  • Konica Minolta partners up with FileBound

    A partnership between Konica Minolta Australia and document management solutions supplier, FileBound, is offering new levels of automation and streamlined workflow to the print technology company’s document management customers.

    The new deal sees FileBound, which is touted as one of the leading providers document management solutions locally, provide automation for a number of manual processes within Konica Minolta’s existing document management service.

    According to Chris Goult (pictured), head of Product Marketing at Konica Minolta Australia, the partnership is in line with Konica Minolta’s core strategy to boost its integrated software services, combining print management and document workflow software solutions.

    “Konica Minolta’s partnership with FileBound is an important step in providing our customers with sophisticated integrated business solutions and helping them optimize their MFD usage,” says Goult. “Content management and workflow software solutions are the future of business because they maximise productivity and efficiency.

    “Working together, Konica Minolta and FileBound will allow customers to file, store, share, retrieve, secure, archive and audit all critical documents.  Automating and streamlining essential processes is not reserved for large corporations – it is becoming the norm for businesses of all sizes,” he says.

    According to Goult, smaller to medium sized businesses (SMEs) have historically invested in hardware more than in solutions for workflow, considering it an area for large IT departments. However, SMEs are now becoming more aware of the full range of benefits and cost savings that can be delivered with a cost effective document management solution like FileBound.

    “In the long term companies benefit most from employing MFDs to automate the capture of information, and then integrating the capture of this information with better electronic content management across the company.  Electronic content management and optimized document management is the way of the future for business,” he says.

    Konica Minolta Australia is just one of several print technology companies, including Ricoh Australia and Fuji Xerox Australia, which are working to broaden their document management business in the local market.
