KEVIN PROGRAMMED HIS FIRST COMPUTER, an Ohio Scientific, in high school in 1979. The thrill of that experience started him down a path of continual discovery that he maintains to this day. A student of nearly everything in his life, Kevin believes strongly in the value of endless learning. He is constantly taking on projects around the house that begin with taking things apart that he may not be able to put back together. He often has a similar strategy with his golf swing.

Whether it’s alone or with friends, Kevin enjoys playing golf — something that he can never master. He is especially proud of his wife and two daughters and the laughter they share.

“I am most proud when I see my colleagues growing and enjoying life with each other, and when I hear that we have made life a little easier for our clients. It is my goal for Pharos to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of everyone we touch. Anytime I see that promise being delivered it is a good day.”

In this recorded webinar, we share our views on print industry trends for 2017 and the Pharos response to those market drivers. Topics include:

Security: Security-related topics will continue to dominate the headlines and capture the attention of business leaders and IT professionals in 2017 and beyond. Over the next 5 years, spending on cybersecurity is expected to top 1 trillion dollars. This is also one of the top themes in the print industry today and it continues to be one of our top priorities at Pharos, as we work to help our customers secure their printing workflows.

Usability and administrative efficiency: People have come to expect software that’s easy to understand and use. We continue to strive to make our solutions intuitive for both administrators and end users.

Actionable data analytics: The best analytics tools help people take effective actions in support of their corporate objectives. Pharos Beacon gives IT managers and business unit leaders the intel and decision support they need to lower printing costs and track progress over time.
