The typical w3601 user doesn't need a robust software package to do small/medium jobs or walkup copying. The post script drivers work fine for all of my users. Tough sell now, forget about making any money.

It has a lot of Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" elements going on That's not a bad thing, just funny seeing...
I haven't sold one since they raised the price and included plotworks. Has anyone done a street price comparison with the W3601, the PLotwave 350 and the KIP7100? Or can anyone report on what a recent OCE plotwave 350 or KIP 7100 sold for with a single roll feeder, scan and print?
Kitz: Not a bad idea, Ricoh may credit us $10 or so for the part and we'd pay $12.00 to ship it back to them. The screen should have been a standard feature and the manufacturers need to stop playing games with MSRP so that the price of the system is in line with others. Adding $189 on the MSRP is not going to hurt any sales n fact it would add sizzle and save dealers and sales people money. Being an option, I would get charged and additional fee to take the old one off and install the new one.
We are already selling a biometric solution here in the UK that works with PaperCut. I'm pretty sure that it would be easy enough to implement in the US. http://www.papercut.com/kb/Mai...ionwideRetailSystems
Another thing all of these new machines including the 6502 and 8100 have is an insanely fast ADF, 120 sheets per minute or 240 images per minute duplex. Everyone that sees these comments how fast the ADF is.
same here, equally as impressive is that it will scan to USB just as fast. Customer wanted to take the scanned files back to the office after the demo to make sure they were searchable and check the quality
for me this is very interesting, JIVE is a web based platform. I believe Classmates.com uses the Jive platform. When I was considering new platforms fo the p4p a few years ago I reached out to Jive. Jive is pretty much for the big boys. It seems Ricoh will partner with Jive for selling overall MDS solutions to it's customers. I like this.... and I think that building the social media space for companies can be an untapped resource for sales. More to follow on this in a featured blog
Maybe I did something wrong during setup. Ours in our demo room is incredibly slow. Just to get to the URL for the home screen takes a while. Getting to dropbox app (or any others) and logging in and making selections takes so long it still looks like this is in development. I must be doing something wrong. Our internet connection is good and I don't know why the MFP is so slow. Do I need to add something? Memory, GB ethernet?
Played with trying to set it up in our showroom. First of all it took over a week and several emails to get a code to enter into the machine when the documentation claims you will get the code within an hour. Fought with it and the piss poor instructions for a couple of hours. Gave up. Can't sell something where the support from Ricoh is that poor. Moved on.
I've tested it, & the OCR takes longer than I would like. I don't expect much for the price, but my clients will. The two biggest issues I have is that it doesn't look like you can remove the icons for services you don't use which is annoying and the fact that you can only scan into the main directory of your cloud services. That's a HUGE miss. Additionally, with Windows 8 being forced on more businesses & the deep integration of SkyDrive into Windows 8, they will need to have a...

We have probably put it on 3 machines since it came out and the funny thing was it was our sales rep who is almost 70 years old. He loves that panel. My younger guys could care less it seems. King of backwards in my mind. I haven't quite found the practicality of it other than making everything "look" like a tablet. If they could make it as functional as the new Samsung 10.1 tablet on the MFP's it may become more practical. Just my $0.02
Yes that means I have a lot of time left as well but I wouldn't wish this guys work ethic on any sales manager. He is the laziest person I have probably ever managed. He is pretty much just wasting oxygen in my office. He is a straight commission employee and a pain in the a$$. We put him on straight commission and let him do what he wants in a very rural territory because we are 99.9999% sure he is going to sue us when he quits or is fired. He has a long history of lawsuits against...
customer is excited about the 5th station. I will enable him to generate additional sales and profits, however, will the increase in price far outweigh what he can make in profit? Case in point, if the system is $50K higher than the C751, that equals $1,000 more per month in lease price. I'm thinking this system is coming in at the MSRP of the 901's. Agree or disagree?
The best thing Ricoh could give us is advanced scanning functionality as a standard feature. To be able to navigate to whatever network folder a user wants would be huge, as would the ability to scan to Word or Excel. Canon already has these features, so we are at a huge price disadvantage if it is functionality a customer needs since we have to add ICE (which has a less-than-desirable UI) or NSI AutoStore.
