From 2011 to 2012, sales of colour printers fell by 22%. Manufacturers can no longer rely on shifting huge numbers of printers to make a profit. Similarly, taking control of your print budget is essential if you want to stay competitive in today’s recession-hit economy.
Konica Minolta has responded to these changes by withdrawing its magicolor and pagepro models and focusing on its bizhub range. The multifunction bizhub printers are only available through Konica’s ClickPack program – a managed print service designed to give you full control your printing costs.
ClickPack billing is transparent and simple, with a fixed rental cost for your hardware and software and a fixed cost per page which covers all your servicing and consumables. There’s no minimum billing and the page costs are billed in arrears, so you only pay for what you print.
Contracts are 3, 4 or 5 years in length, with ongoing technical support, access to the ClickPack portal and a single number to call for ordering consumables and logging service calls. With fixed costs, transparent billing and a fully-inclusive service, ClickPack gives you everything you need to take control of your print infrastructure.
The bizhub range covers the full spectrum of multifunction devices, both mono and colour, from the A4 bizhub 25e to the 55 page per minute SRA3 bizhub C554e. Check out the full range of Konica Minolta bizhub printers and find out more about the ClickPack managed print service.
Printware is one of just five authorised ClickPack dealers, underlining our close relationship with Konica Minolta and our firm belief in the benefits of managed print.
