The RICOH Unified Communication System is bringing benefits to a wide range of scenes, benefits that include everything from the realization of easy and low-cost visual communication to increases in operation efficiency and productivity; cost reductions for the transportation expense, transit time, and personnel expense involved in business travel; higher customer satisfaction; and support for the company's business continuity plan.
It takes a lot of time to share information since headquarters members have to visit each branch and office to hold meetings.
Using the RICOH Unified Communication System to hold headquarters and branch/office meetings, it is possible to share among branches knowhow that in the past tended to remain within a single branch. The system is easy to use so communication is readily achieved, and this leads to an increase in operation speed since smooth operational ties are formed between branches that used to act independently of each other.
Whenever there is a meeting, branch members have to travel to the headquarter to hold the meeting.Since transportation takes time and money, your business efficiency is decreasing.
Now it is possible to switch to a video conferencing / web conferencing sytem for meetings which used to involve travels from different locations to the headquarter.
Transportation, lodging expenses and business trips indemnities have their cost dramatically reduced.
When only selected members participate in meetings, it is difficult to accurately communicate the information to those who did not participate. Participants bring investigation tasks back with them, and it takes time to make the necessary readjustments.
If a videoconferencing system is used, it is possible for even people who not ordinarily attend meetings to participate. The information is communicated in real time to all members, and matters can be considered on the spot. Since discussions can take place while images of actual objects are shown, work efficiency is increased. The same thing can be done between different companies.
