This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Second Week of November 2007)

 

The one thread below reminded me of a recent appointment with a healthcare account.  So, much for FAX is DEAD, right?  Seems health care still needs and loves faxing. I'm guessing it's because faxing is still the most secure way of sending a document or maybe it's because it's just easier compliance for HIPAA.  What ever the reason, FAX is NOT Dead with healthcare.

On a recent healthcare install, I was asked if our Ricoh device could do a fax broadcast with the LAN Fax. I stated yes in can, and then asked why they wanted the fax broadcasting.  They stated that they are using a fax broadcasting service and are paying $75 per broadcast, and they were doing 4 broadcasts per month.  Dang, I blew it, I was not aware of this and if I was I probably could have added more GP to the order.  In any case,  whenever I'm in that type of account, I'm going to ask about fax broadcasting all of the time. 

If you're interested in knowing what type of healthcare account, please send me an email and I'll tell you.  apost@p4photel.com

Re: Does Ricoh Needs a Non 11x17 Turbo MFP?

Neal: We are selling the sammy model and authorized for Muratec, however from what I heard there are a few issue with both devices, wouldn't it be nice for a copier manufactuer to develop a no 11x17 device that ran at high speed and had a low cpc?

Re: Does Ricoh Needs a Non 11x17 Turbo MFP?

Neal: Point well taken, however how do we compete with the HP if you do not have the the Muratec or the Sammy? Or how do you compete with Xerox that has the souped up model of the Sammy. I think non 11x17 will gain in popularity, and the soon to be introduced 55ppm mfp from Sammy should prove to be interesting...we'll see.

Sorry Art, I guess I was a little vague in my explanation. I actually scanned the test sheet into my PC with our 3800cmf at 300dpi then just sent it as a print job to the Samsung. So far we haven't been given a price on the memory upgrade. Still waiting for it. We're gonna let Muratec figure it out on their time and money first before we go buying a bunch of memory boards to correct this problem. I'm sure Al at Muratec will get back to me soon on this one.
