Redesigning Business Solutions in A Post-Pandemic Workplace

The Covid-19 crisis brings with it wave after wave of challenges, especially in the context of a workplace. Though it has had a profound impact on how we live, its far-reaching effects on the workplace is accelerating adoption of agile working practices, shifting business continuity plans.

To get a sense of the speed we are dealing with, consider the videoconferencing app, Zoom. In just a matter of months, the company has added up to 2.22 million monthly active users in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. As millions transition to working from home, businesses are redefining their approach to workflow processes such as document digitization, communication and employee engagement.

What we recognise as a fast-paced world is now beyond measure. Without the luxury of time, businesses need to scale long-term digital strategy initiatives in a matter of months to keep pace.

Reshaping Employee Experience with Improved Workflow

Employees represent organisations and influence work velocity through engagement and productivity. As such, keeping their needs a priority is essential in developing an experience they will value. Businesses need to accommodate adjustments to remote work by mapping for resilience and efficiency for the long haul.

Streamlining business workflow can be achieved through document digitization, reduction in manual processes and integrated storage capacities. Leveraging the organisational element of a document automation software like KOMI Doc Cloud grants businesses real-time access to updated documents, without losing hours in productivity sieving through different versions.

Effective Communication Flow

Even before the pandemic, businesses were gradually adopting integrated tools to create smoother communication channels for both internal and external use – but this is now critical to longevity. Your communication is the glue holding various departments, functions and clients together.

Using all-in-one tools like the KOMI Doc Cloud platform allow businesses to simultaneously consolidate information for internal business units, clients and suppliers. You can close communication loops by reassigning feedback to requesters and even automate the process to reduce legwork.

Flexibility In Virtual Processes

Without supporting software, it can be difficult for employees to get work done efficiently at home. Equipping your communication strategies with digital content management services creates customised, clean workflows without sacrificing efficiency, productivity and trust in the business.

Increased Security

Security has long been a focal point for businesses undergoing digital transformation. Fast-forward to today and cybersecurity is the new reality.

The best part of digitizing your documents and workflows is in its accessibility. With authorised access, KOMI Doc Cloud allows employees to retrieve and upload documents remotely, without compromising on encryption, authentication and other elevated security features. The document control process is more secure with the Digital Safe Box feature, alleviating potential for document loss or leaks.

Designing For Higher Efficiency

54% of leaders attribute poor technology infrastructure to ineffective remote work. Leveraging the power of digital management platforms can help businesses structure, manage and consolidate brand assets in one place.

With clearer definition in user permissions, document storage and custom workflows, employees can work with laser focus. Reshaping the post-pandemic workspace – digitally or otherwise – is a significant shift. But, Konica Minolta’s business solutions in the realm of document digitization and automation can offer businesses results, from effective open communication to streamlined workflow processes.

In the age of digital transformation, cybercrime has emerged as today’s fastest-growing form of criminal activity, with 43% of online attacks now aimed at the Small Medium-sized Enterprises (SME)s, yet only 14% are prepared to defend themselves.1 What this means to business owners, is the increasing  need to be more cybersecurity conscious and  to invest more to defend themselves against cyberattacks that pose significant threat to their IT infrastructure. Companies need to educate their staff to send any suspicious targeted social engineering attack such as scareware directly to cybersecurity team for analysis, and business owners also needs to work closely with international law enforcement agencies as well as national regulatory bodies to build a comprehensive cyber defence.

As COVID-19 pandemic continues to sweep the globe, cybercriminals around the world undoubtedly are poised to capitalise on the crisis by launching a different kind of “virus”. Companies should ensure all corporate owned or managed devices are equipped with essential security capabilities and adhere to security best practices in remote environments. These critical capabilities such as the ability to: 2

  • securely connect users to their business-critical cloud and on-premise applications, such as video teleconferencing applications which are increasingly relevant for remote work environments
  • Provide endpoint protection on all laptops and mobile devices, including VPN tools with encryption
  • Enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • Block exploits, malware and command-and-control (C2) traffic using real-time, automated threat intelligence
  • Filter malicious domain URLs and perform DNS sinkholing to thwart common phishing attacks

While organisations may eventually face the prospect of functioning with little to no personnel on-site and other important support functions, and businesses are trying to figure out how to stay operational in a virtual world, the need to invest in cybersecurity solutions to protect their businesses, especially since the loss of personal information and impact of a cyber-attack can be far greater than the cost of getting protected in the first place.3

Hacking techniques are constantly evolving and is increasingly getting more complex. As a result, cybersecurity is a growing concern for the organisation globally. Legacy technologies such as firewall and antivirus software are proving inadequate in this evolving cyber threat landscape. Vulnerabilities in the computer system security have been exploited by unethical hackers, resulting in millions of personal information being stolen, sold or held for ransom, creating a debilitating impact on the economy. With Konica Minolta CyberSecure Platform, we provide multi-featured defence in a box which helps organisations to mitigate cyber threats instantly.4

An innovative and automated way of securing your network, the CyberSecure Platform typically deploys in-line, where the packet is processed in lightning speed with comprehensive security engine that prevents intrusion. Most importantly, the CyberSecure Platform is invisible to the hackers, thus provides a robust protection to your network.

How well do you know your office printer or multifunction device? Most of the employees only know the basic functions of printing, scanning, faxing and copying. In this article, we are going to tell you about some of the useful functions and things that you probably didn’t know your printer can do, that will allow you to use your printers to the fullest potential.

Print on-the-go with any devices

Printing anything from anywhere is no longer a fantasy. In fact, it is often a necessity for most people using handheld devices like smartphone, tablet and laptop which are essential part of your daily workflow.

No more worrying about “Where can I print?”, you can now print remotely with device of your choice through the mobile printing function. The function allows you to easily connect your mobile device to the printer or multifunction device, and seamlessly print and scan documents at any time. Moreover, this makes your printing jobs even simpler as you can print a document from one location, then collect it from another.

Some printing jobs can be completed via email where your email address is connected with your printer and you can send document to print before you leave your work, so that there is no reason to miss important deadlines due to printing issues. All these capabilities increase your productivity and help you save time to focus the more important things.

Storage Management

Most printers can store hundreds and thousands of pages in the built-in memory. There is also a USB port for you to insert a USB flash drive and using it as an extra external drive. Simply save the files in the USB flash drive by using the touchscreen panel of your printer or drag-and-drop the files in Windows Explorer or Finder on a Mac from your PC. Subsequently, you can print directly from the USB flash drive or just unplug and insert it to another compatible device to read your files.

Scan hardcopy documents to editable and searchable formats

Are you having a hard time re-keying the information from hardcopy documents like invoices, forms, contracts? The manual process can be time consuming and prone to human errors. By using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, you can digitise paper documents with your multifunction device.

The OCR technology allows you to scan paper documents, capture all the data automatically and turn them into a text documents including PDF or Microsoft Office documents which can be further edited and searchable. The document conversion makes it easier for companies to process paper documents on a daily basis.

Print customized labels and stickers

Using your printer, you can print colourful, eye-catching materials like labels and stickers that adds a touch of professionalism to your client gifts, tradeshows and conferences. All you need is a good-quality inkjet printer which could handle a variety of document types, including labels and stickers. You just need to make a few adjustments to the default setting while printing labels, stickers and nametags, and you be on your way to get the best results that you are looking for!

Go green and help save the planet

More than ever, businesses across the world are working hard to reduce their environmental footprint and to create a sustainable future for the planet. Selecting the right printer, you can automatically reduce paper wastage and minimise impact to the environmental without any conscious effort.

Konica Minolta promotes sustainable development and integrates environmental and social perspectives into our business strategies. You can rely on Konica Minolta products to underpin your green strategy to build your business.

To address environmental issues such as global warming, our products are designed and manufactured to complying with global environmental standards, including the International Energy Star Program which aims to develop and introduce highly energy-efficient office equipment.

When it comes to the printer’s end of life, the material of the printer can also have a significant impact on what happens next. The plastics used in most printers are detrimental to the environment, so Konica Minolta developed a proprietary recycled PET-based polymer alloy, which is regarded as a promising sustainable plastic. The recyclable material effectively uses PET waste which has a lower environmental impact.

As the printing, label, and flexible packaging industry continues to face stiff competition, it is even more important for commercial printing companies to be able to offer competitive options and stay ahead of the rest of the crowd. One way to distinguish yourself from your competitors is to offer digital embellishment on labels and flexible packaging, which can help elevate your print jobs and differentiate your services to capture the attention of your customer base.

Konica Minolta’s MGI JETvarnish 3D Web uses digital technology to give you higher flexibility, faster delivery times, and improved personalisation options across your products. It is the only digital printer than can do spot UV and foil digital enhancement on web-printed products, enabling you to produce embellished labels and flexible packaging within the same production line. This helps to save on overhead costs and redirect manpower or finance resources to other parts of the business.

1. Wider variety of finishings and substrate compatibility

The MGI JETvarnish 3D Web comes with a full Rotary Flexo UV station, which expands the substrate compatibility by applying a coating on top of incompatible substrates so that embellishment can be applied.

You can now achieve and offer embellishment options including spot UV, foiling (in both flat and embossed effects), and texture printing across multiple product types and substrates, including coated and uncoated paper, synthetics, films, and light cardboard.

With compatibility assured across digital and traditional printing technologies, the MGI JETvarnish 3D enables companies to enhance their labels and flexible packaging within one system. Embracing an all-in-one digital solution such as this can help streamline and simplify your production processes

2. Improved production speed balanced with high-quality finishings

With so many competitors now fighting for visibility, shortening turnaround time on print jobs while maintaining a high-quality final product is crucial to setting yourself apart as a market leader. As more customers seek out multi-sensory brand experiences, digital embellishments are a great way to offer unique options and remain ahead of the curve.

Konica Minolta’s exclusive inkjet technology ensures precise and efficient embellishment applications for print jobs of all sizes, with print speeds of up to 42 m/min. At the same time, the MGI JETvarnish 3D Web can achieve tactile and embossing effects from 7 to 232 microns – so you can enjoy consistent and premium printing quality even across high-volume requests.

The integrated MGI Artificial Intelligence Smartscanner (AIS) varnish and hot-foil registration system further reduces make-ready time and waste by automatically accounting for skew, stretch, contraction, and shift adjustment. Each image is scanned and automatically compared with a digital mask file during the printing process itself to ensure pinpoint accuracy with no registration marks required. If defects are detected on the printed substrate, the AIS will automatically adjust the spot UV and foil to align precisely with the defective print. This ensures consistency across your finished products, cutting down on excess waste.

3. Personalisation options with digital Spot UV and iFOIL technology

A major draw of embellishment printing is the opportunity for increased personalisation which delivers exceptional print enhancement value to the decoration, label, and flexible packaging markets. With MGI’s patented technologies, the MGI JETvarnish 3D Web can produce variable 2D or 3D spot varnish and foil embellishments, allowing you to offer even more customisation options. iFOIL technology also enables you to print a wide variety of foil types including metallic, holographic, matte, and pigmented foils. This allows you to create added value across a variety of formats, enhancing the range of products you can offer to customers.

Rethinking office operations with Konica Minolta

Konica Minolta aims to revolutionise the way offices operate, taking a leap into the future with the bizhub i-Series and Dispatcher Paragon, as well as a suite of other tools that deliver an intelligent connected workplace of the future. To learn more about what we can do for your office and business, consult our specialists today.

Following a year of workplace changes that taught businesses plenty about scalability, we can relook at the function of the everyday office. No longer serving as the main workspace for employees following pandemic-enforced remote working measures, the office we see today can serve a more holistic function. More as a space for collaboration and networking, it complements employees’ preferences for flexible workplaces.

Businesses providing such flexible workspace arrangements such as co-working, shared office spaces or ‘work from hotel’ solutions will therefore need to step up to adapt to the trends. Providing operationally-ready environments is one, but delivering more value to remote workers is another.

Ensuring that these flexi-work places come equipped with printers that have similar or more functions than that of their usual workspace is pertinent. What are the best office printers to suit today’s working styles?

How do you choose a printer that better suits your business?

More offices today are going paperless and relying on technology such as cloud computing to organise their essential documents and files. While larger enterprises can bear the heavy costs of digitalisation more easily, small and medium businesses (SMBs) might struggle to make the switch due to financial or manpower limitations.

For many mom-and-pop type businesses, office printers and copy machines still have an important place in the supply room for a variety of reasons. This can include dealing with clients who still rely heavily on printed documents, lacking the infrastructure to potentially deal with software or server crashes in a digital ecosystem, or simply preferring the process of printing hardcopies.

At the same time, optimising your office printing services is crucial to helping manage or even cut down on overhead costs. Konica Minolta’s bizhub i-Series offers a wide range of multifunction printing and photocopier machines that increase efficiency, connectivity, and usability.
