Get a quote from a Ricoh Professional...Now that's funny. But don't worry the dealers are the most important part of Ricoh's strategy and plans going forward. They can't even update the Savin or Lanier site. Being a Savin dealer I have people rather frequently who go on the site and are turned off by how old and outdated it looks.

Will be interesting to see what, if anything, ever comes of it. We have talked a lot before about leads from the manufacturer. Maybe, just maybe, that request a quote will be shared with dealers as well. Of course with is being a Savin dealer I won't hold my breath that "Ricoh" will send us leads. I've gotten a couple in the last few years but they came from the Savin website requests. Not sure what I've gotten from Ricoh lately except heartburn and stress.

Perfect Copier Quoting Tool Could Save Your Reps upto 100 hours a Year

Art Post ·
On the 19th, 29th and 21st of this month, there is a webinar about quoting tools for copier dealers. It is interesting when you consider how long it takes for most of us to put together quotes. It gets even more important when there are 5, 10, 20 or 50 reps selling for a company. We were working out how expensive doing quotes can be. 1 rep doing 15 quotes per month Each quote takes 30 minutes 7.5 Hours per month (basically 1 selling day per month) - We expect most reps will save this much...

Why We Decided to Make Our Own Copier Quoting Tool Getting clients good information is critical to a sales process and we have taken a lot of time and energy to create quotes that are easy for us to make, and give the client a good feeling about the options they are choosing.

I started to title this blog and then stopped because I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with this.

Demming's quote is still my favourite, as you often come across opinionated people with a lot of certainty yet when you did deeper they basis of their confidence on many topics is nothing more than opinion and here say, and all the more complicated in a time of alleged "fake news".
