“We are excited to be showcasing our latest solutions at this year’s event. Konica Minolta’s Intelligent Video Solutions for instance help schools identify undesirable behaviour and notify staff so that resources can be targeted. By making existing CCTV systems smarter and proactive, schools using these solutions have reduced vandalism by up to 50% and been able to act against abusive behaviour, ensuring staff and pupils feel safer whilst learning.”

David Copping

Business Leader - Education & Charities Team at Konica Minolta

Konica Minolta’s Intelligent Video Solutions provide the ideal solution for any school or academy looking to upgrade its existing CCTV infrastructure with a more cost-effective and better performing alternative that offers the ability to replace multiple analogue cameras with a single camera. Visitors to the Konica Minolta stand will have the opportunity to see the Intelligent Video Solutions in operation and to learn more about the wealth of potential applications.
Also of interest for visitors are Konica Minolta’s print and scan solutions, as David Copping added, “Schools and academies are constantly processing sensitive data and documents, many of which need to be printed or scanned daily. Konica Minolta’s highly secure multi-functional devices and class-leading print solutions help ensure this data is held securely and only released to authenticated users. Schools and academies also reduce wastage and see increases in flexible working by ensuring users can print and scan securely wherever they are. Utilising the best-in-class solutions of PaperCut MF and PaperCut Hive we can deliver truly tailored solutions that perform in educational environments.”
Konica Minolta's print solutions also promote greater sustainability, reducing unnecessary and wasted printing and digitising documents where prudent. For the significant volume of pages still necessary within an education environment, customers can utilise PaperCut Grows as part of PaperCut MF or Hive, which proactively plants trees to replace those used for paper over the life of the contract. Schools can keep track in the PaperCut dashboard to ensure the number of trees planted exceeds the trees used for paper.
IT resources in schools and academies are also often stretched, with Konica Minolta’s own research showing up to 40% of schools may not update their servers and infrastructure as regularly as recommended. The team on Stand J44 will also be showing how it can help safeguard Cloud Infrastructure and IT resources and avoid the increasing numbers of cyber-attacks targeted at Education. Konica Minolta can take over regular updates and remotely monitor the entire network infrastructure, freeing up IT staff time to focus on supporting teaching and learning. The company can also help with cloud migration, either navigating the variety of cloud print solutions available or taking on larger cloud storage projects.
David Copping stated, “Schools and academies are telling us that they are under strain to meet the challenges facing their technology. Konica Minolta has developed a suite of solutions to help meet these essential challenges, so that education environments can focus more on teaching and learning, knowing that we are taking care of crucial resources. The Schools & Academies Show 2023 is the perfect opportunity to see these solutions in action and to speak to our friendly expert team about how we can help your school or academy.”
Konica Minolta is appearing on Stand J44 at the Schools & Academies Show 2023, which takes place at the NEC Birmingham on Wednesday 22nd November.
