Usability and Award-Winning Innovation Earn Ricoh Honors

“The Ricoh IM C4500’s user experience is top-notch, thanks to a large, highly intuitive Android-based touchscreen that tilts freely and offers user-by-user customization,” said Keypoint Intelligence’s George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production. “Reliability was also stellar, as not a single misfeed occurred overs its 200,000-impression durability test. And because of Ricoh Intelligent Support, which provides pre-emptive service support and predictive maintenance, along with the device’s easily replaceable components, users are sure to receive maximum uptime, on a daily basis.”


“With Ricoh Intelligent Scanning, users can scan documents very quickly, with small file sizes for color documents,” said Mikolay. “In addition to a scan preview, standard color dropout capability allows users to remove background color elements from forms or other documents. Scan file management is further boosted by the unit’s auto-file split capability, which enables multiple-page documents to be automatically scanned and emailed in manageable sizes in conjunction with a company’s email file size policy limits, and scan support for smaller-size items such as bank checks, receipts, and ID cards, which is very useful for those working in the finance or hospitality sectors.
