Brother officially launches Konica Minolta products to NZ market under new partnership

 

Since being appointed as a New Zealand distributor for Konica Minolta in June, Brother International (NZ) Limited has officially launched their range of Konica Minolta A3 colour laser devices for the New Zealand market.

The new range of award-winning bizhub i-Series A3 multi-function devices will extend Brother’s existing line-up of business managed print solutions.  An extensive accessory line-up has also been confirmed, which will allow Brother to create bespoke device configurations to meet the diverse needs of New Zealand businesses.

“Here at Brother, we’ve been doing what we do best for almost 60 years and have since grown to be a leading provider of print and imaging solutions. It was only natural that we join forces with Konica Minolta to offer our customers an even greater range of printing solutions,” says Executive Chairman of Brother NZ, Graham Walshe.

“Now more than ever, we’re seeing a need for streamlined and effective online business processes and the importance of adapting to meet ever-changing demands. Our traditional experience in the office has changed vastly in the last year and we’ve had to quickly adapt to become more digitised, secure and streamlined in our connectivity,” he adds.

The bizhub i-Series range is a smart technology hub that fully embraces the way businesses are evolving and sharpens their competitive edge. The i-Series incorporates the best of design with high-quality performance, enhanced efficiency and seamless connectivity to improve productivity. 

Brothers’ ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability is complimented by the high-quality performance and innovation that the new bizhub i-Series delivers. The new fusing unit and low-temperature fixing toner help achieve lower energy consumption in operating and sleep modes. Environmental impact is reduced further through the new packaging design, as traditional cushioning material has been replaced with lighter air cushions, still ensuring safety during transport. Konica Minolta will also benefit from Brother’s recycling programme, ensuring that old Konica Minolta consumables and hardware components can also be recycled.

Backed by Brother’s comprehensive, local service and support network, including their 24/7 NZ-based helpdesk and nationwide support network, Brother will provide full coverage for Konica Minolta products alongside their existing service offering.

It was this seamless and comprehensive offering that resulted in Mt Maunganui-based, International Port Logistics provider, ISO Limited, choosing to partner with Brother on Managed Print Services for all its A4 and A3 print solutions,  

“From the start we knew Brother was a company we could work with. They were professional, transparent and delivered on their promises. The devices met all our requirements and their cost per page rates were highly competitive. Plus, they are local.” says ISO Limited Commercial Manager, Justin Scholes.

Brother has since replaced ISO Limited’s nationwide print fleet with Brother and Konica Minolta devices, with installations from Bluff, all the way to Whangarei.
