IDC PeerScape: Practices to Implement "Smart" MFPs in the Print Environment
This IDC PeerScape presents four organizational practices for smart MFPs in select document-intensive environments. Copy, print, scan, and fax remain essential. However, these examples illustrate how a broader document management and workflow orientation to the MFP is increasingly becoming a critical component of this solution.
"Customers should think beyond copy, print, fax, and scan when it comes to the organizational procurement and use of MFPs. The MFP will serve as the foundation for a total office document and workflow processing tool enabled through an ecosystem of solutions and services. Smart MFPs will be that critical document management and workflow component that adds significant value for those who adopt this mindset," said Keith Kmetz, vice president of IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions programs.
