Output Consulting Services - Audio and video conferencing for the rest of us


Ricoh Output Consulting Services

In large enterprises, print environments are often massive and unwieldy-with responsibility for device management distributed across multiple locations, functions and/or departments. It can be difficult to ascertain the full scope and cost of such environments. And yet, these environments are often sources of untapped opportunities to drive efficiency not only in print fleet management but also in core business processes.

With Ricoh Output Consulting Services, our seasoned consultants engage with large organizations to perform a Document Output Strategy Discovery (DOSD). The engagement spans four core activities:

1. Plan. Ricoh collaborates with the enterprise to scope out key challenges and goals as they relate to the output environment and the business overall.

2. Collect. Ricoh uses our suite of proven tools to identify and map all components of the output environmentcreating a baseline "snapshot" of the print environment and print-related workflow and costs.

3. Analyze. With extensive data about the output environment, Ricoh consultants take a deeper dive into the current situation and begin identifying opportunities to optimize.

4. Recommend. Finally, Ricoh delivers a set of actionable recommendations for improving productivity and efficiency, enhancing sustainability and reducing costs. Such initiatives may focus on more effectively routing print jobs, allocating print costs and controlling access, as well as reducing waste and simplifying management.
