Ricoh showcases innovative new ways to transform business at drupa 2016
Ricoh Europe, London, 15 October 2015 – Ricoh will bring a range of products and services to drupa 2016 that will enable Print Service Providers to step ahead on their paths of transformation. Encompassing new opportunities, and routes to greater productivity and profitability. The world’s largest printing trade fair is scheduled for 31 May to 10 June at the Messe, Düsseldorf, Germany, and Ricoh will once again be located in Hall 8a.
The company will showcase its expansive market leading portfolio of digital print solutions, demonstrating end-to-end integrated workflows, from pre- to post press, that maximise job flexibility, production capacity and operational efficiency.
“We have worked with print service providers to help them transform their businesses in the face of a fast-paced and dynamically changing print production and communications landscape,” comments Benoit Chatelard, Vice President, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Europe. “Now, as they look to be many things to many clients, we stand ready to help them expand their services, improve utilisation and streamline operations for end-to-end efficiency. Visitors to our stand will experience a wide range of technologies and tools that will allow them to continue their production printing transformation.”
Central to Ricoh’s presence at the show is its best-in-class production print portfolio of inkjet and toner-based technologies and solutions. Ricoh’s TotalFlowTM workflow suite delivers up-to-the-second job reportability, workflow automation and maximised productivity. Combined, they are the foundation of a digital printing powerhouse second to none.
Ricoh has also expanded its portfolio with an enhanced range of industrial solutions, including additive manufacturing (3D printing). These industrial solutions can inspire print service providers who are increasingly facing market pressure to broaden the range of services they offer.
Chatelard continues, “We see drupa 2016 as a great opportunity to engage with print service providers from Europe and beyond as well as other key stakeholders in the wider print and communications industries. It is also an opportunity for us to help progressive professional print businesses to open new worlds, unlock new opportunities, new markets, new applications and new ways of working. As an industry, we are undergoing a period of rapid change – change in consumer trends, technologies, client demands and expectations. That requires all of our businesses to adapt to meet these evolving challenges. Ricoh at drupa will show real, proven examples of various integrated applications that we believe will inspire and energise visitors, and will serve as their tools for change.
“It is also encouraging to see that print is enjoying a revival, but that can continue only as an integrated component of a broader multimedia communications strategy. This presents possibilities for agile print service providers who are willing to embrace these opportunities. At Ricoh, we are dedicated to supporting our clients and helping them continually develop print and related services, for today and tomorrow.
