Posted July 2019
Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI), the world’s leading authority on the document imaging industry, selects Ricoh MFPs for their Summer 2019 Pick Awards.
Ricoh Rules with Low-End to Mid-Range Color Copier MFPs
“Ricoh continues to impress us with its new IM C series of machines, as the IM C2000 and IM C2500, along with the Winter 2019 Pick-winning IM C4500, shine a light on the company in the low-end to mid-range color copier MFP spaces,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production at Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “The user experience is top-notch, thanks to a large, highly intuitive, Android-based touchscreen that offers user-by-user customization. Image quality is very good, and these devices also continue to set the industry benchmark for scanning with Ricoh Intelligent Scanning, winner of a Winter 2019 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation. Users can scan documents very quickly with these devices, while auto-file split capability enables multiple-page documents to be automatically scanned and emailed in manageable sizes in conjunction with a company’s email file size policy limits. Support for smaller-size items such as bank checks, receipts, and ID cards is very useful for those working in the finance or hospitality sectors. Ricoh is a trendsetter in the industry shift into cloud-ready MFPs, earning the 2019–2020 BLI PaceSetter award in the MFP Cloud Ecosystem category.”
Ricoh Shines in Mid-Volume Monochrome Category
“The feature-rich Ricoh IM 350F is the best choice for mid-size workgroups looking for a monochrome MFP they can count on to keep them productive,” said Tony Maceri, Senior Test Technician at Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. “In addition to being very easy to use and maintain, it delivered a flawless reliability performance and class-leading duplex scan speeds. It comes standard with Ricoh’s Smart Operation Panel, which features a large Android-style display, a web browser, and the ability to select from a wide range of Ricoh smart apps. The Ricoh IM 350F stands out in so many ways and was the clear winner in the mid-volume monochrome category.”
