Americas Corporation has announced the launch of a new series of monochrome MFPs aimed at SMEs: the MP 2553, MP 3053 and MP 3353. These machines are also available in Europe.
These A3 multifunction printers with print speeds of 25, 30 and 33 pages per minute respectively, are replacing the Ricoh MP 2352SP, MP 2852SP and MP 3352SP.
The MP 2553, MP 3053 and MP 3353 have an option for an embedded OCR process which can recognize up to 14 languages with output to PDF text.
In addition to the finishing options available (stapling, hole punching, etc.), in North America, Ricoh are offering an optional 10-inch multi-touch tablet-style customizable interface.
North American models also support Ricoh USA's Integrated Cloud Environment. This is a platform for scanning to some 15 different Cloud locations (Dropbox, Google Drive, Office 365...) of for printing from a mobile device using the 'Print Cloud' app.
