Employing an in-house team of specialists has resulted in Bidvest company, Konica Minolta South Africa, scooping the Pcounter Europe partner of the year award for the third year in a row.

Pcounter adds value to Konica Minolta South Africa’s bizhub devices by offering print and document accounting solutions for a wide variety of industries, achieving enhanced productivity and cost savings for customers. The annual award is bestowed on a vendor for outstanding work and focus in representing, selling and supporting products from Pcounter Europe and driving the business to new goals.
“Winning the 2008, 2009 and 2010 partner awards illustrates that our first-rate team of experts, consisting of Pcounter sales executives, implementers and developers, differentiates us from other Pcounter partners in Africa,” says Mohammed Vachiat, product manager at Konica Minolta South Africa.
“We believe that both the partner accolade and our client wins are due to us focusing on the principle that only by thoroughly listening to our customers can we fully understand their needs, thereby allowing us to use our expert knowledge to configure and customise the most accurate solution that will both enhance their business productivity and show a definite return on investment.
"Pcounter’s products help businesses overcome the challenges of paper and other resource wastage from unproductive printing and copying and the ineffective use of colour for jobs where it is not needed,” he adds.
This enables clients to understand their current cost of printing and document management, optimise the use of existing devices, recover costs where possible, increase productivity by releasing a print job to the most appropriate device and minimise expenses through rules based printing.
“As Pcounter partner of the year, our clients can be assured of the highest calibre of third party expertise, efforts and tailored solutions from Konica Minolta South Africa,” concludes Vachiat.
