EveryonePrint has signed a pan-European agreement with Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. The collaboration will see Konica Minolta expand its portfolio of cloudbased solutions to include EveryonePrint’s Hybrid Cloud Platform (HCP). EveryonePrint’s cloud-native print infrastructure solution will be available to customers across all European operating companies with immediate effect.
With this new partnership, Konica Minolta can provide customers considering a cloud-first strategy for printing with a flexible, secure and efficient solution to eliminate print servers, Windows server licenses, and significantly lower printing costs.
HCP, designed for Konica Minolta bizhub devices is a true cloud solution, designed to remove complexity, reduce the pressure on resources and lower support costs. It’s completely serverless and fully flexible; always on, always up to date and always secure. HCP supports zero trust network policies, provides full data encryption in transit and at rest, and offers built-in auditing functionality that enables organisations to proactively protect information, track documents, manage risk and achieve compliance.
“Customers can leverage their investment in Konica Minolta print hardware and achieve better agility through our innovative cloudbased managed print platform and customised app for bizhub devices,” said Tavs Dalaa, CEO, EveryonePrint. “Utilising Konica Minolta’s IWS platform, resellers can simply pre-configure the devices, connect to the customers’ existing IT infrastructure and deploy the application from the cloud – a process that takes minutes and doesn’t require specialist technicians to physically install software on the devices onsite.”
