Ricoh is delighted to announce that it has won the prestigious Direct Commerce Award for its outstanding services in the Customer Experience category.

Glenn Griggs, CEO of Ricoh UK, commented: "I am thrilled to see Ricoh has been recognised for the value we continue to deliver for our customers.”  He added: “We pride ourselves on our proactive, personalised approach to helping organisations address their challenges. Our strategic investment in DocuWare in 2019 is a great example of how we work with the leading players in the technology sector to provide integrated solutions for our customers and supporting them in their pursuit of long-term and sustainable growth.”

Glenn Griggs continued: "I would like to thank our customer success team for their hard work and dedication in delivering excellent experience and value to our customers day in, day out."

By talking to customers, Ricoh noticed a trend – businesses tend to invest in software solutions based on the specific business challenge, which can later prove inadequate as their needs have shifted. This results in underutilisation, inefficiencies, and threats to growth. To overcome this, Ricoh established a ‘Client Success’ team to prioritise customer success through exceptional after-sales service, free consultancy, and the right level of support. By adopting a customer-centric approach, Ricoh has been able to demonstrate added value to customers. 

Ricoh's transition from ‘reactive’ to ‘productive’ customer support models has steadily improved retention and conversion rates from 90.5% in 2021 to 99% in 2023, with its commitment to enhancing its strategies by using customer satisfaction surveys, strategic assessments, and best practices from worldwide markets.

The Direct Commerce Awards 2023 were presented on the evening of 17 October 2023 at Millennium Hotel, Gloucester Rd, London SW5.
