Bidvest Technologies

Technology Matrix

Easily compatible to users and IT environments thanks to Konica Minolta unified print technology

Emperon™ Controller

Konica Minolta’s proprietary Emperon™ print controller technology provides seamless integration and compatibility with most popular printing environments and operating systems. It offers versatile and powerful printing features to improve user productivity. The system delivers professional print output quality combined with ease of use.

Pays off to budget and green footprint by high quality and low environmental impact

Simitri® HD Toner

Konica Minolta’s proprietary Simitri® HD (High Definition) polymerised toner stands for outstanding image quality. It is also very eco-friendly, since it enables a lower fusing temperature and therefore reduces energy consumption. Thanks to its characteristics, Simitri supports a broader range of media and achieves more resistant output of higher durability.

Increase the scope of MFP functionality from basic to advanced depending on your needs

i-Option Technology

The Konica Minolta i-Option technology improves the productivity and usability of the MFP, offering for example OCR text searches for documents, native Barcode and Unicode font printing, or improving PDF document security with encryption. Individual i-Options can be activated by license key.

Keep productivity up by online device and consumable monitoring of the Konica Minolta service

CS Remote Care

CS Remote Care provides an interactive information exchange between MFPs and service management systems wherever high quality maintenance support is required. The remote connection relays all relevant system data in real time, advising the Konica Minolta service early on of routine maintenance or any other required intervention. It also ensures automated consumables delivery.
