Konica Minolta joins SAP Printer Vendor Program

Konica Minolta Business Technologies Inc., parent company to Konica Minolta Business Solutions, recently announced it would be participating in the new SAP Printer Vendor Program, as a gold-level member, launched earlier this month by SAP AG in collaboration with leading printer manufacturers.

The SAP Printer Vendor program is a technology license program SAP manages in cooperation with printer manufacturers to provide supreme quality printing solutions to users of SAP solutions. The program offers participating vendors, including Konica Minolta, access to specific SAP development environments that are necessary to optimise support for their devices operating within customers’ SAP solution based environments.

According to John Venett, National Marketing Manager Konica Minolta, “The big winners will be the customers. The gold-level partnership will allow Konica Minolta to provide a seamless print management capability and allow easy access to all Konica Minolta printer and MFP functions within the SAP operating environment.”

Through participation in the program, users of SAP software solutions can accurately learn about the status of Konica Minolta’s MFPs and printers. Printing from an SAP solution-based system will become easier, while enabling users to have full access to functions of Konica Minolta’s MFPs and printers, such as stapling in finishing process, image adjustment, confirmation of prints, and so on. In addition, effective printing management will become possible by taking quick actions in case of problems.

Konica Minolta is planning to acquire SAP Printer Vendor program approval for all of its MFPs and printers, and will continue to further promote facilitation of office equipment.
