This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Last Week of November 2007)

 

If you haven't noticed, for the last few months I've been posting pictures of my trip to Japan. It was during the summer and can't remember if it was 2002 or 2003.  I was there for seven days on Ricoh's dime, it was an awesome trip and just maybe I can get back there one day.  Enjoy these popular threads from ten years ago this week!

Xerox WC 7328

We have been running into this machine a lot. Any tips on defeating it? Also most of the competitive offers include 500 "free" color pages per month - any idea on how much xerox is building into the deal to cover this? Thanks!

Being a Ricoh/Kyocera dealer, we have out a bunch out in the market place. An they all are running great. So I don't know why other dealers are having problems, but we are not.

We have the Savin version in our showroom. Looks good. Same as the Savin 3815 fax, but has a platen also. Smells a little like a Samsung or Brother but documentation indicates its a Ricoh OEM. Feeder seems more reliable than the Savin AC205. A good tool to compete against the big box office supply chains and catalogue companies. Fits many needs, small laser printer, fax machine, convenience copier. With the price being so low any company can afford one. I guess the real question would be how

Notification when forwarding

·
My customer has a Savin C2824 and would like all incoming faxes forwarded to a folder. Their IT support says they've seen a Kyocera Mita do this and send a notification to the person whose PC the folder is on. Does anyone know of an application that will do this? My other alternative I guess would be email notification. Any ideas?

Just a word of warning, you would be fired on the spot if you sold equipment on the side while working for my company, regardless of who gets the maintenance agreement. Selling equipment for one company (you) while employed for another is a serious breech of contract and would not be tolerated with most companies. It really is no different than if you sold copiers for one company while employed for another.

Re: 30 x 42 Half Scale

I stock and sell 15" paper (for other plotters that are spindle - loaded) but don't move very much, partly due to the need to offset the roll and CAD page setup hassles. Most customers are content with 22" output. Ricoh users don't have any choice.

They only have one model,and that 3650w has been nothing but problems for us, not sure if it really matters if kyocera has a wide format or not. quote: Originally posted by Art Post: Heard from a well respected source that Kyocera will be eliminating its wide format systems. Has anyone else heard this??

Its kind of true. All Kyocera's own wide format have ceased production. The KM-3640w is a remodelled KIP 3000 and the only wide format available through Kyocera right now. And it seems the original KIP version wins this one....

u can remind the IT person that the Kyocera has to have 2 pieces of software loaded on each PC that can only run in startup mode (no service mode)for this to be capable.

I'm considering hiring a part-time telemarketer to call phone call companies in our database and see if they are making any equipment changes because are salespeople are too busy and many companies aren't getting called on. Does anyone have this in place? How is it working? Any suggestions on compensation? Thanks!
