Each year New York-based marketing consultancy Brand Keys publishes its Customer Loyalty Engagement Index, which surveys more than 33,500 adult Americans to determine how brands rank in customer loyalty. The 2010 Index examined customers' relationships with 518 brands in 71 categories. Other winning brands for 2010 include Apple, Google, JetBlue, and McDonald’s.

The Brand Keys methodology, which considered several competitors, asked customers to characterize their perfect product in the MFP Office Copier category, setting the standard for excellence. The 2010 Brand Keys research once again identified Konica Minolta as a leading brand for customer loyalty in the "MFP Office Copier" category when measured against the "Ideal" office copier.
