Ricoh, a global technology company specialising in office imaging equipment, production print solutions, document management systems and IT services is exhibiting its latest developments at Distree EMEA 2015, which takes place from 24th-27th February 2015. The company is eager to strengthen its product distribution network throughout EMEA, as part of its international growth strategy. In the last twelve months Ricoh ITDC has expanded into Belarus and CIS region, Czech Republic, Slovakia, North Africa, as well as the Middle East and Gulf region.
Matthew Clark, head of business development for Ricoh's IT Distribution Channel said: "Distree EMEA is one of the key channel events for Ricoh in terms of meeting and renewing contact with major channel partners. As we accelerate our global expansion throughout 2015 we are looking to engage with experienced and reliable partners to secure our foothold in new and emerging markets. This year's event is an opportunity for Ricoh to reaffirm our commitment to the channel and to develop strategic partnerships that will support future growth."
During the event Ricoh will be showcasing flagship product innovations, including GelJet printers – a cost effective and eco-sensitive alternative to laser and inkjet printers for homes and offices.
Ricoh offers a range of laser printers and multi-function printers - both colour and monochrome devices. Ricoh will also look to sell its GelJet range through the channel and build routes-to-market for its projectors.
"One of the cornerstones of our success to date has been our ability to cultivate a reliable and focused team of distributors and retailers with the local knowledge required to achieve results. We are conscious of the need to attract the best partners in order to meet ambitious growth targets over the next few years." Clark added.
Ricoh's product portfolio is suitable for all market sectors and offers compelling partner programmes for resellers. It offers a strong alternative to some of the established consumer printer brands, allowing partners to achieve a more balanced portfolio. Ricoh's GelJet range offers a number of attractive features that small businesses are seeking right now. Ricoh delivers savings in four key areas: running costs, energy, space and time.
In the entry level printer and MFP segment, Ricoh has a broad product portfolio that includes a comprehensive range of products including A4 single function, A3 multi-function and production printing.
Ricoh's Reseller portal which gives channel partners instant access to business critical information, tools, training, and support has been developed as part of the overall IT Distribution channel strategy to establish a global community of Ricoh IT resellers. Further underlying Ricoh's commitment to the channel, the company's Partner Programmes are designed to reward partners for their contribution, help them capitalise on new opportunities, add value for their customers and drive growth and profitability with Ricoh.
