Track who's using the device and what they're doing. With user authentication, every user logs in with a passcode or billing code. Or, you can add an optional NFC card reader and have them swipe an identity card. Control costs with print quotas. You can even pair it with optional accounting software, such as Ricoh Device Manager NX Accounting, to issue chargebacks.

Impress your audience with 1200 x 1200 dpi print resolution, even on thicker paper stocks up to 120 lb. Index. Load paper up to 8.5” x 14” into any of the paper sources, or use the 100-sheet bypass tray for specialty media. With the hard disk drive (HDD), you can create a server-like hub to store documents for fast on-demand printing.
