In its Magic Quadrant report, Gartner identifies that innovative Managed Workplace Services give organizations a competitive edge, with the workplace as the front line of digital change and employee engagement. Gartner says: “With the workplace as the front line of digital change and employee engagement, innovative managed workplace services give organizations a competitive edge.”
Fujitsu maintains a strategic approach to Managed Workplace Services, recognizing that the focus has shifted to transformation of the workplace as a key enabler of digital capabilities, and away from straightforward cost reduction. As businesses transform in this digital era, they aim to enhance their workers’ ability to realize their own potential and add value. Increasingly, Fujitsu believes this demands the ability of providers to offer solutions and devices that accommodate the blurring of personal and work life, and employees’ resulting expectations of flexibility and convenience.
Fujitsu believes that unlocking digital potential requires the skills of a managed services vendor that can deliver context-aware services, provided via a simple, automated digital user experience. This seamless access to the right services at the right location, delivered at the right time, in a way that users want, ensures workers gain access to the right data and the functionality they need to be effective.

And we believe that Gartner’s recognition underlines our strong focus on skillful service delivery, a clear market vision, and ongoing, active efforts to build and improve our competencies.
