This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The First Week in May 2003

 

Nice thread about the Seri Printer below. I recently sold a Seri Printer with a Ricoh HQ9000 duplicator, well it was last year.  I ran across the perfect application and pretty much knew there was no one else in the US that would even think of offering the Seri Printer and the Duplicator.  Ricoh discontinued the Seri Printer in the US about ten years ago.  To make a long story short I met the inventor of the Seri Print back in 2002 when I visited Japan.  He was England or Scotland I think.  I reached out to him about the Seri, they were still offering the product. We imported the Seri, combined it with the duplicator and made 40K GP a little over a year ago. It was AWESOME

The silver bullet me be the new gWare Software that Ricoh is about to launch. gWare in conjuction with PCSM not only allows the law firm to track all prints but allows copies also to be tracked by a central print server and apply a cost factor to the copies/prints for billing purposes. You can even set it up to automatically email the data at a prescribed time. With this embedded software, they will no longer have to go to each copier and retrieve client code data and combine it with print data

printing on novel 5.1

I have a customer who is working in a novel 5.1 environment. They do not have a server, they just use straight IP and something called NDPS. One of my competitors just failed miserably with a gestetner 3502. I need to find a way to make this work....

We also have systems out in the field printing from UNIX through PCL. Can't tell you what 'flavor' the UNIX is right off the top of my head. However we also have other customers printing to Ricohs from UNIX through Postscript.

Re: 1st Qtr

Yep, we got off to a slow start as well. Ricoh said we were running at the top of their growth list. Wondering where we are fairing at the moment. The light's on though. Already at 85% of this months quota and only 10% from List. Sounds like we may all have felt a little bit O' da world here at home... Thank goodness for the 1224 & 1232 for drumming up some opportunities all around. GOOD SELLING!!! -Greg

Do they have it set up for Auto Color Selection as default? We haven't hade any problems with this unless they are using Processed Black (AKA Setting up the machine) in "Full Color" mode instead of auto color. The only thing is that if it is in full color mode, everything will print black and color at the color speed.

Re: 1060 v Minolta Di551/Konica 7155 need help!

Thanks very much for the advice from all who responded to my call for help - the law firm is behaving as if the 1060's advantages are not important as they do not do much in the way of two sided, 5 cpm more is not that much faster, the doc server won't be used, etc. The Minolta is sort of like a 1055 with scanning would be and is leaving me with a price disadvantage. Still looking for the silver bullet to do it in! Will let you know how it turns out.

How about this way ... offer the 1055 along with a network fax device. This will offer scanning without the need to tie up the copier. 55 page per minute Copier/Printer is for productivity of output ... right? Some of the fax models can do all of the scanning features of the 1060 ... plus in color - your customer might see the value of that.

This post is about terminology, even reading it myself I sound like a smart-ass, but all I'm trying do is give out some info, please don't take offense . Novell is the name of a company that makes a Networking product called Netware, Just like Microsoft makes Windows 2000. Novell Netware 5.1 is a server-based Product. If they actually have Novell Netware 5.1, there is no possible way they can have it without a server. NDPS is Novell Distributed Printing Services, this runs on the server and is

Agreed! Novel networks are just like Win2K Server et all networks. If they are using novel then they must have a server somewhere. Jason, you hit the nail on the head. Yes...we can print with Novel networks NDPS there are some downloads that you have do do but it works well once you get it running! Graham

One more thing....If they do Strait IP Printing to the PC's, then the Novel and NDPS is not an issue...That is only for printing through the server. They are probably using Microsoft Windows of some sort on their workstations with that, you can use Strait IP printing on the Workstations using Win2K, NT, and XP. On the 95/98/ME workstations, you will need to install SmartNet monitor for Client then IP Print. Feel free to call me if you have any questions. 208-870-4405. Let's get this deal

Page Numbering

·
We have been told for a year now Ricoh will be updating the Page Numbering max digits to 5 instead of the current 3. For example: Page numbers are currently limited to 999; we have a number of law/court clients that need the ability to number to 99,999. It would also be nice to be able to include two letters in front of the number, again, for all the law clients out there utilizing 'bates' stamping. Anyone have the 'inside scoop' from Ricoh on this one?
