"Cloud printing" is a remote network printing service built on modern digital communications through the establishment of computerised and logistics systems with advanced printing technology. It is defined as a "cloud computing" business model applied in the printing process, management and cloud platforms. On the other hand, the Group is a "cash-cow" business with strong cash in-flow and healthy financial status, growing eprint as Hong Kong's largest printing service provider which covers both online self-service ordering platforms and retail stores.
