New InfoPrint Solutions program well received by NA Solutions Partner Resellers

Press release from the issuing company

Boulder, CO - InfoPrint Solutions Company, a Ricoh company, today announced that its newly launched Solutions Partners incentive plan has achieved encouraging feedback from program participants in less than six months.  In operation since early 2010, this program has garnered increased participation from members, established more frequent and interactive education sessions and opened more doors to communication between InfoPrint Solutions and its valued Solutions Partners.  The company also announced today a broader array of educational initiatives including InfoPrint University and its latest upcoming Solutions Partner Conference to be held in Boulder, Colorado from September 27-30.

Earlier this year, InfoPrint Solutions unveiled an enhanced Solutions Partner program structure which included three levels of participation: Solutions Partner, Solutions Specialist Partner and the newly added Solutions Specialist Premier Partner.  The Premier Partner level brings increased earning opportunities for qualifying products across InfoPrint Solutions' portfolio, including a strategic focus on cutsheet printers and software.  The company also launched a new online portal for Solutions Partners where they can easily and quickly find the latest information and tools required to recommend the right InfoPrint Solutions offering to their customers.

"The enhancements InfoPrint Solutions has made to its Solutions Partner program could not have been more well-received internally at Sirius," said Rick Bailer, senior vice president of sales for Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc.  "We have found our relationship with InfoPrint Solutions to be a huge value-add to our business for many years, even dating back to days prior to its joint venture status.  We're looking forward to future successes working with InfoPrint Solutions as a Ricoh company."

Other key enhancements and benefits to the Solutions Partner program include:

- InfoPrint University – Education courses, available online or on-site at InfoPrint Solutions' Boulder campus, enable more open, two-way communication between the company and its Solutions Partners.  Solutions Partners now have the ability to take classes, more easily access specific sales-related information to hardware and solutions and interact with other Solutions Partners to share insight and experiences
- Solutions Partner Conference – A key premiere event for the InfoPrint Solutions Partner program which allows participants to attend hands-on sessions at the company's headquarters including interactive discussions, hardware and solutions tutorials and feedback sessions where Solutions Partners can update InfoPrint Solutions executives on their experiences in the field
- The Power of Two – InfoPrint Solutions' recent transition to a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh offers Solutions Partners expanded access and insight into the companies' extensive record of innovation and technically-superior solutions extending from the office to higher end production environments

"Simply put, the feedback we've received this year from our Solutions Partners has been phenomenal.  It clearly validates the steps we have taken to enhance our program and further engage our Solutions Partners have been a success," said Dan Boe, vice president and general manager of General Office Solutions, InfoPrint Solutions.  "As a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh, InfoPrint Solutions will continue to differentiate itself from the competition with our unique solutions approach.  We're working hard to make sure our Solutions Partners experience the benefits our enhanced program can deliver."
