Individual Efficiency, Team Collaboration and Decision Support
AI services to empower customers to be adaptive and make great decisions
According to several internal research studies, Konica Minolta identified some of the most relevant challenges that threaten the overall wellbeing of employees and their creativity, efficiency and satisfaction within the workplace. Exploiting cognitive services and data analytics, our solutions comprise services for:
- Task management. An augmented intelligent system enables employees to focus on tasks that are more relevant for their company’s overall objectives, rather than on those which they perceive themselves as more urgent.
- Integrated overview of information. Rather than organizing data in multiple folders with the consequent duplication of information, an automated system that focuses on a task-centric approach enables teams and individuals to achieve a more integrated and efficient management of data.
- Information overload coordination. The coordination of many sources of information, including management of documents, emails and chat conversations, will leverage an optimized organization of tasks, and their deadlines and processes and will enable a deeper understanding of the context in which teams and individuals collaborate.
The workplace of the future imagined by Konica Minolta is already becoming reality, and we are committed in playing a key role as a digital workplace solutions provider. To us, this incorporates a digitally connected environment where personalization is enabled, collaboration is improved and data sharing and information management are automated. With Workplace Hub and the next generation of cognitive services that we call Cognitive Hub, we aspire to empower our customers with platforms, services and solutions for them to be flexible, adaptive and become effective decision makers.
At Konica Minolta, we are focusing on AI-enabled platforms to extend the network of human interfaces, to enhance the collaboration amongst individuals and teams, and ultimately to provide them with assistive services that are immediately and automatically actionable. We see AI as the ultimate User Interface, a layer through which customers may access a variety of semantic-based and smart data services that offer the benefits of improved and more efficient ways for working and collaborating. With the ecosystem of solutions of Workplace Hub and our future offerings of cognitive services, we aim at bridging physical and digital worlds.

THE WORKPLACE OF THE FUTURE
Within today’s ‘digital workplace’, there is a growing need for different tools and technologies that support individuals and even more so, supports teams in the achievement of their business goals. These objectives are so frequently reliant upon the interaction and collaboration within the user’s own and external work groups, that seamless management of the communication, exchange, and more importantly obtaining insight from data and information must be facilitated by an organisation’s technology…
