Many companies today would like to exert more control over their printing environments as a way to eliminate waste, reduce costs, and even increase security. Yet, a recent survey from Quocirca, an independent research and analyst firm, shows that a surprisingly low number of companies are currently using print management tools to achieve these goals.

For example, when it comes to deploying print management solutions, 89% of respondents indicated that a print management solution would be useful to track and manage print costs. Yet just 15% reported that they have a centralized system that can monitor print activity on all devices, and worse, only 3% are satisfied with their current level of visibility.1

To take an optimistic perspective, this challenge also represents a significant business opportunity. According to research conducted by Nuance Communications, those organizations that implement a print management solution and actively manage their overall printing efforts can reduce recurring spending on document output by 10-30%.
