Re: Backup Differentiators

Being able to educate customers on the differences between file-based and image-based backup is key to marketing and selling data backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions and offerings, so how can managed services providers (MSPs) lay these differences out? MSPs can help promote image-based backup by educating customers and potential customers on the differences of backup solutions. Advertisement <noscript>lt;divgt; lt;a...

Art, Love it! Great perspective, a true professional. We can't bat 1.000 though it is a nice mindset. Being able to debrief, self-evaluate and learn how to improve is the key. The office environment we sell into as copier reps is rapidly changing and evolving. You may have lost the hardware sale but may look what you gained. Play your "sales cards" right and this can be parlayed into more revenue and more profit. Great job!

Love it. This all played out in full between the first post and today. I lost a deal to a competitor that I truly have never lost an MFP to. I had my typical pissed off time period where I pretty much hate everything and anything and asked the customer the reasoning. He said the church board laid the proposals out and took the cheapest one. I will log everything in my CRM and follow up in 5 years. This is the second time I've lost the deal but I keep going back. I wished him luck and went on...

Re: 5_Things_You_Didn_t_Know_About_Cloud_Backup_-_Druva.pdf

SalesServiceGuy ·
A useful file that I have saved to my PC. In Canada, Cloud Computing has been a little slower to "take off" because a lot of Canadian businesses are alarmed by the fact that most of the cloud servers we can access reside in the USA. The recent news or media suggestions (true or not) that somehow the NSA (National Security Agency) can potentially view the contents of these cloud servers does not build confidence in storing your documents in other countries.

Good article with all valid points. The problem is that no matter what steps anyone takes to insure privacy and security there are always nefarious forces out there trying to defeat those efforts. I question whether there truly is security in the sense that we all wish it were. I am skeptical.

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Czech ·
Hey Art, We just got a desktop 3D Printer in our showroom. I expect it will do great at getting IT folks in for demos. The technology really is cool! But that's about it. From what I've seen, 3D printers have 0 practicality in an office or business environment. Perhaps the occasional school will purchase one. A lot of dealerships sell telecom services on top of copiers. It's a very similar industry: - 5 year contracts - upfront hardware revenue that can be purchased or leased - reoccurring...

Czech Thanx for the response, 3D printing is here to stay. However, it's not about now, it's about positioning your dealership as a technology leader and innovator. 3D printing sales will grow. I look at the 3D industry and am comparing it to the copier industry in the early 70's.

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Personally, I think you're right on with your ideas about 3D. I don't know if it will ever have the acceptance copiers had in their heyday, but right now, it's a product looking for a market. I saw something intersting on TV involving a 3D printing application. The company (which was not involved in any medical field) found it could use it's 3D printer to produce a prosthesis specifically designed for children. Children grow and therefore quickly outgrow their artificial limbs. This 3D...

Rogue: Thanx for the response! Time will tell, and over time they will get faster and additional materials will come to market for building all types of items. Take the copier industry and what if you had a 3D printer that could print on demand 25% of your parts. Reduce back orders, cut inventory, enhance the customer experience. It's just a matter of time

Re: 3D Printers & Copy Machines "is there a common thread"?

Old Glory ·
I know your comparison is very conceptual but there really is less commonality than you think. In the beginning copiers needed nothing but an original needing copied and the copier could fill the need. No variance in throughput, no variance in input. With 3D you have a variance in throughput that spans a very large Gamut from plastics to polymers to metals and unlike a copier, the hardware for each is radically different. Then you have the input. You can have a need and a printer and still...
