Ten Things You Need to Know Before You Lease or Buy a Ricoh MP 501SP or MP 601SP

Geesh, where do I start? When I first heard of the MP 501/601SP's, I thought this was just another mediocre multifunctional (copy, print, scan, fax) A4 device. I assumed the device was designed for low, low volume and would have a high cost per page. I was dead wrong in my assumptions. In fact, I couldn't be happier with the features, the speed, the hardware cost and the consumable cost of the MP 501/601SP. BTW, the MP501/601SP will not win any design awards, it looks kinda funky, but the...

I suggest calling your local Ricoh Dealer (not direct), because dealers can offer better service, better support and they support your local economy. I am sure that varies with location.

What do Millennial's, Horse Traders, Amazon, Ricoh MP 501SP all Have in Common?

I'm not sure what the title of this blog will be at this time, and as I get deeper into the story I may come up with it as I write. About eight months ago I received a lead from my service department about and old Ricoh 1035 that was still in the field. We didn't sell the device new, but somehow ended up as the service provider for a small law firm. No maintenance/supply agreement, just service and bill as needed. For six months I got not where with phone calls, was never able to get to...

I do get occasional competition from Amazon, mostly on A4 product, so great story and advice on how to deal with clients. I buy stuff from Amazon so it never hurts to check their offerings. Thank fully none of the Toshiba products that I sell are listed on Amazon. Many toners are listed but all of my copiers are under a cpc contract where toner is included at no charge.

HP, Lexmark, Kyocera, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, Canon, Sharp and Xerox are all guilty of undermining the dealer channel by allowing parts of their current product line to be sold on Amazon.

Amen to that, guilty as charged. Plus they won't do anything about it.

You can often buy your own products on Amazon for less than you can from your manufacturer. Dealers must be using their cash with and hold back to dump equipment on the web to hit their quotas.

Good story Art! Hopefully this isn’t indicative of the future wave of decision makers. I’ve competed against the Amazon quote as well. Asked for the link and found the device wasn’t shipping from the US therefore how could they determine if it was the right plug/power and also in this case, shipping costs brought it back in line with my number. Having some one millennials in my sales force and personal life, I think where our industry may suffer a bit is there lack of perception as to the...
