HP Unveils Imaging and Printing Devices, Solutions and Services for Enterprises
Introduces industry's first comprehensive solutions business partner accreditation, certification and test programPALO ALTO, Calif., April 8, 2008
HP today announced a broad expansion of its imaging and printing portfolio for large businesses.
The company's latest offerings help enterprises manage, secure and simplify their imaging and printing environments and improve workflows to reduce costs and enhance productivity.
The new offerings include six HP LaserJet printers, an enterprise-class scanner for document capture, three access control printing solutions, four printing services and an accreditation, certification and test program for HP's software solution development partners.
HP also extended the reach of its $300 million "What Do You Have To Say?" global interactive marketing campaign to target large businesses. In the expansion, print and online advertising and interactive tools will showcase how 3M worked with HP to globally reduce its device count by 47 percent and save more than $3 million in just two years.
"HP has cultivated three factors essential to the global enterprise business: people, partnerships and portfolio," said Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. "We have quadrupled the total contract value of HP Managed Print Services, bolstered our Print 2.0 strategy with the recent acquisition of Exstream Software and expanded our focus on imaging and printing solutions that help customers optimize their infrastructure, manage their environment and improve workflows."
HP customer quality assurance for partner solutions
The new HP Solutions Business Partner Accreditation, Certification and Test program (ACT) is the industry's first to accredit partners' internal processes, review their designs and certify their solutions. The program gives customers confidence in the quality and feature richness of the solution, while reducing their implementation time and support costs.
Through the ACT program, HP ensures that the partner's internal development and support processes are pre-qualified using HP's stringent criteria and that applications have been tested to work with HP devices and software. Partners in the program must demonstrate consistent, high-quality delivery of specific solutions built on HP's software development kits and the HP Open Extensibility Platform.
Ten partners, including Assentis, Capella Technologies, Captaris, Equitrac, Jetmobile, Kofax, MPI, Omtool, Pharos Systems and ReadSoft, are now accredited and have specific solutions in the certification process.
Imaging and printing security
The new HP Access Control Printing Solutions are designed to help mitigate security and compliance risks, prevent fraud, protect data privacy and enhance device fleet management. The solutions include:
Expanded device and document capture portfolio
Customers using the six new HP LaserJet devices can improve their adherence to security and compliance regulations in addition to increasing productivity. The product rollout includes:
In addition, HP expanded its document capture portfolio by introducing the HP Scanjet N9120 Document Flatbed Scanner. As HP's first dedicated enterprise departmental-class scanner, the fast A3 flatbed scanner offers 50 ppm and versatile paper handling with an automatic document feeder. The HP Scanjet N9120 easily integrates with HP Web Jetadmin print management software and includes Kofax Virtual ReScan Professional.
New toner formulation reduces energy consumption
HP's newly enhanced low-melt toner formulation reduces energy consumption. The toner, available with the new HP LaserJet P4015/4014, is designed to melt at lower temperatures, yet deliver print quality consistency at faster print speeds.
As a result, it requires 15 percent less energy to reach fusing temperature - enabling a 10 to 15 percent improvement in printing system energy consumption per page.(2)
Boost business productivity with new services
The four new services HP introduced help customers identify opportunities to improve the efficiency of their imaging and printing infrastructure and workflows.
The four assessment services include:
Building upon HP's "What do you have to say?" campaign, which was introduced to the consumer and small to medium business market segments in August 2007, the new "Alternative Thinking About Printing" enterprise campaign is designed to inspire and empower customers to work with HP to optimize their imaging and printing infrastructures, manage their device environments and improve workflows.
The Print 2.0 Planner, a component of the interactive campaign, helps enterprise customers optimize their imaging and printing infrastructures by revealing their potential to strategically achieve business goals by effectively managing their networks.

HP recently closed the acquisition of Exstream Software LLC. Exstream software solutions streamline the creation and delivery of personalized documents and other communications materials.
