Ricoh has announced the launch of a new series of A4 colour Intelligent Devices to meet the ever-evolving needs of digital workplaces. The range is part of Ricoh’s Dynamic Workplace Intelligence approach and features Ricoh’s Always Current Technology, ensuring the technical capabilities of products evolve in parallel with customer requirements.
The Always Current Technology platform empowers people to work smarter via technologies that deliver scalability, security, sustainability and simplicity. Users can download and install new applications, features and upgrades directly to their device as they become available, providing complete agility and flexibility. The platform empowers digital workplaces to scale their capabilities based on their latest needs, while also keeping security features and software completely up to date. It enables instant access to upgrades the moment they hit the market, eliminating the need to purchase new hardware for additional functionality or wait for contracts to expire. Furthermore, RICOH Intelligent Support ensures software upgrades can be quickly performed remotely and that user uptime is maximised.
The four new A4 colour intelligent MFPs available in Europe include the RICOH IM C300, IM C300F, IM C400F and IM C400SRF. These devices print at speeds of 30-43 pages per minute (ppm). Each model has printing, scanning and copying functionality, while the IM C400SRF also offers finishing capability.
Olivier Vriesendorp, Vice President of Product Marketing, Ricoh Europe said, “businesses of all sizes are tasked with adapting to change and handling information at an unpreceded rate. For over 80 years, we’ve supported customers with their transformation and developed solutions to meet their specific emerging needs. These new Intelligent Devices enable our customers to install any applications they like at any time – enabling them to work smarter and more effectively.”
The new devices incorporate Ricoh’s new Smart Operation Panel, equipped with an upgraded processor that provides faster transitions between applications and a smooth, responsive touch screen. Ricoh service experts can remotely access a device’s Smart Operation Panel for fast troubleshooting and perform automatic firmware updates.
