The research company Quocirca, surveyed 300 IT Managers in the UK, France, Germany and US and their Landscape Report highlights a growing demand for MPS as IT Managers continue to address the inefficiencies and cost of document workflows in these uncertain times.

  • 79% anticipate increasing MPS spend in the next 12 months, with 27% planning a significant increase;
  • 50% say printing is still very important to their business
  • 72% have not fully achieved consumables cost reduction objectives
  • 71% have not fully realised environmental impact reduction objectives
  • 63% say they are in the optimisation phase of MPS deployment, focused on delivering workflow tools to improve business processes
  • 37% say MPS is very important to digital transformation – up from 23% in 2018; and
  • 84% say embedded MFP apps are useful for integrating paper digital workflows.

Research Director Louella Fernandes said: “The fundamental driver of MPS is cost reduction and this has still not been fully realised by the majority of organisations due to their enduring reliance on print.”
