Hopefully there are more A3 style components that will allow it to become an option for A4 customers printing on heavier stocks and media.

Great points! Too often, following the path of least resistance (being lazy) can catch up with you! And- speaking of A4, we are really pleased that Canon has announced the replacement A4 mid vol series. We really needed a good A4 b&w with finishing, and hopefully this will be it!

What is even more scary is how your commission cheques will fall in $ value if you only sell A4 copiers. The copier/printer market is not getting any larger and if a commission sales rep focuses on selling lower $ value A4 boxes, they are going to have to make a lot more sales calls and sell a lot more boxes to earn the same money.

How true! And whats next? How long will it take before A4 will also be banned from the offices? My opinion; As soon as Generation Z enters the office-floors (A3 and A4) print will (sooner or later) ‘disappear’. Who's already preparing his business for this future?

Ink is here to stay, however it seems like a slow adoption rate from many of the major manufacturers in the SMB market. Ink based MFP's could be the salvation to many service departments that have aging service technicians.

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Ray Stasiezcko ·
Art, one of the problems is dealers servicing a machine for $30.00 a month. however, the reality is the industry has allowed the sales engine to destroy the service model. selling full service on A3 for .006 or less in volumes of 5k a month. Dealers were chasing sales revenue as they sacrificed service profits. As volumes continue declining so will margins. Dealers will begin realizing that all the A3 service they gave away is too costly to manage and the shift will begin. The A4...

Re: "MFP Wars" Hi Speed A3 MFP's vs A4 MFP's

Hi Ray I agree with the silliness of the low cost per page for A3. However most dealers have escalators that can raise the price as much as 10-15% per year whether it's A4 or A3. AS far as the $30 per month, almost no one will send out and invoice for $30 It's either billed quarterly or annually. One thing the A4 manufacturers won't due is too sacrifice the consumables. I also believe that dealers will always find a way to make their profit, whether it's Daas, flat rate, or seat based. I...

Art, another piece of the equation is that monthly units placed are 45% to 74% mono A4 in the segment 3 and segment 4 speed range. Online retail is $170 to $600 where used A3’s are three times that amount. The real question here is what these placements are doing to the service department revenue and eventually to staffing.

I've always sold A4 machines where they are a fit. There are very few A4 devices that offer a low CPC. Some carry CPCs that are very high. A bigger issue in many placements is that the Automatic Document Feeders on most A4 machines are not robust enough to meet the copy scan and fax demand. Many are complete garbage. In fact I've seen the quality of the Domument Feeders on A4 units go backwards in the last couple of years as if the document feeder is an afterthought or it is where the...

Art... you'd make $1 million a year if you sold Canon! Love the idea of the staple-free stapler though - not sure if it would be worth it because staples are so cheap and most companies would probably charge double over a regular staple finisher.

A4's Replacing A3 MFPs

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.
