On October 24th I was invited to the new product presentation of  Konica Minolta in Barcelona.

At the end of the introductory session we were had a pleasant surprise: a session of African drums led by 3 Africans and followed by all the assistants. It was really fun to see a all the executives and middle-aged men dressed in suits and ties playing the drum like crazy. (In the end I attach a video)

The novelty is that Konica’s professional printing services can now offer embossed prints without requiring large quantities, that is, starting from one unit.

Web user interface for ordering prints within the company.

It is a web environment from which an employee of a large company or institution can order business cards, brochures, bookbinders, etc. It is an internal virtual store. It allows a flow of approval of costs by the superior and an exact control of the work done by the reproduction center. The recipient of the order can be an internal reprography center or an external company.
