Case Study Problem

Ricoh has over 2600 employees in the UK, including 1,200 field based employees, covering the whole of the UK. Often working alone, in remote areas, the company needs to be able to maintain two-way contact with them, and also needs to be able to maintain critical communication with office based staff. Ricoh needed a solution that ensures it knows how to keep in touch, and for recipients to confirm receipt of messages.
