Ricoh has been shortlisted in three categories, “Best Cloud Hosting Provider,” “Best Cloud Consultancy or MSP,” and “Best Cloud Infrastructure.”
“It’s an honor to be a finalist in three categories of the Cloud Awards,” said Bob Lamendola, Vice President, Infrastructure and Engineering Services, Ricoh USA, Inc. “Our customers’ needs have been a driving factor in our ability to support them as they move forward on their cloud journey. Ricoh has adopted an innovative strategy for cloud infrastructure services that embraces flexibility and creativity, and we strive to provide leading cloud technology to help our customers tackle obstacles and meet the challenges of today’s IT environment.”

“This year has been one unlike any other, posing uniquely non-trivial challenges across every sector of industry. As we have seen across so many of this year’s awards entries, the cloud has been pivotal in increasing organizational efficiency to meet demands both anticipated and unforeseen.
“From call centers to online shopping carts, cloud technologies have been the grease that keeps the global wheel of industry turning. They have been at the center of considerable behavioral change and new, innovative ways of working.
