EMC Named Ricoh’s Strategic Alliance Partner of the Year


Company Recognized for Highest Revenue Contribution, Integration of Captiva Solutions

Hopkinton, Mass.-Tuesday, June 27, 2006, EMC Corporation, the world leader in information management and storage, today announced that it has been awarded “Strategic Alliance Partner of the Year” by Ricoh Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and multifunction products (MFPs). The award recognizes EMC for being Ricoh’s top revenue-contributing software vendor partner, as well as for integrating EMC Captiva InputAccel® document capture software with Ricoh’s GlobalScan 2.0 enterprise document scanning and routing solution, providing customers with instant access to accurate data across a distributed environment.

“We’re pleased to recognize EMC as our premier input management partner with this award,” said Hidetsugu Nonaka, Senior Vice President of Document Solutions and Services Division at Ricoh. “Our strong integration with the Captiva software solutions has brought best-practice input management functionality to our MFP product line, offering our joint customers the ability to quickly and easily share documents throughout a globally distributed environment and streamline business information workflow.”

“We’re delighted to be acknowledged by Ricoh with this award for our long-standing relationship and our contributions to their growth,” said Wayne Ford, Vice President, Captiva Strategic Alliances and Channel Development, EMC Software Group. “The ability to automate the capture and distribution of documents directly from an MFP speeds business processes, minimizes manual intervention and reduces overhead costs by eliminating document shipping charges as well as the need to purchase dedicated scanners for remote sites.”

Integrating InputAccel with GlobalScan 2.0 lets organizations use InputAccel’s document capture capabilities to distribute scanned documents automatically across a network – directly from the operation panel on an MFP device. With InputAccel with GlobalScan 2.0, users can route documents scanned on an MFP directly to InputAccel for image cleanup, indexing, classification, data extraction, validation and delivery of the right content format and metadata into a data repository.
