Where his competitors called on prospects only when a new bid process was about to begin, Somani

Administration followed RFP protocol and recommended Xerox, while council, in a 10-7 decision, opted instead

If I did my euro to yen to US dollar conversion correctly, it seems that Oce is about twice the size of Konica-Minolta. Maybe K-M is buying a piece?

County makes photocopying deal to save more than $1k per month

19 copiers in the courthouse and other county properties. The county had agreements for copiers spread among several suppliers, and some deals had expired. Weikert said bringing 19 copiers under a contract with one supplier will save the county more than $1,000 a month. The agreement provides county offices with new copiers, some of which also can scan and print and therefore will allow the county to do away with desktop scanners and fax machines, Weikert said. The county considered cutting back on

Re: Ricoh Introduces Wide Format Color Scanner for Rapid and Accurate Scanning

$6,500 list..... $5,600 LDP, once you put a MU on it, your sales cost is higher than the MSRP, what the %$#& are they thinking. Realistically, they messed up so bad by not having a color scan option with the new 2400 and 3600 (and nothing forseeable for the next 16 months), that they had to resort to this scanner from Contex. Plus the fact you need a dedicated PC, Touch Screen and the system needs to have a W2400, 2470, W3600 or 480 on the network in order to make this work.

Recently Ricoh has greatly enhanced the scanning features. You can now set security rights for files. Such as Protection setting as "Read Only". I am not for sure that this "IS" the problem your experiencing but, this surely will help find this answer. Read the attached PDF. This was just release from Ricoh March 08. I hope this helps.
