1st March 2023 – Solimar Systems, Inc., provider of leading workflow software solutions for print production and digital communications, has expanded its strategic partnership with Konica Minolta Business Solutions to now include its UK operations as well as those in the USA. The extended partnership between these two prominent companies is a testament to this collaboration’s success to date and the many benefits it brings to both organizations’ valued customer base.
The US and now UK partnership brings workflow-enhancing solutions from the Solimar Chemistry™ platform to Konica Minolta (KM) customers. Solimar’s modular software platform captures and supports the migration of print to KM output devices and supports traditional data-driven print environments. Solimar’s solutions also support new technologies coming to market from KM, offering Print Service Providers (PSPs) streamlined workflows that drive business efficiencies and boost ROI.
“We have a longstanding partnership with KM in the United States, delivering robust, industrial workflow solutions to support the ongoing challenges faced by PSPs and in-house print environments. We will replicate this partnership in the UK, combining Solimar workflow solutions for existing and potential customers of KM output devices, whether that be toner-based or inkjet cutsheet,” comments Jamie Walsh, Sales Manager for EMEA and APAC, Solimar Systems.
The partnership between Solimar and KM combines a wealth of experience in workflow and digital cutsheet inkjet printing equipment.
According to Jon Hiscock, Head of Professional Print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK, “Solimar’s solutions deliver a new level of visibility across operations and provide end-to-end workflow management. Solimar’s advanced workflow automation processes provide customers with the tools they need to take better control of the business, improve production efficiencies and boost ROI,” states Hiscock.
Replicating the success of the existing partnership in the USA, Solimar and KM will provide value-added capabilities with a single point of control, including production environment dashboards and alerts through the SOLitrack suite for increased visibility, tracking, and reporting.
Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK will distribute the Solimar Chemistry platform throughout the UK with their professional print teams.
