Ricoh Introduces New Technology
Ricoh Americas Corporation, a provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions and services, announced the launch of Ricoh HotSpot technology for Ricoh Multifunction Printers (MFPs).
Ricoh HotSpot MFPs offer mobile users the added convenience of printing remotely, making HotSpot a viable solution for business travelers, sales reps, educational facilities, medical offices and others who require access to important files while on the go.
Providing a hard-copy output solution for laptops, handheld devices and Web- enabled smartphones, HotSpot MFPs enable users to print securely across the Internet, without the need for a device-specific driver or special software. Mobile printing solutions for the Ricoh HotSpot MFPs are powered by PrinterOn.
Ricoh HotSpot MFPs offer users fast and convenient printing options, all in a secure environment. By sending documents, Web pages and emails to a remote server, the data is converted into a printable file for the HotSpot MFP and is transmitted to the device. A secure release code is then sent to the user who enters the code at the MFP LCD panel when ready to print.
"Launching the HotSpot feature for the MFP is a critical step as Ricoh expands its mobile printing offering," said Matt Sakauchi, vice president, office printer business group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "Offering a secure, web-connected option that allows users to print from their smartphones to any Ricoh HotSpot enabled device, gives Ricoh customers a competitive advantage to better conducting their business quickly and efficiently in an ever-changing marketplace."
