation. Our customers frequently use it for different cases. Some use it with chatbots.

Sometimes, our customers run automations in a virtual environment. In terms of implementing UiPath within a virtual environment, UiPath staff are working on the cost. Currently we have UiPath with a Citrix client and you need to go to the Citrix virtual station to activate. It's more difficult to implement as a user.

Our customers' organizations have involved about 15 to 20 people in their automation programs.

reviewer1214508 says in an UiPath review
Manager Operational Services at a energy/utilities company with 501-1,000 employees

We are using Orchestrator and Studio and we are using both attended and unattended robots.

We use this solution in the compliance space to manage risk.

We do not run our automations in a virtual environment.

With our first process going into production just last week, we are just new to RPA. The RPA involvement across our organization is very small given our stage of development, with less than ten people. These are both developers and business users.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would say that it's about a three. The software itself is relatively straightforward and easy to use. However, the task of automating processes can be challenging. Each company is going to be different than others. My experience tells me that process automation perhaps is not as straightforward as businesses may think it is.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. I found the training at the UiPath Academy really good and easy to understand. We were able to download trial versions of the software and apply our training to the trial versions. It is very straightforward and easy for .NET developers to actually use the tools. They felt comfortable, and there was nothing new, just a different way of doing what they do.

My company is probably not a good example of judging how long it takes to build your first robot. We implemented the system and did the process at the same time. So, combined, it took several months. Going forward, because we're no longer putting a system into place, I expect that timeframe to shrink significantly.

reviewer1214511 says in an UiPath review
Automation Lead at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

We are using unattended bots, Orchestrator, and Studio.

We use this solution for doing a variety of things. It includes a lot of back-office finance and accounting, tax, and a little bit on our operations side. We're also using it for some test automation within our IT group, so helping to test our points of sale, and some of our data transfers as well.

Orchestrator runs on a dedicated server, but our bots all run on virtual dedicated machines in our data center. There were some challenges in setting everything up to run in a virtual environment. We implemented a couple of years ago, so I think that it has improved by now, although it was challenging.

Part of it was on our end, where our people were not familiar with it. The challenges included picking the right type of VM to run on, having the right kind of setup, and having the environment configured correctly. We needed this to allow the RPA team to have enough control over the day-to-day maintenance, and not have bottlenecks with the technical side. Managing things when we had issues or needed to add something new was also a challenge.

The documentation was kind of broad and didn't go into the detail that we wanted it to, although I have seen that get better, so that is really good. I'm sure if we were trying to implement it today, it would probably be a lot smoother with the tools that they've come up with.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a four. I think there are still a few things they could do and it looks like they are working towards that. It still requires a good bit of training and ramping up for someone brand new to it, especially without a programming background, to jump in and start building. I think they can continue to refine that and they definitely are moving in the right direction. It's a little bit of a technical hurdle to overcome to be able to build not only just basic automations but enterprise-scale automations and automations that are reliable and can check up on themselves. I think they can work some more of that into the actual tool because we've had to do a lot of figuring out how to build best practices and how to program it directly, and the best way to be able to allow us to support it cleanly through the lifecycle. It is good, but there are some things they can add in to truly make it a five. My standards are pretty high, but I'm sure they'll get there.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. We are big fans of it. I typically don't get the luxury of hiring people with technical backgrounds. We usually have people coming out of school or people transferring from other departments who are interested in RPA. So, the Academy tools have been a lifesaver for us and they've been very good, especially for the RPA developer track. It is very detailed and we can really get someone through that training and feel like they're at least able to perform the basic functions of the tool pretty well. From there it is up to us in terms of getting them familiar with our best practices and how we program things and get some hands-on training with the more senior RPA developer to learn some further tips and tricks. Overall, I'm very pleased with the Academy offerings and they're one of the best I've seen from many of them.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was perhaps a month or two. It did not take long, and that included time for training. When we started off, we bought the software, went through the training as a team, and then started building a few small things. We probably had the first one in production within two months of buying the software.

Terry Yoo says in an UiPath review
Sr Finance BI Manager at Vulcan

We're starting within our finance group, so a lot of different processes in our finance group are being automated. Our main project was for our tax department, extracting data from PDFs and putting them into Excel.

We have two people involved with RPA in our company.

We just purchased this solution last week so we're still installing everything. We did automate four processes with the community edition. The length of time in development varied by the process. The longer ones required help from UiPath. They came on-site for the PoC, so that helped us out. Some other easy ones we just did ourselves within a couple of days.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would say that it is a four. But with Studio X, I think it will probably be a five. I say four because as you get more complicated with your processes, you need to learn how to code and there's a brunt learning curve. A lot of people will get turned off by that. So, I made some good sessions with Studio X, it's all drag and drop, mostly, so that's perfect for the business users.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. We are actually in the process of taking it right now. It's good that they have something like that available. There are not that many who have aced it.

We use Studio and Orchestrator. I personally use unattended bots but we're releasing one of the largest attended implementations right now.  

For the most part, it's still in the back office, finance, and accounting, that's typically where we've been starting. That's where for me, as an inexperienced developer, is easier for me to get started.

Camilo Gutierrez says in an UiPath review
RPA Leader and Business Analyst at Ecopetrol

All of the UiPath's components, meaning Studio, Orchestrator, and Unattended Robotics, are really important for us because they offer really clean processes. The one that generates more value for us is the Orchestrator because we are planning to really scale up the factory. It helps us to have an overview and control. With the insights that they announced recently, I hope we have really great control over it in the company.

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.

I am a developer so I primarily use Studio most of the time, and when the bots go live, they move to Orchestrator.

We have a combination of different use cases. Sometimes it is dealing with Outlook or the Microsoft Office Suite. The idea is to build a solution that integrates all of the applications that are part of the same process.

We are not currently running our processes in a virtual environment but we are currently evaluating how we could make it work.

Robyn Albert says in an UiPath review
Assistant VP of Robotics at Open Logix

We are using the unattended robots and Orchestrator modules of UiPath.

We have built close to fifty processes in the three years that we have been a client. Our primary use case, the one the gives us the biggest relief, is the processing of premium border rows. The robot will pick up Excel files with between four hundred and a thousand rows of data, and then does the data entry into our policy issuance system.

All of our automation runs in a virtual environment and we do not have any problems. At the start, of course, there were a few bumps in the road, but we got it figured out and now have no issues at all using the VM.

When we began working with automation, I was the leader and I had three BAs and three developers offshore. When our company decentralized, we created three other robotics divisions. There are now twenty-eight of us including the project manager, the BAs, the testers, and our developers. People are spread across four different divisions within the corporation.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, I will consider the individual components. With the Orchestrator, on a scale of one to five, that's easy, it's a five. It is very evident how to use it. The Studio, I am not a developer but I got six developers up and running on it in a very short period of time. It has a very short learning curve, so on a scale of one to five, I would rate it a four.

My rating of four is because I know that we had some challenges with using the recorder. Things would shift and there were a couple of things that had worked and then stopped working. We found a little instability, and it was hard for us to know whether it was us, or the application, or the studio. Ultimately, we were not able to get a final answer on the root cause of those problems.

We are no longer experiencing these problems. When we upgraded, a lot of that went away. Also, when we went to Orchestrator, a lot of that went away. Exactly as UiPath had told us when we went to them with the issue, they gave us some solutions and once we implemented them, the issue was corrected.

I did not attend the UiPath Academy, but my Business Analysts took the BA course and my offshore developers all took the Academy. On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five easily. Before the Academy came around, they were kind of self-taught. When they took the Academy, it closed some of their gaps.

When we started with this solution, we did a PoC with the help of a UiPath developer. In two weeks we built a PoC for a bank reconciliation, which was pretty fast. That helped us decide whether we wanted to go with the product, and of course, we did. After that, we took the code, which really didn't have a lot of bells and whistles in it, and we gave it to one of our developers to really soup it up and make it more robust. That took them about a month to do.

We use attended and unattended bots, Orchestrator, and Studio for development.

We're seeing increasing adoption of Studio because more people see how easy and straightforward it is to use a lot of the features. It helps that UiPath training is free. Our entire team, including our salespeople, have gone through the training. It's free and it makes a big difference. For the salespeople, they're able to talk more intelligently about RPA.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five, for sure. In fact, I have taken a lot of ideas from their training to educate my customers about RPA. When it comes to RPA, a lot of it is education because some of them don't know exactly how automation can be done. I've told UiPath that I use their training in my presentation, and it is great.

We are working with a technology company called Rammer, Rammer.ai. What the Rammer software does is listen to conversations to learn the details of what is being discussed. A third-party system is used to transcribe the conversation into text, then Rammer will learn the details without much training. It knows the topics, it understands what is talked about the most, talked about the least, how much we are adhering to the script if it's a call center use case, or if it is a simple meeting use case then it knows who is assigned what tasks, it recognizes the follow-ups, and it knows the summary of the discussion. All of this is summarized in a nice, consumable manner. So now, when a bot knows all of this information, it goes into Orchestrator, logs all these activities that are picked up by unattended bots downstream, and they trigger all those processes back. So it's a massive consumption of all of those heavy use cases.

We have not yet run automations in a virtual environment, although we do have customers who are asking for it. We are not sure if we will need UiPath's help for this yet because we haven't tried it.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate it a five. Really, it depends on how clearly we understand the requirements. So a lot of times we are able to find process gaps, which wasn't the case earlier before we started thinking about automation in this manner. I would say the ease of use is actually dependent on some of those factors as well.

Usually, starting is the biggest challenge for most people, and I think this is because it is in a trial environment and there is a lack of documentation, with multiple people doing one part of a small subset of a task. There are these challenges and then if none of them are documented, you need to figure out the process flow. From person one, where does it go? This can change when people can do multiple things.

It becomes a very complex web to understand and navigate through. We need to understand the task and how it should be performed. For developing the robot, it's very important to have the clarity upfront, otherwise, we cannot code them. That is the biggest challenge, I feel.

From the point that a UiPath license is purchased until the first bot is ready is almost immediate. This is because we usually start with a PoC on a small scale, just to see if automation with this approach makes sense. By the end of the PoC, we'll normally know exactly how many bots are needed. Sometimes it is on us, more than the customer when we cannot estimate every process that is outside of the departments and division that we work with because we just work at finance. For example, we can't just estimate what marketing would use, and so on. That will sometimes delay things.

Orchestrator has valuable scheduling and being able to run things on demand and dynamically as well allocating the transaction, and the studio are good features. Nothing stands out in particular. Everything's kind of equal, it just depends on the task you need to complete.

With an unattended robot, you can schedule it and have it running autonomously.

The solution is quick and easy to implement. It's fairly easy, and it means clients don't have to get IT involved. If you get IT involved in anything there's always blockers and there are always other priorities.

Solution Architect Support Manager at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees

What I think is the best thing about UiPath is that it is fairly easy to understand and learn how to use it. One of the most valuable things about the product is the improvement they are making with the tools. They are offering around thirteen new products now. With these additions, there is a lot of value-added enhancement that we can provide via the automation to augment what we already have implemented.

The studio's Orchestrator is the tool that we use in order to create the scripts for the bot. It is what enables us to deliver automation. Having these new technologies within the studio is what enables us to be more creative. With the Orchestrator we can monitor the bots, we can "orchestrate" them, and we can deliver that tool to customers so that they can manage their bots. It is really like digital workforce management. If we created a bot for a business, usually it would just do its job and the customer would not see what the bots are really doing. With this tool, the client has that opportunity to see what the bots are doing. 

The bots automate the work that otherwise would have to be done with other interventions and resources, so reallocation of resources and focus is the most valuable thing overall.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a five. It's drag-and-drop, and all of the activities are there.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a four. All of this information there is self-explanatory and it works. 

From the point where we started using the demo version, it was a couple of months until our first robot was ready.

As far as additional features, there doesn't seem to be anything outstanding that I can think of right now. Maybe some off-the-shelf "How To" features could be installed with Studio so that you can search for how to do something and pull it up directly in the Academy or on-screen without leaving the product.

There could be room for improvement in the ticketing feature. It's kind of hard to find that feature sometimes.

We are using Studio, Orchestrator, and bots.

We are a consulting company that is working with one of our clients to automate back-office accounting processes for a logistics company. There are five people in the core team who are working on the implementation.

We run automations in a virtual environment, but I was not responsible for the implementation.

With respect to how easy it is to automate the company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate it four. It's very easy, but it is difficult to explain to our customers who are not as technical. In other words, it is difficult for people who are coming from the business side.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. Without it, I don't think that I could have started the implementation. I completed the developer program just for a general understanding of how everything works, including the Orchestrator and how it all works together. For me, the training was really important. It was very good and I really liked it.

We were working with the Community Edition at first, but from the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately one month.

Kaitlyn Kapp says in an UiPath review
Software Engineer at Security Benefit

We are using attended and unattended robots, Orchestrator, and Studio.

We are in the financial services industry. A lot of what we do is background data processing, and we use the unattended robots for a lot of it. We do have some attended robots as well, but most of our processes are unattended.

I am a developer, so I primarily use Studio. I write the instructions for our Orchestrator Application Manager to do everything we need in Orchestrator. 

We are currently operating an on-premises deployment, but we're in the pilot group for Cloud, so as soon as we get a date on that we'll probably be migrating.

One of the primary processes that we've automated is reporting. Prior to automation, our users were only able to run a few of the reports, a few times a week. Now, we're running every single report that there is to run, which is probably four or five times what they were able to do, every single day. Every morning they receive a summary of that work, so they're able to just get on and look at it, rather than during the close of the day. In financial services, the close of the day is crunch time. We work really hard to make sure that everything is done within a set about of time because there is a domino effect. One person has to be done before the next person can finish, and they're not having to dig back and try to figure out when these issues happened. We're providing it to them upfront. We can say exactly what happened, which account they need to look at, and on what date. This means that we're ahead of the issues, rather than trying to backtrack and find them.

We are not currently running in a Citrix environment, but the only reason we're not is that our sister company hosts our Citrix environment, so we can't install any of the services that make those environments much easier to utilize. For example, we can't install the computer vision component because we don't own it, so they won't let us.

Our team is really small, there's only six of us on the actual RPA team. However, we work really hard with the business to get buy-in in every department. We're trying to roll out at least one automation in every single department. Our company's goals for the next year, I believe, every associate of the company is supposed to have proposed a task that they are doing, whether it's daily, monthly, yearly, whatever, that could be automated. Then our team will ingest that, prioritize that, and work through it. But, we're really trying really hard to get our whole company involved, and we're getting ready to kick off this campaign to try and get more attention to it and to try and get people using it. We want it to be more than just a buzzword. We want it to be something that everybody's talking about regularly, and using, and excited about.

When it comes to getting people interested, I think it's probably a combination of education and sharing the experience of those projects that we have rolled out. When people are really seeing that with the projects that we've rolled out, our close is shortening, they become interested. What we say is happening, or will happen when we're rolling these automations out, is happening. Getting that to be shared from process owner to their team, to the teams that they're working with, it acts like word of mouth for those that are affected. We don't like it to just all come from us, the technical team. We don't want to simply tell them that it's going to do something. We want others to talk about what it has done for them and suggest they should take advantage of that too.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate it a five. We don't struggle with it.

I took the UiPath academy training, and I love it. We are looking at an unrelated tool right now, and we found no comparison between their training and the UiPath Academy. We were spoiled with UiPath Academy, and we didn't really realize how good that training really is.

The thing that I love about the developer training; the level one, level two, level three... level one really does walk you through it. It gives you, literally the walkthrough, so when you don't understand, you can go back, you can look at, and see exactly how to do it. But by the time you're in level three, it's not doing that anymore. The requirements are a little bit looser, you have to figure out how to interpret the words or the requirements, and it becomes more challenging, but I think that that's important, because, by the time that you're actually working real projects, it's not a walkthrough anymore. You have to figure it out on your own.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately three months. It did take us a little while, but we knew that we purchased our licenses before we were really ready to hit the ground running. We function out of such a small team, and we were still working with UiPath trying to figure out which partner we wanted to bring in for consultants because we wanted somebody with experience. We didn't want someone who just finished the training just run in and try, and I think we learned a lot working with that consultant.

We did work with a second consulting group, Machina Automation, and we loved working with them. They're great. They're just so supportive, and they really want to make sure things are right. It's never just sending them the requirements and pounding it out to get it into production. We work with them really deeply to try and make sure that they understand the process, we understand the requirements, they express their concerns to us, we express our concerns to them, and we work together. It's not like we just send them the documents and they send it back as a project. The whole way through we touch base with them every single morning. They're always asking what more they can do and how they can help. They ask if we're happy with what we received.

We do time card reviews, so the time that they spend with us we're actually able to go back and validate, based on that, what they've said they did, that indeed it is what they did. We had received some scrum and sprint training from them. We've had actual developer consultants, we've had mentoring hours for our developers. So we've had a lot from them, and they've been able to help us with everything. Anything we ask, they try to accommodate us. For example, we asked if they had any experience with Kibana. They did not but said that they would find somebody who does.

We're using all components of UiPath: attended, unattended robotics, and Orchestrator Studio. We have a very wide customer base and our clients use all of them.

Cloud adoption is increasing. Deployment models are a little bit more a logistic question than anything else because companies who want on-site are a little bit more conscious of security, but they take a normal amount of time, just to figure out the infrastructure. If we moved clients to the cloud, we can make it easier to implement. With email on the cloud, they have a huge set of processes. The larger the company, the larger the processing. With the cloud, it becomes faster. 

I've got a deep partnership with UiPath. I would absolutely rate them high. I'd give them a ten out of ten.

Process Architect at a insurance company with 201-500 employees

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. 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.

On a scale of one to five, I would validate the ease of use to maintain our processes almost at five now that the solution has introduced Studio X. Studio X has the potential of empowering people to prototype and then pass along more qualified information. It's a game-changer.

Right now just being able to capture process, even without Studio X, let's say we video it or we capture it by way of a traditional Vizio diagram, enables asking work instructions, etc. It allows us to capture and standardize what people are doing as well as take steps toward optimizing processes in general. It's all good stuff.

I wouldn't know without looking at the actual metrics, but I would say in general our pay projects probably cut time by factors. Simply because people do things more slowly, more inefficiently. They're interrupting where the bot is not. That's the reason why we love it so much. The potentials of cost and time savings and the possibility of really having people get some of their time back is great.

Application Developer at a wholesaler/distributor with 5,001-10,000 employees

We are using Orchestrator for both development and production. We are using attended and unattended bots, and we are using Studio to develop them.

We use this solution for front-office processes, back-office processes, IT processes, and automating anything that we can.

We run our automations inside a virtual environment. We use Citrix and Citrix Server. We have sixty-seven processes that we've automated to run in the virtual environment and its very straightforward. It's deployed out of Orchestrator, and for attended processes, it's as simple as going in, opening a UI robot, and clicking the start button. It's phenomenally easy.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would say that it's a five. It's very easy. I'm a software developer by trade and I was able to automate several processes in a very short time span. In two weeks I can automate an entire process, end-to-end, which is incredibly fast for the ROI.

One of our processes was extremely complex, which was our customer onboarding process. The complexity was, in part, because it is handled by six different departments. The PDD for it was one hundred and forty pages long. One or two we've done were simple automations, and the rest have been medium to high complexity.

My first robot went into production within a month of me being in my position. That included going through all of the UiPath training, getting familiar with our IT systems, and then actually vetting out a process and automating.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. It was very informative and very detailed.

We are using the unattended robots more than we are the attended ones, and we're trying to continue that drive. We understand that there's a need for some processes to run attended, but if we can, we do process optimization to make it work and be unattended.

Sr Consultant at a marketing services firm with 1-10 employees

We are using Orchestrator, Studio, attended and unattended robots.

I am on the business analyst side, so I do not have much experience with Orchestrator.

We are using this solution to automate processes for our clients. They typically have mundane processes or something that's super repetitive, that we're able to quickly automate for them and see that return. We did do an attended bot with them as well, to improve their call center.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would say it's a four. This is a rating from the business side, as opposed to the development side. We understand what the features are, and when new releases come out we have an understanding of what's feasible. I am not rating it a five because sometimes we do not know whether a use case is feasible or not. It means that I may have to speak to one of the developers to see whether it can be done with the tools and the features that are out there.

We host the UiPath Academy RPA training every other month for our clients. I have not taken the full course, but on a scale from one to five, I would rate it a five. This is based on the number of people who sign up for it and look forward to attending it, just to learn the basics of RPA.

In terms of how long it takes from purchasing a UiPath license until having the first robot, the average is probably four weeks. It depends on the complexity of the process.

We are using Studio and Orchestrator, and we purchased an unattended bot.

Our UiPath is integrated with Kibana, which is a free tool.

Our primary use of this solution is to automate manual processes. We have approximately eighty use cases to automate.

The RPA team includes two developers, a manger, and two BPOs.

We run automations in a virtual environment, but I am not familiar with the details.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a five. We just drag and drop. If you want to write something we use "Type Into". If you want to click, we use the corresponding click application. For me, it's very easy, and we also have tutorials available on the UiPath website. That is something that is very useful for everyone who wants to learn, and even a non-programmer can start learning to become a developer.

The Academy RPA training was very beneficial and I would rate it a five out of five. You cannot skip one step. There are ten sections and you cannot skip any of them. It means that until you pass a certain test, it will not allow you to go to the next lesson. This restricts people from jumping directly into another section. I really like the training and it is very easy. The tutorials are not very lengthy, they are simple, and the way they are explained is relatable. The practice tests that were conducted at the end were really helpful.

We partnered with IVy to create our first two pilot bots, and from the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately six months. It was very easy because they helped us.

Senior Consultant at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

We primarily use the Studio, which is for developing the robots, and we deploy to Orchestrator.

We went through a large SAP transformation and we had a lot of issues getting the users to accept the new systems. They were issues related to the adoption of new systems. We decided to build these attended bots in order to guide the users through the system. Essentially, it is navigation or guidance assistance. By helping the users with proper data entry and design, flowing in a logical sequence that is easy for the user to follow, it minimizes end-user training.

Running our automations in a virtual environment is something that we had tried during our PoC. Currently, we have attended bots deployed in more than twenty thousand laptops, and eventually, we're planning to have more than eighty thousand deployments. Because of the large scale, initially, we were having a lot of challenges because of things that go on with the users' machines. We wanted to explore Citrix because there is just one virtual environment that every user logs on to, and then run the processes from there. Unfortunately, it did not work for us. We were seeing a lot of issues and felt that it was much more stable deploying individually to each laptop, instead of using Citrix.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a four. There is always room for improvement.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. The material is very sequential and logical. You don't get lost because you just follow the modules from beginner to intermediate to advanced. You cover everything from end-to-end, and it is very structured.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately one year. This included our pilot project, then the development and the UAT. When we went live in production there were three thousand users.

We are automating 12 shared services processes. They are from the finance, HR, and procurement areas. These processes are run at a high frequency and are required to be captured on two different platforms. We have implemented this solution to stop entry clerks from having to do the same job twice, on two different platforms.

We run automations in a virtual environment and it is successful. The implementation was fast and we realized the benefits quickly. Currently, we have deployed three processes and we are going to roll out more processes in patches.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a four. Some of these processes have difficult exceptions that had to be handled, which is why we opted for the attended robots.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. The training is rich in content and the material, products, and methodologies are explained well. The concept of automation can be very easily digested by anyone, even if they are non-technical.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately a month and a half. I was not the person doing the configuration, but I managed the process through interaction with the technical team. It was a straightforward and easy process.

At the moment, we use Orchestrator, Studio, and unattended robots.

We invested in an RPA solution because competitors were doing it. They do it because it's the next wave of this industry, the fourth industrial revolution. Everyone's saying that you can't escape it. It's also because our company, in the shared services department, is thinking about how to challenge our existing models. Traditionally, you chose whether to take the processes onboard or streamline them offshore, but robotics and automation are a competitive alternative to outsourcing. It's very easy. We are challenging the status quo and making sure we're evaluating all our options effectively.

We also use it to fill information gaps between systems. Instead of having information run through standard APIs, we have it copied over from one system to another.

We run automations in a virtual environment, and the implementation was pretty easy and quick.

We used the Community Edition before purchasing our license. From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately one week. We found it to be very easy and very fast. We, as a Contact Center, usually face a lot of problems when we suggest any requirements. When we started with RPA, it took approximately one month for a very complex process to be automated.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a five. It is very easy. You can use the UI, or you can use APIs for the connection. In the end, you can do it.

Our primary use for this solution started with automating processes in finance, procurement, and HR. Now, we are researching various directions in logistics.

We do not run our automations in a virtual environment. This is something that we are trying to avoid.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a four. I'm an IT-based person, and for IT people it is easy to learn. UiPath claims that it is easy to learn and it's for everybody, but it's not true. For business people, it is hard to learn and hard to understand how to code to make things work. They need a lot of help with things like exception handling. If somebody lacks technical or programming skills then it makes it much more difficult to use. Although UiPath is getting closer to business users, there are still some basic skills that they need to have to make it work.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. When I get new hires it doesn't matter whether they have previous experience in RPA or development, they have to go through all of the basic training from the Academy. This includes the Orchestrator and I've been recommending SAP training because we are experiencing growth in the use of SAP. Going to my team, this is the base, and then we have created our internal framework and standards that also require training. Some people may already have experience with UiPath or Blue Prism, but they still need to take the training from the Academy.

Before I arrived at the company, there were already some automations running. However, fifteen months ago we shut down a couple of robots because they were failing terribly. From that time, it took us five months to create the first robot.

I am a developer so I primarily use Studio. Once the bots are developed they go to Orchestrator.

We have a combination of different use cases. Sometimes it deals with Outlook, the Microsoft Office Suite, or certain integrated web applications. You build a solution to integrate all of the applications that are part of the same process.

We do not run our automations in a virtual environment at the moment, but we are currently evaluating how we can do this.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a five. The majority of the simple tasks are done through recording, which saves on our development time. You just record the things that you want to achieve and then customize to get it going.

Since I was new to the product, I used the training. I took the developer training, as well as business analyst training. On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. It's truly very beneficial because you can just touch base with the actual tool and get it done.

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately six weeks. This was a complex use case and it worked well, so it was a good proof of value.

Lisa Bruecher says in an UiPath review
Manager at Vindelici Advisors GmbH

Our client's companies have extensive issues with SAP and getting information out of it. They have another technical ERP system with an in-memory database where they don't get the information out of it, then have to add it manually to SAP. That will be probably the first big use case for automation. So, we will get a bot reading it on the database from the Citrix environment and probably moving it to SAP.

The client will probably have it on-premise. They tend to be really risk adverse in terms of Cloud solutions. We have tried to get them to use the cloud more because it's just easier.

We are using Studio Orchestrator, and unattended bots. I have programmed attended bots before.

Right now, the primary use case is document retrieval from our client system. We are a healthcare billing company, so we have to pull things like medical records and different documents from hospital stays. So, we used the robots to pull those versus an FTE.

We have both unintended and attended robotics that we use. We haven't really delved into Studio a lot yet. That's going to be part of our staging and going into the next phase. We built all of our basic bots, so now we're going into the more complex bots.

We are on-premise. We were looking at moving to the cloud, so that will be something in our next steps.

We use Studio, Orchestrator, attended and unattended robots.

We use this solution to solve the things that people don't want to do. They spend a lot of time and there is a high potential to make manual errors. Quality suffers because it takes too long and users can get fatigued. There are the things that we are targeting and we have already seen some of the benefits.

We do not run our automations in a virtual environment.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a four. It is easy, but there are some improvements that can be made.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a five. It is my lifeline. 

From the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was approximately six to eight months. I felt that the process was complicated, in part because of UiPath but also partly because of internal things.

Internally, in order to get set up, the entire infrastructure needs to be in place. All of the servers have to be set up and you need the right permissions because the bots need their own security. You have to explain to people that this is going to be a service account, and you have to explain the need for it. These are all internal, but necessary issues.

Consultant at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees

I use Studio, Orchestrator, attended and unattended robots.

My primary use for this solution is back-office automation in a banking environment.

We run automations in a virtual environment, both for development and production. The robots are implemented in a development environment first, which is connected to Citrix. Once the process automation is finalized, including deployment and UAT has passed, we move the same file from the development Orchestrator to the production Orchestrator in the production environment. Production is also in Citrix.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a three. We have legacy Oracle applications and I'm finding it difficult to find selectors for the older, legacy systems.

On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a four. Some of the lessons are really easy, whereas others are more difficult, but you need to finish everything, otherwise you cannot go further. This is what I didn't like about it.

It took approximately one month to implement our first robot. Prior to purchasing the license, we implemented our PoC using the Community Edition. That took three weeks. After that, my company bought the license and it took about a week to put into production.

We are using Studio and Orchestrator.

Our primary use case is automating data processing for clients translating into other systems.

We do not run our automations in a virtual environment.

With respect to how easy it is to automate our company's processes, on a scale of one to five, I would rate this solution a three. I think that the technology that we use in the printing industry is a little more difficult to automate.

I am currently involved in the UiPath Academy training. We have third-party contractors who have been doing the development, and I am the first internal employee who will be developing. I find that the training is good in the first step, and also in the second step where we're learning about Orchestrator. However, when it moves to the third step and they are talking about the framework, I think that it is a pretty big leap and that is where I'm struggling. This is the section that I am in right now.

There was one project that was completed before I started, at my understanding is that from the point that we purchased our UiPath license until we had our first robot was less than six months. For my project, it has taken two months.

I primary use Studio, but I also use Orchestrator.

I develop robots for reducing tasks for our business users.

We run some of our automations in the Citrix virtual environment. We have found that the Citrix environment tends to present challenges, so it can take a little longer.

With a year and a half of experience, I am still learning with this platform. I find that the ease by which processes can be automated is not as much of an issue with the platform, but rather how it behaves with other applications that the robot controls. The learning curve is mostly how the robot behaves in maybe a Citrix environment, or in how it behaves with the applications that it's controlling. Sometimes they have their own little quirks that you have to learn.

I got started with this solution by using the Academy training. On a scale of one to five, judging how beneficial it is, I would rate the training a three. It is easier to get started because you are learning by experimenting.

As a developer, I use a lot of features included in the Studio or the robot products, but here are few that prove to be very helpful:

  • UiExplorer: This proves to be helpful in the case of trying selectors without the need of starting to work on the project itself, so it helps us estimate how many days we would likely to spend on the process and help the client decide if the ROI is worth it, or we need to consider other automation opportunities.
  • Workflow Analyzer: before testing to see if the process is working or not, there are a lot of checks that we have to do and a lot of rules to respect. This feature helps keep track of every element that exists in the workflow and gives us some insight into how we can alter some variables, sequences, and names to have better production quality.

The most valuable features are the UiPath studio tools with the recording feature to capture the navigation of the process on the screen.

The Excel data, which takes a lot of time to upload in software like Oracle and SAP, can be done through the screen instead of the back end.

I personally use the features of uploading the massive records from the front end through the UiPath studio instead of uploading them through the interface table, which sometimes gives an error resulting in having to troubleshoot and check the logs of the application. It has benefits of its own but sometimes in such cases, UiPath is very handy.

Kryon RPA: Studio
Yaniv Straus says in a Kryon RPA review
Delivery Manager at Delek

Take the training course. At least the person who is going to program the robots has to have some background in information systems in general and in more specific, operation systems, in programming and in Office, of course. He has to have a technical orientation, database knowledge would help him, as well as system analysis capabilities.

In terms of ease of use for business users, the only users are me and 2 other persons in the information systems department. Currently, we have only unattended implementations and no attended implementations which would require a user in the organization to operate it. As for programming it, it requires up-front training. The e-learning, at least at the time that we started working with Kryon, was not enough. Just the basics were there. When we tried to do some more complicated stuff, we had to understand it better. We took the four days of training. After that we started all of the implementations.

As for helping our workforce embrace digital transformation, I wouldn't relate Kryon to that, at least not yet. We are still not using it for digital processes or a digital environment. But we plan to do that in the upcoming weeks. There is a process to create a new customer, which today is very complicated. The last part is to just type the customer's details into the system. I'm thinking of using Kryon which would complete a fully digital process.

In terms of my rating of nine out of ten, there are many things that I'm not sure of. For example, it takes a while to launch the Studio, something like a couple of minutes. It could be that my laptop is not strong enough. It might be that our virtual server doesn't have all the necessary memory or CPU capabilities. It might be many things, so I don't want to say that it's only due to performance issues with Kryon.

We found a bug in a database trigger with Oracle Database. I know that it works mostly with the SQL server, but we are using Oracle, so that's another issue that came to mind. The fact is that we found this bug something like six months ago and it's still not in the new version. As far as it was communicated to me, it will be part of the next version. If that bug was critical for us, maybe I wouldn't have rated it a nine; maybe it would be a six or seven or eight. But, luckily for them, it's not highly critical for us. I don't know how they prioritize bug-fixing. I suppose that there are not too many Oracle Database organizations among their customers, at least not in our market. Therefore, maybe they prioritize this somewhere at the bottom. But for us it's a bug and we cannot use this functionality, which is required. That's why I took off one out of ten. Besides that, it works, it's stable, it has nice performance, and was, therefore, a good decision to go with it.

BI and Data Warehouse Developer at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees

It's hard to say whether the setup was straightforward or complex. I think it's quite simple. But because of all the security requirements for data at our bank, we couldn't do it in a straight way. We had to go a very different way, so it wasn't so straightforward. I don't know if it's our fault, because of all the security issues we have, or if it's a product fault. Let's put it at 50/50.

It took about a month-and-a-half, from the beginning of the deployment with Kryon, until we solved everything, and we could run our first process in a production environment.

Our deployment strategy included internal meetings, trying to map the processes we wanted to automate. Second, we started negotiations with Kryon for buying their product. Then we started learning the tool and how to work with it. At the same time, we started installing it on our server in our company.

After we finished the basic installation of the development studio, we started developing our processes. That was the month-and-a-half. We were installing the program and dealing with all the security issues. And at the same time, we mapped our processes and development.

After we finished with them, we continued mapping and identifying the other processes in our company. Kryon has been advising us, not only about installing, but also by giving us best practices on how to map and how to identify the processes that we can automate in our company.

Director at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

The initial setup took some time because there are a number of components. There is a server, Studio, etc., so it takes some time to set up properly. But once it is set up, it's easy to work with. But the initial setup requires some time.

Setting up a server typically takes three to five days. We go through a process where we regulate things, we make sure we validate the software, and we that we have approval. 

Our implementation strategy was to first set up a pilot. After the pilot, we wanted to go full-blown. That's when we looked at infrastructure for development, testing, and production. We then started bringing a lot more LOBs in, to grow and develop.

Justin Kruse says in a Kryon RPA review
Operations Consultant at LTCG

Its ability to work with multiple platforms within the same application or "wizard". Some of the SQL functionality has also been extremely helpful. All of our platforms are homegrown. We don't use an out-of-the-box software, which makes our availability to using RPA software suites pretty limited. Then, you have a product like Kryon which is flexible. We use PowerBuilder as our application building codex. Kryon adds flexibility when we have the functionality of SQL, where we can take sets of data out of the back-end and run complex computations or do a bunch of data validations inside the wizard. It can save us sometimes dozens of steps, then if we were to try and do those same reviews using the user interface completely. The balance that we get from using Kryon RPA, alongside being able to screen scrape and frequent screen, gives us an advantage that we haven't had previously with any of our other attempts at robotic process automation.

Kryon Process Discovery is a very exciting thing. We are rolling it out to approximately 100 VM machines, but we will be using it comprehensively for the next few years, as long as we can get it rolled out here soon and start gathering more information. It's been a very exciting thing for us here at LTCG.

We haven't finished rolling out Process Discovery. We only have it on three computers right now for the test environment. However, one of the most complex tasks that we are using two full-time employees to do was have it record and monitor these employees, along with all its variations, and how they are working through a process. We then exported that from Process Discovery into Studio. Now, instead of starting from scratch on a process that a developer wouldn't know, we have a framework and outline on how to make that work from end-to-end.

The bot is typically about twice as fast as a person and more accurate, as long as the data going in is good. That is the biggest advantage.

I do like the feature if you find an opportunity that it is very simple to export the recording of that process and import it into Kryon Studio as a starting point to build that automation. It's a really good tool for our business process managers because they can take all that information to their constituents in their departments. Even if it's not robot automation, they have an opportunity to improve the process as a whole. I find that that is an added benefit to this piece of the tool. Just using it as a place to start the conversation and really look at what people are doing on a day-to-day basis. Because managers may be aware of their people's tasks, but might not know the level of manual effort that it takes to do certain tasks. We are finding this helpful. Also, building it in Studio and deploying it into production is a seamless process. It is all very simple and easy to use.

It is just great to be able to traverse software platforms. With all the variable handling and  logic that it has, It is an easy tool for a non-technical person to work with and automate across apps. Some of our business people are like, "It's like a giant macro. It works with everything." I'm like, "Yeah, at the basic core, it's a giant macro." 

We primarily use it for unattended bots, so it's pure. We don't use any attended bots. So, it's all completely automated using email triggers.

The bot will put in whatever data it receives and it has been really quite effective.

The tool helps with speed to market on anything that we are doing. It is such a quick tool to use if you're doing any sort of automation, even if it's just SQL based.

This is our first RPA solution. We did try automation with Visual Studio, like encoding, but it was a failure. We thought RPA would be a better solution: easier to implement and error free. It made sense at the time, and it's still helping us out.

The most valuable feature would be Object studio - the ease of building automation, the development environment where you basically build the flows and the logic. The other aspect of value is its support for security controls and data integrity.

There are a lot of things that can be improved. I know most of the things are in the pipeline. They've now admitted, for example, a web-based control room would be much more beneficial. They're working on building that.

The solution needs a more out-of-the-box connector with leading applications around the world. There should be more flexibility to do some calculations on the goals from the studio itself. 

I personally would like the solution to be supporting more languages. 

There should be a digital exchange where users can download functions to incorporate into their existing processes.

INTELLIBOT: Studio
AswinSasi says in an INTELLIBOT review
Director at PERPETUAL CONCEPTS LLC

The most valuable feature varies from customer to customer. Some people want an end-to-end solution.

This solution offers both desktop process automation (DPA) and robotic process automation (RPA), and the users for each of these are different. 

The IntelliCapture feature is useful for the scanning and capturing of documents.

This solution is easy to use and requires little coding knowledge. Users can automate any process with only some basic knowledge of the INTELLIBOT studio.

This solution works seamlessly in the Citrix platform.

WinAutomation by Softomotive: Studio
Technical Lead & Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

We were really fortunate to use the version which has extended the EXEs, so once we make a development in the studio and we compile it, and make an EXE out of it, that EXE can be used on any number of systems. When it comes to identifying images and creating logic based on those images, or moving the mouse to an image, the image recognition randomly fails for unknown reasons, although we've had a lot of assistance around it, and the developers have put a lot of effort to make a way around it, but when the image recognitions fail, it just stays on the system.
