Color Label Press University "Glossary of Terms" Part Fifteen, Course One

Art Post ·
As I walked in the building the smell of fresh iron, virgin plastic and ozone told me I was in copier heaven! I told David Clearman (Director of Marketing and PLS Sales for Muratec Amercia) that the smell of copiers was in the air! I was excited to take a tour of new KonicaMinolta CEC (Customer Engagement Center) in Ramsey, NJ and get personal with the PLS (Precision Label Series) PKG 675 and the awesome PLS 475i. The PGK 675 is designed for printing onto corrugated material and the PLS 475i...

Muratec America at BTA East Grand Slam in NYC September 2019

I took these videos at BTA East last week. It was my first attempt and I know I need to get better. Some had lighting issues, another was the sound and another was me with not setting the camera at hi res. I apologize for the no9t so good video's. However these for the most part are from P4P Hotel Sponsors. Listen closely, turn up the volume and I promise new video's will be much better.

Why Are You Not Selling Niche Printing Systems?

Art Post ·
Who wants to make GREAT commissions again? What dealer principal would be interested in creating another revenue stream where the orders of consumables never cease? What would you give up not to have competition with a product that can practically sell itself, once you've demonstrated the product? How did you answer those questions? Just like I did? My first answer is ME, my second response (if I was a dealer principal) is ME, and for the third question, I would give up my....... Recent...

Let's look at the history. Multifunction Printers --> Commoditized by the copier industry Managed Print Services --> Used as a buzz word for marketing purposes. Does anyone even know what true MPS is anymore? Now even RFP's contain the term Managed Print Services and it does not mean what they think it is...

Re: Leapfrog Managed Services from Muratec

Focusing on gaining more market-share in the copier industry is a fool's game, unless you're the manufacturer. Dealers that hope to be around & profitable in the future have to find alternative revenue streams, because the fact of the matter is that not everyone needs a $15,000 A3 MFP when in many cases a $1,000 A4 MFP will do. For the dealer community, it has to be about capturing profitable recurring revenue streams, whether that be through SaaS solutions, MPS, Managed Services, BPO,...

I have an IT friend who names the printers on his client's networks after the Seven Dwarfs. If he runs out of dwarfs he uses other Disney characters. I always know when I'm in one of his client's offices.

MSRP of $18k, that makes $360 on a lease. Thus, you need to find someone outsourcing. After a little research, color labels that are 4x4 cost around 45 cents each. Thus someone outsourcing 800 labels or more can be a prospect for one of these devices.

Take Aways From MY Recent Trip to InfoFlex 2018

The next time I go to Indianapolis it's going to be by plane and not by car. It was a last minute decision on whether to make the trip or not. Thus when I looked at the flights and saw that the cost was almost a thousand bucks, I decided the make the drive. On the way out I did two six hour drives and stayed over night in western PA. But, the trip back I had to make in one day. It was fourteen hours from start to finished and I was mentally drained by the time I arrived home in Highlands.

Five Reasons Why I'll Be Attending Muratec Label University While @ ITEX 2017

Just last night I was developing a power point for some rookies to help them sell more wide format MFP's. My opening slide and comment revolves around the how many competitors could be in involved for a copier/MFP opportunity. I counted twelve different manufacturers that could be involved in the opportunity. Thus, that slide showed all twelve potential suppliers. My next slide was to show how many toner based wide format suppliers you could run up against on a wide format opportunity. That...
