IDC's white paper "Are your business processes stifling your market opportunity? Cost-efficient print and document management through smart MFPs" highlights the need for workflow improvements with SMBs as they respond to changing business needs, the evolving IT agenda and new market opportunities.
The white paper includes the following key findings from IDC:
- Just 1 in 3 businesses are actively planning for a digital world to reduce physical storage and improve employee efficiency – meaning two-thirds may miss out on important time and productivity savings.
- 75% of the Western European workforce will be mobile. To stay productive and benefit from the world of mobile working, today’s businesses need the tools to process and digitise documents remotely and provide access to accurate information.
- Businesses experience a 20% loss in productivity each year due to document-related challenges – the equivalent to over two working months each year.
- A massive 75% of businesses currently have no document security in place despite the increasing number of corporate data security breaches that continue to hit the headlines.
IDC concludes that smart MFPs have the potential to act as a platform for growth by providing cost and time-efficient workflow solutions that improve compliance and security while supporting key business objectives such as mobility, along with cost-cutting initiatives. In this regard, they have the potential to help redefine how day-to-day business workflow is performed.
