Ricoh’s New ‘MFPs for Education’ Feature Cloud, Accounting, Security Features

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 2.28.43 PMIn a strategy that targets the education sector, Ricoh Americas is optimizing various color and black-and-white MFPs for the education sector, introducing new “education MFPs,” the Multifunction Printer (MFP) for Education Series. The MFPs may be integrated with Learning Management Systems (LMS), cloud-based document storage, and job-accounting software options. They’re also equipped with large touch screens to make it easier to use these solutions, as well as  built-in paper tray locks so that only authorized users can load paper, preventing improper use, and loading of incorrect paper stock. An Optional ID card reader to prevent unauthorized access is also available.

The MFP for Education Series consists of MFPs rated from 25 to 60 ppm that are designed for various school and campus needs, from computer labs, to departmental use. They may integrated with optional software solutions and cloud-based document-storing-and-sharing services and learning systems such as Blackboard Learn, Canvas, Google Drive,  and Dropbox, as well as with Pharos and PaperCut MF job-accounting solutions. They may also be integrated with Ricoh’s Integrated Cloud Environment cloud-based service and customized for education with Ricoh’s ICE – Cloud Education Package, which enables users to scan-directly-to and print directly from optional cloud-based services.

“When it comes to output devices at schools and on campuses, two major goals I hear from people on campus are, one, improving uptime of communal printers, and, two, improving integration with cloud services and learning management systems, which can vastly improve students’ ability to learn, faculty’s ability to teach, and administrators’ ability to work efficiently,” said Renaud Rodrigue, vice president or Ricoh Americas’ Higher Education group. “The MFP for Education Series addresses both, driving increased uptime – and therefore more available printers per user – and facilitating integration with the software that is so vital to the modern education environment.”
