How Ricoh Asia Pacific and WeP are Working Together to Meet the Growing Printing Needs of Digital Natives

Digital natives are moving into the corporate world with more high-tech expectations. They want high-performance technology in their workdays that mirrors the connectedness they have in their personal lives. When there are more and more people printing, businesses will have to change and become more responsive to this kind of technology. It's important for businesses to have a "intelligent" multifunction printer in this day and age. A company can't rely on standard printers when it needs to print on a large scale or in a complicated way. Having a secure and up-to-date printing infrastructure in your business is more important now than ever. This infrastructure should be able to provide high-quality printing while also giving your employees a better experience.

Ricoh and the WeP Partnership

In November 2019, WeP and Ricoh signed a distributorship agreement to serve corporate printing needs. Their mission is to provide cutting-edge multifunction printers and printing solutions to the digital printing sector across the nation.

WeP Solutions is a renowned, BSE-listed company in India featuring three core business segments: digital, retail, and MPS (Managed Printing Services). The given three business segments tend to operate in distinct domains while reaching out to different sets of customers.

WeP, the country’s pioneering MPS (Managed Print Service) provider, has now become the first-ever Ricoh authorised dealer for printers across India. WeP brings forth its over two decades of relevant expertise in the field of MPSs in India for selling and servicing Ricoh products that aim to empower businesses towards working smarter and being more productive, contributing to the overall growth of businesses in the country.

Ultimately, it is anticipated that this partnership will supply businesses with cost-effective printing and automation solutions that will help organisations of all kinds and types in the long term. The ultimate objective is to give digital workplaces more control.
