MESSAGE

MESSAGE
I would like to express my great gratitude for the extraordinary support people routinely provide.

Since its establishment in 2000, RPA Holdings has moved forward as a group that constantly creates businesses from scratch. Proposed by a US and Europe-based consulting company about two years ago, in 2016, the word RPA embodies the idea of efforts to raise the efficiency of white-collar operations, primarily by making use of cognitive technologies (rule engines, machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc.). It has also been referred to as digital labor (virtual white-collar workers) because it serves as a complement to humans when undertaking operations.

Since 2008, before the concept of RPA was proposed, RPA Holdings has been working on BizRobo!, a robot-sourcing service for offices. The idea for this came from factory automation. In 2017, it also drew a lot of attention in Japan as a way to solve the country's structural problem of a dramatic decline in the working-age population, leading to what could be called an RPA boom. There are extremely high expectations for the company.

I am confident that as a leading company in the RPA field, RPA Holdings will move the business forward so that it can contribute to society by not only promoting the spread of but also creating new businesses through the use of digital labor in order to bring about a new era of collaboration between humans and digital labor.

I would like to once again express my deep appreciation for all the support we have received from client companies, partner companies, and shareholders since the founding of the company in 2000. With a vision of creating new business by melding intelligence and technology, we will continue to expand our business in order to generate value for society through new businesses. In addition, we will strive to win the trust of all stakeholders and generate a sustainable increase in corporate value.

I hope for the continued support of all shareholders.

Tomomichi Takahashi
Representative Director, RPA Holdings
