Vendor Landscape: Multifunction Printers

Making an informed decision about your MFP requires an analysis of all the "fax."

  • Enterprises that integrate printing functionality into their overall workflow processes are achieving higher levels of user satisfaction and increased cost effectiveness.
  • The MFP market is highly commoditized, making it difficult to differentiate vendor products and functionality. Without knowledge of this space, enterprises run the risk of choosing a less optimal vendor and solution for their requirements.
  • Enterprises should consider emerging trends such as BYOD and Green IT before choosing a product and vendor.

  • A careful evaluation of the MFP space will lead to enhanced functionality, smoother integration, improved user satisfaction, and cost effectiveness.
