The decision on where to invest your technology dollars is a big one, and not without risk. Print software technology changes quickly, and one-time leaders can quickly fall behind, or even go out of business. Promising start-ups or emerging companies may begin with big aspirations, only to fade out quickly.
Often the hardware investment takes center stage, and without print software to tell it what to do, it is often an empty vessel awaiting instructions; a car without gas or a driver. From digital and traditional print capabilities, to impactful designs and campaigns, it’s the combination of the right hardware and software that drives your print innovation.
- Automation drives device utilization, predictive scheduling and a streamlined production process
- Data is used throughout the workflow to track ordering, manufacturing, billing, payment and provide overall performance indicators
- Ricoh’s holistic, consultative process including assessment, recommendations, implementation and support from technical and marketing experts, can help you determine the best hardware and software solutions to meet your goals
Whatever decisions you make determine the direction of your entire organization: where your resources are positioned, what capabilities you are able to offer and the processes and infrastructure it takes to deliver customer satisfaction, while staying profitable and competitive.
