Quocirca’s Managed Print Services Landscape, 2014 report stated that the managed print services (MPS) market continues to evolve beyond the core services of device consolidation towards driving improved business efficiency around paper-dependent processes.
The executive summary of the report stated that “companies looking to start or extend their MPS journey should look for an MPS provider that can have a truly transformative business impact. Employees are demanding access to the latest technologies that enable them to work flexibly and productively.
Meanwhile, customer expectations are changing, meaning organisations must interact in more dynamic, agile ways to maintain competitive advantage. This demands a new kind of MPS provider that can tame the complexity of the print infrastructure, removing the IT burden, whilst helping them focus on innovation and employee and customer satisfaction.”
KYOCERA Document South Africa echoes the findings in the Quocirca’s research which says that despite the perception that mobile devices such as tablets may reduce the need for printing, mobility in the government; enterprise and SMMB environments are driving significant changes in the printing and managed document landscape.
Because KYOCERA doesn’t focus on printing alone, but provides a wider service offering with the ultimate goal of not only managing but improving document workflow within business, the offering is broad and adapted to the different needs for government, large corporates and smaller enterprises.
Demand for mobile printing is steadily on the rise, and KYOCERA offers integrated cloud-based mobile print solutions that embrace mobile platform diversity, bringing the same level of security and control to printing that applies to laptops and desktops.
The June 2014 Quocirca report says “Kyocera is emerging as a credible player in the market with its MDS proposition, which is primarily delivered through its dealer network” and nearly a year later the focus continues to be on offering superior managed document solutions.
