Good for the environment and your budget.
Businesses are often looking for ways to reduce spending, especially during times of economic uncertainty. When it comes to necessities, how can they save money while not sacrificing efficiency and technology?
Businesses have been hesitant to invest in refurbished products simply because they believe that they are lower quality, have a shorter lifespan, and aren’t as good as the new thing. Ricoh has developed a line of certified, remanufactured products that have been fully restored, updated, and tested for a new lifecycle of consumer use. The Ricoh GreenLine is ensured to deliver reliable performance you can count on, and is a smart choice for organizations looking to invest in an MFP without incurring the costs of a new device, and it provides a wider range of price points, based on your budget and your needs.
Just like a certified pre-owned vehicle from a luxury car brand, certified refurbished Ricoh GreenLine products are high-quality, and have the same performance you’d expect from a brand new device.
Why Ricoh GreenLine?
How do MFPs get to be GreenLine?
A team of highly-skilled Ricoh engineers carry out every stage in the remanufacturing process, form initial inspection prior to refurbishing, to the installation of up-to-date firmware and the cleaning of internal hard drives. The end result is that you get high-quality systems at a fraction of the cost of new models, all while promoting sustainability.
It’s a cost-efficient, eco-friendly solution that contributes to everyone’s bottom line without sacrificing quality or service.
Ricoh’s GreenLine allows for reliable output at a low cost per page by addressing every last detail to ensure they work just like new.
