Konica Minolta Introduces ALICE Receptionist

Meet ALICE Receptionist. Your new receptionist. She greets and interacts with visitors when they enter your lobby. But ALICE is different—she’s a virtual visitor management system like no other. ALICE uses a touch screen and live video technology to directly connect visitors with your employees, greeting them and notifying staff when a visitor enters your office space. Much more than a computerized receptionist, ALICE ensures you’re providing a consistent customer service experience for guests and improved security for your office— while saving money by forgoing a full-time staff member to manage your front desk.

ALICE is just one of the ways Konica Minolta is reshaping the Workplace of the Future™, helping you work smarter, more productively, and more collaboratively.
Giving shape to ideas that will reinvent the way organizations work today — and tomorrow.
