Frequent MFP breakdowns, desktop printers without scanning functionality and slow response to service calls were frustrating the law firm's leadership. They wanted to be more efficient and productive--and work toward becoming a paperless organization. But to do that, employees needed to be able to scan paper documents directly into their document management system. Since they lacked scanning capability within close reach, employees had to get up from their desk and hunt for an operable MFP. It was time for a change. Isaac Wiles wanted more reliable printing technology and an improved workflow process.

"Ricoh is highly respected in the law firm industry. I don't really hear much about their competitors and where they are in the market. I don't want to be the test site or a guinea pig for a third- or fourth-tier provider."

After meeting with the firm's CEO to understand their firm's challenges, we talked to end-users--primarily paralegals and legal assistants--to learn what would make their work lives better.


Ricoh implemented a plan at Isaac Wiles for seamless scan and capture, managed fleet optimization and new printer technology.

  • New robust, feature-rich MFPs and desktop printers at workstations.
  • MFPs equipped with technology so every employee can scan, copy and print without ever leaving their desks.
  • An advanced workflow capture solution enables easy scanning into the document management system, automatic Bates Labeling and customized document workflows accessible at the MFP panel.
  • Integrated existing PIN authentication system to all new MFPs and printers.
