We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The second thing that I like about Datacap is the fingerprint capture which is easy to configure on Datacap. From the form of the document, if a document is redundant in the same department, we can configure the capture based on the form of the documents"
"The solution automates manual data entry."
"We really like the Orchestrator and how I'm able to see what's going on with all of the different automations."
"The Orchestrator is great because you schedule it, and that's it, you don't have to worry about it."
"I like Orchestrator and how easy it is to manipulate and get your data, to see what's going on."
"The software itself is relatively straightforward and easy to use."
"I think the most valuable feature is being able to run processes in an unattended way where we can schedule them, and then have the report sent to the process owner's inbox in the morning."
"The main value within Orchestrator is definitely the scheduling aspect. That includes the way you can prioritize work and use queuing systems to make sure they're at the right points in time, as well as whether they'd be long term related, especially if we're looking at finance."
"All of the features are valuable. I think the best feature for Russian government customers is security. Security in Orchestration for requiring credentials. Our customer are usually serious about security."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the unattended robots because I can schedule my jobs and it can run on its own."
"The interface can be more intuitive."
"I would like better ease of use and more support options."
"On the development side, more documentation on how to structure the setup for different environments would be helpful."
"We had some issues with instability for which we were never able to determine the root cause."
"One of the things we're struggling with it how to project how many robots we need to do these processes, so better documentation or assistance in this regard would be useful."
"Enhanced capability in the document management space would be a huge benefit to our organization."
"I would like to see a biweekly scheduling option in Orchestrator."
"One of the issues is with the acquisition of new types of software and new companies. It's important to introduce process documentation and make sure that it's not just making it look like UiPath products, but making it feel and act like one to us. They need to make sure it's embedded and the integration is seamless. They should just keep improving how easy it is to use. I think it's very good already, but there's always room for improvement."
"I would like to see more AI features with data classification and computer reason. I think it would be great to have more features in full monitoring robots."
"We sometimes struggle trying to figure out what kind of a bot we need to use for what kind of work, and it would be nice to have more clarity on this."
"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."
"We have a cost model for operating expense savings. It is usually about $100,000 to $125,000 and takes us six weeks to develop and implement. That's development, testing, and implementation. We do code reviews on everything. That does not include all the documentation, assessment, etc."
"There are cheaper options than UiPath."
