Konica Minolta’s business solutions branch in Australia has been named an OpenText Platinum Partner - the highest possible level of partnership available.
Konica Minolta is a partner in three of five categories: reseller, services and support, and was one of the first platinum partners announced following the launch of OpenText’s new Partner Programme.
The company is also amongst a select group of partners that have committed to maintain up-to-date knowledge of the OpenText solution portfolio for SAP through on-going training and blended delivery of services.
“Platinum is designed for partners who leverage their technology leadership to make significant commitments and investments in customer satisfaction, competency certifications, and revenue growth,” says OpenText.
“Being awarded Platinum partner status is a strong endorsement of the transformation our business has made including the acquisition of two leading IT services companies this year, and the strengthened position of Konica Minolta as a leader in providing enterprise information management services and solutions to our customers.” says Shane Blandford, Konica Minolta director, sales and marketing.
Along with its subsidiary companies Knowledge Partners and Stonebridge Systems, which have also been granted the status of OpenText Platinum Partner, this alliance allows Konica Minolta to provide customers with OpenText solutions and have them implemented by qualified experts.
Lee Gale OpenText VP strategic partners and alliances, says, “Konica Minolta’s subsidiary companies in Australia have a long track record of success and have been recognised with a number of OpenText and industry awards over the years.
“Most recently, Knowledge Partners was awarded Highest Growth Partner of the Year 2015 and OpenText ECM Implementation of the Year 2014, and Stonebridge Systems, OpenText SAP Implementation Partner of the Year in 2014.”
Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia’s Platinum reseller status extends beyond Australia to include Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.
It will play a key part in rolling out OpenText EIM solutions into these geographies. This will include sales, pre-sales and implementation assistance and resourcing, according to the company.
