Develop Win "Lineup Of The Year 2012" Again!
For the second consecutive year, Develop (Konica Minolta) has won Buyers Laboratory (BLI’s) most coveted award—A3 MFP Line of the Year. Once each year, Buyers Lab, the leading global provider of information and testing services to the digital imaging industry, acknowledges the vendors whose product lines are determined to be the best overall in their respective categories based on the cumulative results of models tested in BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluation. By assessing reliability, image quality, ease of use, productivity and a range of other criteria, the tests reveal the products that deliver customers the best value and most trouble-free performance. Also considered are the breadth of the vendor’s line and the vendor’s ability to provide quality products suitable to a broad spectrum of customer needs, from low-volume to high-volume.
“The Develop (Konica Minolta) line continues to impress, currently including 14 A3 “Pick” winners—more than any other MFP vendor,” said George Mikolay, senior product editor, A3/Copier MFPs. Moreover, reliability—buyers’ number one concern—is a differentiator for Develop’s A3 product line across the board, both colour and black. “It’s a remarkable achievement that among all 14 ‘Pick’ winners, not a single malfunction occurred,” said BLI Managing Editor Daria Hoffman, pointing out that the only service required was for routine scheduled preventive maintenance. “When all currently tested A3 models are considered, Develop has the best reliability record of all eligible vendors, proving that it offers the quality buyers consider more important than any other.”
