In the past three years we have seen more clients who are expressing concern about their computer printer operating costs. I had this change in focus confirmed when discussing a new product with a potential supplier from Israel. He indicated that their software has taken off for adoption since 2008 due to more emphasis being placed on the cost of printer operations.
Over the past three weeks I have been working with a client that is looking to buy a new wide format (engineering) MFP. In that time they have demo'd four makes and models of equipment and looked at the plot management software that supports the hardware devices. The client's need is well defined and they understand what they are looking for.
In my first blog about my experiences in using a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet I was able to share first impressions as I started out with this new tool. This week's blog covers my first full week of working with the tablet as I was in client meetings, some committee sessions with my Rotary club and as I tried out more of the applications available for the Android operating system.
Recently I had this discussion with one of our clients who was complaining that their colour MFP service rate was too high. Of course rates are not set arbitrarily, they are based upon the real operating costs of the device being used.
I lead off this week's digest with an article for 11 Microsoft freebies which can help you in your daily tasks. Then there is some more on the RIM Playbook and an intro to another new tablet with a unique docking tool.
I recently configured a workflow design for a client who is planning to use a multifunction printer (MFP) for document scanning to support a service work order application.
I just returned from the Kyocera Americas conference in Las Vegas and something really stood out for me when I was looking at all of the new Kyocera copiers (MFP) units on display. While the new line up of products is impressive in the end it is the long list of Apps which will be able to be used with them that is really most impressive.
