IDC’s new report Worldwide and U.S. Device and Print Management Market Shares, 2016: Navigating an Evolving Market identifies Nuance Communications as market leader for the third year in a row.
Nuance’s portfolio of print management solutions, which includes Equitrac, Output Manager and Safecom, addresses device security and authentication; hardware fleet optimisation; consumables cost reduction; and network infrastructure.
Allison Correia, IDC Senior Research Analyst, Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions, said: “Nuance Communications continues to be the leader in the device and print management market with a portfolio that serves the SMB customer up to enterprise. Nuance’s multi-platform coverage is attractive for end users and OEM resellers alike because often midsize and enterprise businesses have mixed fleets and need scalability and high availability.”
She added: “Nuance is benefiting from new vendor reseller relationships with Brother, OKI Data and Epson. With the opportunity of managed print services (MPS) growing in the SMB market, Nuance is also putting efforts together to package more solutions to target SMBs, enabling an easier selling motion for channel partners.”
