Konica Minolta’s Workplace Hub awarded Managed.IT Magazine’s Editors Choice

Judged on design, innovation and functionality, the all-in-one solution was an easy choice for the managed services & solutions magazine.


Continuing to highlight their digital transformation success, the prominent technology provider Konica Minolta was recently awarded the prestigious Editor’s Choice award by Managed.IT Magazine for its Workplace Hub solution.


The magazine is the only dedicated Managed Services & Solutions magazine for IT managers, and aims to provide IT decision-makers with the information they need to improve their technology management, efficiency and capabilities. With the Editor’s Choice award based on three key criteria of design, innovation, and functionality, the editor felt that Workplace Hub was a great example of combining these aspects into an exemplary solution for the workplace.


Speaking on his decision, James Goulding, Editor at Managed.IT said “It’s not easy to be truly innovative in the office solutions arena. The Workplace Hub however represents a significant development for Konica Minolta, their customers, channel partners and the next generation of office workers. This is a well-deserved award.”


Workplace Hub’s unique proposition is that it’s an all-in-one scalable IT solution, seamlessly integrating hardware, software and services into a multi-vendor platform. As the first entrant into this new market, Workplace Hub is a key player in the technology giant’s intent to continue their innovation legacy that dates back over 145 years, and become a leading IT services provider.


“From the very initial idea of Workplace Hub, we knew we had the potential to disrupt traditional product categories. But the challenge was not to only be a first entrant, but to produce a successful solution that simplifies IT for our customers and allows them to work smarter. With our Japanese heritage, it was important to us that the engineering and product development was high calibre, but we also wanted to make sure that the managed services and support is exceptional so that we can provide a truly all-in-one experience for the customer,” explained Dennis Curry, Konica Minolta Deputy CTO and Technology Fellow. 


This recognition continues Workplace Hub’s award success, adding to its existing accolades given for its strategic brand communications and visual identity.


Francis Thornhill, Head of Marketing at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd’s IT services business unit added, “This unique all-in-one IT platform is an exciting addition to our IT services portfolio. Already 15% of our revenues come from IT services – from IT assessments through to managed cloud and Infrastructure services. As a starting point we always recommend our free IT healthcheck service – it provides customers with complete visibility of their existing IT infrastructure to make the right decisions for their business.”
