470W "is the cost to dealers too high?"

Guest ·
Some of you may have noticed the recent "sweepstakes" promo for the 470W. It is an "OK" promo, seems likes 240W sales have slowed the 470W to a crawl. The 240W prints @ 4 pages a minute compare to 6 for the 470W, and yes the 470W can handle a higher volume per month and has a dual roll feeder standard and also has a better stacking system. However, how can Ricoh justify the cost of the 470W now?, based on DMAP level 1 pricing the 470W ia almost twice the cost of the 240W and it does not give

Date: Friday, January 07, 2005 11:27 AM John a real nice simple alternative would be to place the CL7100 printer and add the IS300e scanner. You get scan to applications: e-mail, SMB, FTP and you also get the ability to scan directly to the CL7100 for output (I guess we would call it copying). The only limitation is we cannot have the fax option ... then again Konica Minolta does not have a fax option on their C350 system either. Our advantage is, you only need 1 scanner and you could place

Here's one I saw today that could happen anywhere: On a 240, customer was trying to send 18" wide x 12" long prints thru PlotClient WIN. There was an 18" roll in the roll feeder. Auto Roll Select was on, Auto Rotate was on, but copies kept printing out on an 18 x 18 sheet...the image size was correct, but depending on where it was put (ie: top center, middle center, ect) the sheet remained 18 x 18 with blank white areas.

This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Last Week of December 2009)

The time was about 4:30PM on the 23rd of this month.  I had just left the office and was on my way home after submitting three orders that day. I had another verbal on an order and was waiting on docs to come to me. If I did receive the docs I could process from the home office.  It was the end of a very good year. I had a short chat with my VP of Sales in the car about the day. A great comment was made about my "drive" and that meant a lot especially at this point in my sales career.

Re: PS3 Emulation vs Genuine Adobe PS3

I brought this topic up earlier, and it was a genuine concern for the prospect, as they are 90% Mac, and their current Canon systems have PS3 Emulation which slows the systems down. However, being that adding the genuine PS3 to each system averaged $1,000 per machine, and the price difference between the MP C5000 & MP C6000, they decided that the pain wasn't great enough to pay an extra $200 per month and went w/ a combination of Konica-Minolta color & Kyocera b/w gear.

geesh! Hard to over come $197 per month, but easier to over $3.00 per day. Were you in the incumbent or was KM? Was KM a dealer or direct? In this case, I would have tried to lead with two units, like you suggested the mono copier and the color printer. However, I would also have asked these two questions: How often do you copy and original? Most places do not copy that often and if you can get them to agree to this, then you have a chance of leading them to an A4 copy solution and an A3 print

Danka was the incumbent, so the Konica-Minolta dealer brought the most aggressive pricing possible to the deal. I tried to go down the road of copy volume versus print volume, but since the vast majority of the volume is run in their school, most of the volume is copying, and they hope to start scanning more. I do like your thinking of pairing A4 MFPs with A3 printers and vice-versa for other commercial accounts, provided that their aren't any space constrictions. Additionally, the church and

Since they are Mac users, I have consistently emphasized the fact that both KM systems use PS3 Emulation vs Genuine Adobe PS3, but considering the price gap between our 60ppm & 50ppm color

Great input. However, the customer was looking for a blended CPP for the b/w and color service, and as a result, the CPP was extremely aggressive on both fronts.

Strictly looking at the difference between the MP C6000 and MP C5000, you made the right choice to go with the higher speed model at those volumes. Obviously there is a significant difference in HW price (apples and oranges), but the MP C6000 should have a lower CPP that makes up that difference. Assuming a BW click that is 2 mils cheaper on the MP C6000 and a color click that is a penny cheaper, that equates to a savings of $160, making the monthly delta only $40 vs $200. Am I missing

happier with the Canon's than Ricoh's but Ricoh is not a bad system and IMO you will be much more happy than with the Kyocera. I do not know how people continue to be single line Kyocera dealers and keep customers happy. We had Kyocera for a few years and then canned them. From a service standpoint I feel pretty confident in saying that they send out the bulletins and updates probably about as well as everyone else. I don't hear our VP/Service or Techs complaining about things like that.

Re: Scaling, Can this be accomplished?

Jason is correct in how to resize the drawing. It should also be to scale and I would suggest as he said to let them measure with a ruler and confirm. As to highlighting a certain area of the document and printing only that portion, that can be done in the scantools by scanning the document as a tiff and opening up the editor. Once open you can crop and save as the new document which contains only the portion you wish to print. Just go to add an entry in plotbase and find the new tiff file

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (First Week of November 2014)

As with everyday some of my time is spent on Linkedin.  Today I was part of a conversation where a third party provider for our industry had stated the data (facts) they have does not support the notion of honest reps. In a nutshell that person was stating that we (copier reps) oversell (he used overprescribed) our accounts for MFP's.  I took offense to that and posted some repsonses on Linkedin. You can go to my Linkedin profile and you'll see what I'm talking about.

What ticks me off even more is the fact that Linkedin in a public space and you knows who is reading what.  There's an old saying, "believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you read"

If you're busy tell me, if you don't like me then tell me, if you bought somewhere else then tell me.  Don't leave me hanging because I didn't leave you hanging when you scheduled an appointment, needed a proposal or had questions

Sorry - I haven't check in in awhile. We had installed beta firmware that allowed simultaneous usage of the interposer and the streampunch, but removed it because we thought it was causing other problems. We now think those problems are caused by another issue, known to GBC and Ricoh but no release date offered for the fix. We may re-install the firmware to further test its performance if we get the other issue resolved. Ron

Smart Net Monitor for Admin

I've sold a Savin C3424 and started networking it for a law firm. They want to bill clients for the copys they make on their behalf. Smart Net Monitor for Admin works on at least 2 of their computers, but not on the key operators. I believe this may have to do with the Windows Service Pack 2 upgrade. It seems like MS has implemented some new firewalls. Does anyone know if there is a solution to this problem? I can ping the machine and I can use Web Image Monitor, but cannot use SmartNet. Thanks

Re: MICR Toner for the AP4510

Incorrect. MICR toner can be used in dual component machines, like the Hitachi DDP90. Don't forget that copy process to a point forces/ pushes toner from the DV roller to the drum. And we've all seen machine faults where the DV has been pulled from the DV unit. However MICR is specialist and not currently supported by Ricoh.

Re: MICR Toner for the AP4510

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the AP4510 a dual componant system? (toner and Developer) If so, it is my understanding that micr is out of the question. Only printers that can use micr toner are mono-componant. The mag roller in the dev. unit makes it impossible to use magnetic toner. If any one has info to the contrary please reply.

I think you're right Jomamma. This may be where we have to draw the line and say, "hey, you have to contact your IT person. It works fine on all of the other PC's." But, I think this may be an ongoing thing. MS updates their OS and Ricoh has to create a firmware update and the cycle repeats. A good reason for customers to purchase network support agreements from copier companies. But, Ricoh has to get on the ball. If we can have a solution to offer, it's an easy sell.
