Ricoh launches printing, batching software

Ricoh Americas Corporation on Monday released its new TotalFlow Print Server software.

The new offering is designed to help operators of hybrid print environments get the most out of both their digital and offset presses.

Ricoh said the new software is compatible with both the RICOH Pro C7100 and RICOH Pro C9100 series.
