  • After 135 years in business, fourth-generation owner John Hummel had seen numerous advances in technology benefit his family’s company, Hummel Integrated Marketing Solutions. But he never could have predicted how revolutionary the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 UV inkjet press would be. “I had been operating my digital shop with toner-based digital presses from another vendor,” Hummel told us, “but became increasingly dissatisfied with both performance and pricing model. I’ve had my eye on the AccurioJet KM-1 since it first came to market and felt that the time was now right to make the switch to UV-curable inkjet.”

    Fueling Innovation With Diversity

    10 Tips To Create A More Inclusive Team Environment

    , Senior Vice President, Human Resources

    One of my favorite things to do during summer weekends is to go down the shore* to visit friends and share hysterical, mostly embarrassing memories, from long ago.  The stories never get old and, in fact, become a little better with time.  Hours spent with my friends are familiar, warm and easy – like being suspended in time.  They remind me of the slow, lazy days of summer when I was a kid and the biggest decision was a bomb pop or toasted almond.  My friends and I have so much in common – our age, values, education and earnings.  We like the same food, music, and many of the same activities.  Our visits are a nostalgic and comfortable time for everyone involved.

    Konica Minolta & All Covered – Synergy for the Win!

    , Manager, Government and Education Solutions

    Why Innovation Matters

    , National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    , National Sales Manager, Legal, All Covered

    “No pain, no gain.” We’ve all heard that phrase before and somehow has been instilled into our subconscious – that greater results come at the price of hard and even painful work. With new market drivers shaping the legal industry, followed by higher expectations on the delivery of legal services, hard work is not something that will ease up any time soon.  But, that doesn’t mean the challenges, both internal and external, need to make work even harder for you and your firm. So, what are your top pain points, and how can you tackle them? (more…)

    How Technology Is Affecting The Future Workforce

    Five Key Drivers Of Workforce Transformation

    , Assistant Manager for Marketing Communications

    I don’t know about you, but I’m not particularly keen on being replaced by a robot at work, or being reduced to a virtual avatar. Technology is an incredible enabler across our development as humans as a whole – opening up new and exciting opportunities across personal and professional playing fields. But it can also create uncertainty, and fear, if not packaged with the right information. (more…)

    Six Benefits Of Going Paperless

    Cut Paper, Cut Costs

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    If there is one thing that every company has in common, it’s paper and trying to keep track of it. Industry aside, construction companies building skyscrapers and medical providers servicing sick patients both deal with paper — and lots of it. The phrase “Going Paperless” doesn’t mean removing every single piece of paper from an organization nor does it mean that employees will become obsolete. It means pinpointing specific areas of the company that are paper-heavy, manually-driven, and time-consuming then finding a smarter way to execute the process. Streamlining typically involves an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution that uses workflow and automation to replace costly manual, paper-based processes which drain a company’s budget. This is the start of the company’s digital transformation which means the benefits of the streamlining can expand to other areas once you realize the benefits of making the processing changes.

    How To Minimize The Costs Behind Your IT Infrastructure Purchases

    What's Your True Total Cost Of Ownership?

    , Director of Technology Partner Management

    Do you know what you or your clients are spending on technology? Likely more than you think. Each year, organizations replace one out of every four computers that they own. And, they replace their servers and entire infrastructure behind it every five years. With peripherals like monitors, docking stations, and cables, the list can go on and on. See where I’m going here? It’s no surprise that when you are in the market for IT hardware, you want to find the lowest cost possible.  You talk to multiple vendors. You scour the web for the best price. You talk to your friends and co-workers in hopes of finding an industry insider that can provide the best deals. Everyone does this. But, do you ever notice any costs above and beyond your initial purchase? (more…)

    Bridging The Gap Between Automation And Innovation

    , Vice President, Global Client Services and Solutions

    Automation and Innovation. At first glance, these two words referenced in the same sentence could understandably be seen by some as a paradox. The irony is that one can create capacity for the other. The challenge lies in the inability of some businesses to leverage the newly-found free time created by automation into innovation. And that innovation comes in many forms; from more face time with clients to developing new products and business solutions. (more…)
