“Enterprise-Level Cloud Faxing” on the “Plateau of Productivity”
Gartner Hype Cycle: Retarus listed as a Sample Vendor
Being on the “Plateau of Productivity” means that ”the real-world benefits of the technology are demonstrated and accepted. Tools and methodologies are increasingly stable as they enter their second and third generations. Growing numbers of organizations feel comfortable with the reduced level of risk; the rapid growth phase of adoption begins. Approximately 20% of the technology’s target audience has adopted or is adopting the technology as it enters this phase.“
According to Gartner, the critical driver for this development is the growing importance of cloud computing. “The influence of the cloud is being felt in new services like cloud printing and faxing, disrupting traditional perceptions of printing technology”, says Gartner.¹ “We continue to work closely with our customers to develop enterprise messaging products that ensure maximum flexibility and drive innovative digital customer interactions”, says Bernhard Hecker, Director Product Management at Retarus. “We believe being named by Gartner as a sample vendor reinforces our fax service value to our customers.”
