UK cloud printing and management use “soars”

UK cloud printing and management use “soars”

May 14, 2015

cloudResearch from MPS software company Annodata reported on UK research that “shows increased take-up” of cloud print solutions.

The study from the Cloud Industry Forum revealed that the proportion of UK-based organisations using cloud services for “print and file management” has “increased by almost half since 2014”, and Annodata noted that “the results confirm the mounting interest in cloud-based printing amongst UK businesses”, thanks to “the promise of reduced costs, streamlined document and print management systems, and improved efficiencies”.

250 IT decision makers were surveyed, with 28 percent noting that their organisations have a “file and print management service” hosted in the cloud, an increase from 19 percent in the same survey last year. 16 percent plan to implement cloud services “in the future”, and the proportion of companies using cloud technology for document management “has increased from 30 percent in 2015 to 38 percent today”.

Joe Doyle, Marketing Director at Annodata, said of the results: “Cloud-based solutions have been part of the IT estate for quite some time, and it’s clear that organisations have become much more comfortable with the deployment model. But it’s only really now that we are seeing cloud print and document management take off.

“This holds true for organisations of all sizes, but particularly for those in the mid-market, who arguably stand to benefit the most from this kind of approach to print management. With sprawling and inefficient print estates, that often consist of hundreds of different devices, cloud-based print and file management solutions offer the opportunity to control costs and rebuild from the ground up, incorporating new efficiencies and easing the burden on the IT department.”

He added: “For all the talk of the paperless office, the printed page shows no sign of going away and is, for a significant proportion of businesses, critical for day-to-day operations. But the fact is that no one really knows what the next year will bring, let alone the next five years, so investing in agile technology solutions is critical.

“Cloud-based MPS, which can scale both up and down in line with business demands, allows businesses to remain agile and maintain competitive advantage, unencumbered by unnecessary print resources and free of the time needed to manage them.”
