Konica Minolta Publishes Case Study on xPrint
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
SINGAPORE - Leader in print and enterprise content management Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia today published a case study based on Malaysian online printing firm xPrint. It highlights how Konica Minolta played an integral role in the firm's success, and the results of its latest PRESS C1100 production printer.
xPrint was founded in 2005 to fulfil large to small quantity on-demand business printing and graphic printing orders through its unique user-friendly online ordering system. The system allows print dealers to print their orders anytime, anywhere, enabling xPrint to reach a wide coverage of Malaysian customers quickly, while effectively overcoming payment bottlenecks associated with a prepaid policy.
With its innovative online print ordering concept, xPrint's business started to grow in 2007. This resulted in demands for faster deliveries and consistent print quality, and brought to light the limitations of its existing fleet of colour multifunctional printers. As such, xPrint decided it was time to source for a more reliable and cost-effective digital production printer.
xPrint concluded that Konica Minolta bizhub PRO 6500 was the best fit to take their business to the next level with its excellent print quality, affordability, and environmental friendliness with its plant-based Simitri HD toner.
