Art One of your better articles!! Short, sweet, to the point and should be helpful to most reps. Thank You Have a Great Day Tom Koenig Sr. District Business Manager Northeast Region - Dealer Sales Division Ricoh Americas Corporation 5 Dedrick Place West Caldwell NJ 07006 cell - 570-439-2864 firstname.lastname@example.org
Agreed! It's not about what you know, it's about who you know! Believe it or not your are connected to the people you are trying to connect with, you just don't know it. This is so true. Art, we should chat. I hit quota last month getting a lead off Facebook. Very cool potential to prospect on Facebook without getting people's "business guard" up.
I have not been able to get the MSRP for this product yet. But I did find this review that does state MSRP at the bottom. I will give you MSRP when I have been able to get it. A Deeper Dive on Konica Minolta’s new bizhub PRESS C1100/1085 Posted on July 24, 2014 by Dave Erlandson | No Comments » In a previous blog article I reported that Konica Minolta has launched two new color presses: the bizhub PRESS C1100 and C1085. I now have some additional information to share about the presses. The...
Great to hear good things happening with Ricoh Production equipment. It's interesting to hear 13 x 25" paper?? Magnetics? No doubt the image quality is very good. We have several C651/C751's out and this year could include several more!
FYI: Toshiba, overall, is in the top ten for R&D Spend-to-Sales ratios. "Bottom dweller" really is not a fair use of words. 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. Fewer spikes in copy quality or hardware issues because you'll make that phone call to fix rather than putting up with poor copy quality, etc. for fear of how much it...
TimB: Thanx for the comment! I believe you with the top ten in R & D for Spend to Sales ratios, but I don't R & D being conducted for copiers not like Canon, Xerox, KonicaMInolta & Xerox. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. Toshiba's market share over the last ten years in the US has always been at or near the bottom of the pack, thus they are cellar dwellers, bottom feeders, in the US market. You are correct with the MA, they were not asking for...
Art, I like your general guidance to the initial poster, and I won't grade your writing since this isn't an English class. In regard to this brief post conversation, I think honesty is the best policy with customers and with ourselves. Yes Tim, they probably are in the top ten. However, the customer was asking which is the best. By rankings in the market place, the top seven do not include Toshiba. They fall within the bottom 7% of market share for shipments and the bottom 8.6% for market...
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...
Actually, I did not mention that I am offering any equipment to them. I'm not even sure where they are located, I'm not looking to sell them, All of the recent MFP's that I've seen at the shows have pretty much the same GUI> I do remember something about a more robust partnering with Toshiba/
You can still use the document server with the fiery using the fiery postscript driver or the fiery pcl driver. In the PS driver just click the job properties tab, check document server, and fill in a name or whatever you want.
Since they have the Fiery, once the job is printed it can be archived on the Fiery, all print settings will stay with that job. Make sure they have command work station installed on their PC and log into the fiery controller, right click on the print job and archive it.
Hi Txeagle24, Technically Identical, Print Audit builds the PCS Director software for Ricoh, Ricoh then Supports and markets the PCS Director product as their own. If you have current customers on PCSD you should have them update to the latest version, there are a number of enhancements to the embedded they may appreciate.
We became a Premier Partner with Print Audit so naturally, our orders now go through them. The main differences have more to do with timing of upgrades. For instance, we have had Print Audit Secure for quite awhile but PCS Director still doesn't have it I don't think. Also, I think you'll find that you can't "sell" the PA6 software if you are a RFG Dealer. All that having been said, all the things that people care about functionally, are the same.
Old Glory, Secure is now available through Ricoh. This latest version of PCSD now offers Secure Embedded, and the ability to process multiple jobs within a log in. The application works on all devices from Java 11 and older, except for devices with the 4.3" screen which Print Audit is currently developing.
This isn't machine-dependent but rather depends on having a connection to a wireless access point that connects to the network the printer is on. If he doesn't have access from one building to another, Hot Spot could be a good option.
Art, I have worked with and demo'd many of the individual components, and I had heard that Samsung was coming out with a bundle but this is the first I have seen it. The "Secuthru" Lite is a server less follow me printing, pretty cool. The Google Drive (Cloud App) worked pretty well too. Vince
Art, Sounds like you have an old school customer here. I have around 450 large format digital printers in the field 95% of which use AutoCAD and not one of them batch print dwg. files. What version of AutoCAD does he have? The reason I ask is most of the newer versions allow you to batch publish to pdf or dwf.
I do, I got a call after the install and offered to meet again to go through the old steps for .dwg batch printing from plotbase. So far, I have not heard back from them. I have my notes in the office I will check what version of autocad
We bought one of the C300 when they were clearing them out and imagine my surprise to learn we also had to put toner in it! All the other printer based models come with starter cartridges. Anyway, the toner cost more than the fricken machine!!
First of all, from my experience, doctors seem to be notoriously cheap when it comes to office equipment. The thought of giving their staff decent office equipment is not on their radar. They'd rather invest in the latest medical equipment or gadget, Mercedes/BMW, or hobby. That being said, re: HP printers, depending on the model, some of those older printers (like any in the 4000's) print pretty darn cheaply. Divide, say, $125 or $150 by 20,000 and that's pretty darn cheap. They have a hard...
Well Art you would think they would since it would mean more professional services for them. I think some companies are so entrenched in their core competencies that they tend to ignore anything outside that realm. Just my two cents for what it's worth.
