Have you ever used a product and thought: "They should have made it so it could …?"
Well, here's your chance to get in on the ground floor of product development at HP by becoming a member of our 'Inspire Bright Ideas' panel!
We want the HP products and solutions our customers interact with every day to deliver a highly personal and simple experience that's relevant to their lives.
To accomplish that, our engineers like to incorporate direct customer input early in the development cycle for new innovations. That's why we're expanding our 'Inspire Bright Ideas' panel as a way to fast-track that input to help our products deliver the experience our customers expect and deserve.
Because you can make a difference! By sharing your early insights and experiences with us you can help shape the future of the HP products and services we bring to market.
You don't need to know a lot about the latest gadgets or emerging technologies. All you need to know is what you like or dislike, and what you want out of the technology you evaluate.
With your help, we can validate our ideas and proceed with production... make changes to improve the look, design or function... or change our direction entirely. It depends on what you have to say. Your opinion matters!
What do you have to say? Evaluate HP solutions and share your experiences with us!
You'll also receive special promotions and opportunities to win prizes for your contributions. Join the 'Inspire Bright Ideas' panel and you will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of two $250 American Express Gift Cards.(1) So, there's no better time to make your voice heard.
Once you're a member of the panel, you'll receive our requests to evaluate a product or service via email. We'll ask you to answer a short list of five to ten questions about your experience. Simply send your input back to us by email. That's it.
From then on, we could contact you for your feedback on other inventions a few more times throughout the year. You should know that there is no obligation to provide your input and you can opt out at any time. But why miss a chance to influence the technology of the future?
Visit the 'Inspire Bright Ideas' web site (see box for details) to fill out and submit a brief questionnaire. If you're accepted onto the panel, you'll soon receive your first assignment by email.
So, take a test drive, kick some virtual tires and start to drive the next generation of technology at HP. Join the 'Inspire Bright Ideas' panel today and let us know what you have to say!
