  • Publication number: 20210263960
    Abstract: An information processing device includes circuitry that acquires a message to be transmitted to a transmission destination and user information of the transmission destination. The circuitry obtains a piece of information indicating a specialty from the message. The circuitry stores, in a memory, the piece of information indicating the specialty in association with the user information of the transmission destination. The circuitry searches for a user, in response to an inquiry related to a target specialty and according to content of the inquiry, based on one or more pieces of information indicating one or more specialties including the piece of information indicating the specialty. The one or more pieces of information are previously stored in the memory.

  • Patent number: 9609158
    Abstract: An image forming device having a printer unit, a post-processing unit, and an eject tray. The printer unit forms images on recording sheets, and the post-processing unit performs processing on a recoding sheet stack composed of one or more recording sheets output from the printer unit before the recording sheet stack is ejected onto the eject tray. The image forming device includes: a buffer unit that, while a first recording sheet resides in the post-processing unit for the post-processing, holds a second recording sheet therein, the second recording sheet output from the printer unit subsequent to the first recording sheet; and a reverse path that reverses recording sheets when the image forming device performs duplex printing. In a plan view of the image forming device taken along a vertical direction, the post-processing unit, the buffer unit, and the reverse path at least partially cover one another.
