Open Text and Ricoh Offer Integration

Mar 21, 2003


Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink, collaboration and knowledge management software for the enterprise, and Ricoh Corporation, the Dependable Digital output company, have announced an integration that will link a company's knowledge repository in Livelink to Ricoh devices across an enterprise. The solution is designed to improve knowledge sharing and information access for customers, and provide another way companies can feed information in to their knowledge management systems. As part of their efforts to offer the software integration, the companies also announced that Ricoh, and subsidiaries Lanier, Savin, and Gestetner, have joined Open Text's Affinity Partner Program. The integration between Ricoh's Global Scan software and Livelink will allow users to navigate information in a Livelink knowledge repository via a touch screen on Ricoh Multifunction Products, which print, scan, copy, and fax documents. Users will be able to send documents from the Livelink repository to a networked Ricoh device for printing, copying, or fax. They will also be able to scan documents from the Ricoh device into the Livelink repository.
