SFU ushers in a new era of workflow efficiencies with Ricoh
MISSISSAUGA—Simon Fraser University has installed a Ricoh Pro C7110X and a Ricoh Pro 8110S in its Document Solutions digital department. The new presses will allow SFU to expand its customer reach through enhanced versatility of product.

Teamwork between SFU Document Solutions and Ricoh produced a well-attended Open House to showcase the latest in technology services (CNW Group/Ricoh Canada Inc.)

Both new machines have the ability to print fully bound books on-demand, facilitating the BCcampus Open Textbook Project—an innovation that allows students to obtain full (and in the future partial) textbooks. According to SFU full textbooks allow students to save significantly on the costs of textbooks and helps make education more affordable.

"The new devices now allow staff, faculty and students to access features that were formerly only available to those doing larger runs," Lillian Ding, director, SFU Document Solutions, said. "We also now have the capability of offering services to an expanded customer set, including other post secondary institutions as well as commercial printers to do work that they do not have the capacity or specialized equipment to complete.

We can be an adjunct to their services. The implementation of the new technologies from Ricoh has allowed SFU Doc Sol to keep costs under control despite the unfavourable current exchange rate with the US and rising paper costs. This helps us achieve our goal of ensuring affordable and sustainable education."
