This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago

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

I didn't have to do it but I did.  Last week I sent an email to all the sales managers at Stratix with a cut and paste of Section 179 web site.  Hoping that they would share will all of their sales peeps.  It's crazy that when I speak about Section 179 most business owners have no clue what it is or how it can affect their profit margins.

Enjoy these awesome threads from 5 years ago this week!

Re: Perspective on Dealer Exclusive Lines (e.g. Lexmark BSD)

So, some of these may be a little off the wall. Dealer exclusive product naming (how different should it be?) I've always thought thatwhen the dealer bought the equipment from the manufacturerthat the dealer should be able to "brand" the equipment with it's own name. I was told years ago, that there was a line in the dealer agreements that would not allow this. Thus, I could call my Ricoh MP C5503 a Genesis 3055, and I could make my own marketing pieces.

Xerox declares the end of paper (again)

The first time Xerox announced the extinction of paper to the world was 1984. What it had to back up its claim was a concept of graphical computing; an idea of representing the documents office use every day visually so that what you see is what you get. At that time, the company invited me to its exhibit of "The Paperless Office." But in my published story that fall, I noted that Xerox was beaten to market by as much as a few years.

Perspective on Dealer Exclusive Lines (e.g. Lexmark BSD)

Hey Gang, I'm hoping for some insights on Dealer preferences for BTA/Dealer-exclusive lines from the traditional printer/IT channel guys (e.g. Lexmark BSD, OKI MPS/BTA, etc). Growing within the "copier" channel is of course a major priority for these vendors, and certainly something that the other printer guys (specifically HP Xerox A4) are keeping an eye on. As I said, I'm hoping for some insights on what you like/don't like or would like to see from the dealer-exclusive programs. For example

We went down this road with Oki awhile back and it worked pretty well but at the time, Ricoh was very deficient on color products and Oki had some compelling MPS strategies. They had uniquely branded products and specially keyed supplies as well as extremely aggressive dealer channel pricing. We had some success following the initial launch but I can't remember the last time we sold an OKI. It's just too hard to keep up with all the changes happening within our primary brand to try to maintain

Is anyone selling or bundling ICE? At first glance it is cool to be able to scan to cloud apps like Dropbox, Evernote, etc... but then, it seems like it is more time consuming to enter the information at the MFP. What about Print Cloud? Does anyone have any customers using this or Google Cloud Print (separate from ICE)? Are there additional costs for ICE aside from the Browser, necessary memory and service obligations (print cloud and other apps may be paid services)? Thanks for any input!

Yes, I changed everything at the printer and in the driver. A tech went by also and he came up with the same conclusion. I am going to have to either provide a separate envelope printer or take the machine back and sell them some thing else (if they will do business with me after this). Yea, I wish I had sold them a Ricoh to begin with. Oki had convinced management that they were a better alternative. Guess no one tested the envelope feeding...

Yes, I think a BYOD would benefit from this feature. The administrator can share the printer with users and they can print from various mobile devices. It relieves some of the ownership of having to maintain hardware and provide requirements on what can and cannot connect to a print server and driver installation.

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Third Week of September 2014)

Had a pretty cool thing happen yesterday.  I was visiting one of my existing accounts because they had a question on one of their higher end printers.  The owner of the company then told me about a call he received from another business owner asking about how he likes his copiers.  I was given the contact name and the company, since that company was only a few minutes away I was on my way.

Stopping in un-announced is always a little dicey.  The DM was in the office and I had to wait a bit, and we then sat down for the next 45 minutes.  Not sure where this will go, however every opportunity counts.

Today was the banner day, I didn't close any deals this week but I was able to add $40K to my funnel for September. It did lift my spirits since I'm now halfway through the month.

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Second Week of August 2014)

Some what of an interesting day today I arrived about 645Am to the office.  Had to prep for a 10AM, 1PM and 4PM appointment,  All were closing opportunities, thus I wanted to have all of the documentation ready to sign.

First appointment needed to "think about it", not worried been doing business with him for 20 plus years and that's just what he does. But, I also delivered a side by comparison via email later in the day (stated he might be looking at another copier from another vendor). I'm sure the side by side comparison floored him when he saw that the device he was looking at did not meet his needs.

Second appointment reschedule, third appointment signed the docs.  Thus with two weeks left I'm at quota, and now need to start prospecting again. The prospecting never ends! #neverstopprospecting

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

What an amazing week! 

We closed our month 7 business days ago and all of those orders that didn't close for July have closed this week.  Seems I'm HOT!  

Similar to a baseball hitter that's in a hot streak, in sales it seems that almost everything you touch pans out. One of the things I've learned is that when you're hot you don't slow down. You don't take the attitude of "well I just had a great week and I'll relax next week, because I'm so far out in front".  Wrong Batman, since you're HOT now is the time to continue the streak, continue prospecting and to set those appointments.  Every time that baseball player gets an AB it's an opportunity to get another hit.  When sales people get hot they need to continue the same efforts that got them HOT!  #neverstopprospecting

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Last Week of July 2014)

Yesterday marked the end of the month for me. Thus we have seven months in the books and so far 2019 has been awesome.  August brings us those "dog days" of summer and many objections due to vacations, not enough time, get back to me after Labor Day or you can't get anyone to respond. I get it, and I've adjusted my habits over the years. August needs to be one of the biggest prospecting months in the year. The time you spend prospecting in August will pay HUGE dividends moving into the last quarter.  Yes, we are measured by our month to month sales, but we're also measured on our quarters and year end.  Ours is not a thoroughbred horse race each month. It's not about who gets there the fasted. It's more about the strategic month, the strategic quarter and the ability have a plan in place to get you where you want to be.

A mandate like that would drastically increase the monthly budget of non-profits and other cost-conscious organizations. The right lease term for a client isn't up to us as salespeople; it's up to the client. Meeting their needs (not setting yourself up to churn your base) should be the priority when discussing lease term options with a client. Some companies want the latest greatest technology and are fine paying more over a shorter term to have that luxury. Others don't care about that so

The Death of the 48, 60 and 66 Month Lease

·
Technology is changing so quickly and 5 years is a long time to wait for contracts to expire... Do any of you feel the industry would benefit from a government law that prohibited lease contracts on multifunctional printers to be no longer than 36 months in length? On the other side, do any of you strictly use shorter lease terms in order to flip your base customers quicker? Cheers!

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Third Week of July 2014)

Just a thought for everyone today. Today marks the last week of the month. I'm  had sitting on some 25 plus opportunities and for many reasons (not losing) most have moved to August and September. I'm still short to get to my quota, but I look at this like this. I still have 25% of the month left, and when I don't see the movement then it's time to do some additional prospecting.  Thus an old dog like me will be knocking on doors in between two appointments tomorrow. BTW, it's suppose to be HOT & HUMID, might need to put an extra shirt in the car.  When the going gets tough the tough get going!
