bluetooth printing

This new customer has no real network. So our salesman get the great idea to sell them a bluetooth option for their new Aficio 2232. This is my first experience with bluetooth and I can't find much documentation on it from Ricoh. I know the customer has to have some sort of bluetooth option or software installed on their PC, but what do we need to make this work. And how do you make a bluetooth printer print?

Re: Kyocera KM2030 vs Aficio 2018

·
AS A RICOH/KYOCERA SALESMAN, THE KM2030 IS NOT A GOOD MACHINE. IT'S HARD TO USED BECAUSE OF NO TOUCH PANEL, SLOW DUPLEX, VERY POOR INTERNAL FINISHER. IN THE 3 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN SELLING KM I ONLY HAVE SOLD 3.I STEER MY CUSTOMERS AWAY FROM THE 2030. I CAN SELL A KM 3035 FOR NOT MUCH MORE THAN A KM 2030 AND IT'S ALOT BETTER. THE RICOH 2018/2018D IS A MUCH BETTER MACHINE. KM IS INTRODUCING A NEW 16CPM/18CPM/20CPM AND A 25 CPM THAT IS SUPPOSED TO COME OUT THIS MONTH.

Document Server vs Canon's Mailboxes

I'm curious how others are illustrating the differences between Ricoh's Document Server and Canon's Mailbox. It would be great if we could get responses from reps that lean more to Canon as well as those who are Ricoh competing with Canon.

Used Xerox Systems

Since the new digital 240W has been launched I have had a couple of instances where they were also considering a Xerox system in the $15,000 range. Does anyone have any idea of which model this may be? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Re: Smartnet monitor password

Thanks for the reply Bob. That is the info I have relayed to the customer. However, I know the reset method of which you speak and it is the long way around. This from Ricoh "One of the easiest ways to reset the NIB / NIC of your MFP or printer is to use our "NIB Setup Tool" that comes with our "SmartNetMonitor for Admin" utility. Once you launch Nib Setup Tool and select a device, you can choose the "Nib" menu and select "reboot Nib". You will then be prompted with a screen that has a checkbox

Re: 2238 Color Toner Yields

G'Day all. You will get your yield based on the figures given by Ricoh. However it is important to understand the issues with coverage. Also bear in mind that coverage to useage are not proportional. A square block of colour on a page 100x100=1000, if you double the size of the square you quadruple the coverage 200x200=4000. Also dependant upon what you're printing will make a difference. 5% of text and 5% of graphics are different due to image processing and laying of toner and charge.

Re: bluetooth printing

From what I know bluetooth is a wireless connection. The customer would need some type of Bluetooth device in the PC. If they are running XP, the user would have to install the software for Bluetooth and then let XP find the device. I do not know if there is software from Ricoh for our Bluetooth card. Making it print would be just like any other, select print, and go. Can anyone else clarify and add? Thanx

Re: New 31 PPM color

I have been putting the new 3131 through it's paces and have shown to several customers. Overall print quality is excellent - different from 6513 but obviously true 8 bit color. Should be a good fit to compete with Canon 1180 - ie. good print quality, fiery driven, low cpp and cheap. The juries still out on the durability and reliability with thick stocks, but I'm glad to finally have a higher speed "graphics" machine to offer.

Good Tip for You All

When challanging another digital competitor, I will go the that manufacturers web site and downlaod the print driver and other relevant software. From there I can evaluate the features of the driver and the click throughs. I have found clicks throughs to be very important to the end users, they want the least amount of clicks as possible. Art

Hospitals Move Toward Paperless Age

$30 million to get its three Chicago-area hospitals switched to a full electronic records system that about 6,200 employees began using last year. Mark R. Neaman, the company's president and chief executive office, said the goal is about $10 million in savings in the first year, largely by reducing the data-collection process. Eliminating the time-consuming dictation and transcription process of physicians' patient observations has saved $500,000 alone so far, he said. Neaman said turnaround times

Re: PDF DIRECT PRINT

PDF Dict Print is a new function within the extended features in DeskTopBinder version 3.1.1.1. I have attached a PDF of the features of DTB and whick models support what functionality. According to the compatibility list on in DTB, only the AP400,AP400N,AP600 & CL7100 support PDF Direct Print. By the way, won the BERTL's Best 2004 Spring Awards for the best Desktop Document Management Utility. I use it everyday and find it fantastic to work with. Really hot!!

Re: Used Xerox Systems

It's the refurbished 8830, I have seen them here in Jersey. I have kicked butt every single time. Xerox maintenance is out of whack, and they are talking six weeks for delivery after the order is signed. Do a search on the 8830 here. I have posted the Xerox service price quote along with a spreadsheet comparison. Art

Re: Wide Format & eCabinet

I think that may be the "ticket". So, the customer would have to save the drawing as a pdf and then print or drag to the ecabinet folder of choice? When would you do the indexing after? After or before sending to ecabinet? Thanx, I think this will work, I just need the talk track for my demo on Monday. Art

How about using Voloview? It will allow you to view DWG files and to print them as well. I believe it is a free download. Just an idea

Re: Wide Format & eCabinet

Format (WF) via eCabinet. The printer driver needs to be 100% PCL compatible and the WinPrint driver needs to be printed to directly. What you might be able to do is setup a separate printer in Autocad printing that points to a paperless printer on the eCabinet. The user would have to process a separate print job when they wanted to send a job to the eCabinet. The jobs would be saved as PDFs on the eCabinet. You also should be able to take scanned Tiff files and pass them to the eCabinet

Re: C2338

Yes, the 2238 comes with bypass standard, however it is not an option for doing covers, therefore the paper weight is limited. Great info on the Canon. I don't think my prospects are seriously considering Canon because I contacted them before they were in the market and other vendors are running a "me too" game. Plus I'm offering GEM pricing in order to place some needed color units in my territory.

Thanks for the input. It looks like Canon makes a scanner that will handle this.
