Ricoh focuses on cost recovery, workflow efficiency and mobile printing
London, UK, 10 February 2010 - Ricoh UK will be focussing on driving cost and business productivity efficiencies at this year’s Legal IT show. Showcasing a series of solutions and products to meet the evolving needs of legal organisations, Ricoh will be unveiling the latest generation of its recovery solution Equitrac Professional 5.3, and demonstrating its eCopy ShareScan suite and eCopy Paperworks, which work in tandem to maximise business process efficiency. Ricoh UK will also preview its pioneering HotSpot-enabled technology, enabling direct printing from mobile devices.
Equitrac Professional 5.3
Equitrac Professional is a scalable solution that allows legal organisations to track and assign costs relating to copy, print, scan and fax activities to specific clients and projects, for optimal cost control and accounting transparency. The latest version, Equitrac Professional 5.3, allows employees to scan documents directly into a document management system; it also provides support for the latest operating systems Windows® 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
eCopy ShareScan and eCopy Paperworks
The newly-launched eCopy Paperworks operates seamlessly with leading document and capture and distribution solution eCopy ShareScan, which enables the effective scanning, merging and modification of PDF documents on the network. This allows employees to pool sensitive legal data more effectively. Using direct single sign-on integration, eCopy PaperWorks also enables employees to connect with the business software applications they utilise daily and communicate with back office applications. As a result, workflows are more streamlined and productivity is improved, while the exposure to compliance risks is minimised.
Mobile device users can now print remotely and securely without the need for print drivers or associated software, using HotSpot-enabled printers. Remote workers can print ‘on the move’ by forwarding an email print request to a designated address, or by uploading requests to a unique internet address that connects to the HotSpot-enabled printer. Once sent, the user receives a unique ‘release code’ to process their documents. Additional security features include data encryption during file processing and transmission, as well as password protection, to ensure that sensitive documents can only be printed by the appropriate users.
Solutions Product Manager at Ricoh UK, Neil O’Donoghue, comments: “Legal firms store large amounts of sensitive data on paper, so it is understandable that these organisations are increasingly looking to reap the rewards of effective document governance. Ricoh has developed products and services that deliver key business benefits to the legal sector, driving down costs, offering process transparency where needed, maximising adaptability and productivity without compromising on security.”
