Ricoh Malaysia has previewed a new portfolio of products designed to start a "new age of visual communication", said the digital imaging and print solutions provider.
Tennis player Frederico Delbonis helped Ricoh Malaysia show its new office and business solutions during the recent ATP tour Malaysia open, said Ricoh Malaysia general manager - marketing, Nick Tan, at Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, where Delbonis showed his "speed serve" clocking a speed of 178km/h.
"We at Ricoh believe that sports aptly ties in with our tagline, 'imagine. change.' In almost any sport, the power of collective imagination is crucial to inspire a player to perform and play a great game," said Tan.
"Similarly in the unpredictable world of business, imagination is a powerful tool in developing unique ideas and innovations to stay ahead in a competitive environment," he said.
"In addition, Ricoh is a strong advocate in sustainability," said Tan. "Our business and IT solutions as well as our products and services are focused on evolutionising us as people into a paper-less environment. Hence, in line with our dedication to saving paper, we hope to continue to support the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) to save the trees and go green."
He said that every RM1 [US$0.31] contributed by participating guests for two attempts at the 'Speed Serve' challenge were channelled towards efforts to rehabilitate mangroves by the Malaysian Nature's Society (MNS).

Age of visual communications
Delbonis helped Ricoh show its age of visual communication with the company's new Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) and Unified Communication Systems (UCS).
The UCS provided real-time interactive audio and video communication with multiple locations, giving visitors an overview of the happenings in and around the Ricoh booth including Delbonis' meet and greet and the highlights at the 'Speed Serve' Challenge corner, enabling enhanced accessibility and connectivity at the event.
"The IWB and UCS are key in creating the future office," said Ricoh Malaysia general manager for technology solutions, Ian Lim. "There will no longer be a need to divert resources such as time, energy and man hours on activities that would usually be demanded in order to serve customers, meet strategic objectives, and develop new offerings effectively."
"These new products will render information sharing and visual communication between different parties, simple, effective and convenient," said Lim. "Furthermore, with the pace of change in today's IT environment, we are experiencing greater amounts of information being digitised and a rapid widespread of smart devices and tablet PC usage."
"As the cost for information sharing has drastically dropped and cloud computing begins to take hold, Ricoh also aims to provide IT solutions and services that can support and complement small and medium enterprises [SMEs] and organisations with their work by allowing the increase of both end-user productivity, cost-efficiency, and the minimisation of carbon footprint," he said.
