Art... you'd make $1 million a year if you sold Canon! Love the idea of the staple-free stapler though - not sure if it would be worth it because staples are so cheap and most companies would probably charge double over a regular staple finisher.

How about an entry level wide format printer based on GelSprinter technology? $3-5K price range. A quality Tabletop B/W with a full sized display and a low cpc.

Art, First great year, month and quarter! Even after your time in industry it always has to feel good to close out as strongly as you did! I'm a sales manager and have been using your twelve days of selling emails as an example for my sales team. In particular a new rep who's been selling for less than a year really loves these emails. I also have a rep on my team that's been in industry close to 30 years and these emails have helped reinvigorate him. Essentially your emails are the same...

Not just color. We could see a big consolidation of speed bands too. If certain manufacturers can make low cost 40 and 50ppm engines that retail for under $4,000 do we really need to have 25ppm engines that retail for over $5,000?

If they offer them for the price of black & white units, yes. If they try to have the same price point as current color systems, they would lose out on price to any manufacturers that continue to make b/w only systems. Additionally, they would have to have a multi-tier billing system for color so as to not scare off people that have intentionally stayed away from color. The industry billing systems (e-Automate, OMD) would need to make that easy to manage & bill as well.

Agreed that the cost of color would have to be the same as the current black systems. I for one would like to only offer color, I think it would be better for the industry. I also believe that the color machines don't cost that much more to make the black systems. I'd bet that the margins are the 20-25-30 ppm nlack systems are huge from the manufacturing side.

HP forced the rest of the industry's hand when the HP 4345 was such a big hit in large firms. As long as most reps are still proposing A3 instead of A4, there can be pretty substantial hardware margins in A4 systems. Additionally, selling A4 systems which typically have higher CPC rates is actually better for dealers who are focused on growing their recurring revenue streams. That being said, if the manufacturers start cranking out the machines Art desperately wants (A4 systems with the same...

We recently picked up the OKI line and have been VERY satisfied with regional mgrs. response to inquiries and problems. The machines are quite robust and produce fantastic color! The manufacturer pays a significant amount towards shipping, a BIG plus for us in Alaska, and a generous spiff to the reps. I don't expect them to last 8-10 years, like the Ricoh A3, but they are selling like hotcakes. Love them!

Re: Sharp "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"

Art, I'm in Japan this week meeting with key clients and have asked this question to several. In typical fashion, no one wants to speculate on what will happen. Is this a good or bad sign? Is Sharp changing a good sign? If it doesn't is this bad, or does it mean it is continuing its commitment to our industry? Since the year 2000, 50% of Fortune 500 companies have fallen from its ranks--no longer considered leaders (by at least that standard). This is most often due leadership...

I spoke to Epson while at the BTA show on Orlando about this system. The System ships will all of that ink!! I did not even ask what the cost of the replacement cartridges were, I should have. Interesting to see if this system will pan out. Note the "buns" that are on each side of the system. On each side there are two huge bags of ink. Kinda reminds me of Princess Leia hair style!

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

ty for this. Doing the math, black is .00865 and color is .005493 correct. Or are we adding 649 + 1,236 for a total of 1,885 and the dividing by 75,000 to get the cost per page. In that case the cpc would be .0251. tkern, have you sold any of these yet? Thoughts on the product?

Re: Epson launches $8000 colour printer

We are not a reseller for Epson at this time. We are merely testing the equipment and have been for some time. All they gave me is the "list price" for each bag of toner which is what I posted. I would assume CPC would be calculated the same way as a toner based machine. Based on my evaluation we would not be a reseller of the current machine and would wait until a page-wide array machine would come out to consider. The 24ppm is not accurate when printing high quality documents.

You need to have a "Not Available" option. I just left the question unanswered but that skews the results. For instance, there is no way my company would allow a segment 2 to be placed without a base no matter the cost per image was.

Re: Ricoh MP 401SPF Spec Review

Drop Out Color Send When scanning in B&W, users can choose to NOT capture a specific color -red, green, or blue - from a scanned page. This is useful when extracting data from forms, or to enhance OCR scanning accuracy by narrowing the range of color characters to be interpreted as editable text.
