New Ricoh Black & White MFPs Support Emerging Workstyles

Malvern, PA, March 10, 2015 - Ricoh today unveiled three new black and white multifunction products (MFPs) for small offices and workgroups whose employees are determined to improve their information mobility in this new world of work.
In addition to streamlining 11” x 17” printing, scanning, copying and optional faxing, the new
RICOH MP 4054/MP 5054/MP 6054 Series enables easy document printing from mobile devices, cloud-based document management, and promotes cost reduction through energy efficiency.
The new MFPs, which print at 40, 50 and 60 pages per minute respectively, offer up to 1,200 dpi in a space-saving eco-friendly design. A standard 220-sheet Single Pass Document Feeder (SPDF) scans up to 180 color or black-and-white images per minute from paper documents, optionally creating text-searchable PDF files through optical character recognition (OCR).
“MFPs are an integral part of the enterprise, and these devices are in the forefront,” said Matt Sakauchi, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “These MFPs are designed to help organizations achieve new levels of information mobility by placing important business information in the right workers’ hands at the right time while accommodating their evolving workstyles.”
A classic example of evolving workstyles is mobile computing. The RICOH MP 4054/MP 5054/MP 6054 Series enables workers to use the new Ricoh Smart Device Connector app (available for iOS or Android) to copy, print, scan and fax directly from their smart device. They simply touch their smart device to the NFC tag on the MFPs’ optional Smart Operation Panel or scan the QR Code to automatically connect to the MFPs to access these functions.
The MFPs’ optional Smart Operation Panel offers users a tablet-like drag-and-drop, pinch-flick-and-swipe navigation experience on a 10.1-inch Super VGA display. The interface includes an advanced Web browser enabling connection to Ricoh’s Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE).
The series’ energy-efficient engineering softens its environmental impact, earning the platform ENERGY STAR and EPEAT Gold certification. The optional Smart Operation Panel includes an eco-friendly indicator to warn of excessive paper usage. A range of authentication options, including card authentication and PIN code, help ensure information gets to the right people. The new MFPs include a wide variety of finishing options, including a 500-sheet internal finisher for the MP 4054 and MP 5054.
The RICOH MP 4054 and RICOH MP 5054 replace the RICOH MP 4002 and RICOH MP 5002 Series. The RICOH MP 6054 is a net-new 60 pages-per-minute model.
The MFPs are available now at an MSRP of $12,250 for the RICOH MP 4054, $14,725 for the RICOH MP 5054, and $18,925 for the RICOH MP 6054.
