In addition to offering projector units that showcase Ricoh's excellent optical technology developed over many years, we develop related software, offer solutions services, and support customers in many other ways, making the most of our global sales and support network.
Unified Communication System
We offer an unprecedented visual communications system that enables real-time video and voice communications from multiple locations via the Internet. This system allows users to hold a meeting with people at remote locations without the use of a large screen or video conference system. Since meeting participants can freely handle and share various forms of data such as video, voice, documents, text, and handwritten input, they are able to feel as if they were meeting face to face.
Other new frontiers
In addition, we will further expand and improve our IT services, cloud services and other service businesses to meet changing customer needs. We aim to grow these new businesses and deliver even greater value to customers.
