We’re very excited to be adding these products to our portfolio,” noted Chandima Perera, Managing Director for Gestetner of Ceylon PLC. “Over the last year in particular our client network grew rapidly, and our dealer network expanded to match. These products will be available across the island for businesses to manage their documentation procedures in the most effective, cost efficient way possible.”

Papercut was developed by Ricoh in partnership with an Australia-based software company. It allows the user to keep track of the printing process-for example it increases transparency in the printing process, allows the dictation of print policies for more efficiency, and improves document and device security. Papercut can also track costs by user, allocate printing quotas and implement a pay per model to recoup printing costs. In addition it has several convenient tools such as email to print, Google Cloud and iOS printing and web printing.

The ESA Transformer is capable of transforming documents into usable electronic files. Using the device, paper documents can be converted to editable e-files in a preferred file format. It is cost effective, quick and easy to use-by eliminating the need for expensive desktop OCR packages, it allows easy convertibility of documents which can then be delivered directly to a network folder or email address.
