TORONTO, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


Ricoh, a global technology company with services and solutions that help law firms and legal departments capture, transform and manage information more effectively in today's dynamic work environment, and mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc., a Ricoh company and leading provider of managed IT, cloud, data center and professional services, will exhibit at the 2014 ALA (Association of Legal Administrators) Annual Conference & Exposition.

As a result of Ricoh's February 2014 acquisition of mindSHIFT, attendees will benefit as the companies' combined solutions can now address a broader spectrum of IT and document services needs of law firms and in-house counsel, leaving them to focus on their law practices. Ricoh and mindSHIFT each have deep experience in the legal market and their customers include the majority of the Am Law 200 and NLJ 350 firms, boutique firms, as well as the legal departments of many Fortune 1000 companies.


Educational Session – Where Did the Money Go? Uncover Real Savings by Managing Your Firm's Document Output

Presented by: Peter James, CCMP, ECMs, Director, Legal Technology and
Mark Moore, Esq., National Program Manager, Enterprise Solutions, Ricoh Americas Corporation.

With today's rising overhead expenses, firms must find effective ways to reduce costs while addressing how to make information within their companies more accessible based on how people work in today's changing workplace. Documents drive business processes with approximately 3% of a firm's annual revenue consumed by document production; and this expense is growing. A Managed Print Services (MPS) strategy enables firms to optimize and manage document output efficiently. To complement this strategy, additional savings can be achieved by converting printing workflows to electronic and leveraging your Document Management System to eliminate paper records.

Additionally, Ricoh and mindSHIFT will demonstrate their legal solutions and services at each of their respective booths.

Ricoh (booth #822) will demonstrate its comprehensive portfolio of Digital Imaging Services including: Advanced Imaging and Cost Recovery; Data Forensic Solutions; Mobile Worker Services; and Universal Print Drivers.

mindSHIFT (booth #729) will demonstrate its Total IT Management for Law Firms solution, designed for law firms who want to eliminate the burden and distraction of maintaining their own IT infrastructure. With this solution, mindSHIFT hosts, manages, maintains and supports a law firm's network, servers, desktops and applications for one predictable monthly fee.
