This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Third Week in April 2003

 

What's interesting in this weeks threads?  Seems 15 years ago mighty Xerox also had their fair share of problems.   Interesting times indeed!

Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week!

Troubled Xerox

with a mountain of debt and some tough competition from some very strong rivals — Hewlett-Packard, Canon and Ricoh, to name a few — not to mention a dire slump in business spending. And it will take some time before Xerox can convince analysts and investors alike that its new products and ideas will take the company in a positive long-term direction. After all, it did let the mouse slip from its grasp.

1060 v Minolta Di551/Konica 7155 need help!

·
Proposing a 1060 with scanning/printing option but my price is way higher than the Minolta Di551 (Konica 7155) according to my prospect (I know the o.m. so I trust her). The Minolta is $14,000 with stapler/3 hole punch. Not sure what the scanner option costs - they left it out of the proposal. $14K is about my cost for a 2060 with the SR850 finisher and 3 hole punch kit. Need any weaknesses to justify a higher price -such as: does Minolta include software with their scanner option - BLI book

Lawsuit Pricks Xerox Profit

Lawsuit Pricks Xerox Profit Monday April 21, 12:06 pm ET By Motley Fool Staff Pension woes can bite a company in more ways than one, as Xerox (NYSE: XRX - News) is making clear today. The office equipment maker says it will have to take a first-quarter charge of $183 million to cover the costs of litigation involving its retirement plan. That will have a negative impact on earnings to the tune of $0.25 per share. The issue involves a court ruling that found Xerox had not paid enough retirement

Art, Sorry, I am late in replying to this post...I missed checking in for a few days. The LDP for a Savin 38c with only the standard 64 MB momory and a duplex unit is $4,175. Since no one really pays LDP, I could sell it for this if I had to (but only if it were opening the door to something larger, because I wouldn't make anything by selling it this cheap!). Good Luck Brian

We are a Konica and Ricoh dealer and I am familiar with both products (moreso the Ricoh). They are both good machines, but the 1060 software is far better in most respects: Scanning Konica scans to the hard drive on the controller and then you retrieve it from the "box" with a piece of software called ScanTrip, 25.00 per seat. You have to know which box to pull the scan from. It's what I would call pull scanning. ScanTrip can be set to poll the machine periodicaly to see if there is anything in

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

There has been alot of good advice, but you can also go after Minolta and Konica corporate stability!! They;ve just merged into one company. Therefore, the vendor and or product might go through siginifgant changes passing head aches along to their clients!! Also with 1200 D.P.I Resolution, 2 Scan 1 Pass Doc Feeder, speed advantages, software applications pertaining to their individual needs and DEMO with JOB Programs set up for their specific needs. the 60 will sell itself.. Good Luck

Tips to make your office GREEN!

100 percent post-consumer content, as well as an expanding line of papers made with chlorine-free processes. 3. Reach for the ENERGY STAR(R). Upgrading old products with new, more efficient systems will save energy. For example, a large bank customer reduced annual energy consumption by 34 percent, or 1.9 million kilowatt hours, using Xerox ENERGY STAR-qualified copiers and multifunction products instead of equivalent non-ENERGY STAR products. At $0.10 per kWh, that translates to savings of nearly

I haven't seen anything about this. No news as of today on the Ricoh and Aficio League sites. It is really frustrating when you have customers that have been waiting months to see these...

problem connecting the 1045 to a network, have RPCS drivers, document server, Desktop Binder and on and on. You really need to understand her applications. If you simply face off with paper based financial proposals, the Monica will crush you. I know several company's that have had challenges with connecting the Monica to their network. Pull the Bertl reports off the Ricoh Aficio League and compare. Look for the cons of the Monica and show the strengths of the Ricoh, to either spend more for the

Re: Lanier Launches SNAP

This may be different from something Ricoh is launching this month called gWare but it may be the same. It is embedded in the unit and sends User Code data to a central server. I know about it because of a 54 unit bid that was helped by this information. However, some things that was important for me to know and may be true with Lanier also: 1.) Must be GW Architecture machine...know 1018's or 1055's. 2.) 1022/1027 must have the HDD added. 3.) There cannot be anyother embedded software like

Then again, this is a Minolta, which uses a Fiery controller. It has scan to FTP, scan to box on the Hard drive and Scan to Email. The website also says it can have a 2/3 hole punch. That's about all I can figure out from the Minolta website. Thanks! Lee

Leasing HELP needed from the Mita People

·
I am working a deal where there is a Kyocera Mita Lease payoff. I believe it is in the end through GE Capital. The website is leasingsource.com. Anyway, the old vendor says they HAVE to do the payoff to keep. I don't believe that is true. Can any of you who deal with Mita and put deals on the paper from Kyocera Mita Leasing let me know if this is true. I never had this before from GE Capital.
