Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced that BERTL Inc. (BERTL) has awarded multiple Fall 2011 BERTL's Best Awards to Konica Minolta, including the following:
• Best Production Line of the Year - bizhub PRESS C8000, bizhub PRESS C7000, bizhub PRO 1200
• Best Professional MFP Security Service – Konica Minolta bizhub SECURE
Since 1995, the "BERTL's Best" Award recognizes the best device, software and product lines in the digital imaging marketplace that were launched during the year. The categories are based on desktop, workgroup, departmental and production work environments. BERTL's analysts review them to identify the select group of devices and software that stand apart from the others. Keeping with the times and the demands of its end users BERTL left behind the simple speed and feed productivity, artificial reliability tests and theoretical SRP pricing lists and focused on the user and the business dynamics when putting together the "Best of the Best."
"In the Fall 2011 voting session, BERTL’s expert analysts were tremendously impressed with how Konica Minolta’s production print systems performed during testing and the overall superiority of the company’s security offerings,” said Art Wynne, President, BERTL Inc. "The bizhub PRESS series continues to impress us, earning Konica Minolta the Best Production Line of the Year distinction and with the introduction of bizhub SECURE, the company has further strengthened its security offerings to be among the best in the industry."
This is the fourth time in 2011 that Konica Minolta has received accolades from BERTL on behalf of their award-winning production print portfolio. Earlier this year, BERTL awarded multiple Spring 2011 BERTL's Best Awards to Konica Minolta, including the “Best Color Production System” for the bizhub PRESS C8000; “Best Color Light Production System” for the bizhub PRESS C7000; and “Best Monochrome Production System” for the bizhub PRO 1200.
"The BERTL's Best awards are a validation to Konica Minolta’s ongoing innovation and market-leading technologies, and earning these most recent awards highlights how our customers can count on Konica Minolta for all their document management needs,” said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "We will continue to respond to the demands of our customers as driving factors for advancing our products, solutions and services so that we are always meeting superior testing standards and earning these important industry accolades."
