Meeting room services, collaboration solutions and the new RICOH eDiscovery On Demand puts all of the control in users’ hands with none of the hassle

MALVERN, Pa., August 30, 2016 – Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced its ILTACON 2016 lineup to help overburdened law firms and corporate legal departments streamline and standardize their business processes to drive efficiencies and savings. Leveraging proven cloud-based technologies, Ricoh has designed its booth, #720/722, to give visitors the opportunity to see the company’s Meeting Room Services, collaboration solutions and brand-new RICOH eDiscovery On Demand solution in action, simulated in an environment similar to their offices. mindSHIFT, a Ricoh company that delivers outsourced IT solutions to customers and a leader in IT legal services is also at the show in booth #724/726, demonstrating the latest features and functionality of Microsoft Windows 10 that can deliver even greater efficiency and improvements to the legal desktop.

Information is at the core of law firms’ work. Unfortunately, in many firms, collaboration and communication are slowed by outdated tools, workflow and processes. From lack of standardization in processes leaving attorneys constantly redefining specifications to issues as seemingly simple as inefficient meetings, many firms are missing out on cost savings and efficiency gains. Ricoh’s solutions on display at ILTACON take direct aim at these pain points:

  • Meeting Room Services from Ricoh provides end-to-end support to help optimize how one of your firm’s most important assets, meeting space, is utilized. From how users reserve the room to how they use it once occupied – including communications technologies such as video conferencing, projectors and Interactive Whiteboards to drive an engaging, interactive, informative experience – Meeting Room Services can help drive collaboration to new heights.
  • Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) empower attorneys and staff to share critical information swiftly and securely regardless of geographic location. No matter where an attorney’s work takes them, they can stay up to date with access to the same visuals their colleagues are seeing in meetings. RICOH IWBs, which feature solutions ranging from 21.5 to 84.0 inches, can connect to dozens of devices at a time to keep information flowing.

    • RICOH eDiscovery On Demand is a newly unveiled user-driven, cloud-hosted eDiscovery solution, which helps standardize on best practices for eDiscovery throughout an organization. Customizable, easy-to-use forms put the most powerful industry solutions at users’ fingertips for a fraction of the cost, helping put into place efficient, effective, more automated workflows. In addition to making today’s huge data volumes easier to handle, RICOH eDiscovery On Demand makes checking job status quick and easy, as opposed to in the past which often required pulling information from disparate sources. This secured solution leverages the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

    • mindSHIFT’s team of legal IT specialists support and advise many of the largest law firms in the US. This team is well equipped to solve the most complex legal IT challenges and projects including: Microsoft Windows 10 and Office 2016 migrations, security solutions and assessment remediation, developing end user computing strategies, messaging technology and integration, and IT lifecycle management.

“Law firms, perhaps to an even greater degree than other businesses today, rely heavily on information management, collaboration and communication,” said Mark Davey, Vice President, Legal Solutions, Ricoh USA, Inc. “For that reason, we’ve focused our portfolio, including the newly unveiled RICOH eDiscovery On Demand, on making those three necessities simple and efficient by leveraging the capabilities the cloud has to offer. No matter where your meeting is, no matter where you are, no matter when you need information, our portfolio and mindSHIFT’s team of legal IT specialists are focused on providing attorneys what they need, when they need it, so they can continue growing their business and satisfying their clients’ expectations.”
