Western European Multifunction Printers Shipments Strengthen

Western European printer and multifunction (MFP) markets continued to show strong growth, with Q2 2014 increasing 5.0% compared to the same period a year ago, according to the latest Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker from IDC. This resulted in a Q2 2014 market figure of 4.92 million units, with growth of more than 234,000 units. There were many positive growth areas, with notable increases in colour laser and inkjet markets, but monochrome laser markets contracted as the move to colour products continues.

The Future of Scanning

The Future of Scanning: 2D Imaging Technology
Scanning technology has undergone unprecedented innovation in the past two to three years, with 2D imaging now the fastest growing type of data capture technology. While the scanning market as a whole has grown 8%, the 2D imaging technology market has experienced 20% growth this year alone.

The surge in popularity of imaging represents a tremendous role reversal compared to the recent past, when laser-based scanning technologies had an 80% market share. Since 2006, however, imager-based products have steadily outsold laser-based ones.

A cloud vision from the crystal ball

Many enterprises are exploiting the benefits of virtualisation and they are relying on an assumption that costs will go down, management and control of their infrastructure will be easier, and customer services deployment will be quicker.

However, this is not always the case and it has not happened that way in many instances. The integration of technology has often been more complex than companies expected and the end users in the business have been left unable to benefit from any private cloud implementation.

Managed Service Providers ( MSP)

This highly reactive business model fails to deliver the quality of service customers require in today’s 24x7 environment. And, as a result, too many providers are experiencing untenable levels of customer attrition – even as high as 30% a year.

The only way managed services providers can grow the business, stabilise the revenue stream and improve customer retention is to embrace a business model based upon highly integrated remote monitoring and automation.

Outdated, unworkable
Despite exceptional growth in the European managed services market, few organisations are maximising profitability. With an over reliance on customer site visits to carry out both routine and emergency tasks, too many IT services companies are struggling to create a sustainable growth path.
