New Konica Minolta Campaign Expands Awareness for bizhub Brand
Konica Minolta, Cronin and Company Launch New Advertising Campaign
Ramsey, N.J. and Glastonbury, Conn. - June 29, 2010 - Cronin and Company, a full-service marketing communications agency, has launched a new advertising campaign for Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) to continue to build awareness and momentum for their award-winning line of bizhub® color multifunctional products (MFPs - print, copy, fax, and scan all in one system) . The campaign features two 30-second television spots that will air on national networks including CBS Sports' coverage of the PGA Tour.
Office business solutions are changing every day and Konica Minolta is staying ahead of the curve," said Steve Wolfberg, Partner, President, and Chief Creative Officer for Cronin. "These spots demonstrate that in a fun, memorable and engaging way."
In the first spot, entitled "Back in the Day," a "Rookie" employee is getting ready for a meeting. He starts to get heckled by more senior employees who talk about how things were done, "back in the day" prior to Konica Minolta technologies being installed. The second spot, "When I was Your Age" features the same "Rookie" from the first campaign. He is printing a presentation when several other employees walk over and start talking about other business solutions they used when they were his age (i.e. fax machines, floppy discs, scanners) and how easy life has become now that only one machine is needed.
"Our newest ad campaign communicates - in a clever, memorable way - how professionals can quickly learn the value of Konica Minolta's award-winning products and services," said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "We are confident these TV spots will effectively deliver the message that our customers can count on Konica Minolta for all their digital imaging needs."
