Ricoh USA transforms ediscovery in the public cloud

For 80 years, Ricoh, the Japanese multinational that first saw light as Riken Sensitized Paper, has been known for manufacturing. But even with its long history, digital transformation hasn’t passed Ricoh by.

“While overall, we think of Ricoh as manufacturers for 80+ years, management of information has really been the focus of Ricoh for many years,” says David Greetham, vice president of eDiscovery, sales and operations for Ricoh USA, the company’s Malvern, Penn.-based North and South America arm.

Specializing in cameras and office electronics, Ricoh has manufactured copiers for Pitney-Bowes and Toshiba, Fax machines for AT&T and Omnifax, even the 8-bit processor used in the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

It holds more than 46,000 patents for imaging and printing solutions, industrial products and digital cameras, and boasts 109,000 employees globally.
