Shift gears to an automated RPA code review for faster development of bots

Most service providers in the connectedness industry have started leveraging Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to streamline their business processes. Standardizing the bot development process and scaling the bot velocity are the most important goals of any RPA Center of Excellence (CoE). One of the major roadblocks faced in this mission is the manual review of the RPA code, which is a highly tedious task. It is not only cumbersome but also time-consuming and prone to errors. Although the RPA code review process is of utmost importance to reduce post-deployment defects and costs, the manual approach is crippled with challenges and is highly inefficient.

To overcome these challenges, service providers should automate the code review process. To achieve this, service providers can leverage a platform-agnostic RPA code reviewer bot that can review

  • Hundreds of variables, arguments, activities and message boxes
  • The logic for exception handling, custom logging, queues and credential management
