• Law Journals' Readers Praise Ricoh's Document Management Service Two Years Running

      WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Dec. 6, 2011 – Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions and services, today announced that IKON Office Solutions, a Ricoh company, continues to win high marks for serving the legal profession and is the readers’ choice for best document management service provider in three prominent publications: The New York Law Journal, Connecticut Law Tribune and The Recorder of California.

      A fourth journal, Philadelphia’s Legal Intelligencer, awarded Ricoh a bronze in this category, as well as a silver in electronic discovery and a gold in office equipment. Connecticut Law Tribune readers also awarded Ricoh the gold in the office equipment category.

      “The legal profession is one of the most demanding settings for document management and supporting technology,” said Mark Davey, Vice President, Legal Enterprise Solutions, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “Volume is high, accuracy is mandatory, and time is of the essence. We embrace this challenge, and we’re grateful that readers are affirming our strong performance. That’s why so many legal organizations come to us, including nearly 90 percent of Am Law 200 and NLJ 250 firms, as well as many Fortune 1000 companies.”

      Final awards are based on 2011 survey results. Thousands of readers cast votes across the four publications. The voting was conducted via online ballots compiled by the publications. Readers were notified of the ballot through direct emails and online advertisements linking to the ballot across ALM’s network of websites. Each ballot consisted of categories encompassing areas such as technology, research, accounting, insurance, financial services, litigation support, education, recruiting and staffing. Once voting was completed, the ballot was scrubbed of all non-eligible, non-end-user votes. The final totals and rankings reflect only the votes cast by legitimate end-users.
