Konica Minolta is proud to announce that the bizhub B650i Series has earned a Better Buys Editor’s Choice Award in Q4 2020 in the monochrome multifunctional printers (MFP) category. The Better Buys’ Office Equipment Editor’s Choice Awards recognise the top manufacturers in the industry and results were compiled from in-depth analysis of recently-released office equipment products across the globe.
The B650i Series devices were launched in January as part of an expansion of the bizhub i-Series line. The bizhub portfolio was recognised last year when the new bizhub C650i Series also earned a Better Buys Editor's Choice Award in Q2 2020 for its high-volume machine category.
Over 20 years the Better Buys platform has become a trusted authority for delivering unbiased, expert insights on the software and technology that SMEs rely on. Better Buys evaluates products both individually and also compares them against the competition across a range of criteria. This includes unique features, value to the customer and pricing. Konica Minolta's bizhub C650i and B650i series were part of only a handful of vendors chosen for these honours.
The bizhub i-Series product line is a part of Konica Minolta's next-generation multifunctional device portfolio designed to empower digital workflows. These MFP models represent a new paradigm for how multifunctional devices meet the needs of businesses by serving as a secure, smart technology hub to augment office connectivity. All models boast the same fresh, contemporary exterior design, with great usability features, which Konica Minolta has become known for in the industry.
"The launch of the monochrome models completed our bizhub i-Series product line and allow us to provide the ease of use we have become known for in the industry, with customers being able to choose between colour or  monochrome,” said Mohammed Vachiat, Head of Sales and Innovation at Konica Minolta South Africa. "As the world of work and our customers and end users’ needs continue to change, our bizhub multifunctional devices offer versatile and tailored solutions for any type of business and organisation, ensuring minimal disruption to productivity and efficiency."
