Ricoh Canada Inc. Launches RCloud Services

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada Inc. today announced the 
launch of RCloud Services, a platform for a suite of cloud-based services 
being offered by Ricoh Canada. The first of these services is Ricoh's 
Enterprise Content Management solution, which provides customers with a 
powerful "Software as a Service" model to address their content management 
needs. 
The company is focusing on small to mid-sized organizations, but the solution 
is robust enough to easily satisfy the demands of enterprise deployments at 
the departmental level - and in almost any industry. RCloud Services: ECM, 
powered by Laserfiche, provides organizations with rapid access to the 
benefits of a comprehensive ECM, but without the large capital investment. 
According to Eric Fletcher, Vice President of Marketing at Ricoh, "We've 
removed the need for large, up-front capital outlays and the challenges of 
on-premise infrastructure. Add to that the strength and reach of our truly 
national service coverage model, as well as out-of-the-box functionality 
targeting specific key verticals, and the result is a truly compelling case 
for RCloud Services: ECM." 
Ricoh Canada President and CEO, Mr. Glenn Laverty, underscored the importance 
of this launch to Ricoh Canada saying "this announcement goes a long way 
towards redefining Ricoh for Canadian businesses. We're providing an 
industry first Software as a Service (SaaS) Electronic Content Management 
(ECM) tool, and one that is inclusive of workflow capabilities on a secure 
platform. It's yet another example of how Ricoh Canada has long since moved 
past just being a hardware and service provider; our services business now 
extends to the Cloud." 
The offering is designed to assist Ricoh customers in achieving higher cost 
savings versus a traditional software solution model, which typically involves 
deployment strategies, onsite support and application administration. RCloud 
Service: ECM provides elegant, secure, Cloud-based functionality that includes 
document imaging, document management and records management across a range of 
industries and verticals. The goal is to allow Ricoh customers to offload 
time-consuming tasks such as upgrades, maintenance, and issue resolution, 
while ensuring high network uptime and information accessibility and security 
- all delivered within a monthly operating budget.
