Re: The End Of The Day With Ray! Don’t Screw Up Your Defining Moment

mnchstr ·
I've got shut down customers asking how we can help them because they can't operate. It sucks for us but it sucks way more for them. I have "suspended" an MA for one because they asked" no cost no expense". I was lucky enough to get my PPP loan in on day one, approved and closed. I live to fight another day but I don't think things will change all that much.

Re: Sharp bond risk jumps as losses over 4½ years top $10 billion

Art Post ·
WOW! Some take ways from the article above: Sharp does not have core business that it can look to in the future 510 billion syndicated loan payment due March of 2016. That's almost 4.2 billion US dollars! Ouch! "The chances of banks calling the 103-year-old company’s loans are therefore low", seems to me like there are more cuts to come, more business units to sell. Banks accepted shares in the company earlier this year after it defaulted on debt payments

Mr./Ms. customer, "Ultimately your name is the one on the lease. If the equipment gets damaged or doesn't get returned, you are the one they will be coming after.

Re: Copier Scams Part Deux "Dude Where's my Copier"?

Old Glory ·
That's not really the point I was trying to make. The point is that a salesrep shouldn't assume anything as fact because the facts vary from dealer to dealer and lease to lease. That having been said, you are missing a big part of the lease equation and that is the "alternative forms of revenue" that comes at the end of the lease. Anytime a lease is ended effectively, the lease company loses the chance of an automatic renewal (evergreen clause), in some cases they lose the chance to sell the...

Re: Upgrading Memory on 2018d Fax Option

A Tech Instructor at Ricoh told me that memory cannot be upgraded on the 2018d with the all-in-one print/scan/fax option. The system comes with 192mb RAM and the fax option has 160 pages of fax memory. However, if customer is sending out 50 pages of loan docs using legal paper, and has more than 25% coverage, the memory cannot hold the load.

A mandate like that would drastically increase the monthly budget of non-profits and other cost-conscious organizations. The right lease term for a client isn't up to us as salespeople; it's up to the client. Meeting their needs (not setting yourself up to churn your base) should be the priority when discussing lease term options with a client. Some companies want the latest & greatest technology and are fine paying more over a shorter term to have that luxury. Others don't care about...

Thanks for commenting the first step to change is the ability to discuss why you should. As all of know change is usually a forced reaction unfortunately.
