Ricoh Joins the Digital Boost Alliance


Driving digital transformation across New Zealand


Ricoh New Zealand is proud to announce our partnership with Digital Boost Alliance, an initiative by the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment to help New Zealand businesses create a better future using digital tools and technology.

Digital Boost aims to provide kiwi businesses, especially small to medium sized enterprises, better access to technology, expert advice, support and services, so that the community can have what they need to live, work and thrive in a sustainable, and resilient, digital world.

There are currently over 37,000 members accessing the benefits of online learning resources via Digital Boost. Ricoh has joined alongside well know global technology providers like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, HP, Spark, Datacom and others, to help raise Aotearoa’s digital capability and confidence.

“As an organisation driven by innovation and imagination, Ricoh New Zealand has been helping kiwi companies with their business technology for nearly five decades. Digital Boost Alliance is an organic extension of this, and we are excited to be able to support more businesses to securely embrace and accelerate their digital growth, enhance their efficiency and enable digital inclusion in the wider community,”
