According to the Quocirca Global Print 2025 Report: 49% of survey respondents stated that they have already deployed cloud for print management. Followed up by 73% of organisations expect to transition to cloud print management by 2025. This clearly shows that as the long-term effects of the pandemic become clear, businesses are taking a strategic view towards the future workplace and the services and technology required to support a hybrid workforce.
Here are some of the reasons why businesses are making the switch:
Moving to a cloud-based subscription model avoids capital expenditure and lowers operating costs associated with traditional on premise print management platforms.
A cloud print infrastructure is managed by a third-party provider, such as Principal, leaving IT teams able to focus on more strategic activities.
Cloud print platforms enable convenient anywhere, anytime, any device printing for mobile workers. Print jobs can be released from any print device through secure user authentication.
New functionality can be rapidly implemented either for all users or for a subset of them. It can also better support the rapid delivery of other associated solutions or initiatives such as digitisation, security and analytics.
