The Konica Minolta bizhub® i-Series — Transforming the SMB Workplace

Posted by Blue Technologies Ohio on Jul 16, 2020 8:15:00 AM

There is a lot of emphasis on digital transformation among today’s small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that are looking for a competitive edge.

That’s because affordable transformative technologies like multi-function devices (MFPs) can contribute to better workplace efficiencies, more streamlined workflows, and enhanced connectivity.

And the trend is on the rise, with nearly half of SMBs planning to find ways to adapt and transform for a digital future. Part of that planning includes eliminating inefficient workflows and introducing automated digital processes that help SMBs do things faster, less expensively, and more efficiently.

Transforming from a paper-centric to digital workflow includes ensuring that your MFP is connected to your current digital workstreams, including databases, cloud services, content and document management systems, and email.

With a fully functional MFP, you can leverage the power of internet connectivity and software integration to help move your business toward a digital future in a way that fits perfectly with your current digital transformation strategy.

And because digital transformation is more than just input, you’ll want a smart machine that can deliver the right level of security to keep your core business systems and networks safe from threats. This includes finding an MFD that allows administrators to provide permissions for access, track usage, and remain in compliance with data privacy regulations.

Fortunately, Konica Minolta, a leader in office technology, has created the bizhub® i-series line of MFDs to help small businesses tackle the fine art of transformation.

Put the Konica Minolta bizhub® i-Series to Work for Your Business

Konica Minolta’s bizhub® i-Series line of MFDs leads with the highest quality print and finishing, with reliability and features that can satisfy the business needs of companies in any industry.

The series provides users smart technology and simple-to-use controls to make productivity and efficiency a priority, with added security for businesses that handle sensitive data or are concerned with regulatory compliance.

A quick look at the i-Series uncovers the following advantages:

1. High Quality Performance for Enhanced Workflows

The bizhub® i-Series has a CPU that is four times faster than its predecessors for increased speed and efficiency.

The native Konica Minolta Dispatcher software included with each model extends the printers’ capabilities to include print management and workflow automation as well as document processing control and integration with cloud-based apps such as Microsoft OneDrive, DropBox, SharePoint, and Google Drive, among others.

3. Eco-friendly Efficiency to Boost Corporate Responsibility

Konica Minolta has created a toner technology that guarantees the highest quality output. In addition, this innovative toner uses biomass as a key ingredient, making it exceptionally environmentally friendly, as it also reduces the amount of energy used by the printers.

In fact, the bizhub® i-Series is Energy Star rated and comes with an Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Gold Rating.

4. Intuitive UX

Making it easy for staff to leverage new technology is important, and Konica Minolta makes it simple with the i-Series’ 10.1-inch touchscreen panel that makes accessing, using, and configuring the machine intuitive, since it works just like a smartphone or tablet.

The panel also comes with voice control and LED status indicators to improve accessibility for all staff, including those with visual impairments.

5. Better Security for Peace of Mind

The Konica Minolta bizhub® group of MFDs comes with the latest security features, including compliance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and ISO 15408 certification (HCD-PP). There are optional security features that include Bizhub SECURE to protect the printer’s memory, SECURE Platinum to secure network settings, SECURE Notifier App to ensure settings are correct and unchanged, and Bitdefender Antivirus to scan all data that is sent and received.

A further option is a card reader that limits access to those with authorization through an authenticated ID card.
