PFU (EMEA) Limited, a Ricoh company, has announced the addition of the RICOH fi-8040 to its range of scanners. This unit offers multiple ways to connect to business workflows, while also delivering an intuitive user experience, with or without a PC or server.
The fi-8040’s connectivity options include traditional USB to PC or LAN, which enables multiple users to make use of a single, networked scanner. Setup and configuration are equally versatile, with operators able to carry this out via the unit, PC, or web browser.
The fi-8040 offers a ‘DirectScan’ function, which enables operators to instantly scan directly into business workflows from the device, saving both time and money. The 10.9cm touch screen with large, easy-to-use, clearly-labelled job buttons makes for a simple user experience. It also allows scanning directly to multiple email addresses when dissemination of digitised documents is required.
Hiroaki Kashiwagi, President and CEO of PFU (EMEA) Limited said, “for a while now, there has been a growing need for scanners to be able to adapt, in order to align with business goals. As with any technology, user experience lies at the heart of the aspiration, with quality and accuracy also remaining critical, if organisations are to maximise the benefits available.
“Our aim with the RICOH fi-8040 scanner is to offer a flexible connected solution that breaks down barriers for organisations looking to find new, more efficient ways to scan directly into their workflows.”
The RICOH fi-8040 scanner will be available in June at an RRP price of €547.
