The Ricoh PCC 5.1 embedded application for AutoStore and Equitrac delivers key AutoStore and Equitrac embedded features and functionality direct to the Ricoh Smart Operating Panel (SOP) devices. This client application can also be configured as a Unified Client that provides an integrated user experience for both print and capture workflows direct at the device.

Ricoh PCC 5.1 controls access to the device, and acts as the gateway for Kofax functionality. Users must authenticate to gain access to Kofax-controlled device functions such as Follow-You Printing and document capture. The embedded client uses the Device Registration Service (DRS) to configure and deploy the embedded client to single or multiple Ricoh devices that are equipped with the Smart Operation Panel (SOP). The Capture (with process and route) functionality within the client is provided via Equitrac’s Scan-to-Me and/or Capture and Send capability and the Ricoh PCC 5.1 application can also be expanded and configured for KofaxAutoStore capture, while the print management capability is provided by Kofax Equitrac.

The following figure illustrates a typical architecture for a system that includes Ricoh PCC 5.1 for AutoStore and Equitrac:

Ricoh PCC 5.1 provides device authentication with a single application for Equitrac Follow-You Printing and scanning into Scan-to-Me, Capture and Send with Equitrac, or AutoStore workflows. This client secures access to devices, allows user to select functions such as Follow-You Printing and scanning from a common Launcher, provides card reader support, searchable billing codes at device login, and job accounting.

Ricoh PCC 5.1 supports Equitrac authentication through user name and password, and card swipe with an optional PIN.
