If you've been around as long as I have, then you're old! No, really it's that you've seen or heard about some of the coolest marketing programs from our beloved copier manufacturers.

Re: Cost Per Copy and Rate Lock

Art Post ·
Well do rate locks also, but there has to be some GP in the deal, since it will come out of the sales person "skin". You should be looking at the T's & C's of the agreement because they may charge excessive dollars to ship supplies. (charging $20 per shipment per month can be quite the upcharge). Also be on the look out for verbiage in the maintenance supply agreement that states something to the effect, "that we can cancel or charge you more if you use too much toner aka fill) Hope this...

Jus an FYI - on low volume devices, or on local connected devices, we go with a flat rate per month. Much easier on all, and several years worth of history doing this in many marketplaces shows we are making money on flat rate deals.

Cost Per Copy and Rate Lock

TML ·
I've bumped in to this a few times in the last few weeks and wanted some input. Lately we've been up against a plethora of lower tier devices (Kyocera/Sharp/Toshiba boxes). In 3/4 of these situations, several of the competitors have been able to lock clicks for the term of the lease. They're coming in at $.0069 - $.0074 / $.04-$.05. Is this the new normal or has this always been an acceptable locked click rate?

Help with Ink Conversion to Cost Per Square foot

We have an ink cartridge that holds 100ml he cost for the cartridge is $65. $65/100 = .65 per milliliter of ink I'm told that the amount of ink used in a standard wide format drawing would be under .1 milliliter per square foot. Let's call it .1ml for one square foot. The cost would then be .065 per square foot. Is this correct?

Question: This makes little sense. If it is "unlimited clicks" but at the same time if the customer goes over their typical use pattern there is an overage charge, then how can it be "unlimited clicks"? I must be missing something! From the post: Here's what's not so good for the sales person to chat about: If a client use of supplies rises above the typical use pattern (determined by KMBS) the client would need to pay overage charges

Re: The Flat Rate Program "The Good, the Bad & the Ugly"

Then let me take it one step further - is there anything misleading in the way it is being presented? Is there any way to see the offer in writing from one of the reps out there? It one thing to "say" it is unlimited clicks - it is another thing if it is writing. Doesn't seem to be unlimited clicks in any way shape or form to me. Is this going to give Office Equipment Sales People a bad name out there? I think it needs to be exposed if this is a scam.

I'm not seeing this as a scam, but just a company protecting it self if a user is producing too much color on a page. personally, I think the reps need to tell the "entire" story and explain any potential pitfalls.

Re: The Flat Rate Program "The Good, the Bad & the Ugly"

Art Post ·
IN reviewing what I write about excess clicks, the wording should have been " to pay for improper or excess use". I have changed that in the blog and I apologize for the mistake. However, it stills means that there will be some time of charge. It will be interesting to what happens once many of these contracts are in the field. For certain users this will be an excellent opportunity to reduce costs, especially with those that have a large fleet of printers.
