Re: PCS Director Embedded Receives Certification with Latest Ricoh Multifunction Devices

I have a few PCS Director installs but have never installed Print Audit. Is there anything different than the two products aside from branding?

Hi Txeagle24, Technically Identical, Print Audit builds the PCS Director software for Ricoh, Ricoh then Supports and markets the PCS Director product as their own. If you have current customers on PCSD you should have them update to the latest version, there are a number of enhancements to the embedded they may appreciate.

We became a Premier Partner with Print Audit so naturally, our orders now go through them. The main differences have more to do with timing of upgrades. For instance, we have had Print Audit Secure for quite awhile but PCS Director still doesn't have it I don't think. Also, I think you'll find that you can't "sell" the PA6 software if you are a RFG Dealer. All that having been said, all the things that people care about functionally, are the same.

Old Glory, Secure is now available through Ricoh. This latest version of PCSD now offers Secure Embedded, and the ability to process multiple jobs within a log in. The application works on all devices from Java 11 and older, except for devices with the 4.3" screen which Print Audit is currently developing.

Re: Can a Digital Copier Scan to Dropbox?

GrantW ·
Great Post Art. Xerox have a DropBox app available for their new ConnectKey devices but the user has to buy a scanpack which cover X number of scans and has a 12 month shelf-life. The advantages of having it on the MFD as an App is that any user (e.g. at a college) can log in to their DropBox account and print or scan to / from their own account securely. We've been doing the same as you and circumventing the charge or need for an app by pointing the scan to a DropBox folder on a desktop.

Re: Plotbase Dilemma Question

Why are they upgrading the PC???? Simply because Microsoft isn't supporting???? If so, my advice would be not to change a thing. The PC should be dedicated to the plotter and as such should not be doing anything out on the interwebs that would invite a virus in. Big can of worms to open on a machine that is that old especially with the lack of support from the defunct manufacturer of the Ratio controller. Opportunity to upgrade to a modern machine with internal controller.

Reuters sources say Foxconn’s Sharp is in final talks to buy Toshiba’s PC business for around $45.7 M. The two could finalize the deal as early as this week.

It's late on Friday night, for most their work is over for the week. Me, I need to do updates and frankly I've been lagging in my blogging as of late. It's not because I don't want to write, it's mainly because there hasn't been something that triggered me to write. Nothing unusual in sales, nothing unusual in the field and I've had my nose to the grindstone looking to hit numbers. Until tonight when I needed to post up my series "This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago this Week" .

Those were good times indeed. Big commissions and big points on the Ricoh credit card to boot. Very short lived though. I was doing one or two wide formats a month in addition to all of the mid-volume color machines that customers were buying. By 2008 it was over and the wide format market has never recovered. In the past 12 months I've sold 4 wide formats and only one was a brand new unit.

Re: This Copier Changed My Sales Life 15 Years Ago this Week!

I agree with you, by 2008 the big Aficio points and the big commissions were gone. All of the other manufacturers caught up with the technology. In addition Ricoh rested on their laurels with the 240W and waited way to long to bring an upgrade to the market place. I average about 1.5 new wide formats per month, GP is significantly down, but it's now a decent revenue generator. The Ricoh MP W6700SP is now three years old and needs a refresh. What does Ricoh have in the works?
