    SAP R/3 Device Type
    Printing from SAP is a problem. Instead of normal printer drivers, you use SAP R/3 Device Types (DT). This DT will print to Ricoh devices, but won’t allow the user to use device-specific printing features, such as stapling, hole punching and tray selection. To overcome this, Ricoh developed an SAP R/3 Device Type to use all printing features on Ricoh multi-functional products (MFPs) and laser printers.
