Bizhub Printing community established

Konica Minolta is sponsoring an independent European user group, called Prokom, for owners of its Bizhub production printers. The aim is to provide a forum where they can share business ideas and experiences to build and profitably expand their businesses.
Naturally Konica Minolta will also use this to communicate better with customers, particularly to learn of their priorities for future product design and the services they expect from the company.
Andy Barber, General Manager of imail, UK Mail, who is Prokom’s  first chairman, said: “I want to thank the management of Konica Minolta for giving us the opportunity to form Prokom, which is a great platform for members to express our ‘voice of the customer’ and will provide many opportunities to learn, to share and represent our interests to further enable us to grow. As somebody who is a regular speaker at industry conferences, I know how important it is to share relevant information with and learn from fellow professionals.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
