Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) announces that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) has named Konica Minolta 2013 "Line of the Year" award winner in the A3/Ledger MFP segment. Winning BLI’s most coveted award for the third consecutive year, Konica Minolta’s award-winning line of bizhub Color and Monochrome Multifunctional Products (MFPs - print, copy, fax, and scan all in one system) also earned three additional “Pick” awards for the bizhub C364, C454 and C554 A3 Color MFPs.
Awarded annually to the OEM whose product line is determined to be the best overall in its category, the “Line of the Year” Award is based on the cumulative test results of all models tested in BLI's rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. By assessing reliability, image quality, ease of use, productivity and a range of other criteria, the tests reveal the products that deliver customers the best value and most trouble-free performance. Also considered is the breadth of the vendor's line and the vendor's ability to provide quality products suitable to a broad spectrum of customer needs, from low-volume to high-volume.
“The Konica Minolta bizhub family proves exemplary year after year,” says George Mikolay, senior product editor, A3/Copier MFPs. “Earning more ‘Pick’ awards than any other vendor for individual A3 MFPs, Konica Minolta’s reliability throughout its line is a true differentiator.”
“Konica Minolta is pleased to be recognized for this prestigious award for the third consecutive year, and we remain committed to strengthening the bizhub product line even further in 2013,” says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “Customers can continue to count on Konica Minolta for the award-winning technology and document management solutions they expect from us to remain productive and competitive.”
