Cloud-based management print services are the secret to running an efficient and modern business, according to HP's category manager for printing for South Africa Nosipho Simelane.


Companies that revolve around a traditional printing environment often fall short because of the high maintenance costs, security risks and how time consuming it can be, said Ms Simelane.


According to IT Web, cloud-based managed print services and document management solutions can address these challenges and significantly improve the working environment. She said: "With cloud-based document workflow, printing, document management and workflow data are centralised and thus easier to monitor and manage."


The expert added that, by implementing managed print services, businesses could reduce their printing costs by up to 30 per cent, as well as increasing the overall efficiency of the workplace. Improving the print environment is all about "reconstructing the flow", says Ms Simelane, with the cloud having "reinvented" printing by allowing firms to keep all scanned and printed documents on a shared cloud.
