New Ricoh color MFP series delivers revolutionary Workstyle Innovation Technology to seamlessly support today’s business needs

Innovative devices help enterprises and small to medium businesses customize workflows to simplify information flow

MALVERN, PA, June 14, 2016 – Ricoh today unveiled its latest color multifunction printer (MFP) series to help workers at small to medium businesses and enterprises improve productivity, save time and accomplish more. The RICOH MP C3004/MP C3504/MP C4504/MP C6004 color MFP series brings new levels of digital workflow automation to the workplace and empowers users to customize how they share information in today’s new world of work. It provides users with the ability to use the same actions they use every day on their smartphones and tablets – including pinching, flicking and swiping – to quickly transition from one job to the next with ease.

As today’s workstyles continue to change, the need for innovative technologies has increased. This is why Ricoh has brought Workstyle Innovation Technology, the next generation of office automation, to the forefront of its portfolio. Today, employees are accustomed to sharing and receiving information how they want to, when they want to, without delay. The RICOH MP C3004/MP C3504/MP C4504/MP C6004 series utilizes the building blocks of Workstyle Innovation Technology to efficiently enable this information flow with speed and convenience thanks to its new 10.1” Wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel. This next-generation platform empowers users to create one-touch shortcuts to automate manual tasks, place customized information-rich widgets on the control panel and access details quickly and intuitively with a single glance.

“In our fast-paced work environments, the need to capture, transform and manage information more quickly, especially for mobile workers, is increasingly important,” said John Brophy, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh USA, Inc. “This is precisely why we implemented new and intuitive features – to help simplify a customer’s workday, to help overcome their business challenges and to help streamline business. Moreover, this newest MFP series utilizes advanced technologies that deliver greener operations, accomplishing a full range of document-related tasks without compromising the environment or the bottom line. This effort is consistent with Ricoh’s goals of developing products for a more sustainable future, as recognized by the highly coveted 2016 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award.”

The RICOH MP C3004/MP C3504/MP C4504/MP C6004 series increases productivity while saving energy. An integrated, innovative motion sensor detects an approaching user by sensing differences in temperature versus the surrounding environment, activating key operations. This enables the device to recover from sleep mode in approximately one second, providing fast access to Smart Operation Panel functions. It also utilizes Ricoh’s Smart Device Connector app that enables workers to seamlessly integrate with mobile devices and share information between other Ricoh devices, such as interactive whiteboards and projectors. Additionally, the series comes equipped with advanced administrative controls to limit outputs for specific users or workgroups, along with user authentication controls to prevent unauthorized access and help ensure only the intended recipient receives the document.
