Ricoh and Apple - A Match Made in Technology Heaven!

Ricoh Americas Corp announced earlier this month completion of AirPrint certification for 10 Ricoh multifunction printers (MFPs). The AirPrint functionality certification means that iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users can print directly to the supported Ricoh printers via WiFi with no software to download or drivers to install. The new capability simplifies the print process for mobile users with a need to print documents, emails, business letters, presentations, and other items from their Apple devices.

All Apple devices, including the new iPhone 5 will have the ability to automatically locate nearby Ricoh AirPrint enabled machines and print to them without struggle. The specific Ricoh MFPs that are included in the recent certification includes: MP301, MPC305, MPC3502, MPC4502, MPC5502, MP4502A, MP5502A, MP4002, and MP5002.

A statement from Dominic Pontrelli, Ricoh Sr. Vice President of Marketing said, “AirPrint compatibility, part of Ricoh’s new intelligent MFP platform, helps make employees who use Apple mobile devices in their day to day work, more productive, both inside their companies and on the road.” Pontrelli went on to say, ” Easy mobile printing relieves IT of the burden of managing software downloads, and eliminates the need for mobile employees to send email attachments around an office just so they can be printed from desktops.”

AirPrint functionality requires an AirPrint enabled MFP connected to the same WiFi network as the iOS device that is sending the print request. The technology, developed by Apple, lets applications create full quality printed output using Apple’s driverless printing architecture. All iOS built-in apps that support printing use AirPrint. The certification is part of Ricoh’s strategy to support mobile computing and printing in the workplace and is also an integral part of its Mobile Services. Citing a recent study conducted by Cisco, Ricoh notes that 78 percent of U.S. white collar employees use a mobile device for work and 95 percent of businesses allow employees to use their own devices in the workplace. Having a mobile print solution for a wide range of products facilitates the print process of documents from those devices.

AirPrint also works with built-in Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch apps such as Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, and PDF’s in iBooks. Printing occurs in the background letting users quickly get back to what they were doing. Users can also line up print jobs and manage their queues like they can from desktop machines.
