It's time to throw out the old typewriter and carbon paper and see just how much technology can change your office space. Digital imaging company Ricoh has just released a new line of tech that can make work stress easier with simple efficiency. 

Ricoh's new printers, the MP C2004 and MP C4504, both are run via an Android-based tablet called the Ricoh Smart Operation Panel (SOP). To date, the company has 13 apps on the tablet which user can use to print, scan, and copy documents. You can also use it to print book covers for personal projects—you can customize to your preferences, but it also comes with built-in templates.

If you want to exercise a little printing discipline, administrators can even limit the number of printouts based on an NFC-equipped card. This nifty key can be tapped on the tablet and the SOP will determine what and how much the card-holder can print. As with most cloud-connected printers, users can also print on these machines remotely. The C2004 has a rating of 20 prints per minute, while the C4504 has a rating of 45 prints per minute.

Another useful gadget you should have in your supply room is the Ricoh PJ-WX4152N Ultra Short Throw Projector. This model is oriented vertically and can stand as close as 4.6 inches away from the projection screen—perfect for smaller settings. In this set up, with the projector next to the screen, a speaker can get as close to his, or her audience, as possible. The PJ-WX4152N also has a wide variety of input options, like an HDMI which will allow users to watch HD videos and have their very own movie projector. Possible office de-stress idea?

But nothing can foster collaboration more than the Interactive White Board (IWB), a Ricoh device that uses picture-in-picture tech for office-dwellers to contribute inputs and write on in real time—think Google Docs. A user can also upload, say, an image on screen and all the other users will be able to mark up whatever's projected. Each IWB then can print, or e-mail, the final version of the document.

But, aside from the devices launched, Ricoh also promises a high level of assistance to each and every customer. In September, the company will be launching a new service called Ricoh Remote Assistance, a new service that will enable customers to contact Ricoh’s service personnel remotely to expedite their troubleshooting needs.
