Ramsey, NJ, July 27, 2016 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) announced today that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging products and solutions, has awarded two Konica Minolta’s Multifunction printers (MFPs) with Pick awards for the Summer 2016 season.

  • Konica Minolta bizhub® 227 – Outstanding 21- to 30-ppm A3 Monochrome MFP
  • Konica Minolta bizhub C308 - Outstanding 21- to 30-ppm A3 Color MFP

After their independent lab-based evaluation, BLI analysts selected the bizhub® 227 thank to its excellent reliability, robust feature set, high quality print output, outstanding value proposition and other attributes. The bizhub C308 was honored for its flawless reliability, comprehensive security measures, fast print speeds in multi-user environments, accurate and productive scanning and other strengths.

“We are proud of this accolade which reflects our unrelenting focus on our customers,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Business Intelligence Solutions and Product Planning, Konica Minolta. “As customer requirements evolve, we are committed to delivering the technology and services to meet their changing needs.”

“The Konica Minolta bizhub 227 impressively bridges the gap between compact A4 MFPs and traditional mid-volume A3 office MFPs,” said BLI Senior Editor George Mikolay. “With a low price and outstanding overall performance, the device is a high value-add for small- to mid-size workgroups.
