New Ricoh Color MFP Caters to Evolving Styles of Information Workers

RICOH MP C406 is driven by an intuitive, tablet-style interface enabling simple mobile printing, cloud connectivity and smart device-based operation.

Ricoh has rolled out a new 42 (monochrome) and 36 (full-color) pages per minute multifunction product (MFP) providing a powerful set of essential information mobility features designed to seamlessly support the new world of work.

The OEM says its new release is ideal for corporate workgroups or environments with limited space, including doctors’ offices, real estate offices and retail stores. Priced at $5,745, the new RICOH MP C406 produces sharp, brilliant documents up to 8.5 x 14 inches while offering impressive features, such as an intuitive standard tablet-style interface, mobile printing, cloud connectivity and the newest authentication capabilities. With standard duplexing and capacity for up to 1,350 sheets of various-sized media, it packs a wealth of productivity into one of the smallest footprints in its performance class.

“People work differently these days,” said John Brophy, Vice President, Product Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “They want to print from mobile devices, grab important documents from the cloud, scan paper documents to all kinds of destinations, and do it all through the tablet-style experience that most customers have become accustomed to. The RICOH MP C406 delivers everything an information worker hopes for in an MFP experience.”

Other advanced features of the device include:

• Smart Operation Panel, allows users to drag, drop, pinch, flick and swipe to capture, transform and manage business information more effectively.

• Standard near field communication (NFC) technology

• Poster copy, which lets users transform a standard-size document into a poster created by combining nine sheets together.

• Silent mode for printing quietly in open areas, such as hospitals, libraries and meeting rooms.

• Device software manager, a PC-based tool that simplifies and automates printer driver installation and updates.

• An embedded app for simple ID card copying.

• A standard hard disk drive and embedded Java enables optional extended features.

• Power consumption that’s among the lowest in the industry.
