Flexible working thanks to Konica Minolta Cloud Print

Randstad is the world's leading staffing services provider. They offer their clients from a wide range of industries a variety of personnel service concepts, not just temporary employment. As a recruitment agency, they have to be flexible in providing staff to their customers. And they have to be just as flexible in their working conditions. Thus, they paid special attention to the New Way of Work and mobile working and they were looking for a print solution to empower them in these areas.


“Work Anywhere – branch office, headquarters, it doesn't matter! And with Konica Minolta's solutions, like Cloud Print, we have achieved exactly that.”

Carsten Priebs, CIO/CDO, Randstad Germany
 
“From an IT perspective in particular, it is very advantageous not to operate our own printing infrastructure. All services run in the Konica Minolta data centre and we don't have to worry about it. In terms of solution design, we were particularly impressed by Konica Minolta's Chrome browser plug-in. This allows us to integrate not only the notebooks but also our Chromebooks into the solution. This is a real unique selling point of Konica Minolta and a very cool feature. We are pleased that we were able to realise such an agile and progressive project with Konica Minolta.”

Stefan Sturm, Manager IT Infrastructure, Randstad Germany

Challenge

Challenge
  • The company has a desk-sharing concept, i.e. employees no longer have a fixed workplace. However, they should always have a printer available.
  • Many of the documents contain personal data (e.g. employment contracts). These should not be openly left in any printer.

Solution

Solution
  • The cloud print solution Workplace Pure from Konica Minolta was implemented:
    • Follow-me print: The print data is sent to the cloud. Employees go to any printer (e.g. also in other branch offices), authenticate themselves and get their personal prints.
    • Interface to Google Workspace:
      • Use of Google login data makes administration much easier and at the same time increases security
      • Scan to Google Drive possible
      • Chrome browser plug-in: not only notebooks, but also Chromebooks could be integrated into the solution
  • Harmonisation of printer fleet and reduction of total number of printers (from 100 to 17)

Benefits

Benefits
  • Foster mobile working
  • Foster more sustainable printing behaviour, as employees print less, as only those print jobs are output that are really necessary
  • High security of sensitive documents such as employment contracts through follow-me print
  • Increased the performance of the printers so that the printouts come out faster
  • Relieves the IT department: Randstad does not need to operate their own printing infrastructure anymore and all services are run in the Konica Minolta data centre
