Bidvest company, Konica Minolta South Africa impressed visitors at Print Expo 2009 with the launch of its new bizhub 1200 PRO series, a high end production printing system delivering previously unseen quality and modularity as well as the introduction of its bizhub C6501, aimed at helping commercial print businesses to handle short-run, on-demand print jobs.
The company’s demonstrations of supporting software solutions, including PrintShop Mail, for creating and printing personalised documents, PrintShop Web, a web-to-print solution, its PlanetPress Suite for the easy creation and printing of variable content documents and EFI MicroPress, a high-performance raster-based digital document production system also drew much attention to the Konica Minolta South Africa stand.
Visitor numbers for Print Expo and co-locating shows Propak Africa, Food Pro and Pro-Plas Africa reached over 12,000 across the four days and included visitors from across South Africa, Botswana, Ghana, Lesotho, Namibia, Nigeria, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, DRC, Kenya, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Taiwan, China, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and others.
Says Nick Wilson, production printing consultant at Konica Minolta South Africa: "The Print Expo show served as a level platform for us to compete directly with our opposition, with a particular focus on our production level machines, and thus raised our brand profile. Potential clients were able to move directly from one supplier to the next and make informed decisions about the varying products without prejudice.
"Interest was varied but the resounding verdict from potential clients is that Konica Minolta South Africa can provide the quality products and added value services to compete on par with the traditional leaders in this market segment," he adds. "We believe that based on this positive change in market perception combined with our favourable hardware and per image cost, Konica Minolta South Africa can look forward to numerous sales in the future."
