Re: Charity Suggestions

JasonR ·
Thanks for the tip! It'd be great if everyone posted their personal favorite charity! The hunger site has a similar site http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com where they donate free food to animal shelters just for you visiting the site and allows you additional methods to give. One of those is: Feed a rescued Marine mammal.

Re: CBS NEWS REPORT ON COPIER SECURITY

SpartaGuy ·
I have seen statements on return forms from lease companies that state that the leasee is responsible for securing data that may be on the HDD. Regarding the show, CBS producers get paid to make reports for "good TV". I heard about this HDD concern a few weeks ago in an early morning "tip" from Clark Howard on CNN a few weeks ago. I Googled it at the time and found a print article. I think that the concern is valid but I think that it probably the hard way to find personal information. As...

Re: A4 Page Volumes

WFraser ·
We are currently seeing a correction in the market. What we sold for $15,000 three years ago we are now selling systems of equivalent value for less than a third. The market is largely oblivious to the selling features that used to give the higher priced systems their value. They didn't need the features to begin with. We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg..... New channels of distribution for enterprise print delivery, channels that tend to work off less robust margins than copier...

Re: Memjet Color Printers to the Rescue?

Art Post (Guest) ·
I see these types of products making a serious impact on our business. From what I see from the video, I can't remember ever seeing a color laser that would be able to output documents that fast, especially with the envelope output. It's the tip of the iceberg with probably faster products to come down the road. Potential Users: Churches Colleges CRD's Print Shops Anyone else care to add to the list of potential markets?

Thank you both Rick and Jason. We will definitely have them go over service contract invoicing and modules in great detail when we view the demo to see if it will suit our needs- great tip. Jason- being a user of both systems, your recommendation will weigh into my decision. Thanks again!

I just had a customer ask me more about collaborating files, he's sick and tired of zipping files and the emailing back and forth and can't keep track of the revisions to the documents. Other than this customer, we have many customers with sharepoint, plus we consult and install sharepoint. I beleive we're just starting to see the tip of the iceberg!

Re: Windows 8 Compatability

SalesServiceGuy ·
FYI. To be technical, Windows 8 introduces SMB V3, improving security features among other things. http://www.windowsecurity.com/...SMB-Connections.html Although supposedly backwards compatible with SMB V1 & V2 found on most current MFPs, the transition is not quite as seamless as Microsoft hoped for. SMB V3 will likely require firmware updates from all of the copier manufacturers to be compatible. I have no idea on the Universal Print drivers until you try them. It is only a short time...

Sure! How much time ya got? "Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users.

Re: Color Volumes on Aficio 6513 ricohaficio (43/M/Highlands, NJ) 7/16/01 5:23 pm Thanx for the tip, you really got to the meat and potato's of what we need to know. I have two 6513's in the field and both are doing well except for some minor problems (one with overscoring on the drum and the other printing a dark box at the end of the page) will keep you posted.

We have had several meetings on it and was supposed to be on board by now but back-to-back-to-back bad months put things on hold. Are you operating on OMD or La Cross? The real power is the relationship this can have with your service and sales records. If you are looking into this seriously, I would like to maintain an open dialog as we tip toe down this path together. jim@cbs-digital.com

Re: Ricoh Rumor!! New Strategy?

Shaja ·
We just brought in a MFX-4550 for evaluation. I printed off all the comments on this page and gave them to my service manager, and he thanks you for all the good insight. We have a tip to share back, and Ryan and Art will be glad to hear this. That annoying "confirm page size" screen that you get every time you open a paper drawer? You can turn it off. Go into the Machine Set-up/Admin Set-up screens, and poke around and you'll find it. We'll let you know how the rest of the evaluation goes.

Re: Tips on Buying Your First Color Copier

Art Post (Guest) ·
First of Six Tips to the customer: Tip #1: Buy a system that can handle 2 to 3 times the volume you'll think you'll do. Odds are, your color volume will grow and grow! Tip #2 When printing photo's make sure you know the print speed in the 1200 dpi mode! Tip #3 If you can get a duplex option, get it right away. Nothing is finer than a two sided proposal or quote in color! Tip #4 Understand your consumable yeilds and the average color coverage that the manufacturer quotes. Tip #5 Max the RAM...

Re: Notice to All Copier Employees

Subject: Redistribution Experiment Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed. Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, and again I laughed as he had given away his political preference -- just imagine the coincidence. When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I...

I suggest asking your technical department. Glossy paper is not recommended for the Ricoh products. Try using a silk paper it works great. This tip came from a printer friend of mine which uses the Ricoh's in a pay for print environment.

Along with I am sure thousands of others, I receive a daily email asking me to sign up for his Never Cold Calling System. I am surprised you don't know of him. He reckons that cold calling is an abject waste of good selling time. In fact he reckons we are all nutters, if we go out cold calling. Here's a link to his site. And please keep me posted on what you think of his "theories" ?

I have obviously been looking at the Authors own written reviews then Art, but I will take your word for it, that the reviews are horrible. In fact I would like to read some of them, if you can kindly tell me where to look. Like you, I still do a lot of cold calling, and every time I make a sale, I try to visit as many businesses near to the company I have just sold to, as there should be no better referral than a neighbouring business who has just bought from me.

Well, Since I'm alone on this one I'll answer my own question in case anyone else does come across this. Apparently the 2 shades in vector graphics under the plotter settings is the fix. For the life of me couldn't figure out what the "black and white" button does because it didn't change a thing? Tip my hat to Ratio for making things easy!
