Ricoh Introduces New Version of DeskTopBinder V2 Professional Version 3

Press release from the issuing company

WEST CALDWELL, N.J.--July 10, 2003-- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today introduced a new version of the DeskTopBinder Professional, a document handling program that helps companies collaborate more effectively via electronic and paper files. DeskTopBinder is a personal document management tool for any user in a general office or workgroup environment to organize documents, develop project files and bind related electronic documents together for easy reference, retrieval and delivery. DeskTopBinder displays documents of various applications that users have saved, allowing them to create notes, view and combine different documents and formats, then print, fax, and e-mail files directly from the toolbar. Also, the new version of DeskTopBinder Professional allows for any file to be integrated into a customized In-Tray created by the user. For every document added to the In-Tray, a thumbnail display is created that helps users locate files and documents more efficiently. "Ricoh understands the challenges companies face when working with several files of different applications for a single project," said Hede Nonaka, vice president of Marketing for Ricoh Corporation. "With the new version of DeskTopBinder Professional, companies have a more reliable and efficient application to combine, preview and print, fax or e-mail both electronic and paper files." New to this version of DeskTopBinder is the Function Palette. By dragging files to the Function Palette, users have input, output, and file conversion capabilities without actually opening the DeskTopBinder application. Features of the Function Palette include Scan, Print, Preview and Print, Send by Fax, Send by e-mail, Save in Job Binding, Easy Print, Convert to Image, and Convert to Text. Another key feature of DeskTopBinder is the ability to convert scanned documents to digital text using the included Optical Character Recognition (OCR) program. Users can also export files to specific applications without converting the file format and they can post documents on the Internet/Intranet without a working knowledge of Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML). In a general office or workgroup environment, DeskTopBinder Professional's features are optimized when combined with Ricoh's ScanRouter Professional enabling users to import and distribute files to individuals and groups from multiple digital multifunctional devices. ScanRouter serves as a digital document delivery system that reduces the volume of paper on a user's desktop, distributes electronic copies to personnel, and saves time and money routing faxes directly to clients' desktops.
