Brother International (NZ) has entered into a partnership with Konica Minolta by which the company will now sell European ‘Develop’ copier brand in the country, and expand its product range to offer printers and copiers suitable for both large and small businesses.
The agreement will enable Brother NZ to offer companies balanced deployment analyses, which includes looking at print usage and business workflows to recommend the best solution through a mix of large and small machines.
“For Brother to offer balanced deployment, we needed a partner with complementary capabilities that could enhance our product range and help achieve a balanced product line. We’ve found that ideal partnership in Konica Minolta,” said Graham Walshe, executive chairman of Brother International (NZ) Limited.
“There are many current challenges surrounding output for organisations. This includes lack of knowledge of hardware costs, difficulty assessing device utilisation, cost of consumables, and maintaining and repairing devices.
“This partnership addresses and recognises changing market trends, and responds to New Zealand companies who are looking for managed print services,” Walshe said.
