Nice read. Good printer. I am curious about the 'device billing'. What exactly do you mean by 'device billing'?

Device billing is when you charge a flat price for service each month. There clicks are unlimited, however the client needs to buy the consumables. Preferably from you.

What consumables are not included? Only the toner? What about other parts like drums, fuser, rollers etc.? Do you do those kind of agreements for MFP's too?
Comment

Re: Five Reasons Why I'm Stoked About the New Ricoh SP8400DN Printer

Art Post ·
No, we are not doing any of those agreements with our MFP's. With the printer the device billing would not include the drum, or fuser. Client would pay for those. Device billing is a practical maintenance agreement for the new A3 ink based MFP's. Epson will be launching their 100ppm color device shortly. The only consumables is the print head and the ink. It's rumored that the print head will be warranted for 3 years. In addition the print head is very costly. The idea would be to charge...

Client Pro's: Lower purchase or lease price for hardware Faster print speed than laser based vs same segment ink vs laser Unlimited pages No overage billing No unpredicted costs with overages Less downtime than laser Client Cons: Quality of prints or copies may not be equal to laser (does not matter if prints or copies stay in house) Print Head cost Ink cost may be higher than color laser, however that may be off-set by the lower purchase price Anyone care to add?

I'm not sure about PaperCut with the HP products, I do know that PaperCut is supported with the Epson 100ppm color device. scan2email, scan2folder, secure, authentication all yes with both devices. Not sure about account track as a standard feature

Had a conference call with Epson Monday afternoon. They said the ended up with a 1 year warranty on the print heads but you can purchase an extended warranty for something like $250/yr.? I didn't write that down because the only thing that matters to me is what gets passed on to the customer and manufacturers warranties are seldom passed on. Epson Ink Process advantages: No heat so no heat related issues...no fuser, no cooling fan, no warm-up. Consumes 50% less power No drum or developer so...

I guess he was just referring to the Epson C869R (25 ppm). We kept asking questions about the 100 ppm unit and I lost track which unit this information applied to. Sorry for the confusion. We have a launch on the 11th and he promised more info on the 100 ppm at that time.

Just to be clear, it is an Epson Launch, not a launch of the 100 ppm. He just said that he would know more about the 100 ppm when he came on the 11th.

I think everybody was thinking who in the copier industry was Samsung planning on buying. Nobody thought that it would be Samsung who got bought up. It is not like they needed the money. I think there was some corporate pride at Samsung that they would become #1 in any industry that they entered. It must have been obvious to Samsung that to conquer the consumer electronics industry is one thing put to conquer the business to business copier industry was unlikely.

I think I figured out what happened. Their PR company accidentally sent out a press release from 15 years ago, not realizing that the core messages they put out were no longer relevant. It's like having Comcast put out a press release that they just bought an ISP and they are going to completely disrupt the dial-up internet market.

What is puzzling to me is almost the same day that HP announced they were purchasing Samsung's print business, they launched a major new product line. Are they going to ditch the new Samsung line? Did HP buy Samsung's print business to take out a competitor and get the recurring revenue from parts, supplies and cpc contracts. To me, HP has always been an abbreviation for "hardly profitable".

I had the time at lunch today to listen to a recorded webex meeting from Photizo that offered up speculation on why HP bought Samsung. Here's my takeaways: Patents, more than 6,500 of them 1,500 world class engineers The eventual replacement of all canon marking engines with Samsung Thus, as there was much hype about the purchase of Samsung, I don't think was for the laser based engines, but more for the patents, the engineers, and the laser engines for HP printers. In addition, HP will now...

Re: 5 Questions for HP about the Acquisition of Samsung Printer Business Unit

SalesServiceGuy ·
I hope HP (Hardly Profitable)'s idea of market innovation is not to make the whole industry hardly profitable. Outside sales reps need to make a buck and will not flock to a new product that dramatically reduces their commission on every sale. Kind of like the A3 to A4 transition of a few years ago. Sales reps do not want to be forced to try and sell a lot more boxes to earn the same income regardless of how great the technology might be. Did that, been there.

Maybe they are calling the exit area in the MFP a cave, because it is surrounded on at least two sides. The finisher then sits in the cave?

As of this date, BLI has published no specs on the new A3 product line. HP's website has posted a few images. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hp-ne...s/2016/GPC_2016.html Tiered billing has been offered by Kyocera and Xerox for a few years. I think the tiers are very low and a customer quickly gets knocked up to Tier 3 full or above market price.

Thanks Martin Hofman, The industry needs more "Imaginationalyst" (Yes I made that word up). Without the ability to imagine a completely different way of doing things, or the ability to break loose from stubbornness. Change will always happen to you instead of being caused by you. Too much analysis not enough Imagination we need to combine them "Imaginationalyst"

This is a great article! One point that I disagree on is that HP will be entering the SMB market with this acquisition. What's the point? Dealers own the SMB market, and most dealers will sell whatever their customers already have. Where HP has the advantage is going into their national and global accounts where they dominate with MPS contracts on A4 devices. Finally, they can go back to the banks/governments/etc and kick out the Canon/Ricoh/Xerox A3 devices that are in there. And because HP...
