Ricoh SA to showcase diverse equipment at Africa Print Cape Town
Ricoh SA will for the second year running exhibit at Africa Print Roadshow Cape Town at the Cape Town Convention Centre from June 20 to June 21 this year.
Showcased will be the Pro C751 colour production printer, which meets diversified market needs, including high mix jobs, varying volumes, and short delivery cycles, the MP W2401, a wide format printer with a compact footprint producing A4 to A0 prints, the Aficio MP 4002 specialising in customised workflows and document management capabilities, as well as the new GWNX controller, the next-generation interface into Ricoh's equipment.
“Last year we had a good response from visitors to the show and generated several leads,” says Michael Cossette, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth regional manager at Ricoh SA. “The Western Cape forms a robust component of Ricoh SA's overall market with particular emphasis on the commercial sector. We have a number of commercial and corporate clients here and opportunities continue to emerge which is why we maintain a strong local presence of technical, pre-sales, sales and support expertise with a robust dealer network.”
Ricoh SA will also demonstrate it's ability to deliver equipment and solutions consistent with its international operations, thereby ensuring global clients can meet the tenets of good governance, global service levels, and maintain their integrated environments to achieve economies of scale, wherever they may operate.
Commercial printers, however, are expected to find the Pro C751 colour production printer's features beneficial and Cossette expects that the model will continue to perform well in the Western Cape market. One of the features most driving the success of the machine is its stock versatility, able to handle grades ranging from 52,3gsm to 300gsm, from postcard to 330mm by 487mm sizes with an optional unit, and capable of a variety of finishing options.
“Printers appreciate these features because they help them to evolve their businesses to meet the needs of a changing market,” says Cossette. “The requirement for same-day service, high or low volume, on a variety of stocks, and outputting in a range of options, has become entrenched. People expect it and printers that cannot deliver find themselves battling shrinking margins.”
