TOPPAN FORMS OPERATION CO., LTD.

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, announces the start of an RPA* training service that supports technological acquisition for the persons in charge of RPA development and operation, from January 2019.
The training service mainly involves an engineer training seminar featuring authorized content that is provided by our engineers certified by each RPA vendor, and also provides hands on training for learning how to operate the tool and the scenario development skills. They are mainly implemented at RPA Lab, a new base that opened near Shimbashi Station in Tokyo. However, on-site training is also planned to be available at a place specified by a customer.
* RPA (Robotic Process Automation): A technology that automates and streamlines office work using a software robot that is also called a digital labor.

These days, while RPA is being more actively used in companies, many companies are suffering from a shortage in human resources who are involved in tool development and operation as well as issues related to their education and development.
TOPPAN FORMS and TFO will contribute to solving the shortage in human resources for RPA* development and operation in each company through education using the training service. In addition, by selling three RPA tools and providing total support services and training services related to the introduction and operation of the tools, each of which has different functions, they will promote the utilization of RPA that contribute to the promotion of the productivity improvement and work-style reforms of companies.
