I’ll go second :slight_smile:

This is one project that I worked on couple of weeks back.
Nature of the company: Construction
Domain: Finance
Project: Purchase order request and management

When there is a need to purchase items, the user places a purchase order request along with a quotation from the vendor. Once the request is approved, the purchase order is created.
The PO, is then sent to another department, where they extract the key information from the PO, and update their applications.

Process 1
Manual steps:

  1. Login to Sharepoint
  2. Extract the information needed to generate the PO
  3. Generate the PO

Automated steps:

  1. Login to Sharepoint
  2. Extract the PO request and the information from the quotes
  3. Generate the PO
  4. Send out emails alerting for approval

Process 2
Manual steps:

  1. Login to Sharepoint
  2. Download verified PO’s
  3. Login to ERP
  4. Create the PO and send for approval

Automated steps:

  1. Login to sharepoint
  2. Login to ERP
  3. Download the approved PO files
  4. Extract the key information
  5. Send verification alerts through UiPath Action Center on PO data extraction
  6. Generate the PO in the ERP

RPA tools: UiPath
Technology: AI Fabric (to extract PO data), Unattended robots, Action Center, Orchestrator


Another use case:

Salesforce is used to track sales opportunities. Under the opportunity segment, there are different stages. The client wanted to extract the opportunities that complete the need analysis stage, and update one of their new ERP applications. This system is used parallel to Salesforce to track and maintain their proposals for qualified opportunities.

Manual steps:

  1. Login to Salesforce
  2. Update the status of the opportunity as complete “Need Analysis”
  3. Extract information
  4. Login to ERP
  5. Insert the data

Automated steps:
We used the UiPath Salesforce connector. A simple automated trigger is configured in Salesforce so that it will trigger a process in UiPath Orchestrator as soon as the status of the opportunity is updated.

The triggered process included the below steps:

  1. Connect to Salesforce through Salesforce activities
  2. Extract the information of the opportunity
  3. Upload the data into a Queue

This is the Dispatcher process

Performer process
Triggered from the queue using Queue Trigger
steps:

  1. Login to ERP
  2. Get queue items
  3. Insert the records and update or ignore updating existing records based on business logic

RPA tool: UiPath
Technology: Salesforce connector, unattended robot, Orchestrator


Another use case:

Manual steps:

  1. Read through emails
  2. download the invoices
  3. Login to ERP
  4. Upate the system with data in the invoices

Automated steps: - Attended
Process 1

  1. Read emails and download attachments to a folder

  2. use Document Understanding with Invoices model
  3. Extract information

Hi @SK_2123,

Welcome to the UiPath community! :grinning:

Radomir and Lahiru have shared their projects, here’s my share:

Current Automation is being built for a client in the Oil and Gas domain where the manual process involved checking contracts, setting up services, and activation using in-house built systems.

The presented problem was split into multiple sub-processes and designed in such a fashion that would accommodate human intervention to provide additional data when needed. Certain process improvements were done along the way to standardize across multiple team members.

Automated steps involve - Files check, Interaction with 2 internal systems, Input data based on the logic on different screens, and finally notify the users.

Prior Automations that I had built and deployed were in Finance, Learning, and Oil & Gas domains. Processes were for Accounts Receivables, Accounts Payable, Bank Reconciliation, AP Jobs, Learning Management, etc.

Hope this helps, Happy Automation!

Regards,
PD

Hi Lahiru,

First of all Thank you so much for the information. I have few queries. I have few queries like what exact activities you have used so that it will give a whole idea and we as a beginner can relate to the flow.

  1. How did extract information needed to generate PO?- Did you use scraping or downloading the files from the sharepoint

  2. How did you generate PO? is it a separate application or its manual.

  3. For sending out emails - Did you use sharePoint mail activities or UIPath mail activities
    4.From which location you are downloading the PO files and did you use Document understanding for extracting Key information.

Apologies for bombarding with lot of questions but i found this use case very interesting and my IT career was in to .Net and SharePoint so just curious to know more about it

Please reply if you get time.

Thanks and Regards,
Shraddha
