How to Manage Paper Engineering Drawings in a Digital World Paper engineering drawings? Really? I thought everyone used CAD these days. Haven’t we advanced to 3D models? Well, yes….and….no. While newer designs are almost always done in CAD these days -- often in 3D CAD -- there is still a vast legacy of paper drawings that reside in flat files in factories, corporations, engineering firms, mining companies and other strongholds from coast to coast.

This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Last Week of April 2007)

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...

I ALWAYS cold call in person. No one wants to speak to a disembodied voice on the phone. Sometimes I walk in and find someone I used to work with in the office. SCORE! You just have to get out of the office if you want to make something happen.

Not so much. It’s such a weird deal, like trying to sell cars door to door. I usually say something like: ‘I was in the building seeing…whoever, and thought I would stop by and introduce myself and the company that I represent. Then I leave them with a flyer that shows a couple of different machines and monthly costs. I never got any training so would appreciate any suggestions that you have, Art.

OH, I’m Miss Eagle Eye when I go anywhere!! The other local dealer lost his partnership with Ricoh (he was selling Kyoceras instead) so I am always looking for his customers to touch base with too. Sounds like you are in a much larger market than I am. Rarely, do I find even an in-house IT person much less someone who is in charge of Office technology. All the larger companies here are branch offices and decisions are not made locally. My FIRST question is always are you a local company?

I too am in non metro area and there is a lot of oil and gas here that are not headquartered here so I understand why you ask if they are a local company. However, you are making a huge mistake if you assume that just because they are not local, that they have no control or influence over the equipment they get. There are a whole host of companies that don't wish to get involved with the purchasing decisions of their outlying branches, especially if they only have a handful. You still need...

Oh, I do.. . That’s funny you say, ‘Does the copier just show up?’ Because I hear that a lot and that’s exactly what happens.

I don’t say, ‘Is the decision-maker here’, exactly, but I do get to that answer. FedEx, Wells Fargo, Conoco-Phillips, to name a few of our Nationals, don’t even know they are...
