“UiPath Jumpstart” is a phrase we often hear from clients.
After reaching a decision to Automate using UiPath software, clients are often keen to get the project under way quickly and wish to Jumpstart the UiPath robot build activity.
As with the adoption of any new technology there is the challenge of “First Project Syndrome”. No matter how keen staff are to start building automations using UiPath software, there is a learning curve to understand the technology. UiPath provides an extensive online academy of training material, but as everybody has seen the difference between training course examples and real world project challenges can be significant.
Ether Solutions has recognised the UiPath Jumpstart interest and created its own UiPath Kickstart service as part of the 90 Day Automation method.
The client objectives of a rapid start to a UiPath development and implementation are achieved by an experience UiPath Consultant working alongside the client’s own developers. By providing access to the knowledge and experience, the UiPath Jumpstart vision is delivered resulting the effective construction of the UiPath robot processes without the risk a solution being created that immediately requires “Re-work”.
By the Ether Solutions consultant giving extra help to the client’s developers the initial build for the robot is completed quickly and the developers level of knowledge on the practical use of UiPath also has a Jumpstart.
After the first UiPath development, subsequent projects may not require a UiPath Jumpstart as the technology will be already deployed and some experience will already exist within the team.
Of course there can also be first implementations of UiPath where a Jumpstart is not necessary, for example if there has been a protracted product evaluation of UiPath undertaken and developers have in parallel acquired skills in UiPath by extensive “Proof of Concept” (POC) activity, or perhaps an experienced UiPath developer has been recruited and is able to start such that it coincides with initial UiPath project.
