Ramsey, NJ (November 16, 2021) – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), along with its IT Services Division All Covered (All Covered), today announced its collaboration with Access Control Devices, Inc. (ACDI), a leading Channel Intelligence Partner. Through the technology partnership formed by FORZA, All Covered’s ERP solution, the company has integrated KPAX Fleet Management software, distributed by ACDI, into its ERP platform, built on SAP Business One.
Offered exclusively through ACDI, with whom Konica Minolta was already partnered for use of the Papercut solution, KPAX offers a centralized fleet management solution for multi-brand office printing and copying hardware. The solution provides access to MFP device information regardless of the number of sites, the number of customers or the number of machines.
Based on its long-standing relationship, FORZA identified ACDI’s further potential to help it evolve through innovation to support what dealers want from a print management standpoint with KPAX. By partnering with ACDI, FORZA integrates KPAX into its ERP system for customer billing. KPAX optimizes the management of MPS programs to reduce fleet operating costs, improve service quality and develop new revenue opportunities. As a result, FORZA customers have seen the ability to streamline and automate their invoicing.
“KPAX Software’s vast industry experience complements our offerings and ensures customer satisfaction. They truly value the same high-level of technical support and service for our customers that we strive to provide,” said Drew Cataldo, Vice President, Business Development, All Covered. “With all our partners, our goal is to provide the best service to our dealers and deliver what they need to succeed. We look forward to expanding on the solid foundation of collaboration we’ve established and adding functionality to the integration as defined by their needs.”
An all-inclusive ERP offering, FORZA streamlines all business processes onto one platform, providing companies with an all-inclusive ERP system to manage current infrastructure and business processes while enabling growth from increasing sales to delivering products to customers.
FORZA and KPAX have already teamed up with a number of clients, both parties making resources available to support some really tight turnaround demands. When a new dealership opened and needed to get up and running quickly, the companies responded immediately, doing everything possible to take care of everything the dealer needed. Feedback received by FORZA has been extremely positive; clients are confident in the partnership and happy with the results using KPAX software.
“Our success in partnering with All Covered and FORZA stems from the alignment of innovation and culture across both organizations, and how united we are in our collective goal to add value to the industry,” said David Brown, Manager, KPAX Business Services. “We endeavor to find the best of the best solutions to be able to do that, and All Covered was the perfect fit for our solution.”
