Konica Minolta Becomes Microsoft Global Managed Partner

By Luke Bellos

Tokyo-based IT specialist Konica Minolta recently announced that the company has been made an official Microsoft Global Managed Partner.

The company began its relationship with Microsoft back in 2014, when it first began to offer customers access to Microsoft SharePoint solutions. This eventually led to Konica offering Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Office 365, fully leveraging Microsoft’s business software. The company’s status as a global partner will allow Konica’s global customer base to leverage these solutions to expand business functionality and profitability.

“We are delighted to partner with Konica Minolta on a global level to accompany their growth in IT and to unlock the opportunities of digital transformation for their customers," said Casey McGee, Vice President, ISV Sales at Microsoft. "The Microsoft Cloud is uniquely positioned to provide a breadth of industry-leading services and products to support Konica Minolta's development of differentiated solutions for the digital workplace."

Konica originally focused its attention on the North American and European markets, but the official partnership granted the company access to the Asia-pacific region. The company has also developed its own applications and solutions that are compatible with Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure, to broadly cover the customer demands of all sized businesses.

"Microsoft has become increasingly important as an ally for us," said Hajime Takei, Senior Executive Officer and Division President of Digital Workplace Business Headquarters, Konica Minolta, Inc. "The goal has always been to bring together the best of both worlds. We want to bring the leading expertise to the market, combining our knowledge from our business – with its roots in the print area, which we have been doing for many decades - and the technology of Microsoft. This designation is a true testament to our longstanding relationship and the exceptional work of our unified teams for clients around the world.”
