Lexmark International, Inc. has been positioned by leading industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of their 2012 MFP and Printer Magic Quadrant. Gartner issues independent multivendor reports that position vendors based on their “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.”
In the report, Gartner defines Leaders as the following: Leaders are the most capable in providing MFPs (including SMFPs), printers and the associated printing solutions and services, regardless of customer location. Providers in the Leaders quadrant offer the most extensive product portfolio relative to their peers, and they have the broad channel capability to deliver the products to customers where they want to procure them.
Leaders hold consistently high market share worldwide and are capable of delivering consistent service levels in the regions where Gartner customers are located. Leaders tend to have the deepest global capability and the inventiveness and resources, skills and vision to deliver superior levels of support to existing and future customers globally. Leaders have a proven track record of channeling R&D initiatives into products and solutions that customers need.
As evidenced by Lexmark’s recent laser product announcement, the company is extending its leadership in smart MFPs with several next-generation devices, that when combined with the Perceptive Software portfolio, increase productivity by enabling users to submit and access their data at the right time and in the right format. With a wide breadth of laser product offerings, Lexmark can provide the best product to address a customer’s unique requirements.
“Lexmark’s smart printers and MFPs are designed to be intelligent in order to increase our customer’s productivity and flexibility,” said Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Imaging Solutions and Services. “When we combine Lexmark’s innovative hardware with world-class services and Perceptive’s software portfolio, we can provide a broad array of industry-specific solutions that are completely adaptable to any customer’s environment to best meet their needs.”
