• Konica Minolta bizhub i-Series wins 12 BLI Awards

        • Konica Minolta is proud to announce that it has received 12 Buyers Lab (BLI) Awards from Keypoint Intelligence, an independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software, and services. All devices are from Konica Minolta’s new bizhub i-Series.  

          In addition to 10 BLI 2021 Pick Awards for its bizhub A3 MFPs, Konica Minolta secured the BLI 2021 A3 Line of The Year Award. Based on long-term comprehensive testing, Konica Minolta was further acknowledged with the BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award.  

          Twelve Konica Minolta bizhub A3 MPFs received the Highly Recommended overall rating for outstanding performance in Keypoint Intelligence lab testing and ten of those models earned Pick Awards in their respective segments: bizhub C250i, C300i, C450i, C550i, C650i, 300i, 360i, 450i, 550i and 750i. This additionally earned Konica Minolta the ‘BLI 2021 A3 Line of the Year’ award.

          Malcolm Smith, Product Manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd said, “We are very proud to receive these renowned awards for our A3 MFP devices. They also come at a critical point in terms of the evolution of our MFP portfolio, as these devices are from our latest generation of bizhub i-Series MFP devices. With smart MFPs like the bizhub i-Series we continue to strengthen our position as a reliable partner for our customers in intelligent office printing. For every device, we develop and service we create, we always put our customer’s needs and routines in the centre.”

          The BLI 2021-2023 Most Colour Consistent A3 Brand Award further shows that Konica Minolta’s MFPs can deliver repeatable high-quality printing results. For this award, BLI analysed colour consistency for well over 20 years and the last five years of results have been included in this evaluation. Technicians print IT8 colour charts at specific test points throughout a device’s reliability test, which are then measured using Xrite i1Profiler software together with the i1Pro2 spectrophotometer/iO table combination. 

          Malcolm added, “this award is an acknowledgement of the dedication and continuous effort our product teams put into the development of our devices. This award truly motivates us to even further improve our products for our customers.”
