Annual Envelope Post

Ricoh, Kyocera or any other manufacturer develop a printer that rivals the HP when printing envelopes?My service department believes the HP does a better job because they use a fusing sleeve instead of a fusing roller which displaces the pressure more evenly with more surface area allowing the air to escape better. We are constantly striving to displace competitors' printers and spearhead print management. However, printers are very personal and most of the time if someone has a printer they print

The “New Math” For Managed Print Services

The “New Math” For Managed PrintServices by Print Audit One of the difficulties I’ve always had with MPS as it is marketed today, is the apparent conflict of interest that exists between MPS providers and their customers, under the Cost-Per-Page (CPP) billing model. Let me first point out that CPP is not a requisite of MPS. In the Managed Services space generally, Cost-Per-User or per Seat billing is more common. Nevertheless, most of the businesses I encounter who provide MPS in North America

Re: Scan Speed of ImageRunner 5570

Canons internal site does not have that machine on it anymore. Sometimes they have some legacy stuff but I guess not that far back. My guess is it probably scans around 60 pages per minute being a 55ppm machine. I saw one recently run before we took it out of a clients office and I'd be surprised if it was higher than 60 after seeing it run.
