LANGENHAGEN, GERMANY, July 23, 2018 – Konica Minolta, a provider of comprehensive IT services, today announced an agreement with Genpact (NYSE: G), a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, to reimagine sales administration and finance operations in several European countries to drive Konica Minolta’s strategic growth.

Genpact and Konica Minolta will cooperate to create a global business services organization, with Genpact managing Konica Minolta’s sales administration and finance operations in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, and Belgium, including its European headquarters in Langenhagen.

“Genpact’s advanced digital transformation capabilities and process expertise will allow us to continue to provide superior service to our customers, and remain competitive and profitable in a changing industry,” said Johannes Bischof, managing director, Konica Minolta Cluster West. “This agreement plays an important role in our transformation to become a leading IT services provider.”

Genpact and Konica Minolta will work together to create new ways of operating, and will streamline and standardize sales administration and finance processes across the eight countries in scope. The engagement will drive efficiencies that increase earnings potential for Konica Minolta’s core businesses, and allow the company to redirect savings to deliver more innovative IT services and related products.

“As the markets continue to transform, companies need to innovate and identify new business services to remain competitive,” said Patrick Cogny, global business leader, Hi-Tech, Manufacturing, and Services, at Genpact. “We look forward to supporting Konica Minolta’s growth strategy, leveraging our deep domain and process expertise, including products and services powered by our Genpact Cora platform, to uncover new ways to drive profitability and deliver significant value to Konica Minolta’s customers.”
