This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The First Week in May 2008

 

One of the threads below gives reference to the one of the first true A4 MFP's that had an optional finisher.  Hard to believe that some copier manufacturers offer an A4 MFP with finishing today. It's been ten YEARS!  Give the clients what they want!

Canon and GBC

I am up against Canon on a big color machine. I know the Ricoh high end color machines will do GBC punching on-line. The only machines that I can find that Canon supports are the B&W 7105/7095/7086 machines. Has anybody else run across a Conon Color machine that will GBC punch?

How do you get away with selling for $5,500 when they retail for $2995 and are sold on the internet for $2,700? Am I missing something?

Re: Samsung SCX-6345N

The one I just sold had an additional paper tray and the finsiher and cabinet. Muratec MSRP is $4,995 for 4550, I think $800 for finisher and $350 for paper tray and $400 for cabinet. What I have been doing is not leading with this machine, I am leading with traditional A3 systems. When I get an objection, whether competition or price, I then ask the user if 11x17 is really needed to copy, print or scan. In most cases the answer is NO, from there I proceed to tell the story about how A

No credit to me, I'm just a salesman! Honestly, I found it on the web this morning while I was looking for a cute copier cartoon to put on my monthly sales flyer. I cut out the pictures (inside of a copier, we've all seen them before) and pasted the rest. Glad you liked it.

Agreed, but lighten up on the handshake. A bone-crushing handshake is a horrible impression on anyone but especially on a woman. You would think this would be common sense, but I've had this discussion with several customers about other sales people who think a "Firm" handshake means the other person walks away in agony.
