Newton, MA (PRWEB) February 23, 2009
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), will host a live Webcast called "Eastern European Small Business Printer Opportunity: A Kano Study of Print Requirements" on Thursday, February 26, 2009, at 7 a.m. EST (or 12:00 GMT). The Webcast will be presented by Larry Jamieson, director of Lyra's Hard Copy Industry Advisory Service; Peter Mayhew, senior European analyst; and Jiqiang Rong, director of primary research, and it will focus on printing opportunities in four select Eastern European countries -- the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Russia.
The Webcast will also discuss Lyra's current plans to undertake a large multiclient study that will size these four Eastern European markets, identify vertical market trends, provide critical insight to help hardware and supplies vendors develop their in-country sales programs, and deliver a Kano analysis of the product features and benefits for customers in these four countries. The Webcast will also feature a tutorial about Kano analysis, and will explain how this type of analysis identifies key features that end users must have.
"One of the things that the Webcast will examine is how the countries of Eastern Europe definitely represent untapped demand. However, there are many factors that will play into profit opportunities, such as the general trend toward lower-priced hardware and lower print volumes," said Larry Jamieson, director of Lyra Research's Hard Copy Industry Advisory Service. "Vendors need to be smart when making plans to address these emerging markets, and our multiclient study can provide them with a realistic assessment of the opportunities available."
