10 Awesome Tips for a Great MFP/Copier Demo

Re: Adobe PostScript vs. Emulation

·
Czech is correct: there are Ricoh printer models with non-Adobe PostScript as well as 3rd-party Adobe controllers for Kyocera, Konica Minolta and Toshiba (each of whom have their own emulations.) My question is: why is "true" Adobe PostScript requested (especially in 2013 -- HP has been shipping an emulation for 15 years and is still #1, no?)

Re: Ricoh ICE (Intergrated Cloud Environment)

Maybe I did something wrong during setup. Ours in our demo room is incredibly slow. Just to get to the URL for the home screen takes a while. Getting to dropbox app (or any others) and logging in and making selections takes so long it still looks like this is in development. I must be doing something wrong. Our internet connection is good and I don't know why the MFP is so slow. Do I need to add something? Memory, GB ethernet?

Played with trying to set it up in our showroom. First of all it took over a week and several emails to get a code to enter into the machine when the documentation claims you will get the code within an hour. Fought with it and the piss poor instructions for a couple of hours. Gave up. Can't sell something where the support from Ricoh is that poor. Moved on.
