When printing is convenient and easy, you can keep information flowing efficiently. With Ricoh HotSpot MFP/Printer mobile printing, powered by PrinterOn, your employees and guests can print via the cloud from any internet-enabled computer or mobile device.

Print from iOS®, Android®, Windows® and BlackBerry platforms
 
Windows and Citrix via PrintWhere®
 
Over 100 different file types

Speed up user adoption

 
The faster you adopt cloud printing, the faster you can reduce IT costs and maintenance. Help users make the switch and access the cloud confidently by using the HotSpot Marketing & Device Labeling Toolkit and the HotSpot MFP/Printer User Reference Guide. Users can print to any HotSpot-enabled MFP or printer located on your premises or around the country* by submitting print jobs in any of these four methods:
 
Ricoh HotSpot mobile printing app
 
Email
 
Web Upload
 
PrintWhere Driver

* There are over 5,000 public printing (HotSpot) locations around the world, including sites at major hotels and airports, as well as hospitals, law firms and schools. PrinterOn’s PrintSpots® Directory lists the U.S. locations.

Maintain confidentiality

 
Help safeguard your information with layers of built-in protection:
 
Users receive a release code via email after they submit a job.
 
Jobs print only after users enter the release code at the device or use our unique Remote Release mobile app feature.
 
Data is encrypted through the entire printing process.
 
Documents are automatically deleted from the printer hard disk once files are printed, or within a specified time frame if not released.

Eliminate time-consuming printer configuration

 
The free PrintWhere® universal driver enables HotSpot printing from any Windows-based PC, laptop or application. It’s ideal for public, educational or enterprise situations that involve:
 
Frequent printing
 
Quickly deploying and configuring remote printers without VPN lines
 
Printing of web pages, such as emails or boarding passes that require a login
 
It also reduces your reliance on network printer access for visiting employees and guests.

guest printing. can users sign up themselves and start printing or does some administration/authorization need to happen first?

BEST ANSWER: Hello,

There is no sign up for using hot spot. The user would email the file to print and the machine gives you a code to unlock and print.
