"Today's workplaces are incredibly varied, but they all have one thing in common: a focus on productivity," said John Brophy, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh USA, Inc. "At Ricoh, our services-led approach means adapting our recommendations to our customers' unique environments. This series helps us do that by providing incredible flexibility and capabilities in a small, affordable package. Built-in finishing options, multiple affordable price points and the incredible possibilities and capabilities of the Smart Operation Panel make these devices a great fit for a wide variety of environments across multiple verticals, including higher education, which boasts its own specialized models."
With the new 40, 50 and 60 ppm versions, users are now empowered to easily make booklets, tri-fold brochures and pamphlets by leveraging the new inner folder option built directly into the device, helping to minimize the overall footprint. The series also offers an optional hybrid finisher for automatic stapleless stapling of documents with multiple pages. Standard PostScript emulation enables large, complex files to be printed more effortlessly and efficiently than before. The devices' built-in efficiency and reliability helps minimize total cost of ownership (TCO) and maximize system availability, making them a solid investment for small businesses and enterprises.
Mobile access is easier than ever on this new Ricoh series, thanks to a simple download of the RICOH Smart Device Connector app to Android® or iOS® devices. This proven application enables users to share information and print without printer setup configurations or utilities. Information can be accessed directly from cloud storage applications, such as Google Drive™, Box™ or Dropbox™, and printed directly from the app. The latest version of the RICOH Smart Device Connector also allows for users to print emails and attachments. Originals can be scanned at the MFP and sent to a personal device or directly to cloud storage, so users can access or distribute them digitally at their convenience. Printing from AirPrint® and Mopria is also supported, and Android and iOS devices can connect with the MFP via Bluetooth (BLE). Additionally, Android devices can connect via NFC.
Along with flexibility and collaborative power, this series provides an environmentally sustainable choice for workplaces of many sizes and types, with ENERGY STAR® certification and an EPEAT® Gold rating. Users can also set print quotas for individuals or workgroups to minimize unnecessary printing.
While this new series is well suited for applications across many different industries, Ricoh has also added MFP for Education versions to its portfolio. These address the unique needs of the education market by providing features that secure the device for use in common and unsupervised areas. The RICOH MFP for Education models include built-in Locking Paper Trays and a bypass tray seal to prevent users from tampering or using non-standard paper stocks. It also provides an optional fixed bracket to secure keyboards and card readers, along with optional Cloud for Education package integration to help facilitate collaboration in and out of the classroom.
