This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The First Week of March 2003

 

Geesh, can I start?  For those not in the copier industry fifteen years ago you would know nothing about Jim Ivy from Ricoh.  I don't want to rehash the past, but check out the links and you'll read how an elite executive was arrested. I don't even want to talk about what he did.  Happy to have seen him go directly to JAIL!

Absolutely! My comments were not directed at this great site but at Ricoh Corp. I was trying to determine if any of the other Ricoh dealers get information from their DSM/MASM/etc. We, at the end of last year (2002) put over 100 Ricohs into an account. We haven't seen anyone from Ricoh (sales side) at our dealership in well over a year. And we were awarded the AA B/W Dealer of the Year for Ricoh in 2001! To top it off I think it is really strange to not have communcae from the 'upper crust

Paper Insertion from MAC OS 10.2 Jaguar

And they like the rep. So I have to at least come up with a solution that is easier than what the Kyocera Mita 6330 does if I can't send the job from a print driver. In thinking through various ways to accomplish this job with a Ricoh Aficio 1035, I don't want to rule out any options with a

Increasing color profits?

, developer, oil, drum units, etc. you find in the customer’s supply room belong to you, the dealer. Even if you are not the re-selling dealer, those supplies are yours. The customer’s CPC rate only pays for copier/prints that are used. Toward the end of any lease or service agreement, monitor the amount of supplies that are sent to the customer. Train your staff to politely instruct your customers there is a limit to the amount of supplies that can be shipped. Theoretically, under a cost per copy

Imbedded PageCounter 100?

·
First of all, for those who may not know, PageCounter 100 is a device similar to a Danyl or Abaddon copy accounting device except this will send copy data and integrate it with print data collected by Ricoh's (Equitrac's) PCSM - Printer Cost and Security Manager. The net result is that the end user does not have to go around and get copy counts and then manually combine them with print counts collected by PCSM. I just found out that there is an imbedded version that is going to be launched in

Re: Print Controller for 551

·
I think it will work! The firmware files for both controllers are the same (0.58). I have found one strange bug in the 1055 driver (definitley the driver, not the controller) and used a 700 driver to work around it with no side effects. I have submitted the bug to Ricoh to see what they say about it. Once I hear from them, I'll post some info on it here. I'll try to catch a 551 or 700 going through refurb and install one of these on it to see. Thanks! Lee

Re: 1224/1232 Maintenance Pricing

From: Ted Kochman (tedkochman@msn.com) Date: Tuesday, March 04, 2003 05:03 PM According to Ricoh's RMAP Full Maintenance, under Combo w/Ricoh Supplies: cpc is either 0.0145 or 0.0135. The note below states: "Combo includes Black Toner only; Color Toner not included". I gather that you can bill them as low as 0.0135 for everything excluding the color toner, which you would sell them. Or you could be creative and run the maintenance yourself, bill them a cpc for color clicks and include the toner.

Re: 1045 and Scan to Email

If you need the speed of the 1045 for the copy side than you're stuck with Global or SR Pro, if you can slow things up a bit, and maybe sell the idea of a little color to make up for the speed differential than try selling the new 1232 with a print/scan option. This will scan to e-mail just like the 1060. We got a 1224 and 1232 in the showroom this week and they seem pretty solid.

1045 and Scan to Email

Other than Global Scan, there is no way to scan to email with this product. Am I correct? Also to the Ikon people and other dealers with Canon. The IR500 can scan to email but is it expensive like the 1045 with Global or it more like the 1060 with the printer/scanner option. Need Info ASAP Thanks all
