The RED HOT designation, awarded by the Association for Print Technologies (APTechSM), the organizers of PRINT 18, recognizes important product and solution innovations on display at PRINT 18 that are new or significantly updated since last year. The program serves as a roadmap to "what's new" in the PRINT 18 exhibit marketplace. These Ricoh innovations will be among those on full display at PRINT 18, September 30 to October 2 in booth 3011.
"Every solution or product we launch is aimed to help our customers secure more customers and address business challenges. Each of these RED HOT Technology submissions is the direct outcome of those commitments, and we are proud to see their impact in our market is being recognized," said John Fulena, Vice President, Commercial & Industrial Printing Business Group, Ricoh USA, Inc. "We submitted six of our newest offerings. And we are bringing home six wins. It was a clean sweep. That doesn't just feel good; it validates that we're delivering what our customers need."
As RED HOT Technologies, these products will have distinctive "RED HOT" signs posted in Ricoh's booth 3011 for easy identification during the event, and the designation will be included in the onsite event guide directory and pre-event publicity.
From efficiency-minded software and services to disruptively flexible hardware to augmented reality, Ricoh's six RED HOT Technologies each change the game in different ways:
