Managed Print "Oki States 70% of Companies Will.."

"Your Print Business is Quickly Disappearing" is an announcement I received from Okidata.

More than 70 percent of businesses are projected to be under an MPS contract by 2012

That being the case, consider these facts:

FACT: IT Spending is down by 3 - 18% through 2011
FACT: Print Hardware Sales are down by 30%+
FACT: Managed Print Services (MPS) is growing by 27%, annually
FACT: Many of your competitors are growing their profit by 97%

This was an announcement I picked up from Oki today. In three years 70% of all companies will be under and MPS agreement? Geez, where is that number coming from, I do agree that most large firms need to move to MPS, it's just a question if the move will be to less expensive Multifunctional Systems from the like of Ricoh, Canon, Xerox and KonicaMinolta or just a wholesale replacement of all the printers once the MPS contract has been signed.

I'm keeping an eye on it.
