The event, Igniting innovations, powering possibilities, harnessed the full breadth of Konica Minolta's product portfolio. The company recognised that many businesses are facing challenges with integrating different workflow systems. The PowerHouse exhibition offered solutions to address these potential roadblocks. The series of solutions aim to create a unified platform that streamlines workflows, improves communication, and promotes sustainable practices throughout organisations.

The exhibition featured interactive zones showcasing Konica Minolta's wide range of solutions. These zones covered various product areas like smart workplace solutions, optimised print services, and production printers. The interactive design allowed visitors to experience Konica Minolta's offerings firsthand.

Building on the success of the inaugural event held at Conrad, Pune, with Konica Minolta's leadership team in attendance, including Priyangshu Das, head of enterprise sales division; Manish Gupta, head of product lifecycle management and planning division (production and industrial business); Sanjay Monga, head of marketing operation division and S Parameswaran Iyer, head of product lifecycle management and planning division (office business).

That's why we offer intelligent business solutions that act as your trusted technology partner. We manage your IT infrastructure, data environments, and automation, freeing you to focus on what you do best. Our PowerHouse exhibition series showcases this vision. By experiencing our connected solutions firsthand, business leaders see how innovation empowers them. Each Konica Minolta solution is powerful on its own, but together they create a comprehensive and scalable ecosystem for your business success.”

The smart office solutions zone showcased a powerful combination: industry-leading printing devices, unified communication (UC) solutions, and optimised print services. This synergy offered a glimpse into a future of streamlined workflows and boosted employee productivity.

Unified Communication platforms streamline workflows by merging communication tools (calls, messages, meetings) into a single platform. This not only simplifies daily work for employees but also provides valuable data on communication patterns. While some specialised tools may still be needed, a unified platform offers significant benefits for most knowledge workers. These platforms are increasingly cloud-based, offering more features and easier disaster recovery compared to traditional on-premises solutions. Businesses can now attract and retain top talent regardless of location, as employees can work from wherever they're most productive.

The business application zone brought Konica Minolta's complete production printing workflow to life. Visitors witnessed the process unfold, starting with high-volume printers and progressing through post-press applications like UV spotting and embellishments. The zone culminated in a demonstration of precise roll-to-roll (R2R) labelling, highlighting the power of on-demand label printing. Seeing real-time label creation showcased the potential for significantly reduced lead times and minimised inventory. This streamlined workflow empowers businesses to react swiftly to changing market demands. Overall, the PowerHouse event provided a platform for customers to experience how partnering with Konica Minolta can elevate their business through efficient and responsive printing solution.

In a world increasingly defined by data and efficiency, Konica Minolta isn't just a vendor, we are a strategic partner. Positioned as the blueprint for the future of intelligent business. Konica Minolta Business Solutions demonstrated the "Power of One" philosophy, for preparing organisations to navigate the complexities of the world of work, where digital transformation becomes knowledge, and knowledge becomes power.
