Re: Ricoh ICE (Intergrated Cloud Environment)

jswinberlin ·
Maybe I did something wrong during setup. Ours in our demo room is incredibly slow. Just to get to the URL for the home screen takes a while. Getting to dropbox app (or any others) and logging in and making selections takes so long it still looks like this is in development. I must be doing something wrong. Our internet connection is good and I don't know why the MFP is so slow. Do I need to add something? Memory, GB ethernet?

Played with trying to set it up in our showroom. First of all it took over a week and several emails to get a code to enter into the machine when the documentation claims you will get the code within an hour. Fought with it and the piss poor instructions for a couple of hours. Gave up. Can't sell something where the support from Ricoh is that poor. Moved on.

Hey Art, You can scan to Google Docs (now called Google Drive), Microsoft Exchange, Email, Shared Network, as per a regular imageRUNNER ADVANCE unit. Yes, you can get the booklet finisher on a 4225.

You can scan to Mailboxes (like Ricoh's document server, but better) and an Advanced Box as well (similar to dropbox). Anything else requires additional software.

From the Ricoh's I've played around with, you can see all of the file names in the document server, but require authentication to print/send the file. Canon's units can have up to 100 mailboxes that can be individually named. Files are then securely stored inside each mailbox so that non-authenticated users cannot see what's inside someone else's mailbox.

First is this your actual reply to the account looking at thoseToshiba products listed (455 & 305)? If yes and they have a great history with the Toshiba product, telling them there a "bottom dweller" would make anyone think that you're only wanting to sell them what YOU'RE offering. The models they requested are older models of Toshiba and who knows if they've worked well for them or not. Also if you research the Okidata product, most of their MFP's are based on the Toshiba platform now...

FYI: Toshiba, overall, is in the top ten for R&D Spend-to-Sales ratios. "Bottom dweller" really is not a fair use of words. With any device manufacturer, product is only as good as its dealer support. Get references if need be. RE: maintenance; The asker is talking B&W devices not color. Regardless, get the maintenance.

Re: Demise of the 60 Month Copier Lease

Deanw ·
In my opinion, in most cases, the shorter term lease only benefits the salesman, not the customer or the dealership. A lot of the savings you are talking about would only be true if the customer does a 36 month lease and stops but normally as you discuss they don't stop the have a payment for life, it's just a question of how often they refresh their equipment. The shorter term lease does give the customer the benefit of newer equipment sooner but make no mistake, they do pay more for that.
Comment

Re: Demise of the 60 Month Copier Lease

Art Post ·
Agreed, 36 month lease is best for the sales person! But isn't that why work in this crazy business? if someone told me that I could only sell 60 month leases then I would be hard pressed to continue in this business. However, selling the 36 month payment FIRST, allows you to drop the cost of the payments by increasing the length of the payments. Therefor we can reduce the cost of the equipment rather than discounting the equipment. Discounting the equipment hurts the rep, and the dealer.

I don't know about the sales process but as far as service goes customers are happier that get 36 month leases. The ones that go for 5 years often are calling way too often because their machines were shot a year ago. Pre ikon merge we had a lot of 36 month leases but now it seems like most are 60.

Re: Demise of the 60 Month Copier Lease

Old Glory ·
I write almost all 36 month leases and almost all of them are renewed for another 24 months or 36 months. If you use a lease company with a guaranteed residual in the 10-15% range you can profit twice on the same box. With my company, I get credit for all the GP on the renewal since nothing is being set up or delivered, etc. I usually quote around a 65-75% payment on a 24 month renewal and a 50% payment on a 36 month renewal. I don't recommend either renewal unless the service history and...

Re: Demise of the 60 Month Copier Lease

In my humble opinion the quote above is a flawed way of going about leasing for both you the sales rep and the customer. Choose the right lease term from the beginning and stick it out until the end of term. Rolling payments is bad for the customer and bad for you the sales person. As a sales rep I don't like to even roll a single payment into the new deal. I view that as a waste of potential profit and a reduction of my commission. If you look at my leases you'd see the vast majority are 48...
