This powerful yet quiet MFP offers a 10.1"-wide Smart Operation Panel (SOP) was designed so you can customize the way you work. Tap into automated workflow shortcuts. Use widgets and scroll through settings and other information quickly. Create one-touch workflows for scanning, printing, copying and faxing tasks. Ricoh technicians can change Home Screen wallpaper designs, add logos and user messages, arrange icons and more with an SOP Designer tool.

Use the built-in web browser to search the internet. With optional optical character recognition (OCR) scanning software, you can create keyword searchable PDF files for fast, easy retrieval from the embedded Document Server. Complete complex, high-quality jobs easily via standard PostScript® and PDF Direct Print emulation.

Protect your investments

Thwart vandalism and unauthorized system access with an optional integrated bracket to mount an ID card reader and/or keyboard firmly to the device. You can even follow animated guides for paper misfeeds and correct them yourself in moments.

Earn high marks for a professional finish

Take your pick among multiple finishers to automate stapling, hole punching, booklet making, folding and more.

Keep users accountable

With user authentication, students, instructors and staff sign in to the MFP via passcodes or by swiping an identity card at an optional Near Field Communication (NFC) or HID card reader. Use it to set color print quotas and assign duplex printing. With PaperCut MF, Equitrac® and other optional software such as Ricoh Device Manager NX Accounting, you can track activity, receive billing reports and issues chargebacks. Up-to-the-second reports can be sent via email to help ensure data, devices and documents are secure.
