Go big in a small space

You can do it all with the Ricoh MP 305SPF. Use this compact, affordable MFP to print, copy, scan and fax in small offices, construction trailers, libraries, kiosks, nursing stations and other locations where space is at a premium. You can even share information in larger documents, up to 11" x 17", without investing in and searching for specialized devices. Simply load oversized paper stock through the bypass tray of this desktop printer.

See how customization is a huge advantage

Take advantage of the all-digital 10.1" wide Smart Operation Panel to move from one job to the next effortlessly. With its intuitive Workstyle Innovation Technology, you can use the same flick-and-pinch and swipe scrolling you use on your smartphones and tablets to begin one-touch workflows (such as ID Card Copy), check the latest system settings and access advanced controls. Designed to help you simplify complex tasks, this intelligent device also lets you access cloud applications and connect with mobile users.

Work the way you want

Share information your way with tailored workflows you can design yourself. Skip cumbersome manual entry steps by creating workflows on the home screen. Simply tap the shortcut icon to access frequently used tasks, such as scanning to a network folder, with a single touch to help streamline your business processes. You can even use the document server to store up to 3,000 frequently used documents right at the device to eliminate repetitive tasks.

Print from anywhere

Use the MP 305SPF with the Ricoh Smart Device Connector app to stay productive from anywhere. Grab information from any cloud application and send it to the MFP from your personal mobile device for fast, convenient and secure mobile printing. Or, scan and save information to a USB or SD card and plug it directly into the device for easy printing.

Work smarter right out of the box

Preconfigured with standard features like a powerful hard disk drive and oversized touch screen panel, the MP 305SPF is designed to simplify the way you work via automated workflows. Use optional Optical Character Recognition (OCR) scanning to make images and files searchable so you can find and retrieve them faster. In addition, you can scan two-sided documents, set duplex printing as a default and add plug-and-play software to expedite your scanning workflows.

Help protect your personal information

Hold every user accountable. Add user authentication via an optional NFC card reader or with passcode logins, so you can monitor every user and project. Attach billing codes and track tasks and document costs accurately for specific clients, jobs or workgroups. Take advantage of encryption and the data overwrite capability to help protect information and images.

Save space, save energy

Get your messages across loud and clear without exerting much energy — or noise. In fact, the MP 305SPF is designed specifically to minimize operating noise in smaller areas. Take advantage of EPEAT® Silver* rating and ENERGY STAR certification to reduce Typical Electricity Consumption to 1.2 kWh/week, reducing your costs. Schedule even greater savings by programming the MFP to power off when you're out of the office. And recycle your used toner and other supplies with our consumable and product recycling programs.
