You mean Batelli resigned? I sure wish they would get someone in there that was worth a damn. Previously Linda Allen and then Batelli. I am sure the Plotworks thing didn't have anything to do with it. J.
I hope Ricoh can bring back the magic they had when Linda ran the division. Plotworks has been a great product with great support once you learn the capabilities. It is an excellent PlotBase replacement product. I cannot think of a better time to be selling Wide Format- here in the SE, industry is back on it's feet and growing.
Maxima1 Agreed about the production thing with wide format. But dude you're less than stellar at returning calls, and if you're referring to me digging for information for a blog, well, you're way off base. Plus how can you make that statement, if you don't call the person back to find out what they need? It's not only me, I've spoken to others and we all agreed you were not that good when it came to call backs. Now, this doesn't mean I don't like you, I do like you, but dude you gotta call...
You were atrocious at returning phone calls. And for you to state that you returned calls in a timely manner that you deemed important takes the cake and proves the point. Additionally, the sales reps in the field who religiously continue to sell the wide format product are the reason for any continued success in that area of Ricoh's product line. With the mandatory increase in price and a stale product lineup most days it is a difficult exercise.
I wish everyone that is selling wide format in Ricoh continued success. I know it is a tough endeavor and will continue to be considering the internal shift towards color and support for direct. If you required better support, I hope you receive it in the future. Good Luck.
So, what am I missing here, I can see OCE, but no KIP and no Ricoh. Did they actually sell then than 2,500 shipments? If Ricoh only placed 2,000 wide format systems and I sold 20 last year does that mean the I accounted for 1% of the world wide wide format placements for Ricoh? That's pitiful!!
Just had a customer with a lease on a 3601 come to end of term. I had nothing to offer him other than the same thing he already had for the past 4 years. Trail went cold and meanwhile KIP is kicking our butts.
How much de-featured can it be? Unless they make print & scan an option. Use a single roll feeder. I mean what else could you cut? At this point in time I don't believe anything about Ricoh wide format.
here's the rub, will they move the speed to 8ppm or 6ppm? That's my question. I can see a difference in speed from 14ppm to 6ppm. For some reason I feel that they will go with 8ppm and not 6ppm. If that's the case, then we're no better than before. Don't get me wrong, I want 6PPM, however, I do not believe anything I hear about wide format from Ricoh anymore. Art

I won't be impressed until I see a launch packet and a price point that can actually compete with the Kip and Oce. I've been hearing for over a year now something is coming. Heard it from Corridi face to face last March at a meeting and several other times.
The biggest thing that jumps out at me with this product is that you are not carrying this machine up a flight of stairs. With the current model you can separate the main body from the roll base and you can muscle it up a flight of stairs. I have at lease half a dozen installs currently where the machine is on a second floor with no elevator.
