- A modern, streamlined interface with consolidated navigation so that users can easily find and purchase apps and licenses. Featured apps are highlighted on the Home Page, and all apps can be sorted based on category or filtered based on keyword.
- Support for single stream billing to provide a unified, comprehensive billing experience consistent with the rest of Konica Minolta product offerings.
- Simplified account creation to allow first-time users quick access to MarketPlace offerings.
- Optimized operations for installing apps and custom MFP UIs, managing devices, managing operations, and much more, along with easily accessible online help to ensure key information is readily available.
- A new purchasing experience with more options. The new MarketPlace can now support selling a greater variety of products with additional pricing capabilities, such as subscription-based licensing and volume-based discount pricing. These new, expanded purchasing capabilities will allow Konica Minolta to meet our customers’ needs today and in the future.
“The new Konica Minolta MarketPlace is not just a change in brand name, but a significant evolution of this key platform, including a more modern, streamlined look-and-feel, a simplified user experience, and advanced features,” said Manuel Couceiro, Vice President of Konica Minolta’s Solutions Engineering Center. “This new platform is in line with the future-ready goals and unified direction of our company as we continue to create a better workplace for today and tomorrow.”
