Re: Desktop Shortcut to Scanned Images via store to HDD in scanner

Its pretty strait forward. Default the scanner to Store File to HDD. At the PC create a desktop shortcut to Web Image Monitor. Have customer click on Print Job/Store File -------> Document server. They will be able to download the document. The real problem though is you are encountering a lazy IT guy. Any IT guy worth his salt will help you set up scan to folder.

Re: UPDATE 3-Canon buys Dutch Oce for $1.1 bln, fights Ricoh

KM has strengthened itself dramatically in the past 5 years and while losing this distribution channel is a kick in the rear, the biggest impact will be losing the high end Oce'. Would tend to think that will lead to KM getting deeper in bed with Kodak. I worked for Oce' for two years and frankly they are going to have to learn how NOT to sell on the lowest price now that they are being directed by Canon.

I confirmed this w/ my Lexmark DSM, but he says that the re-branded models they're providing for Ricoh will not have the same solutions set as the Lexmark systems available through their BSD channel and that they should have a higher CPC. I'm not sure what the launch date is, because it was originally supposed to be first quarter of this year, but maybe my Lanier DSM meant Q1 of their Fiscal Year, which would mean after March.

It will be interesting to see where the loyalty lies with this group of execs.

I'm thinking Ricoh turns even further away from the Dealer Channel in the years to come.

Re: Ricoh Ikon Letter

Old Glory, you are way off-base regarding profitability to Ricoh on an $8,000 sale through the dealer or through their direct channel. When Ricoh sells to the dealer, the dealer is responsible for all ofthe end-marketing expenses related to the brick-and-mortar + sales rep expenses. When Ricoh (or other mfrs) run their own branches, there is a tremendous amount of overhead associated with that operation. Hence, this is one reason why Ricoh's dealer division, while smaller, was the only part...

Re: Ricoh Ikon Letter

It would seem that it all depends on where you structure your profitability. Since Ricoh is a Japanese manufacturer and sells its product to the US Ricoh company and then US Ricoh sells it to a dealer or direct, the profits can be structured to be very little if any in the US and very profitable in Japan. Ex: cost to manufacture is 10, sell to US mfg. sales concern for 20, US concern sells it for 22, dealers or direct sell it for 24. The cost of goods to the US is high and the profits remain...

Well, my view the situation you describe is this: If Ford wants to sell cars directly, that's fine and they can do that. If they instead choose to sell cars through dealers, they do not need also come into the same market as those dealers and hang a big banner saying "$4,000 cheaper than not buying direct!" "Get better support by buying direct!" All I'm trying to say is this: If you have a dealer channel, support it. If you think direct is the way to go, just get rid of dealers. Simple enough.

Re: Lexmark Dealer MFPs vs IT Channel MFPs

The MFP's and single-function printers available via the Lexmark BSD channel are keyed differently than their counterparts that are available online & through the VAR channel. When orders are placed via Ingram Micro or TechData, a BSD receives discounts on both hardware and consumables. The impact the discounted consumables have on lowering the CPP is pretty significant, at least enough so to keep my customers from buying the hardware at a slightly lower price online.

Wow, what comes around goes around right, could it be that copier history may repeat it self in the near future and become more dealer orientated (especially due to financial conditions), one would tend to think that this is the logical course of action in order to increase profits. Maybe ib the future when you look at the time line of the industry as whole, you would then see a 20-25 year blip where direct channel was seen more as a fad, rather than a good business model.
