If you just copy a few fields from an application and paste them into another application, import sales data from an Excel spreadsheet and fill out an online form, it is already time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone. It is time to automate this process. The question is not if rule-based tasks should be automated, but what does it take to automate them?
An Excel macro is a good start, but how can you fill data into another application? Even a simple macro requires programming knowledge, and you do not want to involve your IT department in simple tasks. Many businesses and IT processes are affected by repetitive, rule-based tasks that involve manipulation of the software of various applications.
RPA can introduce a visual, declarative way of describing how to automate a process, and business users can use it in the same way they use a Visio diagram. When working with the presentation layer of other apps, you simply indicate on the screen what operation you need to perform. UiPath understands the UI at the logical control level and does not rely on the position of elements on the screen. This makes automation much more reliable and independent of screen size and resolution. UiPath scripts are very visual in nature one can simply take a look at them and tell at a glance what they are supposed to do. It is very easy to maintain them and accommodate small changes in the process.

Businesses and applications today are widely structured on web-based systems. Information that populates these systems is dense and demands extensive processing. Many of the tasks involved are repetitive, tedious and take up a lot of time
and money. This is where web automation comes in. Form filling, screen scraping, data extraction and transfer between applications, website testing and periodical report generation are major common tasks that can readily benefit from web automation.

GUI Automation is the essential support tool for screen scraping, automated testing, automated data entry, application integration, and content migration. It can act as the last resort when dealing with legacy apps that offer no other API, and it enables users to easily automate tedious and repetitive tasks. UiPath provides the most accurate and rich GUI automation software that can handle any application without the slightest disturbance.

Screen Scraping is an important part of data migration and integration scenarios. It enables modern apps to talk with legacy apps that do not offer an API and is the complement to the data entry side of automation. There are so many technologies available to create user interfaces on Windows desktop—from the old DOS console apps, the Win32 and FoxPro apps of the 1990s, to the Java and .Net Winforms apps of early 2000, to modern WPF apps today.
Then, there are the web apps of all the different browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, Flash and Silverlight web technologies, as well as enterprise apps, such as SAP, Siebel, and PeopleSoft, and the good old mainframe with the green screen and terminal emulators. All of these apps can be published via Citrix/VDI. UiPath is providing the first 100% accurate, extremely fast screen scraping tool.

It’s a fact that many applications today are published via Citrix XenApp. A Citrix server only sends screenshots of the live application that runs on the Citrix server back to the client, so UiPath cannot access the logical elements that make up the user interface. UiPath went to great lengths to make Citrix automation possible: featuring a powerful image recognition engine that is optimized to find images on the screen in under 100 milliseconds.
Besides image recognition, the text is sent back to the client via shared clipboard or by using on-screen OCR (optical character recognition). More importantly, despite the inherent difficulties of automating Citrix, you can still use the integrated recorder to achieve great productivity. In fact, it takes the same amount of time to build an integration that involves Citrix, as it takes to automate a regular desktop application.

How could something like the venerable software Excel—perhaps the all-time champion in storing, organizing, and manipulating data—become even more efficient and productive than it already is? Excel is easy to use, accessible, and highly popular. Nonetheless, it is not always user-friendly and can at times prove to be very time-consuming and hard to integrate with other applications. For example, the established way to automate tasks in Excel requires training for you to become proficient in Visual Basic for Excel Macros. Today’s working environment is multi-application focused, with data constantly being transferred between applications. Migrating and integrating data into platforms can, therefore, become troublesome, even when you work with applications that can import and export files. This happens because information can get mixed up or lost in the process, forcing you to waste precious time by repeating the steps each time you sync the data.
