Snap goes platinum with Konica Minolta
Printing franchise giant Snap Print & Design has inked an exclusive platinum partnership deal with Konica Minolta.
Snap approached Konica Minolta to make the deal, which aims to provide its franchise businesses with enhanced printing technology and services.
According to Sue Threlfo, general manager for production and industrial print at Konica Minolta, the partnership will provide approximately 147 stores around Australia with access to high-quality print services as well as support for business growth.
“Snap Print & Design’s decision to partner with Konica Minolta is a testament to our technology, services and strengths, and we’re delighted to enter this platinum partnership. This partnership will ensure that Konica Minolta’s print and business services are highly accessible to Snap franchisees, with an emphasis on helping them enhance customer experiences and growth.
“Knowing that Konica Minolta has been endorsed by Snap Print & Design’s head office offers franchisees significant peace of mind when it comes to finding and choosing digital print solutions and business support, and knowing that due diligence has been done, particularly in the current volatile franchise business market. It’s important Snap franchisees are aware of the opportunities and services available to them from Konica Minolta,” she said.
Ian Tagliabue, procurement manager at Snap Print & Design, said the partnership will see Snap’s franchisees work directly with Konica Minolta to source technology, education, and support for business growth.
“Through this partnership, Snap Print & Design will be able to connect its franchisees with the right Konica Minolta equipment and technology. During the last year, inline finishing capability made up the majority of printer sales to the network.
“With speed to market being a major focus with our franchisees, Konica Minolta has been able to develop packages to fit individual stores and their customers,” he said.
