SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 7th August 2017 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions Asia (BSA), an integral value provider with customer-centric solutions and Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions, have signed a collaboration agreement to help companies improve business processes and the exchange of business-related documents.
From information management to technology enabling tools, Konica Minolta’s solutions help organisations boost productivity, support mobility, and enhance collaboration. Esker’s cloud-based solutions help customers manage their cash flow more efficiently by reducing processing time and costs, and automating time-intensive manual pains of traditional processing using agile methodology.
“A key challenge that many firms face today is the time-consuming manual workflow of traditional processing methods, which typically result in longer lead times to close business deals”, said Mr Jonathan Yeo, General Manager, Konica Minolta BSA. “In particular, the sheer print quantity and the numerous steps involved in the manual process, including matching, verification and retrieving, makes the chances for clerical errors high.”
Mr Yeo added: “Konica Minolta’s ITS portfolio helps customers optimise business processes, facilitate, manage and effectively use information. In partnership with Esker, it will add value to our customers’ processes by integrating digital workflow to achieve optimised productivity while empowering key stakeholders with access to valuable data. Together with Esker, we have implemented the solutions for two customers in Singapore.”
“Esker help thousands of companies around the world eliminate manual processing and automate their order-to-cash and purchase-to-pay processes while providing 100% visibility and control in their end-to-end business processes. This directly translates into cost savings and improving customer and supplier relationships. Together with Konica Minolta’s ITS portfolio, we believe we can help even more businesses move toward automation.” said Albert Leong, Managing Director, Esker Asia.
