Manufacturer Needs Five Slide Libraries, One Per Brand

Client Case Study: Ricoh USA

Ricoh USA is a major office technology manufacturing, service, and software company with 5 global Brands. Over 2,500 users and administrators use Epoch® Slide to access one or more brand library channel(s) to build custom sales presentations. All five channels can be managed by a single administrator based on role, permission and group credentials.

Existing System Replaced

The existing custom slide management system was developed in ColdFusion as an in-house project. The system was limited to a single slide upload at a time that proved to be very time costly. It also used old file system methodology to view thumbnails and had no drag & drop ease of use. It was in operation for 18 months and replaced by Epoch® Slide SaaS solution and support.

Our high degree of Q&A has developed a stable product that delivers consistent performance and ease of use resulting in less than ten help tickets per year. Most of the support is for updating their Flash player.





Programatically Import 3,000 Slides

Web Epoch was able to electronically convert the folder structure with approximately 3,000 PPT slides from the client’s existing library to the Epoch® Slide with an intelligent PowerPoint Slide Library.

This was a huge saving when compared to the time needed to recreate the entire library from scratch.

Once the library was created in Epoch® Slide™ our client was able to edit the folder tree as needed to re-organize the new library.

Epoch® Slide provides a cohesive platform to make available to thousands of busy marketing and business development executives on a monthly basis.

Over 60,000 slides were downloaded in 1st year by users. In the 2nd year 85,000 slides downloaded by average 1500 users/mo.
