Ricoh to Showcase Postal Optimization and Compliance Solutions at National 
Postal Forum 2013 
Company Highlights Award-Winning Workflow Solutions Delivering Cost
Efficiencies and Addressing Pain Points for Mailers of All Sizes 
BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 --   Ricoh Production Print
Solutions (Ricoh), a leading provider of digital output solutions,
today announced its line up for 2013 National Postal Forum (NPF),
March 17-20 in San Francisco, CA. Attendees who visit Ricoh booth
#836 can experience various mailroom solutions from the award-winning
Ricoh ProcessDirector portfolio that are enabling customers to see
cost-savings, increased efficiencies and compliance-driven output.  
Mailers who handle critical communications are increasingly the
subject of regulation, requiring end-to-end document tracking. But
too often they are left without a complete solution, having to mix
and match options from various vendors which can often be expensive
and complicated. At NPF, Ricoh will address their needs with a
complete, end-to-end portfolio that provides mailers with
cost-effective and streamlined solutions.  
Ricoh will conduct live demonstrations at NPF of service offerings
that enable small, medium and large mailers to increase the integrity
of each mail piece while delivering compliance-driven output. With
these proven capabilities to improve address quality, sortation and
integrity, mailers can feel more confident that their output will be
delivered accurately and in a timely manner.  
A centrepiece of the live demonstrations will be Mail Insight, an
extended feature of Ricoh ProcessDirector workflow software which
allows mailers to interface with the United States Postal Service
(USPS) system and was recently installed at Los Angeles Department of
Water and Power, the nation's largest municipal utility. Mail Insight
leverages Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMb) tracing, a USPS requirement
to enable companies to receive status of a mail piece as it is
processed by the USPS, tracking important information for vital
decision making.  
"Considering that this is such a critical a time for the postal
industry, we've come to NPF with solutions that can help mailers of
all sizes realize operational cost savings while increasing their
efficiency," sai
d Bill Shaffer, manager, worldwide software alliances
for Ricoh. "Our portfolio -- including cloud-based, scalable
solutions -- can be customized for mailers of all sizes. We look
forward to showcasing these solutions, which combine more than 50
years of enterprise innovation and experience with production
printing and workflow, in highly complex and multifaceted print
At Ricoh booth 836 attendees will be able to see: 
Ricoh ADF Essentials - available starting today via the cloud or as
an on-premise offering, this enables mailers to streamline print
operations and maintain high integration environments while
implementing automated postal processing. ADF Essentials combines
both the postal mail optimization and workflow features to help
customers cost-effectively manage their mailrooms. Using the
company's industry-leading ADF capabilities via Ricoh
ProcessDirector, and the full range of postal optimization
components, the offering provides a complete end-to-end solution. 
At NPF, Ricoh will showcase ADF Essentials as a cloud-based offering.
This offers small to mid-sized mailers the opportunity to operate
workflow in a secure environment as a Software as a Service (SaaS),
giving them access to the same proven solutions as companies with
larger budgets.  
Ricoh ProcessDirector - Ricoh will demonstrate advanced postal
optimization functions built on the award-winning Ricoh
ProcessDirector infrastructure. These features enable customers to
improve tracking and reconciliation, maintain confidentiality and
optimize the entire print-to-mail process and much more.  
Ricoh's Office On-Ramp - this offering connects the enterprise's
network of one-off, ad hoc document production with the enterprise's
print production operation. With Ricoh's Office On-Ramp, the
thousands of customer communication documents produced manually are
now routed electronically to the ADF driven by Ricoh ProcessDirector.
Upon arrival, ADF ensures that these documents can be pooled,
updated, corrected, commingled, postal sorted and efficiently
printed. Once through the printing and mail processes, the documents
can also flow to existing archives for retention, downstream access
or audit function. For large enterprises, this offering helps lower
print and postal costs, reduce operational costs, ensure consistent
and compliant communications, and leverage existing production print
In addition to the demos at the booth, Ricoh executives will also be
leading two speaking sessions at NPF: "Analytics: The Right Message
to the Right Customer," and "IMb: Getting to IMb and Confirmed
Delivery." And for attendees looking to learn more, Ricoh business
process solution experts will be available for custom consultation
each day.
