What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are Activities, Orchestrator, and UiPath Go! The UiPath Orchestrator is one source to easily manage all bots.

How has it helped my organization?

We have used this product to implement automation for several things, including: * UI automation that updates a project's status based on conditions * Gathering data from web sites * Excel functions related to HR operations * File checks… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see all a full-featured version for mobile devices. In some Activities, there are inconsistencies between versions where the most recent does not have support for throwing the same kinds of errors.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This solution is priced less compared with other products.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

So far, our first customer started with just Orchestrator and an unattended bot, along with a couple of studio licenses. I don't know the cost. Maybe $25,000 for the year… more»

I can only speak for my client, who is undergoing a huge digital transformation. They're a small German company and they just know if they don't change something other… more»

What needs improvement?

We use UiPath only in virtual environments. If it came out of the box like a software as a service, it would be a whole lot better, especially in our case. All our… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing costs are high, but still well within a positive return on investment. We like the hybrid model, but it would be very costly for us to have one Attended Robot… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of UiPath is we have direct access to read and write data in our applications, so we don't need to build a back-end interface.

What needs improvement?

The security needs improvement, especially in regards to managing the credentials. I would also like to see better integration with Microsoft products. We still have to test the final product. UiPath's recommendation is build another bot to… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We rely on our partner to identify a solution and give us a recommendation.

What other advice do I have?

Use UiPath in a more process-driven way, instead of BI-driven way. We put everything on Amazon Cloud, even our development is cloud-based. We haven't had a change to use UiPath Academy for RPA training yet.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are a couple options on market, like Automation Anywhere. UiPath is one of the leaders, so we picked UiPath. Automation Anywhere is not on the DHS approved vendor list, so we couldn't pick them, as the approval process would take… more»

The Academy Live that I took was only a half a day course. There needs to be diverse set of courses for those introduced to RPA for the first time. There are different people who show up to this… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Getting licenses has been relatively easy. We have all the prices for the software. Every project is up for a negotiation on how it's going to be done. A lot of times, with the federal government, it… more»

What other advice do I have?

Be prepared, because you are going to be asked a hundred question. This product takes a team. Your senior management needs to want this product and sign onto training. You will need developers capable… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is one of the big issues when I have been doing some pre-sale activities. One robot price licensing is quite high with UiPath. They should provide some discounts to partners so we can spread… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of UiPath are its activities. There are a number of activities available in the UiPath Studio, which are enough to automate all types of tasks. Since UiPath is new in the market, it is constantly being updated every day, and new features are being added accordingly to the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

UiPath helps us in the execution of processes that need to be done repetitively, like data entry or content migration. It is fast, affordable, efficient, and easy to use. Healthcare is also an important project that we have running. It saves time for patient eligibility.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the computer vision activity updated. There should be a click-event-update activity present in the UI Studio where we can click a link and the result should act as a button. Right now, this feature is not available in such conditions. The OCR should be made faster to save more… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using UiPath, we used both Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism. We have found UiPath to be more reliable, easier to use, more stable, and 100% accurate while performing actions on any element or running automation anytime.

What is most valuable?

What I like the most about this solution is that it is easy to develop and easy to train everyone how to use it. So, that means you can train more people in a short period of time and the time of training is reduced. That's the main characteristic of this tool that may have put it ahead of other… more»

What needs improvement?

If I were to talk about the improvements, I think that reducing the cost would be the first thing on my list. The dashboards for statistics would be great if they were more complete and more easy to integrate. If I could also see all the statistics on a mobile phone with a special mobile application… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice for others who are looking into this product is that they have to pay attention to integrate the solution completely, taking into account all your needs and the users in your company. I mean this in the sense that you need to integrate all your applications and to know the profile of all… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This product is similar to Automation Anywhere and BluePrism. They are all similar and they are the leaders in the market for RPA at this moment. The ease of use of the UiPath product was attractive.
