We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The studio design is fine compared to other similar products. There is nothing extraordinary about it, but at the same time, there are not any negatives."
"There is no coding at all required to implement a complex business process. If you have some programming background, it will help you. However, if you are a business user, you can still develop simple processes."
"The automated recording helps quite a bit. You record a complete business process along with human interactions to the desktop or web application. You can easily manipulate them. Once you are done, you have a complete recording of the interactions, which you can use to tweak your requirements."
"The OCR feature is very handy to extract structured and semi-structured data from documents."
"This solution has increased productivity in our organization."
"It is easy to manage the robotics environment with Orchestrator, including scheduling and reporting."
"This solution has improved business by facilitating increased speed and accuracy."
"Ease of deployment means that business benefits can be developed quickly and easily."
"We really like the Orchestrator and how I'm able to see what's going on with all of the different automations."
"In the future, they should have a similar version for the cloud and on-premises, and the installation should be flawless within few minutes."
"Tech support takes time replying to queries. It should be improved."
"You can't write small snippets of code. If you want to do a single code snippet, this is not available by default."
"Extending the UiPath studio in terms of UI and functionality would improve this solution."
"Better alignment of workflows for development is needed."
"Optical character recognition for hand written documents could be improved."
"Templates had to be created for different formats."
"Additional help with ROM and approach would be an improvement."
"On the development side, more documentation on how to structure the setup for different environments would be helpful."
"The licensing for this solution should have a more competitive pricing model. The price is in the top five of similar products."
"Licensing should be reduced and price should be cut down a bit."
"This solution has a very competitive and flexible pricing scheme that depends on the process complexity."
"With respect to the cost, you're going to recognize the savings immediately for the cost of the tool."
"It's the same as what you would see on any of their list prices. There is also a corporate discount because of scale. Overall, we think it was a competitive price offering. They were the cheapest out of the three, so that's why we went with them."
"The licensing costs for the unattended bots are a little too expensive."
"I can estimate our licensing costs are approximately $100,000 USD per year."
"We got purchased the basic minimum package and it was around $35,000 USD, annually."
"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."
