You're full of smart ideas. Share them immediately using the powerful, compact RICOH IM 550F Black and White Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP). Print, scan, copy and fax with incredible speed, precision and convenience. Because it's built on the RICOH Always Current Technology platform, you can add workflow enhancements on demand to simplify the way you work long into the future.

Meet emerging, everyday needs

Embrace the power of an intelligent MFP designed to accommodate the demands of an ever-changing workplace. With RICOH Always Current Technology, you have built-in obsolescence protection, with on-demand access to feature enhancements and productivity apps today and in the future.

Respond with speed and confidence

Put information at your fingertips with the redesigned, Android-based 10.1" Smart Operation Panel (SOP). Access apps, create shortcuts and more with a single flick. Customize the Home Screen and choose Full View mode to access key settings without scrolling. Use the web browser to capture information online, including optional cloud services such as RICOH Content Manager.

Go with the flow while on the go

Download the RICOH Smart Device Connector App to your iOS® or Android® smartphone or tablet to grab and share information from cloud storage, address books and other sources. Connect directly via Near Field Communication (NFC), a QR code on the MFP, Wireless LAN or Bluetooth and avoid software, drivers, utilities and delays.

Add productivity, save space

Meet every demand, every day. Place the compact IM 550F on a counter, cabinet or desk to optimize everyday workloads in Mac®, Windows® and host print environments. Use PostScript emulation or opt for Genuine Adobe® PS3 for fast, accurate results. Print sharp lines and precise text at up to 57 pages per minute (ppm). Add optional paper trays to expand paper capacity to up to 2,600 sheets and minimize interruptions.

Digitize and optimize

Use the 100-sheet Single-Pass Document Feeder (SPDF) to scan two-sided documents and distribute them instantly via multiple Scan-to capabilities. Or, use RICOH Smart Integration Workflows and send them to Dropbox™, SharePoint™ and other cloud services. Embrace paperless faxing, including direct email delivery, to streamline transmissions.

Maximize MFP uptime

Let RICOH Intelligent Support* optimize MFP maintenance. Use RemoteConnect Support to grant remote technicians access to your Smart Operation Panel. Identify errors and submit service requests from the panel, too. Use Smart Assist to troubleshoot issues yourself via videos, user guides, FAQs and more. Plus, the IM 550F offers automated device updates, notifications and alerts to reduce downtime even more.
*When enabled, internet connection required.

Make security a priority

Enhance accountability in the office. With User Authentication, users log in to the device via passcodes, billing codes or an optional NFC card reader. Use the Locked Print function to hold prints until the authorized user releases them. Set print quotas. Track users and activity. Use optional RICOH Device Manager NX Accounting to issue chargebacks. Plus, the hard disk drive offers encryption.

Embrace the small footprint, big savings

The IM 550F is ENERGY STAR® certified, meets EPEAT® Silver* criteria and has a 0.812 kWh Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value. Track paper-saving metrics with the Eco-Friendly Indicator. See exactly how much toner remains and minimize unnecessary replenishment. Use Sleep Mode to conserve energy when the MFP is inactive — or program it to power down automatically.
