Ricoh Americas Corporation, last week introduced the Ricoh Aficio MP 2550B/MP 2550 and Ricoh Aficio 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 and with the MP 2550B/MP 2550 and MP 3350B/MP 3350, administrators can restrict access to the system to only authorized users. The Locked Print feature is another security function that protects confidential documents from being seen or accidentally picked up in the output tray. For the sake of 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.
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.
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.
