MARK YOUR TERRITORY By Jim D’Emidio

A

s a secondary OEM in the imaging industry, Muratec has a unique perspective on the market. We have dealers of all sizes, with annual revenues ranging from under $500K to over $180 million, and we’ve seen almost all of them struggle when implementing a Managed Print Services (MPS) program. The dealerships that have succeeded in MPS have invested in the right people and partners to develop a comprehensive program that covers everything from printer assessment to full document workflow solutions. However, it’s been our experience that a majority of dealerships are still struggling with the development of an MPS program and are trying to figure out where they should start. Now, I don’t pretend to have all of the answers, and I’m certainly not clairvoyant; however, I do believe that managed print services is changing how our industry delivers document solutions to our customers and has become a significant growth engine for the dealerships that have built a complete offering. So to those dealers that are still looking for an onramp into managed print services I have a very simple solution: mark your territory. You heard me right. Your customer’s office environment is your territory and every device that prints, copies, scans, and faxes is within your territory. You should do everything in your power to protect these devices from your competition, both traditional copier-dealers and OEM direct branches, as well as a new breed of competition – printer-centric VARs and network services providers. So how do you “mark” these devices? Simple. Attach your dealership’s service sticker to each printer / MFP device throughout your customer’s office. This includes both networked and stand-alone devices; basically any device that produces a printed page should be your target. Sounds simple, right? It is. And, it’s the easiest, most risk-free method of positioning your dealership as a managed print services provider. But what about all of the other “stuff” you keep hearing about? Fleet assessment tools, OEM-compatible imaging supplies, printer parts, document workflow software, etc. All those components are essential to a successful, all-encompassing MPS program; however, they are components that can be acquired and deployed over time. So what’s required in order to mark your territory? Three things: 1. An active customer base. 2. Service stickers with your dealership name and contact information (you probably already own these if you offer service on your copier fleet).

3. A customer “fleet” sheet that includes the customer name (and/or number), printer model(s), serial number(s), office location and condition (based on a visual inspection – excellent, good, fair, poor). The next time your service technician is dispatched on a service call make sure they take service stickers and the fleet sheet with them. After they complete service on the copier they can identify printers throughout the office, complete the “fleet” sheet and add the service sticker to each printing device. While this process does add to the service call time, thus increasing your immediate service cost, the long-term benefit provided by printer supply sales, fleet optimization and the protection of your copier base will more than offset this cost. Marking your territory is also a process that your sales team should be very active in. In addition to their daily cold calling schedules, reps should be actively visiting their current customers to mark their territory. So now that we’ve got the service and sales team actively marking our territory, the next question is how (and why) does the customer buy in to this concept? There are multiple ways a dealership can approach it. 1. The dealer can offer to provide complimentary service for (90) days, provided the customer agrees to purchase supplies from the dealer. This 90-day window can be treated as an assessment period and provides the dealer with a solid snapshot of the customer’s print habits, identifies trouble devices that need to be replaced and helps establish a current cost-per-page for each device. This information can then be utilized to build a more complete managed print services proposal, while capturing new supply revenue during the process. To optimize margins, and to set the customer’s expectation level, the dealer should introduce OEM-compatible imaging supplies into the fleet during this period. 2. After the 90-day assessment period the dealer and customer can: a. Agree to a traditional managed print services agreement that offers a static cost-per-page that includes service, supplies and fleet optimization. b. Agree to a time & materials contract, at a negotiated rate, as long as the customer continues to buy supplies from the dealer. c. Determine a managed print services agreement is not in the best interest of one, or both, parties and dissolve the arraignment. continued on 19

Through this process your customer will realize benefits such as enabling management to gain visibility into the print environment (including fleet size, device utilization, end user burden, and cost), realize immediate savings through the use of OEM-compatible imaging supplies, and the ability to reduce end user burden by outsourcing all printing related issues to a single supplier. At this point I believe a few readers may be discouraged at the thought of giving away free service, or at providing service for printers/MFP’s that they’re not authorized to service. To help alleviate these concerns dealers may add a small inventory of low-cost, refurbished printers that can be deployed to a customer location in the event of a printer failure (something that cannot be easily resolved on a service call). Another option is to use a third-party service organization that will bill the dealership a time & material charge each time they are dispatched. These organizations are certified on a wide variety of printer models, can eliminate the need to stock parts or obtain service certifications, and only bill the dealer when dispatched (no retainer required). If you look at the big picture the greater risk is losing your customer’s printer fleet to a VAR, competing dealership or manufacturer direct branch, which will mean the loss of your copier placements in the long run. By marking your territory you’re able to successfully begin the MPS engagement

process with your customer, add a new source of revenue to your bottom-line (through OEM-compatible cartridges) and discourage the competition from soliciting your customer’s fleet (your service sticker can act as an “engagement ring” – back off mister!). Furthermore, you now have the option to upgrade printers to an MFP, since the company that controls the print fleet controls the potential upgrade process. Sometimes all the user is needs is a standalone printer; however, after your sales rep evaluates the needs of each individual workstation they may determine the upgrade path should include scanning, faxing and/or copying. Again, this is a simple concept designed to ease dealers into a managed print services model. We strongly encourage dealers to take advantage of the training courses offered by the Business Technology Association (BTA), as well as other independent consultants, to gain deeper insight into building an all-encompassing MPS program. u

WIDE FORMAT OPPORTUNITY? By Andy Slawetsky

R

ecently, I had the pleasure of visiting a Konica Minolta branch here in Rochester, New York to check out their cus-tomer day. What was once a small operation has seen expan-sion over the last few years, growing Konica Minolta’s business from Buffalo to Binghamton and everywhere in between. In fact, they’ve already outgrown the office they’ve moved into fairly recently and will be upgrading to a better location. They’re also apparently hiring if you’re looking for a new opportunity.

these products are now faced with finding another supplier. This brings me to my question. Are you selling wide format? If not, you should and here’s why. Those accounts that Xerox has done such an amazing job of shutting you out of all these years because of their ability to provide a complete portfolio are now vulnerable. Xerox wide format customers are going to have to look for other options and the incumbent won’t be competing against you.

Indeed, they’ve apparently doubled their MIF in the last couple of years – an admirable feat considering they’re selling in Xerox’s back yard. Chris Balash, Account Executive

Let’s take things a step farther. Now that you’re able to get your foot in the door to discuss wide format, you can go after the rest of the customer’s copiers, printers and MFPs. Is it really this easy? Apparently the answer is YES. When I was at the Konica Branch, a Xerox wide format customer came in for a product demonstration of the KIP product (see photo of Mark Bates giving the demo).

It’s always nice to get a tour of a dealer or branch and to see how they set their show room, what the offices look like and how they pitch a customer. While I was there I was lucky enough to see a couple of very professional product demonstra-tions given to customers. One was on the bizhub PRO 8000, the other was on a KIP wide format device.

One thing that became very apparent during my visit was the opportunity unfolding in the wide format arena. I’m not suggesting that customers are chomping at the bit for this technology. However, this niche market just lost arguably the largest and most recognized supplier of hardware with Xerox’s sudden exit. A great number of customers that already use

Here’s a customer with no Konica Minolta products, who is not currently in the market for a wide format product but knows he needs to plan ahead so he’s looking at what is out there. He’s in the demo room seeing not only this quality wide format printer, but also several office devices, A4 MFPs and that massive bizhub PRO 8000. They got him in the door because Xerox pushed him away and suddenly this entire account is vulnerable. This guy had never been in a Konica Minolta demo room before and now he saw that they offer wide format and everything from desktop printers to color digital presses.

You don’t have to make wide format a major focus at your dealership and there are several brands that would love to bring on new dealers if you don’t have access from your own vendor. And, there are now many Xerox reps out there that are well trained experts at wide format and I bet they’re looking for jobs. They also know where the wide format accounts are! By dropping wide format, Xerox has opened the door for you. Don’t blow such a great opportunity. Gifts like this don’t come around too often. u

n a world where the old is thrown out to make room for the new, GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation breaks the mold by keeping their customers for a lifetime. As the largest privately owned and independent US national commercial equipment finance company, they are dedicated to helping their manufacturers, vendors, and dealers be more successful. More than a provider of asset financing, GreatAmerica has become a true partner to the office equipment industry. As they near their 20 year anniversary, over 335 employees provide innovative solutions through financing and business services in all fifty states and some U.S. Territories. GreatAmerica is deeply committed to successfully serving the office equipment industry. You find its staff members providing educational presentations at various industry events and contributing many articles to the industry publications.

“GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation is dedicated to being a leader in helping our customers be more successful. We have committed resources specifically to help our industry partners with the delivery and execution of Managed Print Services (MPS),” said Jennie Fisher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Office Equipment Group at GreatAmerica. “At our core, GreatAmerica is the leading provider of financing and contract administration for providers of office equipment and Managed Print Services. We offer customized program agreements to meet the needs of each reseller’s MPS program. We have designed lease and rental contracts and documents that fit your specific needs including accommodating legacy fleets and differentiating between financed and customerowned devices.” Once an MPS contract is established, GreatAmerica provides a variety of invoice configurations to meet both end user and dealer needs such as departmental breakouts, rolled up assets, and other features. They also have very simple and concise documentation to aid in the continuing changes within a contract such as adding or swapping equipment. GreatAmerica also has a specialized Billing Solutions Group dedicated to

bundled billing and MPS contract execution. The GreatAmerica billing system integrates with the major ERP systems allowing for easy movement of meter reads via auto-upload and passthrough payments. They can also auto post the pass-through billing back into the reseller’s system. Their Jennie Fisher industry leading website, InfoSr. VP & GM Zone.com™, provides resellers 24/7 Office Equipment access to their contract information, Group accounts receivable and additional tools. This is a password protected portal with access controlled by the reseller. Once an MPS contract books, customers can utilize meter uploads via this website. The GreatAmerica help desk and dedicated support teams constantly provide a high level of customer and technical assistance, ongoing training, sales support and customized marketing materials. “In addition to our financial solutions, GreatAmerica has also brought value-added tools to our customers to enable them to help grow their business,” said Fisher. “By making investments in these tools and solutions, they are able to offer mission-critical infrastructure at a reduced cost with or without upfront investment from the office equipment dealer.” GreatAmerica has extended their commitment to be a true partner with their dealer-clients. By continually listening to the needs of the dealer, GreatAmerica continues to create and share systems and programs that will nurture their goal of creating customers for life. The Customers for Life™ approach to leasing defines the customer as the office equipment dealer or reseller, not the end user. This approach is distinctly different from other leasing companies and guides the core business practices of providing the highest levels of customer care to help their dealers be more successful. Current GreatAmerica MPS and business related offerings include the following: FleetView® provides dealers with remote monitoring software without having to make a capital investment in their own system or support. FleetView interfaces with both FMAudit and PrintFleet operating platforms. GreatAmerica offers FleetView as a simple fee structure that is not tied to leasing or other business commitments. InTune® is a survey tool to gauge customer satisfaction. Each year GreatAmerica surveys their resellers and dealers to determine their performance. GreatAmerica saw such a benefit to their organization from customer feedback that they decided to

use a third-party market research company to offer a survey tool to the dealers. GreatAmerica subsidized the cost to develop the survey. As a result the reseller has no start up costs and only pays a monthly fee that is equal to approximately 10% of what they would pay to administer the survey on their own. Administered on a monthly basis, InTune provides monthly feedback on sales of new equipment placements and service satisfaction. PathSharesSM HR Services provides additional hiring and training solutions for resellers. These human resources training webinars offer the reseller community assessment tools and hiring best practices. GreatAmerica completed and rolled out to the MPS community, via training sessions, the MPS Sales Success Profile. It is supported by a study conducted by Sally Brause, Director, Human Resources Consulting, and includes assessment tools, interviews, and field data work with MPS sales personnel and managers. The study informs the key attributes necessary for MPS sales compared to traditional transactional focused sales and the key coaching necessary for successful management. The MPS Navigator business planning session takes the reseller’s executive team through the process to plan, imple-

Supplies Wise: Dealers Who Focus on Supplies Rather Than Hardware By Scott Cullen

H

ardware margins have sunk like a stone and that’s been a bane to the existence of many office technology dealers. Yet there are some dealers who have been impervious to declining hardware margins. That’s because they don’t sell hardware, or they don’t rely exclusively on hardware to pay the bills. Instead they focus mainly on supplies, especially consumables, or have a diverse product offering. We spoke with two dealers, one a former office equipment dealer who offers an MPS-like program that revolves around printer supplies and service, and a dealer who sells a mix of 75 percent supplies and service and 25 percent hardware who is enjoying success in the MPS arena. Source Office Products in Golden, Colorado focuses primarily on their traditional business of office supplies while simultaneously winning more than their fair share of managed print services business too. This was an area they were well positioned to grow in since they already had a service department in place for repairing customer’s laser printers.

“We looked at the amount of revenue tied to laser supplies, ink supplies, paper, and some of the other things we were doing and thought, ‘Would we want that portion of our business to evaporate by not being involved in this area?’ and the answer was a resounding ‘No!’ We felt this was something we needed to do it in order to survive.” How does Source compete against office technology dealers that provide customers with a wider range of equipment and printing solutions, including MPS? Givens cites SYNNEX and their managed print services program, PRINTsolv, a program designed to deliver managed print services to the IT channel, as one of the differentiators. Source is also an HP OPS (Office Printing Solutions) Elite partner, which provides them with discounts on HP hardware and HP OEM supplies along with numerous other programs. It also helps immeasurably in building MPS credibility. So far Givens is thrilled with the relationship, something one doesn’t often hear from traditional office technology dealers when discussing HP.

“That isn’t typical for most office supply companies,” acknowledges “The partnering HP is willing to do is extraordiJohn Givens John Givens, founder and chairman nary,” says Givens. “Ninety-nine percent of all our Source Office Products of Source Office Products. “We were MPS contracts are HP OEM and we have found already in the toner, printer, and servmarketing a true HP-branded MPS solution has ice business when HP was looking for proven to be a ‘best of breed’ practice.” dealers who could provide the appropriate level of support, service, and sales necessary to run a managed print services He isn’t shy about spreading the word to other office products program four years ago.” dealers, which might be bad news for traditional office technolBut what about an office supply dealership without a service department? “It’s a little more difficult for an office supply company who doesn’t have a service organization, but that’s a hurdle all of us can figure out,” maintains Givens who reports his MPS business is good and getting better all the time. Source generates 120-million pages under contract annually and sells more than $8 million in total HP hardware, supplies, service, and MPS contracts. Source’s hardware manufacturers include HP for his customer’s 55-ppm and under equipment needs and Canon, who he hooked up with last year, for customers that require a device that outputs at more than 55-ppm. The reason Givens embraced MPS was the realization that a large portion of his revenues were tied to what he considers printer supplies—laser toner cartridges, ink cartridges, and paper.

ogy dealers.

“My mission is to make sure that as many office products dealers as are out there know about the program,” he says. “There aren’t a lot of them, but particularly those that are north of $20 million in revenue because they have the toner base and the financial resources to partner with HP.” Despite the competition for MPS business, Givens feels that his product mix, supplies, service, and hardware gives him the edge. “Everyone relies on supplies and service, and if left to only selling equipment we’d all be out of business,” he says. He compares what he offers to a supermarket that offers everything under one roof—butcher, bakery, produce, etc. He considers MPS to be his dealership’s lead category and one of five sub-categories that a customer has to worry about ordering. The others, according to Givens, are office supplies, coffee service, furniture, and commercial print. continued on 32

Supplies Wise: Dealers Who Focus on Supplies

“We feel we are in the best position to provide the benefits of what a supermarket would provide for a business partner much more so than the copier or printer guys in terms of their value proposition to the customer,” says Givens. “That may be a bold statement but we’re finding the concept is really boding well in our marketplace with businesses that have minimized their support staff. They’re not looking at how they can buy the product cheaper, but how can they improve business processes to eliminate people touching things. MPS is part of that solution and we’d like to dovetail that into other categories that we feel better position us as an organization to support our clients locally.” Source’s business model revolves around relationship managers (his term for sales people) who work with subject matter experts who have knowledge of hardware, software, and of course, MPS. Because his relationship managers are more embedded in an account than the average hardware-centric sales rep that often moves onto the next customer after they’ve sold them the equipment, Givens believes this model gives Source the edge. “In most cases you can ask the average midsize account who their copier rep is, they probably wouldn’t know unless they were up for an upgrade in the next 18 months,” says Givens.

J

im Vitiello, president of Datasource ink in Chicago, took everything he learned as a copier dealer and reinvented himself seven years ago as a provider of desktop printer supplies and service. He made that transition after abruptly leaving the copier business and trying to figure out what to do next. Thanks in part to a long-time relationship with Jim Cerkleski, CEO of Clover Technologies Group, Vitiello was soon back in business selling compatible toners and providing service and support for HP printers. He hasn’t looked back since. “All my instincts from the copier business came back to me to get into managing printer fleets,” notes Vitiello.

Vitiello likes working with Clover Technologies, especially since they don’t come looking for orders at the end of the month or ask him to hit unrealistic quotas. This allows him to focus on his core skills of sales, service, and support. Servicing customer’s printers and providing them with toner is quite the contrast compared to when Vitiello was earning his living as a copier dealer. “After 10 years as a copier dealer I had 5,000 copiers under service contract,” reports Vitiello. “In the first four years of Datasource ink, I had 5,000 printers in my customer base and I didn’t sell one of them.” It’s not like Vitiello had a one-of-a-kind idea; he has a fair amount of competition in his market doing things the way he’s doing it and some of those are extremely successful because they’ve been doing it for a long time. Don’t get the wrong idea though, Vitiello isn’t just selling supplies. “If I’m just selling toner I’m not doing my job,” he says. “I provide a program where if you buy the toner, all parts and labor are included. When I do that my average gross margin is probably 75 percent.” He tries to compete against the OEMs on HP toner and with that 75 percent margin he’s enjoying, he’s still able to pass on savings of 20 percent to his customers. He recently spoke with a prospect who was quoted $139 for 20 HP cartridges that Vitiello buys for $135. In that scenario, it’s impossible for him to compete on price.

Jim Vitiello DataSource Ink

It’s a given that the copier business is a relationship-based one and Vitiello has forged many over the years while running his dealership, so it’s no surprise that many of his current customers are the same ones he had as when he was a copier dealer. Datasource ink’s business revolves around the E-Z Print Management Program, an all-inclusive program that includes supplies, parts, and on-site service. The value proposition that Datasource ink sells to customers is that this program can reduce total cost of ownership and improve document workflow. The program offers flexible pricing, an effective way to control output costs, and product and service guarantees that Vitiello says provide clients with peace of mind. And there are no contracts to sign, which translates into an atmosphere of trust.

“If they just want to buy toner cartridges they should buy them from whoever they want to buy them from,” he says. “My program’s a little more involved.”

His program is evolving and is a much more comprehensive program than it used to be. What started with supplies, parts, and labor now includes a key component of HP printers, the maintenance kit. “When I first started the program I didn’t include maintenance kits because they were too costly,” recalls Vitiello. “But the cost has come down dramatically because of all the competition and I can include those now.” Datasource ink’s customer base includes Fortune 500 companies as well as verticals such as law firms, banking, and manufacturing companies—many of the same verticals that Vitiello used to pursue as a copier dealer. He says it wasn’t difficult making the transition from hardware to supplies and Vitiello is fully aware of the pressures his copier dealer friends are under. continued on 34

Supplies Wise: Dealers Who Focus on Supplies

“All my buddies are still selling hardware and trying to get into MPS, but at the end of the day they’re still trying to meet quotas,” states Vitiello. “When I got into this it was an absolute relief not to sell hardware. Every customer I visit is a prospect today.”

“It’s not often I run into guys who do programs like mine,” notes Vitiello who adds the Big Boxes are now hiring MPS specialists. “They’re losing so much revenue to toner companies like mine and they’ve had to hire some guys to go in there and stop the bleeding.”

On the service and support side he doesn’t need as many technicians to service his huge printer population as when he was servicing copiers. For example, when he was a copier dealer he had 30 technicians servicing 5,000 copiers. Today he has four technicians handling the same size printer population. Those technicians are all contracted employees.

It’s still early but he feels he still has an advantage.

“The response and service I give to my customers is much better when you have a contracted technician because they get paid when they touch the machine,” explains Vitiello. “If I call my lead guy who does 70 percent of my work, and he can’t get there in four hours, I go to the next guy on my list. They’re all hungry for that call, so it frees me up to do what I do best— sell.” It certainly helps that service in the printer world is different than service in the copier world. If Vitiello gets one or two service calls a day, that’s a lot. “Ninety percent of our customers are HP and Lexmark and really don’t have a lot of service needs,” he reveals. Whatever Vitiello is doing he’s doing it right, with his business up 40 percent over last year. He’s added two new sales reps and has recently landed some really big customers. However, his biggest competition is now the Big Box Stores— Staples, Office Depot, and Office Max.

“I can’t compete with the Big Boxes in the scope of what they can do, but they’re not good at understanding what I do,” he says. “Their salesman have to focus on 5,000 SKUS and can’t focus on what I do. Plus they outsource service and parts. They may sound good, but they don’t give anything away.” As far as MPS, he’s never been a big fan even though one might argue that’s the type of program he’s offering. “When I think of MPS coming from the copier world, I think of it as a cost per page under contract,” says Vitiello. “One of the things I tell people is I won’t do cost per page because I don’t want to be on a race to the bottom to see how low I can go. Recently I saw a MPS/CPC program for a fleet of HP printers where the dealer went in at .005 for the whole breadth of HP printers. For many of them it’s cost prohibitive to do .005, so I don’t want to get caught up in that race.” Vitiello has big plans for 2011. He’s looking to penetrate more vertical markets while continuing to focus most of his efforts on the Chicago market even though there are opportunities outside of the area too. He’d also like to add a few more sales people and grow his service department as well as add a few more related products. “We go where the cartridges are whether it’s a printer, fax or POS machine, but there’s a few ancillary products out there that I can support through a cartridge-based program and grow the business that way,” says Vitiello. u

Talent Development - Coaching Your People to Success By David Ramos

M

y colleague, Ed Carroll, gave a great presentation during a recent Strategy Development client symposium in Las Vegas. During the presentation he touched on the three P’s: • • •

People Productivity Process

His point was succinct and poignant. Develop your people, drive efficiencies and productivity and improve your process because things don’t happen by accident. Bottom line, focus on proper employee development and training so that when you decide to take on that new venture or initiative of Managed IT Services, Production Print, or Managed Print Services your likelihood of success is higher. During this economic downturn, many managers across all business lines, like operations, sales, service, finance, etc. have been under pressure to achieve more, but with fewer resources. And many will continue to pursue this goal, even when our industry or organizations start to grow again. So how can you make this happen? One way is by helping your people to be more effective and productive in their existing roles, and at the same time empowering them to take on new challenges and responsibilities. And coaching is an excellent tool for achieving this, alongside other elements of a comprehensive talent management strategy. In particular, coaching can help you: • Reveal people’s capacity to develop new skills and take on increased responsibility. • Develop their existing skills and talent through supported experimentation – when you encourage people to try new ways to do essential tasks and processes. • Identify where unhelpful attitudes are preventing them from succeeding in their roles, so that you can help them deal with this. • Develop your people by helping them solve problems that are blocking their progress. • Improve operational efficiency by identifying fundamental problems with business processes. • Highlight succession planning issues, and provide people with a more realistic understanding of their career expectations. The guidelines below can help you direct your coachingfocused conversations for best results.

Managing a Coaching Conversation The GROW model is a valuable framework for managing a coaching conversation. Follow these four steps to adapt GROW specifically for talent development.

Explore People’s GOALS

Coaching is ideal for exploring people’s professional, economic, and personal ambitions. By better understanding how they want to commit to their roles and careers, you can more easily assess how to shape the way that they work to meet those desires. For example, a coaching conversation might identify untapped motivation, a skill gap, or a need for a different work experience. In a similar way, by exploring people’s formal work goals, you can help them bring clarity to what they should be doing and the skills they need to be developing, so that they know what they should be focusing on, and where they should and shouldn’t be using their time.

Assess the Current REALITY

You can use coaching conversations to discuss the good and bad aspects of people’s work life, and this is a great way of uncovering how they perceive their roles and relationships within the organization. Are they sufficiently challenged in what they do? Perhaps they find their job stressful? Or maybe they’re experiencing conflict with their co-workers? By helping people understand their current situation, you can help them fulfill their potential in a way that benefits the organization. This helps you build a happier team. Recognizing reality is also important where people are struggling to achieve their formal work goals. They’re unlikely to find the motivation to change their behavior if they can’t see a problem that needs to be solved.

Explore the OPTIONS for Developing People’s Capability

If people need to improve their skills or change the way that they work, then take time to explore the options available to them. For example, the outcomes of coaching conversations could include an agreement to take on new responsibilities within the current role, to look at changing roles within the organization, to engage with a potential development mentor, or to start a training program to build skills and knowledge.

Assess and Confirm People’s Motivation (WILL) to Develop

Once the people you are coaching have agreed to a path of action, coaching can help you explore whether they are sufficiently motivated to make the changes that you have agreed upon. As a coach, you can challenge them to explore what will make the plan happen. For example, they may need a break from their current role to provide sufficient time to develop new skills, or they may need to change their daily routine to allow for additional responsibilities or tasks. continued on 59 enx magazine

Are You Running Service Or Is Service Running You? - Part IV

The Value of Good Parts and Dispatch Managers 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 fourth 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. I’m often amazed when visiting dealers at the apparent misunderstanding of how their parts manager and dispatchers affect the overall function and efficiency of their service departments. Both of these individuals are absolutely critical when it comes to the customer’s perception of their businesses and a significant share of their service department’s manpower requirements. Technology such as wireless dispatch has done a great deal to improve the overall accuracy and productivity of the technician’s interface with dispatch. But even with wireless dispatch you cannot overlook the value of the dispatchers and how they influence the customer’s perception of your business.

Customer Care It goes without saying that the individuals that interface with your customers can make or break much of the relationship with your company. After the salesman is long gone, the primary contact with your business will be when the customer calls in for service or supplies. It is of the utmost importance that these individuals interfacing with these customers be trained in customer service skills and understand the significant role they play in your organization. Technicians know that much of the customer’s temperament when they arrive will have been already determined by how the dispatcher dealt with them at the time they placed their service call. Diffusing an angry customer can go a long way in assisting your technicians to put final closure on the problem the customer is having. Having all the information about the customer’s situation is also key to their ability to empathize with the customer’s situation. Each interaction should be carefully documented, not only for the benefit of the technician, but also for the benefit of all involved. Knowing why the customer called, their state of urgency, the current call load, and who can best solve their problem can all be information gathered and correlated by dispatch. It becomes obvious then that any time and training investments made in your dispatchers, making sure that they know how to handle your customers, how your automation software works, and if appropriate, how to effectively keep your technician’s priorities in line with the customers, is money well spent. A good dispatcher can take advantage of the fact that they know where the technicians are and where they are needed and use that to reduce wait time by your customers. GPS and proper ter-

ritory assignments are additional tools to improve this effectiveness. They can also reduce the amount of wasted tech time by ensuring the technicians are where they are supposed to be. Depending on your basic territory structure, having them familiar with your geography can be helpful in their decisions about which tech can get there the quickest from their current location. I also believe it is to everyone’s advantage to rotate technicians into dispatch, so they can understand what goes on in dispatch and what dispatchers have to manage, as well as putting dispatchers in the field with technicians for the same reason. Both can learn a lot from each other and the experience will make them better at their jobs.

Parts Logistics Good parts and inventory control managers are in my opinion far more valuable than most give them credit for. For the average dealer in our customer base this person can cost the dealers as much as 20+% of their total technician manpower requirements. Why? Because statistics show that more than 34% of the time the service call will require parts. Statistics also show the dealers will have an average of 20+% of the total calls generated by customer result in an additional call because the technician doesn’t have the necessary parts to fix the machine on the first visit. Think about this for a moment; your parts person has control of over 30% of your technical manpower if they completely miss the boat on restocking your technicians. Is it realistic to expect a 0% percent hold for part rate (HP%)? Impossible! But if you could lower your hold for part rate to 8% which is about as low as I’ve seen it realistically maintained, this represents a 12+% reduction in over all calls. So if your company does 1000 calls per month, 120 of those calls would simply go away, and either allow you to reduce your staff or provide the improved response time equal to one and a half additional techs. When your parts person does not properly equip your technicians for their jobs, you are literally throwing your most expensive resource (manpower) at a parts logistics problem, not to mention the thousands of dollars in overnight parts shipping costs normally associated poor parts management as well. Does this require higher inventories? I don’t believe so. My experience is that a good parts manager is constantly balancing the primary need of getting the technicians the right parts at the right time, with the need to constantly be adjusting the on hand inventory to its minimum. So not only can this individual cost you unnecessary manpower but they can also cost you huge dollars in obsolete and excess inventory if not properly managed. It seems almost illogical that dealers put someone in charge of hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory, as well making them responsible for almost one quarter of your required technical staff’s time, but yet more often than not, this person has no continued on 43

formal education in inventory control or distribution. In some cases the parts manager is a former warehouse employee or ex-field tech. Although some of the individuals may be quite good, simply look at the amount of inventory (or obsolete inventory) and the percentage of no parts calls and you can quickly determine if hiring a more qualified manager is justifiable. You can also address this issue with technology—BEI’s Effective Workload Distribution software can not only assign an appropriate workload for your technicians, but also generate an accurate required car stock, so the parts manager only has to make the appropriate adjustments to each technician’s car stock. This will free his time up to ensuring he’s managing your inbound shipping costs through better forecasting, and maximizing your warranty opportunities. I think most dealers wrestle with parts inventories and the effectiveness of the technicians in this regard, but you must look at the source. Proper selection of a good parts manager and the support personnel that help that person can be worth far more than you will likely have to pay

Usually only a small percentage of your no parts calls will be caused by the vendor being out of parts. In my travels, I’ve been able to document that better than 80% of the average dealers’ no part calls are for parts that the technician normally had in his car inventory. What is happening is that they are not restocked often or fast enough, therefore they’ve used their on-hand stock and require additional items. The response to this is to increase the quantity of those items, or simply shortening your restock time will accomplish the same task and is generally much cheaper. There will always be unusual parts that rarely fail or that the vendor backorders on. But these are the exception, not the rule. A qualified parts manager will understand that better forecasting means lower shipping expenses, consistently lower inventory amounts, and fewer no part calls. If you currently have a parts manager who’s doing a good job and keeping your service organization running at optimum levels, commend them on a job well done. If your parts person is not achieving the inventory

A Visit with MSE Obsessed with Quality

T

o gain inside perspective of aftermarket industry, ENX spoke with MSE’s Luke Goldberg, Senior Vice President, and Gil Wazana, Vice President of Sales–Americas. They spoke candidly about their view of the state of the compatibles industry, MSE’s business philosophy, newest innovations, color and MPS products. Tell me about your view on the current market challenges and opportunities for compatible sellers.

Gil Wazana VP of Sales

Luke Goldberg: The aftermarket imaging supplies business is very resilient. We have been able to overcome many obstacles to provide ever increasing offerings of products. We seem to be managing the external problems of chips, raw material, and acquisition of empties, new equipment, OEM intellectual properties, and legal restraints. We have overcome the technical issues for 25 years and we will continue to overcome them. However, many compatible manufacturers are still unable to appropriately manage customer expectations. We need to understand our biggest challenges come from our own industry. We really need to provide a consistent, quality alternative. If you are unable to do it, you should go to your customers and say ‘I can give you a recycled product or a new compatible. The product is probably not going to be as good as the OEM.’ Had the industry done that in the past, the industry probably would not be in the situation we are in today. The fact is many companies do not have faith in the quality of their own product. So they price it at 50% less than the OEM, when an appropriate price for a quality compatible is 25 - 30% less. The current industry pricing practices, if they continue unabated, will lead to the undoing of the industry. Too often product is priced as a base of cost up; rather than OEM retail price down. These problems are internal. One company cannot accomplish this repositioning by itself. We need a collective representation from the majority of remanufactures to improve their quality and price their products appropriately. How has the economic down turn affected the supplies aftermarket? Gil Wazana: A major shift in OEM equipment launches took place between 2008 and 2011 as

a result of the global recession. The OEMs stopped developing new technology and releasing new printers. In previous years, they were releasing new chip technologies, faster printers, higher yields, 15+ new models per year. Each of these actions delayed the ability for the aftermarket compatible industry to quickly and effectively keep up with providing quality aftermarket products. Recently, many assemblers were able to go to the toner manufacturers and ask for toner that would work in many of the popular printers that had been on the open market for a couple of Luke Goldberg years. They would test new products Sr. VP until they worked good enough to offer a remanufactured product to the compatibles market at a very low price. Luke: In 2011 there is a noticeable increase in the amount of new hardware with new technology being offered by the OEMs. Faster speeds, new chips, advanced color formulas are being introduced. These new products play into the strength of MSE. Our history of innovation, creative engineering, state of the art testing facilities and first to market manufacturing ability allows MSE to quickly and effectively custom engineer compatible products for newly released equipment. How do these events fit in with the MSE business philosophy? Gil: MSE began as a reseller of compatible toner cartridges in 1994. From the very beginning we struggled to find a reliable product to sell to our own retail customers. We eventually transitioned into remanufacturing laser toner cartridges due to the inability to find consistent compatible supplies that met our demand for consistent quality and yield. This recognition of the lack of quality in the industry drove us into the world of manufacturing with a vision to successfully compete with the best OEMs. Quality has always been at the foundation of MSE even before we had the resources to invest in the technology, innovation and the patented processes we have today. Explain MSE’s trademarked phrase Intelligent Re-engineering™. Gil: By the late 1990s we stopped seeing ourselves as a cartridge remanufacturer. The foundation of everything we do is continued on 45

based on quality, innovation, and technology. Our focus on engineering became the driving force to deliver consistent quality. We decided that hiring engineers to provide innovative technology was more important than increasing our sales staff. Intelligent Reengineering™ became our trademarked phrase that describes our quest for providing the markets truest alternative to OEM products. Our engineers understand the OEM process: the good and the bad. Our goal is to overcome OEM impediments and in some cases to even improve on the OEM process. It officially began in 1999 with the development of the first MSE patent. Eleven years and 16 patents later, MSE continues to invest in development and continuous improvement of our products. How are the compatible color resellers dealing with product quality? Luke: Coming from the raw material, manufacturing and distribution side of the industry, I have seen firsthand the major issues caused by the raw material side of color. Those challenges are exacerbated by the fact many manufacturers do not have the necessary manufacturing equipment, technical understanding or investment capital that is required to produce a consistent quality color product. Today one of the things that makes it risky for the dealer looking to buy compatible color products is that everybody says they are the leader in color. So how does the dealer know what is reality and what is subterfuge? How do you differentiate between those who say they sell a high quality non-OEM alternative and those that actually deliver? Collectively the aftermarket has not done an adequate job of convincing the consumer that there is a good alternative to the OEM color product. Dealers are scared of getting their end users to try a product that has a history of being inferior. Eventually we will lose our opportunity to successfully sell compatible color if we continue to offer a subpar product to the same end users who have tried and been disappointed with inferior color products in the past. How is MSE responding to the color needs of the market? Luke: Patents, innovations, technology, engineering and unyielding commitment to quality directly relate to MSE’s commitment to producing the first true color alternative to OEM consumables. MSE has earned a real leadership position in the color market. Today over 40% of our revenue comes from our aftermarket color supplies. This is in comparison to worldwide aftermarket color sales of less than 10%. We have been successful in convincing our dealers to use MSE color because it has proven itself to be able to produce superior consistency over an extended period of time. How does Absolute Color Technologies™

differ from other color products? Luke: From a marketing standpoint we established the MSE color sub-brand Absolute Color Technologies™ to establish a differentiation of quality and recognition at the dealer and end user level. Every MSE branded color cartridge has a sticker on it listing specific technologies and patents that are deployed in the manufacturing of this product. Aftermarket color was infamous for poor color consistency. There have been many historical causes of this including color toner adhering to the primary charge roller. This causes dirty prints, streaking print and unwanted background. Every dealer has seen this problem. As part of our Intelligent Reengineering™, we developed and applied for patents on our secondary cleaning system. This additional component is added to the cartridge to keep the PCR completely clean of toner additive buildup. It virtually eliminates the issues of streaking, back grounding and overall dirty print quality. This hallmark revolutionary technology eliminates many historical problems associated with aftermarket color. The Absolute Color Technologies™ brand of products is a true color alternative to the OEM. When it comes to laser color toner cartridges, MSE is in a Category of One for aftermarket color. How is MSE fulfilling the needs of MPS dealers? Gil: A traditional laser printer dealer has a different understanding and usage of compatible supplies than does the BTA channel dealer. The MPS movement has required copier dealers to take on the servicing of printers. Most copier dealers do not question the quality of their supplies. In the past they made good money selling new OEM hardware and OEM supplies. Quality was never an issue. That world no longer exists. When attending World Expo or ITEX, their discussions with manufacturers of compatible products deal with pricing and shipping. There is a preconceived notion that all aftermarket supplies must be at the same quality as the OEM. This creates a ‘false start period’. Explain the concept of the false start period. Gil: Most copier dealers established their MPS program infrastructure with little thought about the quality of the supplies they will be using. They are price focused when choosing a manufacturer and distributor of their supplies. They do not take the time to visit the manufacturing plant of the maker of the supplies.

alone are the determining factors in their buying decision. For the first few months of using low priced compatibles, things seem to be OK. An inferior product will work for a while before that 10% failure rate begins to negatively affect serviceability and profitability. After 9 to18 months of use you have unsatisfied customers, increasing service calls, disgruntled field techs and a discouraged sales staff. End users are unhappy and refuse to renew their MPS agreements. The false start period requires the copier dealers to re-examine their MPS program. They know they must remain in the MPS market. They just have to find another way to make it work. Many find they are committed to long term agreement pricing that is dependent on the use of very low priced and equally low quality compatibles. Copier dealers are coming to MSE and saying ‘We need to use your products in our MPS programs. But we are already stuck with pre-established unrealistically low prices to our end users. What do we do?’ At this point, they have educated themselves to the need for proven quality the hard way that the foundation of a successful MPS program is the exclusive use of quality compatibles. After the false start period, MPS dealers diligently research the credentials of compatible manufacturers and sellers. What problems and benefits are the high yield and jumbo products creating? Gil: MSE has established a high yield cartridge with the MPS Engineered sub-brand. This product has been specifically engineered for use in equipment being covered under MPS agreements. MSE also provides MPS engineered marketing literature that is written in language easy for the end user to understand. The full color marketing piece explains what makes the MSE products superior. These include commercial benefits, environmental, technical benefits as well as cost savings. Users need to be cautious and aware of companies that advertise high yield products. There is more to jumbos than just stuffing more toner into a cartridge. Users need to measure the engineering and innovations ability of companies that offer jumbo cartridges. You are asking the cartridge to double its life cycle. Just marketing extended yield does not increase the ability of a cartridge to last twice as long. Over the years I have learned there is not just black and white, there are a lot of grays. If I told you every one of my products is perfect and equal to the OEM, it probably is not true.

Explain MSE’s commitment to reinvestment and educating their dealers and users. Luke and Gil: MSE continues to educate and bring a true awareness regarding the critical importance of quality to the dealer community, especially the copier dealers. Printer dealers already had years of learning the hard way to choose quality over lowest priced. The industry cannot afford for the copier dealers to have such bad experiences when using compatibles that they revert back to using OEM products. Our goal is to increase the awareness of how to evaluate the overall value, not just the price, of different compatible products and their manufacturers. What suggestions do you have for the BTA channel MPS buyer and user? Gil: A large part of the MSE marketing approach is through consultative sales and brand name recognition. MSE never sells directly to the end user. We understand that our products must be sold by a 3rd party. We are committed to support our dealers. We translate our very technical achievements to sales and marketing support that end users can understand. After the sale we continue to advise and help our customers succeed. MSE has a vast array of dealer marketing support including those specifically designed for the dealer community and other material for the end user. What benefits does the MSE branded products provide? Gil: MSE is the only major wholesale manufacturer that prints their name on the box. It is not just the dealer’s reputation who sells the product that is at stake. The MSE brand was launched in 1998. We were the first in the business to use color packaging. Our checks and balances insure we never sacrifice any element of the product. Using our name on our box allows our dealers to use our credentials, certifications, patents, marketing tools, manufacturing plant visitation, webpage, corporate videos and reputation as part of their selling process. Luke: Dealers who are researching compatible manufacturers should consider the importance and benefits of brand recognition. Without a specific manufacturer’s continued on 55

When viewing our price list, MPS dealers quickly realize we are not the lowest priced option. But we continue to prove that MSE offers the greatest overall value. MSE partners with the MPS dealer to increase their customer retention. The future is a reflection of what we have achieved in the past. MSE believes in the power of our market which ensures that consumers have a viable choice. We are bullish on the future of our industry if we continue to be vigilant about quality.u By Ronelle Ingram

In addition to the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system and CXDI-501 DR systems, medical professionals can view the Company’s complete DR medical imaging solutions at the Canon booth (#702). “In the current medical market, the main objective when purchasing digital radiography equipment is to offer low-dose radiation without sacrificing image quality,” said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. “The addition of the CXDI-80C Wireless and CXDI-501 DR systems to our DR portfolio demonstrates Canon’s commitment to meeting the demands of the medical industry by developing products to facilitate high-quality health care performance.” Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) System1 As Canon’s first compact wireless DR system, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system builds on the success of Canon’s renowned CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, while achieving reductions in size and weight. With great operability and freedom in diagnostic exams, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system features a lightweight body design with an imaging area of 11 x 14-inch size, which is equivalent to a conventional 10 x 12-inch imaging cassette. The CXDI-80C Wireless DR system weighs 5.5 pounds and incorporates a 6.1-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, producing high-quality images with low X-ray exposure. The CXDI-80C Wireless DR System also produces up to 140 images on a fully charged battery, making it easy to obtain the optimal image for proper diagnosis. Providing excellent portability, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system can also fit into an incubator tray or isolette, which is ideal for orthopedics practice or Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). When used together with the CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system fully supports the imaging of various body regions, including the head and chest area, abdomen and extremities. Canon CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Systems2 With its new glass substrate, impressive image quality and portability, the CXDI-501 series provides medical practitioners with the means to deliver efficient diagnosis and quality patient care. Thanks to the new, detachable cable and compatible cassette, the Canon CXDI501C and CXDI-501G DR systems are exceptionally versatile, satisfying both portability and easy installation for most existing Bucky trays. The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems feature 14 x 17-inch imaging area and each weighs less than 7 pounds. Boasting exceptional lightconversion efficiency, the CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems also incorporate a high-quality, 9.5-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and offer a Cesium Iodide (CsI) or Gadolinium Oxysulfide scintillator, respectively. For high-quality performance, the CXDI-501 DR systems provide fast exam output, allowing medical practitioners to preview an image in three seconds after exposure. The CXDI-501 DR systems include CXDI Control Software NE, which helps optimize

Selects OKI proColor™ Series for Use with the Revolutionary EmFuse Color Braille Station ViewPlus Experience in Braille Embossing and OKI Printing Expertise Combine for Unique Product Suite, Generating Groundbreaking Output Mount Laurel, NJ (August 10, 2011) – OKI Data Americas is pleased to announce that one of its innovative OKI proColor Series printers has been selected for use in the EmFuse Color Braille Station by ViewPlus Technologies Inc. OKI’s printing know-how and ViewPlus’ knowledge of Braille embossing have married in the EmFuse system to create media that delivers both color printing and embossing together within a single document. The result is as extraordinary visually as it is conceptually, and the system’s use takes print-on-demand capabilities to a new level for both sighted and the visually-impaired individuals, alike. The EmFuse Color Braille Station – including the OKI proColor printer – handles color printing and Braille embossing with ease, even printing/embossing double-sided on up to 12 inch by 18 inch and A3 paper. The system has the ability to utilize Braille paper or standard office media including cardstock, copy paper and labels. Its high paper-handling capacity, high-definition color output, and long-lasting toner cartridges make the system ideal for any organization – educational, governmental, or otherwise – that requires production of Braille documents and materials. According to Jeff Gardner, CEO of ViewPlus Technologies, Inc., the OKI proColor printer was selected for the EmFuse system because, “It was the only printer that is capable of handling the required size range and weight of media to convey the raised Braille embossing in addition to high-impact color output.” The EmFuse system generates materials that may include both Braille and color printing, allowing sighted individuals the opportunity the ability to read what is embossed. This is especially useful for those who teach the visually-impaired. The system’s practicality is demonstrated within its capability for dual purpose printing-on-demand. Whereas organizations may wait days or weeks and pay top dollar for documents to be reproduced in Braille, this system services such needs both quickly and cost-effectively. “OKI continues to offer innovative, high quality, short-run color printing solutions through the proColor Series,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. “Our collaboration with ViewPlus on the EmFuse Color Braille Station is another example of OKI’s commitment to the delivery of

September 2011 custom printing solutions as we continue to fill voids within the marketplace.

These models are designed as low volume personal printers and do not have a maintenance count that needs to be reset or a readily accessible service mode. You can cold reset these printers or completely reinitialize the NVRAM (nonvolatile random access memory) to factory defaults. Cold resetting will reset most of the system parameters to factory defaults and reinitializing the NVRAM will reset ALL system parameters to the factory defaults. Also, there is a service mode for these printers but it is only accessible through software using PJL service mode commands. Buy the printer’s service manual if you want to learn more.

FREE TECH HELP Subject: DI-5510 Jamming Question: I’m getting intermittent jams in the exit area. Paper is about 2 inches through the turnover gate coming up. Jam code is mostly J32-04 and a few J32-02. I changed the exit assembly and it seemed to work. Ran 200 pages without any jams. Next day I was called back because of jamming in the same place. Answer: Replace or trim the mylars (4024-3079-01). Answer: Clean and use Emory cloth on the 2 one way gears and the shafts. Answer: Replace the foam roller and the two one way gears that drive it. May need the little bearing, too. Question: I see the two mylars and one of them had a bent corner. I will order two new ones. Where are the one way gears and the foam rollers? Thanks for the help. Answer: On the fuser exit and front of the fuser under the blk guide for the roller. Answer: Yes. The decurling roller is a known culprit for such jams. You can run single-sided copies all day without a hiccup, but if you don’t test it using the duplexer, you will be back out again. They get firm and develop flat spots. Question: Found the foam roller and one ways. Foam roller has flat spots. I will order it and one way gears. Thanks everyone for the help.

Subject: KM-2030 “Adding toner” Question: My machine won’t copy; it always says “adding toner” or “add toner and resume copying,” I think. I have had the developer unit out and checked the augers. They turn just fine. Also it does appear to be adding toner! If anything, the DV looks too full. I suspect a bad toner sensor, but wanted to get some opinions here first. This is only the second one I have seen in the field. Answer: Did you get the toner for CS2030 in error? It is different in the interface; the toner is the same but the cart is ever so slightly different (square gear/key versus triangle). Question: I guess I’ll have to go out and check. I didn’t notice and I’ll be surprised if they know. It did look to be dropping toner into the mix. Thanks. Answer: How many copies/pages are on the developer? It’s good for 100K, might be time to change the developer.

Question: The developer has less than 20,000 copies on it. Question: Well the toner idea sounded like a pretty good possibility, but I got back to the customer today and it is square hole to square peg. Everything appears to be turning ok, and the DV is stirring. I hadn’t noticed before, but the “machine error” light is on, no error code, but she can’t even fax out with the dog. HUH? Answer: I have seen this with a bad toner motor, stripper toner feed gears. Cheat the front cover switch. Go into service mode and run forced toner supply, sim 132. Watch to see if the motor is actually turning the augers on the toner container. And for a really off-the-wall solution, check the toner container. I’ve seen the tape break on the slide for the toner feed into the developer section. And the piece of tape will block the toner from feeding into the developer section. Question: I did get back, and cheated the front door switch, and the toner is coming out. I would have to think that it is actually way over toned by now. The only problem I can see with the toner is that the seal for the sliding door on the bottom of the cart doesn’t really seal that well. It leaks. Have to be fast in putting in the cart. The other more disturbing thing I have found is that the toner sensor is mounted with what appears to be double stick tape. I tried to pry it loose, but I think it would break before it let go.

Subject: Canon IR 2270 Question: This copier has light copies. I’ve darkened the setting under additional functions but copies are still a little light. Does anyone know any tricks to darken copies? I also put a new drum in and cleaned optics including laser glass. Thanks for any help. Answer: Did you address the xfer roller? What kind of toner are they using? What does the developer roller look like? Di you try vacuuming the dev out, cleaning the roller and s blade, and restarting it? Answer: Did you do the CCD-ADJ when you put in the new drum? Sometimes this helps. You have to follow the procedure in the manual. Answer: Dude, don’t do CCD-ADJ. Do D gamma ADJ.u
