The e306LP offers a colour scanner. The scans can be either blue or black based upon your selection.

That's good right? I was just curious if when scanning the blue the scanned documents would be very light even if you were scanning with the black mode.

Re: Does anyone have a clue as to how the CPC billing model started in the first place?

Wallingford ·
What came next with some dealers in the Oz market, was a guarantee that the client's copy costs would not rise annually, above a maximum of 10% which most clients would agree to. Or that it would only rise by the CPI, which these days is a joke of a deal, as it is only around 2%. But some now guarantee to hold the pricing for the term of the rental agreement, which at 5 years is just down right stupid.This has now become a lot more prevalent, as weak salesmen sell (if you can call it...

I've only been around 9 years, but when I first started, we were selling the old Ricoh AP3800CMF (A3 color printer w/ a scanner kit attached to make it an MFP) since the 1224c/1232c was such a bust. In our Service Agreements, black toner was included in the CPP, but color toner was billable. When trying to get those customers to upgrade to the 2238c, I would create a cost per page analysis (since toner was included in our CPP for the 2238c) and had several furious customers who thought we...

I remember it well and at ComDoc, in the early 80's we sometimes put the offer out there without it being a formal price plan. I think the customer realized that a lot of the toner they purchased and stocked was useless at end of the machines life. It was like a primer with a customer who had that and TCO on their mind, it was a way to close them. Equally, I remember taking it one step further in the early 90's with copy management - the first all inclusive (hardware, service, supplies)...

I remember a plan that didn't really take hold but it was a plan like the one John talked about and all accessories were proposed in the form of copies...you want a finisher, just commit to 10,000 additional copies per month. The CPC rate had an equipment portion attached to it so more clicks funded more equipment. If the CPC was normal plus .003, 10,000 clicks added $30/month which would fund $1,500 additional. Some customers that weren't willing to pay $1,500 would agree to 10,000 more...

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.

While the e306LP is an innovative product it is unlikely to displace any colour unit sales. As colour is more than half of what I sell, this leaves this product with a declining mono colour market to appeal to. The RD30 recycle unit makes the price of the solution much more than an equivalent eStudio 306. The e306LP does not have a stapling option. I find that most customers are interested in the ideas of ecology with their copiers but they are not willing to pay a premium for it.

We are using Print Audit also, we've had a few hiccups, although it was not Print Audit it was the Ricoh devices. I'm the one who hears it first when the customer runs out, I've had a couple of issues, but that's it. Seems to be working well for my accounts.

We have auto toner fulfillment via 3rd party software. Essentially the software sends an email alert to our supplies department when a customer's machine requires toner. Have true automated toner fulfillment was unsuccessful because toner was shipping out like crazy. Now we require confirmation from the customer before we ship it out. It's a great system and saves us providing back up toner to customers that they store on-site, essentially improving the P&L on our every account.

Re: Ricoh MP 301 toner question

TML ·
Hey Art! I don't know about MICR toner for this specific model, however what models in general are MICR supported? Last I knew Ricoh had a larger BW box that was MICR enabled, but couldn't find anything about it. Did find some outfit out on the West Coast that would retrofit a BW Canon for MICR, but we never went that route due to them not being authorized and didn't want to jeopardize Canon service support. MICR's an interesting niche that is still necessary though.

I don't know if it is as simple as just adding a MICR toner...I know you can put standard toner in a MICR printer but I don't know if you can do the converse. All the Ricoh MICR printers we have purchased have been through Rosetta Technologies. You can contact them here (800) 937-4224 info@rosettatechnologies.com

I recently sold a few of the smaller Ricoh printers (not from Rosetta) and have them using the Rosetta MICR cartridges.

My understanding is MICR is just an additive that you can add to any toner. You'd just have to source it and figure out how much to add.
