Retarus Press Release:
Cloud Platforms Replace Traditional Paper and Print Landscapes
Retarus again named a Sample Vendor for Enterprise Level Cloud Faxing in Gartner Hype Cycle for Imaging and Print Services, 2017
Munich, 12.09.2017 // In the course of digitalization and dematerialization, many companies are opting for cloud services to process business-critical information, such as orders or invoices. An increasing number of businesses are giving up their traditional peripheral devices, like printers and fax machines, and replacing them with innovative services. According to Gartner’s August 2017 Hype Cycle for Imaging and Print Services, 2017 report, “Cloud fax providers now support many of the enterprise class service levels that enterprises expect, from regulatory certifications, to rigid service levels, to professional services to assist with both out-of-the-box and custom API integrations.”
The digital transmission of critical data in particular entails significant challenges. In addition to meeting exacting requirements with regard to security and quality, it is also always necessary to take heed of legal guidelines that are growing ever more stringent, for instance the new European data protection regulation GDPR.
