Ricoh extend strategic partnership with Computershare into Brisbane

Sydney, 27 September 2012 ­– Ricoh and Computershare Communication Services Pty Limited (Computershare) have completed a deal that will see a Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 high-speed variable colour inkjet platform installed in Computershare’s Brisbane operation in West End. This commitment is in addition to the platforms previously installed at Computershare’s Sydney and Melbourne sites and is a testament to the strong partnership Computershare and Ricoh foster in providing the latest in colour print technology for the Australian market.

“This extension into Brisbane continues to deepen our relationship with Computershare and reinforces our commitment to supporting the growth of both their business and that of their customers,” said Les Richardson, Managing Director, Ricoh Australia. “The installation of the Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 is a significant investment in Computershare’s Brisbane operations and is also the first colour continuous feed ink jet device to be installed in the city.”

The Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 will provide Computershare clients with full colour, compelling and relevant customer communications for all transactional and correspondence-based documents. The solution will improve customer engagement and speed to market (through distributed processing), whilst simplifying the production process and improving efficiencies (saving on cost and time). The Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 range can hit speeds of up to 128 metres per minute, producing 1,832 full-colour single-sided A4 prints per minute.

“The Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 boasts a reliable track record as well as high throughput coupled with colour consistency and ease of use. The 'white roll in' and any 'colour output out' provides significant productivity increases opposed to traditional pre-printed shell cutsheet printing,” said Richardson.

It is expected that the Ricoh InfoPrint 5000 will be installed and operational in Brisbane by December this year.
