Re: More Info on "Subscription" Services

Well it's not exactly a subscription service. Take Ricoh ICE for example, if a dealer wants to resell it, it's available for purchase for 1-5 year terms for a decent discount. Now I've heard the same as you, that with the new intelligent series that users will be able to download apps and pay for them monthly. Which leads to a heck of a lot of questions. Who gets the comp? Is a credit card info residing on the hard drive? Who's going to support it if it's downloaded directly from the...

We are often guilty of looking at everything through a dealer's lense. Ricoh doesn't look at anything with an eye to the dealer channel. When you look at SAS from the Direct perspective things make more sense.

I've been hearing more manufacturers use term "subscription" services when releasing new MFP software/solutions (i.e. Ricoh's Cloud Workflow Solutions/Lexmark's Cloud Print Infrastructure). It sounds like the MFR is offering software/solutions as a monthly fee with no additional annual investment or long-term contract. Basically, wondering if this is different than previous cost structures or just a different way to capture the same revenue but as a recurring stream (vs. a lump sum)? Looking...

This will be interesting. For the model they provided a monthly number there is a six month contract. Curious if they took the manufacturing cost and divided by six months. Another question would be if there is a monthly charge for scans? Would like to hear from others if you know more about this subscription service

Speeds and Feeds of Copiers

Art Post ·
I had a lot of wind shield time today and it got me thinking about the recent thread that Kyocera was moving with speed licensing for some of their MFP models. I've always been a huge proponent of reducing the amount of MFP models that we offer to our clients. I believe there is no need to have 5 color and 5 black A3 models for clients and or sales people to choose from. We as an industry need to simply MFP offerings to dealers and clients alike. I would like to see one A3 model to replace...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Art. Super interesting stuff. I expect that we'll see Kyocera expand this option across a wider portion of its portfolio for these very reasons and more OEMs will explore this concept as well! Lisa

ty for the information on these. Just a note about printing slower, all MFP's can print slower if you activate the thick paper mode. I understand that no one would want general printing to be slower. However the slower printing speeds might be a difference maker because no one else speaks about it. Benefit to the end user is better color quality on thicker stock. Please keep us informed when the new models arrive! Thank you!

Currently the new model with speed licensing is the Taskalfa 2554ci 25ppm color that with an additional license can be bumped to a 3554ci with no additional hardware. We expect to see (not confirmed) a 45/55/65 as well some time in the future. Like you mentioned this cuts inventory costs and keeps things simple. Once a machine is registered at a certain speed you can't go back. So you can't upgrade a 25ppm to a 35 if a customer changes their mind down the road. Let me know if you have any...

Is 1 Rate aka Flat Rate Billing Passe

Is 1 Rate aka Flat Rate Billing Passe in a Post Pandemic Business World? Since July is all about prospecting I've been able to pay many visits to Linkedin for conducting my research. Today the post below stood out from all of the others..... Yes, it seems Kyocera is going to have their own version of the 1 Rate aka flat rate billing for MFP's. For me the ad implied that the "one fixed rate subscription will be coming to a dealership near you soon". I had a rather long chat with an industry...
