(Weymouth, MA) April 13, 2005…In a new research study entitled The Future of the Document in the Workgroup Environment, InfoTrends/CAP Ventures analysts examine the changing dynamics of the office document and its impact on customer requirements and usage patterns.
“We are working in an increasingly connected and digital environment, we have moved into a virtual and collaborative workplace, where the office workflow and information processing is becoming central to defining the total product solution,” commented Rick Clayton, a Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. “Manufacturers need to be aware of these trends and offer the products and solutions that will accommodate the changing needs of the market.”
As the number of documents that are placed on the network continues to increase, the demand for solutions that help manage and control the process will become of paramount importance to end-users as well as overall organizations. This means that sales organizations must be proactive in accessing, recommending, and implementing robust solutions that create added value for various hardware devices.
