  • Data is the raw material that powers successful businesses. Data-driven organizations are investing in big data and data analytics to get the visibility they need to make smart decisions based on facts instead of opinion and guesswork. From doctors using data to accurately diagnose diseases, to credit card companies using big data to prevent fraudulent transactions, data is rapidly transforming what’s possible across many different industries.

    Konica Minolta Participates In ‘Hope Tree’ Drive

    Oldsmar Office Collects Gifts For Foster Children In Need

    , South Region Engagement Team Manager

    In order for companies to be sustainable in the times ahead, they will have to contribute to the resolution of social challenges while continuing to grow. A great place to start is right at home. Larger companies with the capacity to give back and support their local community’s well-being find reward in helping those in need. Commitment to the community can also have a positive impact on both local consumers and businesses, encouraging interest in working together and attracting new talent to the organization. (more…)

    Riding for Those Who Can’t: The Ride for Jillian and Rolling Thunder

    The Industry Comes Together In A Unique Way To Support Multiple Causes

    , Marketing Manager

    The ride of life is already a daunting and challenging task in itself; therefore, no one should have to endure it alone. The power of  a community formed by people willing to make a positive impact and lessening the burden on others cannot be properly valued. Life may be good at times and it may be bad at times, but because of people and organizations like The Jillian Fund, life is ultimately defined as beautiful. (more…)

    How Giving Back Helps You Move Forward

    Konica Minolta Raised $10M For Charities In FY18

    , Manager, Corporate Events & Partnerships

    I didn’t want to open a blog post with an Oprah Winfrey quote, but she seems to really know what she’s talking about: “To move forward, you have to give back.”

    I think that we all have a responsibility as individuals, and as corporations, to give back. Giving back comes in many forms. For some, it’s donating their time. For others, it’s donating their money. For me, it’s a combination of volunteer work, supporting small businesses and collecting hotel toiletries when I travel to donate to homeless shelters. It’s from giving back that we really see the world in a different light, and, as Oprah says, we move forward. (more…)

    Winning BLI PaceSetter Vertical Awards – Team Collaboration At Its Finest

    , Vice President, Solutions and Vertical Market Business Development

    When an award is won, there are always individuals who are not in the forefront but provide the necessary support for the win to occur. For example, in order for a Super Bowl MVP to be named, the entire team needs to be in sync with one another; if the quarterback wins the award (which is most often the case) the offensive line has to block and receivers have to catch the ball. A movie cannot win an Oscar for best picture without a team of talented actors, writers, directors, cinematographers and a marketing team. And, Konica Minolta Business Solutions could not have been awarded the recent Buyers Laboratory Inc (BLI) PaceSetter Award For The Legal Vertical without the support of many individuals. (more…)

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) On Innovating With Konica Minolta

    , Global Sales Lead, Strategic Partnerships & Business Development at HP Enterprise

    Following #HPEDiscover a few weeks ago, the biggest technology event for Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and our partners, I wanted to share the following story regarding one of the best and most innovative OEM solutions and customers I have had the pleasure and opportunity to work with, Konica Minolta.

    In 2015 the HPE OEM Global Business Unit, led by Phil Cutrone and supported by Allan Mugu, identified a potential net new OEM opportunity that proposed a solution which would be first to market and revolutionize the Multi-Function Printer (MFP) market. Transforming the use of the 1m x 1m space, currently used for just print services, into a Hybrid IT edge enabled device for the connected workplace of the future. (more…)

    In 2016, I was selected as a finalist for the Ben Hogan Award. That was my junior year at the University of Texas. I won six college tournaments and only finished outside the top 10 once during the season. Needless to say, it was a breakout year. Looking back, it’s even more eye opening than when I first accomplished it. (more…)

I really couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this recognition because it truly reflects the drive we feel internally with our push towards innovation, corporate growth, and excellence within our own organizational best practices.

    Change is in the Air: Transformation Underway

    Konica Minolta has always been a brand with transformation and change as part of its DNA, ingrained in the company culture. From having a Minolta camera on the first American manned shuttle that went into space in 1962, to releasing the world’s first 35 mm camera with auto focus in 1977, we have had many world firsts. As our CEO Shoei Yamana mentioned in a recent interview with the Financial Times, innovation at Konica Minolta has historically been focused on ‘over engineering’ our products. In times of stability, such product innovations absolutely have their place. However, today our traditional market place has shrunk dramatically. For Konica Minolta to retain market relevancy, we have to shift our focus to customer value. It is definitely a very different focus to “how can we make our products better.” And so, over the last four years, Konica Minolta’s innovative journey has been accelerating like never before. With the establishment of our Business Innovation Centers, expansion of our R&D facilities globally, and our acquisitions, Konica Minolta is closer than ever to our clients. All this is supporting Konica Minolta’s transformation into a leading edge IT Services business. (more…)

    Just 26 days into the New Year, Konica Minolta made an unprecedented announcement: For the eleventh consecutive year, we were named Number One in Customer Loyalty in the 2018 Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index in the “MFP Copier” category. Eleven years in a row. What a way to begin a new year.

    But what does this mean? And what are we doing so successfully to earn this amazing distinction? (more…)
