This Week in the Copier/Office Equipment Industry 10 Years Ago Third Week of January 2006

It's Super Bowl Week!  Denver or North Carolina? I'm picking Denver because of experience and their awesome defense.   Take some time and review the threads from ten years ago.

The customer needs to be registered and I don't know how much they (NCPG) are going to care. For them, the more members, the better.

Re: SR90/GBC Streampunch

Jay ·
I had a lots of problems with the GBC unit when it first came out. LOTS of problems. But after we got it all ironed out it has been running great. The GBC rep at vision admitted there we some problems but he said the latest version has eliminated the problems. He was willing to give us one to test for 30 days to prove it. We have an SR90 on the same system it has been great. We have a number of SR90s out in the field without any major issues. If your customer is going to run a lot of...

I may be opening a can of worms here but I got a call from Polek&Polek. I can't remember which one they have but whichever one they have, they were willing to send me one for 30 days no risk/no cost. I don't know if that offer is open to anyone or just people who do business with them.

On most of the products you can program something into Program 10 and then go in and have the machine auto start in program 10 mode. I'd check into that.

Re: New Xerox (Fuji) Wide Format

Re: FM Audit and other USB discovery devices

Neal ·
I've had the opportunity to use FM Audit. While it is nice to have the info collected it doesn't take the place of a true site survey. It does and has missed printers. But that could be because it is an appliance that you really need to have a good handle on to use.

I have seen the same thing and called tech support but no one has an answer. I’ve leave e-mails with Ratio, and then I get a call from Ricoh telling me not to talk to them. With over 60 units in the field, it would make me to get an answer to this minor problem.

We have been using Print Audit "Print Key" and it works great. Plug it in, provide the IP Range for what devices you want scanned (most IT support people know this off the top of their heads) and then let the "Key" search. With in just a minute or two the results are downloaded to the key and you return to the office. At the office you can get some nice reporting informatation on the environment and then position your offering. FYI - we aren't using it as much as I would like, but where we...

Re-installing the software seems to work for a permanent fix. Sometimes it's just a matter of checking the Reader on in the Properties tab...An IT guy at a company where this occured told me a "de-bugging" program they run on weekends throughout their network may cause the readers to turn off.

Re: Cost Savings for Document Managament

Art, you are right on! soft costs are a huge factor that many companies do not look at. the question then becomes, how do you get to the point where you are finding those soft costs? frankly, purchasing agents don't care, department heads...maybe. who is it that will focus on "big picture" items? who are the innovators in a company? the out of the box thiners? And can make your finding out about everything possible? High end assessments,like Printwise/Pagetelligence, are invaluable to...

Re: Feature Article for February "BuyerZone.com Friend or Foe"?

In reading the article one thing came to mind. What is different? By that I mean that I am convinced that what so many sales reps and their dealerships are doing little more than that already. It amazes me when I am involved with my reps in deals today where the other companies and their reps have done little homework and simply ask two questions...how much you spending and when you want it? So many today are simply "Walmarting" their product. Going in with the lowest price and hoping for...

Re: CFG & SSL Reader problem with Plotbase

Okay. I found that when adequate time was allowed for Plot Base to close before reopening the readers opened 100% of the time. However, when insufficient time was allowed I received an error saying that Plot Base was already running and the CFG & SSL readers failed to open 100% of the time. So, it's necessary to allow ample time for Plot Base to shut down before opening again. Also, if the reader is closed when shut down it will not open when reopened. I talked with Mike from Ratio (the...

quote: I talked with Mike from Ratio (the software developer) today and he said to also check in the C:Spool directory for the cfg and ssl readers. There should be only two files in them; in.use and default.ssl If there are others such as prn or other unsupported files this may jam things up. This is why reinstalling the software may correct the problem. FYI reinstalling the software won't delete unsupported files in this path. I was fighting this issue, Uninstalled and reinstalled the...

Re: Novell and Ricoh MFP's

Our technicians are Novell Certified. I'll forward your question to them and see what transpires. In fact, I will be installing a 3025 SPF as soon as it arrives from Ricoh, and it will be on a Novell network. We placed the order Monday; so, it will probably be here one day next week. When is your meeting?

Re: Driver Installation Problem

On the server you need to install the inf file for other operating systems. The D2 board is the interface PCI on the server that the Ricoh connects to. From the workstation browse for the “tools” folder on the server and you should see the winprint driver. SNMP only needs to be turned on at the server.
