Konica Minolta Acquires ECM Provider AMS Imaging
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. has acquired AMS Imaging, a maker of enterprise content management (ECM) software for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition is intended to support and further expand Konica Minolta’s ECM business.
As part of the acquisition agreement, AMS Imaging will become part of Konica Minolta’s ECM business practice and market its products and services under the Konica Minolta name. Its primary office location in Warwick, Rhode Island, will continue to support the New England, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut markets, as well as house the company’s management and administrative staff.
“Core to our services and solution strategy is to provide our customers with expanded offerings such as ECM in conjunction with our existing award-winning software portfolio,” commented Sam Errigo, senior vice president for Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A.’s Business Intelligence Services. “The acquisition of AMS Imaging expands Konica Minolta’s existing ECM practice with the addition of highly skilled solutions analysts, solutions engineers and imaging staff with extensive industry knowledge and expertise to support our customers. Additionally, by expanding our ECM portfolio, we are complementing our existing core competencies that aim to continuously deliver the most innovative workflow solutions to our customers.”
AMS Imaging was established in 1971, and offers end-to-end ECM solutions, including consulting services, software, digital-scanning equipment, and production-scanning services.
“We are excited to combine AMS Imaging’s extensive sales and support capabilities with the breadth of Konica Minolta’s offerings,” says James McKenney, CEO AMS Imaging. “With this move, our newly combined teams will be able to leverage shared and proven best practices and resources to expand our ECM business while providing the highest levels of support for our customers.”
Konica Minolta says its commitment to the development of a national ECM practice, vertical market expertise, Managed IT Services, application development, and more than 120 branch office locations across the country are some of the reasons that AMS Imaging has joined the organization.
