What is the bottom line?
Microsoft Power Automate is intuitive and easy to integrate and use. I like that there is no coding experience necessary, and appreciate the automated workflow and drag-and-drop functionality. I found the solution to be very stable and reliable, which is not necessarily the case with UiPath. I like that Power Automate has a 90-day trial period. I think that’s more realistic than 30 days in terms of deciding whether the solution is right for me. The pricing of both solutions is reasonable, but it’s a benefit that Power Automate comes included with Office 365 and therefore there is no additional licensing fee. There seems to be a bit of a feature gap between Power Automate and other RPA solutions, which might be more mature. UiPath helps to prevent human error and offers excellent data quality. I like the ability it has to “set and forget.” I also really appreciate the UiPath community and the ability to interact with and ask questions of other users.
Conclusions Which option you ultimately choose may have a lot to do with what ecosystem you would like it to integrate with. Power Automate integrates better with Microsoft while UiPath integrates better with other solutions
I could see some points being covered in the previous reply.
In my opinion, I would go with a solution that meets my needs. If it is plain and simple RPA and you have office 365 it is okay to try with Power Automate and decide.
If there is complex processing involved, I would prefer trying both solutions to make the decision.
UiPath is obviously much more mature. In my opinion, Power Automate may have a simple drag and drop for Microsoft products but getting that work with other than Microsoft products may need more skills compared to UiPath.
I may be wrong as I'm not a practitioner of either one of the platforms.
It depends on your infrastructure and on the kind of projects you are looking to Automate.If most of the process within your organisation heavily rely on the microsoft eco sysytems and are not too complex in terms of steps, then the easiest and the best solution to use for automation would be Microsoft Power Automate. The key thing here is that at least 50% of the steps need to be using MS excel, word,outlook or office 365 apps in some way to achieve the end results.However, if your processes requires the use of multiple applications both native (desktop based) or online , then the best automation solution would be UiPath. This product excels at GUI based automations, Citrix based automations and also provides you with a lot of flexibility in incorporating other solutionsBottom line.. for small/medium complexity solutions which use microsoft eco-system , its MS power automate. Else UiPath would be a better choice in all other scenarios
I am researching ABBYY FlexiCapture and UiPath. Can anyone give insight into how these two solutions differ in terms of their features and capabilities?
What are the main reasons to adopt an RPA solution? Besides efficiency, my goal is to identify business and technology KPIs that will be positively influenced by adding an RPA solution.
I'm looking forward to getting your inputs.
