We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I would say that the cross-integration between different modules, such as between the OCR, RPA, and ML, is the most valuable feature."
"UiPath Studio's UI automation activities help me in easily developing automation. It is difficult for RPA developers to write complex code because no one knows everything about all automation areas. For UI automation, it is not mandatory for a developer to know how to write the code for the element on the screen that needs to be clicked or typed into. The UI automation packages of UiPath provide built-in activities, and developers can directly drag and drop and indicate the element on the screen that needs to be clicked or typed into."
"Once we deploy the automation into the production, our manpower has been reduced so there are only one or two people needed for the backup. The rest will be taken care of by the automation itself. So, there has been a drastic reduction in our workforce."
"I can easily get support from the UiPath forum and through the mail."
"If we have one place where we can see the end-to-end journey of our automations, then I do not need to manage multiple licenses. I do not need to spend money and expertise hiring multiple people and training them on multiple platforms. Also, when upgrading the systems, if I have a one place where I can manage all my automations at the same time, including UI and background automations, then we can build low-code apps using UiPath Apps. Therefore, I can manage everything within one platform, which is either a UiPath Intelligent Automation platform or UiPath Cloud. This is very important. Because if I have multiple systems, then I need multiple stakeholders to manage, upgrade, and maintain them."
"Quality of life improvements such as the multiple assign activity and more recently, the ability to change arguments to variables and vice versa are very appreciated."
"The inbuilt RE Framework makes development easier and fast."
"They have also recently added a feature for attended automation, Picture in Picture, which is also nice to have. It's helpful because you don't want to just sit back and let the bot run and not work during that attended automation. Using the PiP feature, you can have it running on your desktop without having to interrupt it to your work."
"We had a cost reduction of approximately 20% in our operations."
"Better training and better accessibility of the tools are the things that need to be improved."
"UiPath Studio supports three types of workflows: sequence, flowchart, and state machine. Flowchart and state machine are good. Sequences are also good, and they're for linear workflows. However, in a sequence, as we keep on dragging and dropping the reusable components, the size of the screen increases. If we drag and drop the conditional or looping activities on the site, the screen size increases in length and breadth, and it becomes too complex for a developer to navigate between activities."
"We have mixed reviews for the technical support and depending on the topic, they will answer faster or slower, more personalized or not."
"One of the products where I would definitely see a need for improvement would be a Task Capture."
"UiPath could improve integration with other platforms, like the SAP platform. I heard that SAP has their own automation processes in their platform and they are trying to avoid integrations with RPA platforms. Sometimes, that can be difficult. UiPath's room for improvement is having the ability to integrate with as many platforms as possible."
"The combination of Orchestrator and Studio is a bit on the higher side, price-wise, for some companies."
"For a few of the projects, we have saved money, however, on a few of these projects we've noticed less revenue. The orchestration cost is a bit higher when we are working on smaller projects."
"The pricing could be more transparent. Overall, I think the pricing is fine, but they keep changing it. It should be more structured. They don't have to tell us what their pricing is, but they should publish how the product is broken down."
"In exception handling, wherever exception occurs, the out arguments are not being passed. It would be good if there is a way to pass the out arguments."
"I am currently using the Community Version, free of charge."
"Different licenses are used to activate features that the organization wants to use. For example, they offer licenses for UiPath Studio X, attended automation, unattended automation, document understanding, and so forth."
"This solution is worth the investment."
"I'm not sure about licensing and pricing, but the pricing for their certification is a little bit more. Previously, we could do it for no price."
"The price of UiPath is higher than competitors, although the cost depends on what functionality and tools you require"
"I can't speak to the exact price, however, recently I heard in a meeting that one license for Studio Path costs 2,825 Euros per year. This price is approximate and may fluctuate."
"Do your research, the infrastructure piece is important to understand before purchasing."
"Over and above the subscription fees, we're paying probably $51,000 a year right now."
