UiPath Valuable Features

Jeremy Gilliland
Chief Automation Officer at JOLT
This is going to be an interesting answer, but the most valuable feature of the software is not the software itself, but the community that supports it. When I first started learning the software to support a program, I had to self-teach; there wasn't a budget for training. But going through their learning platform and then connecting with the community when I didn't understand how to utilize some of the functionality, that was far more powerful than the product itself. The network around the product is amazing. The great thing about the UiPath RPA Academy is that it's not stagnant. Even though my first go at getting certified as a developer was three years ago, I literally have to go back the Academy and learn it every year because there are new features and new functionality. An example is the RE Framework they've incorporated. The living nature of the Academy gives a lot of value. But hands-down, the way that they give practical exercises, the fact that they give you applications you can download to learn how to interact with bots by simulating an actual operational environment, makes it a very impactful learning experience. In addition, I find the solution easy to use. I have personal experience using all three of the major software vendors that are in this space right now, including Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism, and I would put UiPath as number-one, specifically from a learning perspective. I've been able to take people with absolutely zero technical background and quickly scale them up in a matter of weeks so they're building bots. I haven't been able to accomplish that same feat with the other platforms. View full review »

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 is great for us, and we use it a lot. It saves the users a lot of time, and we're able to do a lot more for a user than they were ever able to do on their own. View full review »

A lot of the value from this solution comes from Studio and the activities. They really enable us to make things happen accurately, with the clicks and the types they support. Of all the automation tools I've tried or used, they seem to be the most accurate and most consistent. The Orchestrator management tools are growing a lot and are constantly improving.

The attended and unattended classification and simplicity are great, and it's easy to explain to people. Right off the bat, the task performing the lowest granular entity is very clearly defined, which is something that I like. I really like that I am able to tell the story, using Orchestrator, how humans work, how bots work, and how humans and bots work together. Orchestrator really tells a lot more than just being a simple task manager. View full review »

What I think is the best thing about UiPath is that it is fairly easy to understand and learn how to use it. One of the most valuable things about the product is the improvement they are making with the tools. They are offering around thirteen new products now. With these additions, there is a lot of value-added enhancement that we can provide via the automation to augment what we already have implemented. The studio's Orchestrator is the tool that we use in order to create the scripts for the bot. It is what enables us to deliver automation. Having these new technologies within the studio is what enables us to be more creative. With the Orchestrator we can monitor the bots, we can "orchestrate" them, and we can deliver that tool to customers so that they can manage their bots. It is really like digital workforce management. If we created a bot for a business, usually it would just do its job and the customer would not see what the bots are really doing. With this tool, the client has that opportunity to see what the bots are doing. The bots automate the work that otherwise would have to be done with other interventions and resources, so reallocation of resources and focus is the most valuable thing overall. View full review »

The most valuable features provide solutions for when I am using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. It easily integrates with Google OCR, Microsoft OCR, and ABBYY OCR. We are using that integration feature to incorporate OCR mostly for reading scans. To interact with Google OCR, Microsoft OCR, or Abby OCR, you don't need to implement a separate component but you can just — in a blink of an eye — integrate those peripheral solutions into the UiPath Studio and use them in your automated processes. If we can integrate other features that are not part of UiPath, it makes it far more useful in automation. In this case, UiPath is not building out an actual OCR component but they are just giving you an option to incorporate the other OCRs. That is very valuable. View full review »

The most valuable features are the unattended bots. Initially, we are going to be looking at a number of attended bots in a pilot phase for our HR internal operations personnel. We are going to come in and try to remove tasks from their daily lives, such as ten minute tasks brought down to five seconds, or we could just completely eliminate them, making them unattended. The training and certification online is very helpful. The software is easy to use, as a drag and drop function. Even if it wasn't, the type of support that we get from the people who work for UiPath is paramount to the capability of the tool. The ease of use has exceeded our expectations. View full review »
Shashi Singh
Director of Shared Services Automation at Virign Media Business
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. In terms of Studio, it's just getting easier to use. Studio X is basically the embodiment of that. Even at this point in time with the current Studio version, anyone could pick this up and run with it to develop simpler automations. The best feature about unattended robots is that they do exactly what you ask them to do. They are as reliable as the code that you provide them with. I think as long as you've got the right governance in place, such as IDs you have created, and you looped in the right teams, the robots are just the shell that will do exactly what you ask them to do.

Assistant VP of Robotics at Open Logix
The Orchestrator is great because you schedule it, and that's it, you don't have to worry about it. It will tell you what passed and what failed if it had any issues. We don't have that dependency on someone needed to schedule tasks. The code in Studio is easy to follow. I am not a developer, but I am able to read the code. When we have problems, the developer will display the script and I'm able to read it and follow it. Several times, I have been able to see where there was an error and the developer was able to fix it. It looks like it's easy to code. View full review »
Ethan Brown
Sr Software Developer at a construction company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable features to us are the ability to provide a tableau-like experience that people who are not traditional software developers can avail themselves of. A lot of the users that I work with are not coders per se, but because UiPath is easy to use, it allows them to automate things that then frees up another developer to do something else. I would say the management features of Orchestrator, the out of the box reporting, the general UI and UX, and Studio are the best features that we've found in the product. When I said "tableau-like", I mean that a lot of times companies have really good technical software packages but they don't fully understand their users. UiPath is calibrating itself well to where they scale down for power users so I'm able to do really powerful things with it. At the same time, it's simple and easily approachable enough that someone who does not have that background can pick it up and start getting on. The onboarding pass seems very nice.

The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is user-friendly. I was a coding developer, so I know how to write code, and I've also used other RPA tools. This solution is workflow-driven, where you can easily relay what you had written. If someone has to read the code, it is very readable. Second, I've always been a Microsoft technology guy, and they have provided the facility where we can implement any of the C# code into it. We have .NET code, and that's why I like it. We say it's a tool, but I would say it can also be leveraged as a custom coding tool. We can actually do whatever custom code you want. View full review »
Rene Abel Christensen
RPA Process Consultant at Statens Administration
The ability to integrate between legacy systems is the most valuable feature. We use it mainly to replicate manual processes, where you just have to pull out data or pull down large volumes of customer information, in general. We work across many individual customers, who are individual entities or individual databases in our ERP system. We work across about 220 databases. Therefore, the task of logging onto different databases alone is quite cumbersome. The main thing is to make data available to the employees when they start working mornings, instead of them starting drawing out reports to see if there is anything that they need to act upon. With these legacy systems, which work on a one-to-one basis, we tried to batch process them a lot more. View full review »
Ever Espinoza

The most valuable feature in UiPath is different from one process that we build to the next. I would say that the ease of configuring new processes may be one of the most consistently valuable features for our robot production. Creating a process is just a drag-and-drop solution most of the time. With this automated feature for process creation, it is very easy to make what we need, and that ease-of-use is valuable.

Automati62f1
Automation Engineer at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
The number-one valuable feature is the ease of use. I come from a development background where I wrote a lot of code. The fact that you have these activities with pre-built functionality is great. You can drag them in and use them as shortcuts to get to an end result faster than if you had to do it in a programming language. UiPath exceeded my expectations in this area. Also, the training that's available through the UiPath RPA Academy, as well as the community - the forums, where you can ask questions - both are helpful. The community is a good way to see what others are doing and learn tips and tricks for the platform. That's very useful in comparison to other companies that do RPA but don't have robust training.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the ease of using it. This includes the way the activities are set up, and how easy it is to solve problems by searching with Google if we're stuck. We did not have to do a lot of customization because the standard UiPath activities fit our needs. This is a big point for us because we end up customizing most of the products that we use just to satisfy our own business needs. In the case of Studio, we didn't have to create a lot of custom activities. View full review »

The most valuable features for me in Studio can be anything that helps me test or debug. It saves me a lot of time and it saves our QA team a lot of time setting up separate environments, test data, and things like that. The most valuable thing in Orchestrator is just how easy it is and the fact that it's cloud-based. It is also useful in that it allows non-technical users to get information about their projects. For example, they can find out if independent components are up and functioning; if something is down they can find out what went wrong. View full review »

The most valuable features for us are the recording tools. They allow the capture of user actions on the screen and then the recordings can be converted into workflow sequences. The activities are very simple to use and easy to put together in order to automate the processes. Once we get Orchestrator, that feature will probably be the most valuable, but we are currently not able to put it into production. View full review »

Daniel Lombard

I think it's the ease of use for the developer, so we can actually make use of people within subject matter experts rather than having fully fledged developers, so that's one of the main features. And, I think, based on that, it is actually the speed in which we can deliver some of these automations, so the delivery and the build of the box is actually much quicker than your conventional development, so those will be my two top points at this stage.

Capitalize on the unattended automation, as there are a lot of different methods to evoke and schedule it. You can email it, trigger it via API bots or Orchestrator. There are a lot of different methods you can use. We don't really do a whole lot of attended. Not that we wouldn't at some point, but unattended is nice because it's out of sight and out of mind. Set it up and let it go. We are the first company to bring UiPath Academy in-house on the 30th of September. When we signed our licensing agreement, we added it in our own LMS. So, we have that connection and everything else. We love it. We've implemented all of their modules: RPA Starter, all three of the development courses, Solution Architect, Business Analyst, and Build a Bot. It's super exciting. It's one of the best things that we've done. I would rate it a five out of five. View full review »

Russell Barrett
Robotic Sales Specialist at T-Impact
For us, it's the ability to offer as a subscription model. We looked at the other competitors to UiPath, and we found that the way of delivery that we offer is a subscription model. It's a very, very small upfront fee and a monthly cost, and UiPath gives us the flexibility to do that. Some of the other vendors don't do that because they sign you up for ten licenses over three years, and it's just not practical for us. From a cost perspective, it's not really relevant. It's really about the processes they're trying to automate. A lot of people are doing data de-duplication and data onboarding, so an attended robot is absolutely fine. Whereas when we're trying to do things like answering an email, an inbound email, set up a process, respond to that client, then a 24/7 unattended robot is the way to go. We use a mix of that with our client base. View full review »
Cristian Paun
Head of Business Transformation & Procurement at Lombard
When you build a house, if you do not have a strong foundation, it's just going to fall apart, so, for us, it's a pillar. It's not the only one, but it is the cherry on the cake, that it is the one that is actually enabling the business to go further and to provide better services to our clients. At least for our case, I would say it's not the cost that was driven by attended or unattended robots. At the end of the day, my department, business transformation, I am there to transform the business for better. In some cases, you have processes in which you still need human interaction, you still need somebody to validate and make sure that, once all the data are prepared for you in the onboarding process, you certified and you double checked four eyes principle that everything is correct. In some cases you do need the attended robot. In some other cases, tax reporting for instance, you can just run it unattended and it's perfectly. You don't even need to know it. Before morning, you have the report prepared for your local authorities, and that is fine, so I think it's just a mix, depending on your business and how it's bringing much more value to you. Sometimes, it's only attended, sometimes, it's unattended, but I think, in most of the cases, you will have in any companies a mix between attended and unattended. View full review »

The most valuable feature right now is we have been able to utilize our staff better with the bots. We can put them on more high priority items.

For me, the biggest feature is that my developers love it. And if my developers are happy, then I'm happy. We're totally agnostic and we use multiple providers. But the developers definitely absolutely adore the product. The speed that in which it can be deployed is something I really like as well because that cuts down on delivery times. I also like the ease of use. I like the fact that we can program our own .NET to plug into it and there are APIs for multiple different solutions, and the convenience of artificial intelligence and machine-learning and those types of capabilities as well.

There are pre-built activities, which let you build stuff quickly. It is a functionality where you can record, as a baseline, what a process looks like. Then, you can iterate off of that to build the bot and make it more stable. That is pretty nice because it saves you time. It also lets you display something very quickly, so you can see exactly how it's going to work. View full review »
Richard Denton

Orchestrator has valuable scheduling and being able to run things on demand and dynamically as well allocating the transaction, and the studio are good features. Nothing stands out in particular. Everything's kind of equal, it just depends on the task you need to complete. With an unattended robot, you can schedule it and have it running autonomously. The solution is quick and easy to implement. It's fairly easy, and it means clients don't have to get IT involved. If you get IT involved in anything there's always blockers and there are always other priorities. View full review »

Sr Digital Transformation Consultant at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
It is easy to use. That is definitely one thing that attracts people. I really like the feature that you get to record actions. I wish that feature was a bit more advanced where I could build more automation. Sometimes, you have to stop the robot because the robot doesn't get the level of detail that I am expecting to see in the automation. Then, you have to stop the bot, and stop or break the recording. While it's nice in creating a first sort of brush off your automation, I wish it would just go a step further. I really like the new products that were announced here. The apps have a lot of potential. I'm interested in learning more about that in the next few months. The same thing with StudioX. Although, it would be interesting to see if they're more business-friendly or not. While UiPath is advertised as a low code platform, you can't put it in the hands of a business user. They have no idea what some of the features are. Some things, they need to have extensive training and be tech savvy in several things before they can go there. Several of us took training using the UiPath Academy. I thought the UiPath Academy was very intuitive and easy to use. I would give it a five out of five rating. View full review »

Orchestrator lets you start a credential stair, so you can get the credentials in a safe way. Before this, they were afraid that credentials would be stored somewhere and people could see them. I think it's really important for our customers that you can do that in Orchestrator. The scheduling feature is also valuable of course. In terms of ease of use, I would rate this solution as four out of five. I think it's very easy, but our customers are sometimes not so technical. When they come from the business side, it's somehow hard for them to understand. I would give the RPA Academy training program five out of five. Without it, I don't think I could have started implementing this solution. I did the developer program just for a general understanding of how everything works: how Orchestrator works and how it all works together. For me, it was really important to do the training then. It was very good, so I really liked it. View full review »

Process Architect at a insurance company with 201-500 employees
As we are mostly using unintended robots right now, the main value we see is the ability for the solution to take away the redundant tasks. That's the key value. But there's tremendous potential in the attended or hybrid model. The value I see there is allowing people to automate partially or at a time. Whether that's something that we've identified clearly now or something that we look at in the future, I think that lives in the attended or hybrid piece. It would be nice to just see what more we could do and what more value we could add to the business there. On a scale of one to five, I would validate the ease of use to maintain our processes almost at five now that the solution has introduced Studio X. Studio X has the potential of empowering people to prototype and then pass along more qualified information. It's a game-changer. Right now just being able to capture process, even without Studio X, let's say we video it or we capture it by way of a traditional Vizio diagram, enables asking work instructions, etc. It allows us to capture and standardize what people are doing as well as take steps toward optimizing processes in general. It's all good stuff. I wouldn't know without looking at the actual metrics, but I would say in general our pay projects probably cut time by factors. Simply because people do things more slowly, more inefficiently. They're interrupting where the bot is not. That's the reason why we love it so much. The potentials of cost and time savings and the possibility of really having people get some of their time back is great. View full review »
BryanGraham

It has a core tool set of things in use to quickly put together an automation, whether it's interacting with an application or website. It gives you the tool kit that you need to quickly put something together. Very often, we can create something in a very short time frame, like in less than a day, and show it to someone. Then, they can see the immediate value of the solution. UiPath was easy to use when I first came into it. Though, I have a software developer background, so a lot of the concepts were very easy for me. UiPath has a whole bunch of online courses in the UiPath Academy. These are very helpful on understanding the capabilities of the tool and some of the nuisances of it. View full review »

Having looked at other RPA software, I think UiPath is the most user-friendly. At the same time, it's robust enough to customize and get into the source code. It's accessible, but also has enough features for more hands-on developers to be able to do what they need to do. From the two that I've seen, it was the more user-friendly one. I have used UiPath's Academy for some of the foundational level training, not the more advanced ones. I think I had some feedback at the time. It's been a few months since I've taken it.

The graphical user interface of the UiPath Studio is fantastic. For someone who is not a computer science major, or for someone who doesn't know how to code but is really good with visual flows, Studio makes it very easy for those individuals to build robots. That's one of the best features that I've seen. There are other features that add different values, but Studio, in my opinion, is definitely one of the best. Overall, UiPath is really easy to use. For example, if somebody is an automated tester, they spent a lot of time trying to identify selectors, and UiPath makes it really easy to find those selectors. You will run into instances where you have to do some manual manipulation to make sure that the correct selectors are identified. But if it's a pretty straightforward instance and you are using something like Selenium, it is very tedious. Whereas, if you use something like UiPath, it is really easy. View full review »

I like that it's very flexible, so we can design our automation the way we need to. Some other RPA tools don't really allow us to use all the applications that for our team. It's also very easy to use. There is a lot of drag-and-drop. There are many different ways to complete a solution. For example, if we're trying to manipulate Excel data, sometimes one solution will be really slow and ineffective, but UiPath gives us the ability to find multiple ways to do the same thing and complete the same solution much more quickly.

It is really a package that has to be put together. View full review »

The platform is object-orientated. You can create and reuse objects, which is a great feature.

This is another great feature, and one of the reasons that we initially chose the product as our platform. The solution is easy to use.

The value for us is that it resembles the native tools that most people have grown accustomed to. Most people come from another company where they may not have used Active Roles. Active Roles resembles traditional tools like Microsoft's, which is really good because it eases the way people interact with the tool. AD and AAD management features are really good. They're better than native tools; they offer an added value. They show more fields than traditional tools, such as password age and status of things that you normally wouldn't see. We still have the mailbox and user information all on one screen, whereas in native tools, you need two tools to show that information. View full review »
Storm Pracht
RPA Developer at Security benefit
I don't know all of the features so the scope of my view is a little limited as to what may be best or most valuable overall. For me, the ease of use is definitely valuable. Assembly of processes is just drag-and-drop and that simplifies a lot of things. Annotation is also very easy to do and it helps to make things clear to understand during development. I can go look at someone else's code and within an hour understand what it's doing without having to consult the other developer. On a scale from one to five where one is very difficult and five is great, I would rate the ease of use of the platform a four. View full review »

As a product, the stability that it brings in, the volume of transactions it's able to handle, and some of the leading feature functionality in terms of AI and cognitive capability. It's absolutely brilliant. We are focused more on the unattended space. That's where our predominant offering is. Though in the newer version of UiPath, there are new features coming up in the attended space, which we might have a look at. From a cost point-of-view, since it's a platform offering, we are able to offer it as a service so it's not a price per robot that we typically charge our customers. It's a slightly different model.

UiPath allows people to do more value-added work. I found that we were able to take a person well versed in access programming and convert them to be an RPA developer with relative ease. The UiPath Academy RPA training is phenomenal. Just the fact that they offer that information is a huge selling point for them. I continually share links to the site and I encourage people to go out. I tell them to take the training if they want to learn more. I started the technical training, but I kind of oversee the program, so I didn't have to learn all of it. Nevertheless, just the awareness of what RPA is and those intro-functional courses were very informative. View full review »

With the robotics and management of Orchestrator, we are able to kick things off. We are starting to get more out of the scheduling of these and into more on demand triggered events, such as a RESTful service calls and things of that nature. The ease of using the platform for automating your company's processes is a five out of five. It is super simple. Everyone who we have in our robotics team had no experience with automation or robotics previously. They went online took the classes from UiPath. They started with the Community Edition, just to play with it themselves, then they were probably experts within a couple of months. View full review »

I've literally used all the applications that are in the market, and UiPath has been, by far, the best. Another prime factor is that it scales up horizontally and is on the cloud, on AWS cloud.

Maria Evert Riveros

It is very easy to make beautiful, clear, well-documented workflows that clearly reflect the process. This is an achievement that is not always feasible with regular code. Even though each activity in UiPath is like a line of code, the user interface in Studio and the use of states, flowcharts, and sequences make it so easy to understand the overall process and get an overview of what is actually happening. UiPath is easy to use, and it CAN be used by non-programmers, but it is even better to use for programmers. It allows us to make very robust and effective solutions because we have all the functionality of the powerful .NET Framework library within reach, all while the UI makes it possible to create truly beautiful solutions.

It has a simple user interface. We used to have the training onsite Friday and Thursday, and while I personally have a computer science and web development background, a majority of the people there were finance and were procurement who didn't have any technical background. Yet, they are able to learn it because of the GUI and hotkeys, because it is just enter, drag this there, and do that. You don't have to write any code. You simply click function, open an Excel file, and open web browser, then you just grab and drag it. This makes it easy to understand what you have to do and where you have to put fields.

I know that UiPath is releasing an updating debugger but I think that's been very intuitive for me as well. I would rate the ease of use of the platform for automating my company’s processes a four out of five because, for me, there's still a lot of clicks and keystrokes I need to do for development. I know that UiPath is releasing StudioX, which is something that is needed, for people like me who aren't super technical. I would rate UiPath Academy RPA training a five out of five.

The most valuable feature for us has been the ability to take data out of where we have it — Excel sheets or wherever it may be — and translate it into customer-owned Citrix environments. Our primary core is engineering. A lot of our business requires us to take data what we have developed as part of the design process and relay that into work orders or other process triggers, ordering triggers, or material ordering, or different things for our clients. Allowing us to interface local data with Citrix environments is going to be a big deal. View full review »

Screen scraping credentials of whatever features that it has. The robot can log into the system, scrape the data, and enter the data into the system. This eliminates a lot of the manual work that the team had to do, which has improved the performance. Our teams used to do a lot of data entry, and this repetitive work has been reduced. The same resource can now work on some high-end work. The ease of the use is good and exceeded my expectations. The implementation became easier and more standardized. Also, our development time has been reduced. Using ReFrameWork, we saw that the code become organized very nicely by UiPath and the implementation became easier and more standardized with more prebuilt components, which reduced development time. If you load the ReFrameWork nicely, you can do things faster and more standardized. View full review »

Orchestrator's value really comes from scheduling and jobs, where robots can trigger other robots. I can't speak to the new versions yet, but they all seem great. Attended is where the human and robot interaction can happen seamlessly. With unattended, some of the processes that were earlier so mundane are all being done without any human interaction, so that provides true end-to-end uninterrupted automation. I would rate the ease of use for this solution as five out of five. The UiPath Academy RPA training is awesome. It's top of the line, so I would also say that it should get a five out of five rating.

The most valuable features are the UiPath studio tools with the recording feature to capture the navigation of the process on the screen. The Excel data, which takes a lot of time to upload in software like Oracle and SAP, can be done through the screen instead of the back end. I personally use the features of uploading the massive records from the front end through the UiPath studio instead of uploading them through the interface table, which sometimes gives an error resulting in having to troubleshoot and check the logs of the application. It has benefits of its own but sometimes in such cases, UiPath is very handy. View full review »

When I was first introduced to UiPath, I stated that I am very adamantly not a coder. I hate code, lines, and missing that semicolon somewhere in there. Being able to understand that your path is structured as a process flow, you are still able to declare variables, and ensure the background logic is sound. You are also able to really visualize what the process needs to do and the paths that it needs to take: true, false, etc. So, it has been very useful in terms of crafting it. View full review »

I'm developing my first bot, so I can't answer that yet. I've just got my UiPath certification, been thrust into a project which I'm pretty excited about. I don't know what our client is going to ask as of yet. Obviously, those parameters are probably going to change weekly, if not daily. I think there's some scalability to UiPath that's going to make everything pretty convenient and easy to use. The tool is very simple, even for a layman like myself without a coding background. It's a gateway to the process automation industry. I think this is really the simplest and easiest way to do it. I used the UiPath Academy and got a certification. It was very easy to use, they are very patient, but it's not automatic. They are very diverse and applications are necessary. The steps just take you all the way through. If you reach a stopping point, you can literally just start over. Then you can try again with another series of questions, some more accessibilities, or different paths towards the same outcome. I loved it. I thought it was pretty simple and pretty easy to use. It's very non-stressful. Regarding automation, we serve the federal government here, so I'm working for a very specific division in my company. We're serving the client, so I don't even know how new and exciting this is going to be. This is going to be huge. I think we're right on the cusp of all of it. The sky's the limit.

However, after a short bit of training, you can start doing stuff, and the more you learn, the better you become. There are so many workarounds. It allows you to do complicated things in such an easy way. UiPath has provided so many APIs that make it easy to interact with other databases or applications without even going into them.

As a developer, I use a lot of features included in the Studio or the robot products, but here are few that prove to be very helpful: * UiExplorer: This proves to be helpful in the case of trying selectors without the need of starting to work on the project itself, so it helps us estimate how many days we would likely to spend on the process and help the client decide if the ROI is worth it, or we need to consider other automation opportunities. * Workflow Analyzer: before testing to see if the process is working or not, there are a lot of checks that we have to do and a lot of rules to respect. This feature helps keep track of every element that exists in the workflow and gives us some insight into how we can alter some variables, sequences, and names to have better production quality.

I would say the most valuable features of UiPath are the scalability and the stability of the product as well as the ease of use and rapid deployment. It's easy to learn. It's easy to get return on investment when using UiPath. We tend to see that clients tend to deploy a blend of both attended and unattended bots. This tends to balance out because the unattended bots are the ones that augment existing processes and cherry pick out parts that a human still sits doing, whereas unattended bots are probably the more valuable in terms of removing the human element altogether.

I found the UiPath academy very valuable and it has helped us to understand the product we are working with. I attended the course and I am about to complete more courses so that I can benefit from this brilliant opportunity. It is free for everyone who is interested. UiPath Community Forum and UI Connect are free and can be accessed by anyone as well. There, I could find all of the information that I needed. The most interesting part was accessing UiPath Studio, where you can try to improve your technical skills and try building a robot. View full review »

Orchestrator is essential, but I love how Studio includes so many activities that are pre-programmed to do what is needed. Who doesn't love the recording feature? A recording is great to use when doing the first build of new automations! The most important feature of all is the UiPath community and the forums, as they have helped me with countless questions!

I recommend UiPath to others. It doesn't limit your skills in a programming language. Instead, it has a more extensive feature on it. Hence we can utilize those to inject our code, and it is versatile to any programming language even though the technology that UiPath uses is built under .NET. View full review »

We're just starting to use UiPath now but the automation process which reduces human intervention is the one we like most. It's also very easy to use. I'm not directly involved in the program side.

UiPath Orchestrator is a tool which allows to us to orchestrate all the commands, like a manager and their employees. We can do a lot of processes, not just in one department. It has flexibility, where you can do a process then to move to another process when there is nothing to do. With one robot, you can program it to do many processes. The programming seems easy.

The most valuable feature is the ability to stop the process after it has been started by an individual user. This allows for some dynamic events, but still gain the automation. The underlying architecture (i.e. Elastic stack) is decent, but there probably needs to be better ties there to maintain at least an n-1 version on the Elastic stack. View full review »

I am an automation expert responsible for creating utilities which help support systems in easing down their business and saving lots of money with redundant efforts. Earlier, it was done using software code, but once I latched on to UiPath, I was overwhelmed with the ease, flexibility, integration, and support provided by it. Along with that, UiPath provides the best learning material and easiest learning curve making it one of the popular tools in the market. I also found the UiPath community forum very helpful which is a big plus for developers like us. The latest version of UiPath (Community Edition, v2019.2.0) contains a beta version of AI computer vision which we have just used, and I am sure that it's going to kill in the market with such an ease of recognizing UI elements. Additionally, now we can also retrieve the header of HTTP requests which was a must use case for our project, and it eased out a lot of re-work. View full review »

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. It shows that UiPath has been taking feedback from the community and acting on it to improve the platform. View full review »

I love the ease and smoothness of the tool. The company has its own academy in which you can learn from fundamentals to advanced level.

The tool can be accessed easily either when you want to schedule a task on VM or on your own computer.

For our specific case, as we work with virtual and remote desktops, we find quite useful the new features that UiPath brings to work with such environments. The most recent is the computer vision package that uses a powerful OCR engine to recognize more accurately the elements in the remote screen and get the values we need or consider appropriated. Also, in general, this software is so easy to use and learn. How to use it takes no more than a full four weeks during the official training. The interface is so friendly, and the workspace is customizable. View full review »

The training platform of UiPath is very good. It helps the business user without prior experience in programming to automize the process by themselves. This is a good approach because they are the ones with a great overview of the process and know how to control the quality of the results as well as foresee what the potential issues could be. Also, it can work on everything. UiPath is like a VBA for Excel but can work on all applications (MS Office, SAP, web browser, etc.). So the potential for automation is nearly limitless.

At this point, others can download that task as an activity and can use it with their Bots. Apart from the library, I like the API activities and the activities which we can call Python scripts from.

If you are looking to automate VDIs, then UiPath delivers you a powerful tool to do so. Even better is that they are constantly making progress in that field and have some features coming up in the future that no other solution can deliver. Also, UiPath gives you free access to their online learning academy which is really great if you are new to RPA and want to have a quick start in that field. View full review »

* The flexibility and easy-to-use platform of UiPath make it on a par with other RPA vendors. * The studio for development is quite intuitive and user-friendly. * Also, what I like most about UiPath is that it has 400+ inbuilt activities, and on top of that, it has introduced customization activities making it more valuable.

Robotic Process Automation is the most valuable feature from my perspective as it allows me to multitask and that too in a cyclic manner with better results. The AI is also far more advanced than other similar tools, and it is free, which makes it a better product. View full review »

One great feature is relatively simple, and that is the ability to pause a recording and resume it. When debugging UiPath's ability to slow down its execution speed, visually identify UI elements it's interacting with while simultaneously showing the activity line it is working on is priceless. Coming from a lean process improvement background, I can appreciate this being implemented in a software application. View full review »

UiPath is not an open-source project, but it supports private enhancements and plugins. These allow the community to grow and encouraged people to contribute, with best practices. In my experience, the technologies that are supported by an active community, are those ones destined to succeed. This is clearly a great feature that the UiPath Studio platform has. Also, providing free training courses eases interested developers into adopting the technology. Having an online Orchestrator instance for training purposes is great also. View full review »

However, the UiPath support team is always available and quick to help you find a solution to the problem. I think it's a good product and it will get better and better. View full review »
