Introduction and applications of RPA Tool UiPath

Before learning UiPath there were some more things that you need to know.

What is Automation?

Automation is replacing human workers with mechanical or electronic devices.

What is RPA?

RPA stands for Robotic Process Automation.

It is a software program that imitates human actions while interacting with a computer application and accomplishing automation of repetitive, rule-based processes.

What are the tools for RPA?

There are various tools available for RPA, these are some popular RPA tools:

  1. Blue Prism
  2. Automation Anywhere
  3. UiPath
  4. OpenSpan
  5. WorkFusion

Applications of RPA

Presently we are using computers for repetitive and boring jobs like data entry, loan processing and soon.

These industries are now opting for RPA to reduce those repetitive works and below are some of the applications of RPA in various industries:

Banking Industry :

  • Customer support
  • Loan processing
  • Fraud claims
  • Cards activation

Human Resource(HR) Industry :

  • Joining Formalities
  • Payroll Process
  • Short Listing of candidates

Healthcare :

  • Patient Registration
  • Billing
  • Report Generation

Insurance :

  • Processing claims
  • Clearance of claims
  • Responding to partner queries

Utility :

  • Customer service
  • Billing

Legal :

  • Converting documents digitally
  • Customer support

Government :

  • License renewal
  • Change of address

 Infrastructure :

  • Account setup
  • Customer support
  • Application processing

Manufacturing :

  • Generation of bills and sales calculation

What is UiPath?

UiPath is a Robotic Process Automation tool that is used to automate boring and repetitive tasks.

It is founded in the year 2005 by the Romanian entrepreneurs Daniel Dines and Marius Trica.

It also eliminates human intervention in automating boring tasks and it provides a drag and drops functionality for all activities, it is the simplest RPA tool.

Why UiPath?

UiPath is the most popular tool because the features it provides make it more attractive for RPA :

Features of UiPath :

Complete Solution :

UiPath offers a complete solution with the help of three components namely UiPath Studio, UiPath Orchestrator, and UiPath Robots.

Intuitive :

Working with UiPath and creating robots is very instinctive because it uses drag and drop and flowchart activities. It is very easy to learn.

Extensive Activity Library :

UiPath is having an extensive active library consisting of hundreds of pre-built, drag and drop actions.

Security :

UiPath also offers high security because we can store and encrypt the credentials on the centralized server.

Recording :

UiPath provides the facility of recording as well. It has special recorders for desktop apps, Citrix environments, and terminal emulators which makes creating automation much faster and precise.

Universal Search :

It is having a universal search feature that allows us to perform a single search for all automation resources like libraries, activities, projects, and workflows.

Powerful Debugging :

UiPath offers its users very powerful debugging which is very intuitive and flexible.

Collaboration :

UiPath promotes collaboration too, as we can store, protect and share scripts in MS Teams Foundation and SVN. We can also re-use the workflow.

Third-Party Integration :

We can plug in various cognitive and OCR technologies from ABBY, IBM Waston, Google, Microsoft text analysis at the API level.

Server-Based Licensing:

UiPath allows server-based licensing which makes the licensing process centralized and easy to use.

Products of UiPath :

UiPath platform is available with the following three product suites:

UiPath Studio :

We can visually design our automation processes. It allows us to use recorders, drag and drop widgets to model our robotic processes.

UiPath Robot :

The job of UiPath robots is to take over once you are done with the designing of processes in-studio and executing all the processes with perfect accuracy.

UiPath Orchestrator :

It is a browser-based server application that helps us to deploy, schedule, monitor, manage robots and processes.

It is a centralized platform and hence responsible for managing the robots.

Happy Learning!
