Compelling color and powerful performance is within
your reach
Your business thrives when you maximize resources to work faster and more efficiently. Shouldn’t you expect
the same from your desktop color multifunctional device? The RICOH Aficio MP C305 combines user®
friendly controls, versatile performance, robust security, and energy and paper savings in a compact solution
that’s specifically designed for convenience and affordability. This innovative system leverages advanced
capabilities found only in Ricoh’s services-led platform that simplify even the most complex printing, copying,
scanning, faxing, and distribution tasks. Make it the primary device for your small office or workgroup or use
it as part of an integrated Ricoh Managed Document Services (MDS) strategy to help enhance productivity
and reduce total cost of ownership by saving paper and electricity throughout your organization.
The Convenience of Total Control
The Ricoh Aficio MP C305 includes a tiltable, 4.3" color touch-panel display
that allows users to customize preferences, unique workflows and shortcuts
to help maximize productivity. Users can select up to three specific functions
with one-touch operation for incredible speed and convenience. For
advanced document mobility, users can print-from or scan-to a USB flash
drive or an SD card without a PC.
The Power of Productivity
This versatile device allows you to accomplish more tasks quickly and reliably
with black-and-white or full-color documents at speeds of up to 31 pages per
minute with enhanced first copy time at 6.9 seconds (black) and 10.8 seconds
(color). The sleek and compact design fits even the tightest office spaces
for optimal convenience. The standard 350-sheet paper capacity can be
expanded to 1,350 sheets to support longer, uninterrupted runs. With a
standard 1 GB RAM and an optional 128 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD), the
device comes equipped with incredible power to maximize performance
and storage capabilities even in shared-use environments.
Improve Your Total Cost of Ownership
With its innovative direct fusing and power management technologies, the
MP C305 can save more electricity by shortening the time it takes to recover
from its “1W” Sleep Mode to only 10 seconds. Its class leading energy efficiency
is based on its extremely low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) of only
1.2 kWh/week. When you combine short recovery time from Sleep Mode,
high speed duplex printing with an enhanced first copy out time, the result
is a productive system that provides quicker availability and energy savings.
Streamline operations and improve workflow
in small offices and workgroups
Flow from One Job to the Next
The Ricoh Aficio MP C305 works effortlessly — so you can, too.
Simplify even the most complex tasks with a host of advanced
features. The optional one-bin tray allows you to separate different
output such as faxes from print jobs so users don’t waste time
sifting through large stacks of documents. The auto job promotion
feature lets users bypass problem print jobs easily. In addition, color
thumbnails of scanned documents can be previewed for accuracy
before being distributed via Scan-to-Email/Folder/HDD/USB.
Optimize the Way You Work
Work more efficiently in the office — and behind the scenes. The
Ricoh Aficio MP C305 offers several user-friendly management
tools and robust security features to enhance performance. Simplify
workflow with icon-driven Ricoh Aficio one-click, preset user interface
drivers. Set quotas for users and workgroups to minimize excessive
printing and to help reduce operating costs. Attach digital signatures,
limit access to confidential documents, encrypt data with algorithms
and use LDAP authentication to help ensure document integrity. With
a host of innovative network capabilities, users can work efficiently from
their desk or on the go. The Aficio MP C305 enables users to print
directly from most manufacturers’ smartphones by downloading their
application for convenient output where and when it’s needed most.
Efficiency That Communicates
The MP C305 has the ability to show individual user’s printing
results, helping them to better understand their printing behavior.
This feature highlights the amount of pages the user has printed,
the color ratio of the documents as well as the duplex and
combined print ratio, which details the overall paper reduction.
This information can be utilized to more effectively manage
printing resources and identify opportunities to minimize
environmental impact and save additional paper and costs.
