LaunchPad has Ricoh MPC45 and MPC35 based printers/copiers installed in at all sites. They are distributed around the buildings to ensure all users have a printer nearby.

These printers support nearly all versions of Windows, Mac, Android, iOS including AirPrint. Printing can be done directly from nearly any device and users can set up their own configuration on the printer console using various Android Apps.

Basic PC Setup

Step 1 – Install the Installer of the Installer

(Yes I kid you not, Ricoh have created a process that requires an Installer of the Installer of the Installer…  but don’t give up hope, it’s actually pretty straightforward.)
Click on the link below to locate the Ricoh Device Software Manager – this streamlines installing the drivers on Windows.
