Scrap Metal Company Integrates Electronic Document Management System to Improve Productivity and Workflow Company-Wide

Ramsey, N.J. and Pittsburgh, Penn. - April 8, 2010 - Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, today announced that it will support AMG Resources Corporation in an initiative to become a paperless office with the implementation of PRISM DocRecord.  One of the largest scrap metal companies in the world, AMG Resources launched PRISM DocRecord in September 2009 to accompany its use of award-winning bizhub┬« MFPs from Konica Minolta with the goals of reducing excessive storage costs, improving document workflow across the organization, and enhancing overall productivity.

After reviewing the results of an internal ROI study, it was apparent that the company could not only save time and money by adopting an electronic document management system, but also more effectively manage company operations.  PRISM DocRecord has enabled AMG Resources to move approximately 28,000 paper files to the new electronic database and expects to eliminate nearly 60,000 paper files by the end of 2010. Selecting PRISM DocRecord was a logical solution given the company already operates on Konica Minolta bizhub MFPs, including the bizhub C550 and bizhub 361, and hardware integration was a strong selection component.  By integrating with existing company enterprise applications, PRISM DocRecord ensures that the history of access, changes and updates to documents is automatically tracked and recorded.

"Given our existing relationship with Konica Minolta and the level of quality consistently delivered by the current bizhub MFP products, it was a fairly easy decision to select them as our partner in rolling out this new initiative," said Dan Corrigan, Director of Information Technology at AMG Resources.  "As we evaluated competitive solutions, PRISM DocRecord emerged as the most natural fit within our current infrastructure, and the solution that would provide ease of integration and a more secure way of doing business.  Konica Minolta has made a tremendous impact on our way of doing business."
Using PRISM DocRecord, AMG Resources has also transitioned file exchange to the electronic document management system with external customers, plant managers and sales contacts.  Incoming faxes are sent directly to the electronic filing system and sorted according to barcodes that identify the locations of specific folders.  The company began hosting online training sessions to familiarize and integrate their network of external contacts with the new system to further streamline business workflow.
"We are pleased to be working with AMG Resources to support their transition to a paperless office and eliminate their heavy reliance on paper filing," said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc.  "PRISM DocRecord is a reliable and secure solution that will continue to grow with AMG Resources' business, and highlights the fact that customers can count on Konica Minolta to meet both their output and digital imaging solution needs to improve overall document workflow."
