Cloud-connected Printer and MFP Apps
One way vendors are responding to the trends of cloud computing and mobile apps is by offering apps and cloud connectivity from their printers and MFPs. While there is significant variation in the types of apps being provided, their installation process, and their cost, InfoTrends is seeing a greater manufacturer focus on adding value to the print device, providing cloud support, and enhancing the usability of the printer touchscreen and its applications. InfoTrends believes this is a necessary step to try and keep the print device relevant at the heart of the office workflow.
As these types of offerings are still relatively new, vendors continue to try and determine the optimum way to transition the printer and MFPs into the apps and cloud world. This report reviews the major apps and cloud connectors being offered by vendor, and provides recommendations on how vendors can best enhance these offerings with the goal of driving customer adoption and usage; consequently, extending the relevance of the office print device.

Is Inkjet Printing Technology Ready to Transform the U.S. Office Printing Environment
In recent years, business inkjet printers and multifunctional peripherals (MFPs) have surpassed laser devices in the U.S. as the leading technology by unit shipment volume. In fact, InfoTrends estimates that business inkjet will represent 56% of all devices by 2016, compared to 44% for laser. For many years, the prevailing sentiment among many in the industry was that customers believe laser devices are most appropriate for workgroup office use, whereas inkjet technology is best suited to the home and small business environments. This has been further reinforced by myriad news reports emphasizing the negative aspects of inkjet printers-particularly when it comes to running costs and ink pricing. Against this backdrop, vendor interest in promoting business inkjet product offerings has advanced. As a result, vendors such as Brother, HP, Memjet, and Xerox have developed business inkjet devices with improved speed and capability that are clearly designed for workgroups within business environments. It is the purpose of this primary research document to aid vendors with the second part of this process-the critical sales and marketing decisions in the U.S. market.
