On September 23, Gartner placed Ricoh among the "Leaders" in its Magic Quadrant for managed print services (MPS) worldwide.*
Gartner, Inc. is a company that reports and advises on information technology to CIOs and senior IT leaders. Its clients include large corporations, government agencies, and investors.
According to Gartner, "Leaders provide MPS to a wide range of customers, including the largest and most geographically dispersed, so they must demonstrate a truly global reach. They must demonstrate not only the skills to deliver today's MPS, but also the understanding, initiative and resources to prepare for tomorrow's MPS. Leaders characteristically augment the full scope of MPS with a wide range of added-value services. As a result, they are frequently shortlisted by large and midsize customers."
Ricoh's Managed Document Services (MDS) program combines industry-leading expertise, technology and tools in a highly customizable suite of services. Its "Outservicing" approach is a continuous and collaborative process that applies Change Management methodology to enable Ricoh to learn about customers' businesses and design solutions focused on their employees. Outservicing raises profitability by streamlining printing and document processes, all the while engaging employees and enhancing environmental sustainability.
