Create smarter workplaces with innovative technologies


Traditional work environments are becoming more outdated as advanced automation and collaboration solutions help to create more productive and innovative workplaces. With the proliferation of smart devices, remote employees are becoming increasingly mobile. The right collaboration services and solutions empower teams with the use of this smart technology by making it easy to share ideas in real time via laptops, tablets and smartphones.

“Our customers are working differently. They're working in a new digital environment in fundamentally different ways — always on with access to information from anywhere and anytime."

Glenn Laverty Senior Vice President, Marketing, Ricoh Americas President and Chief Executive Officer, Ricoh Canada, Inc.

With today's technology, employees can get work done anytime, anywhere. And with the ability to automate processes and easily capture data, they can work more efficiently and keep ideas moving. Even artificial intelligence and virtual reception services are already taking us into a more innovative future.

Keypoint Intelligence interviewed Ricoh's Glenn Laverty and developed a white paper that helps to define diverse technologies and services that

contribute to smarter workplaces. These are broken up into the following six smart-workplace categories that can help enhance innovation, collaboration and productivity:
