Weymouth, MA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Despite continued weakness in the U.S. economy, American print service providers are investing in transformative technology such as web-to-print, cross-media marketing and workflow automation solutions to future-proof their business. InfoTrends’ Global & North American Print Production Workflow Market Forecast: 2011-2016 shows a 9.3% growth in software vendors’ revenues in 2011 and projects a 7.8% CAGR until 2016.
The high investment appetite is the result of dramatic and rapid changes in the way people communicate, which forces enterprises, service providers, and software suppliers to respond to new market realities. Interactive, customized, multi-channel communications are quickly becoming the norm, and the rise of Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service business models accelerates this transition. For service providers, not only do they need to operate at razor-sharp margins, they also need to diversify their business with value-added services. Print production workflow software is essential for achieving both objectives.
“Despite the economic situation, we’re seeing good levels of interest in print production software solutions”, commented Kaspar Roos, Associate Director of InfoTrends’ Production Workflow & Customized Communications Solutions Services. “We expect the market to show healthy growth in the years to come, driven primarily by services expansion and business model innovation, e.g. through Software-as-a-Service and cloud computing.”
