BURLINGTON, Mass., August 30, 2017 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced it was named market share leader for 2016 among global device and print management vendors by IDC, a leading IT market research and advisory firm. The new IDC report, “Worldwide and U.S. Device and Print Management Market Shares, 2016: Navigating an Evolving Market,” (Doc # US41266017, June 2017) shows Nuance as the number one market share segment provider for the third year in a row.

“Nuance Communications continues to be the leader in the device and print management market,” said Allison Correia, senior research analyst, Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions, IDC. “Nuance has a leading position in the marketplace with a portfolio that serves the SMB customer up to enterprise.
