~ PowerPack programme offers customers a broad assortment of complementary services and programs ~

Staines, UK – 24th March 2006 Konica Minolta Printing Solutions today announced the launch of its European customer loyalty programme, the Konica Minolta PowerPack.

PowerPack will deliver value to Konica Minolta customers by offering an extensive range of services and programmes free of charge. It has been designed to enhance users’ printing experience and increase customer satisfaction. Starting immediately, it will first be offered to customers that have recently purchased a magicolor 2450 or 5400 series printer. Customers can simply register online at www.konicaminolta-powerpack.com within 30 days of purchasing the printer.

After registration, customers have access to the following benefits:

Extended warranty: Up to three years
Customers can extend their printer’s warranty up to three years by returning their original cartridges free of charge via the Konica Minolta Clean Planet program. By rewarding customers for recycling their empty toner cartridges, Konica Minolta is actively pursuing its role as an environmental leader.

Guaranteed return value on their replacement printer After three years, customers can trade in their Konica Minolta printer and receive a discount on their replacement printer. This not only delivers significant cost savings but also provides an attractive way to upgrade to the latest technology.

Discount on bundled options
Customers can benefit from discounts (up to 75%) on bundled options when purchasing a pre-configured model, thereby making large savings on supplementary paper trays and duplexers to increase efficiency and flexibility.

Free product training and software
PowerPack customers have access to an online product tutorial with in depth information on how to maximise the use of their printer. Free software can be downloaded after registration to enable them to generate templates for a wide variety of printouts.

“Konica Minolta is recognized for offering products that provide high quality at an attractive price. Now, more than ever, customers are looking for the best option when purchasing a printer. The PowerPack adds value that goes beyond the product by rewarding customers with additional services and programs that they appreciate the most” said Frank Akihary, General Manager, Sales and Marketing EMEA at Konica Minolta.
