Window-Shop with Ricoh and Go Beyond Print at This Year’s PRINT 13

Ricoh is once again going beyond print to show attendees how they can make information work for them with a comprehensive selection of offerings as part of its end-to-end solutions. When you visit Booth 1931, you can take a short break from the show floor and stroll down Main Street to visit shops filled with technologies that will help you expand into new customer areas, remain competitive in an ever-changing print landscape, and take your business to the next level. One of the key themes in the Ricoh booth is Ricoh’s position in environmental sustainability and support of key environmental initiatives, and how this impacts the print production market.

Ricoh’s booth—or more accurately, its Town Square—will highlight the applications printers are focusing on to meet customer demands and grow their businesses. Storefronts will showcase technologies that will meet any and all of your printing needs—from transactional, commercial, and short-run book printing on various stocks using the InfoPrint 5000 GP, including the Extended Media Dryer, to color laser printers with compact designs which provide big shop output at small shop prices, such as the Ricoh Pro C5100/5110s and Ricoh Pro C8100/8110s/8120s.

Visitors will see how they can completely control and simplify their processes and reporting for direct mail, Web-to-print applications, personalization, document and job management, multi-channel marketing, and much more. Here they will fine a comprehensive range of workflow solutions, including the Ricoh TotalFlow Suite and the MUST SEE ’EMS-winning Critical Communications Suite, which encompasses Ricoh Process Director, Ricoh Process Director Express, TotalFlow DocEnhancer, and Verification feature. For the first time, visitors can also see how Ricoh is using its recent strategic investments to benefit printers by integrating Avanti, PTI Marcom Central, and PTI Fusion Pro into its workflow software solutions.

Commercial production print businesses looking to expand into new areas such as book publishing, transition from offset to digital, and automate print job management can experience how the InfoPrint 5000 GP print platform provides exceptional value, all while providing print and mail customers with a much broader range of media printing options for utilizing heavier weight paper, increasing color quality output, reducing equipment energy consumption and paper costs, and most importantly, allowing for expansion into new market areas—while using up to 50% less power than other inkjet systems.

Ricoh has a long standing position in implementing processes and improvements to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and emissions into the waste stream. Ricoh has also achieved EPEAT certification on its newest production products; a certification that is based on compliancy to environmental design attributes, such as energy efficiency, recycled and recyclable materials, product longevity, packaging, and environmental programs a manufacturer has in place.

The Ricoh booth will also feature a movie theater with interactive screenings on the latest insights on how printers are making information work for them and their customers using Ricoh solutions.

Print industry experts will also be on hand to give insight about how PSPs can take advantage of trends in commercial print, direct mail, and more—and how the latest cost-effective solutions can help meet ever-changing customer needs.

Ricoh’s Town Square will offer an in-depth look at what the future holds for print and beyond—and how attendees can take advantage of it for their businesses now.
