VCGL Format...HELP!!!

·
For the 470w, I have come across a client who needs to use the VCGL format which is a Xerox based format for drawings. Has anyone encountered this before or even better yet, solved how to print this format?!? Any help would be appreciated. I have been working with Ricoh and their solution is very costly and not 100% certain it can work. Thanks!

Re: Xerox Solutions

DigiPath is Xerox's software for editing and controlling (scanned) jobs for the DocuTech platform, much like the recent Job-Q-editor software from ATI/Ricoh is for the 2090/2105 family. Docushare is a (simple) knowledge sharing software, which holds scanned pages and make them searchable and shareable. The latter is a good marketing selling point, helping Xerox delivering a broad soloutionbase towards the customer. It is not very sophisticated however.

Canon Leasing! They will take any machine. I will get you the info. We had a new startup company and DLL, Fleet, and Ricoh Leasing said no. We sent the info into Canon Leasing and they said OK. Go figure. We are leasing a Ricoh Machine through Canon Leasing. We have already let Ricoh (a.k.a. DLL) know. Boy were they red faced.

Closing Pointers

Handling objections is a critical part of selling. But you still need to know how to close. Here are some pointers: Closing is usually the culmination of a delicate, intricate process that involves: • Listening closely throughout the sales process to detect the point at which the close is starting to occur. • Making it easier for the prospect to buy from you than from the competition. • Addressing every objection. • Stressing the value-added benefits of dealing with you. • Making it clear that

Re: VCGL Format...HELP!!!

Thanks for your help on this...Kim and I work together. Unfortunately, we can't get a solution that doesn't involve a costly solution from Ricoh. Anyone know of converters that would convert the VCGL to a HPGL format?

Re: 1105 GBC Finisher

I have seen a picture of it, it is hush, hush at Ricoh about this product for some reason. We need to put pressure on our DSM's about this product. Call them and email them, they need to sell just like us. I hope it gets released soon. Art

Frankly, if Canon Leasing will take the junk, send it to them. It may help us in the future if the junk goes down hill. Think about it.

Re: Minolta now sellin KIP StarPrint Series Wide Format

Is this just a printer for printing microfilm? I have a few suspects that use microfilm and the one draw I had was that their printer for it was going to go bad and there would be no replacement. Any word on compatibility with other microfilm systems (of whose name I cannot think of)?

You don't lose ALL of the functionality with the PS driver, just the Doc Server and Locked print options. All the finishing is there, it is just a little tricky to get to.

Re: Continued 1224 stuff...

I have a 1232 (C3210 Savin) in a clients since beginning of June. So far they have averaged 13,000 B&W per month ... so far so good (I have nighmares about it though) ... I have told them several times to move the B&W volume to the Aficio 551, they can't seem to get the staff to take the 20 second walk to it though. We have had to empty the color waste toner container twice since June, I think they have only done about 14,000 color developments.
