WEST CALDWELL, N.J., March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions, today announced that IKON Office Solutions, a Ricoh company, was voted the best document management service provider by the readers of three major law journals. IKON placed first in The New York Law Journal's first annual rankings survey, first in The Connecticut Law Tribune's sixth annual readers poll, and in California, first place in The Recorder's fourth annual The Best issue. IKON was also voted one of the top office equipment suppliers by readers of the Legal Intelligencer in Philadelphia.

"We are delighted to receive these awards from the readership of such prestigious publications.  They are a testament to our ability to provide law firms and legal departments with the right solutions to solve their document challenges," said Mark Davey, Vice President, Legal Enterprise Solutions for IKON. "We are proud to provide document management services to a very large number of legal organizations, including 90 percent of the Am Law 200 law firms and many of the Fortune 1000 Corporate Counsel."

This year, thousands of readers cast votes across the four publications. The voting was conducted via online ballots compiled by the publications. Readers were notified of the ballot through direct emails and online advertisements linking to the ballot across ALM's network of websites. Each ballot consisted of approximately 40 categories encompassing areas such as Technology, Research, Accounting, Insurance, Financial Services, Litigation Support, Education, Recruiting and Staffing. Once voting was completed, the ballot was scrubbed of all non-eligible, non-end-user votes. The final totals and rankings reflect only the votes cast by legitimate end-users.

These polls are not meant to be scientific surveys of marketplace size or sales, but rather measures of the loyalty and satisfaction readers have with vendors. "The surveys were conducted by legal industry publications belonging to the ALM media group. They were designed to give a voice to our legal communities, enabling them to say which vendors are best to work with," said Steve Lincoln, Publisher, New York Law Journal.
