With this new integration developed jointly with Open Text, our customers can significantly improve their faxing operations without the time and costs associated with purchasing an additional solution to manage heavy fax environments
Ramsey, NJ (Vocus) October 11, 2010
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, today announces the connectivity of Konica Minolta’s bizhub® Office Multifunctional Products (MFPs - print, copy, fax, and scan all in one system) with the Open Text Fax Appliance, FaxPress Edition. An optional solution developed jointly with Open Text, the preeminent provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software and the market leader in fax servers, connectivity to bizhub Office MFPs is now a built-in feature of the Fax Appliance and delivers improved fax management capabilities to customers including those in the healthcare industry.
Targeted at new or existing bizhub MFP customers who are also users of Open Text Fax Appliance, FaxPress Edition, the connectivity offers the convenience of using the MFP as a scanning on-ramp to their Fax Appliance for all outbound faxing. Open Text Fax Appliances save customers the cost of having a standalone fax machine or a fax board within their MFPs requiring a dedicated fax line. In addition to improving overall fax functionality across an organization, enabling enhanced cost control measures through resource consolidation, and improving document security, connectivity to the Fax Appliance is the ideal solution for Konica Minolta customers looking for an affordable, robust fax solution.
"With this new integration developed jointly with Open Text, our customers can significantly improve their faxing operations without the time and costs associated with purchasing an additional solution to manage heavy fax environments," said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. "By partnering with Open Text, we have been able to focus on optimizing a specific feature of our bizhub Office Systems to address the concerns of a specific customer audience. This offering is further proof of why customers can count on Konica Minolta for all their digital imaging and electronic document management needs."
Since the Open Text Fax Appliance retains all inbound scans and provides Email notifications to recipients, auditing concerns are automatically addressed by managing fax capabilities through the Konica Minolta bizhub Office Systems. Additionally, an integrated scanning on-ramp establishes a virtual FaxPress tab on the Konica Minolta MFP's control panel, which provides users with the convenience of sending their outbound fax documents directly from the device itself.
"This connectivity with the Open Text Fax Appliance, FaxPress Edition will provide a greater degree of accessibility and functionality to the Konica Minolta customer base," said Matthew Brine, Vice President, Fax and Document Distribution, Open Text. "With an industry-leading position in the digital imaging marketplace, this partnership allows Konica Minolta customers to improve their overall productivity and workflow with ease.”
