Langenhagen/Germany, 19 November 2013

Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe (Konica Minolta) has been awarded the 6th PRINCE2 Best Practice Award 2013 by Best Practice User Group Deutschland e.V. in Frankfurt on 14th November. The prize is being awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in project management based on the PRINCE2 method.

Konica Minolta has been honoured for the project “Enterprise Product Configurator” (EPC), a project to introduce a European-wide product configurator to simplify and standardise sales processes catering to a “clean order”. Supported by several internal departments, Konica Minolta´s Enterprise Projects and Process Management Division is about to introduce a calculation and configuration solution that allows for the configuration and proposal preparation of Konica Minolta systems and services – in this respect, comparable to a car configurator. This ensures that Konica Minolta Sales can offer binding, comprehensive offers to their clients, including consultancy, IT service management as well as unified IT infrastructure, thus confirming Konica Minolta’s strategy of being a customer-focused service provider.

“We feel quite honoured to be awarded this proof of excellence in the project management discipline. After renowned companies like Deutsche Telekom, we feel confirmed in our endeavours to achieve distinction in our internal project management. In this way, we ensure that our customers receive only the best solutions and services, tailored to their specific needs”, says Marc Schachteli, EPC Project Manager from Enterprise Projects and Process Management Division of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.

The panel of judges made up of well-established experts in the field of project management – among others from KPMG AG – found Konica Minolta´s EPC project eminently worthy to receive the prize. Dr. Jörg Lobbes, Member of the Executive Board and head of the “Best Practice Award” division of the Best Practice User Group Deutschland e.V., summarises the reasoning for Konica Minolta’s recognition as follows: “Konica Minoltas approach of customising PRINCE2 for Project management in effective manner has allowed them to deliver a successful project fully utilising the methodologies and foundations of PRINCE2. The jury was impressed by their tailoring of PRINCE2 to fit their requirements, which is one of the fundamental principles of PRINCE2 and a good advertisement of how it can successfully be used to deliver IT projects”
