Hopefully there are more A3 style components that will allow it to become an option for A4 customers printing on heavier stocks and media.

Another major advantage is the availability of all PaperLocks (and other hardware accessories) that were already developed for Ricoh's A3 line. Please check https://www.solutionconfigurator.com/#b/37/m/946 & https://www.copiersolutionshop.com/

Nice job Ray I've been touting A4 for many years, give the client what they want and educate them that A3 is not way to go. "If I'm not selling A4, then my competition is". Funny, when I mentioned this to a DSM, that DSM replied that we'll subsidize the A3's so you can place them

Most are missing this great opportunity to shift dollars. The satellite channels are starting to tell end-users to shift print spend to IT Security, and other more pressing issues. It won't be long before the buyer starts circumventing the sales engine of yesterday. Thanks for posting Art

In my experience A4 machines are as much or even more hassle than an A3 machine to install and train which I do myself for the customer but my income off of the sale of the A4 device is a fraction of what it would have been had I sold an A3. Beyond that most A4 machines lack a document feeder built to handle the page volumes of walk up copying and scanning my customers do. At the end of the day I have to make a living so I spend my time on A3 opportunities.

Great points! Too often, following the path of least resistance (being lazy) can catch up with you! And- speaking of A4, we are really pleased that Canon has announced the replacement A4 mid vol series. We really needed a good A4 b&w with finishing, and hopefully this will be it!

What is even more scary is how your commission cheques will fall in $ value if you only sell A4 copiers. The copier/printer market is not getting any larger and if a commission sales rep focuses on selling lower $ value A4 boxes, they are going to have to make a lot more sales calls and sell a lot more boxes to earn the same money.

How true! And whats next? How long will it take before A4 will also be banned from the offices? My opinion; As soon as Generation Z enters the office-floors (A3 and A4) print will (sooner or later) ‘disappear’. Who's already preparing his business for this future?

Slight correction...both the IM 430F and the IM 430Fb are 43 ppm. Additional info...the 430F (SP 501) has a Service Maintenance platform while the 430Fb (SP 502) has a User Maintenance platform. The SP 510 and SP 502 are printer only versions of their respective MFP's. As far as I know, the SP's and the IM 350 (350F without a standard fax) have not been launched yet. It is interesting to note that the service training does not reference the MP 301SPF or the MP 402SPF at all. The new IM units...

Re: Are A4 MFPs an Environmental hazard?

I'm in agreement about he value at the end of lease for A4's. It was a topic of discussion that I had with two premier wholesalers. It's often heard "that one mans junk is another mans treasure." This can be true with a savvy buyer as long as they can get 3 year old A4's or less for a song and a dance. These would be perfect devices to put back in the field under a DaaS plan, even if it's only for a year or two. That model is probably the only potential I see for the off lease A4 devices.

The ability to purchase a used A4 copier for like $25.00 to $50.00 each is not the full story. Depending on where the meter read is you might have to spend an additional $350.00 on consumables to get a 50 cpm black only desktop Lexmark working and up to $1,400.00 to a Lexmark 40 cpm colour 4 ready to go.

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Ray Stasiezcko ·
Art, one of the problems is dealers servicing a machine for $30.00 a month. however, the reality is the industry has allowed the sales engine to destroy the service model. selling full service on A3 for .006 or less in volumes of 5k a month. Dealers were chasing sales revenue as they sacrificed service profits. As volumes continue declining so will margins. Dealers will begin realizing that all the A3 service they gave away is too costly to manage and the shift will begin. The A4...

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Hi Ray I agree with the silliness of the low cost per page for A3. However most dealers have escalators that can raise the price as much as 10-15% per year whether it's A4 or A3. AS far as the $30 per month, almost no one will send out and invoice for $30 It's either billed quarterly or annually. One thing the A4 manufacturers won't due is too sacrifice the consumables. I also believe that dealers will always find a way to make their profit, whether it's Daas, flat rate, or seat based. I...

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Art, another piece of the equation is that monthly units placed are 45% to 74% mono A4 in the segment 3 and segment 4 speed range. Online retail is $170 to $600 where used A3’s are three times that amount. The real question here is what these placements are doing to the service department revenue and eventually to staffing.

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

I've always sold A4 machines where they are a fit. There are very few A4 devices that offer a low CPC. Some carry CPCs that are very high. A bigger issue in many placements is that the Automatic Document Feeders on most A4 machines are not robust enough to meet the copy scan and fax demand. Many are complete garbage. In fact I've seen the quality of the Domument Feeders on A4 units go backwards in the last couple of years as if the document feeder is an afterthought or it is where the...

It's been a bit since I've commented here, sorry Art! Great read on paper and why it's important.

@Art Post A quick perusal of the world wide web shows that a carton of paper isn't appreciably more, if at all. It looks like some/most papers have the color lok symbol, but it is another qualifying questions a good rep should at least be asking/seeing. Kind of like how once upon a time ADA compliant devices were all the rage and now it's just standard.

If you can sit with accounts, or get invoices, best way to go. However, if they push back on that, I fall back to "industry standards" from a TCO site like FM audit or LDI. When they question my numbers, I then use that to ask for their actual invoices so we can verify.

Re: Curious about how everyone verfies Cost Per Page

Jus an FYI - on low volume devices, or on local connected devices, we go with a flat rate per month. Much easier on all, and several years worth of history doing this in many marketplaces shows we are making money on flat rate deals.

A4's Replacing A3 MFPs

Looking for some insight on how often A4 MFPs are replacing A3 MFPs in contracts. What types of offices (sizes, verticals) are you seeing more frequently replace an existing A3 with an A4? When an A4 does take the place of an A3, do customers have concerns about the higher CPC? If so, are you reducing CPCs at all to help win bids? Thanks for your help.
