Konica Minolta strengthens partnership with EveryonePrint
Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd is expanding its solutions portfolio with the addition of EveryonePrint’s Hybrid Cloud Platform (HCP). The innovative cloud based infrastructure solution will be available to customers and channel partners in the UK and Ireland immediately.
EveryonePrint HCP is an all in one print infrastructure solution designed for organisations looking to reduce the IT burden and cost effectively realise all of the benefits of a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for print infrastructure. By utilising cloud technology, organisations can reduce the cost and complexity associated with a traditional print environment. By eliminating print servers, Windows server licenses and the requirement to run clients on workstations, customers will benefit from significantly lower printing costs.
The solution offers users a true single driver solution making it possible for everyone to print to all devices using the same generic print driver. For added convenience, a bEST certified App is available for secure release of print jobs from any Konica Minolta bizhub control panel.
‘EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform enables users to easily connect to the print infrastructure without needing IT support, significantly reduces print costs and eliminates the need to purchase, deploy and manage print servers. Furthermore, HCP includes all the features and benefits from EveryonePrint’s widely adopted mobile printing solution which enables printing from any mobile device,’ said Thomas Lastrup, vice president, Global Sales at EveryonePrint.
Steve Doust, director of Document Services at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd said this partnership will not only augment the company's digital offering but will also serve its greater vision of transforming customers’ digital and cultural futures. ‘While organisations are embracing cloud solutions to fuel business growth, many companies remain challenged to find the right hybrid cloud solutions that enable seamless migration to the cloud. EveryonePrint’s Hybrid Cloud Platform enables Konica Minolta customers to leverage their existing on-premise investments while providing a clear path to move to the cloud.’
