Ricoh Americas Corporation (Ricoh) is a provider of document solutions, including digital imaging systems, fax machines, printers, scanners and data storage. Ricoh wanted a solution to automate service calls handled by field service technicians.

Hospitals produce 50 petabytes of data per year.1 A staggering 90 percent of that
is medical imaging, and 50 percent of medical imaging data is from X-ray scanners.2
This is a flood of data for radiology departments, resulting in potentially long
turn-around-time (TAT)—even when the scan is considered stat. In critical
conditions, such as pneumothorax, escalation of interpretation is essential
to accelerate treatment.
