Sustainability and the future of print
This report analyses how IT decision-makers who are responsible for or involved in decisions around the print infrastructure are graduating from hazy ambitions for environmental protection to more concrete goals for sustainability that impact their own actions and shape their expectations of suppliers.

Scanning as an enabler for digital transformation
Quocirca undertook research across five different regions, three different verticals and a range of organisation sizes in order to ascertain respondents’ thoughts and perceptions around the need for scanning within their organisation, as well as what they were looking for when seeking out new scanning devices. The research shows that there is a definite gap between user expectations and the realities of the devices chosen – often based on the use of the wrong tool for the job.
