I love doing them because of the interaction with potential clients and you never know who you're going to meet. We brought the BIG 65 inch white board and it was the sizzle that we needed to catch all of those prospects. All...

Re: Cost Per Copy and Rate Lock

Well do rate locks also, but there has to be some GP in the deal, since it will come out of the sales person "skin". You should be looking at the T's & C's of the agreement because they may charge excessive dollars to ship supplies. (charging $20 per shipment per month can be quite the upcharge). Also be on the look out for verbiage in the maintenance supply agreement that states something to the effect, "that we can cancel or charge you more if you use too much toner aka fill) Hope this...

I've bumped in to this a few times in the last few weeks and wanted some input. Lately we've been up against a plethora of lower tier devices (Kyocera/Sharp/Toshiba boxes). In 3/4 of these situations, several of the competitors have been able to lock clicks for the term of the lease. They're coming in at $.0069 - $.0074 / $.04-$.05. Is this the new normal or has this always been an acceptable locked click rate?

The “New Math” For Managed Print Services

The “New Math” For Managed Print Services by Print Audit One of the difficulties I’ve always had with MPS as it is marketed today, is the apparent conflict of interest that exists between MPS providers and their customers, under the Cost-Per-Page (CPP) billing model. Let me first point out that CPP is not a requisite of MPS. In the Managed Services space generally, Cost-Per-User or per Seat billing is more common. Nevertheless, most of the businesses I encounter who provide MPS in North...
