When a Sales Rep leaves to go work for a competitor

What is the best way to counter when a former sales rep leaves to work for a competitor with all or part of your customer list and lease expiry dates? I know that you can demand that the sales rep signs a six month non compete clause at the beginning of employment. This does not prevent him from sharing that info with his new employer.Read More...

Heading into a closing conversation with a prospect is always nerve-wracking. No matter how impressed they seemed during your demo or how enthusiastic your champion is, there's always a chance you'll lose to the competition, they'll decide to postpone their decision until next quarter, or they'll ask for a price you can't deliver. A “yes” or “no” hinges on far more than just the specific closing sentence or question. But as you've probably seen, using the right words can definitely make a...Read More...

Ricoh Class Driver and WSD port

For at least the past 2 years we have seen Windows installing Ricoh Class Drivers with a WSD port (monitor) on new computers. This results in the user getting a driver that produces slow printing (incredibly slow like 45 minutes for some simple documents) or other negative results. After much frustration, I have found that if you use Web Image Monitor you can go into TCP/IP v4 and turn off WSD (Printer) which should keep this from happening going forward. I was just wondering if anyone else...Read More...

Im not too sure that we will be able to survive only selling copiers etc. Over the last year or so we have also added telecommunication/voip and CCTV. It might take time but this digital disruption will hurt us if...Read More...
