UiPath Review

The best part is you do not need to check anything manually

What is our primary use case?

Gone are the days when you have to deploy 100s of people for repeated tasks. We regularly update invoices of different channels and merchants to our workflow. Capturing each invoice requires some human attention. There are chances of using OCR or text-based extraction of invoices. We easily automate each type of invoice extraction to our spreadsheet. This reduces one hour (max 1.5 hr) of 100 employees in our organization.

How has it helped my organization?

Majorly replacing all the remote freelancers who were doing the copy-paste work for us to fetch invoices at low pay; they are now set free. We do not hire them, rather our UiPath robot does that, thus reducing the cost.

What is most valuable?

The best part of UiPath is you do not need to check anything manually. Whatever error comes, the robot automatically gets stopped rather than infiltrating absurd values in the next process.

What needs improvement?

We have deployed the technology for six months. We are facing a major challenge in front of us. The invoice automation can only be done when the invoices are on the website. Usually, we fetch invoices from partner websites as PDF. Thus we are doing extra work of converting the pdf to RPA readable file. If we had dedicated channel of PDFs then it would have worked but it is not like that. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.
