This is an excellent example of why Dealers should be aware of their manufacturer's Environmental initiatives and be able to speak intelligently about 'sustainability.'

Tokyoamsterdam: Japan's Canon plans to buy Dutch copier and printer maker Oce for 730 million euros ($1.09 billion) as it tries to return to growth after the global downturn and fight rival Ricoh.

Something to think about as well, adding to what was mentioned by Mega. The Japanese division is making the bulk of their profits on the manufacturing of toner. That is the money tree for them.

The ultimate goal is to “place the box” Ricoh USA makes their overhead by the profit on the box moving it to the Dealer and other channels.

Ricoh and Canon both say they are number 1 in the US and they are both right depending on how you are counting. Canon includes its desktop MFPs that sell in retail and Ricoh includes all MFPs priced above $1,000. Both include products that sell through any channel, but Canon has far more retail products that skew sales share in its favor. By Ricoh's math, it is number 1 with a 23.1 US share, followed by Canon. Ricoh also stated that it had the #1 color mfp share in 2009 (7 straight years)...

Re: Competitive Copier Vendors

I looked this over and found many falsehoods in this document in selling against the "national vendors". Specifically, to say that we have no ties to the local community couldn't be further from the truth. Also, firmware updates are provided at no charge. Also, we do not charge shipping and handling for toner. Perhaps in the past, but since I've been with Konica Minolta, it is included. I'd like to add a more detailed rebuttal to some of these "sell points" that are most likely outdated.

Re: KYOCERA MITA ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE TRANSITION

GMAN Never thought of that with either Ed or Pietrunti, either one may play well for Ricoh. More importantly I think the industry as a whole is struggling to find and identify new ways to make profit with the slow demise of the printed and copied page. Quietly Ricoh has launched a new start up and site for it's eWriter solution. It's an imprtant step for at least one of he manufacturers to identify the loss of clicks, thus the eWriter solution model is based on SAS (Software as a Service).

Re: CRANE COPIER DROP

I do not think that was a current customer of ProCopy. So I don't think it was something that they sold. It definitely was not a Canon, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, Xerox or HP. It could have been a Kyocera but I really think it was a Toshiba. Look at the copier as it is being hoisted into the air. It starts to spin and you can see the front. I think the blocked this on purpose so you could not see the make. But the box gives it away. I just replaced a Toshiba with a similar appearing shell.

We have used DocRecord internally at our dealership for the last two years. I like it; I find it pretty easy to administer and our end users think it's intuitive and friendly. I can't speak to integration with your specific platform. But, for automation it's just a matter of setting up a process with a watch folder through DocRecord's Automation Server tool, and programming a one-touch button on your MFP that scans into the watch folder. PS - we're a Konica Minolta dealer. :-)

Hate to say it but we are a Ricoh dealer and if image quality is the determining factor you are at a disadvantage. We have the previous generation Konica Minolta color that we run in our back office and the KM blows any of our current Ricoh products out of the water on image quality. The only exception is our new production color machine.

A Konica Minolta Banner sheet is technically only one piece of paper. Are you saying that it should be single clicked also?
