Konica Minolta Expands Enterprise Content Management Business with DSSI Acquisition
On September 15th, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. reported that it had acquired Document Scanning Systems and Imaging, Inc. (DSSI) for an undisclosed sum. The firm says the acquisition will allow it to enhance its current document-management capabilities and increase its customer base in the western region of the United States, expanding its enterprise management content (ECM) business.
Located in Chatsworth, California, DSSI is a reseller of OnBase by Hyland and Kofax, and a provider of document-scanning services and information-management solutions for commercial, entertainment, government and healthcare companies. It is a single-source provider that’s said to help businesses to effectively manage, control, and protect their information by creating document-workflow programs for saving time and money. Since 1996, it’s been providing clients with personalized services using document-scanning technology and the latest imaging and database software.
DSSI will merge into Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. ‘s existing ECM operation and will be led by Les Walker, president of Business Intelligence Services for ECM.
Konica Minolta says it will benefit from DSSI’s diverse customer base and grow its OnBase and BPO document-scanning services. It also says it will benefit from Konica Minolta’s expanded ECM solutions portfolio for both the enterprise and mid markets.
“This acquisition supports Konica Minolta’s growing ECM practice with a specialty in scanning, enabling us to better serve our customers who are looking to digitize and ultimately manage content for greater efficiency as well as a smarter work environment,” said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning, Konica Minolta. “Businesses are realizing that they need to make the change for both security purposes and cost-effectiveness, and we’re here to help businesses of all sizes work smarter and take this initial step to bring their workplace into the future.”
“We’re very excited to announce that DSSI has now become part of Konica Minolta,” said Tom Talamantez, Division Vice President for DSSI. “For more than 20 years, DSSI has successfully operated as a division of The ACT-1 Group of Companies, but now with this transition into Konica Minolta comes great synergy as we merge the depth of our experience and expertise with the market leader in enterprise content management. Throughout this process, we have been very impressed with the culture at Konica Minolta and the great value placed on its employees. I’m personally very excited for our team to be joining this world class organization.”
