Pursuing the mission of “Driving Business Innovation”, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong is committed to continuously innovate and extend new frontiers that help businesses grow.
At FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong, we aim to accelerate business growth by equipping our customers with the freedom to work smarter and more secure, anytime and anywhere. Therefore, we launched six innovative products, namely the ApeosPort C7070 / 5570 / C2560 / 3560 series and ApeosPort-VII 5021 / C4421 series, in June 2020.
The new products offer 360° data security to combat significant threats during the information management lifecycle, covering document creation, access rights for document sharing both internally and externally, and potential backup plans for all scanned documents to ensure business continuity. With the real-time predictive device management, potential faults can be anticipated and avoided, thus improving the overall printer effectiveness and reducing unexpected downtime. The redesigned User Interface (UI) encompasses advanced features, including an easy-to-use address book and one-touch applications. Users can also customise the workflow with familiar gestures of tapping, swiping and selecting, as well as other features. Supporting the concept of borderless workspaces, users can use the smartphone as a portable UI panel and set the job parameters remotely. They can start the job just by holding the smartphone near the Near Field Communication touch area, significantly reducing the wait time.

In November 2020, we launched two new production printer models: Versant® 3100i Press and Versant® 180i Press at the “Unveiling the New Building Blocks of Opportunity” event.
The newly developed Air Suction Feeder as an add-on feature helps ensure stable paper feeding. Air is blown inside the tray through the side blower to separate the stacked paper sheets, which are then secured with the suction of the shuttle head using our exclusive technology. Any excessive sheets are separated using an air knife so that the paper can be transported sheet by sheet. The feeder can accommodate thick paper up to 400 g/m2 and long paper up to 330 x 1200 mm (simplex), meaning that challenging paper types can now be processed in a seamless way.
Expanding its long paper printing capabilities, Versant® 3100i Press can print long paper at a speed of 23 pages per minute, improved by 2.5 times compared to its predecessor. As for A4 paper printing, the printer can print 100 pages per minute with 2400 dots per inch (dpi) fine resolution. With its Full Width Array function, the image quality correction process before printing is automated for colour calibration and front and back registration adjustment.
As for Versant® 180i Press, it can print 19 pages of long paper per minute, doubling the speed as compared to its predecessor. For A4 paper printing, the printer can print 80 pages per minute with 2400 dpi fine resolution and automatic image quality correction using the Simple Image Quality Adjustment technology.
With these two new products, users can produce a wider variety of high-quality printed materials, strengthen their on-demand printing capability via automated process checking and correction and boost the productivity of their printing operation.

Since COVID-19 has significantly limited our physical interactions with customers, we have hosted a series of webinars to share the latest business insights into digital transformation.
To show SMEs how they could utilise quick, easy and economical methods to automatically digitalise documents and create a cloud-based file access platform that would help them turn the pandemic crisis into business opportunities.
We discussed the importance of customer centricity with regard to digital platforms, and how organisations were bridging physical experiences and digital platforms with a unified approach to customer communications. We also shared some best practices in outbound digital communications.
Together with speakers from Tech Research Asia, we explored what organisations could do to optimise workplace technologies that would flourish in the new flexible and digital work environment, so as to achieve greater automation and workflow efficiency and to drive returns with opportunities presented by emerging technologies.
During the webinar, we introduced file management solutions suitable for the participants, such as scanning, data recognition and encrypted filing. Insights were shared with participants to plan their budget and equipment needs for 2021, enabling employees to “work from anywhere” in an efficient and secure way.
Sustainability efforts should go beyond reporting and community philanthropic contributions, so businesses should streamline their reporting processes and enhance their internal sustainability communications. Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group, the world leading jewellery group founded 90 years ago, engaged our project team to formulate a long-term sustainability strategy, including a set of goals to be achieved in 10 years. As such, we offered the self-developed iESG 2.0 management tool to help the client strengthen its data governance and key performance management in accordance with the SEHK ESG Reporting Guide. Working closely together, the project team developed a sustainability strategy that reflects the vision, mission and core values of Chow Tai Fook and the UN SDGs. To achieve these goals, four priority areas were identified, including: 1) responsible sourcing, 2) craftsmanship, innovation and technology, 3) resource efficiency and carbon reduction and 4) people focused. Besides, insights from stakeholder engagement initiatives, materiality assessment and data performance were also included in its Sustainability Report 2019.
Using our iESG solution, Chow Tai Fook’s sustainability committee visualised data trends and analysis to help them make informed decisions and understand their progress. The expertise of the project team has also given the company a strong push towards its sustainability goals.
iESG was adopted to strengthen ESG data governance and key performance management throughout Chow Tai Fook’s 10-year journey.
