This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The Second Week in September 2003

 

I took the time to re-read and correct some of the grammar and spelling issues that plagued me from many years ago. I'm a copier sales person and not an English major. Please excuse typo's or grammar.  Anyway, I must have wrote this after the Ricoh purchase of Ikon and the title "MFP Wars". After the re-read, I realized that we're still fighting the MFP Wars, whether it's the low cost per pages that are low balled or the continuing battle of A3 vs A4. Somethings never change.

Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this week!

MFP Wars "Death of the Independent Dealer"

of the largest or most profitable dealerships in the nation. At one time Alco (Ikon) was a distributor for Sharp copiers, and then one day Alco (Ikon) dropped Sharp and the Japanese Manufacturers shook in their boots. From what I remember, and I could be wrong, Sharp lost about 80% of their North America distribution in one day. Every since then the Japanese manufacturers have been buying dealers to preserve market share. Which brings me to a line in Tommy Boy: go here for rest of blog

Try having the customer re-save the document with the 2075 RPCS as the default printer driver. If the document was created in Word and printed on another printer, those settings sometimes override the print driver setting.

Re: Sales Tips

It is important to understand that you deserve happiness. Those who believe that they are not worthy of happiness may subconsciously sabotage their efforts to achieve happiness. If necessary, tell yourself each day that you deserve to be happy and remind yourself what steps you will take to achieve the happiness you desire. Being happy, you can achieve alot more in life then you ever though. Even in sales, have a happy face, it helps to close business.
