“Nuance continues to lead the print and document management software vendor market with its Equitrac, SafeCom, and Output Manager solutions,” said Holly Muscolino, research vice president of document solutions at IDC and co-author of the report. “Though the printing equipment manufacturers that Nuance partners with frequently have their own ‘homegrown’ solutions, Nuance products are often the product of choice for larger enterprises with extensive fleets of multi-brand devices.”

Nuance’s print management solutions enable organizations to gain control of their entire print environment by reducing costs and bolstering security. To make printing more efficient and reduce the burden on IT, Nuance software focuses on four key areas: security and authentication, hardware fleet optimization, consumables cost reduction and network infrastructure.

“Nuance continues to be a leader in the device and print management market, not only from the perspective of market share but also in terms of ongoing development. Nuance continues to innovate in terms of vertically focused solutions, document and data security, enterprise-grade infrastructure, and a unified platform for capture and print,” noted Muscolino.

“Security remains the top priority for IT departments with 70 percent of companies having experienced a data breach through printing,” said Michael Rich, executive vice president and general manager at Nuance Document Imaging. “With Equitrac, Output Manager and SafeCom, Nuance ensures that customers leave no document unsecured, no penny unturned, and no worker unconnected.”
