Konica Minolta's Bidvest Business Technologies (BBT) combines consultancy, hardware and
software implementation and operation in order to (develop improvement) on the basis
of precise facts and figures and guarantee cost reductions and trouble-free processes.
Making printing infrastructure work efficiently.
Office technologies have advanced, users' needs have changed. Many current printing
environments are patchworks of printing, imaging and fax devices that aren't managed

management in order to lower document spend. The Bidvest Business Technologies (BBT)
concept focuses on five essential areas:
Right-sizing the document output fleet to actual business needs, providing optimal
business process and fleet support and establishing continuous optimisation - balanced
with minimal cost of ownership and environmental impact.
Analysing all business-relevant document flows in order to increase productivity,

tailor-made to meet your precise daily needs.
Offering different purchasing and leasing options as well as various contract models
and integrating existing contracts into a single transparent financial plan.
Designing and implementing IT and information security solutions, from user authentication
and data-safe hard disk handling of disposed devices to complex network security
Supporting a company’s sustainability goals by implementing the most environmentally
friendly document-related hardware and business workflows, and through the subsequent
monitoring and assessment of environmental performance throughout the lifecycle.
All improvements resulting from BBT Consult are based on defined consulting procedures
and powerful analysis tools allowing customers to understand every single step on
the way to a tailor-made solution.
