Nuance Communications, Inc., a provider of voice and language solutions, has announced that Equitrac Office, Equitrac Express and eCopy ShareScan are now available to run as embedded applications on A4-class multi-function printers, or MFPs, from Ricoh Americas Corporation.
The announcement marks the availability of an industry leading, print-and-scan solution with embedded support for compact and affordable A4 MFPs, with the newest releases of Ricoh Print & Copy Control (PCC) 4.2 for Equitrac Office and Equitrac Express and eCopy ShareScan 5.1. The Nuance software enables enterprises to have a common print and scan management platform for mixed-fleet environments, including A3 and A4 MFPs, utilizing the same user interface and benefiting from centralized deployment and management, Nuance said.

"Bringing Nuance's world-class software to Ricoh MFPs provides our customers with secure print and scan solutions to automate and optimize their document processes."
By using Equitrac and eCopy software, organizations can add significant value to their Ricoh MFP investments by controlling user access, tracking device usage and costs in detail, and providing seamless access to both print and scan activities at the MFP. Users can access Equitrac and eCopy features such as user authentication, print management, and secure print and scanning through a single MFP interface, including on Ricoh's new A4 devices such as MP301 and MPC305, Nuance added.
"Organizations are looking to bring the most cost-effective and environmentally responsible multi-function printers into the workplace, and require software solutions compatible with existing fleets and adaptable to changing business needs," said Michael Rich, Senior vice president and General Manager of Nuance's Document Imaging Division. "As a Ricoh Premier Partner, Nuance Document Imaging is committed to providing Ricoh customers the market-leading print management and scanning software they need to maximize productivity in their enterprises."
