Konica Minolta Previews New Tech at Dealer Conference
At its Dealer Summit conference being held today in Carlsbad, California, Konica Minolta Business Solutions, U.S.A. announced its newest initiatives to support its Workplace of the Future.
The event theme, “Igniting Connectivity,” represents advancements within Konica Minolta’s IT Services Division, All Covered, that the firm says will bring the latest technology to its channels. The company essentially combines its IT services, office solutions portfolio, and consulting services to create its connected workplace platform, “a digital-focused workplace of the future.”
Earlier this year, at its annual Dealer Conference in March, Konica Minolta says it clearly defined its commitment to help dealers serve their existing customers and win new business by supporting them to rethink today’s workplace and redefine the way organizations work. This smaller, more focused summit is said to take closer look into new technologies and how dealers can help customers with solutions for efficiently managing business processes and supporting their digital transformation.
During the general session, Rick Taylor, Konica Minolta’s president and CEO, stressed the importance of strategic technology partnerships to support the connected workplace. “Our acceleration plan to empower SMBs with the latest technologies is key for Konica Minolta and our partners as we look to the workplace of the future to enable our continued success,” said Taylor.
Konica Minolta says it’s also looking to new partnerships to bring more value to its offerings by facilitating direct access to some of the world’s largest technology providers. The company announced a new strategic alliance with Dropbox Business for collaboration, a partnership that it says will take Konica Minolta and its customers to the next level of connected workplace solutions.
“Konica Minolta’s goal is to partner with the best in breed in every category of technology,” commented Mark Simons, Konica Minolta Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances. “In doing so, we are striving to provide opportunities for our dealers to align with leading companies in all areas that support SMBs and the workplace of the future.”
The Dealer Summit will also feature a number of educational sessions, to be hosted on October 10th, focused on new technologies, the connected workplace, production printing, labeling opportunities, industrial printing, and wide-format printing. An “IT Speed Consulting” session will offer insights on security, cloud services, managed voice and managed IT.
