Ricoh, a provider of printers and document management solutions and services, announced the launch of the Ricoh HotSpot Printing application for BlackBerry smartphones. With this app, users will have a print option inside their BlackBerry e-mail client allowing the ability to search for and print to publicly available Ricoh HotSpot-enabled printers powered by PrinterOn. 

Ricoh HotSpot printers allow the forwarding of documents via e-mail or upload via http to a HotSpot printing device. There are no drivers to download. Users just need a Web-enabled laptop or smartphone to print to a Ricoh HotSpot printer. The company said enhancements to the Ricoh HotSpot technology would come later this year with the availability of HotSpot functionality for MFPs (multifunction products).  

Ricoh has also introduced @Remote Green Reports. @Remote Green Reports allow businesses to monitor printing trends and put into practice cost reduction goals. With @Remote Green Reports, users can track month-to-month trends in energy and paper consumption of their Managed Ricoh @Remote Compatible document output devices, allowing them to monitor performance and the possible environmental impact device usage operations have on such areas as CO2 emissions or conservation of forests.
