bEST Technology Suite

bEST Overview

bEST brings the power of the PC directly to your Konica Minolta multi-functional product (MFP)! The bizhub Extended Solution Technology (bEST) program enables a seamless interface between Konica Minolta's bizhub, AccurioPrint, and AccurioPress MFPs and connected software applications residing on a PC or server. The customized solution developed using the bEST technology offerings (PCL, PS, SDK, web browser, etc.), can include applications for print management, cost control, and networking, all accessed directly from the MFP control panel!

bEST is an integral part of Konica Minolta OP (Open Platform), a system which makes Konica Minolta's bizhub, AccurioPrint, and AccurioPress MFPs more accessible for customers and developers. This concept marries our products to external software applications for a seamlessly connected customer solution.
