Ricoh’s Innovative Solutions and Services Portfolio a Big Hit at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2013

Proven end-to-end portfolio that speaks to commercial and transactional needs shown to 5,000+ attendees

BOULDER, Colo., March 12, 2013
Ricoh, a leading provider of digital output solutions, document management systems and IT services, today revealed the details of its successful participation at Hunkeler Innovationdays. Gathering a record number of leads compared to previous years, Ricoh noted a rise in interest in technology and services that are aimed at extending print services and increasing productivity for corporate and commercial print environments. The InfoPrint 5000 GP printer with the Extended Media Dryer option, seen for the first time in Europe, was particularly popular, based on its greater flexibility for books and high quality reports on a wide range of media.

The Ricoh Pro™ C901 Graphics Arts +, the new flagship of Ricoh's cut sheet production portfolio, was seen for the first time at an international exhibition. The new printer attracted visitors to learn more about its capabilities for marketing, direct mail and packaging applications.

At the show Ricoh also debuted a video customer testimonial from Pinnacle Data Systems, which describes why, after an 18-month study to evaluate full-color printing solutions, Pinnacle chose the InfoPrint 5000. Looking to improve manufacturing workflow efficiency and offer more value to their customers with color and variable data capabilities, Pinnacle discusses how they have increased their margins while lowering costs via the InfoPrint 5000 platform.

There was a high demand for demonstrations of Ricoh’s cut sheet and continuous feed technology including software solutions. The Ricoh ProcessDirector Express, Track and Trace solution, TotalFlow Cadence for Publishing and TotalFlow DocEnhancer solutions have all been recently launched in Europe or will be available soon. Such tools add efficiency to the whole workflow process, and provide ideal ways to enhance performance and open up new opportunities.

Visitors to the Ricoh stand also had the opportunity to see the InfoPrint 5000 MP in mono mode. The demonstrations were a popular choice for commercial and transactional printers, running monochrome books, statements, manuals and other documents. The 5000 MP offers the option to convert to a full colour system when needs change, and so protect the initial investment.
