PUBLISHER'S MESSAGE MAY 2014

Dear readers: You may all wonder how the remanufacturing sector will break its sluggishness and when we will finally see a renewed growth source. The slow foot traffic at the recent ReChina show was a somber reflection of the harsh reality that our industry is losing some very big and strong players and, unlike a few years ago, that there are few new players entering the ring. Indeed, we have seen many factories struggling to stay a float. Gone are the times of bustling crowds filling the grand old Moscow-style Shanghai exhibition hall. While all of these are sad but true facts, we must remain ever hopeful and focus on a potentially less gloomy future. Our editorial team has recently gathered a few industry seniors to voice their viewpoints of the industry challenges and, importantly, opportunities. One of the conclusions arrived at is that it is unavoidable that remanufacturers will have to continuously face legal battles brought by the OEMs. Another consensus is that our industry will continue to face pricing pressure. In order to best compete, we must sharpen our skills and move our businesses into the fields or areas of the market that are propelling the growth. Color, for example, is a growing area in which we have less than 5% of the market share. For more details on what these industry elites and seniors say about the current industry state, be sure to read the "WeSay Report" by Steve Weedon on page 18. In addition to this, we bring you other informative feature articles: "10 years, We Witnesses the Growth of the Remanufacturing Industry - 10th Anniversary of Recharge Asia Magazine" on page12; and Q&A with Jadi Imaging on page 46. Lastly, we are pleased to announce a significant milestone: Recharge Asia Magazine has entered its tenth year. While we are truly proud of what we have accomplished over the past ten years, we are nevertheless simultaneously aware of the challenges and tribulations ahead. We are ever humble and grateful for the opportunity to be a voice for the industry and to bridge the gap between East and West. We thank you, our dear readers, for your continuous and unwavering support. Happy reading,

Sunny Ms. Sunny Sun Publisher suuny@rechargeasia.com

Ricoh Americas, Xerox Corporation and Lexmark File Action with U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to Combat Patent-Licensing Demands

Ricoh Americas Corporation, Xerox Corporation and Lexmark International, Inc. filed two Petitions for Inter Partes Review of U.S. Patent No. 8,488,173 and certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,477,410 at the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). The new actions are being filed jointly by all three companies in a continuing effort to protect Ricoh, Xerox and Lexmark customers and dealers against the assertion of these patents by MPHJ Technology Investments LLC. As part of the Inter Partes Review Petition, Ricoh, Xerox and Lexmark are seeking a ruling from the USPTO that the claims are unpatentable and were fully anticipated by various prior art references. This is the second in series of actions that the companies have undertaken to demonstrate their commitment to their customers and authorized dealer networks. In May 2013, Ricoh and Xerox filed action to nullify U.S. Patent No. 7,986,426 and help disable MPHJ’s licensing campaign against its customers. In addition, MPHJ’s business practices are currently under investigation or have previously been investigated by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as well as the Attorneys General of Minnesota, Nebraska, New York and Vermont. In a joint statement, the companies said “Ricoh, Xerox and Lexmark have clear positions on the protection of intellectual property. We feel strongly that the infringement claims are without merit and the licensing demands of MPHJ are unsubstantiated. We feel it is important to take this action to support our customers and dealer networks from these frivolous claims.” Ricoh, Xerox and Lexmark will continue to monitor MPHJ’s licensing efforts and will update their customers and authorized dealer networks with any further developments regarding the USPTO’s Review.

Aqueous CAD Revolution Drives CEMA Large-Format Printer Market Prague, March 31, 2014 – The Central Europe and Middle East (CEMA) large-format printer (LFP) market experienced a 3.3% year-on-year decline in shipments during 2013 to total 37,120 units, according to IDC's latest Worldwide Quarterly Large Format Printer Tracker. However, there was a 0.6% increase in the market's value, which totaled $332 million for the year. Following three relatively weak quarters for the CEMA LFP market, the fourth quarter of the year proved very successful, accounting for 30% of the year's overall shipments, primarily due to the strong performance of the aqueous CAD segment. "The aqueous CAD market underwent a revolution in the composition of its size segments," says David Mühlbach, a research analyst at IDC CEMA. "HP and Epson introduced new 36" models, which became dominant during 2013 across CEMA region. The stellar performance of this smaller size segment resulted in the 42–44" category's market share of the aqueous CAD market fall from almost 50% in 2012 to just 20% in 2013. The improved price/performance ratio of the 36” printers, combined with price promotions from HP and Epson, resulted in such devices claiming a 40% share of the aqueous CAD segment's volume."

Vendor Highlights Despite experiencing a small year-on-year decline, HP maintained its leadership of the overall CEMA LFP market in 2013, with 52.8% unit share. In the technical LFP space, traditionally HP's strong area, the vendor ranked first with 62.5% unit share. The vendor remained in second place in the graphic LFP segment with 19.8% share. Canon ranked second in 2013, slightly increasing its share of the overall CEMA LFP market's volume year on year to reach 19.3%. Epson placed third overall with 14.3% of the units shipped. Its CAD shipments increased 15.1% year-on-year in 2013 to give the vendor an 8.4% share of that segment, up from 7.1% in 2012. In its traditionally stronger graphic LFP segment, the vendor experienced a slight year-onyear decline in its market share to 34.5%.

Squeezing Light into Metals: Team Controls Conductivity with Inkjet Printer Electrical engineers from the University of Utah created minuscule structures which make use of light in metals to carry information. This was done utilizing an economical inkjet printer. The newly invented method can be exploited to speedily fabricate superfast components in electronic devices, make wireless technology faster or print magnetic materials. Be it internet with a high speed or any methods of transferring data, all depend on light transported through optical fibers with very high bandwidth. If these fibers are contracted then more data can be filled into less space. There exists a drawback though that there is a limit for the amount of data to be carried by optical fibers as light is squeezed into smaller and smaller spaces. On the other hand electronic circuits can be shaped conversely at much smaller sizes on silicon wafers. Conversely, the amount of data carried is reduced because electronic data transfer operates at frequencies having much lower bandwidth. Plasmonics- the latest invented technology provides the best combination of optical and electronic data transfer. It packs light inside metal structures having dimensions smaller than wavelength thus allowing data transmission at a very high frequency as like terahertz frequencies, lying between microwaves and infrared light on the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation which takes into account almost everything, be that X-rays, visible light or gamma rays. As silver and gold increases this crowding effect they show potential to be plasmonic materials. Ajay Nahata, professor of University of Utah and senior author of the new study, said that there are not much high quality technologies for creating terahertz plasmonic devices, which possesses the capability of making wireless devices such as Bluetooth that would operate at 2.4 gigahertz frequency and be a thousand times faster in comparison to the current ones. 10 different plasmonic structures with a periodic array of 2,500 holes with different sizes and spacing on a 2.5-inch-by-2.5 inch plastic sheet were printed by Nahata along with his colleagues by means of an inexpensive inkjet printer and two separate clour cartridges of silver and carbon ink. The four arrays tested contained holes having diameter of 450 microns and spaced one-25th of an inch apart. The plasmonic array's electrical conductivity and its efficiency in carrying an electric current were well managed by the research team. Nahata mentioned that the low-priced inkjet printer gave rise to an inexpensive and accepted method of making plasmonic materials. He added that their technique allows prompt changes to be made to the plasmonic properties of the metal as these structures can be drawn and printed precisely as desired. At present, the making of plasmonic arrays requires expensive

equipment and can be manufactured only one array at a time. Besides researchers have a tough time in controlling conductivity in these arrays. Terahertz imaging is used by Nehata and his colleagues to measure the effect of printed plasmonic arrays on a beam of light. Terahertz imaging is most beneficial for constructive testing for instance inspection of insulation in spacecraft. The Utah team demonstrated that by altering the amount of carbon and silver ink consumed to print array, transmission through this structure can be varied. According to Nahata the new printing method gave them additional control on both transmission of light and electrical conductivity in those devices and structures can be designed with several variations as the printer can produce. Nehata pointed out the many advantages and usefulness of these faster plasmonic arrays. He said that it can be helpful for wireless devices as it facilitates faster data transmission and also for printing magnetic materials due to increased functionality. While only two separate types of inks were used by the Utah team, it is possible to use up to four different inks in a four-color inkjet printer.

Epson Bets on Business Inkjets Epson announced its plan to enter the business inkjet market with a heavy investment of €125m in order to bring its industrial inkjet technology into the market. The first inkjet range of Epson was launched into the consumer market back in the early nineties followed by a further launch of its business printers in 2011 which was sold to the SOHO and SMB markets. At present sales of Epson’s inkjet have outweighed that of laser prints. In order to persist this growth trend Epson plans to dedicate additional effort in this business. Rob Clark, Epson’s VP of marketing for EMEAR, said that their ultimate future is inkjet based and they are still retaining their laser range for that segment of customers who are still doubtful about inkjet. He hopes that they would succeed in swapping people completely to inkjet from laser.

Market Growth Phil Sargeant, program director at IDC, said that presently business inkjets consists of a fifth of the whole SMB print market in Europe. He forecasts this would increase further and make up 25% of the printer and multifunction market by the year to17.

He mentioned that while laser market deteriorated over the past few years, the business inkjet market developed continuously over the years. He noted that at present the inkjet market is led by Epson, Hp Canon and Brother. They gained added advantage due to Lexmark and Kodak leaving the market. However it should be kept in mind that this market has become quite attractive to other businesses and they might just enter the market to exploit the benefits. The introduction of the most recent range of WorkForce Pro inkjet printers is the main explanation of Epson’s push, which uses the firm’s PrecisionCore print head technology originally developed for industrial applications. The Japanese vendor made known about its investment of €125m into two new production lines, enabling Epson to take the technology out to the volume market. Epson exposed its original WorkForce Pro RIPS, a range of inkjet products capable of delivering continuous printing for up to 75,000 pages. Epson said that this product is intended to assist businesses exploit the benefits of a localized printer fleet, but with the expected costs of a centralized model.

Targeting managed print channel Further information regarding Epson’s channel strategy is still to be known. Then again Epson said that RIPS will be aimed at a formal managed print services (MPS) channel. Epson did not make any statement on the pricing of the products as it wants the channel to have the opportunity to build in other services under an MPS contract. Clark mentioned that they plan to maintain a tight channel and that it is a product they want going narrow distribution on. John Kelly, senior manager at Epson, said that employing channel partners is going to be a big challenge for the firm since UK has a less mature MPS engagement in comparison to other countries in Europe.

HP Plans 3D Printer Announcement for June

121 Issue May 2014

Stratasys Q4 Strong, Aims to Take MakerBot, 3D Printing Mainstream David Reis, CEO of Stratasys, said that 3D printing will become more conventional if its distribution for MarkeBot 3D printers is expanded and a consumer unit is introduced.

According to Whitman at HP’s shareholder meeting 3D printing comprises of two problems- one is that it is extremely slow and the other being its quality which is not up to the mark, especially the sur face of the substrate. Whitman mentioned that they have come to a solution of both these problems and will be making a big declaration in June. However she asked to not to assume that HP would be launching new products then, instead HP would demonstrate what it is acting on currently and its future plans. She added that primarily the products would be directed at business markets, as they are thought to have the required demand for systems that can be used for printing trial products and finished products. A lot of speculations surrounded HP’s 3D printing plans because printers form the core part of the company’s business and there existed a negative conjecture that if HP would be left behind in the field of 3D printing. A shareholder questioned Whitman if HP was concerned about its growth and if it is then what was the reason for it not having any 3D printers available even at this time. 3D printing is trending in the market and is the most hyped up topic in the industry. A number of firms are selling them and as said by IDC, a research firm, there would be an increase by 67% from the year 2013 in the number of 3D printers sold. Whitman spoke about HP’s upcoming plans on mobile. It introduced the first of its “PHABLET” in India and at present is working out on entering the smart phone market. Whitman said that HP is not into taking any such initiatives where they can lose a lot of money but they are more into taking initiatives which would maintain a stable inflow of earnings for HP.

He said that a distribution deal with Dell will lead to building of apps and an ecosystem and the launch of educational products would result in strengthening of 3D printing adoption. The company ultimately aims to introduce 3D printing to consumers, producers and small businesses in order to have them purchase Fortus systems for manufacturing. Industrial systems are the core revenue generating product for Stratasys. However, MakerBot possesses the potential to become a brand that a broader base of users comes to know via an app ecosystem, more affordable printers, outlets, an online community and 3D printing hub. MakerBot was acquired last year through the acquisition of Object. Stratasys and Object are together giving efforts for research and development. Sratasys, reported a net loss of $2 million, or 4 cents per share in its fourth quarter. The revenue was reported to be $155.1 million and Non-GAAP earnings to be 50 cents per share. The forecasted earnings of Wall Street for the fourth quarter were 49 cents per share and the forecasted revenue was $151 million. Stratasys is making its investment mostly in research and development to prepare itself for the upcoming competition with Hewlett-Packard. 9.9 percent of the revenue of Stratasys was spent on research and development in its fourth quarter. The number of 3D printing and manufacturing systems sold by Stratasys were 10,963 and 75,818 in the fourth quarter and in 2013 respectively. It reported a net loss of $26.9 million, or 68 cents a share, on revenue of $484.4 million for the year ended December 31. Sratasys forecasted non-GAAP earnings of $2.15 a share to $2.25 a share on revenue of $660 million to $680 million for 2014 based on the expectation of expanding organic saled by 25 per cent to be the minimum. MakerBot is going to be the wild-card for Stratasys. It costs less than the highend additive manufacturing printers. It is still uncertain how a consumer desktop 3D printer will fare in the market. According to Reis, the combination of the Stratasys product and the MakerBot product will be something great. He mentioned that they are putting efforts on research and development to a great extent to share IP and technology.

Ninestar Releases Updated Product Solution for HP 564/364/178/862 Series Last month, Ninestar was pleased to announce new updated cartridges for the HP 564/364/178/862 series which will solve a common problem.

and was the first to release updated cartridges to solve this problem, thus meeting the end users' needs.

Back in 2010, HP updated its printers and cartridges rendering compatible products ineffective. A similar situation has happened again.

The Photosmart 5520 series printers enjoyed strong sales in 2013 and it is likely that this might be the case with other HP products. As a result, while current cartridges on the the market may work with older models, they may not be compatible with new ones.

According to our technical engineers, HP updated the firmware design in its Photosmart 5520 series printers (564/364/178/862 cartridges) in late 2013. Consequently, current compatible inkjet cartridges cannot be recognized.

Ninestar is committed to closely following market trends and to providing high quality and reliable products and solutions for its customers. Please contact Ninestar directly if you have any questions.

At the beginning of this year, Ninestar closely followed this trend

Memjet Joins Forces With Australian Dynamic Supplies To Expand Footprint Califor nia-based printer manufacturer Memjet has partnered with Australian distributor Dynamic Supplies in a bid to expand its footprint in Australia and New Zealand. The U.S. company is targeting general office supplies and small- and medium-sized enterprises primarily but also services the industrial and commercial sectors. Dynamic Supplies, for its part, distributes the products of major printer makers such as Kyocera, Canon, Samsung, Xerox and Fuji. Memjet’s president Kim Beswick commented that the presence of such big players in Dynamic Supplies’ client portfolio will represent an opportunity for the smaller company, as it relies on its low-cost proposition to lend it a competitive edge. In its partnership with the Australian distributor, Memjet will market its C6000 officer printer model, offering incentives such as rewards and rebates for resellers that commit to place larger quarterly orders. The move should establish Memjet as alternative to larger players in the field.

Ricoh Helps Publishers and Book Printers to Evolve into the Digital Age at London Book Fair Ricoh Europe, London, 08 April 2014 – At the London Book Fair 2014, Ricoh Europe is highlighting how forward-thinking publishers and book printers can enhance the value of print by embracing a series of technological innovations. Ricoh will also discuss with attendees how recent trends have reshaped the industry’s approach to technology and opened up a range of possibilities for how content is accessed and consumed. From April 8-10, at Earls Court, London company experts at stand R505 will present the following innovations designed to help drive the publishing and book printing industries further forward into the digital age: • Video books – combines text, videos, pictures and any other media for a new reading experience on a tablet device. Screens are embedded within a publication and feature a link to additional relevant content. • Clickable Paper – a powerful, interactive print solution that bridges the online and offline worlds. It has the ability to provide immediate one-touch access to up to six different online resources such as video/multimedia, web sites, e-commerce portals and social networks. Clickable Paper technology is applicable to any kind of printed media, including books, newspapers, magazines, direct mail, brochures, promotional materials and posters. • Open Text Book Portal – an online service that enables organisations such as universities to provide students with access to textbook content in multiple formats including print, Word documents and ebooks. • Custom textbooks – enables the digital production of highly tailored textbooks with content designed for specific purposes, such as classroom materials and reading lists, that can be updated frequently. The service is ideal for university professors that prefer to create their own specific course materials rather than rely on predefined textbooks. Attendees can learn more about these technologies by interacting with the 42-inch touchscreen Electronic Learning Table at the Ricoh stand.

Further future insight Ricoh will also host a special breakfast meeting with leading publishers and influencers on Wednesday 9 April. The panel event, entitled Transforming Creative Business in a Digital Age – Exploring New Business Models, will be chaired by an industry expert and include Ricoh representatives, as well as key speakers from the publishing world who will be considering how the industry can adapt to the digital future. Benoit Chatelard, General Manager Solutions, Production Printing Business Group, Ricoh Europe says, “The publishing industry is under enormous pressure from a number of market forces, ranging from shortening run lengths to the use of alternative media. In addition, technology-led disruption is set to bring further challenges. Ricoh sponsored research conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit reveals that 86 per cent of European business leaders expect some form of technology-led disruption in the next three years. However, there are many ways to address current and future challenges while safeguarding the core print element that is critical to the publishing business. We look forward to leading and contributing to discussions at the London Book Fair while further exploring how we can support publishers and book printers as they make the transition into the digital age.”

Unanimous Decision by the Supreme Court in Favor of Static Control Static Control has the right to sue Lexmark on grounds of false advertising Sanford, N.C. – (March 25, 2014) – A unanimous United States Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that Static Control could sue Lexmark under the Lanham Act (false advertising) arising out of Lexmark’s prebate program. According to Actionable Intelligence, “…the Supreme Court held that Static Control represents the type of party the Lanham Act is designed to protect.” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion adopted by all nine justices. “…Static Control adequately alleged proximate causation by alleging that it designed, manufactured, and sold microchips that both (1) were necessary for, and (2) had no other use than, refurbishing Lexmark toner cartridges. It follows from that allegation that any false advertising that reduced the remanufacturers business necessarily injured Static Control as well.” Lexmark first sued Static Control in 2002. Lexmark was initially successful in having the trial court throw out Static Control’s counterclaims against Lexmark. The case went to trial in 2007 with a jury verdict in Static Control’s favor. After trial, Static Control successfully convinced the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to reinstate Static Control’s claims for Unfair and Deceptive

Trade Practices and false advertising. Lexmark petitioned the Supreme Court to reconsider. The Supreme Court rejected Lexmark’s request. Static Control’s claims against Lexmark are based, in part, on Lexmark falsely telling remanufacturers that remanufacturing “Prebate” cartridges was illegal. The Lanham Act, a federal statute, prohibits false advertising. The trial court initially rejected Static Control’s Lanham Act claim, but the Sixth Circuit reinstated it. Lexmark asked the Supreme Court to overrule the Sixth Circuit verdict. “We are extremely pleased the Supreme Court agrees Lexmark should be held accountable for its actions,” said President Bill Swartz. “I only wish Ed, our founder, my father, were here to enjoy this victory with us.” “The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision should send a strong message to Lexmark,” said William London, Static Control’s General Counsel. “We plan to move forward with our false advertising suit against Lexmark and prove we were damaged by Lexmark’s false advertising.”

This image from early 2003 was taken shortly after Lexmark initially sued Static Control. From left to right: Bill Swartz, Static Control Founder Ed Swartz and William London, Static Control’s General Counsel.

This image was taken on the footsteps of the Supreme Court in December 2013 when oral arguments were heard.

Industry Watch: Current "Strange" Situations in the China's Print Market

产业观察 : 中国打印市场 目睹之“怪”现状

最近一段时间,“死水一潭”的打 印业又开始活络起来了。作为行业的一 份子,笔者发现了一些有趣的、值得思 考的现象,因此,也就形成了本文。 谁台前?谁幕后? 前几日,收到 Brother 公司发来的快 件。是一封信,内容是人事变动信息。 Brother 中国区董事长换为加藤和利,而 Brother 中国打印机业务的操盘手——尹 炳新升职了!其新的职位是董事兼总经 理,显然,这是 Brother 公司对尹炳新能 力和业绩的认可。

子太大。笔者只是说出了当下的现状, 并可以举几个例子来佐证。 前面提及的 Brother,在中国,打印 机的渠道和行销都是由尹炳新全权负责。

的产品研发模式,颇有两耳不闻窗外事 的范儿。 不过,已经有一些厂商开始转变,

作为天津人,尹炳新显然更明白中国市

与通用耗材是战是和? 佳能一直在和通用耗材厂商打官司, 也难怪,在打印领域,佳能是拥有专利 技术最多的厂商,没有之一。 但现实情况是,佳能几乎只在欧美 地区发起专利诉讼,而对中国大陆却置 若罔闻。

那边厢却是打印机厂商的集体失语(不 沉默也没辙),可谓冰火两重天。 对于通用耗材,打印机厂商应该持 怎样的态度? 个人以为,这必须遵循市场规律, 把选择权还给用户。 笔者仍然记得 2012 年珠海耗材展上

而《再生时代》董事总经理李广连 分析称,通用耗材和原装耗材的市场份 额最多是三七开,这是一个较为合理的 比例。 综合起来看,通用耗材和打印机厂 商应该是一个互补且和谐共存的态势, 而没有必要势同水火。 共同把蛋糕做大才是王道。 来源:太平洋电脑网 - 冉广

Mai Yongcheng, GM of Ricoh China: China Market Will be Biggest Growth Point

富士施乐升级 理光中国总经理麦永成: “全包服务 " 中国市场将是最大增长点 覆盖中国 430 个城市 “我的普通话说得怎么样?是不是很流利?”麦永成风风火 富士施乐近来升级了“全包服务”, 希望借此帮助用户一站式解决售后问题。 富士施乐向业界重点推出的全包服务 具体内容主要包括:凡购买富士施乐数码 复合机、打印机、数码印刷系统等设备的 用户,都可以与富士施乐 ( 中国 ) 签订“全 包服务”合同,客户每月根据自己的复印 量向富士施乐缴纳固定费用,企业将提供 客户一切运作所需的零配件和除纸张之外 所有耗材以及相关服务。 同时,富士施乐会安排专业的工程师 定期主动维护和保养复印机,在耗材达到 使用寿命前更换新耗材。这样,就可以保 证文印工作处于“永不停印”的状态,在 保证机器正常运转的同时保证客户的工作 效率不受影响。

火走进会议室,一边热情地和环球人物杂志记者握手,一边拿自 己这口怪腔调的普通话开着玩笑。 采访之前,理光中国的品牌宣传主任王艳就告诉记者:“麦 总很健谈,也很开放,你们随便问,他肯定是知无不言,言无不尽。”果不其然, 两个多小时的采访中,麦永成一直侃侃而谈。对所处行业以及公司面临的瓶颈,他 毫不避讳;对于未来产品的发展趋势,他坦诚直言;而对于 30 年的职场体会,他 更是倾囊相授。 “要去思考蓝海市场在哪里” 环球人物杂志:办公自动化这个概念是理光最早提出来的,在这方面,理光一 直是领军者。但科技日新月异,简单的打印、复印已远远不能满足办公的需要。理 光会在哪些方面寻求突破? 麦永成:办公室自动化,就是 OA(Office Automation)这个词是从理光开始的。 几十年前,复写就是直接用手抄,用复写纸。后来理光开始谈 OA。刚开始,大家 对 OA 的理解就是复印机,现在是产品加服务了,我们称之为文档管理服务。你可 以把所有和文档处理相关的工作都外包给我们,有专人帮你操作。比如,我们在北 京和一些图书馆、纸媒合作。他们有几十年的文件,很珍贵,但不知道该怎么保存、 建档。我们来做,他们就可以专注在自己的核心业务上。 再就是彩色打印机。现在在日本,每 100 台打印机大概有 80 台是彩色的,欧 洲和美国大概是 70%,但是中国大陆只有 20% 是彩色打印机。 此外,理光还在做一种尝试,就是提供整体的 IT 服务。现在办公室的 PC 机、 平板电脑和复印机、打印机是各自独立的,而实际上,它们应该成为一个整体。 这三方面,是我上任以后,在中国市场推行的三件事。 环球人物杂志:在理光公司整体框架内,中国市场处于什么位置? 麦永成:坦率地说,过去几年,理光在中国的成绩不很理想。但未来,中国一

富士施乐 ( 中国 ) 有限公司资深副总 裁陈贻进表示,区别于一般的售后服务模 式,富士施乐整体的全包服务解决方案具 有其独特的优势:富士施乐在业界最早提 出全包服务的概念;同时,建立了强大的 售后服务体系,目前已覆盖中国 430 个城 市,在 28 个城市设有常驻工程师,设立 44 个客户服务办公室,确保第一时间提 供及时、有效的服务;另外,专业的服务 团队、先进的技术以及最为重要的全包服 务质量体系都是确保用户“永不停印”的 关键性保障。

定是最大的增长点。以前大家认为中国只是世界工厂,而现在,中国已经是全世界 第二大经济体。中国的内需很大很大,看看汽车消费就知道了,中国汽车卖得多好! 因为大家都有钱花了。 具体到 OA 设备,一线城市的办公设备要更新换代,而二三线城市还在大量购买。 还有很多大型跨国公司要在中国开更多分公司,建立更多分销点,每新开一个办公点, 就有对 OA 的需求。 环球人物杂志:中国市场确实有巨大的潜力,但有一个问题也不容忽视,就是 无纸化办公趋势。对此您怎么看? 麦永成:从 10 年前互联网开始影响我们生活的时候,大家就在想象,不用纸 张就可以办公。可现实很矛盾。个人来讲,我们每天在网上看新闻、看电子书、写 邮件,都不用纸张。但是商业世界还是很传统的,什么都要打印出来。尤其是政府 部门,文件必须是纸质的,因为要盖章。最大的用纸单位就是政府,而政府要改是 很难的。 来源:光明网
