Katsuhisa Asari, Managing Director, Konica Minolta India

Konica Minolta is enhancing its range of office applications by introducing Dispatcher Paragon, a comprehensive solution that allows for centralized print administration. This software not only offers user and cost management capabilities but also ensures the highest level of safety, the company says. 

Dispatcher Paragon is a private cloud software solution that is ideal for businesses seeking to optimize productivity and efficiency in their print infrastructure. Its modular design enables it to cater to the requirements of companies of all sizes and industries, ranging from small privately-owned businesses to large global enterprises and educational institutions.

With the Dispatcher Paragon print management solution, customers gain the ability to centrally manage their entire print infrastructure, resulting in cost reduction. What sets this solution apart is its unique and user-friendly web 2.0 administration interface, which can be customized to meet specific needs. This interface greatly simplifies the daily tasks of IT Administrators. 

Additionally, the centrally installed office solution allows users to release print jobs from any device, anywhere in the world, within the network. All print data is collected and accounted for centrally, ensuring efficient tracking. Furthermore, the solution supports mobile printing, enabling users to submit print jobs conveniently while on the go.

The new print management solution offers a range of advantages, including maximum efficiency, time savings, and increased productivity. To prioritize security, this solution strictly limits access to authorized users for tasks such as printing, copying, and scanning. Additionally, it allows for the assignment of specific rights to individual users based on their needs or job roles. By doing so, Dispatcher Paragon effectively prevents security breaches and ensures comprehensive protection of sensitive data and information at all times.

To effectively manage costs, it is crucial to closely monitor all print, copy, and scan operations within an organization. Dispatcher Paragon offers the perfect solution for this, along with a wide range of detailed reports that assist in optimizing the print environment. For environmentally conscious companies, there are specific green reports available. These reports showcase how Dispatcher Paragon contributes to reducing paper waste, toner usage, and energy consumption. They also quantify the natural resources saved, highlighting the positive impact on the environment. Additionally, for institutions that require print services to be charged, Dispatcher Paragon provides a comprehensive payment system. This system includes online and offline options, as well as automatic recharging of user accounts, ensuring enhanced convenience for customers.

Commenting on the launch, Katsuhisa Asari, Managing director, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India, said, “Dispatcher Paragon is a highly adaptable and scalable print management solution that offers intuitive functionality. Its extensive range of features caters to various enterprise requirements, including print security, centralized print management, user access rights, comprehensive reporting, and even charge-back or project billing for specific users or departments. The modular and feature-based licensing structure makes it an ideal choice for customers seeking an advanced print management solution that can be tailored to their specific needs.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
