6 Trends that will Redefine the Print Industry in 2019
The enterprise print industry continues to be changed by the digital disruption of the workplace. Despite printing being less common place than it once was, Quocirca’s Global Print 2025 study revealed that in 2017, 76% of SMBs rely on print and 66% believe they will remain reliant on print in 2025.
Hidden Costs of Printing – How Much Are You Spending?
Organizations are constantly striving to run more efficiently, cut costs, and increase employee workflow. However, one area that is frequently overlooked is the office printing environment, which can be a huge barrier to achieving efficiency and cutting costs.
Printing has become a large hidden cost that organizations can no longer afford to ignore. With an uncontrolled printing environment, companies risk losing their business thousands of dollars each year in waste and inefficiencies.
Digital Transformation Printing Challenges in a MPS Environment
Let’s face it: printing is not the most glamorous topic in the IT landscape. It’s not particularly inspiring or exciting when listed next to things like hyper-convergence, cloud computing, and digital transformation. Any IT manager will tell you how difficult it is to gather volunteers to handle the dreaded “print project”, and adding it to a meeting agenda can clear a board room pretty quickly.
In short, no sane IT professional wants to spend their days on printing, and so senior IT managers will often bring in Print Vendors to tackle the problem on their behalf. Then, after signing a 3-5 year Managed Print Service (MPS) contract with a print vendor, the expectation is that all of the organizations print issues will magically disappear. Unfortunately, this is usually a pipe dream.
