Re: Selling Copiers "Should I Go Out on My Own"

bmi4u ·
While we are reminiscing about starting an office equipment dealership, it was 37 years ago that I started Business Machines Inc. (BMI) in Raleigh. BMI started as an Olivetti City Dealer and later into a full service dealership. Over the years BMI transitioned from a typewriter/calculator dealer to a computer, fax, and finally a copier dealer. It was August, 2012 that I started my exit of the industry by selling BMI to CEI with the agreement to work with them for one more year. As I write...

Re: Are Copier Sales Reps Asking the Right Questions

As you said, this blog wasn't meant to cover all the bases but your comments about brand loyalty and brand/service provider loyalty are only true if the decision maker has been the same for each decision. If you aren't talking to the owner, you may be talking to a totally different person than the one that made past decisions. You need to know that before you decide whether to pack your bags and walk away. Also, in a leased equipment environment, the decision to stay with the same brand and...

So are you saying as a customer you wouldn't expect to be able to go to a manufactures website and locate a dealer? Am I supposed to go find the product I want then go someplace else to find where to buy it.

Re: Committed to Dealer Success

No I'm not. In the case of Formax, you would call them and they would give you the name of the Authorized Dealer and I'm assuming it would be the same case with Muratec since there are no dealer locators on their web sites. Is there really a need to have 6-8 dealers covering the same geo area along with the Direct channel. Here's an example, in my territory in which we are Authorized I can't remember the last time I received a lead. Some of the manufacturers sights are slanted to delivering...

It's been while since I posted the last one. Now that I have a little more time, I'll be back to posting this series one a week. There's a thread below titled "Who Needs 11x17?". It's been ten years now for A4 devices and I feel that most manufacturers have held back from developing advanced A4 devices. When it comes down to it, it's all about profit and the manufacturers don't want to ruin there A3 business. Come to think of it, none of the manufacturers are really killing it with A4.

One item that stands out this week is the launch of the Ricoh fax 1180L. Just a few weeks ago, one of my clients wanted a fax machine. No print, no scan, just a fax. Too my surprise, Ricoh is not offering a stand alone fax anymore. I had to sell one of the smaller A4 devices and I was not happy about it, since the client was coming from a high end fax device. Instead of being able to write an order for a few thousand, it was more like $800. GRRRRR! Enjoy the threads from ten years ago this...

In a few of threads that were posted for Production Copiers I see the cost per page was .0039 and .004. Never, ever did I think that A3 black MFP's would go that low. After seeing many bid quotes would it be far fetched to think that black could go down to .0025? I guess for manufacturers or dealerships that aren't doing well, offering such low cost per page pricing on bids can get you cash flow on the short term. However it's going to bite them in the ass long term. I read a report just a...
