What is our primary use case?

Pros and Cons

  • "Attended Bots have been star cases as it totally removes dependencies of user literacy to know the application."
  • "UiPath should focus more on recommendations of process automation based on ERP Applications like Oracle, SAP etc. They should also provide a list of possible RPA cases as per departments, processes and based on various industry domains."

Reduced our time to process information, allowing us to offer our services on a larger scale

What is our primary use case?

We use it to automate searches in public databases. We have lawyers who need to search for various companies. For example, we are searching insolvency files for a list of business partners, so we use the robot to perform the search and notify clients about its results. Thus, it helps us with our work in searching public registries. We have the Studio license and attended robots.

Pros and Cons

  • "It enables us to provide new services, e.g., our use case is something that we could not have delivered manually. Now that we use the robot, it is something that we can offer to clients. Therefore, it has helped us expand our scope of services and offer to clients more competitive fees."
  • "The pricing for Orchestrator and unattended robots could use improvement. If we plan to roll out and implement more robots, then perhaps lower costs on Orchestrator and unattended robots would make adoption even easier."

What other advice do I have?

I think the platform is very good. Have a good consultant advise you on the processes of automations: How to build the use case and business case. You will need a bit of knowledge around RPA and business processes to be able to have a successful implementation. Have a stronger technical partner tool to help with developing the robot, making adjustments, testing, etc. Testing is very important. It is important that you allocate resources for testing. Robots can do things in a different manner than we can and more efficiently. We have to be creative and think of processes, even if only part of…

Web scraping is easy to use, intuitive, and usually pretty consistent

What is our primary use case?

We're mainly focused on finance for the time being so we've used UiPath for invoice processing and e-billing reconciliation. It makes sure that all of our converting information matches within our client databases. We've done a couple of solutions that track budget spend for certain clients, making sure that if the budget overruns or comes close to overrunning, then someone gets notified. If we get a new client or if a new legal case is opened, automation can make sure that all that information is then uploaded into our database. We've done a couple of smaller automations for the legal teams… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to use APIs within UiPath is really helpful. The web scraping is really great. It's so easy to use, it's very intuitive, and it's usually pretty consistent. When web pages change you need to update it, but it makes it quick. If you need to do another quick process, it's really easy to get it quickly and set something up. I can just scrape data from a website and save it somewhere."
  • "The documentation can be a little bit lacking. I think they improved it a little bit last month. Last time I checked, it seemed like they spent a bit of time trying to improve it. Sometimes some of the processes are nicely documented. UiPath offers training, which they provide on their website. They teach you how to use it, but for some processes, it just seems like the documentation isn't really there. It makes it a little bit difficult when you're using a specific process from the first time."

What other advice do I have?

Definitely to try and get as many teams involved as possible to open up the conversation about RPA within the business. It works best when you've got lots of teams who have an understanding of RPA and how it works. They can come to you with their potential projects and you can filter through them and see which ones are going to be the most helpful. It's hard if no one else in the business really knows RPA or how it works, or if there's a bit of a wall there. It's important to introduce RPA to as many different teams as possible and to encourage people to get involved, think about the processes…

Analyst, Intelligent Automation at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

We are a large multi-national corporate financial services provider. Governance and Business Continuity is a key part of our design and implementations. We operate in 10+ geographies with various degrees of market maturity and capabilities in a "federated model" type.


I would like to understand the key "generic" but universal Governance and Business Continuity requirements that HelpSystems AutoMate, UiPath, Automation Anywhere (AA), Blue Prism, and Microsoft Power Automate would require if implemented in a decentralised manner. What would be the minimum requirement?
