Canon unveils findings from Office Insights report
According to the report, digital documents are quickly becoming an integral part of workplace productivity.
Canon, a developer and manufacturer of imaging and optical products, has recently unveiled the results of its Office Insights report.
Findings from the report showed an increasing trend in MENA towards digitisation, which is credited in driving increased productivity and quality of service.
Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director, Canon Middle East and Canon Central and North Africa, said: "It's clear that businesses across regional markets are being empowered by innovative technology, and are welcoming futuristic ways of working to drive growth."
He added: "However, it is not without its set of challenges and therefore it is crucial we address concerns and provide the right level of guidance for each unique market, to ensure businesses are making informed and beneficial technology investments.
"The insight the report has given us means we can better address the unique pain points of each region, and raise awareness to support the markets as they use the right technologies to improve office processes."
The report found that 76% of MENA organisations believe that printing or copying documents is "essential". Furthermore, while 39% saw scanning as continuing to be relevant, mutlti-functional devices (MFDs), such as all-in-one printers, scanners and copiers, have significantly improved productivity for around 50% of all end-users. MFD usage has also increased by 38%.
Canon's Office Insights 2016 report was compiled from responses from business decision-makers and end-users from across Europe, Eurasia, and MEA.
