These assessments are based on the IDC MarketScape methodology to evaluate the products and services of vendors in respective areas, and analyze each vendor’ capabilities to meet changing customer needs especially in the recently decentralizing workforce. The "Worldwide Cloud MPS Hardcopy 2022 Vendor Assessment*1" focuses on cloud-based contractual print services such as MPS to manage device usage, and the "Worldwide Print in the Distributed Workforce 2022 Vendor Assessment*2" evaluates products and services that supports document and printing workflows in a workforce combining the office and home.

In addition to providing MFPs and printers with outstanding environmental and economic performance as well as a variety of software that enhances security or allows operational integration such as document capture and management, Kyocera is strengthening ECM/CSP solutions which enable comprehensive control and utilization of information throughout the enterprise. Based on this broad range of solutions, Kyocera was recognized for providing services that best meet changing customer needs including the decentralizing workforce.

As the workforce is diversifying from traditional offices to home and satellite offices, Kyocera will continue to meet the needs of its customers with hardware, solutions and services that help them improve productivity and address their challenges.
