Let’s quickly review what RPA is before we get into the details. Robotic Process Automation (also known as RPA) is a software technology that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine learning technology to create robots (bots). These robots can perform simple tasks without human intervention. It is a technology that reduces time and produces no errors for mundane, repetitive tasks. It performs the assigned work autonomously, which was previously impossible because humans had to do it manually.
Let’s now get to the point about RPA. This blog will answer some of your questions about RPA implementation, including the steps involved.

What is the Process of RPA?
Automation technology has been an integral part of the business’s evolution over the past decade. RPA technology has been able to achieve extraordinary complexity while still being easy to use. This is especially important during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is not a tool that is used to automate repetitive and basic IT tasks. RPA is a tool that develops and assembles other innovations, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML); there are many new possibilities. Let’s see how RPA works.
Planning Phase
This is the first stage of the RPA process/implementation, where the organization needs to schedule and list all activities that are expected to be automated by RPA. These tasks should be routine, rule-based, and other tasks that are necessary to prepare for RPA. Finalize the implementation of RPA within a time frame.
Phase of Development
This is the second stage of the automation workflow design, which was initially agreed upon in the planning stages. This phase will be executed quickly and with a lower level of pressure than the planning stage.
Phase of Testing
This is the most important phase. This is where we test the automation we developed in the first and second phases. A test run will help identify and correct any errors or changes that may have occurred during the development phase.
Support and Maintenance Stage
This last stage ensures that the software is always up-to-date and is able to be used by its customers/services. This will be monitored by the IT team and RPA professionals at regular intervals. This helps to resolve defects immediately.
