Oslo, Norway, 29th April, 2016 – Videxio, a leading cloud video service provider, today announced that it has signed a global agreement with Ricoh. Ricoh will offer the Videxio service as RICOH Unified Communication System Advanced (hereafter “UCS Advanced”). The launch of UCS Advanced initially in Europe is Ricoh’s response to the growing demand from European organisations for easy to use, cost-effective video collaboration solutions. UCS Advanced makes it possible for customers to integrate existing video and audio environments, letting them make the most of their current investments.

UCS Advanced, powered by Videxio, means organisations no longer have to invest in video infrastructure, but pay a monthly subscription according to use. Intelligent tools make start-up easy and everyone can be online within a couple of minutes. The service supports a range of videoconferencing systems from different manufacturers meaning that users can videoconference on the device of their choice, such as a computer, tablet or smartphone, as well as a range of protocols including browser based videoconferencing and Skype for Business.

"Thanks to UCS Advanced, powered by Videxio, we are able to help organisations optimise their primary business goals and solve the associated internal and external communication issues. We chose Videxio as the platform since their global reach and innovative development power mean that we are able to offer a high quality, leading edge solution to our customers," said Shogo Hyakutake, Corporate Associate Vice President, Ricoh Company, Ltd.

According to Tom-Erik Lia, CEO of Videxio, "We are delighted to be partnering with Ricoh. Ricoh’s focus on helping organisations increase productivity makes Ricoh and Videxio a perfect match.
