The end of unstructured ways of the collaborative workplace

Our workplace has fundamentally changed in the past years. Ever more workflows and processes are built around interconnected teams and different departments. Organisations have to provide their employees with the necessary solutions without having to place an additional burden on IT departments or their budgets. Considering this aspect, Konica Minolta provides solutions and technology in the field of document management and sharing, communities management, project management and discussions feeds/instant messaging ensuring that organisations' work processes and documents are accessible remotely – independent of location, time and device. The solutions enable individual flexibility and mobility in order to bring employees closer together.

The sheer flood of data and information paired with the high number of different tasks result in unstructured ways of working. Unclear priorities, varying levels of knowledge among peers and an inability to receive timely and accurate status information let us communicate not in the best way and hinder the work progress and make it hard to coordinate teams for a better teamwork. Besides, the geographical diversity of locations require systems that make collaboration effortless and seamless.  


Effective collaboration drives productivity and gives companies a critical, leading edge. Many decision makers see the positive effects of social collaboration platforms, which is why they increasingly want to implement them.

Digital collaboration: addressing the challenges SMEs face 

Especially for small and medium-sized businesses, taking on the creation of a digital collaborative environment and a modern workplace for their workers by themselves entails big challenges:  There is a lack of appropriate resources and budget. 


In addition, the solutions must be holistic. Simply adding collaboration software as an additional layer that is only semi- or non-compatible with existing solutions can lead to an opaque tangle and have negative consequences for the collaborative user experience and the efficiency of the system itself. 


Businesses also require scalable and flexible solutions that adapt to the changing needs of the business. 


With our holistic approach, Konica Minolta helps you to make working together with remote teams and colleagues effortless – particularly when they are operating from different locations. We offer you solutions for a wide range of modern collaboration applications that are implemented and adjusted based on your needs.
