EMPOWERING DIGITAL WORKPLACES RICOH IMPROVES WORKPLACES USING INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES & SERVICES ENABLING INDIVIDUALS TO WORK SMARTER

There are still many problems to be solved around workers, society and social interaction. We are constantly thinking about people and how to help them work more creatively for a more satisfying life.

What We Offer Our Customers
EMPOWERING
DIGITAL WORKPLACES

In 2017, the Ricoh group created a new brand promise for our customers: “EMPOWERING DIGITAL WORKPLACES”.
Empowering Digital Workplaces means connecting people to information faster and more conveniently to improve communication and creativity.
This is based on the Ricoh “San-Ai Spirit” - The Spirit of Three Loves: Love your neighbor, Love your country, Love your work - which the company has followed since it was established in 1936.

At Ricoh we are constantly thinking about people and how to help them work more creatively for a more satisfying life.
The first Japanese copy machine transformed the workplace by helping people to transmit information accurately and quickly without the time-wasting and life-sapping tedium of endlessly reproducing business documents.
The first fax machine enabled the transmission of information to extend beyond mere hand-to-hand delivery to cross cities, countries, and the world in seconds and connect people everywhere.
These breakthroughs were the birth of what we now call “office automation”. This evolved from simple document creation, duplication, and delivery to changing the entire workflow with copying, printing, information communication, storage and search, and an endless series of workplace innovations.
As times changed, technology advanced. But there are still many problems to be solved around workers, society and social interaction. Ricoh will provide more solutions with “EMPOWERING DIGITAL WORKPLACES”.

Our Thoughts

  • Printing beyond printing

  • Printing beyond printing

  • Printing beyond printing

    What will the role of printing be in the future? We are considering how to bring printing deep into people’s lives. We see the possibility of digital printing that can inspire the power of the human imagination, help fulfill people’s dreams and solve many of the world’s problems.

    Today, we are giving communication a new value not just on paper, but on all kinds of mediums such as fabrics, building materials and even food.

    We are moving people’s minds by this “display printing.”

    Now we can even achieve digital printing that forms cells, medicines and battery parts. This “applied printing” has powerful life-changing effects.

    At Ricoh we create printing that relates to all our lives, and by using our digital technology we are already delivering a more abundant future for everyone.

    Even if digital is advanced in your workplace,
    it is meaningless if you can’t make the most of its advantages.

    Data only becomes valuable information when it touches “human emotions”: for example, by connecting offices and frontlines by digitizing workflows and communications and reforming the entire work process. And also by storing conversations and movements in the workplace and transforming them into visible information that everyone can see.

    Ricoh is now opening the door to new ways to connect workers and information, that shed light on the possibilities that are hidden in every business field and society and opening eyes and minds to improvements in workflow and communication.

    This leads to greater collaboration and solutions to social challenges.

    We support a new style of “working” by “giving shape to new digital possibilities for future”.

    By connecting workers and information, we create workplace solutions that, in turn, resolve social challenges. We help to realize the prosperity of companies and enhance society at the same time.

    Based on this approach since Ricoh was founded in 1936, we, along with all our group employees, have always taken on challenging tasks that are ahead of their time. This has formed our concept to balance the relationship between the economy (Prosperity), society (People) and the environment (the Planet). We call this the “Three Ps Balance”.

    In 2017, we decided to tackle five key issues based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): “Productivity Enhancement”, “Intelligence Creation”, “QOL Enhancement”, “Zero-carbon Society”, and a “Circular Economy”.

    The Ricoh Group will connect all the solutions we are striving to develop by EMPOWERING DIGITAL WORKPLACES everywhere, to create a truly sustainable society.
