Buyers Lab, the global provider of information and testing services to the digital imaging industry, has announced that the winner of its most coveted award - “MFP Line of the Year” – is Konica Minolta.
The “Line of the Year” award is given once a year to the OEM whose product line is determined to be the best overall in its category, based on the cumulative test results of all models tested in a rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. Reliability, image quality, productivity, ease of use, scanning, a host of connectivity attributes and overall value are amongst the many deciding factors taken into consideration, as is the extent of the product line and its ability to provide quality products suitable to a broad spectrum of customer needs.
According to Andrew Griffith, product manager for office products at Bidvest company, Konica Minolta South Africa, Konica Minolta has won more MFP “Picks” than any other vendor over the past year. The company has been awarded with six “Picks” for its business colour products, earning awards in almost every speed range, from 22 to 65 ppm.
“Each model tested proved extremely reliable and offered strong productivity, good duplex copy and print, exceptional image quality and high marks for both business graphics and photographic images,” he explains. “Our monochrome models also received “Picks” in virtually every speed range in monochrome from 22 ppm to 75 ppm, with six currently available monochrome “Pick” winners showing exceptional reliability and very good to excellent print productivity for producing sets of single- and double-sided documents.”
Both types of models were commended on competitive pricing, ease of use and comprehensive security measures, including standard hard drive overwriting.
“It is a great honour for Konica Minolta to have received this prestigious award from a leading industry voice such as BLI,” says Griffith. “The BLI Line of the Year award highlights our success and commitment to delivering industry-leading products that address and surpass the requirements of our customers of all sizes. As we move into in the new year, Konica Minolta remains committed to its global mission of ensuring that customers can count on us to meet all of their digital printing needs.”
