“Ricoh is committed to offering its partners a first class channel programme, tailored to needs of its customers. We understand that different partners have different requirements and that’s why our Reseller Partner Programme offers a broad range of options to help our partners get the best deal,” said Sarah Sweet, Indirect Channel Marketing Manager, Ricoh UK.
