Swiss windream Distributor Kinetic Cooperates with Graphax
Strategic partnership with exclusive producer of Konica Minolta devices extends Swiss market segments
January 4, 2012 | Bochum. – The ECM solution "windream bizhub connect", developed by the Bochum ECM producer windream GmbH, is a software for the multi-function devices of the windream partner Konica Minolta. As of now, this software will also be available in Switzerland. This strategic decision is based on a partnership contract recently concluded between the Swiss windream distributor Kinetic AG and Graphax AG, also based in Switzerland.
Exclusive Konica Minolta distributor
Graphax AG is the exclusive distributor for the copying and printing solutions of the windream partner Konica Minolta in the section of "Business Solutions" in Switzerland. Thanks to the cooperation between Kinetic and Graphax, windream GmbH is going to enter new interesting market segments in Switzerland, especially since the bizhub connect solution is an innovative and efficient software solution and seamlessly connects the windream ECM system with the Konica Minolta multi-function devices. This way, windream allows bizhub connect users to directly enter the desired index properties of hard copy documents digitalized with Konica Minolta devices on the display of their Konica Minolta system. The digitalized documents with their previously defined index properties can then directly be stored in a freely configurable windream folder of the windream ECM system. Furthermore, windream bizhub connect is based on a modern plug-in technology, allowing adjustments to customer-specific requirements and therefore maximum investment protection.
Graphax and Kinetic view the new partnership as very advantageous for the further extension of market segments in Switzerland. Daniel Lütold, executive director of Kinetic AG: "As the exclusive Konica Minolta representative in Switzerland, Graphax is of course the ideal partner for us, and therefore also for windream GmbH, the producer of the bizhub connect software. Since the compliant archiving of business-relevant documents is becoming an increasingly important topic, our customers will not only profit from our partnership with Graphax, but especially from the windream products offered by Graphax and Kinetic in Switzerland."
Beat Oberholzer, head of the solutions department at Graphax AG, adds, "The hard- and software solutions offered by windream and Konica Minolta are leading in terms of performance and functions. Especially the windream solution bizhub connect will help us to open up new market segments in the sector of combined and highly integrated ECM solutions."
