To help strengthen Higher Education and support a global knowledge-based economy, Universities and Colleges are constantly adapting and re-defining themselves to remain attractive to today’s students. To help fund this evolution, students are being asked to pay more for tuition and services than ever before, resulting in increased demands for an exceptional education and learning experience.
Ricoh’s vision is to play a key role in transforming the education and learning experience for both students and faculty, and turn spaces – including Classrooms, Libraries, Lounges and even legacy Print Rooms – into areas where employees and students alike can collaborate and develop their skills and knowledge. To achieve this, we build formal and informal communities of education experts – including Students, Faculty, Administration, Analysts and Partners – to better inform our strategy and approach to developing and delivering services, products and solutions that are in demand, and complement our existing areas of focus.
With increased fees, come heightened student and staff expectations. In response, Ricoh partners with education institutions to modernize their on campus collaboration and learning spaces, as well as provide comprehensive IT, print, communications and document management services. We work with our customers to regularly develop and introduce new offerings to support learning, teaching and collaboration, both on and off campus.
Education institutions can lower costs, and make faculty and administrators more effective in their roles, by introducing fully or partially managed services from Ricoh. Our approach begins with a detailed audit linked to campus collaboration, document management and learning services. Non-core academic processes – including print, IT and document management – can be supported by Ricoh on a fully or partially managed basis, allowing faculty and administration to focus on enhancing teaching, learning, research and administration.
Ricoh’s business process and document workflow consultants, help to identify opportunities to optimize document intensive Higher Education business processes including Human Resources, Accounts Payable and Receivable, Admissions and Student Records management. Through our professional services capabilities, and cloud based document and information management, Ricoh is able to facilitate anytime / anywhere access to information and files, while meeting education sector data privacy, compliance and security requirements.
