    7. 7. ECM ROI Expectations IT Tech is the foundation for building business outcomes IT Solution Expectations: ‣ Reduction of personnel hours required to complete a process or generate income ‣ Minimize time required to deliver a product or generate revenue ‣ Reduction in variable costs or duplication of tasks associated with completing a process or generating profit ‣ Unique ROI Found in ECM o Bundled functionality―including capture and workflow―extends workflow to the point of content creation o Choice of interface allows information to be presented in the proper context for all participants in any particular process o Integration capabilities built into the workflow automation system eliminates redundant data entry, automates decisions and keeps multiple systems synchronized
    8. 8. Options in Market ‣ Point solutions ‣ Changing times: „Everything‟ as a Service ‣ ECM innovation • Integrating technologies into services that meet business user needs • Building scalable processes for provisioning and support • Short route to enterprise productivity & profitability • Package functionality: workflow - simplified • Innovation in a credible way
    9. 9. Market Validation
    10. 10. Opportunity to Use What We Sell • Employee Expense Process  Big Hit opportunity: o Touches 50% of Org. Headcount o Employee Sat & cash flow reliant o Highly paper based, labor intensive – archaic ‣ Process automation “internal consulting” ‣ Going to market for a BPO services solution… or “eat what we cook!” ‣ Capitalizing on the experience and tools currently available in the Ricoh portfolio
    11. 11. Case Study Ricoh Employee Expense System
