Collaboration Spaces

Ricoh’s Collaboration Spaces are personalised collaborative working environments, enabling universities to offer a relaxed setting for group study. Designed to appeal to both students and staff, each space can be customised to suit the specific needs of a university or faculty.

Each Collaboration Space offers a wide range of copy, print, scan and finishing services, accessible from any mobile device to allow students and staff to work and print from their own smartphones and tablets. 

More than a traditional print room or copy centre, a Collaboration Space can be configured to offer meeting areas and group working zones, incorporating a selection of Ricoh technology, including Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs), projectors and IT facilities, as well as a café and vending machines.

Your university Collaboration Space can be managed by on-site Ricoh employees who oversee the running and maintenance of the equipment, with no additional strain on your existing IT staff. These Collaboration Spaces also provide part-time employment opportunities for students, helping them to develop many of the practical, business skills desired by future employers.
