Print Service Providers and enterprises given marketing services boost with Ricoh and Quadient collaboration
Combined software expertise enables smoother management of large-scale campaigns
Ricoh Europe, London, 30 March 2022 – Ricoh has joined forces with Quadient, a powerful force in customer communication related solutions, to enable Print Service Providers (PSPs) and enterprises to make a smooth transition into marketing service provision for large scale campaigns.
Quadient is an international company specialising in business process automation, customer experience management, and mailing equipment. Quadient Inspire software rapidly creates communication templates for physical and digital channels from a single design interface. Using a drag and drop approach, powerful communications can be built to share content and messages across multiple channels.
RICOH ProcessDirector™, Ricoh’s automated end to end workflow management solution, offers tight integration with Quadient Inspire to manage the end-to-end processes. It combines its best in class production and output capabilities with Quadient Inspire’s omnichannel and customer journey mapping capabilities. This allows PSPs and enterprises to create and manage integrated omnichannel campaigns, combining physical and digital communications on the fly. This can include print, HTML 5 based web and e-mail, text, and even WhatsApp communications. The level of interaction achieved can be recorded and detailed in a complete campaign report and dashboard.
Both solutions are listed in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Customer Communication Management. The guide highlights vendors representative of the CCM market.
