Re: COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Forty-Three of Sales

SalesServiceGuy ·
I just created my own YouTube channel doing product videos with future ones planned mostly focussed on MS365. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OotckdOtEg ... and I am working Linkedin a lot more in different ways. Most of the people I know say they have never gotten a lead from Linkedin. They think of this site as a static business card talking about who they are and not what they can do for the customer. They never post to Linkedin. Like most things, Linkedin requires almost daily work to...

SSG that's an awesome video! You can send links to clients, and direct them to your channel. It's a virtual demo that keeps on giving. Kudos I have some of the same issues with getting appointments through Linkedin, however I know of several peeps that use Linkedin as their only source for prospecting and they are doing well. I will keep working it since I have a Navigator account now

A few questions for the Canon experts! Can this system only scan to google docs? Can you get the bookletmaker on the 4225?

Hey Art, You can scan to Google Docs (now called Google Drive), Microsoft Exchange, Email, Shared Network, as per a regular imageRUNNER ADVANCE unit. Yes, you can get the booklet finisher on a 4225.

You can scan to Mailboxes (like Ricoh's document server, but better) and an Advanced Box as well (similar to dropbox). Anything else requires additional software.

How is scanning the document server pn the Canon better than the Ricoh?

From the Ricoh's I've played around with, you can see all of the file names in the document server, but require authentication to print/send the file. Canon's units can have up to 100 mailboxes that can be individually named. Files are then securely stored inside each mailbox so that non-authenticated users cannot see what's inside someone else's mailbox.

Re: Scan to Google Drive

You should be able to set it up as a direct scan to folder. Just put in the path to shared google drive folder that is located on a pc. You can then scan to that folder only. Using ICE you would be able to see all of the folders that are in Google Drive.

Re: Scan to Google Drive

jswinberlin ·
Art is correct. Like Dropbox or OneDrive, you can scan to a folder in the user directory that is linked to the cloud account. ICE allows you to scan to the cloud without having the PC in the middle and allows users to have access to any cloud account, not just the one on a PC. The workaround described would require the cloud app folder to be installed on the PC therefore any user would need to have a PC with said cloud app running on it.

Re: State of the "Art" Sales Technology

Hey Jeff, Art's Box Approach (I believe) is using 4 different methods of communication: Phone Call LinkedIn Email In-Person Cold Call You "box" the prospect in until they finally give you the time of day. Using all 4 methods of communication ensures that you are optimizing your ability to reach the DM via his preferred method.

Re: RICOH BRINGS ‘CLOUD PRINT’ TO BUSINESS-CLASS MFPS

txeagle24 ·
Ricoh would try to charge for this. In my opinion, this should be included as a firmware update that brings additional value to the client & potentially helps Ricoh and its dealers capture more prints from mobile devices. I do like the idea of Ricoh starting to offer additional features via firmware installation (chargeable or not). If they truly want to be a Services-led organization, we should be able to add features like this or OCR to products across the line. It's ridiculous that if...

Awesome point on the OCR. The MP4002 & MP5002 are long in the tooth and needs to be replaced ASAP!

Re: RICOH BRINGS ‘CLOUD PRINT’ TO BUSINESS-CLASS MFPS

They don't need to replaced. They are great boxes but need to be made current by making them compatible with new features like OCR & Smart Operations Panel. Update them using firmware. Imagine how much more money Ricoh could make if they only updated monochrome systems half as often (no need to manufacture a new design) but provided new features via firmware update & potential add-ons. Color is presently a different story since the quality keeps improving but not for long.

k, and the day will come soon, when only color systems are offered. I'm not holding my breath on Ricoh just updating the MP4002/5002. Yes, would be much easier for us and dealers to keep the same engine and just add additional features.

They won't just update it; I'm just stating my opinion. I predict the next version will feature a single-pass feeder and the additional features. The day may come when a manufacturer only offers color systems, but I hope Ricoh isn't the first one. Whoever that is will lose a lot for several years due to customer resistance unless there are multiple billing tiers in which low coverage is billed at the same rate as mono & higher coverage rates can be completely disabled to overcome...

Re: Connect the MFPs you sell to any folder

timw ·
When connecting an MFP to say DropBox, the MFP still doesn't allow for an end-user to view that DropBox's folder tree (without added software), correct? So essentially the customer scans to DropBox, heads back to their computer, and then searches around the DropBox folder until they find their scanned file - which isn't much different than the issue the end-user described in the first place? Am I correct in this? I've been looking around for a solution that can help with this that won't...

Re: Connect the MFPs you sell to any folder

Hello TimW, Thank you for that question. I think it is very relevant, especially as we do have the browse feature for SharePoint. For cloud services such as Dropbox, Micorosoft OneDrive and Google Drive, Udocx enables users to scan directly to any pre-define folder. This means users can scan to several specific destinations within Dropbox. For example, if you want to scan to the 'orders' folder within Dropbox regularly, you can make a 'scan to orders' App. This App will be available to you...

Re: Connect the MFPs you sell to any folder

timw ·
Hi Iris, Thank you for the response! This helps, but the folders still need to be pre-defined, which would be the same thing as setting up a shared folder, no? And the MFP can do that natively. So out of the box, the installing technician could conceivably set up "Scan to Dropbox -Orders," "Scan to Drop-Box - Leads," "Scan to Drop-Box - Accounts Receivable" since no software is needed for this. Or am I incorrect? It sounds like the major plus to Udocx would be the ability to view the folder...

Hi Timw, I would definitely recommend setting up multiple shared folders! I know this will save your customers a lot of time and really add value to the service you provide. Especially when every end-user gets direct access to the folders he or she uses most. Having this kind of conversation with your prospects is sure to give you insight into what is important to them and which solution will suit their needs best. You'll be surprised how many prospects aren't sure what the MFPs will be used...
