If you’re like most organizations, your scan, fax, print, device management, security and accounting processes don’t exist in a vacuum. You use a combination of these functions to do your work. Shouldn’t your software be the same way? It’s time for a simpler, more intuitive way to work.
RICOH Streamline NX v3 is not a combination of software products rather, this modular suite takes a platform solution approach to address your essential document related process needs. These include device and driver management, card authentication, chargeback, scanning, mobile and secure printing and extensive reporting. Streamline NX users access all functions from a single interface at the multifunction device and administrators utilize one admin console. Because Streamline NX is modular, it can grow with you. When you have user-friendly access to the features, functions and information you need, the result is a complete solution that’s easier for users and simpler for IT departments to manage their fleet and control their output.
Single user interface
Users access the same interface at the MFP to securely perform copy, fax and scan functions and to release documents for print. Streamline NX learns individual user preferences and processes to eliminate common steps.
Easy to install and expand
Streamline NX installs quickly, including all modules and capabilities. The solution is scalable to an unlimited number of networked and non-networked print devices. You don’t have to separately install and configure multiple applications to achieve the functionality you need.
Unified management console
Simplify administration with one application to manage both devices and users — including setting color output privileges for individuals and having control over their print, copy, scan and fax permissions.
Powerful printing rules keep workers productive and help eliminate waste and unnecessary cost. Streamline NX can redirect jobs if a device is down, re-route jobs for efficiency and enforce policies such as duplex printing or avoiding color for certain jobs. With the optional Ricoh Streamline NX v3 PC Client, rules can also be enforced with secure print and client delegation print.
You can know what’s going on in your device fleet to avoid surprises and downtime with real-time status alerts, the ability to see devices “at-a-glance” from the mobile administration app or the management console and the option to drill down for more details.
Security & control
Streamline NX supports 15 built-in security roles and allows for the creation of custom security roles plus security by device groups. No confidential data is stored on the server, no passwords are stored and Streamline NX uses Windows® security SQL server connections. Additional security is also provided in each optional module.
Analytics & reporting
Usage reporting helps you make important decisions, such as device placement and assignments. Over 90+ standard reports can be generated automatically and emailed as well as customized. 35+ dashboard reports include key analytics data — such as document usage summary, device usage, power usage and accounting reports.
On-ramp to digital
Bring documents and forms into your digital processes through powerful and highly accurate Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to create editable data files. Optional Zonal OCR & Barcode support provides targeted data extraction to support pre-defined routing workflows.
Administration & reporting
Scan & capture
Ricoh Streamline NX v3 discovers the devices in your network and automatically collects performance data. Real-time device status and reports are accessible on tablets, laptops and smartphones, so you’ll always know what’s happening from wherever you are.
Monitor toner, paper levels and other basic device status indicators. Learn about issues before they cause downtime with enhanced error polling. Set alerts for specific devices or certain statuses in short intervals — so you’re able to act quickly. Access to toner and ink histories can also help determine the most effective timeline for refills.
Easily export MFP settings
Batch Configuration saves you time and lets you work with multiple devices at once. Export settings from one MFP to create a template, then “clone” that template to configure similar MFPs. Perform remote fleet updates, firmware upgrades, configuration and maintenance. Control user print settings with pre-configured, prepackaged print drivers. You can modify and set default values, lock or hide specific settings and even set mandatory pop-ups to enter billing codes or authentication.
Extend capabilities with enhancements
If you need to extend the included device management capabilities of Streamline NX, there are several fee-based enhancements available. The SP connector option allows you to program and set the Extended Settings for devices and manage these settings, giving you even more control and flexibility. Set additional levels of authentication at the device, scan jobs directly to the HD storage, personalize the display and more.
Gather insights with environmental reports
The @Remote Connector NX enhancement can help you gather actual usage data that’s easily accessible via web portal. Access to this trending data helps you make informed decisions on fleet efficiency to minimize your print costs. Analyze which devices are underutilized or overworked to balance the fleet. Gain insight into your environmental impact with targeted Green Reports that show corresponding cost savings, trees saved and resulting CO2 reduction. Devices issue their own critical service alerts, communicating directly with your Service Provider to solve problems before they trigger downtime.
Gain advanced driver deployment options
The Advanced Driver Distribution License enhancement gives users three additional ways to download drivers: by browsing the device list, choosing from the floor map view or searching for specific criteria. The software can even auto-detect users’ operating systems to ensure a correct match and successful driver deployment.
With Streamline NX, users can authenticate at the MFP using the same card issued to access buildings. Choose from a range of proximity cards, including HID/iClass, CASIRusco, Mifare and NxtWtch. Streamline NX also supports authentication by Near Field Communication (NFC) and biometric devices.
Improve the user experience with a single sign-on for all tasks available to the user. No more unauthorized usage or users left guessing which applications they are permitted to access. Issued cards can also manage user privileges — such as restricting the use of color and regulating scanning with the Scan & Capture Option. Card authentication with the Secure Print Option can also help provide users peace of mind when printing confidential documents — restricting access to the cardholder alone.
With Streamline NX, you can easily perform common administration & reporting tasks. Monitor printing from the Streamline NX server, copies made at the MFP and scans and faxes completed. Distinguish color usage from black & white and measure output by duplex settings or paper size. Establish print rules to allow/restrict settings and set rolesbased administrative levels.
Enforce rules and manage users
A single interface makes it easy to configure settings, enforce policies, manage quotas and generate reports. You can also manage user privileges and access/audit user job logs. With authentication against external LDAP or Kerberos databases supported, you can manage client user roles and accounts at a global level — including login authentication, privileges and reporting restrictions.
Consult relevant reports
It can be time consuming to piece together usage data. Pre-formatted reports can eliminate these manual calculations and compile data for your entire fleet in an easy-to-read format. With easy access to over 90 standard reports and over 35 dashboard reports, it’s easy to find the information you need. Standard reports cover accounting information, job details and scan usage. Dashboard reports deliver real-time data — including device summary, usage, status and environmental impact — in a visual way. You can also run simulations of future device performance to support resource planning.
Get all the details
Get an at-a-glance view with summary reports, or choose to drill down into the details. It’s easy to customize the level of detail in reports through the user interface. Choose to filter data by document usage per cost center, department, device, user, date or workflow. View device usage by hour, job size, color usage, duplex and more. Discover power usage per printed page and potential cost savings by date, department or user.
With Streamline NX’s tracking & chargeback capabilities, you can establish accountability by tracking costs back to the identity of individual users, groups, departments or project codes. Track all user activity (copy, print, scan and fax) initiated at the MFP, from a desktop or from mobile devices. Set user quotas, empower your accounting staff to better allocate print costs and give administrators a platform for configuring chargeback settings.
With the ability to easily track all usage details, you can make informed decisions when it comes time to establish print rules, determine user quotas and set budgetary account limits.
