Original Press Release:
Ricoh Introduces the Aficio MP 2550B/MP 2550 and MP 3350B/MP 3350 Digital Imaging Systems
Color Scanning Capability Enhances Productivity
WEST CALDWELL, N.J., March 13 -- Ricoh Americas Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced the Aficio MP 2550B/MP 2550 and MP 3350B/MP 3350 Digital Imaging Systems. Ideal for small and mid-sized businesses, the MP 2550 and MP 3350 models have color scanning capabilities that produce clear images, store documents securely and boost productivity and efficiency.
The MP 2550/MP 3350 models are replacing the MP 2510 and the MP 3010. The Aficio MP 2550 and MP 3350 come standard with monochrome printing, copying and color and black-and-white scanning capabilities out of the box in two pre- configured models -- the SP and SPF (the SPF includes faxing capabilities). The Aficio MP 2550B and MP 3350B come with copying capabilities and have a flexible upgrade path which includes monochrome printing, scanning and faxing that allows features to be added as users' document management needs evolve over time.
The Aficio MP 2550B/MP 2550 and MP 3350B/MP 3350 improve overall productivity with a print speed of 25 pages per minute (ppm) and 33 ppm, respectively. Designed to make professional business documents easier to produce, the MP 2550 and MP 3350 models offer a 1,000-sheet booklet finisher and optional hole-punching -- a Ricoh first for Segment 2 Black & White. These models also include special design features that provide ease of use, such as a Full-Color VGA Control Touch Panel, easy-access paper tray handles and animated menu guidance.
In today's business environment, security plays a crucial role, especially since compliance regulations, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley, make it necessary to keep confidential records secure. With the MP 2550B/MP 2550 and MP 3350B/MP 3350, administrators can restrict access to the system to only the users who are authorized with Windows/LDAP/Kerberos Authentication. The Locked Print feature is another security function that allows users to protect confidential documents from being seen or accidentally picked up in the output tray by unauthorized parties. For organizations to meet the highest security requirements, customers can also use the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) to prevent the possibility of reconstructing data from "latent images" on the internal hard drive.
"We are pleased to introduce the Aficio MP 2550B/MP 2550 and the MP 3350B/ MP 3350 as we believe these document imaging systems meet the needs of today's fast-paced business environment," said Michael Hunter, director of product marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "These models incorporate high productivity and security with a low total cost of ownership that our customers have come to expect from Ricoh products."
To enhance organizational efficiency, the MP 2550 and MP 3350 models can store up to 3,000 frequently used documents in its Document Server, where they can be instantly accessed for reprinting, re-faxing or re-scanning. Furthermore, users can prioritize job lists by automatically moving the most critical jobs to the head of the print queue to ensure they are finished first. In addition, the MP 2550 and MP 3350 models offer full-color thumbnail previewing on the control panel that improves productivity and accuracy as users can preview images to confirm that scanned documents are captured correctly prior to distribution.
Equipped with Web SmartDeviceMonitor, these digital imaging systems allow centralized configuration, monitoring and management of multiple connected Ricoh devices. The MP 2550 and the MP 3350 also include auto e-mail notification that sends a report to a designated e-mail address when the machine is not operating at optimum performance levels, maximizing uptime. In addition, the @Remote Intelligent Management System saves administrators time as it automatically places a detailed request for service when needed, eliminating the need for users to initiate service calls, which reduces the total cost of ownership.
The Aficio MP 2550B/SP/SPF models are available at the suggested retail prices of $5,085/$7,035/$8,130 and the Aficio MP 3350B/SP/SPF at $6,435/$8,385 & $9,480, respectively.
