Re: Got A Situation! What would ou do?

You should be able to go to a broker and get another 50ppm Toshiba for dirt cheep. I'd swap the machine out or fix the existing one. No way would I roll the lease on the customer. Just be honest with the customer and do the right thing by them. One call to a competitor for a quote and you are toast. Make it a positive in the customer's mind. The customer will respect you more in the long run if youdo the right thing. Roll the lease and risk losing the customer forever.

Re: Got A Situation! What would ou do?

First what was the terms of the first lease? What was the payment? How many months left? When you leased the used Toshiba did you check new or used on the lease? Fisher is right take care of the customer and they will take care of you. Yo need to build that trust and respect back up because right now the customer thinks he got a lemon and you do not care. If he believes that you need to act fast otherwise he will shop you and that will be the end of that customer. Honesty is always the best

What are your options that you have to chose from? What brands are you authorized to service? Are you an independent dealer? How would you get a Sharp if you are not a dealer? Can you service Sharp MX series? At 8K per month they really don't need a 45ppm unit. That would be 25-35ppm range.

Re: dispatching calls

Old Glory ·
When you say "over the phone" are you referring to actual voice communication? I ask because our techs receive their marching orders via company issued Blackberrys but they are synced with eAutomate. The calls are closed in the system with the key strokes they enter on their Blackberrys. In other words, the calls are input by dispatch and closed by techs without any duplication of efforts or voice communication. At least that is my understanding from a salesreps perspective.

I guess one of those professional attributes I've developed is the ability to listen to the client along with understanding what type of person they are. I only leaned this a few years ago that clients can be designated into colors.  However years ago I learned through listening along with trial and error many years ago on how to meet the client at their level.  Meaning I moved my personality to theirs so we could be better at communicating.

He then goes on to tell us that no one is tracking or managing service costs or supply costs, and that Kyocera can manage a company’s whole fleet of printers to keep costs down. Translated into generic terms, this is a core principle of strategic sourcing. Doing a proper spend analysis of a given category to know where all the money is

I would think that it makes the best sense to break the company into pieces and sell individual divisions. The print production division (Nexpress, etc..) would be enticing for Xerox, Ricoh, KM or even Canon. I think Ricoh is not in a position to buy. I think KM would make sense, but I think Canon would be a very strong player. They used to relable the Digimasters (not sure if they still do) and the Nexpress would fill the whole abover thier current color production gear.

My understanding is that the MFP "clicks" every time it measures X length (based on single/double click) pass the registration roller. That being the case, the banner would charge for whatever length passes, so (assuming single click 11x17) if you print a 34" banner, the MFP will click 2 times. Interestingly, if you print a 42 inch banner, the meter should click 2.47 times. Those fractions aren't visible, but the technician I spoke with assured me the machine remembers them and adds them up

Personally I think it's pretty awesome to quote a price on the spot is the client wants to know the price for 240K of pages at .0075 per page.

What else did you get really good at besides being the copier professional?

If you sell on any state or federal contracts and you are an independent dealer then you know you must provide the start-up supplies for any of these units you sell minus the printers.

However, the MPC6501,7501 units have a start-up cost of $1,400-$1,500. Since the dealer has to

It is interesting. Based on the figures they provided, their cost per page is ~2 cents. I find this hard to believe. Either a large amount of the 200k prints is done on a very efficient device or they are printing pages with very low coverage. They have more 1102w's than any other device. at 5% coverage, that device costs $0.0425 just for toner. I'm doubtful the total expense can be half that.

As you have already speculated, there are many different ways to charge for MPS. Our most common is CPC(includes consumables, maintenance kits, service and helpdesk) with a minimum based on projected volumes determined by a print assessment. We also do deals that are not CPC, but the customer pays per cartridge for toner, and everything else is covered under a base charge per machine. Again, you must understand their volume for it to be profitable. I have seen some pretty convoluted billing

Any opinions on how these have sold historically and how they have fared in the last year or so as they become old? Also, does it seem like they are being replaced or just discontinued?

Here is how to sell against MY SHARP. I have worked for Sharp many years. First the dealer has to build the site. It is quite limited and there are a handful of features that can be displayed for each function. Although it is a cool feature the reality is that it is barely used. I have set many of these up in the past but on follow up they were not used. It is a nice catch and talk track but should not be a deal breaker. You can also view MY SHARP video for free right on the LCD panel

The MFP was just clicking as it was instructed from the application, but the application was just doing what the file told it to and the file had been made by the MFP. We just agreed to a credit (since they hadn't used color toner in making the print) and changed their drivers back to defaulting to black.

We default every color device we install to black & white. Are we losing some revenue on CPP contracts as a result? Of course we are. Is this money the client would spend if they were not covered under a toner-inclusive agreement? No, because there would be no black and white documents that would accidentally use color toner. If part of our value proposition is to help a client reduce the expenses associated with managing their printing systems by creating a strategic outsourcing agreement

Thanks for the feedback. txeagle24, I'm a little confused by this statement: there would be no black and white documents that would accidently use color toner. This sounds like you're talking about process black (which normally clicks as black). What I'm talking about is if the printing is not defaulted to B&W when the customer prints mapquest or something with a hyperlink it prints and clicks color. This is regardless of whether they have a toner inclusive agreement or not. If the document

I think we're talking about the same thing in different terms to a certain extent just using different examples. Do the newer printers/MFP's still print black using all colors if "Color" is selected in the driver? If so, then you're right that they would spend the same regardless of the type of contract. If only the black cartridge is used to print black even if "Color" is selected in the driver, then they would spend far more on a toner-inclusive agreement than if they were not under contract

printing per month? We've always seen problems with envelopes and the Ricoh/Savin hardware (as well as many laser printers). For the time and frustration, when our customers are looking for something to run a bunch of envelopes on I'd recommend a $50 inkjet anyday over an MFP. It's just the right tool for the job. No pressure, no fusing, minimal page coverage. But, you sacrifice image quality and the waterproof of laser.

Re: PCL Print Error

Illegal media source simply means that the requested paper tray was not present on the device. Most likely the printer lost communication with a paper tray and rebooting the printer restored it. PCL5 will give a lot fewer errors (at the tradeoff of lesser image quality, some users won't notice or care).

Ricoh seems to always be on the conervative side of volumes, can be looked at in two different ways. 1. Ricoh machines are not built as well as KM thus they have a lower volume rating. 2. Konica Minolta's numbers are inflated and they are over stating the truth. Ahhh, marketing....we can look at the KM this way also, take average volume of 40K per month which seems to me way to hgh for a 36ppm system and then multiply by 60 months, that'll be 2.4 million pages.

I agree with Art for the most part. If the person you are giving he items to is the person "paying the bills" then there is no issue no matter what the item is. If you are giving small ($200) items like cameras and such, still not an issue. When you start talking about giving a person large items ($1,000+) unbeknownst to the owner (or shareholders) and including them into the copier, that is 100% unethical, no question.

The first Copier that I was trained to repair (in Manhattan) was the 3M Alpha Secretary II. It came with a pair of wooden tongs, and you had to have an empty metal waste basket next to it so when the paper caught fire if it jamed under the toaster unit, you used the wooden tongs to transfer it to the solid metal waste basket where it could burn out "safely". Definitely a pre OSHA device, and these were sold into offices all over NYC.
