Art... you'd make $1 million a year if you sold Canon! Love the idea of the staple-free stapler though - not sure if it would be worth it because staples are so cheap and most companies would probably charge double over a regular staple finisher.

Re: How Can a Scanning Workflow be Created on a Copier?

Art Post ·
FYI: Most IT managers don’t like scanned documents sent using email or saved in Exchange. Exchange is not a document management systems. Attaching, replicating and storing large files can cause issues. Preferred method is to scan to folder or directly to the DM solution if that is an option.

I assumed the device was designed for low, low volume and would have a high cost per page. I was dead wrong in my assumptions. In fact, I couldn't be happier with the features, the speed, the hardware cost and the consumable cost of the MP 501/601SP.

Re: Ricoh MP 401SPF Spec Review

Drop Out Color Send When scanning in B&W, users can choose to NOT capture a specific color -red, green, or blue - from a scanned page. This is useful when extracting data from forms, or to enhance OCR scanning accuracy by narrowing the range of color characters to be interpreted as editable text.

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Hey Art, We just got a desktop 3D Printer in our showroom. I expect it will do great at getting IT folks in for demos. The technology really is cool! But that's about it. From what I've seen, 3D printers have 0 practicality in an office or business environment. Perhaps the occasional school will purchase one.

Czech Thanx for the response, 3D printing is here to stay. However, it's not about now, it's about positioning your dealership as a technology leader and innovator. 3D printing sales will grow. I look at the 3D industry and am comparing it to the copier industry in the early 70's.

I saw something intersting on TV involving a 3D printing application. The company (which was not involved in any medical field) found it could use it's 3D printer to produce a prosthesis specifically designed for children. Children grow and therefore quickly outgrow their artificial limbs. This 3D...
