Buyers Are Liars!

Ah, I need to get this off my chest now. Working on a Production account for more than two years. Did the demo for the client (almost two years ago), followed up and had some meetings over those two years. In fact had a meeting last month where the client agreed to have the C7200 installed on Presidents Day. I had to get the docs ready prepped (so many options) and had to email them for the final review. At least a few times he state, "be patient once the existing lease expires you will get...

Ricoh has a webinar scheduled for tomorrow, "National Kick-Off". I 'm a Savin dealer and really have a hard time staying as a sole source dealer after some of the stuff I've seen over the last couple of years. We're starting to feel like Beta testers out here. I'm not sure if I should be happy or insulted if they try to sell me some of the school districts and counties they've taken from me. We'll see tomorrow I guess.

Interesting webinar. It makes complete sense for Ricoh to do this, after all they have been selling hardware and service at dealer cost or below and just shipping supplies to anyone who asks. They finally figured out that they can't actually make any money doing that. I had a direct proposal that said "we don't charge for excessive toner usage (we do) we don't even care how much toner you use". One of the colleges I used to have is paying $0.03 for 100% coverage 12x18 single clicks on a...

MNCHSTR, We stopped being a single line savin dealer the day our rep came in after the Ricoh/IKOn merger and said "if you walk into an account that has Ikon you should turn away and walk out. And if you're lucky enough to get in the organization you will get killed by RBS pricing." After that we realized we wanted to take on multiple product lines. We started with Samsung and then went to Kyocera. Kyocera last only about a year or so until we dumped them, and we added Canon. Now we have...
