Ricoh amps up production workflow with MicroPress v8.2
MicroPress helps mid-to-high volume print-on-demand environments maximise their current Ricoh production device investment by providing a fast, high performance digital document production system that produces complex, short run, colour, and black & white documents.
“Businesses constantly face the challenge of customers expecting faster turnaround, more capabilities from the business and high quality output. With MicroPress however, businesses don’t need extensive resources and time to meet these expectations,” said Kathy Wilson, General Manager, Business Solutions & Production for Ricoh Australia. “This print production workflow solution handles complex file formats so you can produce documents faster and more efficiently.”
MicroPress’ open architecture is built on industry leading technology. Its modular design with four upgradeable server options, MicroPress Solo, Plus, Max and Max Enterprise,enables complete customisation and a seamless upgrade path, adding print engines, processing power and functionality as required.
“Whether you are a corporate reproduction centre, print-on-demand shop or high-volume commercial printer, Ricoh and MicroPress offer a fully featured, affordable and scalable workflow solution specially suited to your business,” Wilson stated.
An investment in adding MicroPress to a Ricoh production device is further protected through productivity and throughput enhancing features that include sophisticated make ready, print engine clustering and output at maximum device speed. Clustering multiple print engines delivers print speeds several times faster than a single print engine could produce independently, regardless of page complexity or variability while make ready saves the user time and money by giving them the ability to proof and approve documents prior to printing.
“The open platform of MicroPress allows a customer to maximise their current Ricoh print equipment investment, provide a growth plan for the future and ensures that their business remains highly competitive in a highly dynamic business environment,” concluded Wilson.
