Services relating to AV remote control, monitoring, and troubleshooting have been created to keep workplaces running. The three packages from Ricoh—ranging from purely reactive response to remote monitoring, all the way to the most comprehensive option of proactive monitoring, control, and support—allow for smarter use of energy consumption, room booking functionality, and device management. They are each quick to deploy and underpinned by Ricoh’s extensive network of service engineers.
