Konica Minolta was recently named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Print in the Distributed Workforce 2022 Vendor Assessment (doc #US48596221, January 2022). According to the report, “Konica Minolta’s approach to providing for a more distributed workforce begins with a mindset that “work is not where you are, but work is what you get done.” Businesses need technology that’s right for them with the service behind it to support the organization.”
The report notes, “This IDC MarketScape assesses the strategies and capabilities of the major office printing vendors to support an increasingly distributed workforce on a worldwide basis. The concept of a distributed workforce is not new, but its expansion caused by the ripple effect of the COVID-19 global pandemic is a significant development on how work will be conducted in the future. During the pandemic, organizations were forced to collectively operate remotely, mostly in home offices, while aiming to demonstrate no decline in productivity.”
“We are proud to be named a ‘Leader’ bythe IDC MarketScape. Key to Konica Minolta’s success is our ability to help businesses succeed with digital transformation to meet the challenges of the pandemic and beyond. Konica Minolta’s foresight pre-empted the transformations in the world of work that have subsequently been accelerated by Covid-19,” says Olaf Lorenz, Head of International Marketing Division, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.
The IDC MarketScape observed that, “Konica Minolta demonstrates holistic thinking in its go-to-market strategy that is more than just a focus on print. It has been transforming its business from a print/copy provider to a digital services supplier.”
