Shine bright like a diamond - Ricoh NZ bags partner award

25 Sep 2014

Ricoh New Zealand has been awarded the ultimate gong from US business process software giant, Kofax being named a new Kofax Diamond Partner.

One of only 13 such partners worldwide – and the only one in New Zealand – Ricoh is now part of an elite global group.

Mike Pollok, Ricoh New Zealand’s Managing Director, says to describe him as thrilled would be an understatement.

“Earlier this year the Ricoh Group was announced as Kofax Global Partner of the Year, with special mention given to Ricoh New Zealand," he says. "Now, to be awarded this status on our own merits is exceptional.

“We live in the information age and whether it’s getting information into your business or getting it out, everyone wants to do it more efficiently.

"This is where Kofax comes into its own. Business efficiency is a bottom line for both Kofax and our Business Solutions team, and the award is the ultimate recognition."

This year Ricoh has invested in 19 additional Business Solutions staff and now has the largest team of Kofax-certified consultants in New Zealand.

Pollok says he’s immensely proud of the Business Solutions team: “The Diamond Partner status is a real point of difference for us and highlights the team’s significant technical depth and superior performance in the market.”

The win provides flow-on benefits for Ricoh’s clients too, with the Business Solutions team now able to access further expert-level training and workshops.

Ricoh New Zealand’s skilled team of business process analysts have expertly configured Kofax’s scan-and-capture solutions to meet the needs of more than 30 clients in New Zealand.
