Ricoh Stands Out for Banking and Insurance Providers
“Financial services providers today need more than a reliable MFP from their document imaging vendor,” said Jamie Bsales, Director of Solutions Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “They need a partner who can help them streamline complex document workflows that typically include both paper and electronic documents, as well as one who understands the unique data security requirements that come with the territory. Ricoh demonstrated that it can be that trusted partner.”
In addition to its world-class document imaging hardware portfolio, Ricoh garnered points for its exceptional solutions offerings that include its cloud-ready services and Ricoh eForms Manager software and eSignature solution that cater to demands for efficient completion and submission of financial applications, contracts, and other documentation. The company also offers a full suite of workflow-assessment services to identify bottlenecks for customers and help them implement best practices, as well as Facilities & Workspace Management services that include meeting-room setup and A/V conferencing and equipment.
HP’s Portfolio Built for K–12 School Systems
“Times have never been more challenging for educators in the K–12 segment,” said Jamie Bsales, Director of Solutions Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “In addition to the perennial pressures of budgetary constraints and evolving curriculums, teachers and administrators are tasked with incorporating more technology into the classroom while also delivering provably improved outcomes. Our PaceSetter award winner has demonstrated the ability to support and advance these initiatives for their K–12 customers.”
“HP’s long history serving K–12 school systems is evident in its product mix,” noted Bsales. “In addition to its award-winning printer and MFP portfolio perfectly suited to the needs of the education vertical, the company offers laptops and Chromebooks specifically designed for students as well as an education software suite covering needs such as classroom management and student collaboration.”
