Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces that it has been awarded first place in the 2013 Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index® (CLEI) in the "MFP Office Copier" category for the sixth consecutive year. New York-based marketing consultancy Brand Keys publishes its annual Customer Loyalty Engagement Index to determine how different brands rank in customer loyalty according to 39,000 Americans surveyed. The 2013 Index examined customers’ relationships with brands in 54 product categories.

The Brand Keys methodology, which considers several key competitors, asked customers to characterize their ideal product in the MFP Office Copier category, setting the standard for excellence. The 2013 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.

"The Brand Keys recognition continues to be among the most highly valued for us as we are committed to ensuring customers can count on Konica Minolta for innovative and reliable document management solutions," says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “We are proud to be among the most distinguished in our industry and we look forward to continuing this success in the years to come.”

“We offer our congratulations to Konica Minolta again this year. They've continued to build their brand, and to meaningfully differentiate themselves in the marketplace. Their success in the B2B sector is based entirely on their success in creating real levels of emotional engagement between their brand and the customer, an increasingly more difficult proposition,” says Robert Passikoff, Founder and President, Brand Keys.
