Information Mobility

Information mobility means making sure your organization’s information is as mobile as your people. Do you have the ability to capture, transform, and manage your information in order to provide insights into your operational efficiencies and help you make better business decisions?

Far too many companies don’t, according to IDC research, commissioned by Ricoh. The study details the ways, from silos to overreliance on paper, that your organization’s information may be gridlocked. And when it is, your performance suffers.

In this new world of work, information mobility is a critical component for your success. When information moves freely and smoothly into, out of, and throughout an enterprise, your employees can access it whenever they want, wherever they want, in whatever form they want. And that, the same IDC report concludes, can lead to increased productivity and revenue, along with decreased operational costs.

Information mobility is made up of three pillars working in harmony:

Technology Infrastructure

A strong technical infrastructure not only moves information from A to B (and maybe C, D, E and F); it does so efficiently with security in mind. It’s hassle free for your organization, as well as self-sustaining and reliable. At its core, it’s the foundation for an information ecosystem that your employees can tap into and that you can rely on to connect teams.

According to a 2013 KRC Research study commissioned by Ricoh, 78% of business owners surveyed admitted that they knew of technology that would make their work more productive — but had not made the move to implement it.

Without support from a strong technical infrastructure, even the best information management processes and innovative workforces can stumble. Set everyone up for success with the tools and infrastructure they need to thrive.

Information Management

At its heart, information mobility is about making information work for you. In addition to moving information freely, this means making sure it’s available, adaptable, searchable, intelligent, portable, and reusable. Without the proper information management processes in place, no amount of technology or innovation in the workforce will maximize your potential return.

Whether you need to outsource your IT to cut costs and stabilize performance, or implement a new business process to streamline your organization, our dedicated teams can design and execute a plan to meet your desired business outcomes. 

Workstyle Innovation

Technology and information systems are at the core of what we do. But we know that it’s people who bridge the gap between the two. You likely have employees who use a combination of legacy and modern systems, collaborate across time zones and geographies, all with generational  and workstyle preferences that need to be understood. How do you ensure each person has the proper tools and training to collaborate effectively? By working with a partner that values and understands workers as much as technology and processes.

At Ricoh, we understand the changing workforce today and we can help you mange those changes to make everyone successful.
