If they offer them for the price of black & white units, yes. If they try to have the same price point as current color systems, they would lose out on price to any manufacturers that continue to make b/w only systems. Additionally, they would have to have a multi-tier billing system for color so as to not scare off people that have intentionally stayed away from color. The industry billing systems (e-Automate, OMD) would need to make that easy to manage & bill as well.

This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago, The First Week in June 2003

WooHoo! Finally a decent Saturday at the NJ Shore. For our family it was Cousins Day at Monmouth Park in NJ. Cousins get together to share some food, share some drinks and get to place some bets on the ponies. I love going to the track and wish I had more time to do it. While I only placed four bets, I was able to come home with $300 in profit. Not a bad day at all. What was more interesting is that I lost a super trifecta bet that would have paid $18K. Next time I'll pay more attention to...

Canon C5240A Questions

Art Post ·
I have the opportunity to upgrade some Canon C5240A's. Couple of questions for everyone. Are these still current devices or discontinued? If discontinued what model would be the current replacement? I'm seeing .0126 for black on their current MA is that norm or high? I'm seeing .077 for color on their current MA is that norm or high? C5240 is 40 pages per minute in color and black correct? Thanx Art

Re: Unlimited Black and Color Page Maintenance/Supply Plans

Yes, I've seen this from authorized dealers. 6 months later they called the customer and asked for their meter count and sent a bill for $700. More and more I'm seeing copies included in the lease. IMO that's cheeky, especially when a lease buyout is involved. How do you pick that apart? A customer shouldn't have to pay for service not rendered.

IKON (Ultimately Ricoh) got sued for this "Flex Lease" Practice, where they just kept rolling things in and rewriting the whole 60 mo lease. Eventually, after the lawyers all made their money, Ricoh Settled the "UnFair Business Practices" Law Suit. Japanese companies typically don't like to go to court. At least that's My $0.02 Vince

Art, New model is C55XX. The rates are a bit unrealistic (high). Depending on a guaranteed base (or not), more like .065 and .01 The C5540i

I think those rates are low based on what we sell our contracts at but I know everyone is in a different market. The extremely low rates don't seem to get thrown around our city as often as others. We keep most everyone around .013-.017 for b/w and .08 or higher for color.

I had the chance to meet with the prospect yesterday. Canon is out of the picture. However the users states they are using secure print as a default from every PC for every print job. Is this a standard feature or is it a MEAP solution type add on?

Re: Color Cost Per Page for 2 Cents, Are You Crazy?

JC ·
Sorry, Art, this will not happen. If you spread the cost by charging more for black and white, some would buy it and only run color. It's already expensive to run black only on a color device, costing 2 to 3 times or more than on a monochrome Production machine. And even at a penny for service and supplies, monochrome margins are low on color production units.

Not just color. We could see a big consolidation of speed bands too. If certain manufacturers can make low cost 40 and 50ppm engines that retail for under $4,000 do we really need to have 25ppm engines that retail for over $5,000?

Agreed that the cost of color would have to be the same as the current black systems. I for one would like to only offer color, I think it would be better for the industry. I also believe that the color machines don't cost that much more to make the black systems. I'd bet that the margins are the 20-25-30 ppm nlack systems are huge from the manufacturing side.

Sometimes I just don't understand.......

I was told the other day that we are not going and not allowed to sell the lower A4 color & mono MFP's from Ricoh. Thus, if someone wants color and the volume is very low, I have to either walk away or try to sell them the color A4 MP C307SP. With a black device, it's the MP 301SPF. Now, I have multiple clients that have larger A3 devices that have bough many of the lower A4 color & monochrome devices. Usually I'll sell the black devices for about $1K and the color for $1.3k.

We don't have a rule like that but I've pretty much self imposed my own similar rule. I wind up putting in just as much time and effort on those little machines as a $10,000 A3.
