I always like to start these Christmas blogs with a small story about Christmas tradition in other countries.
Christmas for Irish people, who are Catholics, lasts from Christmas Eve to the feast of Epiphany on January 6th, which some Irish people call 'Little Christmas'. Epiphany isn't now widely celebrated in Ireland.
There is an old tradition that in some Irish houses (although now not many), people put a tall, thick candle on the sill of the largest window after sunset on Christmas Eve. The candle is left to burn all night and represents a welcoming light for Mary and Joseph. read the rest here
This blog will mark the eleventh blog that I've posted over the years for "What I Want for Christmas" from Ricoh. Over the years I've asked Ricoh to supply me with new products, and services that could help me sell more Ricoh stuff! That's all I want is some cool new stuff for Christmas.
Geesh, what do I want this year, hmmmm…..
1. Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I still want a Ricoh envelope printer and not the over priced EnPress from Xante.
2. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. I want a 36 inch color wide format MFP that uses color toner, and none of the wishy washy clogging gel ink technology. More and more clients are asking for color for the AEC market.
3. Thanks so much for the A4 MP C501SP that staples! However the price for the hardware and supplies is really high. I'd like A REAL toner based A4 color MFP that staples and folds. Giving me the MP C501SP is like a one year membership to the Jelly of the Month Club.
4. I really, really want one of these because my competition is killing it! How about getting me that color A3 ink based MFP?
5. I'm hoping you can add single pass scanning to the Ricoh MPC 2504 & 2004 series. So many clients are now just focused on scanning!
6. Can you please add a new app to our MFP's that will allow clients to scan legacy photo's/pics/brochures and directly upload them to Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter?
7. Here's a great idea, how about built in embedded scanning software for indexing/metadata and folder search integration as standard feature in all of our copiers.
8. This would really help me in the field, I'd like to have more aggressive cost per page with all of the Ricoh printers.
9. I could really use A4 black and color MFP's that have stapling, while you're at it can you also give us faster black A4's. Maybe 75ppm - 90ppmm please!
10. My next to last wish is that you can bring us tri-fold feature for all of our color MFP's.
11. Dagnabit, I've asked for this for quite some time and you've never listened. I want a wide format copier/printer/scanner with an automatic document feeder! It only has to hold 20 pages. If you can do it for fax machine you can surely make it for the wide formats.
Boy oh boy that's a lot of stuff to look for!
