I have an IT friend who names the printers on his client's networks after the Seven Dwarfs. If he runs out of dwarfs he uses other Disney characters. I always know when I'm in one of his client's offices.

Re: Xerox Celebrates the Creation of Xerography – and 75 Years of Simplifying How Work Gets Done

John Saramak ·
Interesting and a very important post. You have to wonder if he knew how further development of the process would lead to the industry we all know now. Anyone familiar with Robert P. Gundlach? He was another Rochester NY inventor who is actually noted with Carlson on the copier. As Carlson invented the Xerographic process, Gundlach developed the automation of the machine leading to multiple copies. Interested if anyone knows more.

I had been a pretty successful typewriter salesman, when I first applied for a job with Nashua. So much so my pride and joy was the Mercedes Benz I drove. When told by the Nashua Sales Manager that my Benz was inappropriate, and that I had to have a wagon, I knocked the job back. I soon changed my mind not long after though, when I joined a U-Bix dealership after I realised how much money was being made in the copier industry. We sold a copier called the U-Bix 101, which was a bit of a...

Re: Old Copier Brochures & Ads Preserved @ Print4Pay Hotel

Your Blog was forwarded to me and it was very interesting. I started my Office Equipment carrier January 1958 with Anderson Office Equipment in Great Falls, Mt. At that time we had the Franchise for Friden Calculators, Royal Typewriters and Verifax (Kodak) Copiers. At that time our main competitor was 3M Thermo-faxes. Montana did not see the Xerox 914 until the early 60's and it pretty well spelled the end to the Verifax and Thermo-fax. I started my own business in Helena, Mt. January 1,...

Re: Samsung to Acquire Nuance?

I think buying Nuance would be a great opportunity for Samsung to get deeper in the solutions side of the industry. However, I 100% agree with Yeti that it's too small of a division of Nuance. Knowing that iPhone's Siri uses Nuance technology gives Samsung huge opportunities to work with or against Apple.

Re: Selling Copiers "Opportunties Abound to Make a Few Extra Bucks"

Old Glory ·
Let me play devil's advocate here...First of all, usually it's not the dealers that forbid selling in other territories, it's the manufacturers, and dealers are bound by contract to uphold that obligation, which by the way is the only thing keeping us from having to compete with the internet. Secondly, if you receive any kind of salary and spend daytime hours selling a different product, that would be grounds for dismissal, regardless of brand or territory. If you question whether that is...

First is this your actual reply to the account looking at thoseToshiba products listed (455 & 305)? If yes and they have a great history with the Toshiba product, telling them there a "bottom dweller" would make anyone think that you're only wanting to sell them what YOU'RE offering. The models they requested are older models of Toshiba and who knows if they've worked well for them or not. Also if you research the Okidata product, most of their MFP's are based on the Toshiba platform now...

With any device manufacturer, product is only as good as its dealer support. Get references if need be. RE: maintenance; The asker is talking B&W devices not color. Regardless, get the maintenance.

Re: Does anyone have a clue as to how the CPC billing model started in the first place?

Wallingford ·
What came next with some dealers in the Oz market, was a guarantee that the client's copy costs would not rise annually, above a maximum of 10% which most clients would agree to. Or that it would only rise by the CPI, which these days is a joke of a deal, as it is only around 2%. But some now guarantee to hold the pricing for the term of the rental agreement, which at 5 years is just down right stupid.This has now become a lot more prevalent, as weak salesmen sell (if you can call it...

I've only been around 9 years, but when I first started, we were selling the old Ricoh AP3800CMF (A3 color printer w/ a scanner kit attached to make it an MFP) since the 1224c/1232c was such a bust. In our Service Agreements, black toner was included in the CPP, but color toner was billable. When trying to get those customers to upgrade to the 2238c, I would create a cost per page analysis (since toner was included in our CPP for the 2238c) and had several furious customers who thought we...

I remember it well and at ComDoc, in the early 80's we sometimes put the offer out there without it being a formal price plan. I think the customer realized that a lot of the toner they purchased and stocked was useless at end of the machines life. It was like a primer with a customer who had that and TCO on their mind, it was a way to close them. Equally, I remember taking it one step further in the early 90's with copy management - the first all inclusive (hardware, service, supplies)...

I remember a plan that didn't really take hold but it was a plan like the one John talked about and all accessories were proposed in the form of copies...you want a finisher, just commit to 10,000 additional copies per month. The CPC rate had an equipment portion attached to it so more clicks funded more equipment. If the CPC was normal plus .003, 10,000 clicks added $30/month which would fund $1,500 additional. Some customers that weren't willing to pay $1,500 would agree to 10,000 more...
