    For your sales team, the Internet can be a double-edged sword. The connection between the customer and your sales team is now stronger than ever, but so is the potential for mismanaging the relationship.

    The right online collaboration software can spell the difference. With more sales calls done virtually instead of face to face, online collaboration – particularly using CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software – is the new status quo for sales teams and clients to reach a consensus.

    History was made over the weekend at the 2015 Masters as Jordan Spieth became the second-youngest player to wear the green jacket, behind only Tiger Woods’ effort in 1997. The 21-year-old set several records during his command of the PGA tournament. He became only the fifth person to lead the Masters from start to finish. His 28th birdie on the 15th hole made him the first player to reach 19-under-par at Augusta. His halfway total of 14-under-par broke a 39-year-old record and his 16-under for 54 holes was also a course record. This kid’s extraordinary accomplishments caught the eye of the country and the world.

    FehertyDavid Feherty has a potty mouth.

    But that didn’t stop the crowd at Day 2 of Konica Minolta’s Art of Disruption dealer meeting from laughing and cheering the outspoken Golf Channel host’s keynote address.

    Feherty was introduced by Rick Taylor, President and COO, to help him announce a multi-year marketing relationship. Konica Minolta is now designated the “Official Multifunction Printers of the PGA TOUR,” along with its ongoing exclusive sponsorship of the popular Konica Minolta Bizhub SwingVision camera in PGA TOUR telecasts.

    Once the “business” was out of the way, Feherty got down to spinning yarns about past adventures on the PGA TOUR and present adventures as a writer and broadcaster with CBS Sports and Golf Channel, all peppered with his trademark no-holds-barred commentary.

    He wrapped up his remarks with a request to the audience to support our soldiers and remember their sacrifices. As a co-founder of Troops First Foundation, Feherty is passionate about the non-profit’s work to create programs and events designed for Wounded Warriors and their families.

    Well played, Mr. Feherty.

    , Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning

    internsThis summer, 52 bright and energetic young adults got a taste of corporate America interning at Konica Minolta offices around the country.

    Their roles were varied: sales, marketing, customer service, systems engineering and IT. All came ready to work, rolling up their sleeves and jumping right in to their respective departments. We believe the internship program was a huge success, not just for the students who got to experience various aspects of our company and corporate life, but also for us. (more…)
