Ricoh AU to resell Logitech solutions in move to aid expansion

31 Aug 2017

​Ricoh Australia has announced a partnership agreement with Logitech in a deal the company says is an ongoing strategy aimed at ‘providing customers with complementary, integrated video platform services and solutions in support of empowering digital workplaces.’

Under the agreement, Ricoh will resell the Logitech range of audio visual equipment, which includes conferencing cameras as part of its own portfolio of collaborative meeting room solutions.

“We are 100 per cent committed to integrating and reselling best in class technologies as we believe that organisations should not have to compromise on product solution, performance, capacity, ease of use, or price,” says Daniel Zoncapé, strategic partner manager for Ricoh Australia.

“We’ve therefore built an ecosystem with strategic partners to provide Australian business and educational institutions with access to our innovative technology from trusted partner companies.”

Zoncapé asserts the agreement will benefit their entire partner ecosystem.

“The Logitech solutions are a perfect match for our business in complimenting our vision of making information more mobile and more personal and enhancing the way people interact with the world around them, improving their work life,” says Zoncapé.

“We look forward to working with Logitech and other world class companies to deliver industry leading solutions and are excited about taking this advanced technology to market here in Australia.”

According to Logitech, its existing client base in Australia mirrors that of Ricoh locally and includes many of Australia’s major corporations and public sector organisations as well as small and medium size businesses.

Bringing these solutions together will provide customers with superior functionality and performance as well as the convenience of a one-stop shop for digital collaboration, the companies affirm.

“We are pleased that Ricoh Australia has agreed to this partnership,” says Jason Moss, head of global go-to-market for Logitech’s video collaboration group.

“By closely collaborating with Ricoh, we are able to offer a better user experience to our joint customers.”
