This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago

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

Sunday afternoon here, just about a quarter to 4PM.  Also a beautiful day here in New Jersey.  Summer weather for another couple of days. At 1PM decided to watch the NY Giants vs Buffalo Bills.  Just like last week the Giants score early and couldn't score again.  Frak me, it's going to be a long season.

They may make $1500 on a decent document management deployment. Bigger commissions = more motivation. 3. It really does help your business. This is important.

Wow, what a week?  A couple of weeks ago I realized my funnel was sucking wind for September.  With August ending on the 23rd by the time Labor Day was finished I'm already 28% into my month. In addition this coming Monday I have a charity golf event then Thursday and Friday of this coming I'll be in the Big Apple for the BTA East event.

What's a sales guy to do?  One is to prospect your ass off and the other is to try and make up some days. Thus everyday this week I was in the office by 6:15AM. 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. Monday morning back up and working by 6AM, I can get another 4 hours of prospecting in before I need to leave.

In the end, we are talking about another copier vendor trying to make a splash with a new User Interface (UI) similar to what Sharp did two years ago. The fact that Samsung has attached one of their 10" Android tablets to the front of a copier is unique but the LCD size is not. There are many factors that go through a buyers head when they buy a copier. Generally, the UI is not at the top of the list.

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

Enjoy these threads from 5 years ago this week!

Art, great article. I was listening to a podcast the other day and they were alluding to the fact that cold calling is dead and social media marketing has replaced it.

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.

We are a Canon, Savin, Samsung, and HP Dealer. We now push Canon 90% of the time. Can't beat the reliability of them. We just got rid of Kyocera about 6 months ago.

That was our experience with Kyocera as well and why we left them for Samsung as our second line. Our primary is Ricoh and the Samsung is a great compliment to Ricoh as they give you similar speeds and feeds at a much lower price to the customer. For the low volume customer who still wants the features without the hefty price of a Ricoh the Samsung is the perfect fit. Samsung has some features I wish Ricoh had by the way. One other problem with Kyocera was the pricing made selling a Ricoh

SalesServiceGuy, What Model Xerox? Is this true for all Xerox models? Can any Xerox folks confirm or add to this info? Thanks, Vince

When Ricoh came in to launch the MP 2353/2852/3353 we were told the same thing. However, there is nothing in print including the Competitive Zone which is supposed to be the results of testing everything.

No, only Autodesk software can print a dwg. If they publish it to a PLT, PDF or tif it can print it. A dwg is not a finished file.

If the customer does not AutoCAD we load Truview on there workstation. It is a free software from Autodesk and will print dwg's through the windows driver.

Why don't they just print out of AutoCAD?

this is the email I received from my customer: I was just informed by others that the Plot Works software that you have included in our deal, does not work with DWG files. As you know, we typically print from DWG files directly from AutoCad and not the DWF files that the software supports. I’m told that there is other software needed to allow DWG files to print.

It sounds like he is looking for the AutoCAD driver or just the Windows driver to print directly from AutoCAD.

The Old 480 dwg option was just a file converter, it would leave the old file on the server and the customer would call in with complaints that it was coming up with out of memory errors because it kept all the old files on the server and not delete them, at least that was our experience. I guess I'm confused as to why the customer is not just printing the dwg files out of AutoCAD with the AutoCAD driver and all the rest of his files with Plotworks.

k, so I guess what you are telling me is that the customer can print the DWG through autocad with the autocad print driver?

Sure, now granted it's been a while sense I've install the Ricoh one but it just installed in the "add a plotter" wizard within AutoCAD. The wizard is found in the plotter manager area within AutoCAD.

Our dealership recently received two new units, with bad starter cartridges. This was Mid-march. We have been told that the black ink is on back order. Has anyone else had any issues with this equipment, or Ricoh supplies?

I learned today that while a Xerox copier is processing a Searchable PDF, the engine is not available for any other task. Long complicated PDFs can knock the Xerox completely out of action for many minutes until the OCR task is completed.
