The "BERTL's Best" award has been recognizing the best recently launched digital imaging devices, software, and product lines each year since 1995. The categories are based on desktop, workgroup, departmental, and production work environments. BERTL's analysts identify and select devices and software that stand apart from the others. Keeping with the times and the demands of its end users BERTL left behind simple speed and feed productivity, artificial reliability tests, and theoretical SRP pricing lists to focus instead on user and business dynamics when selecting the "Best of the Best."

“BERTL’s analysts were extremely impressed with the bizhub PRESS series as it is evident that Konica Minolta has placed a clear focus on delivering image quality, durability, flexibility and high-volume capability with the introduction of the bizhub PRESS C8000 and C7000”, said Art Wynne, President, BERTL Inc. “The series is modular and can be customized in a variety of ways making it adaptable to the needs of a variety of businesses in matching their space and volume requirements. Our thorough testing demonstrated that both the bizhub PRESS C8000 and C7000 have the ability to handle a large variety of stocks and the capacity to deliver remarkable, exuberant colors.”

This is the third time this year that Konica Minolta has received accolades from BERTL on behalf of the bizhub PRESS product line-up. The bizhub PRESS C8000 Colour Digital Presses received BERTL’s “Exceptional 5-Star Rating” helping to position the system as the must-have colour digital press for the production print marketplace.
