This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The First Week of March 2008

 
In a few of threads that were posted for Production Copiers I see the cost per page was .0039 and .004.  Never, ever did I think that A3 black MFP's would go that low.  After seeing many bid quotes would it be far fetched to think that black could go down to .0025?
I guess for manufacturers or dealerships that aren't doing well, offering such low cost per page pricing on bids can get you cash flow on the short term. However it's going to bite them in the ass long term.  I read a report just a few days ago that placements in the US have dropped 6% since 2015 in the US market. Something to think about?  I wonder if that numbers covers all of the niche type boxes that we didn't have year ago.  Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't most of "Ricoh's" solutions, re-labeled third-party stuff? Except for GlobalScan and DocumentMall (which was actually a seperate entity but wholly owned by Ricoh if I remember right or was that eCabinet?) third-party agreements? Typically, we find out soon after a launch that the "new" addition to the line-up is a tried-and-true but by a different name.
