CATALONIA HOTELS & RESORTS
Catalonia Hotels & Resorts is one of the main hotel chains in Spain. It currently has 69 establishments located in Europe, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, and until Konica Minolta optimised the printing fleet, it had over 180 devices and almost 70 different models, from seven different suppliers. Each unit had an individual contract, so the system was highly complicated when it was needed to request maintenance, repairs or toners. It also had problems with bottlenecks and low-quality printing. The long and hard consulting and analysis process started two years ago. Based on the results, Konica Minolta concluded that eight users could work perfectly with just one unit. This is possible because each unit added to the Catalonia Hotels & Resorts chain would have the required features: speed, quality, 6-month toner service life, and most importantly, it easily carried out any type of work, improving the productivity of the users and providing a better service to its clients. The analysis also provided a key piece of data: the amount of equipment could be reduced by up to 25%.
With an annual turnover of approximately DKK 50 billion and more than 36,000 employees in the country, Coop is the leading retailer of consumer goods in Denmark. The company has recently started a comprehensive digitalisation process. Konica Minolta has been a strong, strategic IT partner for the company for several years now, covering the entire service and support set-up for the retail giant. Having proven itself as a partner with a deep understanding of the company’s strategy and strength in project implementation, Konica Minolta was chosen as a supplier of Wi-Fi for the retailer’s more than 1,100 stores. This Wi-Fi is the basis for profoundly transforming them into truly digital shops – making additional services for the customers possible while unburdening staff with tools which enable them to better support the customers.
DTU Byg: Institut for Byggeri og Anlæg
A secure solution, and confidence in the partner delivering and installing it – these were the crucial factors when the Institut for Byggeri og Anlæg at the technical university, DTU, was choosing a storage solution for its workforce. For employees and researchers at the institute, security is the key concern when it comes to storage, as their activities include teaching, research, research-based consultancy and innovation. It can be a critical issue if, for example, a laptop with several months' worth of research is lost, without its contents having been backed up. DTU Byg has been satisfied with NetApp thus far, so this was the obvious choice when the existing solution needed to be replaced.
