Day in the life: Kyocera Reseller Manager NSW

Binh Johnson

From service technicians to reseller managers, take a behind-the-scenes look at the working day of the people at Kyocera Document Solutions.

Name: Binh Johnson

How long have you worked for Kyocera Document Solutions? I have been at Kyocera for about nine years now.

What is your role at Kyocera?

I have held a few roles at Kyocera, always in the New South Wales indirect sales channel team, working with Kyocera partners. I am currently one of two Reseller Development Managers in the New South Wales Branch. Resellers are an important part of Kyocera’s sales channel because they represent the brand to our customers.

What does a typical day look like for you?

No two days are ever the same! My days are very driven by what my resellers need to assist them selling Kyocera products. I could be working on a marketing campaign, actioning service requests, recommending products, quoting or conducting catch up meetings. I often spend time out on the road meeting with various resellers and discussing their needs. The list goes on!

What did you do before joining the Kyocera team?

Before Kyocera, I worked for Panasonic on an eight month maternity contract, looking after their mobile phone business. Before that, I was at Ingram Micro, a national IT products distributor for four years.

Hobbies and interests?

I haven’t been free to indulge in any hobbies or interests for the last two years because I have been building our dream home. When I get my life back (3 weeks away!), I would like to go back to enjoying skiing, baking goodies, holding dinner parties and dabbling in some knitting/sewing.

What do you do when you’re not working?

I look after my six year old son and husband! I also love watching my free to air TV programs and learning Pilates. My favourite TV show is Channel Nine’s The Block All Stars”.

Why do you like working at Kyocera?

I like the environmental philosophy that goes into producing our products. I try to use less packaging and recycle as much as I can at home. I am very excited about starting my very first compost at the new house! I also like Kyocera’s offering of reliability and cost savings. I always try to save money so it makes me feel happy/satisfied that I can offer our customers the opportunity to do the same. Finally I love the people I work with – there are some amazing people at Kyocera!

KYOCERA Cloud Connect now with Google Drive. Providing businesses with even more flexibility

CloudCloud computing and cloud storage are becoming increasingly relevant in today’s business environment, as customers want to store and access data from anywhere at any time.  Here we talk with Kyocera’s Product Marketing Manager, George Kharoufeh, about how the cloud works and Kyocera’s new connection with Google Drive that makes accessing your data straightforward and reliable.

George can you tell us about “The Cloud” and KYOCERA Cloud Connect?

The Cloud comprises of any and all applications and services hosted and run on servers connected to the Internet  The Cloud allows users to access from any device at any time, providing that their files are saved ‘in the cloud’. KYOCERA Cloud Connect is the solution that bridges Kyocera’s multifunctional products to two of the top cloud service applications publicly available today.

So what’s the new and improved KYOCERA Cloud Connect?

Well, not only can our Cloud Connect enable scanning and printing of files in Evernote, but now also files in Google Drive, directly from most Kyocera multifunctional product control panels. The application enables scanning and printing of files in Google Drive and Evernote,  cloud service providers, directly from HyPAS enabled Kyocera multifunctional product control panels.

What functions does KYOCERA Cloud Connect allow users to perform now?

The KYOCERA Cloud Connect application now allows users to upload scanned files directly to Google Drive and Evernote from the touch screen control panel of a Kyocera multifunctional product without the need to scan to a PC, laptop or smart device. When a hardcopy of a document is needed users can retrieve and print files stored in Google Drive and Evernote directly from the Kyocera product in file formats including JPEG, PDF and TIFF.

It seems things are just being made easier and easier for us. Can you give us some examples of where KYOCERA Cloud Connect could be used?

KYOCERA Cloud Connect keeps customers connected wherever they are. This means that you can scan to your account and take the data with you and you can also print anywhere in the world on any Kyocera HyPAS enabled device. This application allows for easy sharing of data across multiple  offices globally. For example a large document can be scanned into the Cloud by a corporations  Sydney office. It can then be accessed by any office worldwide– wherever a customer chooses to share the corporate access to their Cloud Connect account.

KYOCERA Cloud Connect is available from Kyocera Document Solutionsor their authorised dealer network.

Are Aussies doing the right thing with E-waste?

An ongoing problem we share in the Australian community is our strong dependence on using landfill for our waste management. Recent years have seen a change in trends with more and more Australians becoming conscious of their own recycling habits.

In 2001, 19 million tonnes of waste were disposed of to landfill, and by 2007 this figure had grown to 21.3 million tonnes. Contributing to this statistic includes municipal waste, commercial and industrial waste and construction and demolition waste.

As Individuals we contribute to the growth in waste going to landfill figures incredibly. Between 1996-97 and 2006-07, the volume of waste produced per person in Australia grew from 1,200 kg per person to 2,100 kg per person per year. So how can an individual make a difference? Why not check out some hints and tips from Clean Up Australia on how you could shed an elephant or two by living greener at home and work.

However it’s not just individuals who can make a difference, businesses also need to be aware of projects and programmes that can help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
