The imaging industry is going through a dramatic transformation. Printing behavior is changing. Businesses are no longer using printed, copied, faxed, and filed documents as a major method of communication and workflow documentation. The role of paper is undermined by a wide range of developments, including the rapid adoption of smartphones and tablets (led by the iPad) that can serve as alternative viewing devices; new document delivery methods (e-billing, e-statements, and e-signatures rather than paper bills, statements, and contracts); generational change; and even simple economy-driven cost-cutting (often in the form of managed print services). The impact of these developments is now apparent in declining paper consumption, hard copy vendor revenue stagnation or decline, and many other metrics.
This Digital Workflow Transformation Advisory Service™ (DWTAS) provides executives, managers and other planners with objective, deep analysis regarding the rate at which the market is shifting. The service predicts what the likely end points are and new business models arising from the shift.
