Can you remember what was hot from ten years ago.  I can't, but I do keep a journal of every account that did not purchase from me over the years.  If you ask why would you do something like that?  It's simple soon or later they will need to lease or purchase again, in addition you know the players and most likely the reason why you lost the first time.

Enjoy these awesome threads from 10 years ago this week.

It was announced on Friday (10/1/10) that IKON will fold into RBS and that the IKON name will be eliminated, with additional layoffs on the horizon. This could be the first in a series of moves to place an even heavier focus on Direct operations, which could be followed by the Lanier or Savin brand also being eliminated by 4/1/11. Has anyone else heard that the IKON name is being eliminated and RBS will be the sole 'Direct' channel?

I think the IKON name will remain until 4-1-2011. At that point it should be just Ricoh no IKON. Personally I feel it is definatly time to be intergrated.

Re: Selling against Xerox 5675 and 5775

Guest ·
Thanks but I was hoping to find out the reason why the Xerox 5675 is so much cheaper than the Xerox 5775 - Is it higher volume capacity?

Re: Selling against Xerox 5675 and 5775

·
The big difference between the two is the 5675 is discontinued and the 5775 is active. Same duty cycle and paper capacity with some controller changes. They are offered in different configurations so it could be you are comparing different configurations, but I would bet that whoever is selling the 5675 is just motivated to get the old model out the door.

The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

The Week in Copiers Ten Years Ago

the last week of September 2010

The push is on and the last quarter of the year is upon us.  Who will be the winners and the losers? After speaking with a few more Office Equipment Dealers this week I'm encouraged with the rate of transformation that is taking place.  Dealers are not waiting for things to happen they are making things happen.  More and more dealers are adopting new services and products for their clients.  The question becomes when do the copier manufacturers become irrelevant to the Office Office Equipment dealer?

I also believe there will be we'll see at least a 25% drop in the amount of people that our industry employees moving forward.  Smaller, and nimble could be a good thing!

The Week in Copiers 10 Years Ago This Week 2010

There was an interesting topic on the forums 10 years ago

haha "You Wanted the Multifunctional Copier When?"

In this time of COVID I've found that prospecting by email and Linkedin is far better than making calls.  Try and think of it this way, when you're at work you don't want to be interrupted with taking a call. Thus you'll let everything go to voice mail unless that phone number is one that you know.  Emails are are opened all day long and most will read them at a later time.  One of the reasons the subject line is so important.

If the machine is printing a fax, the user will be able to copy the document, meaning it will scan the originals and after the fax has been received the copy process will start, same is true of printing to the device while it is printing a fax.

As Bill W told me this AM, maybe the view from 30,000 feet was something Espe wasn't about to fall in love with. I thought this was a dynamic move for Ricoh, they needed someone like Espe at the head of the wheel. Now, I'm thinking something is drastically wrong with either the current business model or the Ikon/Ricoh thingy. Time will tell. Would like to hear from others on this!

When we decline to return a copier at our cost due to a competitor not doing this at their expense, we do suggest to our former customer two moving companies they can call to pick up the equipment. Of course, we will keep in polite contact over the next few years, as we known when the lease will expire next time.

Re: At the end of term, who pays to ship the copier back to the leasing company?

Often the same Decision Maker is not around 3-5 years from now, so you will have to remind the new DM about the extra freight costs they incurred with their present copier vendor. Plus this time around you will take care of that hassle and expense for them by a line item in your new quotation.

Coming from the lease finance area of the copier industry I know this always ends up in an arguement. so we use a simple Rule If its End of Term (EOT) and the customer is upgrading we take the cost if the deal is at EOT, the customer is returning and going to a competitor, then the customer eats the cost

Most sales reps do not fully explain to the customer, their end of term lease obligations. It is the customer's obligation and expense to return the equipment to the leasing company. Most dealers will take care of this expense, if they flip one of their own copiers into a new copier. Many dealers will not take care of this expense if a competitor flips one of their machines.
