How we are supporting distributed workforces

How businesses print has changed. Printing, in many ways, remain a vital part of business processes. But how that printing is done will likely never be the same.

The “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Print in the Distributed Workforce 2022 Vendor Assessment” looks at exactly that topic. 

We are glad to share a portion of that document with you that reviews our efforts, strengths and challenges in a world where printing finds itself reorganizing to meet the needs of distributed and hybrid workforces.

The IDC MarketScape’s analysis positioned Ricoh as a Leader. While happy with the recognition, we recognize – as you likely do too – that the business printing has been changing for years, especially with increased mobile and remote workers.


The IDC MarketScape noted this in their vendor assessment: 

"Several IDC survey studies examining the future of work and work locations confirm the hypothesis that work from home will gain a greater share of future work conducted versus the pre-pandemic era. While print use is maturing, we do find that this mission-critical function remains essential for the preponderance of organizations' employees. As such, even under pandemic conditions, it is necessary to equip office workers and remote workers with access to print and other important document functions.”

We invite you to download this IDC MarketScape report to see the many ways our offerings have expanded to include digital services to support document, technology and information management in addition to our print services, including: 

  • Managed IT services
  • Business process automation through our Intelligent Business PlatformSM
  • Managed cloud print services
  • Intelligent Delivery mail services 
  • And much more.
Today, printing and digital services are essential business processes as organizations of all sizes adapt to a new way of working. Although we’ve long anticipated this shift, none of us knows exactly where it will go. What we do know is that we are glad to be on the journey with you.
