RICOH PCS Director

About the RICOH PCS Director Components

Provides reports on printer inventory, device volumes, budgets, cost baselines and printing workflow issues on the network

Rules-based printing handles re-direction of print jobs to the most efficient devices and controls printer usage and feature availability

Associates the costs of printing back to users and clients for billing purposes

Tracks walk-up activity on Ricoh MFPs integrating all prints, copies, scans and faxes in one single usage report

Using PCS Director

 Tracks all printing (silently in the background) including local, networked and direct to IP print jobs

 Manage and set budgetary account limits for copying and printing by user

 Easily establish printing rules such as page limits by device, color usage, duplex, restrict access to certain settings, and more

 Setup customizable pop-up messages for users to support printing rules

 More than 35 built-in graphical reports showing breakdown by user, date/time, printer, cost, etc.

 Reports can be exported to PDF, XLS, XML, and CSV

 Embedded PCS Director can allocate walk-up activity costs back to users, departments, budgets, and clients on most Ricoh MFP devices

Major Applications

  • Can be deployed in companies of any size looking to understand, control and save on user printing, copying, scanning and faxing costs
  • Facilitates charge-backs for copying and printing within an organization
  • Optimize existing and future printing equipment investments
  • Optional proximity card reader authentication provides device security and with most HID, Casi-Rusco, NexWatch ID cards

Implementing this solution

Installs on a networked computer and can then be pushed out to any number of PC or Macintosh computers on the network

Network authentication integration – supporting Windows, Active Directory, and Novell Directory Services

Runs in the background on client systems and is nearly transparent for employees

PCS Director integrates with accounting systems

Embedded PCS Director installs remotely on select Java enabled Ricoh MFPs


Identifies bottlenecks and inefficiencies on the network by providing a “snap-shot” of all printing devices, their volumes, and use costs

Notifies users (via custom pop-up messages) of print job costs and recommended printing devices and settings to reduce expense

Automates the process of allocating costs back to clients for printing, copying, scanning and faxing

Integrates with most corporate proximity card standards for security authentication, trouble free implementation for IT, and simple ease of use for users
