<p>Burlington, Mass. - October 4, 2010 - Managed Print Services (MPS) is fast becoming the premier business model for the imaging and printing industry. To date, most of the MPS focus has been on the proactive management and ongoing optimization of the printing and imaging environment at end-user organizations.</p> <p>As benefits from those initiatives are realized, MPS providers will strive to achieve continuous cost reductions and productivity improvements - and expand their approach to MPS. They will broaden MPS strategies to also include document capture, expanding from just hardcopy infrastructure to businesscritical document workflows – involving both paper and digital documents.</p> <p>“MPS strategies will evolve from just device consolidation and print optimization to also include business process optimization,” said Bill DeStefanis, Senior Manager, MFP Product Management, Nuance Document Imaging. “As they do this, organizations will find the value proposition delivered by document capture is very similar to print management - providing great reductions in document processing costs. Including document capture customized to fit within a customer's workflows and environment will enable even better business outcomes.”</p> <p>Here’s a look at five areas where the print management and document capture value propositions converge in Managed Print Services: <br /></p> <p>Authentication <br />- For Print Management Users: Authentication means security at device or “Who are you?” It can involve a variety of methods from PINs to smartcards to biometrics. <br />- For Document Capture Users: Authentication involves a single sign-on in Microsoft Office-based workflows that feeds credentials to downstream business applications such as content management systems.</p>
