Work is not where you are. Work is what you get done. We firmly believe that at Konica Minolta. And the statistics back us up. By the year 2020:
We will offer that connectivity. Building on our core set of smart office solutions, we will reshape and revolutionize the workplace by integrating technology that allows workers to be more productive, more efficient and more collaborative.
We’ve already started.
Through All Covered, Konica Minolta’s IT Services division, we are blending physical and virtual work environments via secure cloud hosting that powers the applications, file-sharing and mobility requirements essential to running a modern workplace. We also offer FileAssist,™ Konica Minolta’s file storage and collaborative solution fully managed and hosted in the All Covered cloud, enables information sharing in a secure environment.
Through our product portfolio, our technology fits perfectly with the Workplace of the Future. Our bizhub™ portfolio of multifunction printers features mobile connectivity that supports a wide range of devices, including smartphones and tablets that are NFC (near field communication) capable, enabling print-on-the-go efficiency.
Our integration with Microsoft SharePoint allows teams to easily share information both inside and outside an organization. Our Konica Minolta bizhub technology platform allows users to send documents directly from the multifunction printer panel to any SharePoint destination, providing virtually unlimited document collaboration.
Our Enterprise Content Management (ECM) practice is tailored to fit any client’s needs to transform their operations for greater efficiency by reducing paper-based processes, eliminating bottlenecks with unstructured information and automating workflows.
But there is so much more. Under the Workplace of the Future, we offer a broad scope of additional technology to facilitate people working smarter and more effectively.
We have recently launched:
The physical workplace is changing, too. Acres of walled cubicles are giving way to war rooms housing interdepartmental teams working together in one space for the duration of a project. Workspaces are becoming smaller as desktops move to the cloud, negating the need for large desks. Open collaboration spaces beckon individuals to pull up a chair to talk through tactics. We are literally thinking and working outside the box.
The old adage is true: The future is now. Companies have to do more with less. A burgeoning young workforce is completely mobile and internet connected. Remote workers and traveling employees demand the ability to work from anywhere at any time. No one is chained to a desk anymore.
The smart and connected office industry is a large and fast-growing market, valued at $26B today and expected to grow to $43B by 2020. That magic year!
We have a clear vision of what the future is. We are positioned to reshape it because of our investment in our own Workplace of the Future technology. Through this technology, we will help our clients envision and create their own workplace of the future.
