The founders began creating automation libraries in 2005, subsequently in 2013 forming the company as Deskover and launching the first UiPath Desktop Automation product based on Microsoft Workflow Designer. One of the initial uses of this product was with Sutherland Global Services.  

In 2015, Deskover, with ten employees, became UiPath. The company formed partnerships with BPS firms including Cognizant, Capgemini, and NIIT, and with specialist professional services companies including Symphony, Genfour, and Virtual Operations. 

In April 2016, UiPath launched its Front Office and Back Office Server Suites based on its Server 2.0 architecture, and by the end of 2017 had grown to ~500 employees. 

BFSI is UiPath's top industry vertical, but it also has a presence in (in order) manufacturing, retail, healthcare, energy and utilities, transportation, telecoms, and public-sector industries.  

UiPath's primary offerings include UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform, its primary robotic automation software platform; UiPath Academy, a free and open online training platform for RPA professionals; and UiPath Community, a 'free to start' version of UiPath RPA for smallorganizations, individuals, and universities.
