DigitalHybrid Company TOPPAN FORMS CO., LTD. (TOPPAN FORMS, hereunder) and TOPPAN FORMS OPERATION CO., LTD. (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Kenichi Fukushima; TFO, hereunder), a TOPPAN FORMS Group company undertaking businesses centered on system operation and management services, announce their entry into the robotic process automation (RPA) business focused on the supply of RPA tools, by which software robots automatically perform routine PC tasks in place of humans, from fiscal 2018.
TFO is offering services at job sites where customers use its system operation and management services, which comprise its key operations. The addition of RPA to its services through participation in the RPA business enables TFO to expand service coverage to introduction support for systems divisions. The RPA business can aid productivity enhancement by systems division employees, in addition to employees of administrative divisions that lead RPA introduction, toward the goal of reforming work styles at respective companies.

To start, TFO assumes the roles of training systems engineers (SEs) and building business foundations for advancing the RPA business with the TOPPAN FORMS Group, making the most of its customer base and knowhow gained through system operation and management services.

Background for entry into the RPA business

Enhancing employee productivity has become an urgent issue for companies as a result of the central government policy of promoting work style reforms and the shortage of IT-proficient manpower. RPA, by which software robots perform routine PC tasks in place of humans, has entered the limelight. The introduction of RPA is now advancing at many companies, including in the financial industry, as RPA enhances productivity in a big way over the short period following its introduction. RPA is a market in which the scope of application is expected to expand, as suggested by advancement studies linking it with artificial intelligence (AI).
The TOPPAN FORMS Group has contributed to improving the efficiency of office work at customers through the provision of solutions in a variety of fields since its business inauguration. From this point on, the TOPPAN FORMS Group will actively strengthen total RPA solutions and simultaneously work on developing new markets.
