Other market leaders include Lexmark, HP, Ricoh and Canon. Quocirca noted that Lexmark showed strong growth and continued investment in and enhancement of both its MPS and ECM portfolios.
“Lexmark’s unique portfolio of industry specific business solutions and managed print services delivers unmatched value to organisations of all sizes,” said Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Imaging Solutions and Services.
“We take great pride in the ongoing recognition of our MPS business, our industry-leading MPS renewal rates and our continued high win rates with large, global organisations.”

Quocirca believes that continued investment to drive enhanced service performance through predictive analytics and a focus on consistent delivery through integrated back-end platforms is ultimately what sets the leading providers apart.
