    Does this take into account printers that the schools already have in place or MUST we get some through this scheme?

    Do we have to purchase the printers as well as do the cost per click or do we get them free from Ricoh for as long as we subscribe to the scheme. Also do we have any minimum volume levels per month / quarter etc?

    Right - Ricoh Click contracts can only be signed up on new purchases as the "box" has to be preconfigured as a "click" box.

    With regards the minimum volume levels, there are none. You just pay for the pages you print, nothing more. There is no minimum charge and you even get billed in arrears.

    When your toner is running low, you simply order more online and Ricoh will deliver them to your school, meaning you dont have to take up valuable space with spare stock.

    Any more questions then fire away

    so if we went ahead, would we have to pay for an overhead on the printers or is it literally covered in the Pay per sheet?

    You pay the standard price for the printer and then thats it - you just pay per page as per the pricing guide I've attached in the original post. If any of you would like to hear from Ricoh to either discuss this in further detail or to arrange an on-site audit to see where this scheme can help to save you money then email me and I'll get it sorted

    Many thanks

    Sorry to chip in at this point - we did look into a per page printing scheme in the past but found the figures were a bit iffy on the 'Why we will save you money' front. With the rising costs of toner etc it seems worth having another look. Is the 'standard price' for the printer Ricoh's RRP, or would this be the standard price when bought through a vendor with decent prices (eg. you!)?

    The price for the printer will be the price we offer it to you, not the RRP

    Feel free to email me if you would like further details or pricing on printers

    Many thanks

    We are on a similar deal with rioch, it works well, quality is great and the stuff produced by the kids looks awesome.

    I have however had issues with the printer drivers, minior issues like landscape no being selectable (or rather you can select it but it defaults back to portrait unless you set it through xp's printer config in control pannel).

    Ok, I've just been speaking to my guy at Ricoh regarding this.

    You have to buy a new printer for this scheme. There is no surcharge for havng the Click meter fitted - you buy the printer at the price I offer it to you (cheaper than RRP). Ricoh then take the warranty out of the box (not needed because of this scheme), put a sticker on with service phone numbers and add the Click meter. Once you receive the printer, you decide if you want a 6 month, 12 month, 2 year etc contract, through to 5 years. 6 months is the minimum contract

    Most customers are signing up to a 36 month contract with 8 hour response. However, should your situation change and you no longer want to be tied in to a 3 year contract, you only have to give 90 days notice. Because you are billed in arrears anyway, if you don't print anything in these 90 days then you won't pay anything for the notice period

    It really is that simple. You buy the printer, sign up to a 6 month or longer contract and then pay the price per page as listed in the attachment in my original post. You order toners online when you are running low and these are delivered next day. Any problems at all then call the service number and if it cant be sorted out over the phone, you will have an engineer there with 4-8 hours, depending on your contract

    If any of you have any further questions then please fire away. I'm just waiting on some pricing to come through on the printers so I'll put this up when I have it

    Many thanks

    Sounds attractive, so from what you put there then there isn't a get out cost to get out of the 3 year contract? Surely there must be one as its cheaper to print on a 3 year contract so do you get billed the different in the prints you have done cost based to the current date of contract length?

    It would be nice to have some indicative pricing for printers. I'll send you over an email with my requirements to see if its worthwhile.
