New A4 colour series offers rich functionality and smooth integration with A3 devices

| 14 August 2017

JOHANNESBURG - 14 August 2017 - Konica Minolta South Africa, a division of Bidvest Office (Pty) Ltd, has introduced the bizhub C3351 series, comprising three colour devices, to the local market. The new A4 series combines high-end quality, reliability and solution connectivity with a large number of customisation possibilities, in order to meet the latest market demands and business challenges.

Smooth operation and enhanced customisation features

“As successors to the bizhub C3350 series, the new MFPs offer Konica Minolta’s renowned high quality and reliability standards, as well as providing improved customisation features and state-of-the-art connectivity options,” explains Greg Griffith, business solutions product manager at Konica Minolta South Africa. “These machines integrate seamlessly into existing office environments, meeting high-level demands.

“User interface customisation specifically allows for operators to tailor the seven-inch multi-touch screen to fit their individual needs - by adding shortcuts, widgets, applications or the customer’s company logo – while enabling greater levels of efficiency in the preparation of smaller and more complex copy, print, scan and fax jobs.”

Thanks to the user interface, identical to that used by Konica Minolta A3 devices, operation is easy and intuitive. The tablet-like operation panel supports pairing with mobile devices and services, such as Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, to further increase workflow flexibility and improve mobile device collaboration. With its multi-touch-screen, the bizhub C3351 machine provides seamless usability between devices, including other MFPs, PCs, tablets and smartphones.

By also using the same controller as Konica Minolta’s A3 MFPs, the bizhub C3351 series is not only suitable as a main device in small- to medium-sized offices, but as a satellite device in large offices too.

State-of-the-art technology

The series is perfectly suited for offices that require high-end quality devices with advanced technology, but with limited space available. For the convenience of creating A4 documents, one device of the new series even comes with a built-in staple finisher. By having integrated state-of-the-art technology, the series presents itself with competitively low energy consumption and enhanced environmental performance.
