This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago (Last Week of December 2004)

 

It's been a crazy week so far. Christmas hitting in the middle of the week is not good for any sales cycle. I finished my year on Monday and then acquired a cold I've been fighting for three days.  The wife and I have a grand daughter due any day and we then have new years.  For all of those still working it to the end just keep in mind if you don't ask you don't get!

Enjoy these threads from 15 years ago this week!

Sales Secret Revealed

Sales Secret Revealed I liked the system he was selling, but when he talked about the service warranty, I mentioned that I heard his service techs could not come fix problems over the weekend if the system went down. He firmly said, No, youre wrong, we work on the weekends! and then went on to talk about other issues. Having been properly chastised, I chose not to contribute to the rest of the conversation. What went wrong?

That's because Ricoh have a very secure MFP, one that needs knowledge to use. This is the only machine that allows Windows or LDAP Authentication in addition to what has been previously 'standard'. Also seperate administrators can control the machine functions: machine, users, doc server, network. Therefore you can now have four different administrators, each with their own username and password. By the way there is another standard account: username: supervisor password: blank This one can

Re: AP3800/CL7000/7100 Color banding

Check out the service manuals as there is alot of useful information there. Reduce the DV motor speed 2 by 0.4% for all colour modes. This should remove the problem. It's caused by buckle becuase of a different speed of the transfer belt and registration roller. The reg roller is driven by the colour dev motor.

Just following up on the last point. Glossy paper by its nature is not purous. Therefore toner sits on top of the paper instead of being 'squeezed' in. Therefore it will be easy to rub the toner off. If you increase fuser temperature to compensate then you bring new problems for all other media, and death to the fuser.

The sales professional should have ask if weekend service was important to the propects business and why to gain a greater understanding of what is important to the customer. Then agree the the concerns the customer has are valid and then share how he/she (the sales professional) can allieviate the concerns for the the prospect. And then see if there are any ohter concerns and repeat until all are taken care of and then take the order. JG
