Thursday, April 08, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Ramsey, N.J. – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, announced today that the Sir Speedy of Los Alamitos (Calif.) has chosen Konica Minolta's award-winning bizhub PRO C6501 and bizhub PRO 1200 Digital Presses to drive its full-service Marketing Services Program.  Sir Speedy has moved beyond a traditional print-for-pay model to offer and implement full-service marketing programs for its customers, from design to implementation, with the Konica Minolta bizhub PRO Digital Presses playing a key role in the output phase of the marketing campaigns.

Turn-Key and Custom Campaigns
With the addition of these systems, Sir Speedy is delivering turn-key customized campaigns to its customers through services such as creative design, variable data printing (VDP), data management and direct marketing response metrics.  In addition, Sir Speedy is enhancing its booklet-making capabilities and output quality, among other key areas, in several important vertical markets including Education, Insurance, Manufacturing, Marketing, Automotive and Non-Profit.  As part of its new business strategy and commitment to customers, Sir Speedy selected Konica Minolta from among multiple solutions due to return on investment (ROI), quality, consistency and advanced finishing capabilities.  Key to its ongoing success, Sir Speedy had been using the bizhub PRO 1050e during its 10+-year partnership with Konica Minolta.

"We are bringing our business to a new level by delivering full-service marketing solutions to customers with the addition of the bizhub PRO C6501 and bizhub PRO 1200," said Allen McLean, President and Owner, Sir Speedy Los Alamitos.  "Before the implementation of these systems, if a critical booklet job came in on a Friday and we had a system down, we might struggle to meet an important deadline.  Now, with the new Konica Minolta solutions, we meet all deadlines and have increased our productivity and customer satisfaction."

bizhub PRO C6501 and bizhub PRO 1200
With the addition of the bizhub PRO C6501 and bizhub PRO 1200, Sir Speedy expects to enjoy a solid ROI in several areas, with operational savings alone to be more than $200,000 over the next several years.  With Konica Minolta's 200-page booklet-making and edge-trimming capabilities, coupled with its 1200x1200 DPI and advanced LED Technology, Sir Speedy Los Alamitos is excited to offer enhanced quality and value-enhanced solutions to its customer base and deliver new solutions to future customers.

"Sir Speedy's business success is exactly the type of customer satisfaction story we like to hear from the field as it clearly showcases how our digital presses can increase our end-users' revenues and productivity," said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc.  "Counting on Konica Minolta has never been as easy as it is today with our award-winning bizhub PRO product line."
