UiPath vs Other RPA Vendor

I want to know difference between UiPath & RPA Leading vendors (Automation Anywhere & Blue Prism)… It will be good if its in table format.

I would also like to know Difference Between UiPath & Selenium.

Appreciate if someone help me to get these details.

Thanks in Advance.


Hi @kuldip.gohil,

I think we may start with the following table:

I’ve also attached the sheet with those informations.
RPA Leaders.zip (6.8 KB)


Thanks @acaciomelo For table with Feature list, We should have this comparison list, I don’t have BluePrim and Automation Anywhere installed so it will take time for me to do research but thanks for the details so far.

I’ve also found - https://www.quora.com/What-are-key-differences-between-the-leading-two-RPA-providers-Automation-Anywhere-and-Blue-Prism

It would be good if we’ve pros & cons as well for each platform.

If someone can tell me 3-5 bullet points why UiPath instead of Other Leaders that would be good.



Some very high level criteria are these:

** means high importance but those may vary depending on the customer

It is not for me to say where we score better (I’m biased) but if I would to choose five

  • Implementation Speed - how fast can you automate
  • Reusability/Extensibility - build modular automation and reuse at the workflow level plus extend UiPath functionality via custom activities or various integration
  • Citrix and Desktop automation - this is our DNA; how far can you go with automation.
  • Architecture and Future Proof - can the tool evolve in the future?

That’s most for the Desktop part/community but the Control Server is very important.


Thank you @badita

This isn’t an exact answer to your question, but still a good post regarding this topic
EDIT: Link below.

As per Forrester Wave 2017 Q1[1] report best RPA vendors are

  • Automation Anywhere
  • UiPath
  • NICE
  • BluePrism
  • EdgeVerve
  • Workfusion
  • Pega / OpenSpan

UiPath scores best in the technology category, AA has the biggest market presence and breadth of use-cases while BP scores best when it comes to bot governance and deployment features though, I think, they are a bit underrated.

Secondly it depends on the use case and who you are. For example WF is great when it comes to digitization(OCR) processes while UiPath offers a free community edition.

Similar answers were given by Everest or Gartner.





As I have been working on Blue Prism and UI Path but not Openspan, I can only tell you thee following.

Personally if feel UI Path is extremely user friendly.

  1. Speed of implementation would be very high but anyone who has worked on it can sense the delay problem that has to be improved upon.

  2. Can be used for various integration services with different workflow modules hence scoring high on re usability.

  3. Citrix environment automation and desktop contribute to major pros of this tool. The architecture of the tool ensures future proof, meaning it can evolve in unbelievable measures.

  4. It has a free community edition allowing everyone to download and learn with umpteen number of learning PDF’s and videos available online

  5. Only con is lack of control. No coding. Neither C# nor VB script can be run.

Coming to Blue prism, one word, Control

  1. Enterprise grade RPA solution tool with extreme control over activities and point blank approach towards object creation, coding and automation implementation. Its difficult to go wrong when coding can be done.

  2. Speed of implementation can be controlled (which is very high) by anchoring browser based automation and through, I say it again, coding. Check for element and other features, like waiting until object exists in a page of a browser with three modes namely, accessibility, HTML and region mode giving more options and control over selection and accuracy.

  3. The code insertion part gives Blue Prism an edge over other RPA tools but, other tools like Automation Anywhere and UI Path have been very successful in making it user friendly.

  4. Whereas other automation tools are designed very well for some processes and are lacking in a few others, Blue Prism had the capacity to automate almost anything without any exception. Targeting only a few processes would decrease the scope of a tool, and Blue Prism stands apart in that category.

I hope this helps you.

Thanks for reading.



Thanks Sarah_Johan for sharing.

I am actually started the thread below to find out more about breadth of use case for the leading RPA tool.

So I think we can say that BP has higher breadth of use case due to this control feature (code injection).

Anyone use Automation Anywhere before? Does AA allow code injection as well? AA scored the highest in breadth of use case category.

Have you aware or tried Invoke Code Activity in UiPath?

you can do this with UiPath as well.


Due to heavy work in the office there is no time, But i will try to do in this weekend.

Hi; Can you please share the file?

Kind regards

This is awesome information and thanks for sharing. As we all know each product implementation is different and each customer requirement is different. It all depends who each customer and the product owner are working in understanding the requirement and customizing it and implementing it.

@aksh1yadav, @Sarah_Johan, I can’t resist :sunglasses:


Uses my mildly customized lib CLR.ahk, renamed to CLR_AHK, see here, which has lots of functions available. My included CLR_H.ahk may well not account for other declarations of built-in variables, which AutoHotKey.dll doesn’t allow. (Here I just replaced “null” with “nulo” in the script, renamed it, and Robert’s your mother’s brother.)

This’ll compile both C# and VB.Net on the fly, see the link for examples.

“I_can_C_sharp.xaml”, “CLR_H.ahk”, and “UiPath_CLR” are included in the archive.

Hi @acaciomelo That’s exactly what I’m looking for! Do you have an updated version of this table?

can anyone tell me what exactly UI path and differenciate RPA ?? have read the comment above but couldn’t get coz i am new to rpa.

Check out this.

PS:- 6th point about UiPath is crap…Plz ignore :slight_smile: )

Thanks @badita

This is got me full of confidence to recommend to my clients to use UiPath definitely.

Can’t you send me your file?
I’m comparing between UiPath and WorkFusion.
Pls help me.
