EveryonePrint has today announced that it has acquired One Q, creators of the One Q Secure Cloud Print Management solution. The move, which will see a team of experienced people, including developers and engineers, join the EveryonePrint cohort, will enable the company to rapidly strengthen its offer to address ever-changing market needs and make cloud printing accessible to more customers and partners.
The second edition of Quocirca’s landmark Print 2025 market insight study revealed that more organisations are taking advantage of cloud-based print management, with 73% of respondents stating they expect to increase usage by 2025. The global pandemic has provoked a further acceleration in the adoption of cloud technologies, with 71% of print industry executives responding to Quocirca’s COVID-19 Business Impact Survey stating that they expect demand for cloud-based print management to expand. EveryonePrint will be drawing on the collective expertise of One Q and technologies such as One Client, designed to support its public cloud solution, to flex and scale to meet this increased demand, thus cementing its position as a leader in the cloud printing market.
The acquisition of One Q brings together two companies focused on consistently delivering innovative, best-of-breed technology offerings. The transaction also adds significant capabilities to EveryonePrint’s overall proposition for the channel.
“The strategic combination of EveryonePrint and One Q will build upon the success of EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform (HCP), our multi-tenant Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud print infrastructure platform,” said Tavs Dalaa, CEO, EveryonePrint. “Demand for HCP has exceeded all our projections, we have seen a 300 per cent growth over the past 12 months. This investment provides us with the opportunity to rapidly scale and will further strengthen our ability to support our global partners as they strive to meet the pressing requirement to accelerate cloud adoption.”
One Q’s solutions are compatible with almost all printers and MFPs; in private, public and hybrid clouds; (as well as onsite local area networks) and support more than 20 different languages. “Extending our technical capability and R&D resource, marks a significant opportunity for our channel partners and their customers. Through the delivery of future-proof cloud technologies and services, we will empower our partners to accelerate their customers’ migration to the cloud, reduce the cost and complexity associated with a traditional print environment, and ultimately achieve business growth,” Dalaa added.
“We are excited about the collaboration, the team at One Q bring a wealth of knowledge and customer relationships gained from more than 15 years in business. By bringing the two entities together, we can expedite development on future products and ultimately deliver on our strategic goal to be the No.1 cloud platform for print infrastructure,” he concluded.
