RICOH Spaces Platform
Today’s office workplace is a digital workplace, where businesses and individuals
are empowered to work smarter through utilising innovative technology. Smart
buildings are no longer the future – they are expected today.
Ricoh offers solutions that enable businesses to tackle the key
challenges facing them today, and in the future, bringing about
a digital transformation at the pace they desire. Among Ricoh’s
digital technologies is RICOH Spaces, a modular platform that
is designed to drive efficiencies in your business by creating a
truly connected, smart workplace, solving your problems today,
whilst anticipating the needs of tomorrow.
By 2025, the global labour force is estimated to reach
approximately 3.69 billion people, with Generation X accounting
for over one-quarter and millennials making up almost half
of the workforce. Both cohorts are technologically inclined,
globally focused, and highly educated. The lifestyle and
experience gained may be valued over pay when it comes to
talent retention in the future. The preference for a work-life
balance will become king in organisations as we head into the
new digital age.
With RICOH Spaces, Ricoh is bringing together people, places and experiences with innovative technology and user-centric design.
Being modular, RICOH Spaces is also scalable and can evolve as your business needs do.
Smart Office Solution
If the needs of your business and employees
are changing faster than your workplace can
keep up with, you’re not alone.
RICOH Spaces is a cloud-hosted workplace enhancement
platform designed to optimise your business with areas such
as desk bookings, space bookings, IoT, wayfinding, workplace
insights and more, taking you on a cost-effective and flexible
journey towards a truly connected workplace.
Easy to implement
Getting started couldn’t be easier. Every module in our RICOH
Spaces suite comes with a clear deployment plan, and access to
our experts to help you along the way. We’ve also got lots of
great training material for you to read at your own leisure, and
to help with your user adoption. We want to take the pain out
of the mundane for your employees, allowing them to spend
time on the tasks that matter, and ensuring they have the right
environment to succeed.
Your employees are your greatest asset
Design your workspaces to maximise
your employees’ productivity towards
business outcomes, empowering them to
become your greatest asset for achieving
measurable, strategic growth.
The future workforce
Children today are growing up with technology readily available
around their homes, so it comes as no surprise that as they
enter the workforce, the new generation will expect the same
experience around the office. A smarter, connected office
delivers a better experience to employees and facilitates a great
culture for everyone.
Creating the best working environment, with the right balance of
people, places and technology, makes it easier to retain existing
employees, while attracting the right talent to your business.
Taking the pain out of the mundane
We know that everyday tasks such as booking meetings,
arranging for the arrival of a visitor, logging issues about your
equipment or even finding out where you are going, can be
frustrating, and prevent employees from focusing on the areas
where they feel truly productive.
RICOH Spaces focuses on doing all the hard work for you,
whether that’s our interactive floor plans taking the pain out
of finding and booking your desk or meeting room, our IoT
informing you of real-time space availability, or our visitor
management allowing you to pre-book in advance for quick
QR code scan check-in on the day.
These everyday tasks should be effortless, leading to an agile
working lifestyle which will benefit and boost employee
productivity and happiness.
Connect and empower your employees
RICOH Spaces is available via browser, desktop application and
mobile application, serving your employees when they need it
Our mobile application supports agile working, putting the
workplace in your pocket. Employees shouldn’t feel tied to their
desks; empower them to reserve a meeting room on the way to
the office, easily view their upcoming meetings for the day on
the train, or receive notification when a visitor has arrived for
them whilst away from their desk.
Truly RICOH Spaces
A traditional office environment can be detrimental for growing businesses if the
physical space is an unmovable beast.
RICOH Spaces helps you to achieve
flexible workspaces that will evolve with
your needs over time.
A better understanding of your space
Without an understanding of your office, and how it is currently
utilised, it is impossible to know if you are making the right
decisions and receiving the expected ROI.
RICOH Spaces provides clear insights on your space usage,
showing you which areas are utilised well, and which are not
being used to their potential, so that you can be armed with the
data before making any changes.
Make cost-saving decisions
With clear utilisation data available, and insights into how your
space is being used, you can be empowered to make costsaving decisions such as freeing up under-utilised space for new
occupants, thereby reducing operational costs.
With hindsight, insight and foresight, you can see what
happened over the last few months, what is happening right
now, and start to predict what will happen in the future. This
will allow you to make decisions such as shutting down extra
floors during times where occupancy is forecast to be low
(such as the summer school holidays), reducing your utility and
maintenance costs for this time period.
By adopting RICOH Spaces as a strategic tool, you can unlock the
specific patterns that drive productivity in your business, creating
intelligence that optimises your commercial real estate.
RICOH Smart Integration
Connecting all your data together is key
in providing you with clear insights across
your entire business.
