Repetitive Tasks Using
Businesses today are struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing demands of customers and competition. Manual processes take too much time, cost too much money, and can lead to costly errors. With limited resources, it’s hard for companies to stay ahead of their competitors while also providing quality customer service.
Typical challenges faced by businesses:
Businesses need a way to automate mundane tasks so they can focus on more important projects that will help them grow their business. That’s where Robotic Process Automation (RPA) comes in.
RPA is revolutionising the way businesses today optimise their operations. By automating mundane and repetitive tasks, RPA helps businesses increase productivity, save money, and reduce errors. Ricoh’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions provide businesses with an efficient, cost-effective way to automate tedious tasks such as document processing, data entry, customer service inquiries, financial transactions, and more. By deploying RPA technology, businesses can focus their resources on more important tasks.
A Non-Invasive Technology: RPA
Robotic Process Automation does not require a change to existing systems. There is no need to rewrite legacy software or integrate RPA with business-critical systems. That’s why it is considered a non-invasive technology.
Consider RPA as an extra layer on top of a customer’s existing technology stack. RPA tools come with pre-built activities and designers you can use to build a robot and configure its behaviour, for example, mouse move and click. No complex coding is required. There is no need to re-engineer existing business processes since the robot interacts with existing applications just like a user would.

RED and How It Works
RED works as an electronic ‘digital worker,’ using intuitive drag-and-drop design tools, which makes it easier for you to visualise and automate your processes. You can trigger the automation process by various events, such as the receipt of data, new file creation, an email, or a particular event in another application.
These, in turn, trigger RED to follow a series of steps and rules to capture the data and perform high-volume, repeatable tasks that would previously require human intervention. You can schedule it to run and update overnight, or as and when the information is received, thus replacing time-consuming, manual re-keying in of data and reducing data input errors.
How RED Is Implemented
RED is designed to be implemented as a non-invasive technology on-premises or in the cloud. It does not
require a change to your existing systems. RED was created with a focus on agility and ease of use that allows you to quickly deploy the solution within your environment.
By utilising the low-code platform, you can build and configure a solution to automate manual and repetitive tasks in hours, not days, and integrating into your current systems and processes.
