Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands – 20 February 2019: KYOCERA has been named a Leader within the field of Smart Multi-Function Peripherals (MFPs) in the IDC MarketScape: Western Europe Smart Multifunction Peripheral 2018 Vendor Assessment, doc #EMEA44808019, February 2019.
The news comes as the company continues to expand its product ranges with increasing innovation in its products, introducing integrated software elements whilst maintaining an environmentally friendly focus.
“It is a proud moment for KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe to be included as a Leader in Smart MFPs by the IDC MarketScape as it reflects our hard work and growth in the past few years,” said Takuya Marubayashi, President of KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe.
As the organisation begins a new year with further developments expected in a range of markets, the positioning of the organisation’s core products as a Leader in Western Europe provides a strong foothold to build on in 2019.
This will be accompanied by further developments, such as the 2018 launches of extensions to both the ECOSYS and TASKalfa ranges, whilst also diversifying with products including KYOCERA Capture Manager which expanded the company’s portfolio in the software industry.
The success also recognises KYOCERA’s unique philosophy, created by company founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori, who believes that “unrivalled effort must be a relentless daily practice” as “every great achievement is an accumulation of tedious effort”.
