Re: Best Black & White MFP for 10k/month yeild. Suggestions?

muleyman ·
First is this your actual reply to the account looking at thoseToshiba products listed (455 & 305)? If yes and they have a great history with the Toshiba product, telling them there a "bottom dweller" would make anyone think that you're only wanting to sell them what YOU'RE offering. The models they requested are older models of Toshiba and who knows if they've worked well for them or not. Also if you research the Okidata product, most of their MFP's are based on the Toshiba platform now...

Actually, I did not mention that I am offering any equipment to them. I'm not even sure where they are located, I'm not looking to sell them, All of the recent MFP's that I've seen at the shows have pretty much the same GUI> I do remember something about a more robust partnering with Toshiba/

FYI: Toshiba, overall, is in the top ten for R&D Spend-to-Sales ratios. "Bottom dweller" really is not a fair use of words. With any device manufacturer, product is only as good as its dealer support. Get references if need be. RE: maintenance; The asker is talking B&W devices not color. Regardless, get the maintenance. Fewer spikes in copy quality or hardware issues because you'll make that phone call to fix rather than putting up with poor copy quality, etc. for fear of how much it...

TimB: Thanx for the comment! I believe you with the top ten in R & D for Spend to Sales ratios, but I don't R & D being conducted for copiers not like Canon, Xerox, KonicaMInolta & Xerox. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. Toshiba's market share over the last ten years in the US has always been at or near the bottom of the pack, thus they are cellar dwellers, bottom feeders, in the US market. You are correct with the MA, they were not asking for...

Art, I like your general guidance to the initial poster, and I won't grade your writing since this isn't an English class. In regard to this brief post conversation, I think honesty is the best policy with customers and with ourselves. Yes Tim, they probably are in the top ten. However, the customer was asking which is the best. By rankings in the market place, the top seven do not include Toshiba. They fall within the bottom 7% of market share for shipments and the bottom 8.6% for market...

Equitrac/Safecom/ecopy/ppdm its too small of a component of Nuance. I will bet you they split the document imaging division into a separate company.

Re: Samsung to Acquire Nuance?

I think buying Nuance would be a great opportunity for Samsung to get deeper in the solutions side of the industry. However, I 100% agree with Yeti that it's too small of a division of Nuance. Knowing that iPhone's Siri uses Nuance technology gives Samsung huge opportunities to work with or against Apple.

specialized third party print software that needs PCL 5 in order to work properly. The software module is called ELP (not Emerson, Lake & Palmer) and is sold by Stethos in Germany

Is the Konica Minolta using any account codes/ authentication or special finishing? If not you can usually use a generic PCL5 driver. I will look at ELP.

none of the above, except for finishing. We are looking to manipulate a batch print stream from an ERP system so that the pages will print double sided and be auto stapled.

I don't work for a dealer but I am convinced that unless the deals are in a real remote area, 98% of the leads are going to the direct ops.

Re: Cannata Awards Recipients

Art Post ·
I wanted to respond to the "Best Software & Services Providers" Award. It's my understanding and I could be wrong, is that a dealer survey is sent to "x" dealers with the above questions. There were four nominees that I heard of and they were: ACDI FM Audit Paper Cut Square 9 Where is DocuWare, Nuance, Print Audit, PSIGEN, MWAI and the others? Which got me to thinking. Is Cannata using the same pool of dealers every year for the voting? I'm thinking maybe yes, because these players in...

I agree Rick Taylor has done a superb job at KM but I think he does win it every year. Rightfully so in my opinion, but I also believe Cannata uses the same dealers every year. Since I met them a couple years ago and we use 4 or 5 partners on the lists now we have been included in the voting for the last 2 years.

Re: Cannata Awards Recipients

Ty for the comment, I think the same about Taylor. So, unless those dealers change who they use as third party supplies, none of the other will ever get on the list.

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

As Friday came to close, there were only two (sales) of us left in the office by the time 4:30PM rolled around. Why were we in the office at 4:30PM on a Friday? That's easy, our month ends on Monday and we're still trying to get move shit forward. As we were packing up, the topic of demonstrations came up somehow. There we were reminiscing about how awesome it was to do demonstrations. The planning, the preparation, and of course the sizzle. I'll admit it, I could present excellent...

This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The Second Week of March 2008

Art Post ·
Ah, 2008 and not one of my favorites years. The economy was tanking. Clients that were at the end of the lease were opting to buy the equipment instead of upgrading. Credit became really tight, especially for start ups, and many companies were closing, declaring bankruptcy or one day they were open and the next day they were not. Some say that the economy really didn't rebound until 2015. Any way you slice it, it was a horrendous seven years. Looking back, I would also tend to think that the...

It's early on day 3 of the Graph Expo show. I'm up and about early at the Hyatt Regency and I've made way to the pool grotto to enjoy the sunrise.

In addition there were some additional devices like the KIP Color wide formats, and the OCE Color wide formats that I wanted to get some additional data on to help me in my day...
