With the help of the Sherpa TCO tool, I was able to add another $6000 in revenue and $2000 in profit to the sale of a copier to a current customer! During the installation we discussed their color printers they have scattered throughout the office. With the help of the Compass TCO Tool and the analysis reports it generated I was easily able to show the customer that switching to our printers would save them money and be more efficient.

The Compass Sherpa TCO analysis helped to educate a local hospital customer as to the value and cost savings of upgrading & consolidating their equipment. Ultimately the value was over $600 a month in lowered service/toner costs. We were able to offer equipment that cost the customer less while expanding their capability. The tools contained in Compass Sherpa helped to facilitate the customer education and understanding which resulted in a sale amounting to over $106,000.

I found an opportunity at a school where I was going head to head with a couple of competitors. I identified that COMPASS SHERPA would provide me with the ‘edge’ in this deal. The TCO was the key to being able to provide clarity to the client about their current situation. The Cost Analysis report proved to be the difference in this deal – it was easy for the client to read and provided them with a true dollar value of what they were currently spending each month. The Principal of the school was extremely impressed with the information that was presented to her and we were able to design a quality solution for the school.

Compass Sherpa’s TCO tool made it simple to produce an easy to follow chart that a prospect could show her board. The TCO tool showed the non-technical people at a glance how we could save them money by investing in software and upgrading hardware. The result was 3 new machines and a software package!

Using Compass Sherpa’s TCO model to enter in the customer’s current competitor equipment with purchase prices and toner cost to get their true cost of ownership allows us to present to the customer showing their actual cost per image. With that, we usually can match or beat what they are currently spending, typically allowing 35-50% in gross profit on our commercial grade machines. What a great tool to maximize our gross profit and still save the customer money!

We just started using Compass a few months ago and I was able to use the TCO section to help me sell a machine. I input the machine they were looking at and was able to show the customer how much money they would save on supplies with my equipment. Thanks to Sherpa keeping my conversations and appointments tracked and the detail from the TCO I was able to close the deal.
