Bay Area startup Ripcord just scored a $40 million Series B, following its successful launch earlier this year. By all accounts, the company has apparently hit the ground running with its decidedly unsexy goal of using robots to digitize paper records for large corporations and organizations.

According to CEO Alex Fielding, Ripcord already has a number of Fortune 100 companies on board, along with recent deals struck with UCLA and construction giant, Bechtel. The startup is working to distinguish itself with an end-to-end solution that includes, among other things, the aforementioned paper digitizing robots and Canopy, its consumer-facing cloud-based software, designed to actually access those records once digitized.
