MALVERN, Pa., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation today announced the MP 2501SP, a productive, economical 25 ppm monochrome multifunction product (MFP) designed to meet the diverse needs of small workgroups.

The MP 2501SP copies and prints documents up to 11x17 inches, scans in color, and offers optional faxing and advanced security features. It extends Ricoh's advanced technology platform – including mobile worker support, cloud connectivity and sustainability features – to the most economical end of its product line.

"The MP 2501SP handles the steady printing and copying work you expect while also serving as a high-powered information portal, whether by itself or as part of a fleet," said Dominic Pontrelli, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Built on our next-generation MFP platform, it's engineered specifically to address businesses' emerging challenges in information workflow – input, processing and output."

For example, workers and authorized guests can scan to and print from their mobile devices' SD cards or their USB thumb drives. They can use Ricoh's new advanced technology platform services to implement a wide range of solutions for document capture, management, storage, processing (e.g., OCR), printing, sharing, customer relationship management and more. The MP 2501SP's sustainability features include ENERGY STAR® accreditation, automatic duplexing, optional quota setting and an eco-friendly indicator that encourages users to reduce paper consumption.

Organizations can easily customize workflows through the 4.3-inch color tilting touchscreen panel, with each user able to program up to 72 icons. With the optional hard disk drive (HDD), the MP 2501SP can store up to 3,000 electronic documents for convenient use. For financial institutions, health care providers and other organizations requiring advanced security, the MP 2501SP offers optional password-protected and user-specific authentication to help prevent unauthorized access to key documents and ensure system privileges.

For example, print jobs can be stored on the device until users swipe an ID card or enter ID information at the control panel to release them. Unauthorized Copy Control helps prevent fraudulent duplication of sensitive documents by embedding a pattern or message that becomes visible when copied. The DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) destroys latent images stored on the internal HDD. For even greater security, AES 256-bit/SHA-2 enhanced encryption is included for advanced protection of critical data.

The MP 2501SP is easy to manage as part of a fleet. Administrators can customize the color touchscreen with a company logo and program icons for specific functions and applications. They can register user codes, set user quotas, run usage reports, configure devices centrally and apply common settings across multiple devices of the same model for simplified fleet management.

The MP 2501SP is available now for a suggested retail price of $5,000 (USD). Some features may require additional options. For details on Ricoh's full line of products, services and solutions, please visit
