New Konica Minolta colour devices perfectly suit today’s mobile working styles

| 14 August 2015

With the bizhub C308 and the bizhub C368, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe (Konica Minolta) presents two attractively enhanced colour devices to replace their counterparts in the well established and successful colour bizhub e-series. Promising highest quality, productivity and reliability, the new multifunctional devices answer a variety of business needs, focusing in particular on the mobility of knowledge workers. Among the key features of the new devices are mobile support, device management, Cloud support, and Konica Minolta’s unique solution platform.

As a market leader in integrated office colour communication solutions, Konica Minolta continuously upgrades and updates not only its range of innovative applications but also its hardware product portfolio. With these latest hardware introductions, the company presents two premium models that deliver sophisticated functionality and top quality at colour speeds of 30 and 36 ppm respectively.

Working with the bizhub C308 and C368 is a joy thanks to the intuitive operation panel with integrated mobile touch area. Embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) enables users to pair their mobile devices, for example for convenient authentication; print documents directly from and scan jobs directly to a mobile device without using a PC. All in all, the various enhancements make operating both colour systems very similar to using today’s smartphones and tablets – it’s all completely self-explanatory. And for even more convenience, the panel and printer driver interface can be customized to each user’s individual needs and requirements, making users even more efficient in their daily print, scan and copy tasks. At the same time, IT administrators benefit from both devices’ straightforward and convenient network integration, which much facilitates and speeds up their work.

Konica Minolta's PageScope Mobile App offers another possibility to increase the overall mobility of office staff. Taking advantage of this mobile device App, which is available free-of-charge, users can smoothly connect their smartphones and tablets to the bizhub C308 or C368, and enjoy convenient and stress-free printing of documents from as well as scanning jobs to their mobile device – from any location.

"Our two new office devices give customers a perfect opportunity to smoothly integrate colour and flexibility into their very own working style. Mobile workers in particular benefit from the possibility to pair their mobile devices in order to conveniently authenticate, print and scan," explains Melissa Andres, Product Manager Office Printing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, and continues: "At Konica Minolta, we are proud to offer customers from every line of business yet another comprehensive solution for their daily office tasks. Thanks to the consequent focus on solution connectivity, the new bizhub C308 and C368 integrate easily and smoothly into any kind of business process."

Equally important, the bizhub C308 and C368 are sustainable products with integrated state-of-the-art technology, which among others ensures a competitively low power consumption. In sleep mode, for example, the power consumption could be reduced to less than 0.5 watt. At the same time, more than 25% of the new devices’ casing is made of recycled materials. These are just two of various factors that support reduced CO2 emissions during the manufacture and use of the bizhub C308/C368. Besides the aspect of eco-friendliness, this also means lower energy costs resulting in attractive savings.
