Tokyo – February 2, 2009 - Ricoh Company, Ltd (President & CEO: Shiro Kondo) today announced that it will participate in the SAP® Printer Vendor program as a gold-level member.
Through the SAP Printer Vendor program, SAP AG is collaborating with Ricoh and other leading printer manufacturers to develop and deliver high-quality printing solutions that will lead to broader support of printer models in SAP business software applications. The program offers participating vendors, now including Ricoh, access to specific SAP development environments necessary to optimize support for their devices when operating in SAP solution-based environments.
