It may surprise you to learn that printers were among the first IoT-enabled components of business.

Today the average Lexmark printer is equipped with more than 120 sensors dedicated to collecting data. This data is gathered from the millions of Lexmark devices under management worldwide and stored in the proprietary Lexmark IoT Hub—a single, globally managed print services platform that feeds intelligence to Lexmark’s R&D and customer service functions, helping us build better products and solutions, and better serve our customers.

The latest IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Contractual Print and Document Services cites Lexmark’s “investments in key technology areas such as analytics, IoT, and big data systems” as a differentiator that “drives customer value across all key metrics: service implementation, delivery, support, pricing models, and infrastructure.”
