Ricoh Australia takes on Azure

Ricoh Australia has introduced Microsoft Azure to its IT services offerings and the company recently joined the Microsoft Partner Network.

“Ricoh Australia is three years into building a strong local IT services offering, and partnering with leading vendors is a critical component of our strategy to expand beyond managed print services,” said Matt Dixon, General Manager - IT Services at Ricoh Australia.

“As a reseller of Microsoft technologies, including Office 365 and Microsoft Azure, Ricoh can provide customers with advanced productivity and cloud solutions. Coupled with Ricoh Finance, which offers flexible payment options, customers can access this technology without any immediate capital expenditure,” said Dixon.

Microsoft Azure is the latest addition to Ricoh’s expanding Integrated Cloud practice offering. These include cloud migration project services; legacy workload engineering; management of complex hybrid cloud models; performance monitoring, management and support for cloud apps and infrastructure; and managing consumption and commercial applications to support public cloud platforms.

“Ricoh is serious about supporting customers’ transition to the cloud. Our strong global commitment to IT services and a team of more than 1,500 service delivery professionals worldwide is backed by more than 20 years of IT services expertise in Australia. We also offer a complete cloud advisory and readiness assessment to guide customers through the transition, ensuring the right solution is chosen to maximise value for their business.
“The Microsoft products resonate strongly with our customers and we look forward to extending our scope of work with them, providing them with market-leading technology and capability that facilitates more efficient, connected and convenient workplaces,” said Dixon.
