The Perfect Match for Konica Minolta with launch of all-inclusive managed printing package

Langenhagen, Germany | 4 April 2022

In a further move to help customers rethink new levels of simplicity and efficiency with digital transformation, Konica Minolta has launched a new managed printing package for professional printing that will combine Workplace Hub and AccurioPro Flux software.


Called The Perfect Match, Konica Minolta’s “all-in-one-no-care” support package will provide indispensable print process optimisation for more business-critical tasks from less operational IT efforts.

 

The performance-managed service will optimise the central administration of print centres to ensure uptime and work efficiencies, as well as reduce costs. It is targeted at general office and print environments including commercial printers, central reprographic departments, print service providers, copy shops or in-house print shops of a public organisation, university or corporation.

 

Konica Minolta’s Perfect Match provides an attractive package of managed applications powered by Workplace Hub in combination with AccurioPro Flux software. Customers have all the benefits of keeping their own infrastructure always up to date and maintained securely and unobtrusively in the background, with the scalable, all-inclusive package

ensuring they can fulfil all IT requirements and ignite new print possibilities as part of digital transformation.

 

AccurioPro Flux is Konica Minolta’s software solution for powerful make-ready, professional print automation, convenient collaboration and effective output management. The modules Premium and Ultimate provide a central point of control for workflow automation and web-to-print. It offers essential functionality to minimise costs and maximise return on investment.

 

Workplace Hub is the intelligent connected workplace that ensures compatibility with a wide range of Microsoft and other third-party solutions, to meet rapidly changing circumstances and cloud requirements. Konica Minolta services the all-in-one-no-care package that contains the AccurioPro Flux application plus the mandatory hardware. Within a close printroom network, Konica Minolta provides remote monitoring and management services that also link Workplace Hub and print systems.
