Ramsey, N.J. and Alexandria, Va. –  March 31, 2015 Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces that Meridian Imaging Solutions of Alexandria, VA has been honored with a 2015 Pro-Tech Service Award at the Art of Disruption Dealer Conference in Los Angeles. Presented by Konica Minolta CEO, Tom Taiko, President and COO Rick Taylor and EVP, Dealer Sales, Alan Nielsen, the Pro-Tech Award recognizes those Konica Minolta dealerships that demonstrate the highest commitment to customer support and satisfaction.

As a Pro-Tech Service Award winner for a second year in a row, Meridian Imaging Solutions, headed by Matt Williams, President/COO and Terri Sullivan, Founder/Chair of the Board, is dedicated to delivering professional, reliable service and maximum performance for Konica Minolta’s award-winning solutions. To attain the Pro-Tech standard, each element of Meridian’s operation was evaluated and measured, including its management skills, inventory control systems, technical expertise, dispatch systems and customer satisfaction ratings.

Meridian VP, Major Account Sales, Juliana McKee explained what receiving the KM Pro-Tech Award means for Meridian and its clients:

“The Pro-Tech Service Award sets us apart from our competition. In today’s fast-paced world, we are seeing more of our customers focusing on quality of service. Meridian is the only Konica Minolta Pro-Tech Service certified entity in the Washington DC metro area, and one of fewer than 70 in the entire US.

“What does this mean for our customers? Meridian can proactively manage their Konica Minolta equipment. Not only can we automate the process of monitoring supply levels, such as toners, which many software products do, but the Pro-Tech service award allows us to offer bizhub V-Care to our customers at no charge. V-Care automatically alerts our service department before a part or a consumable actually fails or runs out. Our customers are continually amazed by the fact that we show up prior to the machine failing, and without a call from them — that’s the Meridian Pro-Tech difference.

“Customer service is Meridian’s foundation, and this award reinforces that. We pride ourselves on making our customers’ lives easier so they can focus on their core business and we can focus on keeping their technology running.
