Ricoh was recently distinguished through integration into the Magic Quadrant of Gartner in the MWS – Managed Workplace Services category of Europe
The company is committed to a global growth strategy aimed at digitizing business processes, and its focus is on helping companies to be more agile, productive and profitable. “We anticipate organic and inorganic growth based on the strength of our printing business, and focused on fostering digital workplaces and new ways of working based on mobility and collaboration,” said Ramon Martin, CEO of Ricoh Spain and Portugal.
After the presentation of the new products, the conference “How to drive change in organizations”, led by Eng. António Costa, Senior Partner of Kaizen Western Institute, was also attended. “It is already a given that the future of workplaces is digitized, and not only are we moving towards this, but also that this transformation is already part of the business paradigm. Now, what needs to be done to achieve this reality, this yes is the challenge that few speak. Ricoh is working towards this, not only to reaffirm this new and changing reality but also to help all customers and partners integrate this new technology era, “says Eng. António Costa.
Ricoh focuses its business on developing value-added integrated solutions for the digital workplace. This company gamble was recently honored by integrating Ricoh into the Magic Quadrant of Gartner in the MWS – Managed Workplace Services category of Europe. “This recognition is the result of Ricoh’s commitment to changing our customers’ work culture in order to boost organizational and individual agility through digitalization and collaboration,” said Ramon Martin.
In this context, Ricoh plans to make investments, such as the recent acquisition of the Zeed Security cybersecurity platform under which the CEO of Ricoh Iberia states “to enhance the company’s knowledge and cybersecurity capabilities, one of the most common requirements among our customers, not only in the area of IT services but also in all our business lines, including printing, “explains Ramon Martin. This report, published by Gartner, highlights Ricoh’s broad offer in this field thanks to innovation as well as acquisitions such as Aventia in 2013, a user experience and e-commerce company, and Techno Trends in 2017, a unified communications and video conference.
In the field of office printing, the company also bets on the innovation of smart technology to scan companies, as is the case of the new range of multifunction equipment IM C2000-6000 launched in January 2019.
The new multifunction range offers a qualitative leap and incorporates customizable, secure, sustainable and easy-to-use technology. In this way, these devices are no longer just simple office tools to become digital document management platforms connected to the Cloud, which include multiple applications to support and improve the business processes of companies.
Ricoh also expects to grow in the commercial and industrial printing business with investments in innovation that enable the printing of new materials and the development of additive production or 3D printing.
