In support of the modern workplace, where office work is becoming increasingly independent of both time restrictions and location, Konica Minolta South Africa, a division of Bidvest Office (Pty) Ltd, has introduced its new multifunctional A3 colour systems, the bizhub C227 and bizhub C287, specifically designed to meet the business requirements and work process needs of futuristic organisations with a focus on mobility and usability.

In today’s world, workspaces need to provide multiple channels and options to transfer print jobs to in-house digital printing devices. Employees require more flexibility to allow printing anytime, anywhere and from any mobile device. Konica Minolta’s multifunctional colour systems series meets those demands by providing functions such as integrated WiFi access, intuitive and individualised dashboards and the latest interface technologies. The new bizhub C227 and bizhub C287 office systems are fitted out with a 7-inch touch screen panel with an embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) for Android devices and Bluetooth Low Energy for iOS devices. These functionalities allow the user to automatically connect the offices systems to their tablet or smartphone and provide the convenience of touch-to-print as well as touch-to-scan functionality.

“The new multifunctional colour system series offers smart new features, simplifying the everyday working life of employees and companies,” comments Greg Griffith, product manager: business solutions at Konica Minolta South Africa. “This extension of Konica Minolta’s bizhub line creates an even more tailored response to our customers’ needs.”

Beyond the mobility aspects, the bizhub C227 and bizhub C287 are operational multi-talents and are more than just standard multifunctional equipment. Both printer systems impress with high productivity, high capacity and versatile finishing capabilities. With a maximum paper size of A3 format and a printing speed of 22 ppm for the bizhub C227 (colour and black & white) and 28 ppm for the C287, both printing devices handle all routine print jobs in today’s business world. To support individual needs, the printing systems also offer an integrated IWS and web browser that enables the customisation of the multifunctional printer panel.

Sustainable printing and cost efficiency

The A3 multifunctional printers offer a new level of eco-friendliness. Thanks to the compact, redesigned engine that leads to a 15% weight reduction, the minimum power consumption and various hardware improvements provide a reduced carbon footprint by the devices. Besides protecting the environment, clients also reduce energy costs and print more cost-efficiently.
