them from any FlexRelease-enabled Ricoh MFP

MALVERN, Pa, Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In an increasingly
bring-your-own-device (BYOD) world where employees are using personal smart
phones or tablets for work, the simple act of printing can be frustrating for
workers and burdensome for IT.
That's why Ricoh Americas Corporation today introduced a new cloud printing
service, FlexRelease CX, which enables workers to simply press "print" and
pick up their job at the nearest Ricoh device.
Workers can send documents to the cloud from their mobile phones, tablets,
laptops or PCs, and instantly retrieve them from any FlexRelease CX-enabled
Ricoh printer or multifunction product (MFP) in the world. As a cloud service,
FlexRelease CX requires little or no capital investment or IT involvement,
enabling IT staff to focus on more strategic work. The secure print release
service requires users to verify their identities with a user name and
password to release a print job. FlexRelease CX's time out feature helps
reduce wasteful printing and unnecessary costs by allowing administrators to
specify an amount of time a job is held in queue before automatically being
deleted. Users can also control environmentally-friendly device features, such
as two-sided printing, document resolution, and whether or not the document is
"Many organizations are scrambling to catch up to the demands of their
increasingly mobile workforce, putting enormous pressure on IT staffs," said
Jason Dizzine, Vice President, Technology Marketing, Ricoh Americas
Corporation. "FlexRelease CX, however, provides a location-independent
printing experience that, unlike other solutions, requires no server purchase,
installation or management. Just subscribe and use it as long as you need it."
Ricoh FlexRelease CX supports all email-enabled mobile devices, and adds
additional file upload and extended management features through an iOS app for
iPad® and iPhone®. The FlexRelease CX solution also includes a print driver
for direct print to cloud capability. The FlexRelease CX-embedded MFP client
installs without external hardware on most A3- and A4-class Ricoh MFPs.
