Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) has announced the launch of its cloud-based Workplace Pure platform.
Formally known as bizhub Evolution, Workplace Pure provides 24/7 access to a platform of constantly evolving services including centralised upload to cloud repositories, cloud print, secure guest print, smart document conversion and translation – all automated and streamlined from a single source.
Workplace Pure’s integration of external cloud storage services (including Dropbox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive, and SharePoint Online) ensures business teams have full but secure access to these storage services, enabling them to work seamlessly in unison and avoiding potential data silo, sharing/synchronising, or security issues. All the services can be fully accessed via a tablet, laptop, or smartphone browser, making it extremely easy to use and flexible to the needs of an organisation and team.
The Cloud Print service delivers flexibility through location-independent secure printing from various applications, with fast and easy deployment. Print directly from an application (like Microsoft Word), via a browser on a smartphone or tablet, from a Google environment, or Microsoft Universal Print, all via Workplace Pure using secure follow-me authentication.
Other features include the Convert services enabling paper or digital documents to be converted into Word, Excel, or PDF, creating a fully searchable document. Workplace Pure’s Translate service uses powerful AI-powered machine translation from a source language to a target language. Meanwhile, the EasyFlow service allows uploaded documents to be sent electronically to a designated approver to be signed digitally with a single tap or click.
Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Category Manager Office Phillip John commented: “Workplace Pure supports our customers in their migration towards cloud-based environments, which reduce IT maintenance requirements as well as delivering IT infrastructure and solutions.
“As a provider of print and document management business solutions, we realised that there was also a need for easy-to-use tools for document processes with everything under one roof.”
