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.

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.

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

gap ·
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.

There is a Samsung Mobile Printing app in the iTunes AppStore that would allow users to do this. Most manufacturers have their own apps for both iOS & Andriod at this point.

In the end, we are talking about another copier vendor trying to make a splash with a new User Interface (UI) similar to what Sharp did two years ago. The fact that Samsung has attached one of their 10" Android tablets to the front of a copier is unique but the LCD size is not. There are many factors that go through a buyers head when they buy a copier. Generally, the UI is not at the top of the list.

I would absolutely disagree.

I've sold a lot of Ricoh equipment to displace Xerox or Konica Minolta systems that customers thought was too hard to use.
