  • A Perspective on Robot as a Service with UiPath Platform

    In the pursuit of defining RaaS, let’s think about organizations, in the verve of implementing automation. To shape processes, you need to purchase licenses and set up favorable automation environments and investigate in depth hardware requirements. Now let’s imagine a model designed for organizations, regardless their size which provides them with robotic process automation (RPA), and a complete package of services including licenses, automation, maintenance, automation governance, scalability, all gathered in an interactive platform.

    Why is Robot as a Service needed?

    The answer is remarkably simple. In this era, in which companies strive to become fully automated enterprises, RaaS comes in as a stepping stone. It is cost-effective, and very suitable for small, medium or large organizations. UiPath provides a comprehensive service package together with an extensive product offer.
    Use Case for RaaS model using UiPath

    Let’s see a practical approach to the RaaS model using UiPath products. Dive in a use case for small-scale business involved in selling home appliances. The owner of the business has applied for a solution where he can manage his inventory. Let's look at user access management. Employees who will be accessing the solution should be added to Accounts and Groups. To do that, on Automation Cloud™, go to Admins page and move to Accounts and Groups. Now under the Users tab, invite all the users who would be accessing the solution. Alternatively, you can also add them as part of a group.

    We named the solution "Invento", an inventory management app which helps the user interact with automation by keeping track of products in the inventory and raising orders when the quantity is below the threshold. The app also triggers reports to the admins based on inventory consumption.

    We'll explore the solution in three major steps: the interactive app or how our solution is presented, its back end made of Data Service and its entities or how our inventory data is stored and the UiPath workflows. Below you can see an overview of the complete process captured in a diagram. Here you can also see how UiPath products interact with each other.

    Step 1

    To build an interactive application using UiPath, the first step is to build a Sign Up page for the user. The idea behind this page is to register all employees before they start using Invento.
    1. An employee won't need to register each time, just sign in. On the Sign Up page, there will also be a link to the sign in page. An error message will also be shown if the employee registration information isn't complete.

    2. Let’s check the forgotten password page and sign out page. The new password will be sent in an email.
    3. The home page of Invento gives the employee a range of selections where they can select how they want to use the application. They can choose to view the current inventory, check active orders, place or cancel an order. There's also a page where the user can view all kinds of orders (active, cancelled, or successful orders).

    4. Active Orders Page contains information on the orders that have been placed recently or are yet to be delivered. Information such as order number and the date the order was placed is displayed on this page. There is also a link to go back to the home page or sign out.
    5. Current Inventor page is the heart of Invento as it contains all the items serial number, code present in the inventory. It holds the name and the quantity. If the quantity is below the threshold, an email will be triggered. Also, this information (current inventory) will be captured and emailed to the admins before closing the day for visibility. If the employees see that there is a need to replenish a certain item in the inventory, they can place an order using the Create Order button on the page.
