A new ITMarketScape report by analyst firm IDC has positioned Ricoh as a global leader in the high-speed inkjet market. The company’s InfoPrint 5000 and RICOH Pro VC60000 production print platforms have served as the foundation for a massive global footprint bolstered significantly by Ricoh’s proven software and services. The IDC ITMarketScape: Worldwide High-Speed Inkjet Press 2016 Vendor Assessment highlights this foundation, and support for a wide range of solutions and applications, as Ricoh’s strengths. The global provider of market intelligence credits Ricoh’s leadership position to its commitment to innovation, exemplified by its 200 worldwide inkjet patents.
IDC ITMarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilises rigorous scoring based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria. It provides a clear framework in which different IT and telecom vendors can be meaningfully compared.
The report is also a recognition of Ricoh’s commitment to putting customers first. It is a testimony of how Ricoh has gone beyond the classic obsessions of the production printing industry, to look at what its people, processes and technologies are doing for customers, and what more can be done, today, tomorrow and beyond.
