Konica Minolta announced the debut of its cloud-enabled bizhub multi-function printers (MFP). The models include special offers for licensing Dispatcher ScanTrip Cloud, a simple and efficient way to digitize documents that can enable small- to medium-size businesses to advance their digital transformation.
These newly available Konica Minolta MFPs with Dispatcher ScanTrip Cloud offer solutions to customers who use any of a wide variety of cloud connectors including Box, DropBox Business, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Email and more. ScanTrip Cloud provides a zero-footprint, true cloud scanning solution that provides simple but powerful customized scan workflows and direct integrations to most cloud services that clients use today, helping them to work faster and more efficiently.
“The combination of Konica Minolta’s MFPs with upgraded cloud, security and enhanced functionality and the Dispatcher ScanTrip Cloud solution provides customers with a unique set of competitive features and functions that meet today’s market and business demands,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Portfolio Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “Our advanced MFPs provide one of the industry’s strongest cloud offerings for scan and print management when paired with Dispatcher Paragon Cloud or any other Konica Minolta cloud-based print management solutions such as an Identity Provider (IdP) user Login for Azure AD and IdP Login for Google, which are all available on the Konica Minolta Marketplace. Plus, these cloud-enabled MFPs are versatile and highly intuitive to use.”
Konica Minolta’s cloud-enabled MFPs also offer Upland InterFAX, a cloud fax solution that can eliminate fax servers, fax boards and other standalone device costs. In addition, customers can eliminate expensive and unprotected analog phone lines. This digital solution for data security and encryption provides peace of mind, while flat-rate pricing for inbound and/or outbound faxing makes it a simple and affordable add on to the cloud-enabled MFP.
While the new MFPs are targeted to smaller and medium-size businesses in a variety of verticals, they are also scalable to more advanced solutions, allowing users to:
- Take advantage of a true cloud solution with direct Scan-to-Cloud capabilities
- Use multiple connectors for direct integrations to all the cloud services they use for their business
- Rename files, create custom workflows, intelligently route files and more
- Access standard document processing capabilities, including integrated, dynamic meta-data forms and OCR processing.
- Digitize documents simply and quickly for efficient processes
- Self-install ScanTrip Cloud, a zero-footprint solution (no on-premises infrastructure is required outside of the MFP device)
- Include flexible licensing and integration with a leasing agreement
To add more power to devices, pair the new bizhub MFPs with other cloud-based offerings such as Konica Minolta’s Dispatcher Paragon Cloud. Secure document management can help customers harness the power of the cloud to eliminate IT costs, reduce overall print services and fax costs and improve document security.
“Cloud Services, flexibility and seamless connectivity are must-haves for today’s smaller businesses,” continued Pagliarello. “The businesses that embrace digital transformation benefit in many ways, with increased satisfaction for their customers’ experiences, improved business decision making, enhanced process efficiencies and more ability to be agile and innovate as needs change.”
The ScanTrip Cloud bundle offer is available with all Konica Minolta bizhub MFPs sold through both its direct and dealer channels, with special offers for each that can be extended for longer than the offer term.
