Innovation is at the heart of all we do. Over the last 140 years, we’ve continually pushed the boundaries of technology, creating revolutionary products and services that boost our customers’ businesses.

Innovation is not an intangible concept. It’s a core business function that needs to be driven on a global scale, which is why we founded five Business Innovation Centres (BICs) across the world.

Our BICs are home to our teams that passionately work on the entire lifecycle of new business development – from ideation to implementation. Their mission is to gain a deeper understanding of our regional customers’ needs and deliver the greatest value by anticipating them.

Whitepaper: Transforming workplaces & workspaces (6.4MB)

In collaboration with our Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe (KMLE), we carry out extensive research in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), smart data, computer vision, augmented reality (AR), wearables, advanced user interaction, Internet of Things (IoT) and networking. The aim? To develop innovative solutions for the future.

Seizing the merits of open development

We also innovate in collaboration with a diverse range of entities, such as academic institutes, research institutes, partner companies and start-ups. That means the BICs serve as hubs for a global innovation network that connects great ideas in new ways, turns new ideas into successful products – and helps to bring established products into new markets.

This open and collaborative approach is helping to positively shape daily life and professional workplaces of the future.

Whitepaper: The genius of things (200KB)

Connection, collaboration and co-creation are the three pillars of our innovation strategy. And it’s through building partnerships and driving co-innovation that we are ‘thinking up new things’ and ‘doing new things’. Innovation for us is ultimately about working in partnership with our customers to bring to life innovations that meet their true needs.
