Give users easy access to the apps and data they need
Rapid advances in technology can make it difficult to work out which apps best meet the needs of your business. At the same time, data storage is becoming increasingly distributed — from cloud-platform apps to home offices — which can leave employees struggling to find the information they need. Managing all that complexity can also be a challenge for IT teams.
One place for all your data - managed by Konica Minolta
Workplace One brings all your infrastructure, data and workflows together into one cloud-hosted environment, with everything managed by Konica Minolta — significantly reducing your manual IT workload. And while we make sure your environment runs smoothly in the background, your people can securely collaborate and access all the Microsoft apps, software, data and business workflows they need, whenever and wherever they work.
A managed Microsoft 365 service Workplace One is specifically designed to help SMBs realise the full potential of Microsoft 365, whether or not they've already rolled it out.
Our consultants will help you:
Select the right Microsoft licence to support your business
Understand how to integrate different apps to work together in the best way
Optimise the performance, flexibility and security of your Microsoft 365 environment
Workplace One simplifies your IT in a variety of ways. It brings all your infrastructure, data and business applications (including other cloud apps you already use) into one place — the Konica Minolta cloud. It helps you roll out the right Microsoft 365 apps and services to meet your business needs. It simplifies infrastructure and user management for your IT team. And gives you access to a service desk staffed by IT experts who can quickly help with queries and issues.
Workplace One is designed to be simple to use. Single sign-on (SSO) means users have a single password to access all their applications, such as Microsoft Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. They also have a single point of access to applications and information via a user-friendly portal that can be customised to act as a company intranet. And it doesn't matter where users are working, or what device they're using — mobile, laptop or desktop — they can access Workplace One using Microsoft Teams, mobile apps or a web browser.
Microsoft 365 has so much to offer that rolling it out can seem quite overwhelming. When you choose Workplace One, we'll start by helping you select the right Microsoft licence. We'll then set up, configure and manage Microsoft 365 in the way that's right for your business. Based on your specific use cases, we'll help you understand how to integrate different apps to work together in the best way. Even if you've already rolled out Microsoft 365, we can integrate your existing cloud apps (Microsoft, Konica Minolta and others) into the Workplace One cloud environment.
And it doesn't stop there. Based on tangible insights we gather about your usage, we can provide you with guidance on additional features and capabilities as your needs change. We can additionally offer consultancy on the optimal solution for your company in terms of its cloud journey.
Workplace One provides security and protection for your data in a number of ways.
When you select one of Microsoft's European data centres to host your Microsoft 365 service, you can be sure your data is securely stored in a GDPR-compliant way.
Workplace One's Managed Backup service provides a fully managed, automated backup and recovery service that protects all your accounts, servers and files — including OneDrive, access to SharePoint through Viva and Microsoft Teams. Your data is backed up from Microsoft 365 to highly available, secure and scalable Konica Minolta cloud data centres in Germany and Sweden, whose ISO 27001 and DIN EN 50600 certifications assure GDPR compliance. Both data centres incorporate multiple security zones, client-specific network isolation, fail-safe emergency power generators, and advanced smoke, fire and heat detection systems.
You can implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) as an additional layer to help prevent unauthorised access to sensitive information. With MFA, your users must present a combination of two or more credentials to verify their identity for login.
Microsoft is working to reduce the environmental impact of its data centres, including those that host Microsoft 365, by working towards stated goals on:
Reducing water waste, operational waste, and cement usage
Becoming diesel free
Using additional, new renewable energy generation
In Europe, the Microsoft data centre in Sweden is the most advanced in terms of sustainability. Features include 100% carbon-free energy, outside air cooling, rainwater capture, and use of lower-carbon renewable fuel for backup power.
Workplace One's Managed Backup service is hosted in Konica Minolta cloud data centres in Germany and Sweden, both of which use 100% renewable energy and are ISO 14001 certified for environmental management. In addition, the data centre in Germany uses ambient air cooling up to an outside temperature of 27C.
Microsoft 365 is the current name for Office 365. A cloud-based service, it offers all the familiar Office apps — including Outlook, PowerPoint, Word, Excel, SharePoint and OneDrive — as well as additional tools and capabilities that enhance content management, teamworking, collaboration and information-sharing, and enable process digitalisation.
