This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago, The Third Week in September 2003

 

BTA National Event was last week in NYC @ the Stewart Hotel.  With members and vendors I heard there were 345 attendees. That's a great showing!  What was the most popular talked about theme behind the scenes?  Yup, it was the One Rate or Flat Rate.  More to come on this during the week.

Enjoy the threads from 15 years ago this week!

The system prints or copies as many as 101 pages per minute (ppm) and addresses the growing need for advanced finishing, printing, copying and network scanning capabilities in high-volume office environments and low- to medium-volume print shops.

Re: VCGL Format...HELP!!!

I wish I could...but there is alot riding on this. Ricoh is working on it, and if they can do it, it would be worth it. The biggest problem is that they would want to see it in action before they bought...so I was hoping for a decent solution that wouldn't involve cost. Are you still trying to find a converter for it John?

Re: P4P WIDE FORMAT COLOR

There are no laser based wide format color systems out there from the major manufacturers. If there are, they are price prohibitive. What your customer would find would be a couple of systems to meet his or her needs. Oce has a TCS400 system which is a separate scanner, controller and printer. They can scan the color document and direct it to print on the inkjet printer. No doubt an expensive output solution because it is ink based. Probably looking at the $40,000 range for this one.

No plans in the near future for Ricoh to come out with any type of color wide format system. They do have 4 new systems coming in the next 18 months and there is talk of a color scanner option but that is all that I have been able to gleen from our wide format product manager. Also... it looks as if we will have an affordable digital replacement for the FW870 om the next 90 days! Graham

CLOSE EARLY AND OFTEN

Here it is. The Big Moment. You're about to close a Big Sale. And you're sweating Big Bullets. Why? Because you've probably worked for months to get to this point. If you blow it now, you'll end up with a Big Goose Egg. WHAT'S THE problem? Is there really a huge difference between closing a big sale and closing a small one? Experts say, "yes - and no." While the basic process of closing is similar in all sales, one contrast in closing a big sale is the number of people involved in the process

alternative as long as you are talking to someone who cares about expenses. Also keep in mind that not only are they saving administrative costs, but they are also charging their clients for the service which they will probably continue to do. The combination of these two factors may be able to make a case for a 2090 when the volume only necesitates a 2045.

FYI on the 2090/2105 Bate Stamping Solution. You cannot currently have both the Bate Stamping and Scanning available at the same time. They end up being mutually exclusive. Ricoh is trying to create a workaround or resolution.

You need to go to the P4P sight and do a word search. There have been several discussions regarding Bate Stamping. In a nutshell, the 2090 and the 2105 are the only units with Bate Stamping from Ricoh or anyone else. However, we have successfully sold "Bate Stamping" on lessor units using a compination of User Stamp and Page Numbering. The best way to accomplish this is to get a sample from them and then replicate it it for them on the 2045. Don't try to do it for the first time in their office
