Girl Scouts Of Wisconsin Southeast Focus On Growth With Richoh Pro G900
West Caldwell, NJ (Nov. 2009) – The Production Printing Business Group (PPBG) of Ricoh Americas Corporation today announced that the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, which serves more than 28,500 scouts in more than four counties, installed the RICOH Pro C900 in the print shop located at the organization’s base in Milwaukee to help improve the Girl Scouts’ image through high-quality communications materials.
When the print shop was established several years ago, it featured a small offset press. Later, the shop went digital and purchased a Ricoh black-and-white production copier along with a small Ricoh color printer. Faced with exploding growth of both membership and staff, the print shop had to outsource nearly all color printing. However, increased cost in outsourcing all color projects led the organization to the decision to bring all printing, including color materials, in-house which required an equipment upgrade. The Girl Scouts looked at several brands, but the organization’s long-standing relationship with Ricoh, combined with the advanced capabilities of the RICOH Pro C900 made Ricoh the natural choice.
“The RICOH Pro C900 is the right fit for us. It is affordable, the color is true and the customer service is excellent,” said Amy Drezka, director of information services for the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast. “In spite of coming from a very small environment, quickly moving into a larger organization, and having to meet new high-capacity needs for production, we were able to do it easily with this machine, which for us, has been huge.”
Almost immediately after the RICOH Pro C900 was installed, the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast realized cost savings, improved their color output quality and increased their productivity. Taking advantage of the Pro C900’s ability to print at 90 pages per minute (ppm), the Girl Scouts are now quickly turning around a variety of items with runs from 50 to 20,000 including membership certificates, training materials and solicitation letters.
“The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast is a great example of customers who are experiencing growth, and require solutions that not only accommodate present conditions but can anticipate future needs,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing, PPBG, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “The RICOH Pro C900 is one of many solutions we offer to our customers that maximize output and increases quality.”
