Ricoh, Philadelphia Eagles Partner for Peak Performance of Front Office Operations
MALVERN, PA—December 2, 2013—Head coach Chip Kelly’s laminated play card and the stat sheets flowing through the press box are just two of the more visible products of a strategic partnership between the Philadelphia Eagles and Ricoh Americas.
Under the partnership, extended and expanded today, Ricoh makes information work for the Philadelphia Eagles by providing a full range of Managed Document Services to its 200-employee front office, including sales, marketing, HR, IT, legal and other operations. The extension reaffirms Ricoh’s position as the Official Document Solutions Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles, building on a partnership formed in 2010.
The partnership includes management of the Eagles’ fleet of multifunction products (MFPs), production printing devices, laser printers and the supplies they consume. Advanced capture, mobile cloud and green printing solutions help keep information secure while enhancing on-the-go productivity and supporting the organization’s sustainability initiatives.
“Ricoh is streamlining our office workflow to put our information to work for us, helping us become more efficient, green and cost-effective,” said Ari Roitman, the Eagles’ senior vice president of business. “They’ve been an ideal partner of ours, providing us with the guidance and equipment to help us mobilize information, while possessing core values that align with ours.
