Konica Minolta makes history with winning the A3 MFP Line of the Year Award for the fourth year in a row

There could hardly be a better start to 2014 for Konica Minolta Business Solutions than with winning the BLI’s A3 MFP Line of the Year for the fourth time in a row – unparalleled in BLI Awards history.

Each year Buyers Lab, world’s leading provider of information and testing services to the document-imaging industry, awards the vendor whose product line is best, based on an extensive list of criteria.

Konica Minolta impressed the judges across all areas – reliability, image quality, ease of use and productivity. In addition, Konica Minolta has also won four individual device awards following BLI Pick of the Year Awards for the bizhub C364e, bizhub C454e, bizhub 554e and the Mono Printer for Mid-Size Workgroups bizhub 4700P.

MFD Line of the year

“To be awarded the A3 Line of the Year for the fourth time in a row is an extraordinary honour for us.

This prestigious award fills us with pride and confirmation for our continuous efforts to enable our customers’ businesses.

With the development of new top-class products as well as offering future-proof software and services, we – i.e. our customers and Konica Minolta together –  are well positioned for continued growth”, says Olaf Lorenz, General Manager, International Marketing Division Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.

The fact that the company has been awarded with this accolade for the fourth year in a row speaks for itself: Konica Minolta is known for its customer centricity and understanding of its partners’ challenges; a development that is being mirrored by Konica Minolta’s evolution from a hardware to a services provider in recent years.

The assessment considers criteria such as the breadth of the vendor’s line and its ability to provide quality products suitable to a broad spectrum of customer needs, from low-volume to high-volume.

“What it boils down to with Konica Minolta is consistency,” said George Mikolay, BLI’s senior product editor for A3/Copier MFPs. “Whereas competing lines may stand out in certain speed bands, or in either colour or black, Konica Minolta’s engines stand out across the board – in reliability, ease of use and image quality – in virtually all speed bands in both colour and black.

No other vendor brings the same quality of performance across its product line to the same degree.” BLI Managing Editor Daria Hoffman underlines: “What Konica Minolta has achieved with a fourth consecutive Line of the Year win is unprecedented.

The fact that year after year Konica Minolta continues to surpass the competition is a testament to the sustained quality of its A3 line.”

Reliability has proven to be the quality most important to buyers, and Konica Minolta’s product line has proven to be top of the class in this regard. Its current A3 products have logged more than 1.5 million impressions in BLI’s lab with consistently reliable performance.

“In fact,” said Mikolay, “at real-world monthly usage volumes, it would take five Konica Minolta devices before users would experience even a single mis-feed a month among them.”

BLI Manager of Laboratory Testing Pete Emory added, “The reliability Konica Minolta devices have consistently shown, from the low end to the high end, truly separates its line from others we have tested.”
