of saved print data can be previewed. Checking before 
printing ensures accurate operation.

Users can swipe on the home screen, pinch on the preview
screen, and display the soft key numeric keypad when
necessary, just like when intuitively operating a smartphone
or tablet device.



Tiltable Operation Panel

and short-statured users can operate it at an optimal angle. This feature can reduce
the glare of fluorescent light in the installation environment.

letters in order to highlight letters. Furthermore, the heights of the letters for the main 
function keys are designed to be at least 4.8 mm.

OUR DESIGN APPROACH



ALWAYS FROM YOUR POINT OF VIEW

User-Centered Design


We wish to contribute to the business of customers by offering user-friendly document devices and services to as many people as possible. 
We develop products based on the user-centered design process in order to deeply understand each customer and offer better products and services. 
This process consists of survey, planning, design, and evaluation. 
The repetition of this process allows us to identify challenges, including slight dissatisfaction that customers feel and concerns that customers have not noticed yet. 
This is a product development approach that implements improvements from various perspectives. 
Through this activity, we promote the development of products that meet the needs of more customers.

Survey

Information about the usage and use problems of document devices is collected from sales and market support sites, call centers, and customer surveys, and is analyzed to identify and prioritize challenges to be solved.

Planning

Planners, designers, and engineers discuss the challenges identified through surveys, to find the ideal products and their implementation methods. Experts in various fields engage in discussions depending on the theme of the challenge.

Design

To commercialize the planned products, development team members, including designers and engineers, work together on product design. Furthermore, the designed products are reviewed based on user friendliness guidelines and check lists to bring them to perfection.

Evaluation

Simulation and product evaluation are carried out to verify if targets are achieved and new challenges are not caused. Customers and in-house monitors also participate in this verification. If there are problems, the product goes through the previous steps for reexamination.
