Ricoh Americas Corporation announced the launch of Ricoh HotSpot technology for Ricoh Multifunction Printers (MFPs). Ricoh HotSpot MFPs offer mobile users the added convenience of printing remotely, making HotSpot a viable solution for business travelers, sales reps, educational facilities, medical offices and others who require access to important files while on the go. Providing a hard-copy output solution for laptops, handheld devices and Web- enabled smartphones, HotSpot MFPs enable users to print securely across the Internet, without the need for a device-specific driver or special software. Mobile printing solutions for the Ricoh HotSpot MFPs are powered by PrinterOn.
Ricoh HotSpot MFPs offer users fast and convenient printing options, all in a secure environment. By sending documents, Web pages and emails to a remote server, the data is converted into a printable file for the HotSpot MFP and is transmitted to the device. A secure release code is then sent to the user who enters the code at the MFP LCD panel when ready to print.
