Ricoh Malaysia and HELP University College set up the first“InnoTech Centre” in Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia, 4 December 2008 – Ricoh, a leading document solutions provider,
announced a significant partnership with HELP University College to jointly develop
a one-stop printing centre called the “InnoTech Centre” at the latter’s Bukit
Damansara campus in Kuala Lumpur.
The centre is poised to become an “incubator” centre for digital office technology and
a one-stop print centre that serves the needs of HELP students as well as the
surrounding business community. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was inked
between Ricoh (M) Sdn Bhd’s Managing Director Lim Eng Weng and HELP
University College’s President Datuk Dr. Paul Chan at an official signing ceremony
held at HELP’s Pusat Bandar Damansara auditorium.
“The creation of InnoTech Centre is borne out of both organizations’ commitment to
create excellence and harness synergy in our respective fields. Effective use of digital
office technology will enhance the delivery process of education and improve
learning. In addition, undergraduates will be well exposed to the latest digital print
technology and solutions before they join the workforce,” said Lim Eng Weng,
Managing Director of Ricoh Malaysia.
The new state-of-the-art InnoTech Centre, scheduled for completion in the first
quarter of 2009 at an estimated cost of approximately RM1 million, will provide all
HELP students a modern “print lounge” facility that showcases Ricoh’s cutting-edge
digital office technologies and document management solutions. The centre is also
expected to provide “on demand” printing and document creation and management
services to the surrounding business and neighbourhood community.
Meanwhile, the HELP Group will also be using Ricoh’s printing solutions in all its
campuses, especially at the Subang 2 Green Technology Campus. The new printing
technology from Ricoh, which is environmentally friendly, will enhance efficiency
and productivity at HELP as it is wireless and accessible from everywhere.
This collaboration will also cut costs for the HELP Group by approximately
RM20,000 a month. This is significant in view of the present recession and high
energy cost. HELP is committed to playing a part in ensuring that resources are used
efficiently and with care.
More importantly, the collaboration provides the HELP Group in rationalising their
management using state-of-the-art management techniques of Ricoh.
“HELP is very excited to be working with Ricoh on this project. We will also be
conducting various training programmes with Ricoh to teach the public different
printing technologies and Information Security Management System (ISMS)
programmes,” said Datuk Dr. Paul Chan, President and co-Founder of HELP
University College. “These InnoTech Centres are part of the diversification strategy
for both HELP and Ricoh to offer something unique to the public and to seek revenue
from different areas. By utilizing Ricoh’s advanced printing technology, it will also be
an incubator for innovation and entrepreneurial activities especially related to
Both organizations hailed the “InnoTech Centre” as a start of a new level of
collaboration and partnership.
