This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago (First Week of September 2004)

 

Wow, I read a thread about the Aficio FX16, from what I remember that was half digital and half analog. Does anyone else remember these. They could copy, print, fax and scan.

Enjoy these threads from ten years ago this week!

Initial Fees for Connecting Equipment

·
Just curious, we discussed a couple of weeks ago how we were dealing with charges for being called back to reconnect or help customers with connected system after the intitial set-up. How are your dealerships handling the intitial set-up? Do you charge a flat fee, a graduated fee based on # of workstations? Do you charge to put faxes and printer drivers online?

1) The best way from a company point of view is to bill by the hour. If you’re just installing a print or fax driver on one or two PC’s, this should not take long. However when you get into scanning to folder or email, you need settings that some customer have know idea what you’re talking about. This can take time, calling an ISP or outside IT person, passwords… 2) As art said, we sale blocks of time to the customer included in the sale. Let them know up front you have x amount of time for

I haven't done a wireless setup, but for network, it was plug and play. I did have a problem the last time when I could not access the printer from the control panel. It showed up on the network and could print, but the 1515mf would not see it. Come to find out, the firmware card was not properly seated. It evidently had come loose during shipping.

Does anyone know how to set the fax up to print a journal automatically once a week? I also need some guidance on using restricted access codes and making them work. I set some up, but the machine doesn't seem to use them. Thanks.

Re: Backorders! Why?

Jim - I only get this report when I scream loud enough to our corporate office about backorders (like I've been screaming about the 240W). I will make available every time I see one. I think...our purchasing agent gets this info from our East Region Allocations people at Ricoh - I would think they would provide this info to anybody on an allocations list for backorders?

Re: Backorders! Why?

I agree! Why keep us in the dark about back orders. Having a list like this enables us to plan our selling cycles plus tell the customer in advance of a potential back order. Brad, would be great if you could get this from time to time. Art
