Ricoh Builds New TotalFlow DocEnhancer Verification Feature, Providing 
Integrity in the Creation of Critical Documents 
Ricoh Continues to Grow Its Critical Communications Suite of
Solutions, Offering Innovative Tools to Edit, Track and Report From
Creation Through Delivery 
BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/01/13 --   Ricoh Production Print
Solutions (Ricoh), a leading provider of digital output solutions,
today announced that it has further expanded its critical
communications suite of solutions, empowering printers of all sizes
with easy-to-use, cost-effective tools and solutions that verify that
each piece was printed and track that each piece was confirmed with
limited manual effort. The newest enhancement to RICOH TotalFlow
DocEnhancer is the Verification Feature. This easy-to-use feature
enables customers to very simply add a unique barcode to documents
that identifies each piece within a PDF file, and then integrates
with scan or camera technology to track and report that each piece
was properly produced -- adding a level of integrity, which is
particularly necessary when government regulations or privacy issues
require perfect output.  
TotalFlow DocEnhancer is an Adobe(R) Acrobat plug-in that enables
customers to edit print-ready PDF files instantly directly on the
shop floor. Now with the Verification Feature, printers can scan the
barcode at any point during the production process to track progress,
create a visual report showing the percent of job completion,
reconcile pieces that are missing, and initiate a reprint job.  
Other new features that have been added to TotalFlow DocEnhancer PDF
plug-in include:  

--  Rules Manager: offers enhanced conditional logic by allowing customers
    to easily build and edit complex statements. The rules can be applied
    to or extracted from the original PDF, allowing for greater
    flexibility with the data
--  Expanded font support: gives the ability to add text to PDF documents,
    utilizing any fonts installed on the operating system. TotalFlow
    DocEnhancer will embed the appropriate fonts in the enhanced PDF,
    maintaining portability of the document across systems and through the
    entire production process
--  Easy-to-use interface: gives users access to a drop-down menu of Adobe
    Acrobat Pro adding a new level of simplicity

"Our customers today are in need of trusted, low-cost, easy-to-use
solutions to help increase the value they provide to their clients.
Within our critical communications suite of solutions, there are a
number of tools that can help simplify and automate the overall job
from editing to tracking to reporting," said Theresa Lang, vice
president of solutions and services, Ricoh. "Our customers are
looking for new ideas and ways that they can extend their business
with their clients. The new verification feature provides a way for
our customers to produce regulated and high value work, meeting the
integrity requirements at a low cost of entry. "  
With TotalFlow DocEnhancer, changes that previously took longer
periods of time can be handled immediately including:  

--  Set up page groups that mark the individual mailings within a single
    PDF file, edit the first group and apply edits across all groups
--  Nudge an address block so it lines up with the envelope window
--  Add Optical Mark Readers (OMR) marks, barcodes or Quick Response (QR)
--  Hide data or images
--  Add text or images using conditional logic, so additions are placed
    only on the appropriate pages
--  Update signatures on notification letters
