🏢 The Office Exodus: What Does It Mean for Copiers? 🏢
When offices shrink, where do the copiers go?
Is the traditional office going the way of the dodo? According to a Knight Frank survey, about half of large multinationals are planning to cut office space by 10 to 20% in the next three years. “Better but less space is probably the strap line for the larger organizations,” says Lee Elliott, a commercial real estate expert at Knight Frank.
This downsizing trend has significant implications for the managed print services industry. With less office space, the demand for large-scale copier setups could decline, pushing the industry to innovate and adapt.

The survey also found that 56% of companies are opting for a hybrid work model, which could mean a shift in how copiers and printers are utilized, possibly leaning more towards decentralized, smaller units that cater to flexible work environments.
