The Ricoh PCC 5.1 embedded application for Equitrac delivers key 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 functionality. Users must authenticate to gain access to Kofax-controlled device functions such as Follow-You Printing and any document capture functionality. 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. The capture (with process and route) functionality within the client is provided via Equitrac’s Scan-to-Me and/or Capture and Send capability, while the print management capability is provided by Equitrac.
