Building Strategic Parnterships with Synergy
In 2008, DocPoint Solutions was established as an interdependent and complementary SharePoint business to QAI in response to the growing number of organizations struggling with storing, accessing and sharing information across the enterprise. By leveraging QAI’s existing knowledge of document management—converting, scanning, classifying and digitizing information—DocPoint could then provide a full range of consultative SharePoint solution services and support to help clients store and share information across the enterprise.
“WITH A BROADER RANGE OF CS, SHAREPOINT AND BUSINESS PROCESS OPTIMIZATION CAPABILITIES, QAI AND DOCPOINT HAVE BECOME AN EVEN MORE STRATEGIC PARTNER TO OUR CLIENTS…”
Although this form of synergy may be nontraditional, the resulting benefits to both customers and partners have caught the attention of many in the industry, including Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta). In September 2016, QAI and DocPoint joined forces with Konica Minolta as part of its expanding ECM practice.
“With a broader range of content services (CS), SharePoint and business process optimization capabilities, QAI and DocPoint have become an even more strategic partner to our clients by being able to offer them expanded and more comprehensive long-term solutions under the Konica Minolta umbrella,” said Mike Ratigan, vice president of sales, DocPoint Solutions.
Now, between QAI’s document imaging solutions, DocPoint’s SharePoint services and Konica Minolta’s nationwide ECM practice, clients have a single resource for everything that is document management. Before any organization can modernize, they need a comprehensive business process optimization strategy for taking physical paper content and designing a day-forward process. This is where QAI, along with Konica Minolta’s multi-function devices extend our offering by focusing on content. From there, DocPoint helps businesses ingest this content and create a SharePoint environment that fosters collaboration, increases efficiency and solves business challenges. This synergy takes the client from paper-to-cloud while keeping it all within the Konica Minolta system solution.
