About a month ago I had a call from an existing client to meet about upgrading two of their older copiers that they owned and were under a maintenance agreement. That call came from the new IT Director since the existing IT Director was retiring. That meeting went well and since there were four other A3 printers, service has been exceptional, I priced those two MFP's with acceptable gross profit (I'm not in this business to give **** away because we all have to eat). In addition the when asked "is there any issues or problems we need the address with the new IT Director the answer was "everything great". More to come on this in my next blog.....
Enjoy These great Copier Threads from Five Years Ago This Week!

A great quote from the great orator and statesmen Ben Franklin. As I stated in yesterdays blog, today was all about prepping for four appointments tomorrow. Back in the eighties, copier sales people relied on their knowledge, demo skills and leading the client to the path of making a decision for buying or leasing that copy machine. But, before the demonstration, we outlined what the clients needs were foreach device. For example the client required these features: stapling the ability to zoom

ok, it's got some sizzle, but where is the beef? Practically no one copies anymore, thus the only use I can see is for scanning. I havefiveAlexa's at home, great for playing music and askingquestions. I guess I could ask Alexa"scan documents toRob", and with out noticing Alexa sends those documents to "Bob". I just don't see the applications, can someone enlighten me, maybe someone who was atthe recent Sharp event?

This is key: Make sure you are using the actual driver that you download from the Ricoh webpage. Macs will automatically set up the printer with a generic driver if you don't download the actual driver. The generic driver isn't nearly as detailed as the real driver. This is also something to look out for if you find you are missing features like user codes in the driver.
Thanks Fisher. Actually, this was an application setting. In Adobe X Pro the customer had a Color Profile that was set to something other than Savin MPC3003/C3503. After correcting this, the prints were much better. It's challenging dealing with the nuances of Mac and desktop publishing/graphic arts programs when you don't work in them every day. It's frustrating but customers expect us to be the printing experts and many times aren't familiar with their print settings. They just want it to
days are the equivalent of a small TV. "Mr. prospect, have you ever been to an electronics store where they have dozens of TV's all set to the same channel?

the names ofour birth parents. My name was listed as "A", I thought what the frak is "A", it then dawned on me that I was baby "A" and my twin brother was baby "B". Anyway, after receiving that letter I spent most of the day searching on the internet for clues to learn more about my birth parents. Wow, kinda glad, I got that out there. I know we want to know about copiers, right? Today, I only had one scheduled appointment and that was for the two production units. I was in touch with the client
We have a client who is complaining about the color print quality on their Savin MPC 3003. It doesn't look too bad when printing from Windows but from Mac the colors seem to be off. I am hoping to return to do some troubleshooting soon. However, Mac OS is not my strong point. Does anyone have any guidance on where to start and what to look for? We have found that going into the Advanced printing settings and selecting "Let printer determine colors" seems to improve things but beyond that I'm
Not my strong point either but one of the things I would consider is the difference between PCL and PostScript drivers. The 03 series didn't come with emulated PS...you had to purchase the PS 3 option to have true native Postcript printing capability.
