Ricoh will be showcasing their end-to-end business solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore, tomorrow (2 December 2015).

Called Ricoh 360, the showroom will display Ricoh's imaging, IT and communication solutions that could help SMEs enhance productivity. Solutions can be "customised to the customer's needs and be integrated into the customer's infrastructure and management system", said Tohru Saitoh, Assistant General Manager, Corporate Planning & Marketing, Managed Services Division, Ricoh Singapore."This ensures that customers reap the benefits from higher-performing, more reliable and cost-effective IT solutions, supporting more efficient and agile business operations."

According to Saitoh, SMEs are still hesitant to invest in IT tools and use web-based services in their operations due to the misconception that doing so is costly and challenging. "However, the truth is that such tools and services can enhance business processes and increase operational speed, enabling SMEs to save time and resources. SMEs could thus increase their productivity, reduce operational costs, and gain a competitive edge by efficiently using technology."

He added: " In these ever-changing times, SMEs must transform their business models and be ready to capture growth opportunities. SMEs are hence recommended to engage external expertise who can help identify areas of improvement in their processes and put together a suite of technological solutions that address their needs without incurring hefty costs in investments."

"For instance, we are providing services that could help reduce our customers' power consumption/carbon footprint when it comes to maintaining numerous servers and networking equipment and devices. This is possible through our experience in implementing virtualisation projects," said Saitoh. Besides that, Ricoh offers effective document management systems that streamline an organisation's shared resources and technological innovations that enhance employees' performance.
