Our New RPA Product Line – Spotlight – has Arrived!


We’re pleased to announce the release of our new product line, v2016.1 – affectionately named Spotlight by our development team. Last spring our CEO, Daniel Dines, challenged the team to make 2016 the year when RPA becomes a new world of automation. Spotlight meets the challenge with advanced technology and innovative product features that deliver a new level of automation capabilities to our customers. 


We’ve always maintained two tracks of RPA technology investment: our research & innovation teams forge ahead in the fields of cognition, digitalization & computer vision; our development teams turn those advances into enterprise-ready RPA products; for example, our unmatched Citrix automation.

With Spotlight, our customers will be able to rapidly scale and tackle large volumes of work with new autonomous robotic features and a robust orchestration platform.

Collaborative Inno**vation = Spotlight**

All our product innovations are heavily influenced by feedback and discussions with strategic partners and customers during early beta testing – and Spotlight is no exception. Determined to provide very intuitive and effective product features for higher automation volumes, by the early summer of 2015 the development team was actively collaborating  in the following areas: 

Robotic Precision (RPA & Citrix): high work volumes are dependent upon the efficiency of autonomous automation, which in turn requires extremely precise automation solutions in order to minimize exceptions.

This is particularly true for RPA & Citrix: many of our customers have to automate across dozens of Citrix-enabled ERP systems – without going behind the firewall. In Spotlight, automation precision has moved very close to our goal of 100% accuracy.

Front Office & Back Office Robotic Specialization**:** discussions with strategic partners and customers made it clear how important it is to have highly specialized robots to handle the different business process characteristics of front office and back office operations. Using their feedback, the speed of our Front and Back Office robots is faster and memory management is improved. Front Office robots are easier and more intuitive for employees to use and manage.

Work Orchestration: high volume process automation can only be achieved if large numbers of work files are accurately assembled and addressed by properly queued pools of autonomous robots. UiPath Orchestrator is a completely re-architected server with precisely those capabilities – and many more. Designed for use with both types of robots, It has an intuitive management console; highly configurable log files for compliance and sophisticated release management and process monitoring capabilities.

Product Line Overview

The Spotlight product line is comprised of:

UiPath Studio: the extensible and industry standard process designer where business users can develop and map end-to-end processes without code, on a highly visual drag and drop diagram model. UiPath automates – without discrimination – any application and integrates with any platform.

UiPath Front Office Robot: software robots programmed to execute processes modeled with UiPath Studio. Based on the use cases the robots can be:

UiPath Back Office Robot: provides a robotic workforce of autonomous software robots programmed to run unattended and automate any number of back office activities, around the clock, with exceptional speed and precision. The back office robot can be remotely controlled from a web console and it is usually deployed in a virtual machine.

UiPath Orchestrator: is a scalable *<strong>*robotic process automation**</strong> <strong>server</strong> fully integrated and equipped with centralized instrumentality for enterprise class management, security, compatibility, support and auditability.
