We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"You can scrape data into your tables, then easily transform it or convert it between formats."
"The UiPath website has a lot of information and the Academy offers a lot of courses. I heard from different people in different industries and markets that this is the best solution. It's worth a try. There is more work in the beginning when you are getting it set up. But there are a lot of benefits, and you don't have to wait months and months to see them. You can start seeing the benefits early on."
"The stability so far has been good."
"It is a single point of truth. There is no discrepancy or ambiguity. We can go to the leadership team, and say, "This is what it saves us on costs, man-hours, and effort that we used to do manually versus what we are doing now using the bots.""
"The most beautiful activity is sentiment analysis, where we can predict the good reviews and the negative reviews."
"The most valuable features are the UiPath studio tools with the recording feature to capture the navigation of the process on the screen."
"UiPath's ease of use for automating our company's processes is a five out of five. We have found it very easy to talk to them, identifying what can be done along with the potential use cases. They have been very good at guiding us through what is realistic at this point, how their robots could help us save time and improve accuracy, and how our users can engage with their robots, e.g., ensuring that users engage with the robots and use their product."
"The most valuable thing about this solution is that it is easy to develop and easy to train everyone how to use."
"The pricing of the solution is competitive, which is good for the Romanian market."
"The most valuable feature is that you can run multiple automations at the same time, in parallel."
"The solution is very easy to use. It's a code three platform that works very easily with documents to create custom automations."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to integrate across multiple systems."
"I find WinAutomation's linear approach to the code and function calling valuable."
"The technical support is good."
"The best feature is that it doesn't require any other connectivity."
"This product has an easy-to-use interface with nice detail in the features."
"There are minor bugs. Every major software has bugs. That said, all are solvable, all are resolvable, and it's not a very bad thing."
"Sometimes, in my experience, Picture In Picture is a bit buggy. It takes over your control, then the controls get mixed. That is one of few issues that I have found."
"Many of the features that UiPath has are good, although better documentation is required for them."
"If I can get a little bit more data and a little bit more customization on Orchestrator, that would be really great."
"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."
"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."
"There should be more growth, but the platform is there. As they grow those things they should take each piece and make it better. If you start with a good platform and you build it up, it's going to get better. What we have today is very usable, and is only going to get better. I look forward to it."
"We don't use the UiPath Apps feature yet. I did a PoC on it and it looks like a wonderful product. But when we are using Action Center with Apps, the Action Center stage is built in Orchestrator, but the same field is not built in the Apps... UiPath Apps should be stepped up in terms of its functionality and integration with other UiPath products."
"The OCR functionality needs to be improved."
"It should work better for Angular websites, as it has a lot of problems."
"The solution could offer more specific training. There should be more examples of what the functions can do and more instructions and explanations to the process."
"The stability of the product is not very good and can even fail with simple projects."
"One of the challenges is dealing with OCR text recognition."
"WinAutomation is scalable to a certain extent. I would rate it seven for the scalability, which could be better. Softomotive is better scalable than WinAutomation in this regard."
"The solution could use some more advanced AI tools. It's one of the solution's only weaknesses."
"There is a limitation in setting up loops, where it does not support multiple conditions."
"Overall, I think that the pricing is reasonable and it is similar to competitors."
"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."
"The price of Orchestrator is pretty high in general as well as compared to other solutions, because Automation Anywhere does not charge for its Control Room."
"The pricing is okay, but I recommend to build a business case before going live. Ensure that you really use the license and building the robot makes sense. Try to think of multiple use cases, because one license can be used for several robots."
"If you purchase an Orchestrator then it's pricey but you receive the benefit that it runs many processes simultaneously."
"There are different licensing options and you should study which one better suits your company's needs."
"I think the setup cost is quite nominal, but the licensing might be on a higher side when compared to Automation Anywhere."
"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."
"This is a cost-effective RPA solution."
"This solution is reasonably priced and offers a free trial period."
