Does anyone have thoughts in regards to the impact of Xerox transferring 28,000 accounts to XBS? This was just announced during Xerox's earnings. I have to imgaine there will be major upgrade activity from the XBS dealers...speculation anyone?
I think that many XBS dealers will be in total did array with the transfer of Xerox accounts. XBS will have to hire and training sales people, techs and admin. In additional all of those peeps will need training.
I saw this happen with Ricoh Corp transfer to dealers. Many dealers were overwhelmed. I imagine the same will happen with XBS.
Hope this helps
I've heard that the previous GIS dealers will retain their name and continue to operate "independently" but now they have to abide by Xerox Direct's inflexible pricing structure and very inflexible terms and conditions. I'm expecting that previous GIS players in major markets will now have even more red tape and their SMB accounts will start to feel the pain sooner then later. Curious to hear in the next months/year how those who compete frequently against GIS, are now successfully going after those once loyal GIS customers.
Guess the race to zero didn't work out so well for Global. Now will the new entity and the dealers honor the race to zero contracts they wrote? What about unprofitable MPS contracts?
Another _BS Branch. How original!
