Print Vendors Respond to COVID-19 Call to Action
This IDC Market Presentation looks at how vendors traditionally associated with the imaging and printing markets are harnessing their expertise in innovation and manufacturing to make critical machine parts and protection products to assist in the fight against COVID-19. Others, via their medical divisions, are confronting the virus head-on by providing testing equipment and even developing potential curative treatment. Most of these print vendors are already helping their core business partners and customers navigate the crisis by providing crucial office print-related commercial, IT, and financial support. With the future of the work never so unsure, print vendors must take the opportunity to show the depth and breadth of their capability suites from 2D and 3D printing through manufacturing and medical applications. In addition, a dedicated commitment to CSR actions and initiatives during the crisis will be long remembered in the collective memory, potentially resulting in new revenue streams.
