Konica Minolta Wins Best MPS Support by an OEM

Ramsey, NJ — Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), today announced it has received the Best MPS Support by an OEM Award for the company’s managed print services provided by its dealer channel at this year’s Managed Print Services Association (MPSA) Leadership Awards. The award recognizes Konica Minolta’s support of its dealer channel selling managed print services, in addition to its support of pricing, programs and additional solutions around document management, document workflow and business document processes. The awards were presented to winners during a LinkedIn.com live-stream event on October 17.

“Our dealer partners are instrumental in our innovation efforts and continue to help us become stronger in the marketplace, whether it’s through security or cloud services – and even as we look to AI and how that will drive predictive maintenance and predictive workflows in the future for our customers,” said Laura Blackmer, President, Dealer Sales, Konica Minolta. “We are so grateful to be a part of the MPSA and honored to be recognized by this award.”

“Big congratulations to Konica Minolta on the win this year,” said Eric Crump, President and Executive Board Member, Managed Print Services Association. “Reading through this year’s submissions, it was clear how much more OEMs do than make and sell devices, and it was no easy task for the judges to choose a winner. I want to thank Konica Minolta for being a MPSA member and for its excellent submission, and Laura Blackmer for her and her team’s work on our committees, especially on security. Together we can really make a difference in our industry.”

Established in 2010, the MPSA Leadership Awards honor those companies that have excelled in various areas related to the managed print field. MPSA members and non-members alike were encouraged to submit applications for evaluation and scoring by an esteemed judging panel consisting of industry leaders who were chosen from the MPSA membership and led by members of the MPSA Executive Committee to ensure impartiality and adherence to guidelines. The company that scored highest in each category was deemed winner of the respective award, with honorable mention given to the company with the second highest award. Winners serve as shining examples of commitment and expertise in the managed print services community.
