Konica Minolta Wins Two BLI Awards from Keypoint Intelligence for Its Print and Document Management Solutions

Dispatcher Paragon and Document Navigator 5 have been recognised as “outstanding solutions” 

Langenhagen, Germany, 25 January 2021

Konica Minolta is proud to announce that it has won two major awards for its print and document management solutions Dispatcher Paragon and Document Navigator 5. The print accounting and management solution Dispatcher Paragon has won the Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 Pick Award for Outstanding Cost Accounting & Recovery Solution, while the document capturing solution Document Navigator 5 has been awarded the BLI 2021 Pick Award for Outstanding Document Capture Solution. 

Dispatcher Paragon keeps costs under control

Companies are under more pressure than ever before when it comes to keeping their costs in check. However, many organisations have no control over who is printing, what is being printed, how much an individual user or department is printing or how much money they are spending on printing overall.

With Dispatcher Paragon costs relating to printing, scanning, copying and faxing can be centrally tracked and easily charged back to the relevant teams, departments and individual users. This helps organisations to eliminate paper waste and prevent IT budgets from spiralling out of control. 

“Konica Minolta Dispatcher Paragon comes with everything you need to take control of your print environment”, says Lee Davis, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Software/Scanners. “Print rules can be implemented to use lower-cost settings like duplex and black-and-white only, and administrators can define which functions are available to individual users. Konica Minolta Dispatcher Paragon also provides business with granular pricing and cost recuperation tools. Different prices can be set by user, cost center, device, or project, and administrators can enforce budgets, or define quotas to keep print costs in check”.

Integrate analogue documents into digital workflows with Document Navigator 5

Data – and the ability to access it quickly—have never been more important. On the other hand, most employees spend considerable time on recurring tasks as part of their daily working routine. Documents have to be scanned, processed and delivered to one or more destinations, such as another department, a CRM system or an electronic archiving solution. All of these administrative tasks involve a lot of manual intervention for each individual document. 

With the Document Navigator, document-based workflows can be easily automated. By offering intelligent document capture, processing and delivery, the Konica Minolta Document Navigator provides seamless electronic workflows for paper-based documents. 

“Konica Minolta Document Navigator gives businesses high-end yet accessible tools such as visual, drag-and-drop workflow creators, connectors to third-party software, and a host of document processing tools to automate and increase the efficiency of their business processes”, says Andrew Unsworth, Consulting Editor at Keypoint Intelligence. “All that’s required is imagination, which makes the solution a deserving two-time recipient of a Buyer Lab Pick Award”. 

“With our two solutions, it has never been easier to keep track of document costs and to make analogue documents digitally available and integrated into digital workflows so quickly. Dispatcher Paragon and Document Navigator 5 generate high added value for any organisation and contribute to increased efficiency and effectiveness. We are very pleased that Keypoint Intelligence recognises this and the two awards prove once again that Konica Minolta is a leader in the field of print and document management”, says Florian Loske, Manager Office Product Management, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.
