As Friday came to close, there were only two (sales) of us left in the office by the time 4:30PM rolled around. Why were we in the office at 4:30PM on a Friday? That's easy, our month ends on Monday and we're still trying to get move **** forward.
As we were packing up, the topic of demonstrations came up somehow. There we were reminiscing about how awesome it was to do demonstrations. The planning, the preparation, and of course the sizzle. I'll admit it, I could present excellent demonstrations and close. I can remember telling myself that I'm not leaving this persons office without an order. After hours of wrangling I got what I wanted. Perhaps, I will do a blog on demo's this week.

I'm not!! I'm selling multifunctional systems that can increase your productivity and save time (this way management can pummel you with more work). Yes, the technology of the copier has come a long long way over the past few years. But to get right down to it I don't know of any other job that lets me make my own hours, lets me go on vacation without telling anyone (hope my boss is not reading this) , hey as long as you have your phone, pda or pc you're working right, isn't that a rule? I get

I have run across a couple of instances of when I put a Ricoh out on a server and use the RPCS driver that I get error messages when I print from the user station--typically saying that I must change paper size to A4 and then resume printing by resetting the job. When I load the driver directly to the station, it works fine. Any ideas?
Over the years there have been a few articles in reference to why the 3-5 plan is bad for Dealers and I admit there are some pros and cons. However, I'm going to tell you why the 3-5 is bad for the customer and bad for the sales person! The 3-5 is basically three years of service and supplies rolled into a 5 (60 month) year lease plan. What's wrong with the plan? Lets look at this from the sales persons view. go here for the rest of the blog arts blog
It is becoming clearer that Lanier is taking over Ricoh. The new name will soon become Ranier. With X/Global hitting Ricoh hard and Sharp taking a couple of distribution points (so far), it could get interesting at the big, red "R."
The very first rule about selling anything is you have to believe in what you are selling. How many sales people do you meet and you know straight away that they don't believe in what they are selling because you can feel it when people are lying to you. I have quite often got that feeling from used car sales people because they often know they are selling you something that you will be having trouble with later. Most of the time people sell cars because they are having trouble with them or
The immediate trend (KMBS, Xerox) is Japan direct to dealers in the USA. Global dealers are able to purchase for 30+% off of DMAP 6 equivalent. If Ricoh is going to survive this war they will have to eliminate Ricoh USA. Which got me wondering: What does Ricoh USA do for their dealers...really?!
I recentley spoke to local Global CFO, and he stated that they went to Xerox and demanded prices lower than the japanese manufacturers so they could compete. There are no spiff programs for sales people just rock bottom pricing. Keep in mind that most of the Xerox equipment is from overseas also.
We also have 1050s in the field, but we have had a different experience from you. They run well, and our support from Konica has been superb. Our Ricoh support on the production-level B&W has been lacking, to say the very least.

A friend of mine sells NexPresses and lived through the sale of his division to Kodak from Heidelberg. He told me last week that he thinks his division is getting ready to be sold again.
Art, Your so right. People ask me when will I retired.(My wife retired 5 years ago). I said what will I do. Work part time a Walmart. I work the same hours now and make a lot more money and still having FUN. I like what I do and can't think of another job right now. I also travel down rural roads and I been selling in this territory for 26 years. I have a lot of great accounts and meet a lot of great people.
quote: Global dealers are able to purchase for 30+% off of DMAP 6 equivalent Do you know this or is it a guess? 30+ points off Level 6 is a pretty deep discount for Xerox. Maybe 30 pts off LDP? My guess is a smaller discount with a "pot" of discretionary funds available.

Got this from Greg in an email, can anyone else verify this? Are you aware that for a W2400 the embedded controller is already in the machine. I just did 2 installs last week..You need the Print Option W3600, Scanner Option W3600 and File Format Converter to enable it to Print and Scan. Seems to work fine w/out the Ratio software. Batch printing TIFFS and PLTs are possible thru Webprint, but not PDF's (Ricoh is fixing this, I hope). I beleive Batch printing PDF's is possible thru Desktop Binder
