According to a fascinating Analysis piece in this issue of our e-Newsletter (‘Smart MFPS on the rise), barely a third of European companies are planning for a ‘digital world’ - despite more and more businesses having increasingly data intensive processes. This leaves the remaining two thirds at risk of falling behind the competition and missing out on the potential to make important time and productivity savings - as well as leaving them open to ever growing security concerns.

The research quoted in the article suggests that many companies would like to digitise documents to reduce physical storage in premium office or offsite spaces, and according to Oki’s Tetsuya Kuri, this is increasingly being addressed by what he describes as ‘smart MFPs’ rather than dedicated scanning devices. As Kuri says: “Key features that a smart MFP brings to firms that are actively looking to increase document digitisation include the ability to scan direct to email, to a specified folder that may be on a network or cloud-based for further utilisation or archival. This makes the devices well-suited to the 66% of European companies which identify the ability to have archived documents in a single location as a key benefit of automating business processes.”

Does this suggest a move away from dedicated scanners in the workplace? We’d be interested to hear your views, as ever – feel free to message me at the email address below.
