- Invests over one million USD in the facility
True to the company’s motto ‘Giving Shapes to Ideas’, Konica Minolta opened the first Digital Imaging Square (DIS) in India. Grand inauguration of the demo facility located in its corporate office in Gurgaon (Cyber City) was attended by Junichi Arai, GM, CP Business Operations, Sales Headquarters, Tokyo; Takashi Abe, GM, CP Business Development Division, Sales Headquarters, Tokyo; Tadahiko Sumitani, MD, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India Pvt Ltd, Gurgaon and other dignitaries, business partners and PSPs. The main objective behind the opening of Digital Imaging Square (DIS) at the corporate office of Konica Minolta Business Solutions India is to showcase a broad range of readily available business document solutions and print production solutions to various companies of different sizes. Developed with an investment of US$ one million, DIS houses the latest production printers in colour as well as monochrome apart from other multi-function printers. A dedicated team of experts at DIS will help the customers to create their solutions using Konica Minolta machines.

Special zone

Speaking on the inaugural occasion, Tadahiko Sumitani said that DIS is not merely a showroom; this is a special zone equipped with complete solutions and machines to help Konica Minolta partners boost their business. He further mentioned, “India is one of the important markets for Konica Minolta and our objective is to continue our top positioning in the production printing segment and notch up at least 25 percent of market share in the office environment in the next two years. We can do it by sharpening our focus on partner centric activities and enable them to meet customer expectations. Since the start of our operation in September 2010, our focus has been on driving solutions.”

Added opportunities

The added advantage at DIS is that Konica Minolta partners can bring in their customers to showcase the solutions. Similarly, the end-customers who want to check the latest innovations in the field of IT can walk into DIS directly to get a feel of the various capabilities of Konica Minolta printing solutions. This demo facility is not only equipped with the arrays of machines but also the right solutions including software and finishing solutions.

Tadahiko Sumitani decisively mentioned that Konica Minolta is expecting to open few more DIS centres in other metro cities of India.
