The six 2017 (and beyond) trends driving mobile print

This time of year is traditionally one of reflection on the past and contemplation of the next 365 days ‘round the sun. It’s especially a useful time to get out the figurative crystal ball to consider current and rising trends, and see where the future lies.

So with that, here are the six trends to watch for in 2017 – and beyond – that will drive the continued rise of mobile print.

1 – Print is here to stay. This is a fundamental driver of the move to mobile printing – our desire and need to print isn’t going away any time soon. Instead, mobile printing will create more options for organizations, letting employees and users print from anywhere when they need to.

What will change: The value of what we print will increase, because we won’t print out every single email we receive or article we come across – just the very important stuff.
