Xerox Enterprise Print Services: From the desktop to the in-house print centre

Xerox's move to widen the scope of its MPS offerings across the enterprise addresses the need to manage and control printing as it occurs in several parts of the organisation—at the desktop, in the home or other remote locations, or in internal print-rooms. In itself, the office environment represents a significant source of paper output and is characterised by a range of printers, copiers and multifunction peripherals (MFPs). This environment can be a huge cost drain due to the lack of control

Copying His Way to Success

Bob Leone doesn’t hesitate when asked what makes him a successful businessman. And he is that. He just sold his wildly successful Xerox Corp. agency Mr. Copy, which he built from the ground up during the past 15 years, to Xerox itself. For a lot of money. How much? He won’t say. He’ll continue in his job, and expects to add up to 30 jobs in the next year or so. But he will talk about how he handcrafted his company into a dynamo in the copying industry. A Xerox employee for 20 years, he decided

Agreed, This info is hard to track down. Even harder if you want to be exact. For IKON I used the "400" figure that was published at the time of Ricoh's acquisition I pulled the 664 figure from a report on Vision 2007 Ricoh dealer meeting. That did include all RFG dealers. Interestingly, the report said that Ricoh had over 1,300 dealers in 1999. I took your suggestion and converted Xerox' GSA to excel and did the math. Agents added up to 540, but I assume that some of those are actually Global

A customer was demo'ing a canon color copier with fiery in their office. I stopped by on the second day to check to see how everything was going. The office manager asked me if there was any way that images or pictures would just randomly print off the hard drive of the system. Apparently, some very explicit images had been printed on the copier right before I got there. Rightfully so she was absolutley furious. I explained that the pictures had to have been printed by someone in the office. We

Re: Dealer and Direct Branch Counts

Thanks Chuck, I came up with 114 RBS locations based on Ricoh's July GSA, but it doesn't seem to adding up in terms of authorized dealers (just 143). I tracked down a count from Vision 2007 and Ricoh, L & S had 664. Considering the number of authorized dealers probably didn't expand too much, I'm going with that as a rough estimate for now. still open to suggestions and clarifications though....

Re: Dealer and Direct Branch Counts

Surely that 143 does not count IKON locations and your numbers may be suspect due to a dealers having multiple locations etc., etc. Also are you looking for JUST Ricoh or are you considering RFG locations/dealers. I also know that IKON uses a Phone Number/Home address of individuals as a "location" ergo, that throws off your count too.

that 4% of PAPER sold in the US is 11x17, which is totally different. If the average customer used 11x17 4% of the time, and assuming 1,000 pages a day, that's 40 pages of 11x17 at every customer, every day. Of course in reality, lots of customers print 80-100 11x17 pages a day, and some certainly print 0, but there are still many applications that call for 11x17.
