Konica Minolta Canada Launches Workplace Hub

Konica Minolta’s Workplace Hub, which it first previewed in March 2017.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) yesterday announced the launch of its new IT solution: Workplace Hub, billed as an all-in-one IT solution that unifies all of an organization’s IT-related needs into a single centralized platform.

Designed for small and mid-size businesses, each Hub combines a multifunction printer, data storage, advanced cyber security features, an HP Enterprise server and Wi-Fi access points into a single device. Konica Minolta says the  Workplace Hub promises to reduce IT complexity, remove repetitive IT tasks, end unwelcome distractions, and optimise total IT spend.

Under the leadership of Deputy CTO Dennis Curry, Konica Minolta says it’s been aggressively investing in R&D across the information technology ecosystem to address growing challenges small and mid-size businesses face with IT complexity. The Workplace Hub is said to provide more efficient and effective management of the disparate array of tools, services and devices used by modern organizations. Developed in partnership with global technology leaders Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, Sophos and Microsoft, Konica Minolta says its new Workplace Hub will deliver best in class hardware, security and IT solutions.

Chris Dewart, president and CEO of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) commented: “Advancements in the digital space are constant, and this can often be overwhelming for small and mid-sized businesses. Workplace Hub is our answer to this problem. Workplace Hub not only allows businesses to achieve an effective digital transformation, but it also future-proofs them against the next generation of technological innovation. We truly believe this solution is set to revolutionize the workplace environment.”

Workplace Hub is designed to reduce the overall costs of IT management and services, while also providing real-time data-driven insights that help to improve business processes. Because Workplace Hub acts as the lynchpin-device within an organization’s broader IT ecosystem, the Hub provides users with a central dashboard which demonstrates 360-degree visibility of IT usage patterns across the whole business, allowing for simple management and optimization of systems.

The platform’s product roadmap includes future integration of IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Edge, and Decision Support capabilities as they become more central to the business environment of tomorrow.
