Criteria spotlight: Discovery, bot ideation, portfolio, Document Understanding, and ROI
As said already, UiPath has created a process discovery tool and we love it. The Automation Hub is a great crowdsourcing mechanism to step business users through the necessary requirements to fully flesh out their automation idea. You grade the complexity of your idea, supply any documents, and even record the steps if so inclined. We use it internally ourselves for Smartbridge’s own bot discovery.
Along with UiPath’s Document Understanding component, PDFs, emails, webpages, and images can be read, classified, extracted into a readable format, and then uploaded to their AI Center to be validated. Document Understanding utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) and AI to obtain text from documents, analyze the text, and then provide the desired output.
