Re: Your Copiers Are Storing Confidential Information: What You Can Do About It

Question on this - do any of you that sell Lexmark get questioned about the ultimate ownership of the Chinese government? If so, what is it that you say to get them comfortable that they're safe?

We are still a dealer but we have not sold a LEXMARK in quite a while. They eliminated the MPS Elite program we were own, or at the least removed us from that program. I never had anyone ask about the security due to the Chinese ownership but it’s a great point. Honestly, I have found their support, to us at least, to be very subpar. Our support from brother has been phenomenal the last 2 years. Most of my printer clients are replacing the lexmarks with the brothers as fast as they can.

Taking a deeper dive, knowing that the U.S. DoD Inspector General recommends adding Lexmark to the banned list with Huawei (Lenovo and GoPro also), does that make you uncomfortable when pitching a Lexmark unit?

Hey Jason: Thank you for joining!! I have the Kyocera pricing I needed. However, I will need it again in the future. We can do something then. But, we have a promo for a Premium/VIP. For each competitive (recent) quote or proposal that you email me, I will comp you a FREE month for each one. Will that work for you? Art

Re: Toshiba Introduces World's First Copier Delivering Erasable and Black & White Prints

Imagine a CMYK copier, except remove the CMY toner and developer and insert a new Erasable Blue (EB) toner and developer. Modify the copier so that when the Erasable blue toner passes back through the heat of the fuser, it de-colorizes the blue to white. A new rules based print driver can automatically makes software apps like emails auto print in blue plus provide a new counter to show how much paper, CO2 and money you saved. The previous generation product appealed to too small a section...

I have heard from some of the secondary aftermarket suppliers wanting people to stock up before the tariffs take effect. Seems they are using it like any other bad news piece and trying to gain business now. I also wonder how this will affect the Japanese manufacturers.

Re: Printer or Copier technician needed for full time work - Carlsbad

What interesting is that this is an IT company looking for a copier/printer tech, just like many dealers making the move to IT, IT companies are looking to invade the copier service space. When I saw $20 an hour for New Mexico, I thought that was pretty good pay, but it seems the tech would be a contractor thus having to pay for medical, gas, tolls etc. Am I correct with this? Art

I think its a grey area. I've seen plenty of times where I've offered a TV or IPAD to someone and the owner tells the person who I worked with to keep it. Sometimes I have seen where the "company" keeps it....aka the owner takes it home with him.

Yes you are correct. The blinders go on when something is “given” to them. I’d be lying if i said I didn’t do it but the customer and everyone involved knows it’s there and listed on the proposal the whole time. I use it strategically with accounts I want and switch back and forth with things to keep competitors on their toes. Sometimes it’s a tv, sometimes it’s An iPad, sometimes it’s football tickets l, gift cards etc. it’s never the same for a particular machine or vertical market.

If its out in the open and done as a promotion as mentioned above as being part of the proposal there is no problem. If its done in the dark by the sales rep or if the customer demands a kick pack as a condition of doing business there is a serious problem.
