11 November 2022, Shah Alam – Ricoh Malaysia today unveiled its exclusive Smart and Hybrid Workplace in Shah Alam, Selangor based on the ‘green objectives’ aim of implementing environmental best practices in the workplace.

Ricoh’s newly introduced workplace concept integrates ESG (environmental, social, and governance) goals to support a “climate safe future,” as well nurture and encourage an office digital culture that embeds sustainability.

Ms. Alice Lee & Mr. Joji Tokunaga showed the modular office arrangement that features hot desks and scalable furniture layouts that can be moved around for better utilization of space.

RICOH has a solid international reputation for providing cutting-edge information management and digital technology. The modern digital approach aims to reduce operating costs for prospective clients, while increasing organisational revenue.

Digital transformation is about people, not just technology. “Enabling employee engagement via creativity generates data-driven insights, greater internal communication, and increased productivity and profitability,” said Ms Alice Lee, managing director of Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, during her opening remarks.

Ricoh’s cutting-edge technological design enables its hybrid workforce, user-friendly solutions for a seamless workflow, and resilient IT infrastructures with cyber-attack prevention capabilities.

RICOH is on a journey to assist businesses and organisations in making the transition to this new future, with a focus on digitization and digitalization. Because it enables information to mix and be processed with the same efficiency, digitization is crucial for data processing, storage, and transmission. Data may now be shared and retrieved, propagated without loss, and moved to new formats as needed thanks to digitization.

The security and secrecy of a document are improved by digitization. Only specific users can access papers if necessary because scanned documents can be tracked. Paper dissolves every time it is touched manually, hence information recorded on it is a degradable kind of information.

Businesses can generate organisational change, develop new business models, and unlock new value from data that has been pooled through digitization with the use of automation and digital technologies.

“Our ‘Fulfillment through Work’ vision is guided by Ricoh’s three principles: loyalty to people, patriotism, and a love of work. Ricoh Malaysia welcomes and looks forward to collaborating with key partners, clients, and investors to transform existing conventional workplaces into smart and hybrid environments towards a complete digital transformation”, Lee concluded.

Muhammad Azmi Zulkifli, Chief Executive Officer of InvestKL said: “Companies are aware of the importance of greening practices and the benefit it brings from an economic and environmental standpoint. I am pleased to learn that leading companies such as Ricoh are paving the way in creating a smart, sustainable, and holistic workspace right here in Greater KL. Greater KL offers ample greening opportunities and is indeed an ideal location for companies to realise their sustainability goals and ESG agenda. Congratulations and we look forward to facilitating Ricoh’s continued investment in Malaysia and regionally”.

It has become a critical component of Ricoh’s corporate strategy to reduce carbon emissions by 63 percent by 2030 and achieve carbon neutral by 2050. These assertions are supported by the technology that the corporation is now prioritising.
