Konica Minolta’s devices particularly stand out with regard to reliability, quality and usability

Konica Minolta is proud to announce that it has received 12 Buyers Lab (BLI) Awards from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading and independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services.

This is an acknowledgment of the capabilities of Konica Minolta’s multi-functional peripheral devices (MFPs) with the leading industry awards. All devices are from Konica Minolta’s new bizhub i-Series, underlining the successful relaunch of the company’s MFP range. In addition to 10 BLI 2021 Pick Awards for its bizhub A3 MFPs, Konica Minolta secured the BLI 2021A3 Line of The Year Award. Based on long-term comprehensive testing, Konica Minolta was further acknowledged with the BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award.
Companies demand consistent quality, reliability and the highest levels of usability from their office printers – and it is in exactly these areas that Konica Minolta’s A3 bizhub i-Series range impressed the testers from Keypoint Intelligence. Twelve Konica Minolta bizhub A3 MPFs received the Highly Recommended overall rating for outstanding performance in Keypoint Intelligence lab testing. Ten of those models earned Pick Awards in their respective segments: bizhub C250i, C300i, C450i, C550i, C650i, 300i, 360i, 450i, 550i and 750i. This earned Konica Minolta additionally the ‘BLI 2021 A3 Line of the Year’ award.
“We are very proud to receive these renowned awards for our A3 MFP devices. They also come at a deciding point for the evolution of our MFP portfolio, as these devices are from our newest generation of bizhub i-Series MFP devices. With smart MFPs like the bizhub i-Series we continue to strengthen our position as a reliable partner for our customer in intelligent office printing. For every device we develop and service we create, we always put our customer’s needs and routines in the centre,” explains Florian Loske, Manager Office Product Management, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.
This underlying philosophy in product design is the basis for the high usability of the devices and offers a high degree of end-to-end ease of use. For example: The large control panels provide easy access to all basic settings and touch navigation for a pleasant and effective user experience. The panel can be fully customised with all tools and apps a specific user most frequently needs. Further, the on all devices preinstalled MarketPlace gives access to a wide range of cloud offerings.
The BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand further shows that Konica Minolta’s MFPs are able to deliver repeatable high-quality printing results: For this award, BLI analysed colour consistency for well over 20 years and the last five years of results have been included in this evaluation. Technicians print IT8 colour charts at specific test points throughout a device’s reliability test, which are then measured using Xrite i1Profiler software together with the i1Pro2 spectrophotometer/iO table combination. “This award is an acknowledgement of the dedication and continuous effort our product teams put into the development of our devices. This award truly motivates us to even further improve our products for our customers”, Florian Loske says.
