Putting print at the heart of information management
In its report, ‘Western Europe MPDS and BPS Market Shares, 2017: Accelerated Technology Development Driving Greater Contractualized Business Revenues’, IDC recognises “Canon’s long heritage in the document imaging and printing business and the company’s portfolio, market innovation, and operational excellence to build its print services business” and acknowledges its capabilities, saying: “Canon emphasizes digital transformation with a focus on driving greater workflow delivery capabilities to clients, aiding them in solving some of the biggest business challenges associated with managing information, in both paper and electronic form. Canon has expanded its workflow solution offerings through greater emphasis on optimizing business processes and providing continuous improvement and providing solutions and service delivery in Europe, as it does across the globe.”
In a clear reflection of Canon’s ongoing commitment to offer its customers the best solutions, specific to their own business needs IDC also praised “Canon's value proposition [that] derives from the company's ability to provide imaging, capture, and output hardware that covers the full spectrum of users and combine it with scalable software and technology for solutions that can serve organizations ranging from small businesses up to multinational enterprise accounts.

It’s a fascinating time for managed print and document services. In today’s data-led world, hard copy and electronic documents (and the information contained within them) are integral to effective business operations. But with data volumes rising rapidly, the cost of efficiently managing and maintaining modern information sets is a real challenge. What’s more, there is an expectation today that the data held by businesses should be informing smarter and more efficient ways of working, powering greater customer insights or helping drive future innovation.
In the ever-changing world of document and information management, Canon is continuing to develop its consistent Managed Print Services offerings to meet the growing demands of offices and Central Reprographic Departments, including multi-site, multi-national, multi-regional and Global environments regionally and across the globe.
