Ricoh and Ultimate partner to improve workflow efficiency and control

Ricoh USA (Exton, Pennsylvania) and Ultimate TechnoGraphics (Montreal, Quebec) have announced their enhanced global partnership that’ll offer digital print providers improved upstream workflow automation at reduced prices. This expanded collaboration between the companies will also result in increased flexibility, control and visibility over jobs at any point during the print production process. The timing of this arrangement coincides with the latest release (version 2.4) of the vendor-agnostic Ricoh TotalFlow BatchBuilder solution, which includes the merging of all features into the base product. BatchBuilder enables a quick turnaround on a variety of short-run jobs from multiple sources by performing batching work upstream, automating scheduling, and reducing back-and-forth set-ups for printing and finishing.
