As a Platinum Dealer in business with Konica Minolta for 20 years, Document Solutions Australia is proud to celebrate the outstanding achievement of 12 Buyers Lab (BLI) Awards for the Konica Minolta bizhub i-Series. Presented by Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading analyst of document imaging hardware, software, and services, the independently evaluated awards are a testament to Konica Minolta’s superior quality, usability, and reliability. All recognised devices are part of the A3 MFP (multifunction printer) bizhub i-Series launched in 2019 with great popularity for its forward-thinking design and user experience.
Most notably, Konica Minolta won the BLI 2021 A3 Line of the Year Award, with 10 models in the bizhub i-Series line earning an individual Outstanding Award. On these acknowledged MFPs, George Mikolay, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of A3 Hardware/Production, stated, “Konica Minolta has developed a top-flight portfolio that is a top-rate option for businesses small to large. All 10 of these devices proved highly reliable and are easy to use from a walk-up, workstation, and service perspective. The consistent design also ensures users will be able to seamlessly jump from one speed band to the next based on workload and availability, with little if any drop-off in efficiency and effectiveness.”
Additionally, Konica Minolta earned the BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award, based on long-term comprehensive testing by Keypoint Intelligence. A3 hardware is tested to the maximum monthly duty cycle and assessed through an extensive process by a team of technicians involving IT8 colour charts measured at the 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% test points. During the process spanning five years, 1.5 million pages were produced by the evaluated Konica Minolta machines alone.
“Konica Minolta is proud to receive this acknowledgment and the awards are a testament to the success of Konica Minolta’s newest generation of bizhub i-Series A3 MFP devices,” Mark Brown, general manager – marketing, Konica Minolta Australia states, “With smart MFPs like the bizhub i-Series, Konica Minolta continues to strengthen its position as a reliable partner for intelligent office printing with the needs of the customer at the centre of every device and service Konica Minolta creates.”
We continue to watch Konica Minolta’s innovation and creativity in anticipation as they develop their superb MFP portfolio. Quality, usability, and reliability remain at the core of design with user experience at the forefront – a combination that can only result in exceptional devices we know will continue to be loved by our clients and the business world alike.
