The OEM has seen a 40 per cent year-on-year increase in unit sales and hopes that by extending its existing relationship with Exertis who will now distribute the WorkForce Pro range, it can via the reseller channel continue to grow its market share even further.
In other news, Lexmark has furthered its relationship with Nuance Communications, Chris Strammiello, Worldwide Marketing and Global Alliances Director for Nuance’s Document Imaging Division, explains how channel resellers are set to benefit from the evolving print ecosystem (page 20). Although GDPR is still some way away, it is an issue that should be very much front of mind. Midshire’s John Kay, warns that GDPR will affect every UK organisation that processes the personal data of EU residents. He said that he believes the uncertainty of Brexit has caused many businesses to take their foot off the gas when it comes to EU Parliamentary law, but really businesses should be striving to keep up-to-date with the latest policies. The company recently teamed up with Gemalto to run a GDPR Clinic, giving organisations concerned about data protection an opportunity to brush up on the new regulations, and learn about how the changes might require them to refresh their internal policies.
