EXTON, Pa., April 26, 2022 – Ricoh USA, Inc., today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, will feature Ricoh IT Services on its 2022 Tech Elite 250 list. This list recognizes solution providers across the U.S. and Canada that have earned the highest level of technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, such as Accenture, Dell Technologies, Cisco, and more. Companies chosen for the Tech Elite 250 list have distinguished themselves as dedicated and passionate solution providers willing to go above and beyond for their customers by ensuring they have the training and technical know-how necessary to provide expert-level service.

These solution providers know their customers depend on their training and expertise to help them overcome today’s IT challenges and achieve full digital transformation across the enterprise. To provide that expert service and care, solution providers must maintain consistently high levels of training and certification from IT vendors and achieve the highest tiers within those vendors’ partner programs.

"We are proud to be featured on this year’s Tech Elite 250 list," said Bob Lamendola, Senior Vice President, Technology and Head of Digital Services Center, Ricoh North America. "By collaborating with best-of-breed strategic partners, we’re able to most effectively deliver what our customers need. Specifically, these investments enable us to offer more cloud based as-a-service offerings that are crucial to support today’s workplace needs, such as infrastructure-as-a-service or disaster recovery-as-a-service. As a customer-centric company, we’re committed to investing in ways that will power work of the future for all organizations.”

Ricoh engages a tight network of software and technology partners through its Partner and Alliance Community, helping to ensure it provides customers with the capabilities needed to meet market demands. From providing engineering support to collaborating on R&D, these close working relationships can help those in the program get more out of their existing products.

“CRN’s annual Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers that have earned top-level certifications from key technology suppliers and proven their ability to consistently meet the high standards of their customers and partners,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers featured on this list have maintained a consistent focus on innovation and have built a comprehensive understanding of the ever-evolving technologies and practices that enable ongoing success in the IT channel. We’re proud to honor them in this manner.”
