Case Study: School District 23, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
About School District 23
Located in the Okanagan Valley, School District 23 is the fifth largest district in British Columbia. It encompasses 43 elementary, middle, secondary and alternative schools that together serve 22,000 students. The district supports its students by providing them with a safe and inspiring learning environment, and strives to develop each student into a lifelong learner and healthy, productive member of the global community.
The district turned to Ricoh to implement a solution that would digitize their files and records, and bring them up to date with the latest in education technology.
While cost was important to the district, it was also important that they select a partner that would be part of their team; a partner that understood and invested in their strategic direction and wanted the district to be successful.
After discussing the district's needs and vision, the Ricoh team upgraded their office with a new print management solution and digitized their microfiche to enable staff to more easily search for, find and share documents. Ricoh's information digitization and print management solutions also helped the district get more out of their multifunction printers without unnecessary additional costs.
Our new print management technology equipped teachers, administrators and students with the ability to digitize their content and avoid the need to print physical documents. The solution also impacted systems they had in place in classrooms, like smartboards and laptops, and created an environment where digital content could be shared and consumed without relying on physical copies.
