  • Managed Print Services Landscape, 2015

    The managed print services market continues to gain momentum as enterprises seek to tackle escalating print costs and drive greater business efficiency. The market is relatively buoyant with 51% of organisations (either already using or planning to use Managed Print Services) indicating they plan to increase expenditure on MPS over the next year. Whilst broader workflow solutions are proving to be a significant differentiator, service delivery remains a key MPS market driver. This report from analyst group Quocirca argues that continued investment to drive enhanced service performance through predictive analytics and a focus on consistent delivery through integrated back-end platforms is ultimately what sets the leading providers apart.
