RICOH INTRODUCES DOCUCLASS DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SOLUTION
RiSVP Member Software to Streamline Business Processes
West Caldwell, NJ, December 22, 2008 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced the release of DocuClass document management software - one of the first solutions to become available to the Ricoh Channel through its recently introduced Ricoh Independent Solutions Vendor Program (RiSVP).
DocuClass, a product of Cima Software Corporation, Inc., is a complete process-oriented, document management software solution that enables organizations to streamline their internal operations by dynamically controlling and organizing the capture, management, access, and distribution of documents and information within their business process. Enhanced for Ricoh, the DocuClass MFP Link ties the software directly to most Ricoh multifunction products (MFPs), offering a simplified method of document indexing, archiving, document processing, workflow routing and full version control directly from the MFP control panel.
“We are delighted to partner with Ricoh in delivering world-class document management solutions to the marketplace,” said Nelson Cano, vice president, Sales and Marketing, Cima Software Corporation, Inc. “Going forward we will continue to develop innovative solutions for Ricoh customers.”
One of three Ricoh Alliance programs, RiSVP, developed in cooperation with Ricoh solution partners and Ricoh’s direct and dealer channels, focuses on two key areas: expansion of channel marketing opportunities for RiSVP members and simplifying solution access for Ricoh sales channels. By providing RiSVP member products directly from Ricoh, the direct and dealer channels have more opportunities for new revenue growth combined and simplified sales operations. In turn, RiSVP members enjoy faster and greater financial return on the investments they have made in developing solutions that when combined with Ricoh’s award-winning product portfolio address customers’ key concerns. Cima Software is a Platinum Plus member of RiSVP.
“Together with Cima Software, we will continue to provide customers with real enhanced value by delivering a broad set of capabilities designed to improve business processes and reduce operational costs,” said Hede Nonaka, executive vice president, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “Both organizations are committed to developing solutions driven by customer need and not industry hype.”
