Konica Minolta discusses MPS “revolution”
May 26, 2015
The OEM’s European President commented on how it is “committed to leading the way” in MPS.
European CEO interviewed Ikuo Nakagawa, President of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, who spoke about the growth of MPS in Europe witnessing a “period of transition” towards a “full-service data industry” in which Konica Minolta is “committed to leading the way”.
The OEM has clients in “41 different countries across Europe”, with “tailor-made solutions” allowing companies to “become more sustainable” and “simplify and speed up basic processes”. Nakagawa said that MPS “optimis[es] printing” and “forms the basic foundation for Konica Minolta”, though MPS can help businesses “digitise and face up to major challenges”. These include 90 percent of “all corporate information” being held in documents, and 7.5 percent of documents going missing per year.
Speaking on how Konica Minolta differs from other companies in terms of MPS, Nakagawa stated that it began expanding its Optimised Printing Services (OPS) in 2010, and said it now has 6,000 corporations that are customers, and the executive added that the company is “passionate about creating strategies that lessen the need for printing”. For the future, he stated that the OEM aims to “anticipate our clients’ needs and turn their ideas into reality” through “innovative and meaningful solutions”.
He commented: “We involve our clients in current developments that affect the market and provide them with tailored, end-to-end solutions. Our services, from consulting to implementation and management, cover the whole spectrum of business technology needs. Konica Minolta wants to give shape to people’s ideas, thoughts and concepts. For us, it is vital to not only understand our clients’ technology needs but to help businesses develop in the most effective ways possible.
“Konica Minolta has proven it can be as nimble as a startup, even though it builds on 140 years of tradition. We are especially proud of what we have achieved in Europe since Konica and Minolta merged just over 10 years ago and we hope to continue with those achievements in the future.”
