JULY 2011

Leasing Industry Update The leasing industry seems to be recovering after some rocky economic times. At least that’s the contention of executives from CIT, Everbank, GE Capital, GreatAmerica Leasing, and U.S. Bancorp. We spoke with them for this issue about the state of their businesses, new programs and initiatives for dealers, and how they’re evolving to meet the needs of the managed print services dealer. Their responses paint a largely positive picture of the industry while also shedding light on how their businesses are changing to meet the needs of their dealer customers. By Scott Cullen

CIT Things are looking up at CIT as the economy creeps upward. “We’ve seen strong organic growth and overall improvement in our portfolio performance,” reports Ron Arrington, President of CIT Vendor Finance. “Improvements in customer losses and delinquencies are making it posRon Arrington sible for us to extend credit to more potential customers. We’ve also seen solid volume levels. When compared with the last 24 months, we’ve actually achieved record volume levels for Q1 2011, demonstrating our success with, and continued commitment to, the office technology market.” As the industry evolves so has CIT. With the incorporation of more elements into managed services solutions, there are a few areas the organization is focusing on to support their partners’ evolution to this model. Those include integration to ensure the exchange of information specific to assets, services, and other solution components, making the initial setup of contracts, as well as the exchange of information specific to recurring and variable billing for successfully servicing the customer relationship. “Without systems integration, accomplishing this becomes exponentially more difficult,” says Arrington. “Without people surrounding the use of systems to ensure questions are answered and information is explained, the impact of system integration can be lost.” Flexibility is also key in that managed services solutions involving multiple assets and services on assets that may not be part of a traditional lease require more than traditional equipment leases in terms of billing, collecting, addressing adds, moves, changes, and servicing. CIT is addressing those expanded requirements. Finally it comes down to execution. “While the managed services model is one that is familiar to CIT and one we have supported in the technology sector for many years, it is a newer model to this industry,” states Arrington. “Execution on the billing, collecting, remittance,

cash application, and other servicing elements is critical to customers embracing that model and our partner as the provider of this solution.” Arrington acknowledges the similarities between the cost-percopy model and MPS in that there are asset and service elements to the payment structure as well as variable components billed on a cost-per basis. “One of the challenges in putting together MPS lease programs is understanding all of the elements included in the solution,” he says. “MPS solutions can also create unique challenges in contract structure. ‘No minimum’, cancellation for specific reasons, and a much higher frequency of asset moves or changes add new levels of complexity. All of these things make how we work together with the solution provider critical.” CIT is broadening its services to their dealers and their dealer’s customers. “Our goal is to help our dealers win and keep as many opportunities as they can,” says Arrington. “With the advent of managed print services and the evolving needs of many end users, the complexity of generating proposals has increased. In recognition of this fact and to provide better support to our vendors, we’ve created our Major Accounts Group. This group enhances our vendor’s sales efforts by providing them with 1-to-1 personal support on all aspects of the deal.” Equally important to winning a new customer is retention and CIT has a Premier Client Services group that is responsible for providing 1-to-1 servicing to their major account leasing customers through one individual for the life of the lease. “We’ve also put a great deal of emphasis on providing automated access to account information for customers of all sizes,” adds Arrington. “So our Web portal access is not limited to just larger customers. We provide access to all customers.”

Everbank Delinquencies and bad debt charge offs are as low as they’ve ever been at Everbank Commercial Finance, Inc., according to Fred Carollo, general manager, Office Products at EverBank. Additionally, approval percentages are on the rise with Carollo reporting that they’re probably double where Everbank was last year at this time. continued on 19

What’s changed?

“We’re working with our dealers to put in place some innovative end-of-term options that lets the dealer make money again on the same user and lets the user keep the gear and extend it for a period of time, and obviously from our position, help our residual realization.”

“I don’t think you’re seeing a lot of newer companies opening up so you’re not seeing a lot of those applications,” says Carollo. “And I think customers are looking to buy gear again. The companies with money that have stayed on the sidelines and have good credit are coming back in the market and buying.” One area that Everbank is paying particular attention to is MPS.

Overall, Carollo feels good about the business.

Fred Carollo

“It’s at the top tier of our focus as a group moving forward strategically,” notes Carollo. “We’re looking for the dealers who understand MPS and are doing it right as opposed to the dealers who you have to teach about it.” Everbank is aggressive in going after those dealers, targeting them at trade shows and dealer meetings, such as Toshiba’s recent dealer meeting in May. They’re also growing their business through referrals and old-fashioned feet-on-the-street prospecting. “Our forté is truly partnering with dealers and having a limited number of dealers and doing a damn good job for them,” emphasizes Carollo. “We speak with some of the manufacturer reps about our programs and they recognize we have a better product in the MPS arena and they recommend us to their dealers.” As far as a move towards managed network services, it’s coming although Carollo doesn’t see it as that huge of a stretch from a leasing company or dealer perspective. “If you’re in the MPS arena, you talk about different tiers of solutions,” he notes. “There used to be three tiers, now there’s a fourth tier. It’s really just a pass-through item; it’s basically service/maintenance oriented, and it’s basically the outsourcing of the networked services. That’s something we do and understand.” While Everbank may not have as high a profile as some of the bigger leasing companies, Carollo feels they’re well-positioned to compete for a dealer’s business. “We have all the capabilities of the larger players, especially the larger bank-owned players, and we can fund any size transaction with extreme speed from a credit perspective. One of the advantages we have is we’re not as large as them so we can make changes or offer unique programs pretty quickly.” One burning issue he sees throughout the leasing industry is residual realization. More end users want to keep their equipment and aren’t interested in an upgrade, especially since the equipment lasts longer if serviced well. “With everybody trying to hold onto cash sometimes it doesn’t make sense to upgrade just to upgrade,” explains Carollo.

“Month over month we grow, grow, grow,” he says. “We’ve been growing for probably the last 14 months straight and our delinquencies continue to drop so everything is right in line. I’m quite bullish on the future. We’ve weathered the storm. What’s left is good and our group feels better than ever about what we have to offer the market.”

GE Capital At GE Capital business is back on track. “We’re seeing decreases in delinquencies, and as portfolios are looking better, businesses in general are feeling better and doing better from an earnGlen Clark ings perspective and that always helps as we’re trying to move some equipment,” notes Glen Clark, vice president of GE Capital’s office imaging business. “Certainly from a pent-up demand point of view, because there were a number of folks who made the decision in 2008 and 2009 to hold off on any equipment purchases, that seems like it’s driving some activity in the marketplace, particularly in the office equipment sector.” Like other leasing companies, GE Capital has found the managed print services movement is impacting their business even if there continues to be some confusion in the marketplace as to the definition of MPS. “When you think of managed print services, and you sit down with dealers, OEMs, and customers you can almost get a different definition from each constituency,” says Clark. “Oftentimes, it has to do with where they are in the process. We think of it at the customer level. The customer has always had and will have multiple devices—a multifunction device, printers, and they’re trying to get a better handle on what that fleet is costing them. When you look at MPS as consolidating the cost of operating that equipment under a single vendor, that adds more visibility to it and an opportunity to manage that cost, and that’s why you’re seeing customers open to the idea of pulling all these pieces together.” Is that changing the way GE Capital is writing leases or working with dealers? “When you think of the traditional CPC as the foundation for any managed print services engagement, that product hasn’t necessarily changed, but there are new tools that allow you to continued on 22 enx magazine

Leasing Industry Update

more efficiently manage a larger fleet in today’s environment and that’s an exciting development from a dealer perspective,” replies Clark. Clark expects to see more of GE Capital’s dealer customers take advantage of MPS, but he’s not about to provide a blanket endorsement to every dealer. “The future remains to be seen in terms of an evolution,” notes Clark. “I take it back to a traditional equipment seller in the marketplace transitioning towards cost per copy and I think that jump is the jump that’s probably facing a number of dealers in the marketplace. MPS is a little more daunting jump. If you’re already selling CPC, moving into managed print services is more of an adjustment than a complete shift. We’re seeing dealers struggle, for example if they haven’t switched to CPC, and perhaps are losing customers to those who have so they’re trying to make the jump from traditional equipment all the way to managed print services. That’s a pretty significant jump.” GE Capital’s history working in a CPC environment has them well positioned to meet the needs of the managed print services dealer. “We’ve developed some expertise that surround this cost-percopy portfolio of being able to manage lease assets and major fleets of assets in the marketplace and being able to track and bill multiple meter reads,” explains Clark. “That works very well with us. From that standpoint we’re enjoying this renaissance as it relates to the equipment.” However, Clark sees an evolution on the horizon that might make things a tad more difficult for leasing companies in general. “There’s another side to MPS from a customer perspective that’s more daunting, where the customer says, ‘I don’t want to own equipment, I don’t want to commit to a lease, I just want to pay you per month per image.’ That’s a product we don’t have a solution for today simply because that isn’t truly a lease and there isn’t truly a commitment, so it will be interesting to see how that develops.” From a managed networked services perspective Clark isn’t surprised that this may be the next big evolution, especially with the merging of technology at the customer level and the greater involvement of IT on the output technology side. “It’s the merging of the two technologies that creates some challenges because generally they’re working with a different vendor who’s providing their overall network and maybe their financial accounting software to somebody who’s just providing the equipment associated with the printers and multifunction devices. I think we’ll continue to see some evolution there.” Even though the industry continues to evolve and GE Capital is evolving with it, there’s still no time like the present and Clark

reports that approval rates are up as is their origination business, which grew by 50 percent in 2010 over 2009. The company’s delinquency rate also declined from ’09 levels and Clark remains optimistic for 2011. “Businesses are definitely reinvesting in people and equipment but we’re also positive about the industry in general,” he says. “As we move forward we’ll see a lot of improvement and we’ll continue to see it; it’s just a little unusual right now because in prior downturns you saw a big recovery quickly.”

GreatAmerica Leasing What’s driving business of late at GreatAmerica Leasing according to David Pohlman, executive vice president and COO, is some of the same old, same old traditional office technology sales, but managed print is having an impact as well. David Pohlman “It’s not like it’s new, it’s certainly been out there and we’ve been fairly active with it for six or seven years,” states Pohlman. “It’s been more mainstream the past three years where you have dealers that have integrated it effectively in their standard go-to-market approach.”

But the evolution towards managed print hasn’t changed the way GreatAmerica does business. “Our strength has always been in bundled billing, or what we refer to as single-invoice solutions,” says Pohlman. “That’s an area we’ve made tremendous investments in—our technology capabilities and integration capabilities with some of the ERP systems on the market, whether e-automate, Lacrosse, OMD— integrating with all of them. I think we try to make the dealers’ lives very simple when they’re managing a large number of meters.” Indeed, technology has become increasingly important throughout the leasing industry. “When you were just doing cost per copy on traditional copiers there were ways you could do that and allow for some amount of manual effort, but when you ramp up dramatically the quantity of devices and quantity of meters you’re trying to track and reconcile on a monthly basis, you can’t do it manually anymore,” says Pohlman. “Everything has to be highly automated and you have to have a lot of system-to-system connections to make it work well. There aren’t a lot of our competitors that can play there, and from our end it’s allowed us to elevate as a resource to dealers who desire to play in that world.” The biggest challenge of putting all those pieces together is the amount of time it takes to collaborate with all the different parties they need to integrate with to do this effectively. continued on 24

Leasing Industry Update

“You need to dedicate resources to those relationships to ensure you get the time and energy from those folks to build the connections and the systems and the integrations so things flow well,” says Pohlman. “The other piece is you need a systems group within your own organization that has a tremendous amount of ability to modify and adjust systems.” While managed print remains the industry’s mega buzzword, there’s a new opportunity looming on the horizon—managed network services. “Our more progressive dealers have almost evolved beyond managed print,” reveals Pohlman. “The next thing for them, and it was evident at ITEX, is managed networked services.” This will require the ability to create single-invoice solutions that allow dealers to bill a traditional copier on a per-page basis, managed print on a per-page basis, manage IT services on a per-seat, per-server or per-workstation basis, and the ability to integrate everything into a single invoice. “That’s part of the reason they’re selecting single-vendor providers because they want one source on all technology issues and not have finger pointing among different suppliers,” states Pohlman.

As the industry evolves in this direction, GreatAmerica has created a managed network subsidiary, Collabrance, along with various tools, marketed as Collabrance to help dealers move down this path. “This is one way where we’re providing a path for a dealer to enter managed networked services at a fraction of the cost of what it would take if they built all the infrastructure and hired all the resources to create a network operations center and a full service desk to support the remote elements of remote monitoring and remote remediation,” notes Pohlman. “The name is based on the word collaborate and the thought is the dealer owns the customer relationship and he has the necessary onsite pieces in place and Collabrance provides through the dealer to their end customer all the remote aspects—remote monitoring, remote remediation, service/help desk, and network operations support.” GreatAmerica has built a full network operations center, staffed it, acquired all the software tools, provided all the training, and all the things to allow a dealer on a per-workstation or per-server basis to offer that out of the gate in a profitable way. That is one piece of the managed network services puzzle, but do managed network services really make sense to the dealer channel? continued on 26

Leasing Industry Update

“Over the really long haul who controls the network ultimately controls the customer,” says Pohlman. “So for very large dealers a lot of them are going to make these investments on their own and probably do it themselves, but for medium size and certainly smaller size dealers the economic investment it would take for them to be able to offer this product is almost out of their reach.”

finance product becomes more complicated, allowing leasing companies such as U.S. Bancorp to continue to add value. “This economic downturn has caused us to look at all parts of our business model and become better in certain areas,” notes Verkinderen. “Front-end automation has been an area we wanted to enhance and certainly that has happened as we all focus on the credit side of the business.”

Pohlman admits doing this is cost prohibitive for many dealers. After all, for GreatAmerica, focusing on Collabrance and investing in the people, resources, software tools, network operations center, etc. was about a $1.5-million investment.

Of course, managed print services is a key area of focus for U.S. Bancorp. “We believe we have a great foundation that was built around the bundled solution that this industry has so successfully brought to the end users,” says Verkinderen. “The ability to document properly, invoice accurately, and report back to the dealer will continue to be critical to any MPS solution.”

“It may cost a dealer about a half million dollars [to do the same thing] but it’s still a pretty substantial investment before they sign their first contract,” acknowledges Pohlman. “We look at it and say if somebody wants to partner with us under Collabrance, their first contract could be profitable instead of waiting 5, 7, or 10 years to maybe never for payback. That approach is where we saw an opportunity to bring value to the market.”

U.S. Bancorp

He acknowledges that MPS is similar in a lot of ways from the old CPC model and that U.S. Bancorp has been involved with an MPS strategy for several years. However, as the MPS concept continues to evolve, the company has found that understanding how to manage the residual part of the transaction and the different solutions providers involved is critical.

According to David Verkinderen, executive vice president, U.S. Bancorp Equipment Finance-Office Equipment and Manufacturing Vendor Services, the company’s overall office equipment business is very strong right now.

“Another challenge will be the transition to a contract that is more and more based on usage and not as much based on the hardware solution,” opines Verkinderen. “Another important distinction is the ability to bill and remit revenue on equipment that may not be under lease. The end user wants a simplified billing process and we must provide that for them.”

David Verkinderen “This business has remained healthy during this economic challenge and we are excited about the future and the many opportunities that continue to exist,” he says. “We do have concerns about the supply issue we seem to be hearing more about. The portfolio remains very healthy and we expect that to continue and ultimately create more opportunities for the business.”

As technology and business models evolve expect to see an evolution in leasing programs.

As technologies continue to converge Verkinderen says the

“Since we service all areas of this market we get an interesting perspective on what the various channels are doing to maintain their competitive advantages,” states Verkinderen. “Areas of opportunity exist around financing a true software solution as that has become a more important part of the transaction. We need to be able to help our clients sell these software solutions. More complicated and customized invoicing has certainly become more relevant and we continue to enhance our ability to provide solutions on the billing side of the equation.” Overall, he remains optimistic about the business and meeting the needs of the dealer community going forward. “Our business was built on the innovation that the dealer channel has created and executed and we expect that to continue. We certainly get exposed to many different dealerships across the country and it is amazing how these businesses are constantly changing and innovating to keep up with the changing environment around them. They challenge us every day to meet their needs and this constant pressure to provide a better solution is what allows us to become a more successful business.

DEALER SPOTLIGHT

JULY 2011

Impact Networking CEO Frank Cucco Shares the Secrets to His Company’s Success Based in Waukegan, Illinois with eight locations in three states, Impact Networking has been one of the area’s most successful and progressive dealerships; and that’s because they do more than just sell hardware. CEO Frank Cucco and President Dan Meyer, 26-year veterans of the office technology industry, know a few things about selling office technology when they founded the company in 1999, but they were quick to realize that a successful dealership couldn’t survive and thrive on hardware sales alone—there had to be a strong services component. This month we chat with Frank about his dealership and the many services they offer to customers.

Fred Cucco, CEO

By Scott Cullen How’s business?

How’s that going?

Cucco: It’s been good. The first quarter was strong and last year we had our best net profit year ever.

Cucco: It’s fun. There’s enough business out there for everybody. Rick Taylor has done a very good job at Konica Minolta of keeping these markets clean and so there’s not a lot of infighting. I think he’s done a very good job of sending the message, ‘You grow your line of business and we’ll grow our line of business and the two shouldn’t cross.’ That’s worked very well for us.

How’d that happen? Cucco: Up until 2008 the company was growing at 30 percent a year, then in 2008-2009, you know what the story was there, we flat lined. Then we adjusted everything, got everything stabilized and became highly profitable. That was done basically through a controlled cost environment. How does the rest of this year look? Cucco: We’ll be able to grow our revenues again. This past March we had our best hardware month ever—$2 million. What’s selling? Cucco: Production—we got that Konica line a couple of years ago, which gave us access to high-end machines we didn’t have in the past.

You offer a wide variety of services. When did you realize this was the right strategic direction to be going? Cucco: It kind of evolved. Back in 1999 when we opened the company we came up with the name ‘Impact Networking’ because everything was converting from analog to digital and we knew that was the future. From there we wanted to diversify our lines of revenues. We didn’t just want to depend on selling copiers every month because as you know it’s an up and down situation with hardware so we created additional lines of revenue for the company to stabilize our revenues and profits. What percentage of your business are services versus hardware?

How have you been able to be successful in production since you’re probably going into places you hadn’t been able to in the past?

Cucco: About 25 percent is services.

Cucco: Because we have a sales force that is disciplined and goes out and find the business. We also have enough people on staff in other areas to help them secure that more sophisticated sale. We’ve been doing document management for a long time. We have a facility for scanning and archiving that a lot of companies just don’t get into. They just sell the hardware or they say they do it and bring in a lot of third-party people. We do everything ourselves.

Cucco: We want to grow that into what we do with hardware.

Do you expect that to grow?

What’s it going to take to make that happen?

Cucco: Our customers are midsize businesses and we basically compete with the direct manufacturer.

Cucco: It’s going to take time, good people, and being willing to make the investment. We had a very strong situation back in 2007 and we even cut back on that department in 2008 and 2009. Now we’re ramping it back up—I’m talking about our document management where we sell DocuWare. That’s a key growth area and most customers have still not discovered that software and what we can do for them with it. On those sales we run 61 percent margins. On copiers and hardware we run 33 percent margins, so it’s a much more important sale for the company.

Do you compete with your own manufacturers?

Are there certain services that are growing faster than others?

Cucco: Yes.

Cucco: We’ve done very well with scanning services this year. I don’t know why that is, but it seems like a lot of people want

Who are your customers and primary competitors?

Impact Networking CEO Frank Cucco Shares the Secrets

to spend money scanning their documents and getting them digitized. In the last month we did $100,000 in business in just scanning alone which was pretty good. That’s been growing, document management has been growing, and our creative services have been growing too. Another thing that’s been growing, because we have access to the Konica Minolta line, is our clicks and color clicks. In March we did almost $1 million in new service agreements. How do you market the services? Is that part of the message your hardware sales people take to the streets? Cucco: We basically have document management and wrap all these other things around it. There are five areas we focus on— creative services, scanning services, network and telecom, and then office equipment. These are all under the strategic services flag. Our traditional up and down the street sales force tells customers, ‘We can come in here and do anything that automates or prints in your office,’ and based on what the customer is excited about or what they need, then we have specialists that come in and back our sales reps up in all those different areas. The good thing for our sales people is they still get paid the commission on it. What was the inspiration for doing creative services? Cucco: We started two years ago and got into it because there was a company that designed all our marketing materials and our Website. I thought it fit well with what we offer customers, so I bought the company. Did you have to hire any additional people to handle that or did they come along with the company? Cucco: We hired our first person this year. That company came with five people in it. They had no sales [force], it was a wordof-mouth business. Because we tied them in with us, now these sales reps run into customers that want Websites or design work. We don’t do the $500 or $1,000 Websites, our Websites are $15,000 and up, and that’s pretty much it, anything else we don’t take. We were able to bring a sales force to this company and this year we hired an actual sales person for that team. This acquisition wasn’t something I wanted to make a ton of money on; I just wanted all my stuff designed in house and be able to turn on a dime, and if I need a flyer or a handout, I can get it in a couple of hours and get it to my reps and change and move quickly. I wanted to bring it in here to help us get to the next level. They do all our marketing, all our negotiation for marketing, and they do all the company’s marketing and marketing materials for our customers. That’s a couple million-dollar business now. Going back to document management, do you sell mostly DocuWare? Cucco: I think we’re the number three DocuWare company in North America. We’re not interested in selling a $500 solution. Most of our DocuWare deals are six-figure deals.

How did you come up with the concept for one-call MPS? Cucco: We’ve been doing it a couple of years. We’ve had success, not knock the cover off the ball success, but each month it gets better. How did you come up with the concept for one-call MPS? Cucco: That’s basically when we go to a lot of these seminars and these guys are telling you, ‘You have to capture these clicks on all devices and so on and so forth and combine them on one CPC contract.’ That’s what that is. That’s our strategy to go into accounts and take over all the equipment and service on the account. What was the biggest challenge of selling MPS initially? Cucco: Training—getting the reps to understand and be able to write it. Where did you acquire your MPS expertise? Cucco: Through the manufacturers. We also have an in-house trainer. Our previous trainer helped develop Toshiba’s MPS program. She helped us put that together and then went off and started her own consulting business. We have another trainer now. Training is key. I still haven’t figured out the right comp plan and I hear a lot of different things, but that’s the next thing we’ve got to nail down, a comp plan that makes sense. Is training still a challenge? Cucco: It’s in a good place and as we continue to go forward we continue to build on it, but I believe the whole MPS strategy and capturing those prints is the key to sustainability going forward. What portion of your business will managed print services encompass in the next three to five years? Cucco: It will grow substantially and we can do a month where we sell $1 million on clicks. We never would have been able to do that in the past, so this whole concept of saying, ‘Hey, we’re going to manage all your copiers and add all these other devices on there,’ it works. That million dollars is good business and it’s spread out over 36 months and we’re paid monthly, so there’s good cash flow with that and a lot of positive things that will come out of it. You’ve been doing this since 1985. What’s the best part of doing what you do? Cucco: I have the control to do what it takes to make people happy. I’ve worked at Savin, went to another privately owned company, had a company with my brother, and started Impact Networking in 1999. It’s been a good thing to do what I know needs to be done, to grow and get the job done where in past companies I wasn’t able to do that. What’s the most challenging part of being in this business? continued on 36

Cucco: It’s all positive, because we went through the worst of it and our sales did not decrease. Our net income is on the rise, which is going to generate cash to let us add more people and grow our business. I don’t foresee the situation in 2008 happening in the near future. I think we’re recovering and our ultimate goal is to get to $100 million. For us to be able to do that we don’t need to add any more facilities or buildings or all the things we spent the money on the first 10 years because they’re all in place. The foundation has already been laid, now we just need to continue our profitability, which will enable us to bring on these additional teams.

Focusing On Service Management - Part 2

Are You Running Service Or Is Service Running You? Part II- Call Baks By Weston McArtor

I

’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with many outstanding office equipment dealers in my career. This is the second installment of the series of articles developed based upon many quality practices these dealers use. Most of what I discuss here is not necessarily new information, but I’ve seen the same common problems in varying degrees in almost every dealer. With this in mind I’d like to highlight these common areas of concern and offer suggestions on how to solve the often-complex nature of running service. Problem Number Two: Call Backs Another common complaint from most customers and service managers alike is the call back. This is the seemingly inevitable call that occurs shortly after a customer has had their machine fixed. The first issue that must be tackled when addressing call backs is the yard stick used to measure what is or isn’t a callback. Since my business is based on standards, we use criteria that are based on how a model performs at a national level. This system uses a copies and/or day’s measurement, meaning the machine needs to produce a specified number of copies OR run

the specified number of days before the next service call. So if a product is introduced that does not perform as expected, the call back criteria must reflect this poor performance. Conversely, if a products performance improves over time due to modifications or fixes, the criteria must reflect that improvement as well. To set the call back standards in any other way is not going to allow you to accurately determine which calls should or shouldn’t be call backs. With the variety of products running the gamut from reliable segment one units that average 183 days between calls and high end color units that average 5 or 6 days between calls and digital duplicators that will go tens of thousands of copies between calls, it should be easy to see that there is no one criteria that would allow meaningful call back statistics. In addition, it is necessary to define the math used to determine the call back percentage. At BEI we define the math this way: if a customer calls in for, say, light copies, this is considered an EM or emergency call. If after the fix, the customer has to call back for whatever reason within the call back parameters set for their model, this call is a CB or call back. In this case, what would be continued on 39

the call back percentage? I say it’s 100% call back, because if they had been fixed correctly the first time there would have only been one call and it would have been 100% effective with no call back. A lot of systems would say 50%, because of the two total calls of which one was a call back. As trivial as this definition sounds, many dealers have lulled themselves into a false sense of call back nirvana because they are counting all the calls including no part calls, courtesy calls, PM calls, and shop calls among the total calls then dividing the totals by the call backs, when in reality it is the customer generated EM calls that should be the reference point. After all, isn’t the goal to have the customers calling you as few times as possible? The key component to reducing call backs is to be sure the techs are compensated in a way that encourages them make the machines run well, NOT simply to reduce the number of call backs. Time and time again I see dealers set up the acceptable call back performance levels only to have their techs manipulate their systems to meet “that” number instead of actually reducing the number of call backs. For example I had a customer whose techs are saying they were unable to complete better than 60% of their service calls because of no parts. They then wait to see if the customer called back within the call back parameter and if they did, they would cancel the new customer call and use the no parts call already in the system. Once the previous call exceeds the call back parameters, they will cancel the no parts call and take the new call. Needless to say, this type of numbers game playing cannot be tolerated. Our way of handling this problem is to pay the technician a per click commission for every copy produced after their call is complete. If a call back occurs, they lose those copies and thus the money for those copies. By taking the emphasis off the number of call backs that occur and changing their focus to the benefits of doing a quality job, you can get the needed results. This method also changes the punishment and reward. Most dealer systems punish the technician for having a call back rate that exceeds their pre-determined standards. This is done in an effort to encourage the technician to reduce the total number of calls that could be defined as call backs. With the BEI method, there is very little direct penalty for the call back. The few copies we are taking away impact their bottom line very little. What is impacted is the technician’s ability to manage a large volume of copies. Techs with high call back rate cannot manage as many copies as someone with a lower call back rate. Thus they are limiting their income as a result of not doing a quality call. Using this program, an average tech will lose about $15.00 to $25.00 per month because of call backs, but eliminating those call backs would net the average tech over $100.00 per month. Knowing this, how do you think your techs would respond?

remember specific service calls that happened two weeks ago, let alone 2 months. So it is unrealistic to expect them to remember what they did or didn’t do over the last quarter to earn their bonus. If it weren’t for the logistics involved I would pay techs every week based on the previous week’s performance. Paying each month balances the administrative labor involved with the desire to reward a technician’s successes for the prior month. Another benefit of paying monthly is that most techs live pay check to pay check and as such will most likely spend any bonuses they receive. Getting them used to having additional income each month will encourage them to maintain the standards they set for themselves or their income will suffer the next month. This will by default force them to sustain the improvements in their technical performance. Call backs can be managed and reduced substantially, but you must be willing to set and adjust your criteria, then be willing to provide the proper incentive to achieve the desired reduction in these excessive calls. You also must be able to provide accurate reporting for technicians so they know where they left money on the table, and what they need to do next month to get it. If you have any questions regarding BEI’s nationals call back standards or technician compensation program, please contact BEI Services, (316)772-0234 or Wes@BEIServices.com.u Mr. McArtor is the president of BEI Services, Inc. that now tracks every service call that occurs on over 3.5 million imaging devices, around the world.

It is vitally important to understand what the intended outcome is and tailor your incentives around those goals. Once the goal has been stated you must structure your compensation so that achieving those goals has direct and immediate reward. One of the most common mistakes made by dealers is compensating techs on a quarterly or semi-annual basis. This doesn’t work for several reasons. I believe that changing behavior is much like disciplining children. The closer the reward or punishment is to the behavior the better the results. Most technicians can’t enx magazine

MPS FOCUS

We Saw It In ENX Magazine

JULY 2011

SELLING QUALITY WITHIN MPS By Gil Wazana

IT STARTED WITH A BUZZ

Over the last few years our industry has been buzzing with Managed Print Services (MPS) and catch phrases associated with MPS such as Total Cost of Ownership, Printer Optimization and Activity Based Costs or Soft Costs. These concepts have been positioned as the fundamental reasons consumers choose MPS programs. My opinion, and I hope to capture some mindshare with this article, is that we may be overlooking the most critical fundamental reason consumers choose to do business and what we need to deliver in order to capture it, especially as an aftermarket.

THE BASIC FUNDAMENTAL

The most basic and proven fundamental that allows all of us to gain and retain customers is Customer Satisfaction. Customer Satisfaction creates loyalty and mitigates margin compression, but in many MPS engagements it is overlooked by virtue of how MPS is sold and what elements of the program are addressed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spoken to several of the major providers of MPS at both the wholesale and dealer levels. One element that is consistently not mentioned in MPS talk tracks is the quality of the actual consumable. In fact, in many cases sales people are being

taught not to discuss the consumable and to focus on the all inclusive, headache free environment that MPS is or could be. This in theory would work if some sort of standardization existed in the aftermarket and the quality of the consumables was the same from one manufacturer to the next, but that is obviously not the case. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintenance kits or toner cartridges, there are varying levels of quality available in the aftermarket and MPS is ultimately another vehicle to sell these consumables and to capture the reoccurring revenue stream.

STRATEGIC DANGER

The danger is that in most cases, MPS selling strategies commoditize the consumables. Thus blurring the lines between high and low quality products and asking the consumer to focus on the CPP and efficiency gains. This in a way is taking our industry back 20 years to the days when all dealers assumed they were sourcing a quality product and selling it as such, only to experience a rude awakening when the continued on 42

MPS FOCUS continued from 40

SELLING QUALITY WITHIN MPS

calls of dissatisfied customers came pouring in. Some of us remember this all too well and we need to educate our way out of duplicating the damage that was done at the outset of our transactional business as we shift into MPS and solutions based selling. Think of the share the aftermarket would have seized from the OEM if we would have positioned a true, high quality alternative, as opposed to the low quality products that scarred our industry’s reputation. In fact, the OEMs have retrenched and propagated using the argument that although more expensive on the front end, the quality and consistency of their products will deliver a higher value as they bring their MPS programs to the market. They will deliver this same message at a CPP level. They are simply promising a higher level of Customer Satisfaction.

THE ANALOGY

I would like to turn the tables and position all of us as the consumers and give a practical analogy. Imagine that I propose to you a Cost Per Mile program for your vehicular needs. You wouldn’t have a set car payment or lease payment, instead you would get a monthly bill for each mile you drove, some months more, some months less, the car, all the maintenance, fuel, and break fix is included in your CPM. Now ask yourself if you would sign on the dotted line without asking about the actual vehicle or if you would allow me to tell you not to worry about which vehicle I give you under the premise that it’s my service and parts costs should you have a problem. I’ll speak for myself and say that as a consumer, this would not fly for me. The convenience and the Cost Per Mile would not matter if I end up being stuck on the side of the road while I am on the way to making a major sales presentation; I would need to know if I’m getting a new car, certified pre-owned, or a rent-a-wreck. I would need to know the quality of service and the replacement parts, should they be needed. In most cases, consumers would not see a correlation between my analogy and their printing needs, but breaking down on the way to the presentation is the same as not being able to print the actual presentation while running out the door. Sure the MPS provider will send a technician in four hours or less or maybe overnight with a replacement cartridge or maintenance kit. But how will this disruption affect Customer Satisfaction? How many disruptions before your customer asks for OEM only, or asks to go back to transactional, or simply doesn’t renew their MPS contract?

DUE DILIGENCE

As a service or solutions provider, you should also consider what harm you can cause to your business if you don’t do your due diligence on the consumables’ quality or worse, just assume that quality is there. Not only do you risk the ability to retain customers, YOU are responsible for all the costs involved in servicing a customer; every service call and every cartridge that is thrown out prematurely, with little to no recourse through the three or four year contract. The worst part of it is that now 42

enx magazine

JULY 2011

you’re stuck, you built your cost based on a low price consumable, marked it up, and presented a CPP to your customer that is not sustainable. I have spoken to several providers that are in this predicament and it’s not pretty. They can’t insert a higher quality product in, so they are losing money while dealing with the servicing costs. At the same time, praying that they can renew the customer at a higher CPP so they can actually make some money back to dollar one. MPS SUCCESS A quality consumable is the linchpin to a successful MPS program and should not be ignored or hidden behind a CPP. Take the time to qualify quality partners on toners, parts, and service if you are outsourcing, as these are the elements that will allow you to earn a high level of Customer Satisfaction. Educate your sales people and your customers that there is a difference between MPS and Quality MPS. No different than there is a difference between a low quality toner cartridge and a high quality OEM alternative. Put yourself in the consumers’ shoes and ask yourself, knowing what you know about the varying level of quality in our industry. Would you sign an MPS agreement without knowing the quality of the consumables? Keep in mind that it’s our collective responsibility to educate consumers because if we don’t, they will find out the hard way, and it will likely be too late to make the quality pitch as we would have driven them back to the OEM. u

XEROX BUYS TONER SAVE TECHNOLOGY By Andy Slawetsky

I

t’s no secret Xerox just completed their acquisition of the UK-based firm, Newfield IT. Newfield is a strategic win for Xerox as it not only provides the copier company with a significant print and document management outlet, but it effectively takes the wind out of the sails of a major competitor – Ricoh, who was relying on Newfield IT to support their customers in certain markets. Indeed, within hours of sitting through a Ricoh presentation on Newfield and how successful their model is, we found out about the impending announcement. An interesting aspect of the Xerox acquisition has less to do with product and services distribution than it does with what Xerox gains behind the scenes. I would assume that in purchasing Newfield IT, Xerox also acquires Newfield’s technology, which includes a little known product called TONERmiser. TONERmiser is a competitor to the solution we have been writing about for months. The technology effectively reduces the amount of toner used by the printer or MFP, often with little effect on image quality. This is not your typical toner save mode. Why is this important? Would Xerox really want to reduce the amount of toner they sell and manufacture? The short answer is, “no.” However, let’s consider MPS engagements. Cutting the amount of toner used for non-Xerox products they support as part of these contracts will directly impact their supply mar-

gins. With that improvement, Xerox could theoretically choose one of several paths. They could reduce the amount of toner being consumed and keep their pricing the same, thus increasing their profitability on each deal. They could also reduce the cost of the contract to the customer while retaining current margins. Or maybe they could blend these approaches. It’s no secret that tradi-tionally, Xerox products were priced comparatively higher than many, if not most com-petitors. That’s why Xerox always sold value over price. However, that left a lot of business on the table they had to walk away from over the years, particularly in the SMB market where cost per page contracts are king. Considering these contracts, I would think it would be better to reduce the amount of toner being used by the customer (while retaining margins) than to lose the account completely. With that, I could even see Xerox eventually using this technology in extremely competitive situations as a way to level the playing field. This is all hypothetical. We are not aware of any plans at the moment that suggest Xerox is going to do any of this but if you were them, wouldn’t you take a hard look at this technology and the inherent benefits it offers Xerox? continued on 47

XEROX BUYS TONER SAVE TECHNOLOGY

Let’s assume Xerox does eventually integrate this technology into their copier and printer strategy to make them more cost competitive. We’ve mentioned in many articles a technology we evaluated that reduces toner consumption, often with no effect on print quality. Now, this solution has been bundled in as part of an MPS offering. I know what you’re thinking. “Yay, another MPS offering.” Here’s the deal with this solution; it all starts with gathering the data and the more information you have, the better. The developers provide you with tools that help you identify not only print volume on each machine on the network, but print volume for every device, whether they are on the network or not. They also take it a few steps further by giving you detailed information such as how many pages each user is printing from each application and even what the average page coverage is by application for every user. Not bad, right? Once you have a firm grasp on what the customer is printing, you can make your product recommendations and by using this toner reducing software, you can increase your margins on the deal. This is a no-brainer and every copier/printer dealer should be using this software. Email us at info@ industryanalysts.com and we will point you to the developer’s website where you can download a free trial. There are several pricing plans and all of them end with you making more money for something you’re already doing. Imagine going back to each of your customers and getting another 10% - 20% more on the supplies. Easy money. u by Andy Slawetsky, President of Industry Analysts, Inc.

MPS – The Power of Call Avoidance By Ken Staubitz

S

ervice departments are constantly scratching and clawing to save costs and increase efficiency to improve their bottom line profitability. Imagine if your dealership could resolve more than thirty percent of its break/fix printer calls without having to send a technician on site. How would this increase in effectiveness impact the department’s staffing levels? Would it allow the service department to support incremental revenue without having to hire additional staffing? What impact would this savings have on the company’s bottom line? Would it free up more cash in order for the company to invest in other areas? A call avoidance approach to printer service can significantly reduce the number of onsite break/fix calls for your service team. It comes as no surprise that labor (burdened) is 80% of the service cost when supporting MPS, and service departments have a tremendous amount of pressure to be price competitive while maintaining a desired margin. Not to mention the fact that more managed service providers are starting to make their way into the MPS space and are beginning to compete with the traditional copier centric dealers. These providers have their challenges; however, they already have the call avoidance procedures in place to maximize their labor savings. There are many benefits to call avoidance. It is possible to see over a thirty percent phone fix opportunity depending on the sophistication in call avoidance methods. Also the client can enjoy the benefit of increased uptime because they would not always have to wait for your technician to arrive on site to fix their issues. Imagine the opportunity to right size your staff, or the additional revenue your dealership could support without adding headcount, if you were able to maximize your call avoidance potential and fix 30 percent of the break/fix printer service calls without having to send a technician on site. The following is a quantifiable example of the impact of call avoidance. Let’s assume your dealership has seven technicians dedicated to break/fix printer support. However, due to vacations, meetings, sick days, or any other circumstance out of the norm, you are left with six technicians actually performing the service calls in any given day. Let’s also assume these six technicians are each able to perform 6 gross service calls per day, which equates to 36 calls/day, 792 calls/month, and 9504 calls/year. By just avoiding ten percent of the calls, one could continued on 51

avoid dispatching a tech out to 79 calls for the month, which also equates to just over half of a technician workload. This workload reduction provides additional time to do other things, i.e. quarterly cleanings (if this is your practice), review your printer loaner fleets, evaluate printer car stocks, staff a help desk, etc… Now imagine if you were able to avoid thirty percent of the calls (237) for the month. This call reduction is the equivalent to the workload of almost two technicians. Assuming your MPS initiative is experiencing rapid growth, the organization could support an additional $450k in MPS revenue without having to increase its labor cost. Depending on the size of your organization the financial impact through call avoidance can be significant. The way to achieve this high level of call avoidance rate is through a phased implementation approach. The first phase is through a technician call-ahead program. This has been a copier dealer best practice for years and relies on each technician’s individual knowledge. This is best tracked using a form of “phone fix” call completion code. In most cases one will see upwards of 10 percent call avoidance rate using such a practice. The second phase is through a basic customer facing help desk function. Many times this is staffed with knowledgeable personnel i.e. rotating technicians in/out on the help desk, use of shop staff, or use of training personnel etc… This phase provides a higher level of call avoidance success; however it is imperative that printer calls are routed to this support function so that the calls can be managed and tracked in the ERP system. enx magazine

SALES MANAGER SALARy SuRvEy For sales managers, past year has brought little change, big frustration

e’ve all heard that the copier industry was spared the worst of the recession, and this is largely true. But just because we got off easier than, say, the construction industry doesn’t mean it has been easy. On the contrary, the past few years have been extremely challenging for many dealerships, with employees in every department struggling to maintain profitability. For sales managers, in particular, the pressure has sometimes been extraordinary. “Even though the industry as a whole is doing well, sales managers have had to do more with less,” says Paul Schwartz, president of Copier Careers, a recruiting firm dedicated exclusively to serving the document imaging industry. “They’re trying to manage people and teams through difficult times. The worst is already over, but a lot of sales managers are now feeling that they haven’t been recognized or rewarded for their efforts over these last three or four years.”

The 2011 Salary Survey For more than a decade, Copier Careers has conducted an annual survey of document imaging professionals to determine how well they’re compensated, how happy they are in their jobs, and how well they rate their employers. This year’s Copier Careers Sales Manager Salary Survey reflects the responses of 958 sales managers who took the survey between March 1, 2010 and March 1, 2011. Over the lifetime of the survey, the demographic makeup of the respondents has changed significantly. A decade ago, 94 percent of all respondents worked for single52

location independent dealers. This year, only 58 percent of our survey respondents worked for the independents, with regional dealerships (21%), national sales organizations (15%), and OEMs (6%) filling out the remaining 42 percent. This increase in the number of respondents from larger organizations may be partially due to continuing industry consolidation, though it is likely also influenced by the natural maturation of our salary survey and the significant yearly increases in our sample size. Another key demographic change is in the ratio of male to female sales managers. While in 2002 women held only 7 percent of copier sales manager positions, today that number has increased to 24 percent. Though the industry as a whole is still heavily male dominated, the gender gap continues to shrink.

Even though the industry as a whole is doing well, sales managers have had to do more with less. A lot of sales managers are now feeling that they haven’t been recognized or rewarded for their efforts. Compensation up 5 Percent Since 2010 Last year, total sales manager compensation fell for the first time in the history of the salary survey, and it fell hard, from $121,911 in 2009 to $114,139 in 2010. This year, things have


improved, with average total compensation increasing to $119,640. Though this figure has not yet recovered to its 2009 level, it is nevertheless a welcome jump, a sign—we hope—of genuine recovery. The greatest increase was in commission (up $2,999 to $68,439), with base salary (up $2,502 to $51,201) close behind. Although the economy has played the most significant role in the lowered compensation levels of the past few years, other factors have also contributed, namely industry consolidation and the growth of managed print services (MPS), both of which have prompted dealerships to fiddle with their compensation plans, sometimes in a way that negatively impacts sales manager commissions. “These days, everyone is trying to squeeze every drop of gross profit out of their deals,” says Schwartz. “This puts a lot of pressure on sales managers because their commissions are getting restructured. Compensation plans, which were complicated to begin with, are getting much more complicated now. It seems like everyone is playing with the formula, but few are getting it right.”

Compensation plans, which were complicated to begin with, are getting much more complicated now. It seems like everyone is playing with the formula, but few are getting it right. While 2011 may prove to have been the year that MPS gained true acceptance throughout the document imaging industry, the year it will become truly profitable—especially for dealerships in small markets—may still be far into the future. The length and complexity of the MPS sales cycle continues to cause trouble for many sales departments. Until they can master it, and until dealers can figure out how to best compensate their MPS salespeople, we’re likely to see continued experimentation in sales compensation plans. Unfortunately, this type of experimentation is already causing disruption and frustration for many copier sales managers. The question is: how much longer will they put up with it?

Pressure to Perform This year’s sales managers reported that they work an average of 58 hours a week. This figure has increased steadily and considerably over the past decade, rising 26 percent since 2002, when on-the-job hours averaged only 46. These long workdays are clearly unsustainable, particularly considering that for the past two years they have generally failed to translate to better individual or team performance.

For many sales managers, these stressful conditions are beginning to take a toll on health, happiness, and overall job satisfaction . For many sales managers, these stressful conditions are beginning to take a toll on health, happiness, and overall job satisfaction. Only 51 percent of sales managers say they’re satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs, and only 45 percent say they’re happy with their compensation. While good salespeople and managers are never fully satisfied with where they are or how much they’re making, this year the dissatisfaction has a more serious quality than it has in the past. Frankly, most copier sales managers are exhausted—so exhausted that more than a few of them are considering leaving management altogether, says Schwartz. “In the last year, we’ve had a lot of sales managers tell our recruiters they don’t want to be responsible for a team anymore. It’s too stressful—they just want to go out and sell.”

Better Times Ahead The good news is that sales managers who are ready to move on—whether it’s a lateral move to another management position or a downwards move to a non-management sales position—are likely to find what they’re looking for. Copier dealerships are hiring again, and talented sales professionals with strong records of success are very much in demand. While economic uncertainty, consolidation, commission changes, and MPS will continue to create challenges for tomorrow’s sales managers, the veterans of the Great Recession will undoubtedly have the experience and the wherewithal to overcome them. -CC

This type of solution is commonly used by consumer electronics companies and by the manufacturers your dealership supports for technical support. As an example, if you are experiencing an issue with your home computer and you call the manufacturer’s help desk to get your issue resolved, the support person you are connected to is using a knowledge base solution to look up your issue and provide you with a resolution.

CI

The third phase of support takes it a step further by using a help desk function along with a dynamic knowledge base. This requires the use of a knowledge base management solution that allows help desk personnel to easily retrieve solutions by searching for key words, phrases or topics. As the knowledge base grows, less skilled staff is required to operate the help desk. Through this method your dealership could achieve greater than thirty percent call avoidance rate.

TOSHIBA SHOWS IT’S MOVING FAST FORWARD AT 2011 NATIONAL DEALER MEETING AND END-USER CONFERENCE FOCUSING ON CLOUD PRINTING, MOBILITY, SECURITY AND MDS IRVINE, Calif., (June 2011) – A record-breaking 650 professionals attended Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc.’s (TABS) 2011 National Dealer Meeting and End-User Conference themed “Fast Forward” at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas late last month. During the conference, Toshiba unveiled twenty new solutions-ready color and monochrome products with groundbreaking security and green features, as well as several new cloud printing, mobility and service solutions. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage in informative breakout sessions with practical information targeted specifically to either dealers or end-users, covering managed document services (MDS), mobility, cloud computing and security. Toshiba dealers and end-users also enjoyed a moving keynote presentation delivered by Frank W. Abagnale, best known as the person whose life story inspired the film “Catch Me If You Can.” The event concluded with a private party featuring live entertainment by legendary rock band Cheap Trick. Toshiba Success and Growth Chief Executive Officer Masahiro “Matt” Yamada opened the general session with an overall business update. He noted that profits have returned to pre-recession levels, Toshiba remains the No. 1 selling manufacturer in China for the eleventh consecutive year, and is now selling directly in 23 countries. In addition, Toshiba’s MDS business has experienced 78 percent year-over-year growth, accounting for approximately twelve percent of the company’s total revenue. “We are continuing to invest heavily in our MDS programs, cloud printing and security software and products, with a services-led strategy focused on selling business outcomes, capturing pages and emphasizing color sales,” said Mark Mathews, President and COO, TABS, who followed Mr. Yamada’s presentation. “The first quarter of fiscal year 2011 has delivered 15 percent year-over-year unit growth and 6.9 percent year-over-year revenue growth. In fact, March was our best sales month in over four years. With the new products, solutions and service offerings we have launching this year, I’m confident our dealers will continue to succeed and prosper.” Next-Generation Encompass Application Bill Melo, Vice President, Marketing, Services and Solutions, TABS, touted the revolutionary next-generation Encompass software that is scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter. This new version will include an Encompass mobile application, so dealers are able to access the total customer lifecycle management tool from their smartphone, tablet or other webenabled mobile device. The tool will help dealers meet and exceed customer expectations on-demand, anytime, and from anywhere. Service eXCHANGE Toshiba introduced Service eXCHANGE as part of the award-winning Toshiba social business network called eXCHANGE. Service eXCHANGE is a mobile application providing access to a critical information portal that technicians can access on-demand, anytime, and from any location, using a Toshiba MFP control panel, smartphone, tablet or other webenabled mobile device. Working and Printing from the Cloud In addition to the Encompass application, Toshiba also gave a sneak peek into solutions addressing the cloud and mobility which will be available later this summer. 56

DocuWare: Over 10,000 Customers Worldwide Internationally Recognized For Getting the Job Done Newburgh NY, – June 9, 2011 – Whether working in production, retail, service, government, health care, finance or any other industry – 10,000 customers have elected to use DocuWare’s integrated document management system since the company’s founding in 1988. One third of these customers are found in the U.S. The client base of DocuWare is constantly growing – now reaching more than 10,000 customers encompassing over 100,000 actual users. From the very beginning, the product was designed to be sold exclusively through an international network of Authorized DocuWare Partners. Today, DocuWare’s commitment to markets abroad is at the heart of its success. The German software company was founded in 1988. DocuWare Corporation, its first foreign subsidiary, was established ten years ago in the US. In 2005, DocuWare Ltd was added in the UK with additional subsidiaries in Paris (DocuWare SARL/2008) and Barcelona (DocuWare S.L./2009) soon thereafter. Available in 17 Languages - Half of the over 10,000 customers are based in German-speaking countries, approximately 3,500 are based on the North American continent, and the rest are found throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Worldwide success has been possible by offering the software in 17 languages, including versions, for example, in Spanish, Arabic and Japanese. “We started with the goal of developing software that would enable users to manage all of their documents in one central document pool – regardless of the document type or their industry”, remembers DocuWare co-president, Jürgen Biffar. “This core idea remains the same today as it did in the beginning; and we continue to develop our software using the latest technologies to meet the ever changing ways people do business. An example of this would be that all of the key document management features of our Windows Client are now also available in the Web Client of our newest version, DocuWare 5.1c.” With DocuWare Online for Enterprise, the company will be offering its first Cloud solution in the second half of this year. Administrative tasks are drastically reduced and the leasing model helps companies react more flexibly to organizational changes.

JULY 2011

FREE TECH HELP Subject: Panasonic DP2330 – Dirty Copies

Question: Anyone working on the DP2330? There’s background and toner on the back of the copies. If you can let me know what might help this problem. Thanks. Answer: Yep seen it. It’s a bad batch of toner. Get a new one (make sure it’s not the same lot as the old one) then turn F6-21 to a negative 80. After that, make a copy of a black original in F3 until it wipes out ALL the toner, and I mean ALL the toner. Then put your new toner in and set F6-21 to negative 20 and you should be good to go. If you don’t wish to do all of that just change the toner and the developer. Answer: We’ve had a few bad batches of toner lately (Pana OEM!). What I do is just detone the machines and set F6-21 to around -50,-55 .With good toner, F6-21 is always between -28 to -40, and with most of them being 36. Answer: You can’t push the life of the developer on these units, especially when it needs toner. It will overtone at replacement—pay the $$ and replace the developer at 60 or 80K. Answer: We have a couple pushing 200k on the dev with good copy quality. The minimum we do on a well-kept machine is 120k. Of course if mag gap is not ok, the dev will not last.

Subject: Canon Image class MF6530

Question: The rear section of document feeder is raised just a little causing blurred copies. I’ve seen this on two of these machines this week. Is there an adjustment? Answer: Replace hinges #FM2-8210-000

Answer: They also recommend replacing the ADF base frame #FL2-3983-010 with an updated one to prevent a recurrence. Answer: Which leaves me to wonder, given the time it takes to swap lower frames and hinges, did they re-release the Doc feeder with the updated parts?? I’m guessing that it’s a big fat NO! Answer: I’ve done it and it’s not that hard. It does make a difference in the hinges being more secure where they screw into the base. Answer: The “kit” with the new frame and new style hinges (which are used on the last series of those) has thicker hinges which seem to never break or chip the frame.

Subject: Toshiba ES353 growling

Question: This dog has the KD1012 LCF installed and each time it feeds a piece of paper it growls, and I mean loud. Sort of like a grinding noise, but not quite as sharp sounding as gears grinding ... more like the sound of a toothed belt slipping on a pulley sort of growl. One of my work partners suggested that it was the paper feed clutch (you know, the “I see this all the time” sort of advice). I replaced the clutch and it still does the same thing. Then it was suggested to me that it could be the LCF motor. I didn’t buy that idea, but just for grins I replaced the LCF motor along with everything else in the area of the motor (gears, belts and such). Still making the noise. Maybe I’m just too old to pinpoint the noise, but I really cannot tell exactly where the heck it is coming from down there, even with my head all but shoved in the tray along with the paper. I’m about ready to just give the customer some earplugs and tell them to just live with it. Answer: Try the torque limiter and new feed/separation rollers. Also check the two gears that drive the sep roller shaft. Answer: I had one where the side gate door rollers had come loose on the LCF. I think that was making the noise; the spring in the gate door had come out of place.

Question: Thanks.

70

Answer: Yup go with the full rebuild. Just replacing the hinge is a waste of time and money since the problem is the tab breaks out from the base plate that keeps that hinge from pivoting on its mounting screws. New base plate has a thicker tab, and the new hinge has a removable insert so that it can be used on a new or old style base. With a great deal of patience and a pocket knife, tweaker, spring hook, or thin metal ruler, the white pad can be transferred from the old base plate to the new one; but I would recommend having a new one even if you don’t use it. Maybe buy one white pad for the 2 repairs and see which one you can get transferred. Good luck.

Answer: Open the side lower door (the one on LCF) the assembly that holds feed rollers and interlock may be loose; a broken pin toward the rear can cause noise. Good luck. Answer: The frames that hold the rollers and drive shafts “breaks free” from the rear frame (pins get broken) and it can make a hell of a noise. The only other thing I’ve done is to remove the Mag Clutches and take apart/service them properly. They get noisy and can drag a lot. This of course causes improper feed and jams. One of these days, a buddy of mine and I are going to make a mod for that plastic piece so it doesn’t break out of the frame. I had one brand new out of the box from Toshiba that was broken.u Tips appearing in this section are reprinted courtesy of Smarka! The Copier Tech’s Info Source.

At Toshiba, we’re taking old toner cartridges and turning them into environmentally-friendly eLumber™. We’re then using this eLumber to build city benches throughout the country. It’s just one of our pioneering environmental programs that results in zero-waste-to-landfill and zero-thermal-recovery. And a lot of nice places to take a little break. Partner with an environmental leader. To learn how, contact one of our Authorized Toshiba Distributors.
